  1. This is how we became Kansas. Also, this is what Stockholm syndrome looks like.
  2. I have a Deion Sanders rookie card from when he was apparently with the Yankees and had a jheri curl. I don't know if it's worth anything but it's still my favorite card.
  3. I really don't know what to expect here. On paper we should beat Purdue. On paper we should have beat Illinois and Minnesota as well, but those games weren't as competitive as the final score indicated. Those teams beat the snot out of us. It would be in character for this team to get thumped by Purdue but then make it competitive against Ohio State. If we win convincingly then it'll be confirmed that I'm the good luck guy because the Northwestern game was my first game in AGES and that looked like real Nebraska football. Then I'll be honor-bound to attend every Husker game for the rest of my life. As for the rest of the season, we need 3 Ws to earn a bowl game. I don't know if Frost has the coaching chops to rally the troops but we shall see.
  4. I totally agree. I had such high hopes for this team after the Northwestern game. Sigh.
  5. Is that . . . is that a real quote? It's should be perfectly clear it's his mouth that gets him in trouble.
  6. Nobody will try to defend it because it's indefensible. They'll simply complain about you complaining and the irony will be lost on them.
  7. To answer your question, no. Never been. I'm not much of a fisherman myself, but the best trout spot I've stumbled upon is at Lake Ogallala, across the dam from Lake McConaughey. There's a point where the lake, a canal, and the Platte River all damn near meet. From the canal part my dad and I both pulled our limit of trout in the amount of time it took to get a sunburn on the tops of my feet. There was some fellows pulling big ol' channel cats from the same spot.
  8. 1 or 2 away from what? Having a .500 record? Sure, I suppose. Sounds like a desperate coach trying to blame the players he recruited and coached up.
  9. 6-6 in year 5 was not the goal anyone had in mind when Frost was hired. It's astonishing how far expectations have fallen around here.
  10. You've had ample time and opportunity to explain how Frost deserves a 5th year, yet here you are still holding an empty bucket. There's not a single coach on the planet who thinks "I won't take a job unless they let me have 5 losing seasons in a row". Get a grip man. If you take the job at Nebraska the worst that can happen is you'll fail and become rich beyond you're wildest dreams. That's the worst case scenario. Any claim that a coach wouldn't consider the job because we fired a coach after 4 disastrous seasons is preposterous.
  11. I expect more. It just doesn't make sense to invent oddly specific requirements nobody will be able to meet, then use that as justification to keep the current guy, who also isn't meeting them. We should absolutely expect more, as far as wins are concerned.
  12. Maybe he will, maybe he won't. If he does, both you and I know it's not based on merit.
  13. Wait, has Frost done all this? You hit the reset button if you think you can get a coach who can do better than what the current coach has done. You don't invent a bunch of oddly specific standards you're not even holding the current coach to.
  14. None if this explains what he's done to earn a 5th year.
  15. You're acting like people are reacting to this one game when the entire Frost era has been a complete disaster. He didn't deserve the last 2 years. He only got them because he's a legend as a player. Don't say he deserves a 5th. You won't get away with it.
  16. Looks like a good schedule to break in a new coach. Let's say Frost manages to keep his job this year. Then he manages to eek out 6 or 7 wins with next year's schedule. Then what? We're 5-7 the following year and he gets canned anyway? Maybe the wise decision would be ripping the band-aid off sooner rather than later.
  17. These losses aren't entirely Martinez's fault, and he's highly productive at times. That being said, the simple statement that he's a choke artist should be about as controversial as saying water is wet.
  18. The defense wasn't playing great last week, but I was willing to give it a pass. This is bulls#!t.
  19. Remember when Frost was s#!t-talking Fleck's "sloganeering" for no good reason? Wonder why the other team is more motivated. Frost sure talks a lot of s#!t for a guy who never backs it up.
  20. It's time for the offense to start carrying their weight for a change.
  21. Huskers by 14+ Husker defense gets a couple turnovers.
  22. I rushed to judgement on Chinander. He could conceivably land a G5 job. Maybe in a few years, if the defense holds, a P5 job.
