  1. Back in the late 90's the dorms would actually serve Runzas as part of the buffet meal plans. You could take as many as you wanted. They were individually wrapped. We would wear cargo pants and snag entire min-freezers full of Runzas for the next week. Even reheated, they always tasted great. Made for some excellent pregame-tailgates in good old Abel.
  2. Let's see top 10 spring game attendance along with weather and ticket prices. I'm willing to bet a few of those other games were free admission with 70 degree temps.
  3. There are plenty of topics about our coach and athletic director, but I can't recall seeing much about our university president or the board of regents. Aren't these are the people are in charge of UNL? While they have many obligations, one would think that a profitable, multimillion-dollar sports department headlined by football would be high up on their priority list. Anyone who wants to debate academics vs sports can look the other way now. It seems I keep hearing about leadership on our team, and in the athletic department. What about their leadership? Why does't the finger pointing ever go higher? After last night, and my initially apathy wore off, I started thinking about the board of regents specifically. Who are these guys/gals? Do they know what the hell they are doing? Are they the problem? The regents approve all, and seem to have gotten some pretty poor results lately. Not only that, I feel like things are getting worse. Can these people even be replaced if they are part of the problem? Should they be replaced? There have got to be people our there that can put out a great academic product, while still being capable in the sports departments...
  4. Don't let the door shut on someone who is closely approaching the door. Walking faster than me, around 5 steps. Walking my speed or slower, 2-3 steps. Basically, don't let it shut in their face. If they are in any way infirm, carrying something heavy, with kids, etc., basically figure out if holding the door would help them, even if they're pretty far away. If you can help, hold the door.
  5. Thought you were on another site, eh? Whoops! My bad. I hate it when I accidentally type my search inquiries on discussion forums. Happens more then it should You meant DVDA right? Like a thanksgiving turkey!
  6. At work & not able to watch or listen. Cliff's notes on the half pleeeeaaaase?

      Everything sucks, and no one wants to be at the game.

      Well damn. The score doesn't look terrible. Those stats tho...

      RB Newby injured. Out for the game.


      When it rains it pours.

  7. I'm in agreement with the above. Get to the free weights as soon as possible. Many/most machines limit range of motion. Machines Are better than nothing though, especially if you need to build up some confidence with your lifting. Stick with compound movements - squat, bench, row, deadlift. There is an excellent program called AllPro on the bodybuilding.com forums. There's lots of good info on there. There is a good slow steady progression of weight that works very well for many people. Start with low, easy to lift weights. You want to develop muscle memory and begin strengthening not only your muscles, but your central nervous system and your tendons, joints, bones, etc. Lift with good form. Control the weight on both the concentric and eccentric part of the lift. Two seconds up, two seconds down. Compare weight lifting to long distance running. You wouldn't go run a 20K without going on a few 1Ks, 3Ks, and 5Ks. Don't expect to throw around heavy weights the first day either.
  8. We've got to be getting close to Texas in all time wins. Anyone know how many we've got?

      And both Texas and Notre Dame are likely to make coaching changes. They might get worse before they get better.

      We'll likely catch the 'Worns at the end of this season, and pass Notre Dame next year (assuming our own transition doesn't fall on its face).

  9. Thanks for the hard work. Very cool stuff!
  10. With parking pass: Completely worth it. Show up 3-4 hours before game time, bring a folding table, chairs, food, booze, and lots of red solo cups. Without parking pass: Nope.
  11. I sometimes wonder if the government even thinks these things through. Businesses only have so much money. More money doesn't just magically appear to satisfy the needs of these laws. Not without raising prices. Or eliminating costs. And the cost of labor is quickly becoming the most expensive part of running a business. I believe we are going to see "unintended" consequences before these laws actually help people. Businesses are going to increase the use of automation, business owners will eliminating overtime in many positions, additional non-overtime employees will be hired at a lower salaries, and businesses will reduce salaries to compensate for increase in new overtime wages, which would in effect give the employee the same pay rate as before. If you want to help people, have government take a step back and quit wasting taxpayers money on special interests and bureaucracy. Also, forcing wages on businesses as a blanket law across the country is irresponsible and reckless. At the very least, let each state decide, so that there can be some sort of local accountability. At least with the minimum wage laws, on a state level, there is some form of local input to offset the enormous discrepancies between standards of living from state to state.
  12. I know you are trying to be funny, and it actually was a successful attempt. However, this is legitimately the dumbest most profound "decree" I've ever heard. I was actually starting to think it'd be a good thing if Obama was elected for a third term. After this, he's back in the dumpster, never to be revisited again. In all seriousness, while I was trying to be funny, I'm also illustrating that with every law, there is a trickle down of unintended consequences. Even those who fully support a law might just find themselves regretting aspects of the law one day. Even with laws that have the best intentions.
