  1. Thinking about taking the Wifey on a cruise.. not sure when or where... Ideas from Husker nation on best places to go(no alaskan or cold ones.. tropical only)

      One other piece of advice, the time of year greatly impacts price.  Fall (aka Hurricane Season) is the cheapest, where as winter through spring is more expensive.  Also, we will always fly down to the port a day early, because you never know what will happen with weather/mechanical issues and the ship ain't waiting for you.

      @Enhance Yeah. To me it's like... if I'm going to Mexico, I wanna explore some Mayan ruins or something, not sit around in some tourist bar, you know? Chichen Itza > Cabo Wabo.

      @Red Five Thanks for all the great information. We are looking at RC and Norwegian. At this point I think we are targeting more the east side/ leave from Ft Lauderdale and then cruise down and back--5 days. We have done the all inclusive which are fun but we want to try something different. No idea if a Cruise is for us but worth a shot. We are targeting end of April.

  2. Is getting a subscription to Husker 247 worth it? Looks like it is 53 bucks for a year.... Or just go for the monthly 9.95... Curious for those who have it?

      I'd suggest you invest about half that in getting a subscription to The Athletic and utilize HB and The Recruiting Hour as free resources and spend the remaining money on some Shiner Bock Holiday Cheer.  You'll be much happier that way!

    3. Minnesota_husker


      @Xmas32 Already have an atheletic subscription---It isnt half that, but I do like it. 

      I appreciate everyones advice!

      The Athletic is okay. I probably won't renew next year, though.

  3. Watching Gophers game and PJ Fleck movie for them was the Lion King, comparing them losing to Iowa like Simba having his dad die... Good lord. 

  4. The trolls of other teams are really picking their game up in going after Frost and Nebraska. Had a Gopher fan tweet at me we wouldnt beat them the next half decade. Mocking his hoodie take. 

    Screw 'em. GBR

      Meh... They're about to get slapped back to reality with the back half of their schedule.

    2. Minnesota_husker


      In watching a few gopher games(not by choice), I actually think they beat Northwestern and Iowa no problem. They lose to Penn State and Wisconsin honestly feels like a toss up. The gophers have gelled at the right time. If they would have played a tough non-con they would have 1-2 losses already but they didnt and therefore snuck by. I actually do think they are the 4th best team in the B1G(OSU, PSU, Michigan, MN). 

    3. ZRod


      I think they win Northwestern (but you never know with the nerds), Iowa is a toss up. I think Penn State smokes them. Wisconsin is close, but I would favor the Badgers.

  5. Being in Gopher land is just loads of fun at the moment. 

  6. Mainly getting pity this week for the Husker loss. Usually I get friendly jabs, but it seems like most people are treating me like a loved one died. Gopher fans probably know the pain.

    1. ZRod


      Clemons fan at work, was the same way. Michigan fans are keeping their mouths shut though. Which is nice.

    2. krc1995


      Same. I used to get texts, IMs, even emails. Now nothing.

      @ZRod you tricked her...or was it drugged her :lol:

      Srsly tho, congrats.

      6 of one, half a milligram the other.

  8. 3 wins in a row was nice, but still need to let Miles go. I hope the Hoiberg rumors are true. That all said, I love Tim Miles. I hope he finds a mid-major team and does well. That was a very fun B1G tournament but that doesnt change my concerns of Miles as a coach.

    1. Enhance


      Unfortunately for Miles, I think even winning the NIT isn't enough of a justification. The story is mostly written and I don't think Moos would release an announcement about an announcement if he was planning to retain Miles.

    2. redout22


      Let's hope that Kansas job doesn't open up..

  9. Pretty exciting that we went 3/3 on announcements today. 5 spots open and honestly I hope we are a bit picky with those spots. This class is shaping out to be really good. 

    1. krc1995


      Maybe Juco guys? Or should those guys have already signed? 

    2. krc1995


      Coach F just addreessed lingering needs in order: outside linebacker, pass rusher, receiver. Pretty good presser. He doesn’t hide or dress up the info 

  10. Has anyone discussed the new Alliance football league rosters- Salt Lake City Stallions look like they might be our "Husker" team to cheer for. Armstrong, Newby, Bell, Pierson El and Banderas all on the roster.

      @Minnesota_husker Post in my thread dammit!

    3. ScottyIce


      Looks like Jake Wieneke from SDSU is on the team as well.

    4. Minnesota_husker
  11. With Tyjon and now Bell both leaving it does make me think that Tanner Farmers comment about guys not being on-board is fairly real and this all player meeting actually put some guys feet to the fire. Who knows if people were called out but two guys have transferred....they clearly werent onboard and others seemed to notice.

    1. TAKODA






      It’s been long overdue. 

    2. Decoy73


      Heard from a very reliable source today, who heard third hand from a current player, that there were a lot of "prima donnas" on the team this summer.  Not too surprising, I guess.  I'm sure there are less now.

    3. Minnesota_husker


      @Decoy73 That was my biggest knock on Riley recruits. Seemed to be kids that werent asked to work and that sort of created a bad work ethic. Plenty of Riley's recruits have shown an ability to flip that and put in the work but it shouldnt surprise anyone that some just couldnt get onboard. It happens. It happens to some Frost recruits too. You think you are ready to work hard until all of a sudden you get beat by someone working even harder and you just think life isnt fair. I felt that way when I was 20,21,22.. it happens. 

  12. I thought the Husker loss was depressing... And then the Vikings decided to just poop all over themselves. I seriously reconsidered liking sports after this weekend.

      Shut your stupid face.

    4. Minnesota_husker


      You dont believe that. Maybe Mack or even Nagy... but a below average QB.. Me thinks not.

  13. Gophers RB Rodney Smith is out for the season with a knee injury. HUGE hit for the gophers.

    1. Redux


      Damn, you hate to hear that 

    2. knapplc


      Too bad for the guy. He's a good RB.

    3. teachercd


      Oh man...that sure isn't fuknee.

  14. I can finally share my thoughts and opinions again via the status bar. Sadly, I have no thoughts or opinions. 

  15. I sort of thought we might lose Morrow or Watson but was holding out hope. SE cant cut Miles now, but at this pace I dont think Timmy even makes it through the season.

  16. That Nebrasketball season was depressing. Next year guys... Ill miss you Tai.

  17. Sucky Sucky Sucky. Nebrasketball has zero quit in them but also just cant figure it out at times.

  18. Rumor going around that Jerry Kill got into a shouting match with PJ Fleck when they ran in to eachother at a recruits highschool. Just saw it on a MN board... pretty crazy if true.

      Fleck coached for a year or 2 under Kill at NIU...

      Knapp grew up huntin' critters with Big Eli Wakefield & Daniel Boone...

      Is it really auto correct or is it a learned phrase?

    3. ColoNoCoHusker


      Carl used to email/text a lot to come out here, so...

    4. NUance


      Maybe Carl had auto correct on his phone too.


  22. Start the Les Miles as D-coord rumors now....

    1. Redux


      I heard Les Miles is our new DC

    2. ladyhawke


      Isn't Les Miles an OC minded coach?

  23. 3-0... This team rely on our guards a bit too much but they might be the best set in the country. NEBRASKETBALL

      Conference maybe. UCLA with Ball and Alford and probably a few others better nationally

      CBB is dominated by guard play, Nothing wrong with letting them two take the game over...

    4. QMany


      Kansas backcourt is pretty damn good. Duke (Allen & Kennard) are pretty stout, too.

  24. Saw a graphic talking about B1G recruiting and had Iowa at 22 and Nebraska at 23 for this year.... Too lazy to look if that is true?

    1. ScottyIce


      Yes. Iowas too 2/3 recruits looking to jump though.

  25. I want to watch Lamar Jackson, but listening to Mack Brown is brutal.
