  1. ...for some reason every time I see the "1890 Initiative" my first instinct is to wonder whether that is the thing we keep hearing about in education. Then I google it and see that is the "1619 Project" - still too close and too weird for me. Time for a new name.
  2. ...others are trying to brush this off as business-as-usual...which unfortunately for Nebraska it is becoming.
  3. ...based on when the person is fired. this person retired. that's completely different. which is what he was referring to, have some balls and make it public the guy was fired. only reason not to do that is to protect Moos and/or cover something up. For a school trying to scrap together $$ to keep the build going throwing $3million to someone who voluntarily exited 18 months short of his comittement isn't exactly an intelligent decision unless you had damn good reason to. Pretty expensive retirement party....
  4. Just curious who else has had an athletic director retire with 18 months left on their contract, but still paid them out for not only the entire sum of the remaining contract but also bonuses based on future metrics the teams have not even yet achieved?
  5. So did pretty much every other coach hired in 18', of which there were plenty. It's kind of amazing to look through the list at the best hires of that year and see how many are already out the door or struggling though. No one would have expected Chip Kelly to be a non-factor in year 3. Mullen/Fisher are trending in the right direction. Taggart, gone from FSU. Joe Moorehead, gone from MSU. Chad Morris, gone from Arkansas. Kevin Sumlin, gone from Arizona. Jeremy Pruitt, gone from TN. Matt Luke, gone from Ole Miss.
  6. - yeah, the mass-exodus that was the purge of Huskerboard a few years ago reduced my posting - and inversely greatly enhanced my productivity. HB has been stifling descent a free speech since long before Facebook & Twitter! (before anyone flips out and bans me this is facetious)
  7. *RUMOR* Mass Exodus Coming - "We'll unlock if said 'exodus' emerges." ....said exodus has emerged.
  8. Just read this from last week: https://theathletic.com/1796343/2020/05/05/nebraska-huskers-football-recruiting-bellevue-west-zavier-betts-micah-riley-keagan-johnson/ still seems iffy to me. depending on an exception
  9. Would have left this one out of your example considering they currently have 7 of the top 10 locked up already. Iowa has done a damn good job this year.
  10. keep seeing comments similar to this. i haven't been following nearly as close as I used to - but for some reason I still thought manning and betts were very much up in the air. without them, that "haul" last class looks pretty mediocre. are we confident both will make it? considering they aren't in a classroom and having to depend on themselves, being accountable to themselves, with no one else holding them accountable...consider me a little worried here if we have to depend on "online classes" to get these two qualified.
  11. I thought I read somewhere that if they sign and don't qualify they still count against the #s - one of the reasons they are saying Betts is waiting.
  12. I'd assume there are processes/batches that recalc this periodically versus just some sort of running total in which case without the original posts and their associated points you might be SOL. I obviously missed something regarding board ownership...but if it has changed hands...think I can bring my bouncing boob avatar back?
  13. ^ exactly - better not to specialize too much anyway.
  14. Not sure if it's been mentioned yet - but Randy Shannon signed a 3 year contract as a DC (UCF). Year's 1 and 2 are 300k, year 3 is 1mill. All guaranteed. Why the difference? Florida's still paying him for 2 more years.
  15. Big Red Commie Location: Planet Earth You sure? maybe you should come back...
  16. Enlighten me please. They played defense, that isn't in MR's plan. Caused turnovers, not something we've been doing. Rushed for 240 yards on 38 attempts. That doesn't sound like a Riley team. Are you maybe talking about the TE's catching the ball? Well that's because of THIS guy...someone who should be a Husker but isn't because of Riley and Co. slow played him if IRC...

  17. We're Nebraska fans, it's what we do. I remember when Russel Wilson was transferring and how that conversation played out on HB. Guy was dog-$h!t, no way we'd want him here. Haha.
  18. maybe at WR specifically...could see that. we don't have a proven passing QB, and haven't had one in a decade.
