    Redux fixes the playoff

    Here is how I'd fix the playoffs. Id put every team in 8 conferences. If it's the power 5 and selected 3 others to stay or create 8 new ones wouldn't matter as long as all teams are in 8 conferences. By the numbers now that would put 16 with 2 conferences having 17 teams. Each team would play 7 division teams and 2 cross division teams and 3 OOC games. Which would match the 12 games most teams are playing now. First round would then be the conference championships So the tournament would be a 16 team field. It'd give every team a fair shot, with each conference getting in 2 teams to the tournament. It'd make the regular season conference play matter even more. Cause now you have to make the conference championship to get in. Unlike Alabama in 2017, didn't win their division and still got in. It would how ever have 4 teams play one game more than they would in the currently system with 15 and 16 games for the final two teams. If that is still an issue we can go from 3 to 2 OOC games as they wouldn't matter to get back to no more than 15 games. Those that didn't make it past round 1 can then still play in bowl games like we have now. But this system would make it fair for everyone and get rid of the bias of some teams and conferences

    I've been saying the same for awhile. Here is my idea how to have a true national champion Put all teams in the power 5 and 3 other conferences giving a total of 8 conferences. That would put 16 with some having 17 teams in the conference. Each conference will have 2 divisions. Each team will play their 7 division teams, 2 cross division teams and 3 ooc games. Then the first round of the play offs would be the conference championships. With that formula the final four teams would only play 1 more game than they do right now. It would also give every team like UCF currently and Boise State previously a fair shot, where they would never get it in the current system. It wouldn't take away from conference play as it would matter to get to the conference championship. The teams that don't make the 16 team field and those that lost in the first round would then play in bowl games like we have currently. It would also force teams such as Notre Dame to join a conference.

    6+ Team Playoff

    here is my idea to fix this fake national championship playoff. 1. Only have 8 conferences. The amount of teams we have 132 would put 16 to 17 teams in a conference. 2. Each team play their 7 division opponents, 2 cross division opponents and 3 out of conference opponents for 12 games like we play now. 3. The first round of the playoff is the conference championships. This would give every team a shot with each conference getting 2 teams in for the first round only. This would also only create 1 additional game that the 4 in the playoffs play now. This would get rid of the bias of the P5 vs G5 and the SEC. Also would no longer need the playoff commitee or the ranking system.

    Did you ever...

    I use to be in the military. Unless your deployed the units are always changing with personel. As you always move every 2 years or 3 if your married. So every year we would get new sargents and or officers. For the most part it wasn't to bad but the dread was always there. Cause a lot of them would want to do things their way. So the saying was if you don't like whos in charge give it a couple months. You or them would be going to a new duty station. As much of a pain in the arse it was to constantly learn a new way to do something you've been doing for years was. It was much better than the mangement I have at my current job.

    Why Nebraska should hire me as head coach.

    Did I hear someone say defensive genius? Well here I am. I have a lot of coaching experience from 10 year olds all the way up NFL. I got a lucky break and became a Raiders coach via Madden in 95. Within 2 years I became the defensive coordinator. I'm proud to say we have yet to ever give up a touchdown at all. I once heard one great coordinator but sh**ty head coach say something like coaching at Oakland and Nebraska is very similar. So if I can coach excelence and not allow a touchdown here. Imagine what I can do there with actual talent.

    board or username issues?

    I've been having issues with my user name I would assume. It started last year just been busy to report it. When I come here for news I look at topics without signing in. Normally going through the new content option. Well I get multiple pages of current topics posters are responding in. When I go to log in to respond myself. When I click on new topics it'll show just a couple topics or none at all. When just a moment ago without logging in had 4 pages. any idea what could be possibly causing this?

    UAB

    I have a feeling that with the changing landscape of college athletics, maybe they were trying to divert funds to the 2 big programs instead of spending money to upgrade UAB. That's my conspiracy theory on it, anyway Thats possible of what others are thinking of possibly going on. If it's true then Southern Alabama, Troy and i feel as if i'm missing one is doomed. I seen a report that UAB is having a financial firm look into the money to see if they can still field a team. Stated it is possible to start the program again as early as 2016 depending on the financial review.

    UAB

    I listen to 93.7 the ticket. Last week the national morning show was talking about this. They were saying that UAB athletic department was making money. The boosters and fans are still fighting to keep the team. Plus the collective feel is it was being shut down not because of money but because of outside influences from Alabama namely Nick Saban. I have no idea why they would think this way or what Nick would have to do with it. But it's sad to see the program go away.

    Your Worst Date Story...

    after reading these mine will probably seem a little tame but here we go. I was 17 going on a first date with the girl from Weeping Water. Shortly after picking her up and heading out of town to Lincoln. My cousin who was a county sheriff happened to see me. Well as normal he would pull me or my brothers over to see if our parents were home. Well he pull me over this time, which instantly sent her into panic mode. My cousin who must of seen this. Decided to tap on the window with his flash light telling me to step out of the car, you know lets make this worse. After telling him my parents were home we were on our way. I tried explaining the whole situation but I don't think she bought it. As I never got a second date, i'm sure it wasn't me but if so i'll still blame my cousin. Now from here I can only assume he instantly went and talked to my parents. As it was bout 15 minutes later. I get a phone call with my mom in the background laughing hysterically being asked how my date is going so far. This one I can't take credit for as it happened to my brother. He went on a first date with a girl he wanted to date for months. Well she comes to the house meets all of us and was thrilled to get to ride in his mustang. Well she asked where they were eating. He joked well where ever the car breaks down we'll eat at the closest place within walking distance. His car has been worked on a lot put in a powerful motor as he use to street race but recently started throwing fan belts. Now When he told her that she thought he was kidding. We were laughing cause we knew he wasn't. Sure enough they went to a parking lot that had a lot of muscle cars in it. When they went to go eat. The motor threw the fan belt as he started it. So they walked to Taco Bell just down the street. If I remember right I think she called someone to come pick her up lol.
  14. I caught one at a Lincoln Stars game a few years ago. The thing curved and swerved like it was thrown by a MLB pitcher. The Stars must have more money than UNL as it came with ketchup and relish packets lol. This is more of an outdoor activity since it's firing projectiles. However a lot funnier in the ice box. I've seen many hotdogs explode on the back wall over peoples heads.

    The Walking Dead

    I'm liking the idea of a 90 minute episode. As for the W's on the walkers. I was thinking it was Morgan, since we haven't seen him in a while he's due to return. But yall mentioning the group called Wolves has me thinking it's probably them. As far the big conflict next week. I bet it starts with Rick and Pete again. Pete will be exiled from Alexandria and he will lead the group back to them.
