  1. Link? Also, any word on crossover games, or when the ohio state michigan game will be played?
  2. Did anybody else misread this thread title at first as "Pornographic evidence that James Dobson is the Man?" I'd like to think there's nothing wrong with me, but I'm not sure... To be clear though, I definitely did NOT enter the thread until I got the title right..... not that there's anything wrong with that.
  3. One of my favorite Osborne-isms was, I think in 1994, people were still being all pissy about him not winning a national championship yet, and he said something to the effect of, "Yeah, I think if I don't win a national championship, people are actually going to engrave that failure on to my tombstone... I don't really care though, since I'll be dead." Osborne had a way of flipping people off without them knowing it. Pretty fantastic.
  4. This makes me hate the press, not Bo. I agree with you though, that is probably what the media will do. That's why the media blows. I just sort of see that as the nature of the beast. It's part of the job, and you gotta be able to deal with it. Media's doing their own job too, and they are people after all. They'll be more inclined to write nice things about people who they respect than people who they don't and who treat them like dirt. Being the HC is more than just taking care of a program at this level; you have to be the face and ambassador of the program. All told though

  7. what? how is being curt to the media the same as saying and doing whatever he pleases, whenever he pleases, as long as he wins? So those tantrums during the game and constantly chewing out players and dropping f-bombs is alright? It's football. Bo is grooming these young men for the rest of their lives. Talk about setting a good example. See, I can remove part of what you said and make it look like something different, too! Youre upset because I removed the part about Charlie McBride being colorful? Give me a break. Have you ever met Charlie? I hav

  9. Other than not saying who the starting QB is, I'm not sure what Bo has done. And its not so much that he hasn't named the starting quarterback. I really dont care much about that. Im just sick of HOW he interacts with the media. His answers to questions are so short and worthless that he might as well not even show up to press conferences, especially after losses. He could certainly use a coach when it comes to dealing with the media. Get a little charm and disarm going. At the same time, unless the media starts asking better questions, press conferences aren't going to get b
  10. what? how is being curt to the media the same as saying and doing whatever he pleases, whenever he pleases, as long as he wins? So those tantrums during the game and constantly chewing out players and dropping f-bombs is alright? It's football. Charlie McBride was pretty colorful too, you might recall. Bob Devaney wasn't exactly a saint either.
  11. What does this mean? Other than not saying who the starting QB is, I'm not sure what Bo has done. The players haven't said anything offensive either. So, what are you talking about?
  12. This is the other thing that bugs me about this discussion. Bo Pelini doesn't have ANY obligation to tell the media who the starting QB is. It's college football, it's not like he's withholding testimony in a murder trial. Everybody go play some golf or something, take your mind off football for a couple hours, and you'll find out who the starting QB is in just about 3 more days. Also, on another note, I really hope they run the Wildcat formation on the first play, so that Rex Burkhead is technically the starting QB, just to mess with everyone.
  13. I agree with what you're saying about "perception." However, I don't think we as fans or as Nebraskans should really care about how other people perceive us. If they think we're the nicest fans they've ever met goshdarnit, well good. If they think we're a bunch of angry jerks, fine. I don't really care what other fans or what the media thinks. As long as Bo is teaching football, and teaching life lessons, holding student-athletes to a high standard on and off the field, I could care less about a fan or journalist from another state who doesn't know anything about our program to begin with comi
  14. This is correct. Mack Brown will schmooze with the media all day, without saying more than Bo does in 2 minutes. If you're hiring a campaign spokesman or a White House press secretary, you want someone more like Mack Brown. Bo Pelini is a football coach - let him coach football. If the media wants him to be more friendly, they should learn more about the game and try to ask Bo in depth questions about the game. Then I'm sure they'd get a more animated and excited Bo in press conferences, and frankly, fans like myself would appreciate it. But the media has spent the last, oh i dunno, 4 months a
  15. Sounds fair. But you are right he needs to win. If we lose 4 games this year he will be on the hot seat. This is stupid.
  16. I think the closest thing to a team motto at Nebraska is "Finish." And if that motto produces the same results that "Unfinished Business" did in 1994, I'm more than ok with it.
  17. Rome also said on his TV show that Suh was a great guy off the field, and a nasty guy on the field. He says he needs to dial it down a notch, but also conceded that he thought the hit was kind of awesome.
  18. 66-14 Hard not to run up the score when your 3rd string QB is also competing for the starter spot. Also, the Blackshirts give up a couple TD's before adjusting to Western Kentucky's new coaching staff.
  19. Your sig is so big (file/rendering-wise) that it will cause the video to chunk. I have to minimize the browser so I don't have so many of your posts visable. I have the same issue when Nexus posts I had to turn off the signatures at work cuz the lag was making me craaaazzy. By the way, nice vid epocSoN Me too.
  20. Did anybody hear Rome's take on his show this morning?
  21. Yes, I'm certain that the tunnel walk was to blame for that loss. Their arms were ruined after the arm in arm walk, how else do you explain the fumbles? Arm in arm? Why would you want to emasculate the entire team right before kickoff? No white skirts with red stripes available? I don't want to dosie-do with a dude right before playing football. Seriously, guys? Nobody else remembers the greatest and most vicious college football team of all time entering the field holding hands? Didn't seem to affect their ability to completely physically dominate everyone they played.
  22. Why are people arguing about this? Yes, Sipple tweeted that Martinez has a "buzz" which he said like 4 months ago, and other than that there's NOTHING new to this storyline. We're not going to know anything real about the QB situation until gameday.
