  1. I was thinking of posting a thread like this after this weekend, and I think it's even more relevant after Erstad's resignation. As a NU fan, what are your expectations for the Nebraska baseball program? Here are mine. 1) Be in the top half of the Big Ten nearly every year, and be competitive for the Big Ten regular season and tournament championship. Note, I am not saying "win that championship every year". 2) Reach the NCAA Tournament on a regular basis (every year is not a requirement) and be competitive in the tournaments. By my expectations, Erstad was doing a good job. He was regularly performing my #1 expectation. He had struggled in #2 until this year. Some may think that going 1-2 is not being competitive, but the team was 1 out away from being in the regional championship. In my eyes, that's being competitive.

    Will Bolt Named New Husker Coach

    Wasn’t Bolt a Head Coach at a lower level before coming to NU as hitting coach? I know it’s not D1 experience, but he makes up for that lack of qualification with other qualities. Of course, time will tell.

    Not saying you are wrong, but who did you have in mind?

    Wan'Dale Robinson cited for possession of marijuana

    Thanks for the information. It makes sense that the pot dealers are selling better products then when I was in the market for such items.

    I know edibles are widespread in state where recreational marijuana use is legal. However, I doubt there are a lot of gummies, pot cookies, and other edibles being sold by illegal pot dealers in Nebraska. They are selling the dirtiest ditch weed they can find and getting rid of it as quickly as they can.

    The CBD oils being sold now don't contain THC, which is the component in pot which gets people "high". As long as there isn't THC then it's legal with the federal gov't.

    I am about the furthest thing from a helicopter parent there is. I’m not saying what Wandale did wasn’t against the laws in Nebraska (no matter how silly I think those laws are) and he doesn’t deserve any punishment. However, you keep referencing the NCAA when they don’t have any jurisdiction in the matter until Wandale or Mo fails an NCAA drug test.

    I like how you have accused me of being unfaithful to my wife and being a bad parent.

    But the NCAA doesn’t consider it a violation of their rules until he tests positive. Yes, he’s probably doing something which is against the NCAA rules, but again it’s not a violation of the rules until he tests positive, so the NCAA won’t issue any punishment until that happens. Now, whether Wandale or Mo has committed a violation of team rules is a different story. But, again their behavior wasn’t an issue until they were caught.

    In order to violate the NCAA rules, they would have to test positive in a drug test. Possession of the drug itself or paraphernalia is not violating NCAA rules.

    Yeah, but the players are allowed to take prescription pain medications?

    Summers in Lincoln tend to get boring.

    This is why Frost needs to rely solely on small-town kids from Nebraska. They just get hammered drunk and drive around the country roads, and not do really illegal stuff like smoke pot.

    Those kids need to do a better job of putting a damp towel in the bottom of the door frame! Rookies!

    The coaching staff needs to tell the players on Day 1, Bar X is the Coach's bar, you guys go to Bar Y.

    Wan'Dale Robinson cited for possession of marijuana

    That's basically what coaching at the big schools have come to. Guys "if you are going to be smoking or drinking (when underage), I don't care about it, just don't get caught".

    Mo wash cited for drug paraphernalia

    I don’t know if Mo is suffering from injuries or pain right now, but I’m sure he’s pretty nervous about a certain legal situation that is still outstanding in CA. I am sure he is using pot to cope with that fear and anxiety and just wanted to chill in the evening of his citation.

    JD Spielman Concussion

    ESPN showed Aussie Rules Football and other random/minor sports in their early days because they didn't own any rights to any of the major U.S. sports. They needed to fill air time, so that's why they showed ARF. ESPN didn't drop ARF due to liberals protesting the violence/blood of the sport, they dropped it because they were able to acquire TV rights to NFL, MLB, NBA, and college sports which helped fill their daily schedule.

    2019 Rules Changes

    Moving the 3 point line back is good for Hoiberg's offense. His team of shooters shouldn't be too affected by a longer shot, and it creates more space for his guards to drive and dish/kick.

    Mo wash cited for drug paraphernalia

    I think that's about right, if the trial in CA goes his way. I would have expected a 1-2 game suspension with the CA issues, and now with this issue, Frost will add another game to the suspension.

    Mo wash cited for drug paraphernalia

    I understand what you are saying, and Mo needs to be held accountable, but what he did is a simple citation. Like others have said, it’s like he was given a speeding ticket while facing charges elsewhere. If Mo is guilty of anything, it’s being a stupid kid. If it were anything besides pot (which still has a terrible stigma in the ultra conservative Nebraska) it wouldn’t be a big deal.

    Wow, you are comparing LP to Mo? That's laughable.

    Baseball Coach Search

    My bet is that NU baseball would bus to KU, KSU, ISU (before it dropped baseball), Mizzou, OU, and Okie State, with the only flights to the Texas schools. I would think NU baseball is flying from Omaha to Indiana, Penn State, Maryland, Rutgers, Michigan, Michigan State, Ohio State, Purdue and possibly even Minnesota and Northwestern (due to proximity of major airports and numerous commercial flights). That leaves only Iowa and Illinois as bus trips for the baseball team. To me that would represent a sizeable difference in travel expenses.
