  1. Martinez is a good player, but his knack for untimely mistakes is undeniable. He's done it for 4 seasons now.
  2. I like Martinez the player, and even more so the person. But, he's prone to mistakes in the worst times. Fumble for a TD against Illinois, the bad pick in OT against MSU, the late fumble against Michigan, the completely unnecessary intentional grounding against Minnesota. The guy tends to shrink in clutch moments, unfortunately.
  3. I don't think Martinez is that much better than he was as a Freshman. He looked better in his first career game than he has in at least 2 games this season. In year 3, our best RB was a WR, and it year 4 our best RB is a QB, and it's not particularly close.
  4. Yeah, that could be a factor. You still have to try. The QB, RB, and Oline positions haven't improved in four years.
  5. If it were anyone else, it'd be an easy decision. Fire him. But, Frost is literally one of us, and I still believe he could be a pretty good head football coach. I'm okay with giving him one more year, but overhauling the offensive staff would be a stipulation if I was Alberts. Because he's a Nebraskan, played here, and all that, I want to make damn sure he can't do it before firing him. Give him year 5.
  6. Stoops at Kentucky is the closest one off the top of my head. It's a short list, for sure.
  7. It's getting really, really, really hard to make any defense for Frost. Especially when the best argument in his favor is probably "well, he came close to winning against those top 10 teams".... That argument might buy him some time if he wasn't also losing to Illinois and Minnesota.
  8. What an embarrassing performance from this defense. If Chins' situation can't inspire you.... Yeesh.
  9. I thought the defense would come out a little more inspired than this for their DC.
  10. It's almost like accountability and better decision making might matter in this discussion.
  11. One might have been, but my comment certainly was not. Accountability, and better decision making can, and will benefit anyone. There are so many reasons why loans are, or are not, give to people. Assuming the denial of a loan to a black person is because of race is.... Odd.
  12. I just think it's a stretch saying the lips comment was racist. I was asking in case I missed other comments and/or context. Are we to the point where any kind of mention of a black person's physical features is considered racist? They'd be a lot better off if they had my attitude towards their predicament.
  13. Did I miss the other racist comments outside of the one about the guys lips? Maybe so, but that feels like a stretch. I would agree that he said some sexists/homophobic things, for sure.
  14. If you don't see the double standard between Gruden and players like Tyreek Hill, well, I can't help you. And I have zero issue with Gruden being fired. It was a wise business decision on the Raider's part. He said a lot of stupid things.
  15. Tyreek Hill can beat the s#!t out of his pregnant wife all he wants. But, if Gruden says a man with giant lips has giant lips, well, that's just too far.
  16. No, no it's not. I believe that this country is full of people who don't like people of other races. I don't believe it's forcing people to live in poverty, have children and not take care of them, kill each other in incredible numbers, etc. All those outcomes can be corrected by self accountability, and making better decisions.
  17. I don't like homosexuality showing up in children's cartoons, gay pride displays in the Disney store, things like that. It's not a huge deal. I'm not going to protest/boycott over it. It just takes a little more educating on my part, with my own kids. I think openly endorsing homosexuality might further confuse, already confused children. I'm not qualified to say whether it is or isn't natural. But, I do wonder of the implications of introducing it to young children that aren't to the point where they're even thinking about their sexuality.
  18. -- I don't deny racism, I deny it's impact on the ability for any individual to make it in this country. -- Maybe it is. I don't know I do know that I don't want it endorsed to the point where it's being force fed to children. Compassion without endorsement.... -- I didn't invent the term, but it's pretty easy to pinpoint.
  19. I lean conservative, for sure, but I'm not "far right". I've openly spoke on this board about voting for Obama twice, despising Donald Trump, and have supported people taking the vaccine, especially the vulnerable. Definitely common traits of a far-right traits. Yep. Just because I don't toe the line of wokeness and pandering like some of you, doesn't mean I'm far-right. I have conservative friends who give me a hard time about being a liberal, so between them and you, I'm probably right where I want to be politically.
  20. Wrong. Again. I try to take in as much information, from all sides, as possible and come to my own conclusions. As with most things, the place to be is usually somewhere in the middle.
