  1. Can't wait for Ty Robinson or Wynn Jr. wearing number 4 or 7.
  2. Total market collapse. That's who would handle it.
  3. Pretty sure Elon is idiotic for not knowing, what I can only assume, one of the most well compensated employee does/is.
  4. Objective complete! Now we need even more of you comrades to bind together to take back the motherland!
  5. All you weirdos lurking around here can help us out. We can eliminate the Buffaloes from this wretched map.
  6. I love how half of Lavonte David’s big plays are from him just getting pissed off the play before or during a play and knowing how to capitalize.
  7. Playoffs!?!?!?! Playoffs!!!!
  8. I know everyone has an agenda to push, but I had to look it up. Nobody bothered to visit the closest high school to campus since Macke was hired in 2011. They have had some pretty good teams there m, especially recently. Not even for a walk on or scouting info on other Lincoln area school players?
  9. He turned down staying as a head coach at a lower level to be a coordinator at a mid major in sin city. We all know what brought him round.
  10. Holy moly, I hadn't seen this. I feel like this should be bigger news, but haven't heard a peep. Dude has been getting Purdue rolling and was just in the B1G title game. Purdue probably headed back into the basement of the West/B1G. Good luck at Louisville. Hope you find the next Teddy B, Lamar Jackson, or Michael Bush and **checks notes** Brian Brohm... Maybe they will be fine.
  11. Also, had Oregon been able to hold on against Washington, they would have finally united the entire country the following week by beating Utah. If that were the case, Oregon State would now own the whole country and not just the two NDSU territories.
  12. Fun fact: If you do the 2016 to current map, they don't actually tract FCS level and below. So the NDSU taking Iowa's territory isn't changed until they lost to Arizona this year (2022). In that time NDSU lost to FCS opponents and it should actually go like this: {Date}: Owner (losses to) -> Opponent (new owner) ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Oct 15, 2016: North Dakota St -> South Dakota State Oct 29, 2016: South Dakota St -> Illinois State Nov 26, 2016: Illinois St -> Central Arkansas Dec 3, 2016: Central Arkansas -> Eastern Washington Dec 17, 2016: Eastern Washington -> Youngstown State (Bo Pelini's Team) Jan 7, 2017: Youngstown State -> James Madison (FCS Champions) Jan 6, 2018: James Madison -> North Dakota St (FCS Champions) Feb 27, 2021: North Dakota St (Undefeated in 2018 and 2019) -> Southern Illinois Mar 20, 2021: Southern Illinois -> South Dakota State May 16, 2021: South Dakota State -> Sam Houston State (FCS Champions) Dec 11, 2021: Sam Houston State -> Montana State Jan 8, 2022: Montana State -> North Dakota State Sep 17, 2022: North Dakota St -> Arizona (Who the map says gets it!) All that to say the map shows the correct owner now, but is actually wrong in the intermediary.
  13. Matt Canada is taking a bludgeoning this year at OC and the offensive staff may be on their way out. Not sure what connections he has to hang around in the NFL or if a trip back to college is in the works until another/better offer comes.
  14. So they took out a loan to buy Sanders because they don't have the money. Don't they know they still have to buy the players too? Hope their gamble pays off.
  15. Honestly, haven’t paid attention to Cincy since week 1. I thought Fickell was doing just fine at Cincy and only now did some digging. I am not saying he isn’t a good coach, but looking at this year more closely , it does make me more skeptical of him. The lasting memories I have of him is his trip to Lincoln where after Braxton got hurt, he didn’t have any answer to the question, how do I preserve this win with superior talent outside of QB. That and Joe Bausermann’s passing chart. That pic still gets used to this season.
  16. But what is Fickell’s resume. Sustained success? Maybe it’s just a good 1+ class with mostly kids from Ohio. Sauce, Bryant, Ridder, Pierce, Cook, and Sanders all come in and lift the team to heights. First year after a departure of the first class(es) and he goes 9-3. FPI UCF L (28) Tulane L (30) Arkansas L (39) SMU W (61) ECU W (64) Navy W (78) Indiana W (82) Tulsa W (86) USF W (103) Temple W (110) Miami (OH) W (111) Kennesaw State W (FCS) Sargain-177 Just for reference Mickey went 3-5 against: Minnesota L (19) Illinois L (20) Oklahoma L (24) Wisconsin L (27) Purdue L (35) Iowa W (36) Indiana W (82) Rutgers W (101) Which Frost did with the same team: Georgia Southern L (91) Northwestern L (99) North Dakota W (FCS) Sargain-128 Did he just grab some really good talent nobody saw early at Cincy or did he develop players like no other? This last year is kind of a red flag that maybe Fickell isn’t the sure fire coach he is being made out to be.
  17. You also hear Alberts say that not hiring Mickey was due to "mitigating risk", which could be applied to Fickell as well. He may be the better premier coach, but he doesn't have the track record to get a team off the ground. Alberts needs this to be the most likely hire to not continually go 3-9 to 5-7. Fickell may be able to get a preseason West leader in Wisconsin to 10-2 or 12-0, but he might not get a 4-8 Nebraska out of the losing territory. Fair or not, Fickell received a previously 12-1 tOSU as an interim, in a tough spot, and went 6-7.
  18. Did he pull in Spencer Rattler or was that Beamer? If it was Satterfield who lured him away when Riley left, he is probably worth it on that alone. Rattler took a lot of flack at OU and started slow at SC, but the end of the year showed that he was being rebuilt into who everyone thought he was.
  19. Doesn't help that we start with a conference game. We don't get a chance to work out any bugs and plug gaps before the live shots are fired. Minnesota will also have some turnover (Ibrahim who has been their workhorse, Morgan gone at QB, but Athan has taken the reigns and appears to be decent, Spann-Ford TE and Autumn-Bell WR will finally leak out the rest of the talent that made them good in 2019), but I don't expect them to fall off a cliff. Colorado, La Tech, and N Illinois are all pretty sad this year that should help us get some grip. Michigan, Michigan St., Maryland isn't the worst cross division pull. Mel Tucker has pulled a lot of flack after losing Kenneth Walker and their team seems to be in disarray. Maryland will be better and with Taulia back, they probably are a better team than us. Michigan's roster this year was preseason being called better even after losing Hutchinson and they delivered. Even if Corum leaves we aren't beating them. Being 3-2 and likely having our weakness already exposed doesn't put much faith into going to Illinois before getting the bye week to regroup. I would expect a 3-3 or if we are lucky 4-2 group heading into the gut of our schedule to determine whether we make a bowl game year one under Rhule. Biggest questions are who sticks around for Rhule, who can be brought in from other schools, and who leaves with the coaching staff being let go now. Seeing if Thompson can give it another go will be the first big piece and finding out if Rhule can squeeze some juice out of some of the o-line pieces we thought we had recruiting wise that haven't necessarily panned out on the field. Our defense was young and if he continues his track record at other programs with a different defensive coordinator we could grab the couple of games needed to make a bowl. If we lose the house, it probably is another rough year and a wait and see for year 2.
  20. I liked him back in the day as a jag. Hope he brings some good experience in the NFL with him. He played an important role in the Broncos Super Bowl season as noted earlier.
  21. Not so fun facts: During that timeframe we are: 4-4 vs. Illinois 3-5 vs. Minnesota 3-5 vs. Purdue 3-5 vs. Northwestern 0-7 vs. Wisconsin 0-6 vs. Ohio State 0-3 vs. Michigan 0-2 vs. Oklahoma 0-2 vs. Colorado 0-1 vs. Georgia Southern 0-1 vs. Troy 0-1 vs. BYU 0-1 vs. Miami (FL) Current Losing Streaks: 9 Wisconsin 7 Ohio State 6 Texas 4 Minnesota 4 Florida State 4 Texas Tech 3 Illinois 3 Michigan 3 Oklahoma 3 USC (never beat in 5 games)
  22. Was pretty good on my assessment. Games that changed the division that I missed: Michigan State (W) @ Illinois -Surprise upset that makes the 3 loss certain. New adds to the list above since if we end at 3 losses, Wisconsin winning out gets the division these would all slot between Iowa/Purdue and Purdue/Indiana: Wisconsin @ Iowa (W) -Wisconsin has now been eliminated. Minnesota @ Wisconsin is more favorited toward Wisconsin. -Doesn't matter because Wisconsin lost to Iowa. Wisconsin (W) @ Nebraska So we went the bat s#!t crazy route... Iowa beat Northwestern, @ Purdue, Wisconsin, and @ Minnesota in a row to remain at 3 losses which eliminated Wisconsin and Minnesota. With Purdue beating Illinois at the top, it opened the door for Iowa to have the tie-breaker on Purdue. Nebraska @ Iowa -For the division for Iowa. Illinois @ Northwestern -If both Iowa and Purdue lose, a Illinois Win gets them the division. If Iowa, Purdue, and Illinois lose, Iowa holds Tiebreakers over Purdue and Wisconsin/Minnesota winner with head to head tiebreaker (2-0). A Wisconsin win would make them 2nd in the division with Purdue 3rd and a Minnesota win would make Purdue 2nd and Minnesota 3rd.
