  1. Norm, taking your summary as accurate, it seems like the guards and centers may offset each other and this scrimmage will be won or lost by the forwards, 3 point shooting and defense. It should be a good contest. To win on the road would be a bonus. Just the experience will benefit us immensely. Now, most every school will use this excuse to add this type of game in 2017; does it become the norm or is the NCAA limiting it in the future?

    "Nebraska quarterback Tanner Lee was 22 for 34 for 296 yards and two touchdowns. Redshirt freshman receiver JD Spielman set a school record with 200 yards receiving." Such gleaming statistics wryly tell you: You need to be able to run the ball, if you want to win!

    I started going to games in the 50's. I went to all but 5 home games between 1969 and 2015. Last year and this year I have missed a few games due to old guy sicknesses. Yet, until tonight, I have never left a game before the 4th quarter... and I had a half-time parking lot party this evening. SAD

    We are now the present day version of 1980's Kansas football! God, I am so embarrassed.
  5. Y'know, I'm tryna keep calm.

    It will become your wife's/girlfriend's purse, since no purses are allowed that aren't see through. So, you already have a thoughtful early XMas present!
  6. Rachel Blackburn update?

    Damn: She's a HUSKER!

    This is very sad news. May the sixth row seat 10 always be open!
  8. I see in the WH today that 2 of Patino's assistants at Louisville were put on paid leave. It seems the University has reason to worry about their assistants' actions. It also makes me wonder about an ex assistant that learned coaching on his daddy's knee. How have things been handled by the Gophers during the Patino tenure? Their recruiting has been very good; while the team has gone from the lower to the upper tier of the B1G. Chances are my suspicions never find a "smoking gun" confirmation nor a conclusive rebuttal. Just wondering.
  9. This should get you a little excited...

    It has only been 68 years since we Bused to our Big 7 conference crown. We can't be negative, when it is our time to shine. In October, hope springs ETERNAL. And this time we could be right!
  10. A quicky in the sack with Lindy

    Like we are a 3rd seed but we win a few tournament games!

    You know things are bad when your "good news" is you beat a perennial bottom feeder, Rutgers, by 10 points. The upper tier teams will beat them with 49-10 type scores. As I look ahead, it is possible we may not be favored over any team other than Illinois! Basketball can't get here soon enough.

    It seems like the appropriate nickname would be: LumberJack McTrey
  13. Here is a semi reliable Google translate: A kiwi for the FRAPORT SKYLINERS - actress Tai Webster committed The FRAPORT SKYLINERS have signed a contract with Tai Webster. The 22-year-old recently played at the University of Nebraska, where he spent three years with the former Frankfurter Shavon Shields. The New Zealander is awarded a contract for the 2017/18 season with an option for the 2018/19 season. Tai Webster: "I really do not have any real expectations for my first season as a professional. It is my first season, the first opportunity to present myself as a professional. I just want to go out, work as hard as I can, and do everything Coach asks me to win. I have spoken with Shavon [Shields] before. He told me I would love it in Frankfurt. The team colleagues are all good guys, the coaching staff is extremely good and the entire workforce is very nice and works professionally. He said I could develop excellently. Of course I want to do this and help the team. My biggest strength is probably my pull to the basket. I like to attack the basket and score points against the bigger guys. " Gordon Herbert: "Tai is a point guard, but he can also be used as a combo guard. He is very good at'Pick and Roll' and has the potential to be a very good defender. I know his college coach very well. He had already given me a lot of information and good things about Shavon Shields and now about Tai. Although Tai is still very young, he already has a lot of international experience. The situation reminds me a bit of Phil Scrubb, who also came very young to us and also had a lot of international experience with the Canadian national team. This is very rare and very valuable for an international rookie, a professional in the first year.
