  1. Next Years Starting 5

    Had a nice rain today that was much needed around here.
  3. Nebraska Football 2017-2018

    yeah a head scratcher.. Time for everybody to look into the mirror and see what needs to change.
  4. Rub it in? Or let it go? A poll.

    Norm we all know your a bigger man... but what does size have to do with this question?
  5. Season Tickets

    Just like when we used to buy season tickets to KU, KSU and some times ISU in football so we could go to see the Huskers. But they forget that. The KU faithful are the ones that say "We ahve a football team?" crap line, like some around here with the "We have a basketball team?" Was at the Kansas game where we stopped them on the two point try to win 21-20 (I think) and people where coming to the game in the second quarter because it was a game and everybody was sittinr in everybody elses seat and there where even a punch or two thrown. So, I take that talk with a grain of salt, because I have seen the other side.
  6. OT: Eclipse Plans

    That was the coolest thing I have ever seen with my pants on.
  7. OT: Eclipse Plans

    Oh Lord LPS has a huge, I'm telling you HUGE thing planned. And yes Norm when it is the total time you can look without the glasses. But any other time as the moon is getting or going in front of the sun you need your glasses to look at it. Now if you don't want to look or are staying inside you don't need glasses. Also check your glasses now it should be total black out, when you put them on unless you are looking at the sun and it will look a bit like the moon. Should be really cool hope the weather works out.
  8. Brady Heiman is 'N'

    That is feeling I get about this kid. At worst we have him for a year and if doesn't like it he can go. And it won't hurt either the player or program.
  9. Conference realignment for football

    I have always thought that there could be districts like in high school where you play teams close and then the top team or top two would go into a playoff for the national title. Bowl games would be for the teams who don't make it or as teams loose they could be asked to different bowl games. Just something diffent kind of like your idea. Gets old teams back to playing each other, because no conferences.

    Welcome Big Tate! Got anything to eat?
  11. Offseason Potpourri

    Jordy will need it to hit the three that is thrown to him as time runs out for a win.
  12. Patton to Minnesota

    Great player, Just don't call his sister and mother a whore and his brother's and father a terrorist!
  13. Offseason Potpourri

    CR7 is a bit of a pretty boy, and is one of the either love or hate kind of guy.. My view changed some when I heard about the family who was asked him for a pair of his game boots so that could use them in an auction to raise money for their sons cancer treatment bills. He sent them and then paid all the bills for the kid, but didn't tell anybody so that the family could use the money they raised for other things they needed. So he can be a dick, but then does some good, so you know
  14. Offseason Potpourri

    Yeah those two teams are like saying you like the Yankees and Cubs. Although I do like the Baca jersey. But my favorite jersey right now is Borussia Dortmund. The yellow with the grey stripes is sweet.

  16. NU's All Big Ten Team (so far)

    Just asking here. but do you think Terrin would have "tried as hard" if we had more and better players? Did he play his way because of he was, me first, or was it because he felt he had to carry us?
  17. Ed Chang

    This was the only answer so far on this article and it is actually pretty good: Doesn't bother me I hate losing talented in state kids for football but with basketball I want miles to find the best group he can. With football you can afford to take an in state kid who won’t play for a few years simply because of so many more spots but basketball is different. I want the best players, if that means they’re from nebraska great if not that’s great too. Posted by jack dein on Jul 6, 2017 | 3:38 PM
  18. 2017-18 Husker opponents

    He doesn't do select yet, but might some day/ After college next year I am trying to talk him into doing High School, or so. He does a good job, biggest deal is he is very calm (like his mom) and lets the guy have his say. But if goes over the top he tells them to go watch this game from the car.
  19. 2017-18 Husker opponents

    My son was umping U-14 boys game the other night, and he had some call that was not a typical call so he made it and when then coaches got done screaming about it, (because you know U-14 on a Tuesday night in Lincoln Nebraska is the most important thing in the world). So... any way he goes back behind the plate and the catcher says " That was a bold strategy, Blue" Son said they both laughed and he could tell that this kid got it, that it was just a game, and that the right call was made on a weird play.

  22. Offseason Potpourri

    No, he almost looks like a president when they leave office.
  23. Offseason Potpourri

    Heard if AWIII doesn't get drafted might try to come back here for one more year to get better at D and improve his draft stock. It was on the internet so you know it is true.
  24. Thad Matta

    crap that could mean 3 losses a year automatically!
  25. NCAA Tournament Thread
