    OT: 90 Days

    I have 90 calender days left at work, for the last 43 yrs I have walked through the doors of a state office (Roads}. And that will end on Oct 2nd, it is a bitter sweet time for me. I have been telling stories of some of the stuff I have seen and done in those 43 yrs. It is time for the young bucks to take over. I just wish that they would listen to me when they ask for advice.But it is up to them to make thier minds up. I can only tell them what I would do. I have had many close calls (Death/ injuried) I got luckly about a month ago, when a backhoe swung around nearly hitting me. I hit deck, got up and the backhoe operator was white as a ghost. I got lazy and didn't let him know that I was behind him. So it was my fault. I have also had 4 ribs broken and a wrist. I got pinched in a semi trailer and broke the ribs., and when I broke my wrist I was trying break my fall and trying not to get stuck by some rebar. Okay enough of this. I think it will be a sad last day, but I wont have to worry about jobs anymore and can sleep at night.

    I took an off-the-cuff post that I spent time questioning why on earth someone would feel comfortable making and I illustrated my uncomfortableness with it by making, for me, an uncomfortable statement. There has been a lot of good dialogue over the last day offering differing and interesting viewpoints. When I read Cip's initial comment, I immediately took it as satire and a jab at how the BLM movement has devolved and been hijacked by a group of people with more sinister motives. The problem today is that in a world of hyper political correctness and living with the rage of the "cancel culture", I guess you have to tread so carefully as to not say anything that could be taken out of context by anyone. A very slippery slope.

    I for one wouldnt want to honor any of my ancestors who fought to keep slavery. There is nothing noble, honorable, or heroic about that. Feel free to sympathize with deceased confederate soldiers and their families. However, I will continue to direct my energy towards the people who have to walk around their own communities and see monuments and statues of people who viewed/treated black people as livestock. And for students who have to enter schools memoralizing individuals who didnt even think POC were worthy or capable of receiving an education.

    I've pondered your response here -- I have to assume this is a response to me -- and I guess I just have to venture a rejoinder. You can correct me if I'm wrong, but I suspect that you never served in the military and maybe never had a close relative who did. So you probably don't have the same frame of reference that I have. I think people often make the mistake of thinking that *your* reason for why you think a war was fought applies to everyone who participated in that war. I'd like to suggest to you that it's far more nuanced than that, and the reasons vary from soldier to soldier, and that the guys with actual boots on the ground who are being shot at might have had an entirely different reason for being there than the reasons the policy makers had for sending them there. I think your response presents a false dichotomy -- that you can only sympathize with one of the parties or the other -- and it carries an implication that I'm indifferent, or even hostile, to the emotions of the descendants of those slaves who were freed as a consequence of the Civil War. That's not a fair assumption, nor is it accurate. And you also ducked my question about whether there's room in our society to recognize and in some way remember if not honor those who gave their lives in that war on both sides of the fight. See, I was a soldier once. And I'm the son of a soldier. And I'm the direct descendent of men who served during the American Revolution, the War of 1812, the Civil War, WWII, Korea and Viet Nam. So, I suppose I have a natural tendency to identify with and take ranks with those who actually answered the call of duty (as opposed to those who just played the video game.) I won't pretend that I've ever had bullets fired at me in anger but I have *enormous* respect for those who have, and I have some sense of what it's like for family members to see their dad bringing his web gear home and leaving it by the front door night after night in case he gets "that call." And I'm not going to apologize for having not only some sense of but also sympathy for what the surviving family members must have felt like when they received word that Johnny wouldn't come marching home again. And, if I'm honest, I guess I don't really care what some little pissant, who sat comfortably in his ivory tower judging those of us who answered the call, thinks about it.

    Our country, our state, our communities and families have all gone through one heck of a challenge these last four months. Many have lost jobs, businesses and, sadly, family members. If not directly affecting ourselves, we definitely know people it has. Those are the people I'd like to focus on with this thread. For all the caring people on this board, and I truly know it's all of you, please nominate someone you know that has gone through a living hell in 2020 that could use a hand up. Give a brief explanation of the situation but please don't give names. What we'll do is pick one person from all the submissions and give them $500 of Nebraska Star Beef. You can upvote on the entries, it will have a part in deciding the winner. In case we have a lot of entries, I can see a lot of second place winners. If the entry you submitted wins, I'll PM you for details where we can get the winner their winnings.

    "Huskers Together"...

    Whitney Brown: https://spark.adobe.com/page/KYotDlg3KlY05/ “Team chemistry is going to play a huge role in our success this year, and I am not one bit worried about it because from the minute all of us girls stepped in the weight room together, joined Zoom calls, or texted in our group messages, you could sense the team chemistry,” Brown said. “From my perspective, we’ve already got great teamwork, encouragement and a strong bond. We scrimmaged each other a couple times, had movie nights and team bonding activities and have been working out together the past three or four weeks. Week by week, we are getting closer together and stronger on the court."

    I can respect that there are well-meaning people of good will who would disagree with me on this. However, there's something that troubles me about removing things like statues. Maybe I was particularly struck by reading Orwell's "1984." Maybe it's the firmly ingrained view from my classically-liberal youth that the best antidote for speech that we don't like is not less speech but more speech. In part, it's probably the notion that removing things sets a precedent for the next group that comes along with an articulable grievance. Notably, concerns that the removal movement would spread have been realized. It's happened. It's no longer just about statues of Confederate generals from the Civil War. Then there's this whole cancel culture phenomenon and how the apparent standards aren't applied equally across the board. If you think a better statue could be built, then by all means build another statue. But I'm uneasy about the idea of tearing one down that's already there. And, for what it's worth, I have no problem with the government of the State of Mississippi voting this past week to change the state flag to remove the symbol of the Confederate flag from the design. I think that's appropriate and a good thing to do.

    Two of my great, great grandfathers fought for the U.S. (the North, as it were) in the Civil War. I don't know if they did anything heroic. I'm sure men they fought next to -- men who gave their "last full measure of devotion" -- were both heroic and honorable. I've never had occasion to mourn the loss of a loved one killed in battle. I've known some who have, though, in places like Viet Nam, Afghanistan and Iraq, and it's a natural human emotion to hope that your loved one did not give his life in vain and that the cause for which he served was just. I'm glad my ancestors fought to end slavery. But I can put myself in the shoes of someone whose ancestors fought for the South. And I feel I can safely assume there were Confederate soldiers who served honorably and acted courageously and died heroically on the field of battle. I can also assume their surviving loved ones and descendants would want to honor the service and sacrifice of the husbands, fathers and grandfathers they lost in battle every bit as much as those of us whose ancestors fought for the north. And it should be noted that historical estimates of Civil War dead have been adjusted sharply upwards in the last ten years as a result of research by a demographic historian from Binghamton University named David Hacker. It used to be supposed that the losses for the south -- for which there were not as complete a list of unit rosters and casualties -- was proportional to the much-better-documented loss of life among union soldiers. Hacker's research found that this assumption was not true and that actual loss of life among Confederate soldiers was substantially higher than among Union soldiers. I remember reading the scholarly article when it came out in 2011. And one of the points this historian made was that the demographic ripple effects of the loss of life among Confederate soldiers in the Civil War was still being felt in the South to this day. I don't know the actual numbers. I've seen a statistic that suggested roughly 25% of Confederate soldiers owned or were from families which owned slaves. And I've seen the statistic that 30% of all Southern white males between the ages of 18 and 40 died in the Civil War (compared with just 10% of northern men ages 20-45.) Which tells me there were a lot of Southern young men who gave their lives for a cause in which they were not stakeholders or particular beneficiaries. Try to imagine the impact of 30% of all men ages 18-40 in your town being killed in a war tomorrow. And it's not hard to imagine that their surviving loved ones would want to somehow honor their service whether or not they approve of the cause for which they died. The widow whose husband was killed in Viet Nam might think the Viet Nam war was unjust, but does that mean her late husband's heroism on the battlefield cannot, in some way, be at least remembered? Is there some way that we can make room in our society, in our parks and public squares, to remember those who fought in the Civil War on both sides and not just those who fought for the North? I think Abraham Lincoln would have thought so. In his second inaugural address, he spoke of the need to reintegrate the South back into the Union: "With malice toward none, with charity for all, with firmness in the right as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in, to bind up the nation's wounds, to care for him who shall have borne the battle and for his widow and his orphan, to do all which may achieve and cherish a just and lasting peace among ourselves and with all nations." Lincoln didn't differentiate between the widows from the north and the widows from the south for the southern widow most assuredly lost her husband, too. And Lincoln made another important point -- relevant to the events we're seeing these days -- in his 2nd inaugural: Both [the north and south] read the same Bible and pray to the same God, and each invokes His aid against the other. It may seem strange that any men should dare to ask a just God's assistance in wringing their bread from the sweat of other men's faces, but let us judge not, that we be not judged. The prayers of both could not be answered. That of neither has been answered fully. The Almighty has His own purposes. "Woe unto the world because of offenses; for it must needs be that offenses come, but woe to that man by whom the offense cometh." If we shall suppose that American slavery is one of those offenses which, in the providence of God, must needs come, but which, having continued through His appointed time, He now wills to remove, and that He gives to both North and South this terrible war as the woe due to those by whom the offense came, shall we discern therein any departure from those divine attributes which the believers in a living God always ascribe to Him? Fondly do we hope, fervently do we pray, that this mighty scourge of war may speedily pass away. Yet, if God wills that it continue until all the wealth piled by the bondsman's two hundred and fifty years of unrequited toil shall be sunk, and until every drop of blood drawn with the lash shall be paid by another drawn with the sword, as was said three thousand years ago, so still it must be said "the judgments of the Lord are true and righteous altogether." Lincoln suggests here that God may have imposed the Civil War on our nation as penance for the sin of slavery and that every drop of blood drawn by the sword in the Civil War was payment for every drop of blood drawn by the lash and the bondsman's two hundred and fifty years of unrequited toil. Three-quarters of a million men died in that war, which produced the end of slavery in this country and the preservation of the union. That's worth pondering.

    2020 C Eduardo Andre - Signed

    He comes in just after 12:30 in the video. He can absolutely run the floor and finish. He's also very long. I suspect his wingspan is over 7'. Had a nice outlet. Otherwise sort of a mess. Rebounding seems weak. Shotblocking without fouling didn't seem there yet. Setting picks an not understanding how to do it without fouling. He left after playing part of the first period with either 2 or 3 fouls. Back in at 27:40 Had a nice left-handed drive from the 3pt line though that is his dominant hand. Got a guy to travel with his length. More of the same in terms of weak rebounding and not necessarily understanding what he needs to do. At the 35:00 mark the coach for the opposing team gets T-ed up twice and then the assistant gets T-ed up twice and they just call the ball game in quarter 2. Some AAU level mickey mouse refereeing there lol. I'll see if I can flip up some other videos. I very much understand why we recruited this guy: he has the physical ability to be the rim protecting, fast break running complimentary center that we want. No idea when or if he develops into that. This would be the one guy in the longest time would consider redshirting if we think he's going to improve.

    There are a number of things that could happen to impact eligibility. Maybe he didn't go to classes the last semester. Maybe he didn't take enough credits each semester to show academic progress. Maybe he was borderline academic probation. Maybe his credits didn't transfer over. The 2nd part of your puzzle I have no idea how to answer so I give up. My solution is...it's water under the bridge. The 13th spot has been refilled and I am moving on.

    Wow. Things change quickly these days. Welcome Elijah! Things I like about this sudden twist. 1) We signed another ball handler who can play multiple spots. 2) He is a freshmen instead of a Junior. We had 6 Juniors and 1 freshmen? Now it's 2 freshmen and 5 Juniors so that is a slightly better distribution.

    "Huskers Together"...

    incoming freshman A. Stewart: https://spark.adobe.com/page/KYotDlg3KlY05/?fbclid=IwAR0QkzFCNGfcBsHfIh2h0vTnBk4atirBuywr-1zRXAqNeF0O8sE1URGfCis “We will all be learning and adjusting a lot,” Stewart said. “But I think that all seven of our different experiences along with the returning players will mesh well and give us a unique advantage above other teams.” "Her first two seasons in Minnesota helped prepare her for a huge end to her senior season in 2019-20. Stewart averaged 20.0 points, 8.1 rebounds and 1.8 assists while hitting 65.5 percent of her two-point field goal attempts and 41.5 percent (39-94) of her threes. She was also nearly a 90 percent free throw shooter (51-57). She led Wayzata to a 24-5 record with three losses to national No. 1 Hopkins and Gatorade National Player of the Year Paige Bueckers."

    Here are the 2020 recruits

    Husker.com article below. Huskers Welcome Seven Newcomers for 2020-21Huskers.com The Nebraska women's basketball team will have a strikingly different roster in 2020-21, as Coach Amy Williams welcomes seven newcomers to a 13-player roster, including four West Coast transfers, a talented freshman post from Minnesota, a top player in the Australian National Team program and one of the best guards in the state of Nebraska.Although much of the United States and the world shut down in mid-March because of the coronavirus outbreak, the Husker coaching staff went to work adding a variety of experience with four transfers joining the program since April 15. Those transfers will be added to an incoming group of three freshmen who made their commitments to Nebraska official in November of 2019.The seven newcomers will join forces with six returning players (Kate Cain, Taylor Kissinger, Sam Haiby, Isabelle Bourne, Trinity Brady, Makenzie Helms) to represent the Huskers during the 2020-21 season.Annika Stewart, a 6-3 forward out of Wayzata High School in Plymouth, Minnesota was the first commitment (July 31, 2019) in Nebraska's signing class. The versatile forward with a solid post game and the ability to shoot the three enjoyed a strong senior season at Wayzata, averaging 25 points over her final 12 games of the season to earn first-team Class 4A All-State accolades.As a senior, Stewart averaged 20.0 points, 8.1 rebounds and 1.8 assists while hitting 65.6 percent of her two-point field goal attempts, 41.5 percent (39-94) of her threes and 89.5 percent (51-57) of her free throws. She led Wayzata to a 24-5 record with three of its losses coming to national No. 1 Hopkins. The No. 35 post in the nation according to ESPN, Stewart scored 27 points in her final game against Hopkins and Gatorade National High School Player of the Year Paige Bueckers in the 6-4A sectional championship game.Stewart arrived in Lincoln to begin preparations for voluntary workouts on June 1, and is eager to continue her development as Nebraska prepares for 2020-21."I really like the coaching staff and the family atmosphere," Stewart said. "I believe it is a special place with great support to thrive as a student-athlete. I'm excited to be a Husker!"Stewart was joined on campus June 1 by another freshman who is extra-excited about wearing a Husker uniform. Grand Island's Whitney Brown was a two-time All-Nebraska and Super-State selection, who earned a spot on the 2019 Class B All-State Tournament Team. As a junior, the 5-8 guard led Grand Island Northwest to the state title. As a senior, Brown averaged 17.5 points, 4.0 rebounds, 3.3 assists and 2.0 steals to lead the Vikings back to the state semifinals in 2020.A three-sport competitor for much of her high school career at Grand Island Northwest, Brown was also President of the Student Council and National Honor Society. She is a preferred walk-on at Nebraska for 2020-21."It has always been my dream since I was a little kid to be a Husker, so when I was given the opportunity it was my dream come true," Brown said. "It will be an honor to represent my hometown with "Huskers" written across my chest."Nebraska's third incoming freshman, Ruby Porter brings a load of international experience with the Australian National Team programs. Porter was a member of the Australian U17 National Team in 2018 and a member of the Australian U18 3x3 National Team in 2018 and 2019. As a member of the Sturt Sabres in Australia's Premier League, the 5-10 guard from Adelaide averaged 15.9 points per game at the U20 national championships in February of 2019. In April of 2018, Porter averaged 16.2 points, 5.6 rebounds and 3.6 steals in helping South Australia to a silver medal at the U18 National Championships."The people at Nebraska made it feel like one big family," Porter said, "and a place where I can develop best to achieve my goals in basketball and in life."Porter will be the final Husker to report to Lincoln prior to the 2020-21 season. She is expected to be on campus by early August. The other 12 Huskers are all expected to be back on campus by the middle of this week, although not all will be cleared yet to participate in voluntary workouts."We are excited about the potential these freshmen bring," Williams said. "We are looking forward to helping them build a great list of accomplishments in the future here at Nebraska."The trio of Husker freshmen will be joined by a quartet of West Coast transfers as newcomers for the upcoming year.The most experienced transfer added by the Big Red was MiCole Cayton, who will be entering her fifth season of college basketball. Cayton, a 5-9 guard from Stockton, Calif., recently earned her bachelor's degree from California and is expected to have at least two seasons of eligibility remaining. Cayton arrived on Nebraska's campus on June 5 to begin preparations for the coming season with voluntary workouts.Cayton's long-awaited arrival in Lincoln came after originally signing a National Letter of Intent with the Huskers as a senior at St. Mary's High School in November of 2015. However, a coaching change at Nebraska following the 2015-16 season caused Cayton to stay closer to her family home in California. She was an honorable-mention All-Pac-12 Freshman selection in 2016-17 after finishing the season as a starter to help the Bears to the second round of the 2017 NCAA Tournament.After averaging 5.6 points, 2.4 rebounds, 2.1 assists and 1.3 steals as a freshman, Cayton began her sophomore season as a starter with 13 points in the opener, before suffering a torn ACL. She missed the rest of the season and continued to battle injuries in 2018-19 and 2019-20. With her degree in hand she will be immediately eligible to compete as a graduate transfer for the Huskers in 2020-21."MiCole has an infectious competitive spirit and drive to be her very best," Williams said. "Her high energy and passion along with her experience as a collegiate athlete make her a great fit for our program."Another talented guard originally from California, Nailah (pronounced NY-EE-luh) Dillard chose to come to Nebraska after spending her freshman season at Texas Tech. A talented long-range shooter, the 5-9 guard from Sacramento appeared in 23 games with two starts last season in Lubbock. She averaged 3.6 points and 1.7 rebounds, including 10 points on a trio of three-pointers against Oklahoma. She added nine points and a pair of threes in the next game against Big 12 champion Baylor.Williams said Dillard can help the Huskers in a variety of areas, but will need to be granted an NCAA waiver before she can compete at Nebraska in 2020-21."We are very excited to add Nailah to the Husker family. She brings another confident presence from behind the arc, and she is also a player that is hungry to expand her game. She takes pride in playing on both ends of the court."Dillard, who averaged 22 points per game as a senior at Inderkum High School in Sacramento, said Nebraska represented everything she was looking for in a college program."I chose Nebraska because I wanted to play for coaches who would invest in me and value me as a person on and off the court," Dillard said. "I wanted to play for a program that values success, and I am looking forward to playing with teammates and for coaches who love to win as much as I do."Dillard and Eastern Washington transfer Bella Cravens both arrived in Lincoln on June 2 to begin preparations for voluntary workouts as part of Nebraska's Summer Bridge program. Cravens, a 6-3 forward from Laie, Hawaii, closed a strong sophomore season as an honorable-mention All-Big Sky Conference selection in 2019-20. She finished with season averages of 10.4 points and a Big Sky-best 8.5 rebounds while adding 1.7 blocks.Cravens took her game to a much higher level in February of 2020, averaging 20.8 points, 12.0 rebounds, 2.8 assists, 2.3 blocks and 1.8 steals while hitting 69.6 percent (32-46) of her field goal attempts over a four-game stretch (Feb. 15-27). Cravens will also need an NCAA waiver in order to compete for the Big Red in 2020-21."Bella is an excellent athlete who is motivated to become the best player she can," Williams said. "We have a strong need for the things she brings to the table, and we believe her best basketball is still in front of her. We can't wait to pour into her as a Husker."Nebraska's fourth West Coast transfer, Ashley Scoggin was NU's most recent roster addition (May 2) and the first Husker newcomer to arrive on campus (May 19) ahead of voluntary workouts."I chose Nebraska because of the coaching staff," Scoggin said. "They are great people and want to win."A transfer from Salt Lake City Community College, Scoggin had a big redshirt freshman year for the Bruins, after battling injuries for four seasons. Scoggin averaged 10.0 points, 5.2 rebounds, 2.1 assists and 1.3 steals in 2019-20 to earn NJCAA All-Region 18 honors. She was also a member of the NJCAA Region 18 All-Tournament Team while helping the Bruins (20-7) to the Region 18 title.A 5-7 guard from Dallas, Ore., Scoggin hit better than 40 percent of her three-point attempts and 95 percent of her free throws in her one season on the court in Salt Lake City. She will be immediately eligible for the Huskers and is expected to have three years of eligibility remaining."We are excited to add Ashley to our Husker family," Williams said. "She is a play-making guard with experience and maturity and will provide us with another consistent presence from behind the arc."
