  2. Yesterday, the team came out and one by one named someone they were standing for. At the end Kobe Webster and Teddy Allen read from notes they had brought with them. Webster: "We stand together as one to find ways to educate people to hopefully stop this terrible trend of lives being lost for no reason. This is not a political fight. This is about being a decent human being. Hate is such a strong word that is unfortunately used and acted on too much in today's world. We know we are not going to change everything that is going on by standing here today.

  3. I'm an academic as the brunt of my living. There are three things from my research I would propose to empower our Black American families: 1. Universal Pre-K. There should be no political argument here. It is not a child's fault what situation he is born into. 80% of the brain is developed by roughly age 6. We need compulsory education starting at age 2. This isn't my opinion. The literature is conclusive. The age 5 compulsory start for children is completely arbitrary. 2.

  6. Sounds like reasonable, well-thought out decision making to me. And honest too; keeping Nebraska on the list would've been the easy (but dishonest) thing to do. Maybe some of the adults on this board could take a maturity lesson from this 18 year old kid.

  15. For anyone's future reference this is equivalent to throwing on your hazard lights in a tow away zone. To circle back, right, wrong or indifferent what the guys said was what they said. To me there is more meaning in having to collect, process, and state your own thoughts and opinions than reciting them from someone else. That's sort of the point of an university education.

  17. If this was directed at what I wrote (not saying it was), I agree that part of the issue is cultural, but that culture was developed in an artificial, state-sponsored environment designed to fail. There are policies that could greatly help reverse these trends (child brain development, home ownership, generational wealth, prison reform) that could position young people in these environments to get out, create nuclear families, and actually have bootstraps with which they can pull themselves up. People of color in the suburbs do not have these inner city cultural problems or crime ra

  18. I agree with everything here, and I would add, we should also find a way to massively increase spending on inner-city schools, primary and secondary. As to your third point, it seems to me like we're getting to the tipping point of getting marijuana legalized nationwide. We're approaching 50% of states that have either fully legalized it (11 states + DC) or allow medicinal use + decriminalization (12 states).

    OT: Live Sports Are Back!

    What happened to the "no political posts" rule? We get plenty of this stuff on all of the other media. By the way, does anyone ever wait on actual evidence before jumping to conclusions any more? Otherwise why bother with a legal system at all, just take a poll on twitter and mete out whatever justice the majority mandates? It would bypass lawyers altogether.

  22. Classic Nebrasketball to have a guy get murdered for not being able to recruit the state of Nebraska (including me) and then to not be here at the point he potentially finally figured it out. I'm all in on the Hoiberg era but i'm going to check and see how much blood is in my urine after listening to that podcast. In a world where some kids base their college decision on tweets I can very much respect a kid who has put thought into their list of schools beyond how it's going to look in a graphic.

  23. I think the 17 straight losses make it hard to sell the program as "on the rise." The roster turnover also isn't a hopeful sign. If Hunter's a one-and-doner, then why would he go to a school that's rebuilding? I look at his recent indications of interest as an attempt to throw a bone our way when he really had no intention of going here. The staff can now focus on guys who are really interested.

  24. Count me in the corner of being VERY VERY disappointed with this kid. You put out a Top 12 and don't even put down the main in state university? Two days after going out wearing a Nebraska shirt? Two days after talking to Robin Washut and saying Nebraska is "very much in the hunt"? You put ALABAMA in the Top 12 over Nebraska? There's a 0% chance he goes to Alabama. You put OREGON with Dana Altman and CREIGHTON on the list but not Nebraska. It's a real slap in the face but here's what I'm 99% sure happened.

  26. Every year these are rolled out, I’m reminded how much better this conference is top to bottom than any other conference. No way we finish below NW this year. beyond that, I think maybe 6-13 is a toss up and will have some serious attrition. If Trey gets cleared, Fred is going to have a tremendous opportunity to coach circles around a few people who will roll out comparable talent. He did it game in and game out last year but just didn’t have the dogs. I cannot wait to see his system with this squad, and I’m excited for our team defensively—I think Doc w

  28. Excellent book indeed. For many of us who lived through the Medgar Evers, Malcolm X, Martin Luther King, Robert Kennedy, Black Panther era we were likely hoping and praying that this country progressed. I guess we have a bit with womens rights. And despite the current issues we have made some progress with the rights of people of color (I also choose to include Native Americans). BUT, we have a ways to go. Those individuals though, that are trying to make this about politics...please stop. This is not about a vote or a politician. This is a systematic social pr

  37. One thing we have going for us that we've NEVER had going for us before is a coach with a big name who played in the pros, coached in the pros, and got it done at the college level. Never had that before. I'd say we've got a puncher's chance.

  38. So the parents of white kids who don't even suit up for their own HS team are underwriting the cost of the "Super Star X" kids from Omaha to travel the summer national circuit? And this is unfair to average-skilled black kids whose parents can't afford to be exploited like that? I think I'm following this. Back in the old days, there was like ONE traveling summer team from Nebraska, and they were sponsored by some local business, and it was always a big deal who made it. I remember reading about how Gerry Gdowski figured out he wasn't cut out for basketball in college becaus

    I had a dream last night. Hoiberg was being interviewed after a game, and in the background, Isaac Traudt and other Huskers were cutting down nets. The front of their jerseys read "Men's Basketball." What does it all mean, Dr. Freud, other than I need to re-evaluate my subconscious mind, of course?

    I see more of a Nicea type of player although Dillard lacks Nicea's length...i think she will bring a little more athleticism than Hallie had. Hallie turned out to be pretty good around the basket while i think Dillard will be able to cover more of the floor. think she has the potential to bring some offense with her. couple of the big reasons i see her starting as the season begins is she brings experience and health with her. not saying something or someone might change that at some point---i just see her in that top group starting the season out. wonder when we find out if Dillard and
