  1. We are well on the way to no fall football.
  2. One open scholarship now. Anybody know if Figueroa signed anywhere yet?
  3. I don’t know if anyone ever mentioned it but he was only 17 when he played this season so it is very possible he did grow.
  4. No lie - truth - believe it - something along those lines and saying you will be able to count on Cam next season wherever he ends up would be cap.
  5. After reading that tweet I stopped following him. If you go around burning bridges you're bound to get burned yourself one day. Kid needs to grow up. No cap
  6. Show him Cam Mack highlights and tell he can be that facilitator here.
  7. I started out a Blues fan because my son started following them. He adopted Joe Cole as his favorite player after the 2006 World Cup, followed him to Chelsea and is still a fan today. Loves his Pulisic jersey. I had a co-worker who said he picked his favorite epl team after considerable research on club's history and playing style. He went with Liverpool. So I decided to do the same thing. I dropped Chelsea after I discovered their long history of Neo-Nazis in the supporters clubs and went with the Nebraska football of the epl. Once great but now .... Arsenal. Gunners are on an upward tract just like the Huskers - hopefully true for both. Actually you could make a lot of connections and comparisons to Scott Frost and Mikel Arteta coming home to take over their old clubs. And I would assume I just typed a paragraph of gibberish for 90% of the posters on this board.
  8. Fact. You get a proven positive test coming from a high school weight room and there goes any hope of a fall sports season in Nebraska.
  9. Nobody throw anything at me but I don't think you can have a team with both Petteway and Palmer on it if you are talking about a real team designed to win games and not an all-star team. I would go with Palmer myself.
  10. But if he picks Seton Hall I would think that would cross them off of Sanogo's list or vice versa.
  11. I know they’re called highlights for a reason but what is the most impressive to me is he can be 24 feet out, catch the ball at chin level and immediately release it with no dip at all. I could do that too but his splashed and mine would land just the other side of the free throw line.
  12. Does this also count as a basketball transfer?
  13. I’ll pay to come if you promise to sing Dancing Queen
  14. I stand by the fact that there was nothing political in my post. Facts are facts. if I had tried to interpret whether certain actions were good or bad, now that would be political. I guess I did share my appreciation of IKEA and ABBA.
  15. That’s how this started. My point was we could not be Sweden. We missed that boat along time ago and we have very different demographics. And then I guess I was trying to point out Sweden did not throw their people under the bus. They are not taking a libertarian approach. They have made lots of changes and their economy is suffering as well.
  16. I over simplified things and so did you. They did everything everyone else did to flatten the curve, only their actions focused on individual responsibility. People were encouraged to work from home and they already had one of the highest rates for that before the outbreak. One big reason they have the higher rates you referenced is that Sweden counts at home deaths as well instead of just hospital deaths like everyone else. And their deaths per million rate is much lower then nearby countries like France, Belgium and the Netherlands who had lock downs. When they made their recommendations to the public they also took into account people’s mental health as their system focuses on a broader sense of well being then most countries. Their last report predicts Stockholm (where the vast majority of their cases are located - low population density everywhere else in the country) will reach herd immunity in a couple of weeks. Their higher mortality rates are all located in elderly homes. They are currently studying what recommendations were not followed that lead to this and what changes need to be made. It has not been life as usual there. Actually most countries “where do we go from here” plans look like what Sweden started with. We should not have taken their approach because we have higher population density, many more urban areas, and we do not posses their health care system and robust social safety net. We won’t know for sure about anything until this is all over but right now their healthcare system has not come anywhere close to being overwhelmed and they still have IKEA.
  17. We can’t be like Sweden. It’s far too late. We are working on flattening the curve so we don’t overwhelm our medical system. Sweden’s medical system and their social safety net is so robust they feel they can handle the curve without shutting anything down. And they have IKEA, and ABBA. At the same time 80% of Americans felt they couldn’t cover a $1000 emergency before the pandemic and we are going through what will be far great than a $1000 emergency for the majority of Americans. I think going to a sporting event would be a great moral boost for many Americans but how many Americans will be able to afford going to game when they start playing again?
  18. I’m not a fan of the idea but Washut says the UNL coaching staff expects every one of the transfers to be eligible.
  19. And if the everyone gets one free transfer without having to sit goes into effect for next year like most seem to think it will, the transfer portal will crash due to the high volume of users.
  20. You made some good points but I'm not sure what connection it has to my post your quoted?
  21. People will have different opinions about all sorts of things and as long as they can give reasons for what they think what they think, I'm all about different opinions. That's what makes the world interesting. So I have no problem with your opinion. You might even be right. But every time you try to demonstrate your basketball knowledge it becomes clear you don't really get it past the ball goes in the ring thingy.
  22. Painting any large institution with several outlets with one broad brush can't be anything but inaccurate. There are clickbait sites and then there is real journalism going on at many different locations. They are not close to the same thing. The 24 hour news channels have created the need for content to fill those hours that has lead to ambulance chasing, but if you want to find good journalism you really don't have to look that far.
  23. Tom Hanks has just announced he has tested positive from Australia. There's nowhere to hide apparently.
