  1. Yes, perhaps it was unfair of me to use the term "olds." I may have just been going for a laugh and should be careful as I am now over 40 myself. What I should have said was the herd of geriatrics, with a sprinkling of younger folks able to afford seats in the 100-level but still with a mean age greater than 55, pushing towards the parking garages within feet of the court has been an embarrassment since PBA opened. For this, i apologize.
  2. Why did it take a change of AD to make this happen? The herd of olds pushing towards the parking garages within feet of the court has been an embarrassment since PBA opened. Good on the new administration.
  3. There will be a fall semester but it will be online, and depending on what's happening in Nov-Dec the spring semester may be online, as well. Colleges can't bring that many people together in dorms and classrooms. They are going to be conflicted between continuing on campus, for the sake of enrollments and financial pressures from tightening state budgets, and not contributing to another wave of infections. They don't want to open back up only to have to give students refunds for their housing again. It's hard to see how they play games until there is increased testing, tracing of cases, and/or a vaccine.
  4. It's not like there aren't folks trained in design on campus who wouldn't help them come up with something better, but they probably got "Drunk Randy Travis" by shopping it out on a six-figure contract. By the way, "Drunk Randy Travis" could probably just be shortened to "Randy Travis."
  5. Ugh. That Herbie was created in a focus group gone off the rails similar to this example...
  6. If they are going to start using it again, why not take the time to fix the one sleeve thing? Does this fall under the job description of the new assistant AD for basketball and donor glad-handing?
  7. Collects a large check for befriending the right guy years ago?
  8. This is a boring lineup, but at least it will mostly take place on weekends. See y'all at Kinkaider.
  9. To be fair, the entertainment options are rather limited in Stillwater...
  10. Bring back nightmarish Corn Cob Man!
  11. Haha! In that case, probably much worse. I would prefer the status quo. I am not advocating any specific songs, just different songs. Just airing grievances about aspects of the program that seem mediocre beyond the team itself, none of which would really garner much attention if the team were doing well. I am just struggling to express my heartache over another disappointing season - a condition we all currently find ourselves in.
  12. So because he made one change and it took a outside request to do it, not his own skills as a DJ (I guess that's what he is), he's doing his job a satisfactory level?
  13. Yes, there are a number of reasons he should go. Just to name a few examples that seem to be under his authority...Branding and marketing are mediocre at NU, especially for basketball. I am more than willing to fork over money for Husker gear but cannot find anything I would actually pay for. It is not an Adidas problem, because I used to live Lawrence and KU fans have no shortage of better options. Also, how are we the only regional university that doesn't license to Charlie Hustle out of KC? They make some good stuff. They seems to be little effort put into this aspect of the program. Also, the music guy at PBA seems to have settled on 10 songs a few years back and decided his job was done. It is getting as bad as when it seemed the Jock Jams CD got stuck in the player at Devaney for about a decade. If you are being paid to choose and play music, then you should at least occasionally choose new music. And make folks in the lower level exit toward the back until the game is over. I don't think I have seen any other arena allow the logjam of grey hairs scramble for the parking garages prior to the buzzer in front of the TV cameras like we do. It looks terrible.
  14. I appreciate the work you put in here. Many folks would be happy just to lazily guess, but you put in the extra effort. Kudos, sir!
  15. https://twitter.com/_egb23/status/1030235431156310016 NU in his top 8 - only power conference school if you don't count Siena
