just what the Pistons need: a third string center. Joe Dumars was replaced by a mean ol' alien a few years back you guys.

|4 days 6 hours ago||I disagree on Nebraska a bit||
I'm born and raised in Omaha and have been to several games. I'm not saying Memorial Stadium doesn't have a very good atmosphere, but the experience at the Big House is much bigger and better than at Memorial Stadium. I've been to The Big House, Camp Randall, and Memorial Staium, and Memorial Stadium is the worst (but still very good) of the three.

Thank you for reminding me that I don't spend nearly enough time on The Onion.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||It's all about the running game||
Bo Pelini is a magician with the secondary and they have talent there. If Michigan hasn't developed a running game by then and is one dimensional, Nebraska will be just fine. Wisconsin dominated them by putting ten people on the line, putting a running back in shotgun, and running right at them. If Michigan has developed a running game, I think the outcome will be similar to 2011. If not, it'll be tough.
EDIT: I do agree with you on Taylor Martinez, though. Despite his excellent year last year, I just don't buy into him as a big game quarterback.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||Great points here||
The only B1G school I can think of that tries to poach from Nebraska is Iowa. There have been several that came from my high school in Omaha (Millard North) that chose to play at Iowa. Granted, many were during the Callahan era when he completely ignored high school football in the state. While Nebraska isn't a hotbed, there are good football players in the state, and they are all dying to play for the Huskers.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||I think it's 7 wins||
I don't think this team will win only 7 games, but rivalry games are unpredictable and can go either way. NW and Nebraska will have explosive offenses that could be tough to stop. There is no guarantee that this offensive line will be better run blocking than last year, which could affect a run game that struggled last year. If Gardner, Lewan, and/or Schofield get hurt, it could get ugly. If the front four struggle to get a pass rush and Ryan isn't himself coming off an injury, the defense might just be ok. This is all worst case scenario, but that is what a floor is.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||Nebraska will also continue in FL and CA,||
just like they did under Osborne (Tommie Frazier, FL; Lawrence Phillips, CA). You'll notice a lot from those two states as well, especially in CA. A lot of parents feel comfortable sending their kids to Nebraska because they feel like they'll stay out of trouble there.

Did they enroll early?
|4 weeks 6 days ago||Really?||
I understand your point that people are more attached to their UG school, but are you saying that someone like myself who graduated from Michigan and attends UNC Law cannot root for UNC under the "Code of Fandom"? Someone can only root for one of the schools they attended? That seems silly unless you attended UM/OSU or AU/Alabama, etc.
|5 weeks 5 days ago||No talent in Nebraska?||
I think everyone is forgetting about the powerhouse Millard North High School. How many Heisman trophy winners has your high school produced? That's right. I went there.
|8 weeks 4 days ago||Yeah||
I'm in full support of a fellow Michigan Grad/Omaha native.
|10 weeks 6 days ago||I understand your sentiment,||
but I'm pretty sure they don't play 162 games in a college season.

|15 weeks 5 days ago||If Saban had a .500 record||
and coached at Mississippi State, no one would care. Not to mention, holding up Saban as the posterchild for oversigning is like making Andy Pettite the posterchild for PEDs. The only evidence that Saban has forced anything onto anyone is the NYT article that had very questionable integrity. He's easy to hate, I get it. I'm no fan of Saban, but following every roster decision he makes to try and uncover some dirt on him is silly. FTR, I realize that this thread was created at least partially for humor and the OP likely doesn't think Saban kicked the players off the team to clear roster spots. This is just something that has been annoying me for a while.
|16 weeks 2 days ago||I'm from Nebraska||
My parents are not. They encouraged me to leave the state for college. I told my mom I wanted a school in the midwest that was really good academically in just about everything (I didn't know what I wanted to study), that was fun, and that had at least one sports team that I could be proud of. Mom suggested Michigan, which to be honest, surprised me. I did some research, and fell in love on my visit. I had never seen a place like AA in my life. What sealed it was in the introductory video they showed on the visit, James Earl Jones was featured. Sandlot is my favorite movie.
|17 weeks 5 days ago||Commitments||
Commitments are unofficial, it's only a verbal promise. The NCAA has no ability to prevent kids from verbally promising anything to anyone, let alone a coach. The NCAA can control how much coaches talk to players, but not what they say.
EDIT: beat to the punch

Putting Pelini and professional in the same sentence is funny. I'm from Omaha, he is definitely on the hot seat. Most Nebraskans do not approve of his demeanor. What popularity he has comes from those who are still thankful his name isn't Bill Callahan. But after their performance in the B1G Championship Game, you can't blame anyone for confusing Pelini with Callahan.
|20 weeks 5 days ago||Forgiveness is a wonderful thing||
None of us know what he did, so I'm not going to act like I do. The criminal justice system did what they thought was right with him, and he paid his price. What I do know is that he has been an active and positive influence in his community ever since. I believe that people can rehabilitate themselves, and that he's a positive example of that. I think his legacy is one of reform, not that famous people might get away with murder.
|22 weeks 5 days ago||Source||
I may have found the source for these rumors:
"I am friends with 4 star OL UGA commit Brandon Kublano. I saw him today at party where we watched the national championship. I knew he was in the Army All-American All-Star game, so I asked him if he talked to Derrick Green at all. He did, so I proceeded to ask him if he was going to Michigan or Auburn. He told me Green was going to Auburn and I trust his word."
Color me skeptical.

I'm from Omaha, I don't know a single person that has ever watched a Nebraska basketball game voluntarily.

|24 weeks 3 days ago||What was Osborne supposed to do||
when he had his 2nd and 3rd stringers in and were running the ball every play? Tell them to fall down? Husker fans aren't pissed at Wisconsin for running up the score, they're pissed at the team for blowing.

as the DC before he got to State, which I think only helps the point you're making.

The great (or terrible) equalizer is that every fan base has that 1%, at least among the fan bases that care.

|30 weeks 1 day ago||Go Vandy!||
It's a great time to be a Commodore. They ended their bowl victory drought last year, are going to a bowl game two consecutive years for the first time in forever, dominated Tennessee, and caused them to fire their coach.
So, how long until James Franklin is poached from Vandy?

players feeling like they're above the law, it's not very difficult to get away with smoking weed. Keep small quantities in your home and use it at home and there's about a 0% chance you'll get in trouble unless cops bust in your home for other reasons.
