Did they enroll early?
|1 week 4 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.

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.

I'm in full support of a fellow Michigan Grad/Omaha native.

but I'm pretty sure they don't play 162 games in a college season.

|12 weeks 3 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.
|13 weeks 8 hours 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.
|14 weeks 2 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

You're really going out on a limb there, aren't you?

You totally stole my joke...kind of...not really...I'm only posting so that I can get a free steak.

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.
|17 weeks 3 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.

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.

When I went to Amsterdam, a homeless guy gave my friend and I directions in English.

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.
|24 weeks 4 days ago||Saban was in Cleveland||
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.

All Freshmen are naive. I sure as hell was.
|26 weeks 6 days 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.

I think they're pretty good for student announcers. When I read on the board during last game they were bad, I thought they would be much worse. Keep this in mind, Tim McCarver is paid to announce games, these kids do it for free (I assume).
|28 weeks 4 days ago||His passing ability is ok,||
His passing ability is ok, not great. But we don't have a great passing qb. The coaches have seen all three qb's in practice every day and have obviously made their decision who's better.
But seriously, with the game on the line, who do you want with the ball in his hand?
|28 weeks 4 days ago||So...||
You're telling me that it's insulting to insinuate that Denard would struggle blocking, but it's not insulting to say that the face of the program shouldn't be allowed to finish his senior year at the only position he's every played?
Devin Gardner's mechanics are far from perfect and has made some questionable decisions. Take a look at the spring game. Denard looked much better because he is. I like Devin a lot and I'm excited for the future with him at QB, but this is the present, not the future.
You're right, we can't assume what the coaches are thinking. There is one exception, however: they will do what is best for the program.
Why not now? Saying Devin should start to build for the future isn't being fair to this team. They're competing for a B1G championship and you want to switch from an incredibly successful 3-year starter to a player who has one career start. Denard has had some tough games, sure, but he's had some great ones in big moments as well. What happened against MSU? After a rough game, with the game on the line, he extended the play when protection broke down and made a throw to win the game. With the game on the line, can you honestly say you want Gardner under center instead of Denard? Really?!!?!
|28 weeks 5 days ago||I'll be nice||
and give you logical reasons why your idea is not so good.
1. Denard is by far the best playmaker on the team. Given the shortcomings of the offensive line, he has the ability to cover up a lot of issues, and thus needs the ball in his hands every play.
2. He's still a better passer than Gardner at this point. Look at Denard's passing numbers against crappy opponents, they're pretty darn good.
3. Every defensive coordinater is wildly in favor of your plan because they'll be able to sleep at night.
4. As stated above, you're basically neutralizing Denard's ability given we don't know he can catch, and he probably won't be an effective blocker. Saying Denard can block if Vincent Smith can is ridiculous because it takes lots of reps to learn. Vinnie is a blitz pick-up magician.
5. Gardner has never played QB in a big game. Denard has played in a ton with lots of successes and failures. He can and does use that experience to his advantage.
6. The reason we haven't seen your idea put into practice is because the coaches know it's a bad idea.
However, I agree with you on one thing. People that judge your comments based on the school you attended are likely dbags. People that judge your comments on their content, on the other hand, probably aren't.

The quote from the stepmom was that he will take visits. That's not saying she wants him to do one thing or another, just a simple statement of fact. She may or may not have a lot of influence on Gareon, but that quote doesn't demonstrate it.
|30 weeks 2 days ago||If you're coming from the zoo,||
1:45 would be a conservative estimate, 2:20 if things go your way. Luckily, the stadium is right off the highway and one of the first exits in Lincoln. If you're with kids, the rain forest will likely be the biggest hit. I know they've added a lot of new exhibits to the zoo recently, but the rain forest was always my favorite when I was a kid. Plus, it's indoors!
Also, a good restaurant in either West Omaha or downtown is Upstream. They have good food and better beer.
