  • RE: Florida Atlantic Could Be a Handful
    T-Dogg, Other than Nebraska, what stadium would you like to watch a game at?

  • RE: Braxton Miller Injury Changes Big Ten Race
    Yes, T-Dogg, Stoops and company are behind in recruiting. It's been down for about 3-4 years, I'd say. Don't know why but Texas is still our number one recruiting ground.

  • RE: Braxton Miller Injury Changes Big Ten Race
    Wow! Let's get on with the season before some more suspensions and meaningless injuries happen.

  • RE: Braxton Miller Injury Changes Big Ten Race
    I was just listening to Sirius 91 with Mark Packer and Dan Hawkins. It is their college football 'camp tour' at Michigan. The question was put up to Devin Gardner and some other player, where is the toughest place in the Big 10 to play and both players said "Iowa". Are …more »

  • RE: Braxton Miller Injury Changes Big Ten Race
    WinOSU, I wouldn't worry too much about the situation. OSU has lots of studs and it may just be a knee jerk reaction. Just because a QB is second string doesn't mean the end of the world. I see lots of handoffs and safe passes until he shows enough confidence. …more »

  • RE: Braxton Miller Injury Changes Big Ten Race
    Too bad about Miller if it's true. That kid is a phenom. You can bet his backup is no slouch, whoever that is.

  • RE: Braxton Miller Injury Changes Big Ten Race
    I wouldn't count on Curry at OU. From what I read there is no scholarship for him. He is looking at 5 other schools closer to his home. Mixon punched a girl in the face causing severe injuries. Self defense (weak motive) or not, never should he touch a female. His …more »

  • RE: Early Lines Imply 9-3 Regular Season for Nebraska
    Bo Pelini being a bum wouldn't have anything to do with your frustrations, would it? Pelini is going to personally keep Nebraska football looked at and perceived as 'also ran's in the world of college football. But, that's good enough for some of you, because you wouldn't know about organized football, …more »

    T-dogg, Why don't you just tell everyone that you are really 'reds riled up'.

  • RE: Legal Troubles to Impact Big Ten Rosters
    Okay, a day later now. T-Dogg and company, how about we just put our differences (and our struggles/frustrations) aside. Here we are on the eve of the Phil Steele Annual and our teams are a few days away from the start of what COULD great seasons. Seriously, just chill a bit. …more »

    Poor Dogg, I used to really enjoy his comments, quite a while ago. Not now. He's just a miserable person now.

  • RE: Why is Georgia Loved and Nebraska Dismissed?
    I find the news of Armstrong training with Bret Favre. B.F. Not in NU's best interest at all. B.F. Had almost as many career interceptions as touchdowns. He is also famous for making absolutely stupid throws into triple coverage. Making low percentage throws with hardly any time left if forgivable, but …more »

  • RE: Avery Moss Return in 2015 Still On the Table
    Admiral, That is the 9th wonder of the world.

  • RE: Is it Time to Take Iowa Seriously?
    Nebraska can be dominant again. In my opinion, what's going to be the keys to consistent championship caliber ball is this: - Show Harvey Perlman the door. This guy was instrumental in all hires since 2002 and has no clue of what a talented coaching staff is. He has a history …more »

  • RE: Is it Time to Take Iowa Seriously?
    I'm in the same boat, Admiral. Pardon the pun.

  • RE: Is it Time to Take Iowa Seriously?
    Larr, I've noticed something about you that is unique, on this site anyway. You argue your point with passion and bring what you feel is relevant in the case of Bo Pelini as coach at Nebraska. We don't agree, and that's cool. I respect your right to your opinion. I do. …more »

    Relax red. When i used the word 'exposed'I wasn't speaking of you. Should we get to where we need advice on a 'good' bail bondsman, we will let you know.

  • RE: Is it Time to Take Iowa Seriously?
    You could just tell at the post game presser after the Iowa game that Pelini was itching to unload on the first person who asked a question. Pelini's head was on a swivel and then it happened. A reporter was blamed by Pelini for being part of the media that hurt …more »

  • RE: Is it Time to Take Iowa Seriously?
    Larr, I want to ask you some honest, non-loaded questions. - Do you honestly think Pelini has brought the level of play of his players up in EVEN the last 3 years? - Can you honestly say you agree that Pelini deserves his last 2 pay raises/contract extensions that Perlman has …more »

  • RE: Is it Time to Take Iowa Seriously?
    Pelini must not run his players through the 'gauntlet' drill regarding ball handling. If he is, it's not been working. I would think that if a coach was plauged with this problem year after year, he would resort to telling these kids something that will straighten out that problem in a …more »

    Hey Larr, When you see the screen name OU7times, don't read my comments. My comments are for people who want quality football from quality coaches with quality results.

    Let me guess, you park in your yard, right?

  • RE: Is it Time to Take Iowa Seriously?
    Another huge problem is that coaching staff doesn't respect their opponents. I'll guess that in turn, the players have been convinced that their opponents will just hold still while Nebraska kicks the shit out of them. Now, Steve Hanway wants to know if Nebraska needs to take Iowa seriously. I would …more »

  • RE: Is it Time to Take Iowa Seriously?
    I wouldn't start taking Iowa serious yet. I'd wait till they beat your 4 or 5 times in a row. I could understand an ego trip back in Tom Osborne's day, but not under Pelini. No F'n way. Good god, are you serious? This is part of what's wrong with Nebraska …more »

  • RE: Illini Must Bank On Experience
    This game should be an easy Nebraska win.

  • RE: A New Chapter in a Rich History with the Hurricanes
    For sure Eric, Thanks. Jeff Smith was a very down to earth guy. We knew, and he knew that he was headed for stardom and it never got into his head. Nothing but pure talent.

  • RE: Carl Pelini Returning to Nebraska
    Bravo, Johnny! You and I might disagree some on NU football, but I would call you brother any day.

  • RE: A New Chapter in a Rich History with the Hurricanes
    Hey, it's red a-hole, everybody! Did I say that Jeff Smith knew me. No, I didn't. What I did say was that he was one of NU's best tailbacks ever. Next time I post I'll use pictures (just for you) so you can at least get a general idea. Too bad …more »

  • RE: A New Chapter in a Rich History with the Hurricanes
    My school mate Jeff Smith was the back who had the failed 2 point pass play go off his fingertips. Wichita Southeast High Buffalo product. He was a slashing tailback, and one of NU's best ever.

  • RE: Carl Pelini Returning to Nebraska
    Admiral and NU Realista, Just curious...How many times do you let someone get away with saying they you are a bad American, or that they are going to bust you in the mouth before you get a pre-emptive strike in? I have a feeling that you guys are thinkinking the same …more »

    Being "too popular" must suck, huh Robert.

  • RE: Carl Pelini Returning to Nebraska
    Sounds like someone eiher got 'kicked out' of the military or had 'issues' and was denied entry into the military. Whatever, dude. Somehow this has to do with college football. I say no, it's because their is an audience in which you can stand on your soapbox and spew.

  • RE: Carl Pelini Returning to Nebraska
    Okay, so now we know someone likes 'good music' and a lawless society. So you can hate 'all cops' , and anything to do with law enforcement, but i voice my opinion on how Pelini is not a great coach (by a longshot) and you get all bent? Hey Robert, don't …more »

  • RE: Carl Pelini Returning to Nebraska
    T-Dogg, I guess it's the cops fault someone drives around with smoke billowing out their windows. Let's see...doggie don't like cops, he don't like military....what do you like? Simple, Don't break the law, and if you do, don't bitch when you get hauled the F in.

  • RE: Carl Pelini Returning to Nebraska
    Let's get one thing straight, here. Carl Pelini has definitly learned from this experience. He signed an "irrevocable" resignation. ir·rev·o·ca·ble [ih-rev-uh-kuh-buhl] Show IPA adjective not to be revoked or recalled; unable to be repealed or annulled; unalterable: an irrevocable decree. He learned that 'next time' this happens, wait till your buzz …more »

    That should be - he was let go for failure to report IN A TIMELY MANNER the misconduct of his asst. coaches. Who had time? He was busy smokin' doobies with them.

  • RE: Carl Pelini Returning to Nebraska
    Carl Pelini willfully signed his resignation. Chun said that he was not let go for drugs, that he was let go for failure to report misconduct of his asst. coaches. That's a legal termination that is covered in his contract (and every other coach in America's contract) under 'Just cause', not …more »

  • RE: Carl Pelini Returning to Nebraska
    So predictable. Never mind hot Carl was fired for his drug involvements at FAU. The upside to this story is that now all the NU coaches can get their skunk weed at cost.

    Just because others act badly is no excuse. Here's an example: Lets say T-Dogg craps his pants everytime he smokes a bowl, sure doesn't make it acceptable to us who don't hang drywall. Yuk yuk yuk.

  • RE: What to Make of Jamal Turner at Quarterback
    Bo Pelini is no idiot. He may look the part of a bum, give lame excuses, and hate the Nebraska fan base, but he figured out how to hold NU hostage. He does what he wants, when he wants with who he wants. I would think the powers that be at …more »

    Larr, Winning does cure all ails. Barry Switzer is a good example. People who like Switzer liked his cowboy like loose coaching style. Mostly because he won. When he was 7-4, his act got worn thin. I never saw a coch who took a loss better than Barry Switzer. Although,...a 'tie' …more »

    Haa haa, Johnny, See, I knew I liked you. Example was your whitehouse comments. I will be happy to 'debate' civilly with you on where we disagree. I can't expect you or anyone else to feel exactly the way I do on issues regarding Husker football.

  • RE: What to Make of Jamal Turner at Quarterback
    @Ballfield78 and Johnny, Seriously guys, I am not making this up. Sputum was photographed during the hat swipe towards the official. He did make a comment about acting worse and never getting flagged (like that was an accptable) excuse. If Bo Pelini were in public and did to the ref outside …more »

  • RE: What to Make of Jamal Turner at Quarterback
    Johnny, I also do not care for CS call, but you have to look through the refs eyes first. The ref goes into the game already knowing what he can expect from Pelini or any coach for that matter. There was spit involved and an aggressive gesture towards the ref. Pelini …more »

  • RE: What to Make of Jamal Turner at Quarterback
    Something "mind blowing" is that Tom Osborne's teams must have been able to overcome fumbles/int's and win. AND his teams always made you feel they were in the game and not getting BLOWN out. Just my opinion, dk.

  • RE: What to Make of Jamal Turner at Quarterback
    Johnny, I like you but you need to know something. Nebraska switching conferences has a lot less to do with wins and losses than being able to hold onto the danged ball. Something a problem 2052 other 6th year head coaches should be 5 are removed from. If he took the …more »

  • RE: What to Make of Jamal Turner at Quarterback
    Johnny, Not all of those 2053 coaches had the luxury of playing in watered down Big 12 Dorks and Big 10 Bludgeoned conferences for the whole of their first 5 years, but last year MSU was a beast. Now he needs the bowl game to reach 9 wins.

    Just because they don't 'spin it' like dkdevine likes it, they are shit. I got it.

  • RE: What to Make of Jamal Turner at Quarterback
    Maybe Bo Pelini should be careful before he 'thinks' out loud next time. Arrogance is what it is when someone doesn't think about what they say in front of other people afiliated with NU sports. That was about as much of a rookie move as anyone has ever made. He's made …more »

    Yea, no one wants to play golf with Pelini either. NU spoiled him so much he takes a mulligan on every hole.

    Special emphasis on the "For now". 'Nuff said'.

  • RE: What to Make of Jamal Turner at Quarterback
    Comparing Pelini to Osborne is quite frankly, embarrassing. Comparing Pelini to Nick Saban is extremely embarrassing. Don't go there, dude.

    Got your university back and got your tradition back? I thought Nebraska's tradition was winning championships and kicking ass, not getting ass kicked resulting in no championships.

  • RE: Can Keels Duplicate Gregory's Success?
    Right, and he should have won at least 10 games, too. Those out of conference opponents were like playing high school teams. Just think what his record would be if even 1/3 of those games were against teams of substance? Woody Hayes could of beat those teams too, and he's dead. …more »

    Yea uh, get back with me when Pelini wins one championship of any kind. Haaa haaa, I'll make you a bet. I'll bet you that Pelini gets ejected from a game, gets a suspension, gets fired, gets arrested, gets a nose job before he wins any conference championship, let alone a …more »

    Captain, That's is what I believe I see for the upcoming regular season. Maybe some new blood will step up and bring sound ball handling skills with them. Who knows, maybe Pelini wins the natty, but the route goes through tOSU in a title game. Pretty much assured.

    My opinion is that the statement from Eichorst is damage control, only to save this years recruiting.

    My take on the "reprimand" question is this, if getting your crew moved to a 'lesser profile' matchup the next weekend, yea.

    GageCo., I believe is correct. I'm trying to be positive, and I do think Pellini is headed in a positive direction. It's just hard to think that all ails got fixed overnight. Stiffer competition will no doubt show if Nebraska is over the hump or not. I don't have the schedule …more »

    I guess if you felt like NU wasn't being treated fairly, why didn't you become their Martin Luther King Jr. and march for equality. I don't recall seeing your post of anything remotely like that before. I mean, unless someone just informed you that you weren't being treated fairly...for 15 …more »

  • RE: Talking Big Ten With Buckeye Commentary
    Who said any ignorant comments about Osborne? Easy, Tom may be old but he doesn't need you getting his 'back', i'm just sure. He's done fine without you. Why are you 'in' for life? I didn't think inmates were allowed computer privs. Do tell!

  • RE: Talking Big Ten With Buckeye Commentary
    How kind, Jessie. What were the statistics in that game? Yea, your team (not you) beat OU last year but by a touchdown. Let's see...a win against OU late in the season against a decimated team, by injuries, and a freshman QB who threw 5 ints including the one deep in …more »

  • RE: Talking Big Ten With Buckeye Commentary
    Dwayne, Beebe is the worst commisioner ever spawned (Bud Selig a close second). Unfortunately (for him), he will be unemployed soon. I believe. I do also realize that the Big 12 was a temporary conference because of the way it was mis-managed. Does Texas get the golden boy treatment...probably, it would …more »

  • RE: Talking Big Ten With Buckeye Commentary
    Yea, that 'meter' is still out of order till next week.

  • RE: Talking Big Ten With Buckeye Commentary
    Scott, Were you watching the smae Big 12 Championship game I was watching, because...there was NO extra second in The Big 12 Championship game. That one second was regulation time. Did you watch the Big 12 Championship Game (won by Texas) with your eyes or your heart? For those of you …more »

  • RE: The Horn Ultimatum
    @Huskerfaithful1, All is well in my life. Thanks, though. I do hear a lot of 'finger to the rest of the Big 12' walking out the door. Nice n cowardly. Mostly, it seems tied to UT. Really? Get over it already. There are better teams out there, than NU, believe it …more »

  • RE: The Horn Ultimatum
    Probably ought to go. If you can't beat Texas, it's your only solution. Leaving any tradition gained along with any rivalries will soon be forgotten when payday comes. The days of Nebraska in the Big 8 are over and the Big 12 wasn't as prosperous...so, yea...go. You need that Big 10 …more »

  • RE: Is Stadium Expansion Worth Risking Sellout Streak?
    Even if the extra seats didn't sell out completely they would still pay themselves off in a very short time. So...the real question is are you ready to possibly lose the record of consecutive sellouts at the expense of not allowing your own fans see their own team at a …more »

  • RE: Big Things Expected from OU
    Bnahusker and OKHusker both have valid points. I love it when someone comes out and cuts through the crap with some logic. Usually it's Jason. Fact is that this fansite has changed in the past year or so. When someone posts with a rival name then it seems (in some cases) …more »

  • RE: Big Things Expected from OU
    I can just see it now. OU-NU in the Big 12 Championship Game and a 'certain' team loses by one point with one second on the clock. I has to be a CONSPIRACY. Not ready to listen to all that whining again. No thanks, I'd rather play Kansas or Mizzouri or... …more »

    This is hilarious!

  • RE: Nebraska might go to the Big 10. Will the famed traveling fans follow?
    If Nebraska leaves for any other conference, they leave with series losses against Oklahoma and Texas. Oklahoma plays Texas every year and we love it because it is a real down to earth rivalry. If your feeling that you just can't win, a fresh start in a new conference might be …more »

  • RE: Nebraska's Spring Game Turnout Second to None
    Or, another way you could look at it is that The University of Alabama isn't strapped for cash and doesn't need to charge for spring game attendance. Their coach makes $4.2 million beans and they get what they pay for. Now that 'thorns in the side' Mike Leach and Mark Mangino …more »

  • RE: Suh's Gift Further Cements His Legacy
    Suh's picking up the slack in the Strength and Conditioning dept. Who knows, maybe this could lead the way for Nicks to fork up a mil or so since he's so sorry about his bad behavior back when he was a player.

  • RE: The Different Goals of 2010
    Okay, I read the link and what I got from it is that OU spied on Texas to get an edge on the Red River War (nothing to do with this article, for those of you keeping score at home). The extra point to win the game, for Oklahoma (also has …more »

    Good point. A buddy of mine said that Nebraska had one of only 3 Heisman Trophy winners that were convicted felons. I told him that their was no way that it could be true because Gregg Marrow would have posted a link for all to see. Needless to say, he is …more »

  • RE: The Different Goals of 2010
    Yea Bill, and I was quoted 3 consecutive losing seasons from the 90's. What's the dif? Neither proves anything. That's the point. Save your hugs for the Championship game. You can get the same opportunity to put your money where your mouth is. Steve and I had a wager a couple …more »

  • RE: The Different Goals of 2010
    Yes, OU had 3 consecutive losing seasons back in the 90's, no less. With 3 lousy coaches. So what? OU has a 16 year consecutive win streak against Nebraska. So? Who's pointing fingers? I assure you that I am in no pain with 7 National Championships, 42 conference titles, 25 bowl …more »

  • RE: Could New Recruiting Rule Hurt Texas?
    I get what you say. It was great when Coach Stoops (to you) won 5 straight against Texas. Did anyone else notice that the real champion won the BCS Championship game. Man, that Alabama put the spanky on Texas.

  • RE: The Different Goals of 2010
    TJSTERB said it all. Step back while I throw the BS flag. You should know that OU is NOT worried about Nebraska. If you can't see that OU's team was decimated by injuries last year and then Nebraska wins by 7? Not a resounding victory but a victory non the less. …more »

  • RE: Could New Recruiting Rule Hurt Texas?
    Did I mention lately that Alabama is one hell of a team?

  • RE: The Different Goals of 2010
    Landry Jones will be a better QB this year. The word is that his nervous feet days are over. He owns the OU record for TD passes in a single game with 6. I can see him playing and beating Texas this year but we will have to wait to see. …more »

  • RE: Restoring the Aura
    Paul, OU has been measured by their Gibbs, Blake and Howard S's teams, and fairly too. Man. you talk about a 3 coach black eye for the program! Coach Pelini probably IS a better motivator than Coach Stoops but Bowl games are not all there is to it. I have looked …more »

  • RE: Restoring the Aura
    Tom, Boz is a Sooner fan? Hmmmmmm. I think Stoops is just under .500 against Texas. He did have 5 wins in a row a few years back and he just finished his 11th season. It's really amazing. A coach (Stoops in this case) has a 'bad' season and the whole …more »

  • RE: Restoring the Aura
    Fair enough. I did spell Iowa State correctly, right?

  • RE: Restoring the Aura
    Bozo, Of course you didn't research your own teams success against Texas. Nebraska is 1-9 in the last 10 games against Texas. Texas is no Iowa State. Oooops, lets use a different example. Heh heh.

  • RE: How 2010 Resembles 1994
    Born2bleedred, In total honesty I can understand the anger/disappointment of Nebraska fans with the 'extra one second' aspect of the previous Big 12 Champ Game, but...I think that IF the clock shown on TV (who really knows) was correct, it seems that it was the right call. Like Texas/Mack Brown or …more »

  • RE: How 2010 Resembles 1994
    Yep, signing bonus is #1 for the player and bragging rights for the fans. I'd have to say that Suh is the logical safe choice. But I hope I'm wrong...

    "Ladder", What are your thoughts on the ongoing 'first round pick' controversy? Love the fact that McCoy has at least and according to who you believe Bradford has a real shot being picked first, depending on his Pro Day showing. St. Louis probably should negotiate their first pick and maybe still …more »
