    Realistinha and OUSiete clearly disprove any theories of 'Intelligent Design'. In fact I heard thru the grapevine that photos of the 'dynamic' duo appear in Encyclopedia Britanica's section on 'the missing link'. Ooo, ouch!

    PE, Yeah, racism is manufactured as exemplified by its continuation by the White Man vs everybody else. Racism is a subset if classism which is the main part of capitalism. I never said YOU were born a racist but its clear youve done next to nothing to overcome the conditioning. Still …more »

    Gage, To claim the Native Americans treated each other as brutally and genocidally as tje White Man has and does is categorically false. Not even close to being an informed opinion.

    Is 'tribalism' an African word? Is it a Native American word? No, it is an English word--from England.

    Well, some teams get hot at the right time--maybe we are that team. Who could have predicted our D would partying like it was 2009 vs Mitten given what we've seen this year, especially vs the rush where going into that game they were giving up 7+ yds per? It was …more »

    Well, if our D keeps it up like today, we coulf win out, I like our chances much better now vs Sparty. TA is growing up and looking like potential star material. There were 2-3 drops today that could've given him better numbers. Great poise w TA though.

  • RE: Michigan’s Loss at Penn State Could Impact Legends Division Race

  • RE: Nebraska Dominates the Worst Team in the Big Ten

    Hadn't realized the next 2 games are away. They both should be gimmes with TA most likely getting the nod. Which begs the question: will he be the starter vs jNU? Probably, since I can't see Tater being that sharp after a month of doing next to nothing. Purdue, well, just …more »

  • RE: Nebraska Earns Measure of Redemption Versus Illinois
    Armstrong isnt near the rusher as TM but he looked pretty good against a horrible D. Things will be different in Nov if he's still starting, when the competition gets tougher. Hes a good rookie, but still a rookie.

  • RE: Nebraska Earns Measure of Redemption Versus Illinois
    Judging by how the rest of our future foes looked yesterday, we still got a shot at running the table and getting to the CCG. We're still pretty weak @ the DT position though and our LBs generally look lost. We got the stops when we needed to though.

  • RE: Where the Stats Lie
    I think the biggest problem with our DL is lack of depth. The starters are Green--Tjad and Ankrah the exceptions--and the b/ups are greener. They have talent, they will improve, but will it be fast enough and good enough for conference play? Crossing my fingers at this point.
