The way I look at it, if we just win the next 6 games, we should be OK.
The frustrating part is the difference is less than the Cooper years.
Zzzzzzz . . . .
Two SEC teams and two B1G teams in the CFP? That might be fun! And piss a lot of people off. Let's do it!
I went to the game with an umbrella (this is back when they allowed them) and went home soaked to the bone and no idea where my umbrella went to. Most fun I ever had at a game!
That was almost boring. I love it!
That's 55 yards off of wet freaking grass. Damn.
Sparty making just enough mistakes to make this not a game.
Interesting link. Thanks!
Another interesting, but small factor is the lack of quality walk-ons from the western half of the state. If you remember back in their glory days, they always had a few starters that began their careers as walk-ons. These walk-ons were often from the 7 on 7 teams that existed in the small towns in the Western part of the state. The problem is that as the populations of these small towns declined, the 7 on 7 teams slowly disappeared to where there are very few left anymore. Consequently, there are fewer farm-strong high school football players that want to play for Nebraska. (There was actually an interesting long read article about this in the Omaha World maybe five or six years ago. I don't have a link - sorry.)
Again, it is not a big factor, but a couple of extra quality starters a year would certainly help.
Very tempting! Thanks for the info!
Lol. Unless it is William & Mary. That just seems cruel!
It's Rose-Hulman, btw. Unless there really some hapless dude named Ross getting his butt kicked.
So one TD every two minutes equals about 200-some points.
Wow. No slow start today. Dang.
Ooo - I like Jenny.
Well that was easy!
It is also the 150th anniversary of the golden spike driven at the transcontinental railroad in Utah. Though more likely it is for the sesquicentennial for the City of Muskegon. Could be that.
I love a little history with my morning coffee!
Both absolute gentlemen who did things the right way. The class and kindness they both showed transcended either of their records. If I had a kid who played basketball I would be thrilled if they played for either man. I wish them both the best.
If play is stopped for an injury (or "injury"), that player has to sit out six plays instead of just one.
It took me 30 years to do that!
As much fun as it is to poke fun at the millennial Gen-Z'ers (or whatever they are now), frostbite is nothing to mess around with. I remember one winter day in '83 I believe, the sun was out, there was no wind but the temperature was about -5. (This was a Saturday, so there were no classes to close.) I almost froze my ears off. Literally. There was a layer of ice on them when I got inside and when they thawed out it was the most painful thing I can remember. Later that week, I was surprised at the number of students around campus that had ears and fingers bandaged from frostbite or near frostbite. Given the amount of walking between buildings the average student does in a day, I am good with no class tomorrow. We Ohioans are simply not as mentally prepared for this sort of cold like they are in North Dakota or Canada. Canadians can point and laugh and call me names all they want. Whatever, I hate Winter.
More like a Daynasty!
