I feel like Memorial Stadium in Lincoln is too low. It has to beat out the big house and Iowa. The stadium is the third largest city in Nebraska on game days. The fandom lives, breathes, eats, and dies NU football because there is literally nothing use around for hundreds of miles in every direction. They are the most hospitable fan base in all of football, but don't misconstrue that as a knock against their fandom. Think about how long they have held onto balloons waiting for their first touchdown! 

Full disclosure, I am also a Colorado grad.... so I have a special level of hatred for Nebraska (I'll put it on par with my penn state hatred as an Ohio State fan).

So grateful to see some rye get the respect it deserves. Rye whiskey has a much older tradition as the preferred American whiskey than bourbon does. George Washington made rye whiskey at Mount Vernon. Bourbon was my first love but rye has developed into my favorite dalliance on the side. If this was a MFK breakdown:

M: bourbon

F: rye

K: vodka

The back 7 of the Meyer D has speed that could match Usain Bolt. Lee and Shazier as the outside linebackers seems unfair. Tressel's team would have to play man ball, something Tressel did best and try to ground things out. I am not sure Troy would be able to get away from that speed and you might have to put Pryor in to at least shed some tackles. I am bitterly disappointed that I don't have an NCAA game to make this match up happen.

As a native of Columbus and a University of Colorado graduate, I would not trade my college years there for anything. Beautiful campus, beautiful state, and beautiful coeds. 

Having said that, I would skip the football games if they conflicted with OSU games that were being shown on TV.....

John gave me one of the greatest gifts I could have ever received. His wife, Beth, and my mother were sorority sisters in college and good friends. Their kids and my siblings were friends. John had one of the earliest camcorders on the market and used it to film his kids birthdays and other family events. My siblings were in those home movies. After my sister died from a genetic disease and my parents decided they wanted to have another child so they had me. John's home movies are the only recordings of my sister that exist and the only way that I was ever able to see my sister being a kid. I am eternally grateful for being able to see my sister be alive and not just a still image in a photograph. He was generous, humble, and extremely kind.

I’ll never forget how mad I was in 2004 when Jeff Backes, 2000 Mr. Football in Ohio,  pride of Upper Arlington, intercepted a pass in the end zone when the Bucks were driving for the tying score with 5 minutes to go. 

What a mess that game was.

Who are you replacing him with that is better? Serious question

In the Tressel years, we would be lauding the fact that we were grinding out wins despite a team with considerable shortcomings. We would be thrilled with 10-1. It’s amazing how much the goal posts have moved. Nobody is Alabama. They are on the greatest run in college football history. Seems like we are measuring Meyer against them and his own past accomplishments. Too bad we can’t enjoy the most prolific passing attack in school history....

The short passes are more effective this year because the ball gets there so much quicker. Our extremely athletic receivers get an extra half second to make a defender miss which leads to big plays while maintaining minimal risk. Cardale could launch a football but he had a wind up that took time. JT didn’t have the arm strength or quick release. Haskins has such a quick release and velocity that the plays are much more effective. The wr screen is the new QB run. The short passes also help protect an inexperienced offensive line. It won’t surprise me if his deep throw percentage is lower than any JT year at the end of this season. I’m just curious about what the NFL scouts will make of his depth of target stats.

I didn't read it as Urban trying to get him to the Patriots. I read it in the context of how he has handled the this whole Zach Smith fiasco. If he had concrete evidence, he would have done something about it.

Those damn Banana Slugs have the Nick Saban of weaving instructors.  As a Colorado alum, I have been earmarking my donations to improve our facilities to attract better recruits. Somebody needs to knock them off their high horse.
