    SI - Iowa

    I think this is going to sting and Doyle doesn't stick with the program. That said, is it any different if he said "back to the ghetto" than if he told the white kid "back to the farm"? In the end it is motivation showing the kid the opportunity is in front of you if you want it, if not there...

    OT: Omaha Tornado 1975

    I was at a pizza place in downtown Millard. The women and children were all shuffled into the walk in freezer and the men stood by the bar, but close enough to dive in the freezer if needed. They kept serving and my dad was pretty lit by the time we left. It took forever to get home as every...

    NCAA NIL announcements

    The booster compliance piece is where this is going to be problematic. The current definition of a booster is so broad I would bet most on here would meet the definition of a booster. From the NCAA: NCAA Division III Bylaw 13.02.9 Representative of Athletics Interests or Booster. A...

    Ricketts Allows Takeout Sales of Mixed Drinks

    Anyone remember the drive thru liquor store in downtown Millard? When I was a kid my dad would always drive thru. You pulled into essentially a car port they had a sliding window, you placed your order and out it came. It must have been around until close to 1980 or so.

    FWIW Washington gets felony dropped

    I believe the NCAA requires a certain number of hours demonstrating progress to a degree. Having been in college for two years this would be 48 hours completed I believe. I assume he is not enrolled this semester so he may be able to get by with just 36 hours. Based on how the fall semester...

    OBJ’s cash

    The NCAA rules are insane but they are what all member schools agree to. The impermissible benefits is particularly insane. OBJ's cash would not be an issue if it was available to all LSU students, the fact that he singled out some students (athletes) is what makes it impermissible. It is so...

    Betts signing on Friday

    My wife teaches at a school that has about 5 division 1 recruits year with 2 or 3 being power 5 level recruits. She is approached at the start of each school year with the 1 or 2 that have serious work to do on the academic side in order to qualify and has essentially been the go to person to...

    Talked to a Texas fan recently.....

    I agree they are getting in to Texas, I said that. The issue is if they can compete in the classroom and stay both eligible and in school when they are the least accomplished students at the school, with no other peers except other athletes. It is tough enough to handle division one athletics...

    Talked to a Texas fan recently.....

    I recently came up with a theory around this as it relates to not just Texas but a lot of public schools. It is a bit out there though. My understanding is that as a "regular student" Texas is near impossible to get into as an in-state student. The regents have set up admissions where if you...

    Mo is no longer with the team

    Weed is not legal for him to use in Nebraska and it is not legal for him to use in his home state as I believe he is still under 21. I would also imagine Frost, Moos, and the university as a whole would not/will never condone players self medicating to get through tough times.

    NU's biggest rival?

    Don't sell NU short with NW as a rival, the Cornhuskers deserve better than that. Maybe recent games have been close but historically NW is an embarrassment to the B1G and should be no one's rival. The history of the 2 programs would say NU should never consider NW a rival. In terms of the...

    New State-Of-The-Art Training Facility!!

    One thing to think about is the whole budget will not go to the football facility. I believe the plans are also to include a new pool among other items. When Iowa built their new pool 10 years ago the cost was over $50M. Granted this included some general rec facilities as well but I would...

    UW accused of "slow walking" Cephus...

    ZJ- There is a little bit more to the story. The girl had made some self harm statements in the week or two leading up to the accusation and her friends (my son included) contacted the school and she was forced to meet with a mental health person. The mental health professional stated her...

    UW accused of "slow walking" Cephus...

    When my son was a freshman he went out of town for a weekend early in the school year. He came home Sunday to an email he received Friday late and a letter under his dorm room door. The letter said he had been accused of sexual harassment, assault, and stalking. The letter gave no...

    Iowa has 22 commits already?

    I'm sure both coaches have that game circled every year because honestly for one or both it will be critical in winning the West. Either one or both teams will be battling for the West or one will need to win to keep pace/ahead of Wisc. Nebraska can have higher aspirations but without winning...

    That's a man, baby!!

    I have had this conversation with my teenage son and I always bring it back (as with most things) to be careful what you ask for. Due to Title IX and the relatively new transgender in sport conversations we are rapidly approaching a time where there will be no distinction between male and...

    Washington due in court in about an 75 minutes.

    A similar situation happened at my son's high school a couple of years ago. Two 16 year olds hooked up at a party. The girl had a huge crush on the guy and when they got to the bedroom he asked if she was OK with what they were going to do, she said yes. knowing she had a crush on him he went...

    Why do most other fan bases not see it?

    Again no one has said that there is no reason to expect change, it is simply that other fans bases want to see the change rather than just believe it is going to happen. There will be change and there is a good chance that the changes will be good but until we see the change on the field it is...

    Legalize weed already...

    The gateway argument is a false premise. Would I say that most meth heads have used pot? Yes. That does not make the inverse true to say all people that smoke pot will become meth heads, the numbers are not there. The vast majority of people that smoke pot will never try another drug because...

    Why do most other fan bases not see it?

    The OP asked why don't other fan bases see what Husker fans are seeing. A rival fan came and answered the question exactly as it was posed. That is the rival fan's perspective. No one said it was right or that Nebraska can't improve, he simply said until a rival fan sees it on the field his...
