    It is interesting to me. Every time I have been to the midwest I can't wait to get home to the east coast. I always find it interesting when people say the opposite. I guess I am missing whatever it is that is so appealing about the midwest.

    Well, TBF, most people prefer where they grew up, just a fact. I swore I'd never live in NE having grown up in the area since I can't stand the winter and love the water. Yet here I am. I have lived on both coasts and they are still nice places to visit, but I flat out couldn't stand living in CA or on the east coast. I don't like cities and crowded in places. I don't like how expensive everything is, and with all due respect, many people out there are incredibly rude. Shrug, YMMV.

    Why does it not surprise me or probably anybody else on this board that you love the east coast and can't get wait to leave the midwest?Winking

    KABOOM! Now that would be interesting. They have the perfect QB for Urban's system who returns from injury next year. They're in a talent hotbed and Urban could resurrect another program.....

    For me, the appeal was two-fold... being closer to family and getting away from the crush of people. I actually enjoyed California quite a bit, everything was right there at our fingertips just 5 minutes away. But if you needed to go more than 5 miles for something, it could easily take an hour depending on the time of day. Traffic was always a nightmare. And we lived in a 900 square foot condo in California. That was all we could afford. We sold it and bought a 2600 square foot house with a fenced in back yard. That had a certain appeal to moving back to Nebraska as well.

    Know a bunch of people who are exactly the opposite. I will say every time I visit my in laws in Connecticut it’s depressing.

    Love visiting most places on the left coast though.

    Perhaps you went to the wrong coast Winking

    I just find it interesting, the different cultures of north America and the absolute commitment people have to them. It fascinates me.

    I grew up in Lincoln and have lived on the east coast since 1989.
    I love both places. They both have their charms.

    To be honest, it's the rudeness that I miss when I am in the midwest. My experience is that rudeness is honesty.

    Why would Myer even entertain that? I mean, I would love for it to be true, but I can't see it.

    Yeah. Ha. I consider anywhere out here that is within a two hour drive to the shore, the coast. Because technically, unless you have a beach house, you don't live "on the coast" either.

    This does explain much of your posting history. Very direct in your posts.

    Not a bad thing, just helps me understand better and not get all defensive. Thanks for sharing your perspective.

    Yeah, the problem for me is that I always feel like people in the midwest are full of shit. Because people can't really be that friendly. My wife is from the Chicago area and it freaks me out out there. I feel like people are BSing me.

    I remember my first Nebraska game. My friend and I didn't stop laughing from the time we got off the plane. We thought it was all an act. Even the cop that pulled us over was way too nice.

    I'm originally from Montreal where I learned to distrust anglophones. Then I moved to NJ where I learned to distrust everybody. The whole midwest seems too fake to me. I prefer rudeness, I suppose I should apologize for mine, but then i would be dishonest.

    That’s the beauty of message boards... the things people won’t say to your face can be easily typed on a message board. I’m definitely guilty of that.

    If he doesn't want to come now what makes you think he will want to come in 5 years after having developed Florida into a CFP team?

    Exactly why many midwesterners don't like the coasts. Rudeness doesn't mean honesty. It means you're rude.

    My brother rooted for Oklahoma one afternoon while they were playing Nebraska. So, I obviously rooted for Nebraska. And there was just something about the way they played that hooked me.

    That 2014 list is quite the mixed bag. Could have made some $$ on Riley.
