    This is our board. If disparaging comments about your program bother you, then stick to your own board. You came to our board and made us read your disparaging comments about us. This is not a general college football message board. It is the Husker board. If somebody came over to your board and wrote disparaging comments about your program, then you'd have every right to be upset and respond accordingly. But they didn't. What you did is like showing up at somebody's tailgate uninvited and trashing their program. If you want to respectfully discuss things with us, then fine. Nobody would have any problem with you being here. But you seem to have no desire to be even the least respectful towards us and our program, on our board. You are the one with the problem here, not us.

    Corvallis might be a nice town and OSU might be a decent school....but it doesn't matter what year you choose. We would stomp your second-rate program into the ground. Go home and stop drinking.

    Damn. I'm still pretty positive this recruiting class is gonna finish good. But, the last thing I wanna see today is a bunch of Beaver fans talking smack on our Husker board.

    Tell ya what, homie...talk to your AD, have him call ours and set it up....and make sure it's a home-and-home or I'll be back here to call you all a bunch of pussies. We will beat ya. You guys have tradition and history...and that's about it. We had one common opponent, and we played them when they'd figured our their QB situation and were better; also we were decimated by injuries...and our margin of victory was larger than yours. So there's that.

    I know Riley. I know where you are headed. You are all just bitter about my comments because you know it's valid info; like hearing your girlfriend's ex talk about her bedroom manner. Just stuff you don't want to hear.

    I was aggressive on this board, this is true. I said some things about your coaches, also true. I've never been to Lincoln. I said my presumption is that Corvallis is better as a town; that's based mainly on geography and my knowledge of at least one of the two towns. I also said OSU does not take a back seat to NU. I said "least of all" which is a back-handed slap at NU, I can concur. I'm have no reason not to think that Nebraska is a fine institution. I just think your AD made a terrible hire; but I'm thankful for it.

    Yeah, this is your board and it's like your tailgate...and if that, to you guys, is a license to say ignorant things that have not foundation in reality or fact, then you can have it. I'd hope that on our own message boards, Beavers fans would at least moderate themselves in such manner that maintains logic and common sense.

    You do know that schools like Nebraska don't schedule home-and-homes with schools like Oregon St. don't you?

    Nebraska fans still living in the past like it's 1997. You had great tradition, but in today's college football landscape, you're as much irrelevant as Oregon State is...

    Have you ever heard about OSU's basketball history? One of the winningest programs in NCAA. Multiple elite 8 and final 4 appearances, pac10 championships, #1 rankings, and NBA hall of fame members. That level of success ended in the late 80's early 90's. All that history means nothing now, the basketball program is irrelevant. Get where I'm going with this? Sound familiar to Nebraska football?

    The excuses you guys have come up with for why Calvin picked us over Neb is laughable... you guys seriously think we paid his family?!? Wow. Just maybe the kid decided he wanted to play with his close friend, or after he saw who our new WR coach is, he decided he wanted to play for him. If you forgot, Calvin was originally high on OSU until our previous coach left and took a head coaching position.

    "He made a mistake choosing OSU" Why? Seriously, I want to know? If his ultimate goal is to go pro, he'll have just as good of an opportunity at OSU as he would other schools. Heard of Brandin Cooks? Markus Wheaton? Worked out for them coming here...

    It's like this was a huge surprise that a kid choose OSU over Neb... Hell, this isn't even the first time it's happened this year. Isaiah Hodgins, a higher ranked WR than Calvin had an offer from Neb and visited, signed with us two months ago.

    The way you guys view OSU is pathetic, but not as pathetic as you delusions that the Neb program is still like it was in the 90s. Those times are gone. Time to move on.

    And could you also remind us since we live in the 1990's the last time the Beavers went to and Won a bowl game since we have lived in the past for so long.

    Beavers hoops has the necessary resources?

    Beavers hoops has state of the art facilities?

    Beavers hoops sell out every game?

    Beavers hoops ranked in top 10 recently?

    I can go on, and on, and on, and on but let's start with the first three questions.

    Mike Riley recruits and players, I highly doubt you want to go there.

    Beavers hoops has the necessary resources? Yes, all the coaches just received free tire rotations for one year on their personal vehicles since OSU can't afford the use of planes for travel.

    Beavers hoops has state of the art facilities? Yes, we just got fresh gravel on our outdoor practice courts...

    Beavers hoops sell out every game? Yes, but many open seats are reserved per game in case fans decide to show up late...

    Beavers hoops ranked in top 10 recently? How well did that top ten ranking work out for you guys?

    I can go on, and on, and on, and on but let's start with the first three questions.



    Mike Riley recruits and players, I highly doubt you want to go there.[/QUOTE] He recruits and players? I can't go there because you make no sense.

    Brandin Cooks was a 4* recruit who was originally committed to UCLA. Flipped and signed with OSU. He was not an unknown that Mike found and coached..... if that's what your getting at.

    First off, I didn't think you would be able to answer my questions. That's pretty common, throw out an absurd statement then when asked about it, back off with snide comments.

    You brought up Cooks, not me. You brought him up as "see, receivers can have success at Oregon State".

    Except, you forgot that he was recruited, signed and coached by Mike Riley.

    I wish Nebraska nothing but the best and for a beaver fan instead of being on this board and criticizing Nebraska we should be more professional and not criticize Nebraska football based off of them losing a recruiting battle to OSU. I know a lot of fans of the beavs are hurt about the way things went with Riley when he left and what not but instead of bashing Nebraska be thankful that coach Anderson came to replace him. I hope Nebraska has nothing but success under Riley and they can get back to the GBR everyone remembers. Oregon state still has a lot to prove under Anderson he's brought in good players since being there but as a fan stop going on this board criticizing there Team cause we would be just as pissed as they are if they did it to us. So all you GBR fans please kick the shit outta Oregon this year and Goodluck on the rest of the recruiting battles y'all are in this year.

    Actually, not familiar at all. First of all, Oregon State has never won a national championship in basketball. They've never even made it to the national championship game. Two Final Four appearances-the last of which was in 1963. The last win in the tournament came in 1975(not counting a 1982 win which was vacated due to NCAA sanctions). That's nowhere even remotely close to the level of excellence we have achieved in football and much longer ago too.

    Nebraska fans can lament over losing recruits like Isaiah Hodgins or Jamire Calvin to the likes of OSU. But we've seen it over and over in college sports. It doesn't matter how much tradition or resources a school has. At the end of the day coaching is the great equalizer. If it wasn't, then schools like Texas wouldn't be taking a back seat to schools like Baylor and TCU. Texas would have been in the college playoffs by now. Look at what happened with Penn State, Colorado. Great hires does wonders for programs needing to turn things around. Look at UW....even with Seattle as its setting, great academics and it's resources. UW was mediocre for over a decade until Chris Peterson showed up. You can bash schools like OSU all you want. In this day and age, once you make the right hire, it really doesn't matter if you are a "blue blood" program does it? All power 5 schools pretty much have state of the art facilities, an array of helmets and uniforms, are on t.v. a decent amount of time.

    Kids don't care as much about what you have done 10 years ago. Coaching is where programs can become relevant very quickly or drop. Who knows what will ultimately happen under Andersen. He seems to be on the right track. Here's hoping you guys can get back to where you were. The Nebraska program has been nothing but class, you have and do win the right way. But
    before looking down on other schools and wondering why someone would possibly choose them instead of your own. You may want to think about why Nebraska isn't as competitive with recruits it once was, and I'm not taking about just vs. OSU. Riley is a good guy. The antithesis of Pelini. With that said is he going to lose less than 4 games a season at Nebraska? Is Riley the type of coach (even with Nebraska's resources) to guide the program to finish in the top 15-20 in recriuting? Because what I'm reading, Nebraska's pedigree alone should be enough to accomplish that.

    RSS mod basically confirmed something shady went down with Calvin.

    Can't wait to find out exactly what it was.

    Edit: I'm presuming the comment was about Calvin and not Holmes.

    Some folks need to open their eyes. They think a select group of schools are willing to get dirty. That's not the case. Recruits are getting action from all kinds of programs across the country. Doesn't matter if they win four games or twelve. We are always going to be vulnerable when having to compete against that for recruits.

    P.S. I'll be accepting apologies from certain posters until the start of the Packer game. :)

    Clearly I'm not without bias as I live in Eugene, Oregon and have been a Nebraska fan for thirty years, but the above post is clearly fueled by emotion. I feel the need to debunk a few of his points.

    1.) While most metrics would rate Nebraska above OSU, that is not what the Cornhusker football program hangs it's hat on in terms of academics. The academic support that athletes on campus receive on campus is without peer. This is why the program produces so many Academic All Americans. Also, suggesting that OSU is on par with UC Berkeley, UCLA, UVA, etc. is lunacy.

    2.) Corvallis is not a Sh*thole. It's a fun little college town. It's downtown is cute but it is a far cry from the Haymarket district in Lincoln. Personally the climate in Lincoln would prevent me from really wanting to live there, but if you take weather out of the equation I would choose to live in Lincoln and it would be an easy choice. Though it couldn't be further from the truth, I don't mind the Eugene is a cesspool comment. Oregon State/Corvallis has always had a severe inferiority complex relative to the University of Oregon and the city of Eugene.

    3.) Not going to get into this one. Who knows? It's possible but I'd prefer not to insinuate these sorts of thing unless the evidence is clear.

    4.) We'll see. Mike Riley is responsible for some of the most successful seasons in Oregon State's history. He is by all accounts an exceptional human being. It is clear from your take that you are ungrateful for the many seasons that he delivered in which OSU performed well above it's pay grade. Gary Anderson is a quality coach but given the landscape of the PAC12, OSU has no chance whatsoever of competing for PAC12 championships. On a few occasions they were close to doing so with Riley at the helm. That is quite the achievement considering that OSU has been without Riley at the helm (and a few Erickson years) one of the worst D1 programs in the country.

    5.) This is so silly. Rosters are not even set yet. How can you possibly make such claims without having any idea who starters are, etc? If you're comparing the scores over Oregon, grow up. There is no transitory property to results. If you go ask any Oregon fan, what was the best game they played all year, the unanimous response will be the game in Lincoln. You played Oregon under a lame duck coach with nothing to play for. I am confident that Oregon at the time we played them would've beaten the Beavs by two to three scores.
