| Tiger Rant|| Nebraska Syndrome - Maderan on 11/20/15 at 9:31 am|
I worry about us having what I am going to call "Nebraska Syndrome". Nebraska fired Frank Solich in 2003 after a 10-3 season. He had a 75% win percentage in his tenure of 6 years. The fan base believed that he couldn't get them past the mediocrity of not having a perfect record. Since then the have ...View Topic - Replies (25)

Just opened and tried it out for lunch. Came away impressed. It seems like a focus on quality. Burger is good and a thicker style than I have seen for any fast food place. Fries were some of the best I've had anywhere. Thin cut in house with skin on. Highlight was the milk shake. They make...

Inspired by the kissing your kids thread. What about the cheek kiss as a greeting between friends (Male-female or female-female)? I and almost everyone I know has always done this and it has never felt weird. Pretty sure it is a Louisiana/Southern US thing in America. Common in Europe and Lat...View Topic - Replies (32)

I don't know if this has been pointed out but Joe Alleva was AD at DUKE during the false accusation and rush to judgement on the Duke lacrosse player rape case. Given his experience with a matter like this, and the general public's rush to call for suspensions in this case, I believe he would adv...View Topic - Replies (1)

If we get 3 QB's this year, I think we loose out on any top QB's for the next two years. Creating a thin situation in the future. I know we have a big need to fill now but I am a big supporter of taking one every year and not several. Scares away recruits....View Topic - Replies (5)
