re: History Nerds: The most decisive battle fought since the year 1800? - Cfrobel
Why I said it was the only real chance they had, but only a chance. With the Soviet government surviving the disasters at the border and the counterattacks at Yelnya the only hope left was a rapid advance and collapse of Moscow before Christmas. ...

re: History Nerds: The most decisive battle fought since the year 1800? - Cfrobel
The battle for Moscow in 41 was far more important than Stalingrad in 42 as it was the only real chance the Reich had to collapse the USSR. Even if disaster is avoided and the 6th Army manages to escape the Stalingrad pocket the war was still already effectively over. In fact the release of th...

Das Reich took a beating while attached to Army Group Center. Of course at that time it was made up of two former SS-VT regiments of questionable quality and a poor quality SS-TV regiment. ...

re: Why doesn’t the Korean War get more recognition? - Cfrobel
Huh?? Without UN intervention the Soviet backed Kim regime takes the while peninsula and Stalin is justified in believing that war weary America will back down and will return to isolationism. Instead Stalin backed off leaving N Korea hanging and for the Chinese to deal with the problem (laying the...

re: Why doesn’t the Korean War get more recognition? - Cfrobel
A colossal blunder by Stalin to give Kim the go ahead to invade. Strengthened the US position in Korea, Japan and Formosa and badly strained Soviet-Sino relations. All to end up with a poorly run state that that the USSR ended having to prop up....

re: Will Nebraska football ever make a comeback? - Cfrobel
Fair enough, I wasn't at Nebraska in 98 and living in the northeast it was difficult to pay detailed attention to the games. The 99 QB battle still seems to have a lot of resentment among fans, Crouch supposedly quitting doesn't seem to help. ...

He played QB with injuries in 98. Even without the injuries I think Crouch would have ended up the better option QB anyway....

re: Will Nebraska football ever make a comeback? - Cfrobel
[quote]Which QB are you talking about? Crouch? And which RB? [/quote] Newcombe at QB and DeAngelo Evans at RB. I attended Nebraska during the Solich years and while the record in 03 looks good now at the time fans were disgruntled in being run off the field in the big games: 41-24 L to Missou...

re: Former powers that may never see another NC again - Cfrobel
While I certainly don't think Nebraska will ever play for 4 titles in 5 years and win 3 in 4, I don't think they should be considered a dead program. Nebraska has deserved 20 years of pain for tearing apart what Devaney and Osborne took 40 years to build but Frost has been recruiting well and jus...

re: Navy Missile Sub Has Begun Its First Patrol Armed With Controversial Low Yield Nukes - Cfrobel
It's amazing how few people understand MAD and think nuclear arms are a race and not a critical balance. If we don't allow Russia to at least believe they have 2nd strike capability we risk an accidental launch on warning. It's amazing it hasn't happened already. ...

re: 1995 Nebraska dominant stats - Cfrobel
I think it all comes down to the rules, 2019 LSU is the best I've seen since the rules changed dramatically to favor the pass. Nebraska in 95 was the perfection of power football. ...

re: 1995 Nebraska dominant stats - Cfrobel
Lewis and Sapp got worked in that Orange Bowl. Miami's entire D was standing around with hands on their hips in the 4th quarter. Schlesinger rumbling into the endzone on the fullback trap was an absolute thing of beauty, I can watch that play over and over. ...
