Tomorrow is the last day of the Regular season. It's the Heroes game! I know I should be a hero and give the lonely and unloved a place to make an ass of themselves but I haven't got the time so like always if you see any droppings from Bob let it go and I will take care of them on sight. Go Cornhuskers
Nebraska is coming off a tough emotional win last week.
Back to back road games
Michigan has a QB that is built to give Nebraska fits
And last but not least Michigan is pretty damn good.
And yet I am not willing to write off this game by a long shot. Should be a fun game
BTW If you notice the posts from a lonely little troll it's just Bob looking for somebody to be his friend. Don't respond I'll erase them on sight.
The most surreal game I can ever imagine taking part in. Surreal on so many levels. Nobody knows how the crowd will react. Nobody knows what the scene will be like. nobody knows if anybody will do anything crazy. There are many people who called for this game to be canceled but it wasn't. obviously I hope Nebraska wins but This is one football game that is truly dwarfed by it's circumstances. In place of the typical post with the helmets I have placed a RAINN ribbon. I will give RAINN $1 dollar for every point scored with a Minimum of $50.
I could write a summary on why my San Diego Chargers lost 24-17 tonight to the archival Oakland Raiders and make the case that there's still a chance for them in the AFC Worst West. I could bitch that Ed Hoculi is still one of the worst active referees in the game (though he did call a somewhat fair game tonight), and I could put my aim at Vincent Jackson for not going up to get that ball Phillip Rivers launched into the endzone late in the 4th Quarter, but frankly, i'm just tired at this point.
I'm tired of wondering why Rivers - who's been excellent the last three seasons - is leading the league in interceptions.
I'm tired of hearing Norv Turner's "aw shucks, we'll get 'em next time" press conferences.
I'm tired of hearing how the team is going to get better.
The harsh truth was made clear tonight for me: this simply isn't a good team - an elite team - anymore.
The window, thanks to injuries, poor drafting in previous years, and a slow regression even since A.J. Smith fired Marty Schottenheimer in 2007 and brought in Turner that same year, is closed for my Chargers.
Now is the time for San Diego to to make a fundamental decision: are they going to go the way of the Dan Foust-era - great offensive air attack, little to no defense, and no championships to show for it, or will Dean Spanos come to his senses, see that his team is on a fast-tack downhill and start to make the necessary changes to salvage what still can be a championship football organization?
Don't buy it. Conservatives honor women much more than liberals. In
fact, conservatives are much more honorable people in general than
liberals. Just take a look at the crowd at a Democratic
convention--they look like slobs and drug addicts. One of the main
tenets of liberals these days is more handouts from the government, and
conservatives are conversely hardworking and self-sufficient people.
Also, the liberals are always the ones trash-talking conservatives
online. Just check it for yourselves. And sometimes I get tired of it
and have to go online and defend the honorable ones...although the
character of good people speaks for itself regardless of the horrible,
twisted things people say. Done trying to speak logic here, it is not
No one forces anyone into being a human incubator. Get real. That is a
choice each person makes. I don't believe anything that strips away
human rights, except when those rights infringe on other human rights.
And human rights should apply to all humans, born and unborn.
Again, there are hypocrites out there. I have never said that all
conservatives are right, just conservative principles. And if saying
that unborn people should have rights too is a blanketed statement, then
I will specify and say they should not be harmed in any way, just as
you would not want to be harmed if it were you. And where did you get
the idea that people with wrong ideas could not serve honorably in the
military? I served honorably in the Army, not that it is a validation
of my beliefs.
Saint Joe Paterno retired today as a horrid sex scandal brings down Penn State University. Joe for is part wasn't a part of the act of raping 10 year old boys himself but he did almost nothing to bring it to the attention of the authorities. The question now is does Saint Joe survive the rest of the year before he retires? 1000's of idiot Penn State students marched on his lawn in support of the coach sending the message loud and clear that pedophilia is fine and dandy at their college as long as they're winning games. Now we know what becomes of the children of people like Blackflon and his little Iowa buddy they go to Penn State and cheer on enablers to unspeakable acts. As somebody who never did think Joe Paterno was all that damned classy to begin with as horrible as I feel for the victims, the real victims not Joe, I am enjoying just a little the vindication. Even though I never thought Joe was half the hero he snookered others into believing he was even I didn't think he was this much a choad.
Update: Joe Paterno is out as head coach of Penn State University.
With all the support the child rapists apologists are getting tonight at Penn State you should rename it Blackflon University.
Northwestern had lost 5 games in a row before beating Sad sack Indiana
last week 59-38 and yet they are seen as a bit of a "live" dog in
today's game with Nebraska. Is the fear in some Nebraska fans hearts
that this could be a much tougher game than expected real or imagined?
Let's take a look at both sides of the argument.
Reasons this could be a tough game for Nebraska:
has an explosive spread offense that gives the defense all sorts of
quirky looks and depends upon a mobile QB who can also pass well. Dan
Persa is just that sort of QB. he's fast with his feet and accurate with
his arm. He's the kind of QB and this is the kind of offense that
traditionally has given gives Nebraska defenses fits. The back up QB
Kain Coulter is an offensive playmaker at 3 different positions. QB, RB
Northwestern is well coached and seldom loses a game
badly. This is true. Northwestern doesn't lose 58-10. They usually hang
tough and fail to have enough man power to get the job done in the 4th
Reasons This Could Be An Easy Nebraska Win:
is NOT as mobile as he was last year before he got hurt and Coulter can
not throw the football. A QB who can't do both well is much easier for
Nebraska to defend.
Nebraska's defense which was shockingly in
adequate for much of the season has looked like the defense that was
expected the last 2 1/2 games. Ohio State, Minnesota and Michigan State
are not Northwestern on offense but they aren't bad either and in the
last 10 quarters of football those teams got almost nothing on offense
against Nebraska's main players
Northwestern's defense is more
bad than their offense is good. This is a biggie. Northwestern's defense
is just brutal and not in a good way. Last week against sorry Indiana
they gave up 38 points and over 400 yards. They haven't stopped anybody.
they play hard, yes they are well coached but overall Northwestern just
isn't very good. OK there were tough loses to Michigan, Iowa and Penn
State in that 5 game stretch where Northwestern hung in the game until
the 4th quarter but there was also a loss to Army!...Army! It would
take the kind of performance from Northwestern that they haven't shown
all year. Are they capable of such a performance?
What Do I Think Will Happen
am one of those people who saw this game as a nightmare style for
Nebraska and one in which they would be tested and challenged all game
long. The combinations of factors I have touched on, mainly Nebraska's
improving defense and Northwestern's terrible defense leads me to think
this game will not be as close as first feared. Northwestern will have
their moments and put some points on the board. They are just too good
offensively not to. But Nebraska will have many more moments and many
more points. I see this in the neighborhood of 52-24 for Nebraska.
