    I liked it until he said no expletives.

    If I cant swear, how will the refs know how I feel about them?

    They profile a picture of Nebraska's new venue? Those sorry-*** mbb fans with Creighton T-shirts worn under their Walmart Nebbie shirts?

    Maybe in the past. Nebraska had quite the environment for games this year.

    Outlawing Sweet Caroline? Get rid of this guy.

    And also, I'm not the best with acoustics, but if you had the students in a ten row ring around the stadium as opposed to the two ends, wouldn't that make the noise dissipate as opposed to being louder in a concentrated area? Edit: this would be under the assumption that the student section is the only one making noise, as is somewhat implied.

    Having a ten row ring of students would make the old people have to stand more, and we know that old people can only stand for so long.

    Their facility is top notch. If Miles stays there, he could be the Johnny Orr of NI basketball.

    Nebraska has not won any game in the NCAA tournament -- ever. Repeat that to yourself a few times and see if what you contend still makes sense.

    Possible ... although it's a relative comparison.

    Admittedly, I clicked on this one, but ESPN can go **** itself for acting like these writers are writing freely.

    Prior to Johnny, ISU had gone 40 years without an NCAA appearance. In the 2 appearances they had up to 1944, they were 1-2. So ISU was 1-2 in the NCAA tournament prior to Johnny coming to Ames. With the exception of the Gary Thompson years, ISU spent almost 4 decades playing pretty bad basketball, finishing in the bottom half of the conference (Big 6, Big 7, then Big 8) most of the time.

    In his 14 years at ISU, he made it to the NCAAs 6 times and won 3 of those games (two in the 85-86 season and one in the 91-92 season). He only finished in the top half of the conference 3 times (t-3rd in 84-85, 2nd in 85-86, t-2nd in 92-93) and he never won a Big 8 tournament. What Johnny did do was beat the big boys in Hilton. We played terrible on the road and lost to some bad teams, but we owned Hilton. His overall winning pct was 0.522, and his conf winning pct was 0.403. But he created excitement and demand by winning at home.

    You think it would be impossible to do the same at Nebraska in today's Big 10?


    You can spend a lot of time and money picking out the perfect floral bouquet for your date ... but you're probably better off checking if you have bad breath and taking the porn out of the glove compartment.

    The moral: you gain more by not being stupid, than you do by being smart. Smart gets neutralized by other smart people. Stupid does not.

    I'd probably start by getting rid of the AAU system.

    That Sweet Caroline comment had to be directed at us. I can't think of too many schools who play Sweet Caroline regularly like we do..but I love it! (unless we are losing..looking at you Jack Trice music person!)
