    Can't believe the Lincoln Urinal Star ....

    Through the weekend they attempted to break down the best 5 players at most position spots. Naive as I am, I thought that Husker writers would be knowledgeable enough about football to recognize talent and give the talent their due. NOT SO!

    I was SHOCKED when ISU's ARob didn't make the B12 top 5 at RB. I was similarly shocked when Sims didn't make the Big12 top 5 in the secondary.

    Sorry ... I had to vent. I guess I should just prepare myself for similar crap once Nebraska is "officially" in the Big 10.

    The Husker Board and the Hawkeye Boards are both filled with fans measuring themselves to see who will wear the biggest hat in the western B10. Never have two fan bases deserved each other more than the SUI and Nub fan bases.

    I still think that 10 years from now that the B12 will still be the drastically better football conference and that especially Nebraska will still be a total non-factor in basketball. I think that Bo is certainly the ugliest coach in America and maybe the craziest coach in America and I am not convinced that he will be successful long term.

    We have to win the games to make their predictions false..... We just can't complain about a little bad press from foreign newspapers playing to the local base and make any points.

    I haven't even read the article but I bet BOTH Roy Helu and Rex Burkhead were in there.

    I'm not going to click on the link, but I'm guessing that the 3 deep at NU made up the first 3/5 of each position.

    weren't they both all big 12 last season? i know that this is just an opinion by some knownothing writer but still. to not put 2 all bit 12 performers within the top 5 returning players at their position is pretty naive.

    oh well

    Re: Can't believe the Lincoln Urinal Star ....

    Not gonna click on the link either. I've noticed that we're getting even less respect this year from Husker writers than ever before. I'm guessing last years loss to us in Lincoln (making it even worse for them) just isn't sitting well. Poor babies.


    Never argue with an idiot. They will bring you down to their level and then beat you with experience.

    They had Helu on it, but not Burkhead. Of course, when they discussed Helu ... they used some of the space to "talk-up" Burkhead though.

    Their top 5 at RB was:

    1. Daniel Thomas
    2. DeMarco Murray
    3. Kendall Hunter
    4. Roy Helu
    5. Christine Michael

    As for the top 5 in the secondary, they included both Amukamara and Hagg. There's no way that Hagg deserves to be ahead of Sims.

    And the Austin Statesman would just list the Horn Aggies entire depth chart

    Stick to the Omaha "Weird Harold" (World Herald). They are knowledgeable and actually better at covering ISU than the Register.

    Christine? Do we now have a female RB to match that former Colorado kicker??

    Re: Can't believe the Lincoln Urinal Star ....

    I probably would have put Arob at 4/5th since it's pretty much a toss up between him and Helu. I wouldn't have put Hagg on there but I'm not sure I would put Sims on there with all the other good secondary players around the league. The paper wasn't purposely hating on you guys though.
