Re: Stupid Nebraska player

Ahem...'Stupid' Nebraska Player? Is there any other kind?

Is a paradigm worth 20 cents?

Re: Stupid Nebraska player

I'm an NU fan, but that sort of crap has no place on the field. He needs to be suspended...at the very least. Nothing like making the school look like a bunch of thugs al la Miami a few years ago.

My hat is off to you, Tiger. Mizzou played a whopper of a game. First win over the Cornhuskers since 1978...no small accomplishment.

Thanks. They couldn't have done it without me.

Seriously, it was so awesome. Standing there in the rain, feeling that this *might* finally be the year, then it actually happened. The last 5 minutes I think they lost about 30 yards! It helps make up for some of the past sports disappointments:

5th down game v. Colorado (Colorado goes on to National Championship)

Kicked ball by Nebraska (Nebraska goes on to National Championship)

Tyus Edney goes the length of the floor for UCLA in 4 seconds (UCLA goes on to win National Championship)

Is a paradigm worth 20 cents?

Re: Stupid Nebraska player

You were there? Cool!

Ironically enough, the last time Mizzou beat us, I was at the game. It was in Lincoln in 1978 on a terribly cold Saturday, the week after we'd finally beaten our nemesis, Oklahoma.

James Wilder and Kellen Winslow ran wild that day.

Re: Stupid Nebraska player

Yep, season tickets for football. I was at the 5th down game and the kicked ball game too.

Re: Stupid Nebraska player

God, that one had to suck for you guys. Even I shook my head and said we didn't earn it.

Another note on the one-punch boxing match. One of the local sportswriters in Omaha, Tom Shatel, is editorializing on the event, trying to mitigate the NU player's actions.

Thought provoking, perhaps.

Re: Stupid Nebraska player

Did the player really think the guy was going to assault him? Yeah, the fans were excited and taunting the players, but that's got to be expected. The player was mad and he acted out. Understandable, but not justifiable.

Re: Stupid Nebraska player

Thought provoking, yes. But........let's say some guys are having a 'guy's night out'. They are at one of the local bars, and when they go to leave another young man outside on the sidewalk approaches them, pointing his finger at one of the guys and calling him a loser. Said guy knocks the taunter cold, blackening his eye. Let's say the taunter is a good 80 lbs. lighter and in nowhere near the physical condition of the puncher.
Whom do you take to jail?

Swinging the first puch at a guy much smaller than you while you are wearing protective gear does not self defense make.
This was simply an act of aggression by a player that was getting taunted after losing an emotional game. No self defense involved. Stupid on the part of the taunter, yes.
The guy shouldn't be playing the remainder of the year. He should have chargse brought against him, and serve some type of punishment - whether it be anger management classes (which I personally think are BS) or community service.

Oh, and you can pretty much count on Nebraska's football account getting lighter.

Re: Stupid Nebraska player

I agree with a one-game suspension, but I think that's enough. And I hate Nebraska.

Crap. As a cop you Chain know better than I, just because I shake a finger at someone, doesn't mean I'm physically assaulting them.

And when it's a fan and player, that's worse.

I hate to say it but, imo, the fan was stupid, got a bit of what he deserved, the player was punished, let's move on...
