They have time it takes to exit the stadium and quality of restrooms listed twice under things to be improved. So folks are apparently spending a lot of time in the John and leaving early. Legit.

As bad as they have been they have reason to leave early.

And it has often been noted that Nebraska fans tend to be full of ****!

Picking on nebraskas basketball program feels wrong, somehow. It’s like picking on the Special Olympics athletes.
Wrong,

people naturally pull for Special Olympics athletes and they and their fans are likable.

And the Special Olympic athletes don't choose to have their disabilities, Nebraska athletes choose to go there.

Considering that who are the one who are truly intellectually challenged.

Sorry to sidetrack this fun “bag on Nebraska-a-thon”, but why is using the term “intellectually challenged” to make fun of someone for doing something stupid…when that’s the actual socially accepted term, but saying “retarded” is a no no when the actual definition is “very stupid or foolish” and general public doesn’t accept that term for intellectually challenged individuals?

Certain words carry connotations. I had a little sister who had Down's Syndrome, She loved participating in Special Olympics.

At this time Intellectually challenged doesn't carry negative connotations. Retarded used to be looked at the same way as Intellectually Challenged. The ARC was an acronym for Association for Retarded Citizens, before that it was Association for Retarded Children. Then the word retarded because used as an insult, prejudicial.

The word retarded at that time was used in place of the word moron which had been the preferred term in legal and medical circles until it became seen as an insult due to usage.

There are many descriptive terms that have changed in connotation over the years. Think about the terms used to describe certain racial groups that were once acceptable or even preferable to the insulting terms of the times. Over time some of those terms have changed from acceptable to career ending.

I guess I got all that. But you weren’t using “intellectually challenged” literally, it was in the context of someone just doing something stupid…like going to Nebraska. Ergo, just asking why it’s ok to make fun of someone for wanting to go to Nebraska by calling them Intellectually Challenged seems more awkward (since that’s the actual term) than “retarded” which actually had a dictionary meaning that doesn’t mean “intellectually challenged”.
Now…back to our regularly scheduled program of bagging on Nebraska.

Didn't they spend a fortune on a new arena & coaching changes, though? That's what makes it funny.
While we're on the subject of new NU coaches and bathrooms......you guys see who their new OC is?

Wilner just secured eternal popularity with Buffs fans.

From his newsletter today discussing MBB HC salaries in the Pac-12 and how they compare nationally:


For the sake of comparison ...
Consider that Altman, Cronin and Enfield are the only Pac-12 coaches above the $3 million mark and the only Pac-12 coaches who ranked in the top 35 nationally in compensation.
Meanwhile, 11 coaches in the SEC earned more than $3 million this season, while 10 in the Big Ten hit that mark and six in the Big 12 did the same.
Heck, three schools that don't even play major college football paid their coaches more than $3 million annually: Villanova, Providence and Nebraska.

The crack at NU is funny, but Duke would've actually been a better data point for the argument he's trying to make.

I have T-Mobile, and I get coverage here in Omaha. It’s probably due to being nearby to Council Bluffs.
Yeah, it looks like there is some bleed over cellular access for the support they are trying to give Iowa, Kansas, and South Dakota. (y)
