“We love our coach, but you have to create plays for the players you have. They needed to make their tackles. We are happy for you guys, but you have to understand that this was not the Nebraska of old. We’re rebuilding.”

“We had zero running game. Our offensive line couldn’t give the quarterback time to throw or any holes to run the ball through.”

“Execution. They didn’t seem to have their heart in it. They started too slow and just couldn’t get going.”

“Nebraska got their butts beat. That’s what went wrong, and I hope it’s another 38 years before they beat us again.”

This question sucks. Our team played great yesterday and that's why we won. Period.

Anyone have a close up of the scoreboard? It would make a great desktop wallpaper

I think they forgot to brush their teeth yesterday morning. Makes a big difference in how the rest of your day goes!

Might I suggest remedial driver's ed for those of you apparently incapable of driving in anything but a straight line?

They didn't score enough points.........

linux_chick Thanks for posting the pics yesterday!

I agree we won the battle. We were the better team yesterday! (we also know where all the roundabouts are)

l_eustacy 12 years, 6 months ago

I think they were dizzy from the roundabouts.

The finest example of stupidity is on the new section of Folks road, between Harvard and Sixth street. both a speed bump and the semi-roundabout. Is snow removal possible here? Only with a shovel - idiots!

Now some idiot has added two-foot boulders to the edge of the curb, next to one of the roundabouts on Harvard.

This all gives the ambulance-chasers who advertise on TV hope though. Wait till the streets are slick and real people have to navigate these unnecessary obstacle courses.

It is all so embarrassing. I had guests from another city last weekend and they asked if our city planner was an ignorant hillbilly.

linux_chick 12 years, 6 months ago

No problem, killjoy. I'm glad you enjoyed them. If anyone else got some pics, you should post a link here, too. I'd love to see.

Yes. This question seems to be worded in such a way that it's kind of deflating of our victory... when our team left no doubt about who dominated.

obviously, the transdimensional wave force had shifted thus disrupting the Nebraska life essence.

KU played much better.


better question for OTS today: Why should Breazedale be considered as an historic district?

yourworstnightmare 12 years, 6 months ago

I have one word for all of you giddy KU fans: Bucknell.

bearded_gnome 12 years, 6 months ago

E_M, yeah, and nobody celebrates 'orange' 'aqua' or "jungle" [from the old crayon can't get "jungle" anymore! and if you could, you'd have to call it "rainforest.]

"I'm Mr. Blue." sing along...or not.

Off the subject--I would like to thank the people that demonstrate downtown for Peace!

I bet they now how to drive in a roundabout!

Purell 12 years, 6 months ago

I'd like to thank anyone who demonstrates against Lawrence roundabouts.

I don't think roundabouts are inherently bad. I think that they've benn used horribly in Lawrence.

killjoy 12 years, 6 months ago

Where's the first meeting to protest the roundabouts? I have some good ideas!

Jayhawk226 12 years, 6 months ago

Bucknell will become a part of the KU history after they win 3 straight national titles.

Let the dynasty begin.

METALQ2 12 years, 6 months ago

Hey, if our roundabouts get worn out we can replace them with Nebraska offensive line

bankboy119 12 years, 6 months ago

Bucknell has nothing to do with football genius.

I don't care what went wrong, I'm just happy KU won. Another bonus for you Jayhawk fans -- Touchdown Tuesdays at the Kansas Union Bookstores -- 5% off for each touchdown KU scored the previous Saturday. Should be some good shopping deals. Personally, I never buy there unless there is a big discount because they are so expensive, but they have some really nice Hawk "stuff."

Looking through the posts it appears someone has a lot of time (and personalities) on their hands today :) Not saying that's a bad thing, unless they start arguing with themselves and then it get just plain wierd :-P

btw, Hannibal, Paris? Did you enjoy the French cuisine? (No menu details are necessary :)


bearded_gnome 12 years, 6 months ago

'evening Ceallach.
note: you just passed #800posts!


bearded_gnome 12 years, 6 months ago

Hannibal, I'm just glad you're back; I hate to think of you having to eat so much fast food on the road.

night all.
