What seems to be tops on your list???

Some play sports, some workout, some watch TV and movies, some play computer/console games, and some read books.  Hopefully everyone works (or is still in school) and these are things done as hobbies or other actions during the day.  You can rank these on what is more important to do than some of the others, but I want to look into one of them for now.  Playing computer/console games, and what might happen when things get uncontrollable.

Here is a video of a girlfriend taking control of what her boyfriend seems to have as one of the tops on his list, a game called World of Warcraft played on his computer.

My thinking can’t comprehend how much time that guy wasted on that video game.  It seems these days that I am starting to pull more towards that than any other way.  I told one of my friends that playing video games all the time was a waste of time and those people need to get a life.  He was one of those and thought that we might be friends anymore. I corrected him and said if that was all you did and nothing else, then it was a problem.  When I was in high school, it was all about Halo and a little bit of H2, and then in College it was NCAA football.  I definitely played a good chuck, so I can’t say to much to those that are in the college/high school lifestyle.  If the games are taking away from your time with God, with school work, and with family and friends, then it might be too much.  If you are like that guy and possibly play games for up to 6 or more hours a day, then there might be a problem.  Just saying…

Blaming who?

If you are going to blame one person on the Nebraska football team, you better just blame them all, every single one of them and the coaches too.  There should be one singling out on one person totally screwing the win up for the team.  It was a team effort and a team failure.  I would like to see a lot of you who are complaining and crying over someone’s bad choice of action, to get in there and try it out for yourself.  I am pretty sure not to many people can play at their level, so let’s give them a break and hope they learn from this lession, which I am pretty sure they will do…

I hope Bo see more in the football game than just this, and think he does, he just wants to motivate the players…

Added Pelini: “We did some good things; a lot that we need to get fixed. In the end, we didn’t make the play. I don’t measure on yards or how we play. You’ve got to win the football game. We didn’t win the football game so we didn’t play good enough in any phase of the game. I measure it on results. That’s how we measure things around here.”

The schedule is served

In non-conference play, three out of the four teams are from a lower level division and not really someone that would attract much attention to their play or the game.  I still say both FAU and ASU gave us some problem area’s to work on and challenged us in some others. Why are we playing low level team instead of another BCS great?

Some fans are asking this question, rather wanting the good ole days where high level ranked teams would go head to head to see who was the best.  Trying to play up to someone’s level instead of playing down to another’s.  If anyone looks at our Conference Schedule, you will see it ususally is based with some pretty good teams that could change the final letter either way, and much of Nebraska’s focus needs to be on those teams.  Yes, it would be awesome to see a NU vs. ND,  a NU vs. LSU, or a NU vs. PSU, but with how the money issue and home field advantage has started to decrease the potiental of getting high profile teams to play in our none-conference games, we get the fortune of being able to play those “so-called” “lower-level” football teams.  It definitely helped Nebraska see where they need to improve before actually playing the big boys.

Shatel: November time for big games

It’s big-game week here in God’s country, but elsewhere they are wondering how to liven up September. Esteemed colleague Blair Kerkhoff of the Kansas City Star opines that the Big 12 should consider playing more conference games in September — such as this week’s game matching Texas Tech and Texas — à la the Southeastern and Atlantic Coast. The thinking is that it makes the Big 12 more attractive to TV networks.

I’m all for that — if I don’t have to give up my conference games in November. To see Nebraska play Louisiana-Lafayette between games with Oklahoma and Kansas would be an absolute momentum-killer. Don’t mess with my conference schedule; I want the league dramas to build each week toward a Thanksgiving crescendo. To me, that’s college football. Now, if the Big 12 athletic directors would like to knock off one of the meaningless nonconference games and replace it with a ninth conference game, I’m all for it. But that won’t happen. Too many Big 12 schools need the seven home games. For NU, that’s nearly $5 million a home game.

too funny…

In an interview on Thursday, Coach Bo Palini was asked a lot of questions pertaining to the game on Saturday against FAU.  Here are two questions and answers that made me laugh pretty hard:

Reporter:  “Aside from obviously losing, what is your biggest fear that you worry about or that you sweat over the night before the game the most?”

Bo:  “I get kicked out of the game… then I am in  trouble at home.”

Reporter: “Wish you could still play the game?”

Bo: “I do… glad I can’t though because we probably wouldn’t win the game”
