Why would you change the eye black

Posted in Sports world with tags , , , , , , , on April 20, 2010 by rylanreed

I understand some of the rulings that the NCAA put down this past week for the next couple years of football, but why ban eye black that has words on them… isn’t that like freedom of speech kind of thing? I mean, it’s not distracting the other players on the opposing team, and if it is, they need to work on that themselves…

Ready for the playoffs

Posted in Sports world, Video with tags , , , , , , , on April 17, 2010 by rylanreed

I was watching the NBA a couple of weeks ago with some friends of mine and a commercial came on for the playoffs.  One of my friends commented on why the NBA was trying to make things seem like they were gangsta when they didn’t want their players acting like that at all.  I thought it was a funny way of looking at the commercial, but either way you look at it, its catchy…

here are a few more videos like the one above…

Baseball

I am the feeling on the ball after it has left your hand

I am the feeling the player has as his ball goes flying over the fence

I am the piece of string in your glove

I am the Ball

I am the holder of the ball

I am the feeling on your glove as it grabs the ball

I am the one digging for the ball

I am the Glove

I am the one diving for the ball

I am the one giving it my all to reach first

I am the one sliding to the bag

I am the one jumping and reaching over the fence as I snag the homerun

I am the one leaving the field with grass stains on my pants

I am the Player

I am the Hat and the sweat on it

I am the marvelous game of Baseball

Rest in Peace buddy! May God bless those that knew you!

Blaming who?

Posted in Sports world with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 21, 2009 by rylanreed

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.”

Why redshirting?

Posted in Sports world with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 13, 2009 by rylanreed

Why is red-shirting some players good for the team and for the player it self and why should you not red-shirt player in different situations.

Compton redshirted as a freshman, but there were several times when he nearly saw the field.

During NU’s game against Virginia Tech, Ekeler came running down the sideline looking for Compton.

“Get ready to rock and roll! You’re going in!” Ekeler told him.

Head coach Bo Pelini also told Compton to get ready, but he soon changed his mind and said it would be a poor decision to burn the redshirt. In hindsight, Compton admits sitting out was the right choice.

“I was nowhere close to where I am now,” Compton said. “It’s an awesome thing to redshirt. You get a year of learning and getting a feel for the game instead of being thrown into the fire.” (Daily Nebraskan)

Here is a little about Josh Williams, Nick Rubek is asking the questions and wrote this article:

Q: What’s the toughest part of redshirting?

A: Just sitting out. I came in and wanted to be in the game. But actually just sitting out and watching guys, that’s probably the toughest part. I think the best part about it was just being able to develop myself to be ready to play college football.

Q: When you look back at it now, do you think a year ago at this time you would have been ready to play?

A: No, I don’t think so. I don’t think I would have been able to do it.  Nick Rubek

With a shake, comes the fist

Posted in Sports world, Video with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 5, 2009 by rylanreed

I just found out about the Oregon – Boise State game and the punch at the end.  Both Players shouldn’t have done what they did, but I have to say that I did laugh a little bit when watching it.  Not to say that we should be praising either players on either teams, since they are role models for everyone that is younger and wanting to be in their shoes someday.  Here are some good links about what happened and what Tom Shatel has to say about the incident and what will happen tonight.

Listening to who knows what

Posted in Sports world with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on August 28, 2009 by rylanreed

I wanted to put these on here for those that like to listen to the coaches and players talk after practice.  Bo and Carl Pelini, as well as Larry Asante.  Much like what you have read about this past week from football camp at Nebraska, but from another side, Pod-casting.  Oh, and lets go Husker Volleyball in their first match tonight at the Qwest Center, Omaha Nebraska!
