You people come out like clockwork and say the same thing when swingman gives us links. If you read the description you'd see that swingman is posting in the right spot.Agreed I though this was Gopherhole not NCAA news hole
I thought the issue was more that everyone else caught up. They can be absolutely higher while still relatively much lower compared to their competition measured using an independently valid metricLet's say their strength index numbers are better ... than when Nebraska was good... wouldn't that just kinda raise the question about how useful these numbers are?
It's Nebraska, they're very focused on the pastNot sure what is really gained by comparing current strength and conditioning numbers with historic totals. S&C has advanced a ton over time and players start training at a much younger age.
I mean in football there is really no comparison between the athletes of today with those from the past because players today are so much bigger and stronger in general.
Yep, count me among those that doesn't mind all these various threads with news from around the Big Ten, especially during the off season when things are slow anyway.The single thread idea would only work from a usability standpoint if the mods gave Swingman his own locked thread only he could post to, and then that sort of ruins the discussion this board is supposed to be about.
(otherwise it would be chaos with a bunch of disparate topics being discussed in one thread)
This quote from the story kind of emphasizes that point:It's Nebraska, they're very focused on the past
100% agree. Some boards are militant about keeping comments in a finite number of threads. You go on there and see the same five topic titles and it feels so old and stale and dusty and unwelcoming. Different threads! More threads!Yep, count me among those that doesn't mind all these various threads with news from around the Big Ten, especially during the off season when things are slow anyway.
I actually think it is better to have them each as their own topic as opposed to one big thread because that way you only have to click on it if you are interested in it.
