    Yeah, it’s funny how Big Dog defends our receivers and then turns around and talks injuries and inconsistency. Is he just stirring the pot?

  2. DallasBuc Says:

    “As far as that’s concerned”

  3. tmaxcon Says:

    There is no defense of the receivers. its weak group after evans and vjax and even vjax has questions… all i see is hope this and hope that after evans . . Depending and hoping a career bum like murphy finally gets it and stays healthy is a gamble no sane person would buy into. murphy at 4 or 5 much less 3 based on his history is a pipe dream… gator fans excluded obviously

  4. THETRUTH Says:

    Tmaxcon: what questions do you ha e in VJAX look at numbers when they drop than we can question but he still produces. Murphy jury out of he starts healthy but we need a solid healthy treat at the 3

  5. tmaxcon Says:

    What guestions about vjax let’s start with age and the fact he missed half the season with 2 knee injuries last year… i love vjax but the reality is if he goes down bucs are screwed. murphy is a situational #5 at best go look up his career stats he has never been a 3 and coming off an ACL injury at his age and not being ready for training camp pretty much explains that.

    Tmax is right.

    That’s why I have more than hope for Kenny Bell. I have confidence.

  7. Buc1987 Says:

    Not as a 2 quite yet though…

  8. Buc1987 Says:

    Kenny Bell broke Irving Fryers records at Nebraska Joe.

  9. tmaxcon Says:

    I am pulling big time for bell. Best hair in a decade lets hope when 5he pads cone on he shines

  10. Joe Says:

    Kenny Bell broke Irving Fryers records at Nebraska Joe.

    You are aware what type of offense Nebraska ran when Irving Fryar played for Nebraska, right? You know, the wishbone?

    If the Cornhuskers threw the ball 15 times a game, the locals would think Tom Osborne was turning Commie on them.

  11. tmaxcon Says:


    nebraska fans from that era would think dungy offenses were pass happy

  12. Joe Says:

    nebraska fans from that era would think dungy offenses were pass happy

    Yup. But their cornfed linemen were so good and their running backs so explosive they often averaged like eight yards a carry. Roger Craig, Tom Rathman, Tommie Frazier, scumbag Larry Phillips, those guys were insane.

  13. tmaxcon Says:

    I was living in boulder Colorado for a couple years late 80’s loved watching nebraska beating up on buffaloes… hated nebraska but hated cu more. Wore my UM gear to folsom field every week..

  14. tmaxcon Says:

    Was at the game in 90’s when um players messed with ralphy the bull

  15. Joe Says:

    UM = Michigan?

  16. Guzzie Says:

    In JAMEIS WE TRUST he will bring us to the promise land, and I’m a life long GATOR fan who hates Winston go bucs

  17. Joe Says:


    Nebraska from a football standpoint royally f’ed up going to the Big Ten. At first, they played Michigan, Ohio State and Penn State. Was a great move.

    Now they are marooned in a division with Iowa, Minnesota and Northwestern, et al. Shame what has become of them.

  18. Joe Says:


    Always preferred Nebraska over Oklahoma. When a kid, remember well Billy Sims. Now that was beautiful football. Thomas Lott or J.C. Watts would pitch to Sims and — poof! — off to the races.

    Yes, Bo Jackson and maybe Hershel Walker were better but those guys were more bruisers. Sims ran like he was gliding down the field with those huge strides and then juke people out of their jocks. Work of art man.

  19. tmaxcon Says:

    I shouls have said THE U…. I dint recognize anything Michigan lol…. Nebraska was dominant fun to watch. I miss the days of independent programs like Penn State, THE U, FSU, notre dame going on the road and disrupting the big conference teams. Sims was a joy to watch run. Not a fan of anything OK….

  20. Joe Says:

    Yeah tmaxon, those independents like Notre Dame, FSU, U, Penn State, BYU in the day, those teams had to play powerhouse schedules or they wouldn’t get into decent bowls.

  21. SB with Jameis Says:

    I am loving the whole Nebraska, tmax, Joe thing right now. Can we get more!!!!!?

  22. tmaxcon Says:

    SB with Jameis

    I truly believe that was some of best college football we’ve witnessed… you had the tom Osborne choirboys versus the miami bad boys mixed with the blue collar nitnay lions all facing the golden domers… every week a powerhouse played a powerhouse. The way the conferences are today its Watered down in my opinion. But what do i know just an old grumpy guy.

  23. Chris Says:

    Don’t forget Marcus Dupree, he could have been great

  24. Strider ....Sec 147 Says:

    I believe in bell he looks like he can play

  25. Lunchbox Says:

    Yeah, why not give Bell a chance to show what he can do? The way you talk about him, Joe, you’d think he ran over your dog or something. I understand all he’s done has just been training camp stuff due to injury, but it’s like you refuse to believe he has any potential at all. Geez take it easy on the guy.

  26. Buc1987 Says:

    @Joe…Yes I know the offenses they ran. I also know they traditionally run the ball a lot still to this day. I’m not the one that mentioned Fryer as a “pretty damned good WR” from Nebraska.

    I am the one that mentioned that Bell broke the records of that “pretty damned good WR.” I also know that Bell didn’t have that many receptions himself to begin with. Yet he did break Fryer’s records. It did happen.

    I get your point about the wishbone though, but it did happen.

  27. Buc1987 Says:

    I also think Kenny Bell had a target on his back the day you found out that Licht’s dad basically made the pick.

    Just a thought.
