Re: Nebraska Football 2017

Just a thought... I've heard many names for our next coach throughout the season. They all run the spread offense, which is the opposite of what the fan base would like to see. We/they want to see ground and pound run offense that we had back in the day and that Wisconsin runs now. I just want to ma...

It's not like that particular area is actually lacking in public transportation. The 2, 3, and 15 are among the best and most used routes Metro has. People just have to open their eyes. Standing at 40th and Farnam, you'd see 15 different buses in an hour.

They are just expanding I-680 in both directions to three lanes between Fort and the Irvington exit. Do you think that'll help? I thought the problem was backup from the light to get on 133. Only way to really solve that is to put in a flyover or a loop, neither of which there is really enough room...
