Matt:

I really have no criticism...with the exception of the 'Slingblade' crap and the 'Qwest is Creighton's' campaign. I think if we saw a balanced critique of NU, we would be okay. Calling players (who happen to play hard) midgets is really out of line. Comparing our coach to a matricidal retard is out of line.

I know you do not consider yourself a journalist. I get that. I also get that you do things to stir the pot. But you do that on a station that bills itself as sports without the spin. I think you are too woven into the web of Bluejay basketball to do anything but spin when it comes to NU Basketball.

Do we draw the same numbers as Creighton? Hell no. But it was not long ago that my cookouts could outdraw a Creighton game. Dana and Creighton rolled up their sleeves and put in the work. And they did not kiss NU ass in doing it. Now NU is in the process of rebuilding their program and I do not think we need to kiss CU's ass in doing it.

Was Doc being disrespectful for answering a media question regarding the 16k at a CU game? I really think you are taking that entirely out of context, whether you admit that or not. When you read the entire article, and his other quotes, in context, I think you can come away with the impression that he is commending Creighton for what they have done. Regarding his comment that Oregon is the best opponent to come into Qwest.....name a better one. Maybe at the end of the season, with the benefit of hindsight, you are right. However, from where things are when Doc made that statement, he is right. Oregon was an elite eight team and came in with the #16 ranking.

Again Matt, I think that you are really too entrenched in all that is Creighton to be objective.

I will continue to listen and occassionally call. However, I do not feel that you are sports without the spin when it comes to either CU or NU basketball.

You still suck matt

Red Sox Fan said...

Shouldn't you be watching the Big Lebowski or something and no reading the internet?

mpluvcreighton said...

Someone has to keep you in line.

mattiscool said...

You really do still suck matt

sublime_fan27 said...

Matt,

Don't you mean "noT reading the internet"? Doesn't suprise me.

magic said...

Give him a break. He's just a "Talk show host" not a Journalist remember

Red Sox Fan said...

you can't edit your comments on here...no spell check...seriously, you are worried about typos? Go look at Tebow's women and stop being one.

beav said...

We can get along when you get a clue. Making comments like "Nebraska basketball is a joke" and the the program has "sucked" will not make many friends around here. Tim Tebow's woman is nice to look at, but it doesn't change the fact that you have lost all objectivity towards Nebraska basketball. Get a clue dude.

The Dude said...

matt you tool. Thats not Tebow's girlfriend.

beav,

Not to be a Debbie Downer, but to an outsider's perspective (like Matt's), how can one be objective towards Nebraska basketball? They've never done anything of substance, ever. That doesn't mean that Doc can't/won't turn the program around, he very well might, who knows. But, people aren't obligated to kiss the Husker program's butt just because it's THE state university. You want more objectivity? WIN. Better yet, win on the road - then you'll get the respect you think this program deserves.

I think it's comical that Husker fans pile on Matt just because he doesn't tell Husker fans what they want to hear. Some of you guys have been spoon-fed and reassured for so long by the local media that it's made you unable to handle any kind of criticism (constructive or otherwise). If you want 24/7 rosy sunshine pumped up your backside, just don't listen to his show, nobody is forcing you to. At the same time, maybe you should go ask the prototype Kool-Aider (Jim Rose) if he'll reconsider coming back, because that is exactly the type of delusional rhetoric you apparently want to hear.

sublime_fan27 said...

Matt,

I also think that discrediting one's post due to poor spelling or grammatical error on a message board/blog is just plain stupid. The reason I did it, however, is because you did THE EXACT SAME THING to a poster in another thread! Wow, you just amaze me more each day. It's okay for you to do something, but it's not okay for another to do the same to you.

CubsNSkers05 said...

thanks for defending me sublime... Matt is just being a little hypocritical but thats fine by me... lets see if he can admit something for once?

magic said...

aric:

Jim Rose drank the red Kool-aid we agree with that but Matt takes it to a new level and constantly has to downgrade Nebraska's program. Rose at least was professional and had respect for other programs. He never had nick names for Dana or any of the Big 12 coaches. He's already trying to cover his butt and say Doc will be the first Husker coach to win in march someday, (now there is a rocket science comment) and at the same time saying the Husker program sucks. This way he covers himself both ways and can always be right. His rant's with Travis about Creighton having 10X the program really brought out his cluelessness to Nebraska. Travis in no way is a Husker fan and can figure out black from white and report objectively. We listen to Matt to come back and comment on the comments that don't come close to being objective!

Red Sox Fan said...

Opinions aren't ever totally objective...that's why they are opinions...The difference with Jim Rose and I is that I get paid for my opinion...up until recently, he did not not. Dirk from the OWH is not paid for his opinion either by the way.

Bill Swerski said...

Good Lord, you Husker fans are a bunch of insecure douchebags. What is the problem with another team getting coverage beside the Huskers? Particularly when that team IS 10X the program. I mean, come on, you make one upset and all of a sudden your entire century of dismal hoops play is all erased? Let's be serious. Your narcissism is never-ending - Perrault calls NU what it is (a terrible basketball program) and everyone is up in arms. You have every news station, 2 radio networks, and Omaha's paper on your side. But it is so offensive that one person on one network doesn't buy into the propoganda crap coming out of Lincoln. Let it go and listen to your buddies over on 1620.

mattiscool said...

I would love to Kick the shit out of a Crieghton fan. PUSSIES!!!!

Bill Swerski said...

Classy, as usual, from "The Greatest Fans in America." Why don't you first work on spelling Creighton, then you can take care of your irrational and pitiful anger issues. Sound good there champ?

mattiscool said...

Ok Champ. Sorry I mispelled creighton. I graduated from nebraska, champ. I will match my UNL education to your creighton education anyday of the week. However, I doubt you even have one.

Later Champ

mattiscool said...

Hey Bill,
do you like football? Just wondering who your team was? or are you a soccer fan?

Bill Swerski said...

That might be the funniest thing I've read in a while, especially considering the fact that I have my undergrad degree from Creighton and a graduate degree from Nebraska. But, you are right - I have no educational background.

I love football... I also like soccer. Favorite pro team: Bears (obviously). Favorite college team: anyone playing Nebraska.

Have a great day and feel free to take many more unfounded potshots at me. You're starting to sound an awful lot like Doc Sadler.

mattiscool said...

Why is that funny? I think its funny that you have such a hatered towards Nebraska. How childish does that sound. "anyone playing nebraska" Were you picked on a lot in highschool Billy. By the way, I may be your boss indirectly so be carefull.

Bill Swerski said...

It's funny because I've never been accused of being uneducated. And I can guarantee that you are not my boss (directly or indirectly) so no need to be careful here. Finally, you are the one with countless posts bashing Perrault and his backing of the CU basketball program - who's the one with unhealthy hatred here? Hmmm... really makes me wonder.

Why does every NU fan feel the need to actually go toe-to-toe in educational background with CU fans? Where does that come from? Anyone with half a brain (or any sense of national awareness, for that matter) knows that CU blows NU out of the water in education.

By the way, "anyone playing against Nebraska" is just as much a passion as your love FOR Nebraska. So what is the problem with that? Probably the same problem you have with Perrault - it's just so outrageous that someone doesn't drink the red Kool-aid.

mattiscool said...

ok

magic said...

Matt:

That's the problem I have, you say they are your opinion but I feel alot of the times they are more just comments or statements that you know will just add fuel to the fire. You know saying a statement like Creighton is 10X the program that NU is wouldnt be a reality opinion and that's what Travis was trying to explain. But it gets the show going or your blogs. Your opinion is more like Creighton has a better program over history then NU but that wouldnt piss enough people off to keep the show moving or the blogs

sublime_fan27 said...

Umm Bill Swerski,

If Creighton really is "10x the program" that Nebraska is, then answer this? Why does Nebraska own the series head-to-head? Much like your claim of heterosexuality, it is debunked.

Now, as far as education is concerned, I'm sure both Universities shine in different areas. Both Nebraska and Creighton are fine Midwestern educations. The main difference is one is private and cost $60,000 more. I will tell you this though, UNMC blows Creighton Med out of the frackin water. Creighton Med, who will accept anybody with Daddy's money, is having their medical students have so much trouble with passing their boards that they made mandatory board prepping classes because it was starting to become nationally embaressing. I say this because I have a deep knowledge of both medical programs to say the very least.

mattiscool said...

Bill never said he was heterosexual. I actually assumed he lived in an apartment with his boyfriend in the haymarket so he could easily walk to the qwest center.

Aric said...

Wow, what a surprise...Mattiscool is a homophobe too. Serious question, how old are you?

I am frankly sick of this conversation and debate. Nobody is going to agree with anyone else's opinions or point of view. The least we can do is act like adults here and it's gone past the line now.

Instead of hypothetical and juvenile debate, I think people should just let the facts and results speak for themselves. In that regard, I am glad I am on the blue side of the fence.

Bill Swerski said...

I guess I did the "gay thing" and considered NCAA tourney wins when I said that CU is 10X the program. Of course, by that token, every single BCS school is 10X the program that Nebraska is. At least you're as good as Northwestern though!

I'm becoming overwhelmed by the class from "The Greatest Fans in America." Well, I should probably leave now if I'm going to walk all the way from my apartment in the Haymarket to the Qwest for the game tonight. It's pretty cold though and it tends to get windy on I-80 this time of year. Better bundle up in my "hetero" coat so I don't get beat up by those tolerant NU fans.

I apologize if my retort wasn't up to your standards - one of these days I'll come up with a creative name that I can call you. For now, I'm assuming "Husker fan" is embarrassing enough.

Red Sox Fan said...

Man, you guys are a riot...thanks for being a part of the blog...

My opinion is what I think. What I believe is what I believe...if I believe it stronger than you - and back it up with facts...well, that's not a my problem.

beav said...

If what you say is "fact", then why does not any media people pick it up? If Sadler's comments towards Creighton were so disrespectful, then why did Tom Shatel not mention it in his article? The fact is that your use of Sadler's quotes are a complete misrepresentation of what he said. This is important because that was one of the main things you used to call for a retarded boycott of the Nebraska-Oregon game.

In other words, you're a tool.

Red Sox Fan said...

I love Tom Shatel - but when did he become the voice of God? If he doesn't talk about it then it doesn't exist? If Tom wrote the world was flat would you believe it?

I don't care what other people think if you haven't already figured that out. My thoughts are my own.

SpinSports590 said...

If Tom told me the world was flat and you said it was round, I would believe Tom first after hearing your bogus claims. Is Rich Rodriguez still coaching Michigan in the Bowl Game?

mattiscool said...

Matt,
In order to back up your opinion. You cant back it up with facts that arent truely facts. Such as RPI, RPI, RPI, RPI. Whats that mean? Ratings, Perrault, insufficient.???
