RB's yards harder and harder to come by , with the proliferation of spread offenses someone else will break 200 catches

Husker passing has typically been kind of lackluster, running backs have been the tradition. A Junior receiver at U. of Oregon could probably break our receiving record.

Look how long it took for anyone to get this close to breaking Rozier's career rushing mark, 31 years. Think about this, Who was the only other Husker RB that not only lead the Nation in rushing but also lead the nation in all purpose yards in that same year. Answer? The man who's 31 yr old Rushing record that Abdullah will break this year. Think about all of the great Husker RB's we've had since Rozier and no one has been closer than Abdullah. It took this long. Ameer is very special player and I think I can speak for alot of us older NU fans when I say this is a record we have waited for to be broken. Also in these at least last 6 games Ameer has a chance to break or tie Rozier's Career rushing TD mark which stands at 51 and Abdullah is at 37 as of now, Ameer is closing in on the majority of Rozier's records. Ameer as well only needs 12 more Rushing TD's tie Rozier's record of a once NCAA record 29. Ameer has already bested Rozier's YPC mark. Last Ameer only needs 800 and some change yards to pass Ron Dayne's BIG and NCAA All Purpose Yards record. You wanna know who the best RB in NU history is? He's finishing his senior season as we speak. I read Rozier's profile and reading it Ameer mirrors it. What's amazing is Ameer has done what he has in basically the same amount of time as it took Rozier to do it and it helps when you have 3 consecutive 1000 yard rushing seasons, a feat no other RB in NU history has ever been able to accomplish. One last thing to think about is, All of the other Husker greats had far, far better lines than Ameer....GO BIG RED!!!!

Offenses are passing more than they used to while Ameer's record is nearing a conference record, not just a team record.

I gave up our 4 season ticket a few years ago because of the deficiencies in the South Stadium and then they announced the renovations. Guess I made the right call afterall.

Far too expensive. Special seating for the rich is not fair to the majority of season ticket holders.

I don't think the half billion price tag to renovate a 100 year old stadium makes fiscal sense right now. There are also more economical ways to improve south stadium without completely tearing it down and displacing 22K fans for 2 years.

They were arbitrary plans. No legitimate schematic or even a mockup. Hard to back "we can't describe it, just trust us."

I think it is good to slow down the project and wait until we starting wiinning as then demand will significantly increase. Also wait until the economy is doing better and interest costs decrease. To me it is being good financial stewards of the Atheltic Department finances. Phases are good.

because I thought that this may not be a good time to be spending that much, when we haven't even finished the last project. I think our AD will have to be able to read the money people, and the times. I thought that Trev A couldn't live with that.

Compensation has always been tied to market value. These athletes are worth far more than they're being compensated, and that's been the case for over a century. Hence, they've been ripped off. I support salary, salary cap, and education on how to invest it in 401k style accounts.

It has to fair across the board, from Fordham to Alabama. one monthly stipend for everyone, not just scholarship players. There has to be a limit on how many players all schools should abide by. Determine the national budget and every school must contribute.

Compensation changes the entire dynamic of college athletics, and not in a positive way.

They should be students and NOT professional athletes. If they want to get paid they can go pro. Personally, I believe they should cancel all sports in public schools and colleges though I love our Huskers.

Put myself through school in the 70's. They are getting for exchange of their athletic prowess what I had to work and save for. The two summers after high school I drove alfalfa trucks 12 hours a day 7 days a week. EARN IT!

They already live better than most students. Free room and board, tutors, clothing, and actual education cost.

They are compensated with room and board plus an education. The perks they get as athletes now are unbelievable!!!
