Have I mentioned that teaching summer courses blows? The pace is ridiculous and I actually feel sorry for my students. Anyway, does anyone find the Google Reader links useful? I spend a ton of time on mine so I figured I would just start sharing interesting finds with Nebraska fans.

Outside of non-stop bickering from Mizzou fans regarding the Gabbert commitment, there just isn’t that much going on in Husker Nation.

I’ve secured some tapes of 2006 games so I can add details to my efforts to chart every offensive play. I hope to have that completed sometime before the 2007 season. Actually it shouldn’t take that long. Hopefully it will prove to be a worthwhile endeavor. I’ve already had tons of fun analyzing the data that I do have. But then again, I’m a big nerd.

Erin Andrews Picture of the Week and Some Help

May 11, 2007

Ok, so I mentioned a pet project the other day, and I could use some help with it. I’ve decided to chart every play from Nebraska’s 2006 season. So far I have 10 out of the 14 games done. This should be pretty cool once I have it done as it will allow for even deeper analysis. I will be able to break down play selection by down, distance and field possession and hopefully highlight some tendencies. I’ll also be able to better analyze the value of individual players based on their contributions at important times in the games.

Where I could use some help is in locating game footage. So far I’ve been limited to using the official play-by-play data sheets to extrapolate the information. I would like to be able to use game tape to add the formations, type of pass or run, etc. Unfortunately I no longer have any of the games from last season. My DVR sucks! So if you or anyone you know has any of the games on DVD/Tape or electronic file I would love to get my hands on it.

My thought process is that this might be as close as we as fans can get as far as getting into Callahan’s head. I feel somewhat qualified to take this on as my never-ending insomnia gives me ample late night opportunities for data entry and my stat-geekery knows no bounds.

So anyway, if you or someone you know can help you can contact me at JAdams1277 (AT)


Erin Andrews Picture of the Week And FSU Memories

May 4, 2007

I hate to give her more exposure, but this one hit close to home, as Jenn Sterger’s Florida State Road Trip hit SI on Campus. Given that I spent three years in the coed Mecca that is Tallahassee, I thought I would evaluate how Jenn did with her favorite Tally hotspots.

Best place to celebrate a big win: Tennessee Street.

The Strip, as we call it, is a mecca for Tallahassee nightlife. From dive bars (The Pub), to ’80s for the ladies (Yanni’s), it has a little something for everyone. Not to mention its where my fellow Cowgirl Allison and newbie Jessica hold down sweet bartending gigs at Big Daddy’s — ranked one of the craziest bars in the country. So don’t be surprised if you hear a little Charlie Daniels and some bar stomping on a Thursday night … things are probably just getting started.

Jenn’s right on here, although my opinion on some of the bars she singled out differs slightly. Tennessee Street is like “O” Street on steroids. Literally. The guys are seriously meatheads. But the girls are tan, outgoing, and scantily-clad. What more could you ask for?

Best landmark:

The Capitol Building. Located next to Doak, it’s better known for being an enormous phallic symbol. If you have to ask what I am talking about, I’m sure Google images can assist you.

I was shocked to learn that I had traded one phallic state capital structure for another. Florida’s version is far worse, however. It even has balls.

Best place for a guy’s night out:

The Palace Saloon. Forget the ’80s music and girly cocktails. When the male population of Florida State needs to cut loose, they head to the Palace. The place just screams manliness: the lack of décor (aside from beer and sports neons), the abundance of pool tables and dartboards and the absence of any drink that requires a straw. Considering Tallahassee is devoid of gentleman’s clubs, the Palace offers a retreat from the girlfriend’s nagging, without the need for further explanation.

Again Jenn was right on. The Palace is the best. Bonus points for being located a block from my apartment. This is the bar that provided the motivation for my first solo trek to a drinking establishment. Shortly after moving Tally, and before I had met anyone, the siren call of cheap Bud Light was too great to resist. I soon became a happy hour regular.

Best place to grab a slice:

Momo’s. Pizza is a college student’s main source of nutrition, and Momo’s does its part to make sure no student goes hungry. The slices they serve up redefine huge: They are as big as your head!! And that is no exaggeration.

More of the parallel world stuff. I went from LaBamba’s and “burritos as big as your head” to Momo’s with “pizza slices as big as your head”. Both were great drunk food and I’m just happy to have a fast metabolism.

Best pregame ritual:

The Village. Most schools have a special place to gather on game days… a building, a parking lot … but Tallahassee has an entire village. The tenants of the apartment complex adjacent to Doak Campbell open up their homes, their hearts and their coolers to Seminole fans and visitors alike. Though visitors in blue and orange may get a bit of heckling, the kids that gather at the village are simply there to enjoy the pregame festivities and have a good time. Maybe it takes a ‘village to raise a fan,’ too.

My first home game, I was absolutely stunned to find out a place like the Village actually existed. Imagine a cul-de-sac of small duplex-type apartments. Each with its own keg and or/bar service. Now add several thousand students and you have the greatest pre-game atmosphere I have ever encountered. This place is where red solo cups go to die.

Hidden gem:

Club Publix. Normally the hardest decision you face when you go to the grocery store is paper or plastic. But imagine a place where shopping is more than just a pleasure, it’s a place to meet your future ex-girlfriend. Some of the hottest girls in Tallahassee can be found as close as your nearest grocer’s freezer. So now it’s not just paper or plastic … it’s blonde, brunette or redhead.

Holy crap, I suddenly have a teensy-weensy bit of respect for Ms. Sterger. Publix is the Sistine Chapel of shopping excursions. Single guys in Tally were known to do their weekly shopping one item per trip, allowing ample time to gaze at the scenery. The only hidden gem that could perhaps compete was the weight room at the student recreation center. I used to joke that it was like working out at the Playboy Grotto. I don’t know what they put in sports bras, but it must be tougher than Kevlar. If you ever get the chance to watch a busty blonde hit the pec deck machine, I recommend you stare. A lot.

I figured we hadn’t put a shot of Poopsie up for a while, so here ya go. Also, I’ve decided to retool the Charting Our Progress series I had started. I didn’t really like the way it was going, and it didn’t match my original intentions. I plan on having the first of the new versions up on Monday and I think it will be more meaningful.

Erin Andrews Picture of the Week – March Madness

Wow, I just had my worst first day ever in an NCAA pick’em. How bad was it? My fiancé, completing her first bracket ever(!) has a two game advantage over me. I went an abysmal 11/16 (even after picking VCU over Duke), while the GWFJHIL is an incredible 13/16. The bet is that GWFJHIL gets a new pair of shoes should she beat me. The bottom line – never underestimate the power of Jimmy Choo!
