Re: MWC Impact With 23 Cal State U. Campuses Not Reopening in the Fall?

I agree that we need to resume our lives. We deal with risk all the time. We take precautions to deal with them to mitigate the risk. You could be killed in an automobile accident. We don’t tell everyone to stop driving. We equip our vehicles with safety features and practice safe driving techniques...

Re: MWC Impact With 23 Cal State U. Campuses Not Reopening in the Fall?

I am surprised more people don’t bring up the subject of our last pandemic, the Hong Kong flu of 1968-1969. It killed a million people worldwide and 100k in the US. I don’t remember us doing anything out of the ordinary in response to it. Could be because Wheatland was already isolated :D And they h...

Re: 2020 Season Thoughts?

Here’s a weird thing to consider. I read two separate articles today about people who were sick with Covid19 continuing to test positive a month after they recovered. One was about Chinese patients and the other was in Casper. What do we make of that? Are they now immune but can continue to infect o...

Re: Houston Astros “cheating” scandal

Could you elaborate on how they cheated at away games? To my knowledge they only cheated at home using a camera mounted in center field.

Re: COVID-19

At what point in our nation’s history did it become the federal government’s responsibility to make everyone whole when some disaster occurs? The federal government has taken on many powers not granted it in the constitution. I think it started with FDR and got worse with LBJ. “The powers not delega...

Houston Astros “cheating” scandal

Ok guys what are your thoughts on the Houston Astros scandal? Ten years ago I had to relocate from Casper to Houston to keep my job. Although a Rockies fan at the time I eventually became an Astros fan as well. Their 2017 season was a lot of fun to watch as they took the World Series. Then it became...

Re: WHATCHA DOING FRIDAY NITE, LOL

Great run boys. Glad to see some fire at the end. Edwards is gone, he would have had to make at least the Sweet 16 IMO to be safe. You really think he’s gone after that tournament run? Won’t pretty much the whole team be back next year? I admit I have not watched much this season but I was fairly i...

Re: @Nevada

First game I have watched this season. Based on what I have read on this site I had pretty low expectations. It was a fun game to watch. Took bad they couldn’t finish it.

Re: UNLV

Wow. You have to go back almost 50 years to find a Cowboy team with a worse record than this team. 73-74 Pokes only had 4 wins. This team is barely doing better than that. How sad.

Apparently this site has lost all interest in Cowboy basketball. Pokes ahead of Rebels in second half and not a single post. I gotta admit I just happened to come across the score by accident.

Re: What do you think about the CBS Report before the bowl game

I was only 12 years old in 1969 so my world view was still rather childish. We knew there were protesters around the country both against racism and the Viet Nam war, but it was all far removed from our “Mayberry” lives. The common sentiment was that we didn’t want that stuff happening in our state....

Re: Good luck Josh!!!

Yes, how about a game like “the choke”? 1993 Bills - Oilers. Bills down 35-3 and came back to win 41-38! Josh could do it! I live in Houston now and am normally a Texans fan but today I am Bills all the way! Plus it would be typical of the Texans to have another choke.

I have not watched or listened to a game yet this season. After what I have read on this board it is hard to get excited about doing so.

Gipson had 6 total tackles with 5 solos and 1 pass deflection, as his Texans defeated the Patriots 28 - 22. Link: https://www.espn.com/nfl/player/_/id/15 ... -gipson-sr
And for his introduction he didn’t say “the University of Wyoming”. He named some high school in Dallas.
