Hi! Remember me? Enjoying Minnesota Week?
Me neither. To either.
So what’s going on, guys and gals?
Heard football’s canceled. That sucks, man.
But WSR had a great reflection on Minnesota football history and travel—it’s not, like, uplifting or anything, but it’s one of the more poignant reflections I’ve read in the decade or so I’ve wasted on this here blog.
Short answer: This is depressing as hell. So we all sat around and wallowed, right?
Oh, you sweet summer child.
You know the story—you don’t need to click the links or anything else. In fact, having shown its whoooooooole ass in the last couple days, I’d recommend not clicking the Omaha World-Herald again. We like CornNation, go click them (though you’re forewarned about the comments):
So which South Carolina is Nebraska being—1833 South Carolina, or 1860 South Carolina?
Can Nebraska go rogue and play college football this fall? “Not and be a member of the Big Ten Conference.” Column on the Big Ten cancelling the fall season and why Nebraska's public carping wasn't based in reality. https://t.co/ArUa6foy1L— Pete Thamel (@PeteThamel) August 12, 2020
“Consider them rolled” it’s not, but Kevin Warren with some shades of Delany in chiding the rebellious child actor that is 2020 Nebraska.
Of course, as Jesse has pointed out, Nebraska has right to be aggrieved, and the Big Ten (and its constituent fans) have every right to shout “SCOREBOARD” or “4-8!” or whatever else it is that scores a point in this day and age. Round and round we go.
this man's team also lost by 39 to the 2019 Northwestern Wildcats, so maybe let's not just assume he's got his whole life in order https://t.co/jixs3vjaBe— Off Tackle Empire (@offtackleempire) August 13, 2020
If someone loses by 39 to Northwestern, do the opposite of the things they do.
Oh yeah, Jeff Brohm’s got ideas.
And, I mean...
#Purdue coach @JeffBrohm has put together a very detailed and thoughtful proposal for spring football in the #B1G and how it would work in fall 2021. Will have more later but here’s the overview. pic.twitter.com/2hKtArzqgJ— Adam Rittenberg (@ESPNRittenberg) August 13, 2020
...not the dumbest thing I’ve ever seen? Way to skirt around that amateurism issue, guys. As long as we come out of this having maintained the status quo.
