The season has started and will dominate my Saturdays so I only have time for a quick post. You might think I’m a big fan by these words but it’s more of an obligatory thing than a choice. The relatively long drive through a lot of traffic, pre- and post- game meetup with some people means the entire day is consumed.
But, I did get this article and it’s cute so I thought I’d post it in a brief lull before more game activity. It sounds like fun but it’s interesting how the Net has become the showcase for cats. I detect, just because you can make such silly, but entertaining videos of them, that this has increased their popularity. I wonder if an event like this would have occurred without the Net.
By the way the Walker is a wonderful museum, esp. the nearby sculpture garden. Save some time for it if you’re ever in Minneapolis.
Game prediction. Naturally the Huskers will win since they schedule these doormat teams (sorry for the insult, So. Miss, but your AD knows its true) early in the season so they get easy wins to climb in the ratings. I’ve always thought this is stupid, play hard games in the early season so you get better, don’t just run up scores. The second part of my prediction is Taylor still can’t throw and the receivers, chosen for blocking ability, still can’t catch, so it will be a running game until the Huskers are so far in front they can start doing the long-bomb, but safe passes after So. Miss is tired. The third part is that the defense will be ragged and So. Miss will give them a scare, but overall they’ll give the fans what they want (Nebraska fans only like defense and the only purpose of the offense is to stay on the field long enough to let the defense rest), so at least one score by the defense, probably three turnovers.
But who knows, maybe Taylor will fumble a few times and Bo will go in one of his rages and chew Taylor out and then Taylor will get sullen. I’m still waiting for Bo to show some results from his off-season anger management classes; he’s almost too much for the fans who love freaking-out coaches.
So nothing else today, off to Lincoln.
