Hey Rube….

Photo by Jamie Sabau/Getty Images Waking up not knowing what happened this week. We were somewhere around Tryon, in the middle of the sandhills, when the drugs began to take hold. I remember saying something like “I feel a bit light headed, maybe you should drive….” And suddenly there was a terrible roar all around us and the sky was full of what looked like huge bats, all swooping and screeching and diving around the car, and a voice was screaming: “Holy Jesus! What are...

Why a Cancelled Game Should Be a “Forfeit” and Not a “No Contest”

Adam Cairns/Columbus Dispatch via Imagn Content Services, LLC This isn’t just about Nebraska and Wisconsin. This could be about Michigan and Ohio State. To be clear, I absolutely understand why Wisconsin decided to postpone football related activities. It appears that COVID-19 is making its way through their program. At the same time the state of Wisconsin is seeing record highs of confirmed deaths and hospitalizations. I believe Wisconsin would have cancelled the game even if Graham Mertz had not tested positive. They still would have...

Reviewing the 2020 Wisconsin Badgers

Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports Wisconsin looked impressive in their season opener, but now the Huskers’ look like they’ve be facing the dreaded COVID-19 BYE week instead. Each week, I’ll dust off the preseason preview of this week’s opponent for the Huskers and provide some updates. Of course, as this was sitting ready for publication, Wisconsin was forced to suspend football activities, cancelling the game. Still, it’s worth taking a peek at what could have been. Wisconsin started the season with a dominant 45-7 victory over...

Jon’s Postlife Crisis: Tyler Hunt – Reaction To The Nebraska – Wisconsin Game Being Canceled

Photo by Dan Sanger/Icon Sportswire via Getty Images Damned disappointing, that’s what this is. Today started pretty well. I was notified that the paperback version of my book, Been Dead, Never Been To Europe, was available in the Amazon store, and I was elated that I’d gotten through all the hurdles of self-publishing to get to this point. Then I hopped on Twitter to see what the world was screaming about, and there it was, news that the Nebraska – Wisconsin game had been cancelled....

Report Card: Ohio State Buckeyes 52, Huskers 17

Photo by Jamie Sabau/Getty Images It looked fun for a while… then reality set in. There were a lot of things for Husker fans to get excited about early, even if the final result ended up looking like more-of-the-same. National media types may just note the final score and move on, but there were flashes to show that Nebraska is improved at many positions this season. That being said, there were several positions that didn’t show improvement, and one in particular was practically classified “missing...
