Nebraska Hodge-Podge

Rather than just blog about a formal subject, I have decided to take the hodge-podge of ideas in my head and put them to this document I am typing on currently.

-On Expansion…

-Being a Nebraska fan I feel that this is a terrible idea especially since I will have to deal with Ohio State, Michigan and (potentially) Notre Dame fans even more than I already have to. Being from Ohio I find it to be a treat that I can sit back and watch the madness of these fans as their teams blow big games, and in some cases just outright suck. The fact is, these people are among the most annoying people I have ever met in my life, and I have no doubts that I would end up throwing myself off a bridge if I were to encounter these people in an opposing manner up to two times a year at most. So for the love of all that is sacred with Nebraska this expansion can’t happen…EVER. Unless it is to the MAC or something of that nature.

-On Husker Locker Blog’s Top 30 players of the past 30 years.

-While I do agree with most of the list, the fact that Zac Taylor did not get an honorable mention astounds me for many reasons. I know there is a tendency to not like anything heavily involved with the Callahan Era, but Taylor does hold many of the passing records at Nebraska. Yes, I am aware, that you or I could have broken most of the passing records following all the years of Option, but it is more than that, he lead Nebraska to their biggest wins of the Callahan Era against Michigan in the 2006 Alamo Bowl, and the fourth quarter drive against Texas A&M the following season. I didn’t expect him to be ranked in the Top 30, but the fact he wasn’t given an honorable mention, as I said before, completely astounds me.

-On the Best player in Nebraska History?

Clearly the second person in this video...

On expansion....Let's say Texas, A&M and Missouri all go elsewhere leaving 3 holes in the Big 12. Who would you like to see take their place? TCU, Houston, Utah, Boise State? If the Big 12 does get some teams pulled I think it would be an interesting opportunity to get some of the top mid-major schools into a BCS Conference. Or they could just form with the Pac-10 into a Super Conference.

On that video...wow.

Honestly. I would like to see Colorado State replace Missouri because of the rivalry with Colorado, and I just think they should be in the same conference. In the south we may as well reform part of the old Southwest Conference with Houston and TCU. Just to keep the Texas vibe down there alive. Maybe Tulsa if you want to add a team from both Oklahoma and Texas.

Also, I figured you would appreciate that video; if for nothing else than Terrell Farley saying, "We gonna play them chumps, them Gators."

While we are at it, I may buy up all of these shirts...

I wonder if Tommie would be willing to step inside the Octagon and mix it up with Herschel.
