Corn Fed Tigers (plus Eric Crouch interview)

October 8th, 2008 · Comments Off on Corn Fed Tigers (plus Eric Crouch interview)

So the NU v. Mizzou game went just about as I called it. I’d look even more psychic if I’d have stuck with my original pick of 50-17. You win some… you lose some… and some you lose… you lose badly. Unfortunately, this week NU travels to Lubbock where things may get ugly again. Possibly […]

Bring on the Tigers

October 4th, 2008 · 3 Comments

yeah… I know that Mizzou is gonna win this one… probably about 43-17 or so… but I still picked NU to win 33-31 over at Huskerpedia (because 32-31 was already taken) Here’s the deal… Mizzou has always been the sleeping giant of midwest football (along with Illinois) and it seems like they’ve finally put fences […]

38 Random Things

I’m OK… thanks for asking. I’m just not sure how I really want to use this blog or if I want to use it. I added the “Blogging Without Obligation” badge a long time ago and adhere to its principles. I’m glad to know that many people missed my blogging… but… I’m one of those […]

Making Friends in Omaha

June 24th, 2008 · 1 Comment

Those of you who know me personally (instead of digitally) and share my love of sports have probably heard me talk about the College World Series… hosted in my hometown of Omaha, Nebraska where the people are… friendly. Here’s an article from ESPN that might help explain why it is such a great event… it […]

American Idol Omaha

January 31st, 2008 · Comments Off on American Idol Omaha

Yeah… I’m from Omaha. Actually Bellevue, but we are on friendly terms with Omaha so I can say I’m from Omaha and it will be O.K. with both cities. I watched American Idol last season… and that’s a mistake I’ll definitely never make again… but when I saw that the latest show was Omaha auditions… […]

Bo Big Red

December 3rd, 2007 · 1 Comment

Hopefully the nightmare is over! Actually I *do* know that calling anything in college football a nightmare is shallow… but I’m gonna stick with that term for now. I supported Frank Solich and Bill Callahan to the very end… because I’m a fan of the team and the school no matter who is the coach. […]

Tigers Love To Devour Corn, Apparently

October 7th, 2007 · 2 Comments

Bad day for all my teams. Although I predicted that the 2nd most likely result would be a blowout Mizzou win… I’d rather be wrong than have my Huskers on the wrong end of a 41-6 game. NU’s defense was “as advertised” — bad. But NU’s offense was horrid… or MU’s D was great… not […]

Huskers v. Tigers

October 6th, 2007 · 2 Comments

Well last week’s game with ISU was one of the strangest games I’ve ever experienced. The initial look at the stats would lead one to believe that ISU had a chance… but the game really wasn’t in doubt. Because the NU offense and special teams either turned the ball over almost immediately OR scored very […]

Huskers v. Cyclones

September 29th, 2007 · 2 Comments

Nothing like a game against Iowa State to cure what ails your favorite team. I’m sure I’ll have to eat those words in a few hours after the Huskers allow several ISU players to look like All-Americans. That’s just the way it is going to be this year. Although I keep trying to get really […]

A Midwest Rite of Passage

September 19th, 2007 · 6 Comments

A few days ago, I mentioned detasseling in my post about Nebraska ag products being sold to Taiwan. I’m sure the internets are all buzzing about detasseling now… so I’ll fill you in. It all started back in the 1940’s. Scientists figured out that corn hybrids were the way to go. The blending of different […]
