Here they come....

You know "Order has been restored" when the freaks find their way back here. It's like coming home again. :)

Let's get a couple of things out in the open:

1) I was laughing AT you..not WITH you when you all jumped the gun this morning. Of course, you missed the point anyway. Is this how far you've fallen? I used to get trash talk and death threats after Nebraska won National Titles...or beat my team 65-0. Now, I get "Take that ya douche" whenever you pick up some hothead player who a) isn't going to play for you for at LEAST a year and b) was second string for a mid-level pac-10 team no less than a few days ago.

2) The guy has great numbers...there is no denying that. And yes..if I were you, and I had the kid from Life Goes On as my most experienced QB next year...I'd be a bit happy I didn't have to start a guy named Joey Ganz. So yes...you dodged a HUGE bullet. Kudos to you. I will give you partial credit....after your last CAN NOT MISS QB, it's a nice get for you, especially compared to the alternative.

3) How many times...over and over and over again have we heard the hype about how great one of your future players is going to be...only to watch them flame out and have you proclaim, "they sucked anyway" or "we never really wanted him?" It's happened time and time and time again. This guy was a cancer at ASU, and completely quit on his teammates when he didn't get this way. (Something you all mocked Harrison Beck for by the way) And you're going to let Callahan loose on him for a full year? You do realize what kind of track record Callahan has with keeping teams full of questionable characters together don't you? Perhaps you missed Callahan's last NFL team where several players reportedly had to be held back at practice from trying to kill him.

Here's what you have fallen from.

You used to run smack over National Titles...24 year winning streaks, leading the nation in rushing, endless All-Americans, year after year of going to bowls etc etc etc.

What do you have now?

A win over a Colorado team that scored 6 points in 3 games.
A win over Michigan that was a complete fluke
A 2nd string Pac-10 QB who was blackballed for being a cancer to his team
No running back who averaged over 3.4 yards per carry last year
Wide Receivers who look like John Stockton
And nothing more....

Are you getting what I'm saying?

Of course you don't. You don't because you don't see the big picture. You've gone from having the ultimate scoreboard, to relying on nothing but hope, potential and a bunch of faded "Back to Back" t-shirts. Before you have even won a game this year, you have already given yourself already the North title in 2006, but now you're going to win the National title in 2007.

This is a very very very dangerous game you're playing.

So go ahead...gather at 72nd and Dodge and let the party get started. (That is unless the kid changes his mind...which by judging from his character so far...isn't out of the realm of possibility) While you're out on the streets celebrating, please give me one reason why I should give you one ounce of credit. (Aside from the fact that you only had some Juco flunky to start next year) Until this Keller kid is raising the Big 12 title trophy over his head in December of 2007, let's pretty much consider this a work in progress...especially considering that without Arizona State's Receivers, offensive line and running backs...the guy has about as much chance of matching his old numbers at NU as Tom Osborne has getting the lead role in Naughty Nurses 4.

When you have nothing else...and all your memories are fading in the distance...I guess it's understandable that you'd be bouncing off the walls right now.

And STOP fucking blaming Frank Solich.

Sheesh...douche bags.

PS - JP...welcome back

The amount of energy you pour into this blog is mind boggling.

Everybody has a hobby. Heh. I'll take it as a left handed compliment though.

Back from summer break are ya? It's been extremely non-confrontational without you. Kinda boring really.....Thank God you're back. :)

For every touted recruit that doesn't pan out, there's an off-radar guy that becomes a stud. Corey McKeon, Cory Ross, etc.

College sports are volatile...it makes it fun and different.

That's all I've ever done. They don't give me a press pass, so I'll have to rely on that for a while.

I'm not saying the kid isn't a talent. Just seems there are a lot of red flags on him. We'll see.

Has anyone seen the front page of Hypocrites Illustrated this morning?

Definite man-love going on there. You know a fan base has no life when the media outlet deems it necessary to publish 20+ pictures of a guy in street clothes "doing stuff".

Pathetic.

P.S. Hawkins will own Callahan this year...bank on it. I'll be there again to witness the "classy" fusker fans leaving en masse during the middle of the 3rd quarter (like 2004 in Stinkoln when GB owned him).

My title suggestion for your next piece:

"Have You Forgotten that Your Head Coach is Bill Callahan?"

Who is the Andy Capp? He's relevant these days. Almost as relevant as a hayseed in bibbers with a piece of corn sticking out of his back pocket.

AJ, excellent write up on the KellAR media hype. I tried very hard to listen to Husker suck up radio show on 1110 last night, but could not swallow it down.

Had a Husker fan yell at me in traffic today for no reason other than my CU sticker. Told me to move back to Colorado. Ahhh Nebraska!

According to Mr. Buffenstein, "passionate fans" need not apply. I think that a certain segment of any teams fan base is going to be classified "passionate". In most organized schools, they refer to them as the Booster Club.

In living in Nebraska, one should not be shocked or alarmed to find devoted Nebraska Cornhusker fans. Rather the opposite would be the absurd.

I would admit that I don't believe other schools have the same life long devotion that the Cornhuskers program has become accustomed to. The one team that in my experience resembles Husker Nation, are the Cheeseheads in Green Bay. North of Racine, it would appear that Brett Favre passing of gas was newsworthy.

My problem with the Nebraska program is Pederson and his handling of the program. Has anyone heard anyone of the radio that has a discouraging remark or even a blemish about the program. No not one, why is that? Could it be because Pederson would no longer allow that reporter access to the program. A bit of change from the Bill Byrne/Bob Devaney days whem the OWH took potshots at T.O. all day long with writers making suggestions that T.O. had to go. When was the last time we heard a view other than the Pederson line out of the sportswriters. Apparently they are left without a pair.
