Smartest Kids on the Short Bus


Before I head out for the evening...quick congrats to the Big 12 North team that wanted it the least...the Missouri Tigers. Nebraska, running the most boring and predictable offense on earth (with the exception of their now standard 1 trick play a game) wins the slap fight and barring a total choke to CU in 3 weeks..will win the right to get ass-rammed by Texas.

But smack aside, the much meligned Husker coaching staff called an excellent game....simply by showing up and allowing Gary Pinkel in the building so he could call 10 yard outs and draws, instead of attacking one of the worst defensive backfields in college football. (Seriously..how many times did they go deep downfield? 5? 6?)

Brandon Jackson is a load, and Zac Taylor continues his Trent Dilfer-esque ability to not destroy his own team too bad. (I think he's actually pretty good) Obviously, as I stated on Friday, this game was way bigger for Nebraska, and it showed. Missouri will go 9-3 this year, and head to either El Paso, San Antonio or wherever. Nebraska will wear their new "Order Restored t-shirts" and continue to stand waist deep in medicoriy, even if Colorado, K-State, KU, Iowa State and Missouri have their heads underwater.

I'm not sure if being the skinniest girl at fat camp is something to be proud of, but I'm sure you'll take it. I"m not sure if beating a team (and nearly giving it away..only to have them give it back away) you've beaten every year at home since Three's Company was on is a huge achievment...but nonetheless...props to Callahan for saving his job for a few more years. I can dish it out...I can certainly take it.

I'm heading out tonight, so go ahead and pile on as you see fit. (JP gets first honors) Rest assured...as I stated many times...I'm a Missouri fan. I expect this stuff. Big fat thud's in a big game are nothing new. In fact..it's quite anti-climactic.

Fire away..and a new post tomorrow.

I'm impressed, a little. I'm the guy who gave you the "hanging curve" about your premise. The reason I even heard about your blog is I'm a Denver Bronco fan, not a Cornhusker as you assume, and I can't stand CU fans. I constantly tell them that they are not worthy of being called fans because their hatred of Nebraska is greater than their love for CU. That's not a football fan. In pointing this out to my one true CU fan friend, he told me about your blog. He gets his almost daily fix of Husker hatred from you. I assumed, until today, that you had the same issue as most CU fans, and that disappointed me coming from a Mizzou fan. But I might be wrong. You might actually love Missouri more than you hate Nebraska. Good for you.

But my earlier post is still correct. It's not just me that says Nebraska fans are the classiest. Most broadcast teams, most sports pundits, even opposing coaches and players repeat it. So you versus all of them, I say they win. It's your blog, that's your leg up, but that's it. Nebraska fans are the classiest in America says tons more credible people than I and those of you who disagree, well, you are unabashed fans of rival teams.

Just be happy the score wasnt worse. The 4th and 1 dropped pass kept Missouri in the game.

By the way, your star quarteback picked his nose on national television. And then proceeded to eat it.

GROSS

Dammit! I was sitting with Husker fans, and they even knew that the Spread Option was coming. Then the one time Jimmy Jackson and Temple were in the same backfield, I called the triple option. Terrible.

And could Chase overthrow everyone just a little bit more?

I enjoyed the day, the moment and watching the Huskers kick Missouri tail today in the stadium. AND I will enjoy what you have to say to all who leave you comments after the game today.

GBR...........Today was just one more step to having the Order Restored!

Be proud AJ, despite the loss, it's not all bad. You can still wake up in the morning and say that you're not a Cornhole fan.

Keep fighting the good fight. I feel your hatred. I live in CO, and deal with these stupid ass clowns more often than I'd like (not as bad as you get it, but I feel what you feel), and hate them all with a passion.

Just curious if maybe BHG or HuskerMike have some thoughts about what a terrible hire Houston Nutt would have been?

Arkansas is rated #12 and one of the best teams in the SEC.

One thing's for sure... There are a helluva lot of hillbillies in Missouri and Arkansas. Those two states have more meth labs and toothless hicks than any other two states in the country. Missouri should pony up the cash and hire Nutt. He is a great recruiter and a very good coach. Husker Nation thought Steve Pederson was crazy for trying to get him... Illustrating the point that the Solichistas.. a whole shitload of Husker fans.. don't have a fucking clue.

Missouri should hire fellow hillbilly Houston Nutt as fast as possible.

Go Big Red!

JP had so many thoughts in his head..he couldn't come up with anything else...but he's right.

What we got here was two teams of nearly equal crappiness. Even when Nebraska was ready to pull away, Missouri gave it right back to them. And as for the comment about the drop on 4th and 1...if we're having do overs on drops..I'd like the TD back against Texas A&M please. :)

In terms of "order restored", it all goes back to expectations. If you want to be the best team out of the North...then that's cool. This season..the Hicks are that...if barely. (If the game was in Columbia, it'd be pretty much Mizzou by a head if you ask me.) But it all came down to turnovers.

Mizzou had 2..Nebraska scored 14 points off of them.

Hicks had 2..Mizzou went 3 and out.

There's your ballgame.

As for the rest of you jackoffs...I hope you see the overall big picture. I've told you for months...years that this Missouri team isn't that good. Are they better? Yes. Are they the best Mizzou team in a while? Probably? Are they going to beat Nebraksa in Lincoln when Pinkel is calling draws and bubble screens when NU is starting a freshman DB at linebacker? No.

Hating the Huskers is far bigger than one game. My own personal team has lost LOTS of games to Nebraska in my lifetime..and a slap-fest like this sure as hell isn't going to be the one to keep me from hating them more.

The North is pretty bad. We can all probably agree on that.

More tomorrow.

PS - One thing I forgot..despite NU winning the North..there is a VERY real chance they will head to a bowl game at 8-5. (Loss to A&M and Texas, beat CU) If they lose their bowl game..is 8-6 "Order Restored?"

Winning the Special Olympics that is the North isn't quite the same as standing in the Rose Bowl in 2002, watching Miami pick up their trophy is it?

Chase eats his boogers? On national TV? Surely you have feelings about this. Funniest thing Ive seen in a long time.

The game was never in doubt. The only time Husker fans were nervous was after Phillips dropped a sure TD pass that wouldve put them up 34-6 and Mizzou took it down the field to make it 27-13. But then they put the camera on Chase sitting on the bench and he picked his nose. What came next, is something I wont soon forget. HE ATE HIS FREAKIN BOOGER! ON NATIONAL TV! ARE YOU KIDDING ME? This game was never in doubt. Hell, you needed a 51 yrd FG to cut it to 21 ..... at halftime. HE ATE HIS BOOGER? JESUS, I CANT GET OVER THAT.

That's great...it is obvious you keep down playing MU's program while NU fans have higher expectations for their team. You must hate yourself for that...if you don't - consider it. You seem to have enough hate for others. I recommend some for yourself. SAD, isn't it? By the way, you could see the set up in your writing miles away. Downplay the MU program (OK, so they never really do win anything)then if they happen to win - you can lambast NU fans. Lose and your safe...never expected it. PATHETIC.

"Downplay the Missouri program"

What in the fuck are you talking about? THEY'RE FUCKING MISSOURI. This is the stupidest thing I've seen in a long long time. You fuckers may be completely delusional, but I am not. This is what seperates normal fans from complete fucking freaks like you. I am a realist. I know who my team is. I know their past. I know their weaknesses. And yet, I'm "downplaying" Missouri?

Uhhh.."downplaying missouri" or are you "upplaying" a win over a mediocre North team who has lost 3 of 4, starts 4 seniors out of 24 and has lost to you in Lincoln every year since 1978? Yes. I'm dowplaying.

And I saw the "booger" video...pretty weak. Picking your nose if fine. Whatever...dude is playing a game...busting his ass. THen, like 6-8 seconds later he wipes his mouth with the back of his hand.

What are you idiots? 5? Go watch Terry Allen if you want to get your jollies off on kindergarden humor.

Wouldn't expect hicks to be amused by anything less.

Oh boy. The youtube clip is only 8 seconds total.

And gimmie a break. If Taylor was caught doing that you know it would be up on this site.

You are lying if you say otherwise.
And he did eat it. He picked ... waited 3 seconds, and ate his booger.

No true. Do you HONESTLY know of an 18 year old who doesn't have a mental handicap and does that? Seriously..And yet who fucking cares?

And no...it wouldn't be on this site. I don't have to stoop to booger humor because I'm better than that. You would think you people would be able to spin a bit better..since of course you won the game..but apparently your best shot is making fun of the kid because he may or may not have eaten something that was in his nose.

Seriously..look at yourselves. I was expecting much more from you people...but yet I'm not suprised.

And I'm not sure if you know this..but I have TONS of pictures, videos etc of stupid shit Nebraska fans and players do that I don't post..including a picture of a Husker player at a halloween party this past year that would probably make some pretty big headlines.

So don't insult my ability to bash you by saying I would stoop that low. I wouldn't. I don't have to.
