The Off-Season Begins
Can somebody explain to me why the season is so short, AND there is a 50-60 day gap between the last game of the regular season and the bowl games? Is it too early to start my rants on the evils of the NCAA and their communist regime that would make Mao se Tung spin over in his grave with delight. Seriously, how can a group of (supposedly) intelligent men fuck up something that is so great? Of course it's money, but the bastards don't even pay taxes....how the hell can they be greedy enough to force feed us crap like the BCS, and just watch us as we sit back and take it?
I can go on and on, but I'll stop there.
* When does Husker baseball start? Seems like just yesterday, that over hyped band of corn-fed underachievers were splattering themselves on the proverbial concrete that is the NCAA baseball tournament. Now, I'm not about to go preaching about what a great sport college baseball is, because it's not. (This coming from a guy who played it.) What was my point? Oh yeah...just because your team is good, doesn't mean it's an entertaining sport to the rest of the 10 billion or so other humans on this planet. More to come on this monstrosity I'm sure as the season grows nearer.
* For the love of all things good and holy....TAKE DOWN YOUR CHRISTMAS LIGHTS!!! It's the 2nd week of January and the temperatures are about 20 degrees warmer than normal. Get your fat American Idol watching ass up on that roof and get those low-wattage tributes to our Lord and savior down before you embarrass yourself further. Damn rednecks in this town....
* Funny how just a year ago, Steve Pederson, Bill Callahan and every buck-toothed redneck from here to McCook were sporting "Order Restored" t-shirts after a victory against a tough and battle-tested Colorado team. (Who in turn has won 2 games since.) Does anybody else find it ironic that those t-shirts came out of the box...and the team went on to lose 5 times in 2006...only the 3rd 5 loss or more season for Nebraska since 1961? Correct me if I'm wrong, but if you're going to be LAME enough to make a fucking t-shirt about being "back where you belong", you might want to be sure and actually beat somebody worth a shit the following year.
Did I mention the Hicks fell out of the season-ending top 25 yet again today?
Order Restored indeed.
