Myth Busting - The Season Preview Continues

OK fine.

Some of you greeted my predictions with a TINGE of skepticism. I completely understand that, and completely expected that. Obviously you don't lose to Montana State at home and then turn that around. Perhaps they won't turn it around? Obviously could happen. However, it's not as crazy as you would think. To me, they're a quarterback away from being right back into contention in the North. They do get Missouri and Nebraska at home in the dead of November. However, all it's going to take is a few big wins early to start the ball rolling. How would CU's season have been viewed had they beaten Georgia on the road last year?

If's and but's. I know.

I'm sure you've felt the same way, but with the completion of media days this week, the prognostication and discussions are reaching deafening levels. This would probably be one of my favorite times of the year, if not for the fact that the goofy theories get goofier. And people who were barely discussing one player in November...now suddenly talk him up like crazy in July. (Even though nobody has seen him play.) Hopefully you take all of this for what it is, which is the buildup to the greatest spectacle in American sports. But with that buildup, you have to wade through a lot of crap. Let's take a look at some key myths for 2007.

MYTH – Larry the Cable Guy sucks.
Pretty simple here: It's not a myth, it's true, therefore it's defined as a statement.

MYTH - Miami @ Oklahoma will be the best game of the year in the big 12.
This would have been great if it were played in the late 80's. Unfortunately, the Cane's haven't been to the Midwest since Jesus was in diapers and Oklahoma is flat out better. Even if they're somewhat improved, I don't see Miami putting up one ounce of fight, and will get pistol whipped in Norman. Look for OU to run all day on them.

MYTH - Bill Callahan needs to win the North to keep his job safe.
Absolutely false. Steve Pederson will go to his grave as the guy who gutted NU football like a trout, and installed an NFL flunky with zero college experience. (As well as those butt-ass stupid glasses he wears to make him look smart.) Unless 25,000 fans showed up on the doorstep of the south stadium with pitchforks and torches, there is absolutely no way in hell Callahan would be on the hot seat this year..even if he ended up 2-10 and lost to Ball State by 50. Aint gonna happen, and it's not because he's some sort of genius. (Despite the glasses).

MYTH - Nebraska should have no problem with Wake Forest in week #2.
Nebraska is going to get absolutely sodomized by Wake Forest in week #2. Remember that look of dazed and confused by Scott Frost when he walked into Tempe in 1996? Remember that glazed over "This isn't supposed to happen to us" look? You may as well grab a sharpie and draw that on JC Keller's face, because it's going to be deja vu all over again.

MYTH - Texas will beat Oklahoma in Dallas.
I have no idea. I'll be 15 beers deep, face down in some grassy patch of road in Columbia. Chances are, most of you will be too.

MYTH - Talk of a playoff will heat up by Thanksgiving, led by the SEC Presidents.
Aint gonna happen. NU OGIC Harvey Pearlman and his merry band of white collared, orange jacket wearing, sponsor slurping bowl buddies will never ever ever let it happen. Not 2008. Not 2011. Not 3065. Never ever ever. It would be great...but stop talking about it.

MYTH - John David Booty will win the Heisman
The guy is one hell of a quarterback. However, I think the voters across the nation are getting a bit weary of USC players. Granted, that 604 yard game against NU in September will help, a tough Pac-10 schedule will grind him back to the pack. For some reason, it seems to me that it's about time for a dark horse candidate separates from the pack. Limus Sweed perhaps?

MYTH – The White Stripes are the best band in America
Truth – The White Stripes are the worst band since Chilliwak in 1981, and suck with the force of a million Hoovers.

MYTH – The Huskers will win 10 games.
Fact – The Huskers will lose to Wake, USC, Texas, Missouri, A&M, K-State and Colorado.

MYTH – Florida State, Penn State and Notre Dame are back.
Throw Nebraska in with this bunch. This collection of has beens haven’t been a factor in quite some time. When Rutgers is a hair away from a BCS game, you know there are problems. Although I agree that big name schools use their names to get bigger recruits…the fact that people believe these teams can just throw their pads on the field and dominate once again is insane. Dusty trophies (presumably ones you didn’t make up) and faded “Back to Back” t-shirts have never won a damn game. Ever.

MYTH – “It must suck being a Missouri fan about now”
Kirk Farmer was Mizzou’s quarterback 7 years ago. The defense rests. (Side note, Farmer actually had some decent games against Nebraska in his day..until somebody broke his leg. Dude had the bone structure of Estelle Getty. )

MYTH - This blog will shut down after this season.
If I win the lottery, you people are the last ones I’m thinking about.

MYTH – UNO hockey will have a great year
Dunno. I’m putting my allegiance to UNO hockey on hold until they can prove to me they can put a quality product on the ice. If I wanted to watch a shitty product on the ice year in and year out, I’d move to Bowling Green Ohio. Michigan still sucks though.

MYTH – USC will beat Nebraska by 31 points on September 15th.
Wrong. USC will beat Nebraska by 40 points on September 15th.

MYTH - The Cubs will make the playoffs this year.

Only if Rosie O'Donnell poses for Playboy this year and caps it off by publicly swearing off doughnuts for a year. (God I hate the Cubs)

MYTH – Omaha media types will continue their idiotic whining about not being picked 1st in the North this year.
Actually, this is true. Funny how last year the poll was a great gage as to how the season goes..and suddenly this year…EVERYBODY is an idiot for voting that way. DESPITE WHAT FEELINGS OF YOURS HAVE BEEN HURT IN THE PROCESS, NOT EVERYBODY RECOGNIZES YOUR GREATNESS. How many frick’n times do I have to tell you that.

And the war goes on.

PS - Did anybody else know the Mythbusters girl really looked like this? Ummm, I didn't.

"Nebraska is going to get absolutely sodomized by Wake Forest in week #2."

Really? Far be it from me to believe that we absolutely destroy Wake in this game (which there is a good possibility of that occuring), but us getting "sodomized" by them? Granted, it's a road game to a region we haven't traveled to in a while, if ever, but to think the Deacs beating us by some grand margin, let alone at all, makes JP's comment hold true. Keep sucking on that crack pipe.

A lot of NU fans look at this game as a potential "trap game" where we have a slight possibility to lose (note I said "possibility") but not get ass raped. Oh, and the whole "This isn't supposed to happen to us" look kinda died off in the past six years due to us getting humbled by our own conference bretheren so that shouldn't be problem.

AJ,

How about some consistency? Are we going 6-6 or 7-5? On Return of Ralphie, you have us at 6-6 with K-State upsetting us in Lincoln as a lock, but on Myth Busting you don't have us losing to them. How the hell am I going to make my $125,000 in Vegas with your picks? Just bring the damn season on so I can come on here and laugh at you and Fred...

Here's the thing AJ, your blog makes you look like the homeless guy on the corner proclaiming the end of the world is near. Maybe one day it will end, but probably not in your lifetime. Some day you're going to wake up and realize you're waisting your time trying to convince people of it while it appears to everyone else that you must have some type of mental illness. So, while it's kinda funny to watch you wait for the demise of the Nebraska Football program, it's kinda sad too. I hope you can find help because it's not going to end anytime soon.

Fear? Did you say Fear?

You used to beat teams 60-0, you used to run for 400 yards a game and you were in the top 5 in offense every year for like the past 30.

And THIS is what I'm supposed to be afraid of? Are you on crack? Seriously...Is it going to be up to ME to remine YOU how good your old teams were?

This is not your old teams. Those teams are dead...long gone. You're Penn State now, and NOBODY..and I mean NOBODY fears you. NOBODY.

PS - Wow, a Husker fan who didn't like the blog and refered to me as a homeless person. How original. I've never ever had that happen...

"Bonne Terre (MISSOURI) North County outside linebacker Will Compton has been looking over numerous scholarship offers and heavily considering schools such as Nebraska, Missouri, Illinois, Iowa and Notre Dame, but in the end he felt that the opportunity for possible early playing time and the overall visit experience helped make the decision for one school – Nebraska."

Big Surprise. Gary Pinkel loses another 4-star recruit from his own backyard and AJ's waxes poetically about how Callahan guts the NU program like a fish. My friend, after Solich pissed all over himself NU's program needed to be cleaned and deboned. You know that deep down. Don't you?

Solich only had one team that had a worse record than Callahan's best team. Callahan has yet to have a better record than the 10-3 record Solich had the year he got fired. Considering that the Big 12 North (and the Big 12 overall) was better when Solich was coaching, it's clear that Nebraska is currently no better off than they were in 2003. Let's compare records.

Ok. So all coaching changes are the same. Every coach comes into the same situation where he has the same level of talent in the program and the same degree of difference between his philosophy and the prior regime's philosophy.

Let me help you. Context: the set of facts or circumstances that surround a situation or event; "the historical context"

I love the site, visit it often, but as soon as you wrote K-State will march into Lincoln and win, you lost me...

I've understood the point of your site is to infuriate Husker fans, get them all fired up, and then make fun of them when they do. Bravo. Much like shooting fish in a barrel.

I'm sure somewhere out there on the web, there's some displaced Nebraska native living in St. Louis in Kansas City with a site dedicated to how arrogant and elisist Missouri fans are, going on and on about how many national titles they've won. If you can find a link, pass it on.

And before you pull out the "if you hate me so much, why do you hit my site so much" card, I'll answer. You're a good writer, but you are really grasping at straws with your material. Write less, your blog will be better.

Fan of Bill Callahan or not, as of last season (after 3 1/2 years of Callahan recruits) we are UNRANKED and that is a fact. Prediction polls don't count. Now how does that make ME a FAKE??

Can anyone tell me what kind of Husker , or how a person anywhere in Nebraska, would get away with referring to Husker Hall of Famer Frank solich as 'pissing on the program'???

Only a nobody who only has the balls to write anonymously on the INternet, at least when his parents aren't looking anyway.

When you heard the news that Will Compton committed to the Huskers, what was your spin angle on why Mizzou is better off without him? Was it the 'well, he's not a character guy and we didn't really want him' spin or was it the 'well, he's never really shown anything anyway and he's probably just a nice D2 player' spin or was it the 'who gives a shit about recruiting ratings, Pinkel is a master at picking up the guys that aren't highly rated and turning them into stars'. I know you are creative so it could be entirely different.. like 'we are so stocked at LB that he never would have seen the field with our awesome D anyway' or, maybe even go with the 2 for 1 and drop down a 'Compton and Gabbert are butt buddies and nobody felt comfortable showering with them' spin...Losing 2 of the top 3 in state recruits to the Huskers has to sting a bit.. just a bit... right?

Ok..to the guy who said I suck because I said K-State was going to win in Lincoln....You must not have been reading this blog for too long..or you would figure out long ago that I SUCK at predictions.

If you're going to Vegas with any of this stuff, then that's your own problem. My job here is to a) Piss off NU fans. b)Give you something to read instead of your TPS reports. I'm glad you visit..but if you're going to bitch about picks.....I mean good god...I accused Tom Osborne of watching Beastiality films...and a KSU prediction offended you?!?! Seriously...take a little break..come back in a week or so.

As for Randy and his whole Will Compton thing....I would be awfully mad and awfully pissed....If I wasn't sitting here waiting for every other "big time" recruit you've pulled in. Hell, you just lost TWO of your 2005 recruits who didn't amount to jack shit...menawhile two years ago....their names were right at the top of the brag list.

Does it suck? Sure..if he turns out to be good. But shit, he's a 17 year old kid..and the odds of him being some difference maker are 50/50 at BEST. You people have been bent over by Jeremy Crabtree and the Rivals empire for so long, you can't even see stright.

PS - How can you be pissed at KSU winning in Lincoln..and NOT PISSED OFF AT CU winning the whole damn conference?

Actually AJ, you missed my point. As soon as I saw you had K-State winning in Lincoln, I said you lost me. I didn't even finish the article and hit page down to comment... I really can't believe that even the most idiotic football fan would predict anything of consequence for Colorado this year. Unless you're doing it for the "NU fan hates Colorado more than anybody else, maybe I'll pick them..." response.

Sensationalism seems to be your calling card, and I'm sure most NU fans get red hot reading it. However, any readers with half a brain get tired of it. I read your blog because you have a caustic wit, and seem fairly informed, but once again, you update too much...not enough solid material besides "what can I say to fire up the rednecks today". I guess that's the point of your blog, but your takes on that ballwasher Matt Perrault and the whole CU/NCAA ticket mess were fairly fresh. More comments on local sports issues or Omaha altogether, but I guess that's for another blog.

By the way, that Mythbusters girl is one smoking hot piece of arse. Count me in.

BigRedFake,

Make up your mind. In another argument, you said that if it weren't for all of Solich's recruits, Callahan would have lost a lot more games, but now, in this argument, you want to lay the last 3 1/2 years on Callahan's recruits.... which is it? Can't have it both ways. The fact is, the first year (the 5-6 that you like to quote all the time) was pretty much all Solich recruits running in Callahan's offense. If you weren't looking at that season as a throw away, considering the level of change taking place, you might want to step away from the bong. Callahan's first real recruiting class (when he had more than 30 days to put one together) are just now going to be either juniors or redshirt sophmores, which is why you need to give him another season or two to show what he's going to give you.
Just out of curiousity, other than bring back Frank, what is your solution? Since I need to learn more, please enlighten me with your vast coaching experience. Maybe I'll see something new from you, rather than the same old 'Frank is God' speech... Frank got steamrolled in Boulder, the beginning of the end.. But, I suppose that is all Bohl's fault, right?

You lost me on the go play in the street to get some class thing.... is that where you went to school?

Oh, shit.. my mommy's calling me.. I'll try to sneak on later and check on your response.

OK...I update too much...I shouldn't make fun of Husker fans because it ruins my credibility...what else again?

Here's the deal...if you want credibility go to ESPN.com, CNNSI.com or any other actual sports website that isn't run by a guy who spends about 25 minutes every 3 days on a blog.

Seriously...and I don't mean this the wrong way...you're reading WAY WAY WAY too much into this blog. Of COURSE I was trying to piss them off. But here's the deal:

You and I BOTH know...EVERYBODY HERE KNOWS who I think is going to win the North. But do you think for a second that I'm going to actually throw that out there right now...sticking my neck out for a team who has been to 4 bowl games in my lifetime?

Ummmm....no.

So if not them..if not NU..then who? K-State? The problem is..they're obviously better than CU..or at least they were. I have no problem with that. However, CU has more history (somewhat) and is always the mystery wildcard in the bunch.

So if you want me to say who I REALLY think is going to win the north...I will. But mind you, everything I throw out here is printed for a reason. And no, that reason is not to use my extensive network of inside sources...although I do have more than you think.

Come here to laugh. Come here to roll your eyes. Come here to see what I'll say next. Come here to call me an a-hole. It's up to you. But you really really really are setting yourself up to be dissapointed if you come here for news.

I'm no more informed than you are about pretty much anything...I'm just more angry and can type faster.

It's not even fair to call it a fight.. I almost feel guilty, like I'm picking on the guy that walks around talking to himself (and no, he doesn't have a blue-tooth headset on, he's really having an entire conversation with himself). But, as long as the BigRedFake keeps spewing the same stupid shit, I'll keep calling it out. Despite his claim of a 50/50 split in the fanbase (my guess is, BigRedFake's boyfriend is a Callahan fan, so in his world, it's a 50/50 split) most Husker fans are behind the team. Yes, Fake, that was a homosexual reference and yes, I played the game and no, I've never been run out of a locker room for talking that way (not sure what locker rooms you've been in, but if you're not making fun of some dude's nutsack, it's probably because you are too busy staring at one).

As for the crying kid, I feel sorry for him, but if memory serves, that's from the blow-out in Boulder so it's a nice reminder of where we were already heading before BC so I'm okay with leaving him up there...

By the way, I don't really care to discuss football with you, and, I sure don't care to play the name calling game where the winner in your book is who uses the most animated off color locker room reference.

I would suggest you try to make some progress in this thing called life though. If your parents are already through raising you, there is still hope.

BigRedFraud (I like JP's moniker for you better),

As I think I've said numerous times, I'm not a Solich hater, but you can't sit here and ignore the facts around him either. It doesn't matter that Tom hand picked him, I'm sure it's not the first personnel decision that he made that didn't work out.

Solich was at the helm when the "mystique" was blown off the program in Boulder. In his last 2 seasons with the Huskers he went 16-10, is that the standard that you are expecting Callahan to match?

I asked my mom to add some numbers for me and it turns out Callahan is 17-9 in his last 2 seasons...

Goo goo.. gah gah, beeeoootch.
