A Quiet Year of Uncertainty
I’m not going to lie to you…I’m really struggling. After the mushroom cloud started to fade away in early October, and thousands of Husker fans were left speechless (and glowing from the radiation)…I figured the rest of the season would carry me through. I mean, wouldn’t there certainly be enough college football fodder out there to keep us going….even if Nebraska is so far off the sports radar right now, it’s not even funny?
Well, now that it's nearly over...apparently not.
Husker hoops have been non-existent since the early 90’s. Creighton would be a contender if they played in the SWAC. UNO hockey is in the toilet. The Lancers are 13 years old. The Chiefs suck. The Royals are 8 years away from .500. The College World Series may leave. Bo Pelini…well…nobody knows what the hell to make of Bo Pelini other than he wore a red polo for 4 months, and he managed to give up 34 points to a wretched Alabama team in a 60 minute regulation game.
So what the hell do we do now?
I’m going to be honest with ya…I have no idea what the next few months will look like..let alone 2008. I’m sure Bomopia will slowly build up prior to the Spring game…exploding into mild thoughts of…”Ya know..if we just get some freshman to contribute at linebacker…we may have a shot.”
No you don’t. You have no shot. You’re completely and totally screwed in every way shape and form imaginable. There is no next year. There is no “rebuilding process.” There is no order to restore…no faith to draw from. Just baseless…pointless self-promotion wrapped around a team so completely entrenched in it’s past, you’d give Harold Warp a run for his money.
On that happy note…enjoy your one last night of partying, before the dark and empty nights of January and February arrive. Unless some player gets drunk and punches a woman at a bar…this is going to be a long and lonely walk down a flat and barren road.
