(BO)rn to Pout

You’ll have to forgive me today, as I’m battling a few injuries. First is the sore thumb from flipping back and fourth between ESPN and Texas Tech’s near meltdown, and second is the sore stomach from laughing at the uncontrollable rectal bleeding that was the Nebraska defense on ESPN. All in all though, a pretty entertaining night in terms of setting up for the end of the season.

With that being said, I’m (of course) not surprised you got your brains beat in by the Sooners. OU is angry, and arguably physically better than Texas (just not on one day in Dallas). You were smacked early and you were smacked often...and yes, I found it extremely funny. However, I do have a few deeper observations of your team that are really starting to come into focus.

First, Bo Pelini has your team playing at least a tad harder than the GRF© did last season. You see guys running hard toward the football, and not heading back to the huddle with their heads hanging to their knees. For that, you got what you wanted…a guy who will bring “passion” back to Nebraska football.

What you didn’t count on is the absolute embarrassment and childish crybaby that Bo Pelini brings to your team that is unlike any football coach seen in these parts since…well…since ever. Whether it’s the tear-fueled hissy fits he has during the games, or the EXTREMELY tired, “This is my fault..blame it on me” mantra that he now uses for every single loss, this dude is in WAY over his head. He obviously knows what he’s doing in terms of motivating and getting guys in the right spot, but he reminds me of Gunther Cunningham in the way he completely loses his mind in the face of any sort of adversity whatsoever.

But that not withstanding, here’s where your life gets real interesting: Will Pelini be able to grow up in time to right your ship? At what point is his “passion” going to make you a laughing stock? Pulling your players away from reporters after the game and pouting all the way to the bus? Staring down your own reporters who want to know why you just got completely destroyed? Take your beating like a man, and stop trying to be somebody you’re not…which is an inexperienced leader of men who at least at the moment, has no clue of how to take the punches that get thrown at him.

Second, Your entire season has been saved by, ironically enough..the Colorado Buffaloes. I’m not sure what the hell Dan Hawkins is thinking, but it looks like we’re going to have a repeat of 2004, when the Buffs and Huskers met on the Friday after thanksgiving in Lincoln to see who is going to a bowl, and who is going home. Dan Hawkins has seemingly waved the white flag on offense with his QB rotation (unless it somehow gets better over the next few weeks), and yes..even you can probably stop their attack. (Especially with their best player busting his leg yesterday.) But regardless of 6 wins, I still think Sharp and Reesing are going to be WAY too much for you to handle next week. Shreveport is lovely this time of year I hear.

Sandwiched in the middle of those two games, K-State hosts you in their Super Bowl, which certainly isn't an environment that you normally handle very well. This won’t be a disinterested Texas Tech team looking past you. K-State hates your guts, and despite having ZERO defensive abilities, they can actually move the ball. They’ll also (possibly) be playing for Ron Prince’s job…or at least job security. If you think that game is going to be some sort of cakewalk, you’re crazy.

Oh, and one more thing: Remember when Missouri fell behind behind Texas big at the half, and the whole lot of you nearly pissed yourself laughing and commenting here at the “total destruction” of the Mizzou program? Hmmmm...35-0 sound familiar? Let’s see how the ministers of spin do with this one. (If you’ve read Tom Shatel this morning..you already know the answer to that one.) Not that it means a whole lot…I just want to point out that I love the smell of hypocrisy in the morning..and right now…it’s looking to get pretty thick around here.

Either way, your team sucks and isn’t getting much better. Ho Hum.

**
Lots of people are ready to give Texas Tech the National Title today after an amazing contest opposite of your public colon pounding. Tech played outstanding on defense early, but the Horns seemed to figure them out later on. As impressive as Graham Harrell’s drive at the end of the game was…you gotta wonder a couple of things. First, if that dude picks off that batted ball on the drive, the game is over and UT cruises into Kansas City with a trip to Miami on the line. Instead, Tech rolls down the field, and takes advantage of one of the worst defensive plays I’ve ever seen. I mean…you KNOW they’re going to Crabtree. You KNOW they’ve run that back shoulder play over and over. HELL, you had double coverage on the guy. And then when he does catch it you just let him waltz into the end zone?

Texas Tech is extremely talented as I’ve told you since back in July. However…as we saw in their near choke job against the Hicks a few weeks ago, they are not the most mentally sound group ever to hit the field. They did everything they could to choke that game away last night and nearly did so. With OU in Norman and Okie State at home next week…I would be shocked..yes SHOCKED if the Red Raiders wound up in Kansas City on December 6th.

It’s still Texas’ prize to lose. We’ll see how the rest of the year goes.

**

I’m sure 99% of you were huddled next to your Commodore 128’s yesterday afternoon as you listened to the webcast of Missouri taking on Baylor. Nice to see Missouri’s defense is still a major problem and pretty much the biggest reason why they’ve hopped in the back row of the national stage. However, two years ago, Mizzou loses that game easily. Robert Griffin seems to be improving by the game, and I’m telling you now..I am not looking forward to that guy coming to my team’s stadium next October.

Regardless, Baylor did was young teams do with a chance to win at the end…they panicked and made a major mistake, thus giving the more experienced team the victory. Missouri now has a wounded KSU team at home on Senior Day, and then a trip to Ames to take on an absolutely dreadful Cyclone team that will be looking to play out the string.

That puts Mizzou fans in the unusual position of quietly rooting for the Huskers next weekend. A KU loss to Nebraska coupled with a (near certain) loss to Texas in Lawrence, wraps up the North title for the Tigers. (if they can beat two of the lesser teams in the league.) I like Mizzou’s chances against KU on any field, but the ultimate goal now is the upset whomever the South sends to KC. If that game could somehow lose that meaning, it would be an awfully big burden off the shoulders of the Tigers.

**

I’m out of the country next week, so it’s going to get kinda quiet here. (Not that it should be too much of a as it is on days like today…another brutal and predictable Husker meltdown.) Something tells me it's going to be pretty quiet around here anyway.

AJ:

There is no F&^king pouting going on in Husker land.

The football team stepped on their own weasels in the first 5 minutes.
They know it and you don't need to make it a proclaimation. Keep in mind, they did not give up as some teams do in these situations.

OU is a superior team to the Huskers, this year anyway. That's the way it goes. They have been on the other end of a good old fashioned "behind the woodshed ass whipping" from the Huskers.

If your Tigers make it to the B12 Championship Game, be prepared to get back what you dish out on a regular basis.

I will be one of them. You can count on it!

Who watches the Army/Navy game???

The families who are in the Army/Navy maybe? Fucking dipshit. Were you actualy trying to argue that CBS puts on a game that no one watches??? Don't you think they put that fucking game on every year because it has ratings built into it?

-AJ-

You're routing for the Huskers because you want to seal up the north before playing the KU game? Can't you wait until the week of the MU/KU game to start pissing your pants?

Wha???

Dude, score comparisons are only SORT of applicable when two teams haven't faced each other to try to gauge how they match up. Nebraska and Mizzou HAVE matched up in LINCOLN, and Mizzou absolutely bitchslapped the Huskers. So to be clear, when an opponent anal rapes you in your own house, your shit-talking priveleges are COMPLETELY revoked till next year.

KU's last two trips to Lincoln have resulted in a 39-32 OT loss in 2006 and a 14-8 loss in 2004. In between those two, KU pounded the Nubbs at home....

I can't tell you the last time KU won in Lincoln, but after seeing how well we performed against KSU on Saturday, I would expect our boys to stroll into town with some confidence. Sharp and the run game are absolutely shredding Big 12 defenses so far.

This game is nearly a must-win for KU, as AJ pointed out. KU must win 1 of the next 2 for the Border Showdown to send the winner to the Big 12 championship game (I highly doubt Mizzou falters against KSU and ISU)....

AJ, you may be confident in beating KU "anywhere", but Mangino and CO. are due!

AJ,

Your blog is starting to suck. It is very dependant on the success of the Missouri Tigers and we all know how that is going. (3 point win @ Baylor. Are you fucking kidding?)

Why does your dumb ass compare Missouri getting blown out by Texas to Nebraska getting blown out by Oklahoma?

Did I fucking miss the part where this year's Nebraska team was on the cover of Sports Illustrated ranked in the "top 15", the best team in school history and lead by a "Heisman candidate"?

Believe me, it was much more enjoyable watching Missouri's "best team ever" get fucking stomped. I took pleasure watching all the bandwagon Missouri fans stare in shock when the Tiggers were getting that pussy pounded. You seem to be a dumb fuck, so let me explain.

Let’s look at Nebraska vs. Oklahoma. Nebraska is in a rebuilding year. (Probably not the best team in school history) Nebraska is not ranked in the top 25. Nebraska was 5-3, unranked; a double digit underdog playing on the road with a couple of key players injured. Do you really think the expectations were that high?

Contrast that with Missouri vs. Texas. Missouri was ranked #11, with an ex-Heisman candidate, a 5-1 record looking for redemption. Missouri fans went into the Texas game actually believing they had a chance to win and were then subjected to the methodical ass kicking at Texas. Missouri didn’t gift wrap 28 points like Nebraska. Missouri just straight up got fucking killed on both sides of the ball. That shit was funny!

I know, I know. “This is not a cheerleading blog about Missouri”, but your blog isn’t shit without Missouri being good, and they aren’t. “Best team in school history.” Missouri football is amazing!

(Is the crybaby picture supposed to be Chode Daniel after the Oklahoma State game or the Texas game? I guess it could have been the Nebraska game too.)

Husker fans like to talk trash like that. I remember when I was in Vegas in Jan. of '02 and the place was swarming with red-clad idiots. I was wearing a CU hat the day after the Rose Bowl and NU fans were coming up to me and saying "how bout them Ducks?" and crap like that. I would tell them: "listen, we got beat bad in the Fiesta Bowl and you got beat bad in the Rose Bowl, BUT WE BEAT YOUR #1 BCS-RANKED ASSES A FEW WEEKS AGO, YOU DON'T GET TO TALK TRASH!"

Dumbass nebraska fans...

"This blog thrives on Missouri being good...etc "

Couple of things there.

1) That's the dumbest fucking thing I've ever read on this blog, and it is fueled entirely on dumb comments.

2) Missouri has more wins on November 1st than they had in any single season between 1984 and 1997. Your definition of sucking is a little different than mine.

3) Yes, the MU-UT game was different in that they at least fought back.

4) This blog didn't start last week. It started in 2005, when Mizzou lost 5 games and barely made it to Shreveport.

That is truly, the most idiotic and dumbass thing I've ever read here..including the douche who tried to spin that NU winning by 12 makes them better than Mizzou winning by 3 over Baylor.

Fuck moral victories. A win is a win. But you are correct in the end. The blog does suck now because nobody gives a shit about a .500 team that used to be good 10 years ago.

1. Wow a new high for the blog. The number 1 & 2 “dumbest fucking thing you have ever read” posts in one week! Golf clap for your dumb hick ass.
2. I didn’t say Missouri sucked. Although Texas fans might disagree.
3. Did Missouri fight back against the 1st or 2nd team?
4. I thought you said this isn’t a Missouri cheerleading blog.

The dumbest thing I have read is when you say, “This isn’t a Missouri cheerleading blog”, then go on to tell us how Missouri has won more games this year than at any point in blah, blah fucking blah, blah.

This blog does suck and nobody gives a shit about Missouri, a team that has never been good. (Based on your definition of good) Good teams don’t get pounded like Missouri did at Texas or against Oklahoma last year. So, thump your sparrow chest about Missouri’s 7 wins against teams with a combined record of 28-33.

What Missouri does is irrelevant and secondary in the overall scheme of this blog. Please let me know if you need help with this concept or sounding out the big words.

PS - I'm well aware of the mathamatical improbability of hearing the stupidest fucking thing ever...twice in one week.

AJ did you get bitch slapped by some drunk obnoxious Husker fan prompting all this hatred?

I travel to several away games each year and have always been able to strike up a good football conversation with the opposing fans with one exception, Missouri.

Every team has asshole fans, I have seen them everywhere I have been including my home stadium bud. It's part of the sad world we all share.

So is that it, you were bitch slapped by Big Red Bubba who then bent you over a bar stool and had his way with you? Damn, that must have really been a pain in the ass.

About the beat down Saturday night. I expected a loss, it would have been nice to not spot them 35 points but what the fuck, if your going to step on your dick you just as well step on the whole dame thing at once!

About MU only beating Baylor by 3. Sorry Husker fans but we don't have the right to talk shit to AJ on this topic after the bitch slapping we took at home.

About KU, I am much more comfortable heading into this game now than I was prior to the massacre in Norman. I am confident that Bo and the boys will take the field as pissed off as Bob and his boys did Saturday night. Damn they were pissed!

The bottom line is MU will win the north this year and get another ass basting in the championship game by 1 of 4 South teams. And that sucks!

Sorry football fans but the prophet Osborn warned all the old Big 8 teams about this when the discussions were being held regarding the B12. The whole lot of you North pussies sat with your balls in Texas hands and let them stroke you into feeling good about this lop sided conference we have now. The North on national TV has been referred to as the Have Nots multiple times and that is exactly what we have become. And I do say we because Nebraska is right in the middle of the North stinkfest with the rest of you fuckstick Texas cock lovers. You should have stood by Dr Tom and told those ass holes who couldn't run a conference on their own to fuck off. Now we are all North pussies with 1 or two teams good enough yearly to be ass fucked in the championship by the have's in the South.

AJ, I know a good DR in Omaha that can help get you through this hate bud. Let me know and I will send you his name.

A couple maybe three points for knebraska fuckstick fans (a little pet name we have for you in Colorado):

1) I've been reading this blog -- which I absolutely love -- for almost a year. This line by aj may be the best that I've read and that's saying something. And I quote,

"Here's the bottom line: You used to be good. You were assholes about it. Now you suck and it's funny.

The end."

That really summs it up. Our hatred for you is not related to our love for our respective teams. I mean, I guess I hate you because you were such assholes about my Buffs but you've been assholes about everyone's team.

For whatever reason Mizzou fans and CU fans are more beligerant about it. Maybe it's the black and gold I don't know.

2) Fuckstick fans don't understand rivalries because they can't see the forrest for their colons. A rivalry is not about any of the following things:

a) t.v. ratings
b) what the two teams might be playing for -- BCS bowl, division championship etc.
c) who cares about the game outside the respective fan bases

All of those things can add to any given game but they are not the meat of a rivalry. The fact that fuckstick fans do not understand that concept shows how little real tradition they have.

Fuckstick fans you are CU's rival -- always will be. Whether or not you consider us one? We don't give a fuck. aj, We've got two of your five -- my favorite is "we have no respect for the traditions or program" -- that's us.

Our game in stinkin' could be rough but you had better not count us out. If we can find a way to piss in your cornflakes, know that we will.

If you can pull off a win in stinkin', enjoy. I know hawk and co. are struggling right now but this Buff team is full of young talent. I think It's going to be a bitch playing us in the next few years.

3) The only one's crying about the Big XII merger is fuckstick fans. You had bullshit advantages in recruiting because you would take any thug or criminal that could tackle or run with the ball. Tejas took that away from you and CU was happy to help them. This north vs. south stuff is cyclical so get over yourselves you bunch of whiny-ass bitches.

aj, you never fail to deliver. I expected you to start making excuses for the near loss to Baylor … the week after you ridiculed the Huskers for only winning by 12 points and totally shutting them out in the second half.

Last week Baylor was so bad they actually couldn't hold their lead over a bad Husker team. This week, Bayor is growing up and Griffin is a superstar in the making.

How much more of a hypocrite can you be?????

And you still insist on saying that Colorado is obviously better than Nebraska, despite the simple fact that they just lost to the worst team in the conference.

I know, I know, NU is in disarray after losing to a team no one gave them a chance of beating. 35-0 in the first quarter is a beat-down, no question.

On the other hand, outscoring the Sooners 28-27 over the last three quarters means absolutely nothing.

ok, heh heh heh heh heh heh

It's just to easy to point out what an idiot you truly are about college football, so I won't even bother.

Hey, buffalo Phil,
