And then you can be thankful that we have the fans we have at Nebraska.
Things are a little nuts at Kansas State, now that Ron Prince is out. The KSU Rivals.com site, gopowercat, announced that TCU’s Gary Patterson would be the next head coach at KSU, really exciting stuff until Gary Patterson got a little miffed. Now he’s not going there. Or maybe he is. Who can tell at this point in the season?
Keep an eye on Bring on the Cats for what’s happening with the Wildcats.

You’ve probably figured this out already, but it’s pretty certain the BCS National Title game will feature the Big 12 versus the SEC. Alabama/Florida versus Texas Tech/Texas/Oklahoma. The two best conferences battling it out - you don’t think the TV guys want that? Don’t you?
All the focus is on the Big 12 South because of the high rankings, but the Big 12 North could end up a logjam.
Chaos. I like chaos, which is probably why I love college football sooooo much!!!
