Well..... interesting weekend, wasn't it?
I think we could all use to back it down a little bit this week. We got two good verbal commitments yesterday, and there (shouldn't, knock knock) be any big news till this time next week when Nebraska finds out where they will go for their bowl game.
Sunday night, Husker Volleyball got the number 8 national seed in the 2014 NCAA Volleyball Tourney. This does mean that the Devaney Center will be hosting the first 2 rounds as Nebraska is a top seed. Tickets go on sale this morning at 8am through Huskers.com.
I know I said above that we wouldn't try to stir the pot about Pelini's issues from this weekend, but this OWH piece doesn't help things. When you quote BoR guys, boosters, and such... yea. Pot stirred.
Meanwhile, Tom Shatel says that even though Shawn Eichorst's actions are odd, you can really take them at face value.
In non-Bo news, Steve Sipple talks about how Ameer Abdullah deserves the Big Ten Rushing crown. And I agree, with no disrespect to Carlos Hyde or James White. To do what Ameer did with the injuries at OL and QB ineffectiveness, what he did this year was amazing.
For his effort on Friday versus Nebraska, Iowa LB Christian Kirksey was named the Walter Camp National Defensive POW.
I love when people force feed rivalries. JP Scott of Know It All Football is trying to do this, based on the Iowa win last weekend. You can't force the rivalry, as you can't want to force Nebraska to be Wisconsin's rival or anyone else.
A lot of us are thinking the Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl here at CN, but the national folks think more into Texas.
In an order to save his job, Paul Rhodes gutted a few of his offensive guys from Iowa State. Meanwhile, Dave Christensen was asked to leave his office with his things in Wyoming. Finally, Brent Pease and Tim Davis was given walking papers by Will Muschamp in Florida.
I can only go by what is said here, but Art Briles really, REALLY pissed off Gary Patterson.
We got a couple of front runners for the USC job. Honestly, these are two guys that I can't see leaving their schools for Los Angeles.
There is one guy that won't be in those talks, however. Kevin Sumlin is staying at Texas A&M for a while folks.
It's Ohio State vs. Michigan State Saturday in Indy for the Big Ten Title, and the Buckeyes ticket to the BCS title game. If there are players suspended for OSU, it will be by the B1G Conference and not by Urban for that big fight in Ann Arbor Saturday.
Missouri vs. South Carolina in the SEC title game. If you called this, you're a damn liar.
From Peyton beating KC in Arrowhead, to a mockery of the rules by Jeff Triplett Sunday night, here's your NFL round up for the weekend.
In unfortunate news, a person was killed in the parking lot at Arrowhead Stadium on Sunday evening during the Den/KC game as he broke into someone's vehicle. Combine that with a Cowboys fan being jumped by Raiders fans outside ATT Stadium on Thursday night, and the issue of safety outside NFL stadiums is becoming a big, big issue.
I'm trying to figure out how Amazon is going to pull this one off.
Jay-Z rocked Pinnacle Bank Arena. He rocked it so hard that the damn lights went out.
Today is "Bifocals at the Monitor Liberation Day", which Jon is going to celebrate by partnering it with National Pie Day. EAT A PIE FOR CHARITY FOLKS.
The song of the day? Happy birthday Treach.
Enjoy your day folks.
