We've been away for awhile and now we're back again.
So it goes.
Just in time for Corn Flakes for supper! Don't tell me you've never done that! I won't believe you anymore than I wouldn't believe you've ever contemplated making jello and mixing it with peas to form a jello salad!
Consider this your open thread for the night!!!
DON'T FORGET TO JOIN THE CN BOWL PICK 'EM AND MAKE YOUR PICKS TONIGHT!!!
I'll be giving away four CN t-shirts to the top four winners, although I haven't had that completely cleared through legal yet.
This time of year is about celebration and family. However there are many people who aren't as fortunate, or are in need of a little boost.
Check this out! 247Sports has set up a donation for a Nebraska vs Georgia Food Bank Drive.
The Big Ten provided a few glimpses into its bowl process this year. The bowl lineups will change in 2014 as part of the college football playoff. Conferences will likely have more sway in the selection process. For this last rotation of the BCS era, the bowls have the contractual right to pick a team. That's why Michigan is headed to the desert and Nebraska isn't.
Interesting glimpse into this year's bowl selections.

Because you needed to see a jello mold of Nick Saban's head. Doesn't have any fruit or vegetables in it that I can see. What a waste.
This is exactly what makes him special and one of the reasons I believe Tim Beck should jettison the spread (read option) offense and turn to a pro style offense if Stanton gets the nod. I understand offensive coordinators normally don't scrap an entire offensive scheme for one player. But in this case, it would be in Beck's best interest to do so. There are so many options a quarterback with great mechanics and hidden speed can provide in a pro style offense.
I'm not sure what to say about this. We haven't even seen Stanton hit the field yet and like any quarterback in that position, he's the greatest thing ever.
Brown added this today on twitter:
I'm a big fan of quarterback mechanics & footwork. Big reason why I don't like watching the spread (read option) offense.— Ralph D. Brown II (@RalphDBrown) December 20, 2013
So, basically he doesn't like the spread offense.

With Target already reeling from a massive hack that left up to 40 million credit and debit cards compromised, The New York Times now reports that all that data has been pouring into the black market...
Mrs CN is more than pissed off. She should be. Target couldn't have fucked this up any worse than they already have.
