The Reads: Twenty and a Vacation

We did it! Twenty recipes! - David McGee

With letters signed and sealed, we officially enter a dead period for football news. Sounds like a good time for a vacation, don't you think?

Let's start by congratulating the women's basketball team who secured win #7 for Nebraska in the All Sports NU Trophy campaign by beating Northwestern 55-50. The Nebraska women held off a second half comeback by the Wildcats with both Jordan Hooper and Lindsey Moore broke the 1500 career points mark in the victory. (And a round of applause to you all for stepping up and following the women in your own FanPost.)

Nebraska's first attempt to secure win #8 and the trophy comes in Tennis on the 9th and 10th. Nebraska must win both the Men's and Women's match ups.

Alright, before we end for the week, I just wanted to let you all know that I will be taking some time off from CN. I'm taking a two week vacation to clear my head and recharge from the season. But don't worry - Jon and the rest of the staff will be helping to fill in the gaps.

When I return, we'll start cooking. Won't that be fun? Keep those recipes coming in though! We'll have to come up with some stretch goals.

So until I return, here's hoping Nebraska baseball starts off strong in California, Nebrasketball finishes off the season with a flourish (BEAT INDIANA) and other things go well.

GO BIG RED.

- Salt Creek and Stadium

PS - I am really going to be gone for two weeks. Please take care of yourselves and I'll see you soon.
