The Reads: Faster than a Runza

Today's Reads are short and sweet, like a love affair with a Runza sandwich.

Another day, another Runza plug. I should get paid for this or something.

Nebrasketball lost by scoring fewer points than the other team. It was hard to watch but Tim Miles took the opportunities to coach up his team. Things are still looking up!

(Kentucky may take our players but hell if I'm going to let them take our sunshine!)

And so begins the death of the "non-profit" model. Score one for the little guys. Little by little, we'll kill the bowl system, y'all.

My theory? The Youngstown Mafia has an annual poker game that Pelini lost over Thanksgiving to Mark Stoops. He gambled away Marrow and the Cardinal Mooney pipeline.


Have you heard the word about Heard?

Braylon Heard to transfer |

The Husker coaches did approach Heard this offseason with the idea for him to take reps at receiver, according to the source. *facepalm*


Youngstown News, Position switch prompts Heard to transfer
Honestly not surprising. But if we send him to Kentucky, woof.


Update: Braylon Heard To..... Kentucky? Someone on Rivals Thinks So... - Corn Nation
As much as I would enjoy watching the meltdown, I really hope Heard doesn't go to Kentucky. I'm sure Ohio or Louisville need another RB, right?

Maybe this is why Braylon is transferring?

Ohio State, Michigan recruiting could kick off second 10-Year War -
We'll let their statistical analysis of comparing an AVERAGE of the rest of the conference versus Ohio State/Michgian seperately slide, because frankly, there's nothing new here. The little Ten of the conference need to step up their recruiting. (Sending one of your best recruiters to the SEC is not an example of this. Dumping an unproductive staff member, however, would be.)

From Brian last night...


Here's a thought to end today on:

I've decided Barney is the only thing holding us together. He gives us all something to agree on.

Insert witty retort here.

Pure wisdom.


That's all for today, everyone! Short and sweet, just like I promised!
