Wednesday's Corn Flakes

More turf updates, as well as a TV man making an hypocritical ass out of himself.


It's Wednesday. Slow sports day today. Matter of factly, probably one of the worst sports days of the year. However, SEC media days help pass the time. Lets get to it.

Kenny Bell was named onto the Biletnikoff Award Watch List on Tuesday. Even he was shocked by it:

The new turf is in, with something that I don't mind being on it.

One thing to point out, is that the turf won't look that bright when it comes to gametime. There is a rubber type pellet item that is spread onto the field to make it last longer and be softer, therefore darkening the final product.

Former Husker Alex Gordon did make a appearance in Left Field at the end of the Major League Baseball All Star Game in New York on Tuesday. In his lone plate appearance, he had a deep flyout to center.

This is also new to North Stadium.

Speaking of finishing touches on facilities before the season starts...

The first bite of what you'll get this season came out steaming in Birmingham, as SEC Media Days started for the world to see. From Gary Pinkel having Dad-hair, to Spurrier just not giving a righteous hell, it's all up there at the link, and it keeps going today.

There are a lot of jackasses on the TV that I can't stand on a typical CFB Saturday. Mark May is fully on the top of that list.

Mizzou fans are rude, James Franklin says. "NO S**T SHERLOCK" is what we all say.

You're right, Detroit needs another bowl game. And the Big 10 shouldn't be involvDAMNIT.

Ron Zook would have been the PERFECT selection for Nebraska's Recruiting Coordinator, that is if the rules that were suspended came to fruition. Instead, he works at a bank.

Iowa has finally found their baseball head coach, as Indiana State's Rick Heller was hired finally. He had spent the last three years with the Sycamores, winning the Missouri Valley title in 2012. Personally, I don't think the hire is worth anything, but I'll let James chime in as he's the guy who is the knowledgeable one of this.

For those of you heading to West Lafayette, the boys over at Hammer and Rails did a fantastic piece on where to go when visiting Purdue.

I've never seen or read the Hunger Games, sosomeone explain this to me please.

Speaking of the ASG, the American League finally won a game, so it'll be nice to see the Rangers host Game 1 of the World Series this year. And they got the MVP correct too.

Keith Olbermann is coming back to TV, as he and ESPN will agree to terms in an announcement today. This couldn't possibly go wrong, could it?

Team USA finished the group stage of the CONCACAF Gold Cup perfect, as Brek Shea got the winning goal in a 1-0 win over Costa Rica.

You know the British Open is this weekend, right? Well, now you do.

David Hasselhoff, Luke Bryan, Donald Sutherland, Ryan Miller, and Carey Hart celebrate birthdays today.

Disneyland opened on this day in 1955, while Joe DiMaggio's 56 game hitting streak ended today in 1941.

Someone didn't want too much guitar in the daily song. Okay, here ya go.

The Davey O'Brien watch list will come out later this morning, and the podcast will be up later today.

Have a great day everyone.
