Tuesday's Corn Flakes

News on B1G Title game tickets, conference recruiting rankings, and media days news galore.


Welcome to your Tuesday morning. I asked in yesterday's flakes what inspired you all yesterday.

No answers. Disappointing.

On to today, lets see if it's better, shall we?

The Cleveland Plain Dealer did their annual Big Ten media poll, with Ohio State was the unanimous choice to win the entire conference. Michigan was picked to win the B1G West over Nebraska. The folks that picked Nebraska to win the West also unanimously picked the Buckeyes to beat the Huskers in Indianapolis. Ohio St swept the preseason player of year poll, with Braxton Miller taking the offensive side while Ryan Shazier was picked as the defensive POY. I wasn't surprised about Taylor Martinez not being voted anywhere near POY on offense, but one vote. Woof.

In your weekly B1G recruiting rankings, Nebraska is seventh at Rivals, eighth at 247, and ninth at elevenwarriors. I will save you the stress of the national rankings for now.

Speaking of recruiting and Nebraska, a nice interview with Husker CB verbal Trai Mosley from Wescott Eberts of SBN.

For those of you interested in buying tickets for the B1G Title game on December 7th in Indianapolis, tickets go on sale this Saturday. Who knows, you may just show up and get asked to be a seat filler. I always wonder who the hell would have the stones to try a prank like this.

Oh look, it's Nebraska week at Off Tackle Empire. That'll be a theme, just you watch.

Former Husker DT Chase Rome has a home, and that is Memphis. He would probably be doing very well this year on the line, but he won't be, so happy trails to him. ($)

Well, this isn't really appealing.

Speaking of off-field transgressions, not a good weekend at Ohio State. Carlos Hyde had issues at a downtown Columbus dance club, and Bradley Roby done punched a bouncer. Also, a Middle Tennessee St player did bad things to his GF, but his team mates did something just as bad.

Charlie Weis got a multi million dollar contract from Notre Dame and won a Super Bowl ring with the Patriots, right? So whatever he says is probably true about Kansas, especially his recruiting pitch.

This whole ejecting players for hard hits stuff is going to be done so badly it's cringing when it's still five plus weeks before a game. Mike Pereira (the same guy who said the Kenny Bell hit was illegal) says Jadeveon Clowney's hit in the Outback Bowl was worthy of an ejection. Hope you all like soccer.

Can Fox Sports 1 rival College Gameday this year? Probably not, but shipping out Erin Andrews to try doesn't hurt anyone really.

Who says that Brady Hoke doesn't have a heart? Well, he does, and this will make you smile.

Big 12 media days in Dallas is a thing, and the two biggest items to come from seems to be the new B12 logo, as well as the conference deciding to show other game highlights in their stadiums. Mack Brown and Bob Stoops talk today, if you're keeping score. Also, if you're interested in ACC media days, SBN had coverage of that too.

The biggest story of the day was Milwaukee Brewer Ryan Brawn getting unpaid vacation for the rest of the year, primarily for testing for PED's and lying to all our faces about it.

The Rangers got Matt Garza from the Chicago Cubs for a boatload of AAA/AAAA talent, most notably Mike Olt and Justin Grimm. Texas folk think that Jon Daniels can resign Garza after this year, while the Cubs rebuilt some of the farm system that was decimated.

Denver Broncos LB Von Miller is also facing a suspension for bad things in his body, although it's only a four game ban.

Today's birthdays include Daniel Radcliffe, Slash, Marlon Wayans, Monica Lewinsky, Stephanie Seymour and Phillip Seymour Hoffman.

Let Randy Travis take you into the day, folks.

(thanks Randytravis)

Have a good day everyone.
