Bracket Challenge

We are doing a Bracket Challenge. I'll be giving away a Corn Nation t-shirt. Not much of a prize, really, but there are rules and stipulations and all that shit. We'll have a formal post on it once I assemble all that and put it together in a package as required.

This is a pool on Yahoo, where all our contests will be run, per legal.

Nebraska's N-Sider put out a short video about new Nebraska Defense Against Dark Arts secondaries' coach Charlton Warren!

"That sounds like two friggin' pillows hitting! It's tackle, we have pads on! Hit!" - Coach Warren

Appropriate that we have a former Air Force officer in charge of securing the air space of our defense, right?

(*crickets*)

Anyways, Steve Sipple reports that Warren's transition is going smoothly. ($)

Some player quotes:

"He says he feels like Santa - he'll give you a little break," [LeRoy] Alexander said. "But then on the third or fourth mistake, he'll bring out the military background. He'll take the hat off, and then you'll hear his voice get really deep, and he'll start yelling.

Said sophomore safety Nathan Gerry: "I didn't know if he was going to be one of those hard-ass, strict kind of guys. But he's a good guy. He communicates well."

So I guess we'll see if the players still like him in December, eh?
