College football started last night as Georgia State beat Abilene Christian 38-37, making a field goal with seven seconds left. Georgia State snapped a 16-game losing streak dating back to October 13th, 2012. Their last win at home was on November 19th, 2011.
Foreshadowing to a wild football season? You betcha!!!!
Changes? You betcha!
New sound system in Memorial Stadium! Wifi access for your mobile devices! Better TV systems!
And changes to the TUNNEL WALK! WHAT COULD THEY BE?
Well... here's some suggestions from the CN Staff:
Kate Upton will be leading the team onto the field this season because why the hell not?
Unicorns run out and the biggest impales the opposing team's mascot, then carries him for a lap around the field!
Eric Crouch gives Eulogy for visiting team as they enter Tom Osborne field.
They start it off with a video board replay of Bo's inspirational 2011 Ohio St game rant against everyone.
They call a ticket number out & the lucky fan is taken/dragged by security to the 50 where he or she proceeds to get his or her ass whipped by Chuck Liddell as the team runs on the field.
Dress Brandon Rigoni up like Tyrion Lannister to lead the team down the tunnel. Then he can offer Kate a 1000 crowns to bed her.
"Sirius" out. "Real American" by Derringer in. Pretty sure Hulk's available for the walkout. "WHEN IT COMES CRASHIN' DOWN & IT HURTS INSIDE!..." Let's do this.
Gregory walks into the visitors locker room, makes eye contact with the biggest guys and pisses on the floor without looking away - a la Crazy Eyes from Orange is the New Black.
I think it would be a disservice to the memory of the Ultimate Warrior to not run out of the tunnel to this music.
Bonus points for Bo wearing Warrior face paint.
Then there's this thing, but I'm not a rap guy:
And the last suggestion, in just before publish:
I was thinking something by Carpenters would be appropriate. Maybe "Close to You" or "Top of the World"?

Nebraska Cornhuskers, Michigan Wolverines still have tickets to sell - ESPN
Nebraska, which has sold out an NCAA-record 333 straight football games over 52 seasons, is still selling football tickets for five of seven games this fall. As of late Tuesday, about 150 student season-tickets remained unsold -- a figure that has dropped significantly over the past week as fall-semester classes began.
At least one Husker player isn't too happy about it:
If our student section leaves 100 tickets unsold and ruins this streak I'll be shoving random freshman on campus into bushes at random— Hector (@StepDaddyFinnin) August 28, 2014
