A pretty decent opening night of major football - Texas A&M started things off destroying a South Carolina team that didn't... have a defense?
Tonight the Big Ten game is Michigan State vs Jacksonville State, a game that won't be that good, really, but it does feature another team called the Gamecocks, so be prepared for a lively game thread. Colorado State vs Colorado is always good for old memories and everyone at that game will be stoned, and the chances for a riot are good.
Speaking of game threads, CN has a decent history of women who love their Huskers participating in our community. We want more, because, really who doesn't want more women?
Redvalley hasn't been shy about having a (different) Husker boyfriend every season (hussy), so I want to know from you women out there, who's your boyfriend this year?
If you're a guy, I'd guess you'd call it a favorite player/man crush, but guys look at things very differently than women... in other words, I know all the guys will pick Randy Gregory or Ameer Abdullah because they're the studliest.
So, who's your guy?
BTW, Rutgers held on to beat Washington State last night 41-38. Welcome to the Big Ten, Rutgers.
