Corn Flakes: Nebraska's Chances And Shawn Eichorst Paranoia

The vast majority of pundits are picking Wisconsin to win this weekend, at least by this list compiled by HuskerMax. Not surprising, given most pundits picked Wisconsin to win the west, and you have to stick to your guns when you get the chance.

One thing about that list - not a whole lot of national pundits listed there. That's where both these teams have fallen recently - out of the national spotlight.

ESPN's Football Power Index gives Nebraska a 47.2% chance of winning and betting lines favor Wisconsin by a point or 1.5 points depending upon whose line you're looking at.

Nebraska

T.W.I.S., where Nebraska fans are so mad at Mike Riley, they're getting less drunk - SBNation.com

Look at these facts and tell me if I am nuts or cracked the reasoning of this hire. FACTS. SE was born and raised in Wisconsin SE and his family were big Badger fans and still have season tickets to this day. SE played Div. 2 college football in Wisconsin SE was the assistant athletic director and director of football operations at the University of Wisconsin. While at Miami, SE wanted Paul Chyst as coach. Talks fell through

Take a look at this week's TWIS. HOLY SHIT. Nice to see that CN made the list, mostly because a whole lot of other teams were removed from competition this week, but dear lord they certainly picked out the posting from HM that reflected some of the most paranoid tinfoil hat wearing thinking I've seen in a while.

We should really have fun with this. This level of paranoia deserves photoshops. I resolve to get better at that and unleash utter stupidity on all of you.

tl;dr

Shawn Eichorst was purposefully put in place to destroy the Nebraska program by Barry Alvarez so that Wisconsin could have an easier path to win the Big Ten West on an ongoing basis.
