Corn Flakes: Johnny The Jet And Ronnie Green

New, 13 comments

The first you know, the second you may not, but you probably should.

Ronnie Green will be installed as the new Harvey Perlman today, becoming the 20th Chancellor of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln in a ceremony this morning at 11 am. Y’all are invited, and you can even watch online.

This man will have more effect on your lives than the President of the United States. Is that a bold statement? I don’t think so. You’re either going to have a state full of well-educated people or you’re not, and it will be part of Ronnie Green’s duty to continue the mission of the University of Nebraska - to serve the people of the state of Nebraska in their pursuit of higher education.

YES, there is a university attached to the sports teams! It’s really important! It’s important for economy and it’s important in growing the minds that will allow us to sustain this consumption lifestyle that we, as humans, have established for ourselves.

Congratulations to Ronnie Green.

UNL | Study finds support for new forms of liquid water | Office of Research & Economic Development

In its gaseous state, water takes the form of vapor; as a solid, it can adopt at least 21 forms of ice whose molecular structure varies with the temperature and pressure surrounding it. But its most famous state – the liquid covering two-thirds of Earth’s surface and sustaining all life on it – has remained something of a mystery.

Johnny The Jet!

Here’s an interview I did with Rodgers in 2007, when I asked him about what was wrong with the football team, and about robbing that gas station.

Given that we have the most massive gob of recruits ever, there’d better damned well be a huge crowd. Who’s going?

And more....

Johnny talks about “what has to happen” for Nebraska to get back to winning.

And because we need more videos...

Every time Skip Bayless says something dumb, his sad TV ratings get thrown in his face -

Every time he says something dumb, his TV ratings get thrown in his face.

This should say - “Every time he says something” because everything he says is dumb. Bayless falls into the “just because they’re trying to feed you shit doesn’t mean you have to eat it” category of television. I’m glad no one watches him. No one should be paying attention to him on any media platform.

Then There’s This

The Masters is this week, apparently. I’m not a golf guy. I don’t play golf. I don’t watch golf (I have no idea why anyone would WATCH golf, honestly), but these sounded like fun, so they’re here.

Golf movies, ranked -

The ones we’ve seen, plus other pieces of media.

I agree with the author. It’s Caddyshack, and then nothing else. I commented that “Falling Down” should be #2 just for that scene where Michael Douglas shoots the golf cart and causes the old dude in the stupid hat to have a heart attack.

What is your worst golfing experience? -

The SB Nation staff is telling you ours so that you’ll tell us yours.

I don’t recall any incidents where I hit the ball and injured someone (or myself). I usually could hit the ball pretty straight. It didn’t go a long ways, but for someone who played golf every once in a while, I did decent.

Worst experiences.... being told not to pull my pants down again on a course in Denver. Flying out of a golf cart early in the morning and landing directly on my head when my old college roommate executed a bootlegger turn - it was a good thing I was partially hungover, partially smashed so my body wasn’t tense when this happened, otherwise I would have broken my neck.

You guys?
