Good morning everyone. Jill’s got things to do, and I am in charge of your Flakes this morning. Normally I would have been up earlier to do them, but it’s the Summer in Texas, which means it never gets below 78-79 degrees in the evening time.
That’s fine and dandy for those that hate winter, but when you have a East facing bedroom, the cycle of heat and cold with the Air Conditioner kicking on makes for sometimes an unpleasant sleep cycle.
Anyhoo, on to today’s news:

LJS: Movie Night to follow Fan Day - For the first time, after the Nebraska Football staff & team sit out in the heat all day to sign autographs, there will be a reason to stay. With the new big screen in North Stadium, the AD found a way to show it off!
We asked, you answered.— Nebraska Huskers (@Huskers) July 17, 2017
The Lego Batman Movie is our movie Night at Memorial Stadium feature following Fan Day.
For those grumping about wanting “a better movie”, it’s got to be kid & fam friendly you goobers!
Steve Sipple/LJS: Ex- Huskers advice to Freshmen: Prepared to be knocked down a peg - It is interesting to see Jeremiah Sirles’ thoughts on having to go against a Ndamukong Suh in his first Fall Camp. And, it’s good noting that every kid when they get to any college goes through this.
Welcome to the @adidas family, @USAvolleyball! #teamadidas pic.twitter.com/P4PkbRbBln— Husker Volleyball (@Huskervball) July 19, 2017
I know we’ve mentioned about how adidas has seemingly saved themselves from oblivion around here. That being said, couple people pointed out to me that the new deal between Nebraska Athletics & adidas was almost ready to go in March. Well, it’s the back half of July now, so there has to be a wondering when the new contract will be announced.
Filed under biggest surprise of media days: Tom Herman offered an impassioned case for Ndamukong Suh as the 2009 Heisman winner.— David Ubben (@davidubben) July 18, 2017
Okay, so I think Herman is a good guy for this. That being said, his obsession with how his players pee is still driving me nuts.
If you’re outside today, be careful. I know DFW has a high listed of 97, but it’s gonna be even warmer in & around Lincoln.
Excessive Heat Warnings will continue through Friday. The Heat Index may reach 110° at times. Hear more details @11 pic.twitter.com/sWlWTcKNKH— Channel 8 KLKN-TV (@Channel8ABC) July 19, 2017
Shade, plenty of water/fluids, and rest when you need to.
PS, if you were planning on getting that deal from Vals today on those extra large pizzas, hope you ordered early.
#LNK is out of oven space for this special, but SOME #OMA and franchise locations still have availability. #Vals60th #ThankYouLincoln pic.twitter.com/Aln2GPp5aw— Valentino's Pizza (@valentinospizza) July 19, 2017
Enjoy some Bruce Hornsby & the Range to finish your Flakes.
