Big Red Cobcast: Is it Time to Cheat?

It’s been a while since the Huskers have won big. Is it time to fix that by bending the rules?

It’s only been two days, and it’s already been the week from hell. I’ve been swamped in work stuff, and it’s just not slowing down. I wish there were something to make my job easier.

Fortunately, for Mike Riley, such a cure exists. It’s called cheating. I’m not sure if he’s ever used this cure. I’m not sure if he’ll ever use it. But we’re starting to wonder: is it time?

It’s clear that every team south of the Huskers is already embracing the art of cheating. I’m pretty sure there are a few teams north of us, as well. There are tons of big-money businesses and nice people who want winning football. Maybe it’s time for them to come out of the woodwork.

Don’t get all high and mighty on me with this, either. I get that we’d all like to believe our favorite teams win fair and square. It’s a marvelous feeling knowing that the Huskers can paste Florida with good, clean-cut young men with 4.0 GPAs, no criminal records and checking accounts free of all booster money.

But can we be certain that shady shit has never happened in Lincoln? No. No, we can’t. That used to bum me out. Now, I’m an adult with a burdensome job and I’m realistic about things.

So let’s call a spade a spade. We need a champion, and we don’t care how we get it. What do you say, Warren Buffett?

Listen to us debate that and more on this week’s Cobcast!
