Week 2 Cobs: Rutgers, Notre Dame Ticket Holders, 3rd Down & A Literal Country Mile

Yes, the Nebraska D was rough for the first 30 minutes vs. Oregon. But other things sucked too you know!

The Sea of Red was back in Notre Dame Stadium

Well, well, we go.

Nominee Numero Uno: Rutgers. Prior to this season, the Eastern Michigan Apaches were 0-38 versus the Big Ten. In fact, you probably thought so little about Eastern Michigan that you didn’t know they aren’t the Apaches, they are the the Bears.

Enter Rutgers.

You know the story. Rutgers, which is apparently in a state that keeps electing Chris Christie, got beat 13-16.

Nominee Numero Dos: Notre Dame. The Domers are a staple here, but this one will look really familiar to Husker fans. In September, 2001 Nebraska traveled to South Bend en masse and turned the Notre Dame Stadium into the Sea of Red East.

Georgia did it again on Saturday.

Nominee Numero Tres: the Blackshirts. They didn’t get any help in the first half, but still...42 points is embarassing. I checked at half-time to see if Scott Frost was trending. He wasn’t but if the Blackshirts hadn’t had some kind of identity transplant at half-time it might have been by the end of the game. I don’t want to trigger anyone, so no media is available.

Nominee Numero Cuatro: Whatever this is.

With Yakety Sax

I can’t even.


So, who gets the cob?

BTW, you really need to think about Eastern Michigan more. You didn’t even notice that they aren’t the Bears either, did you? GBR.
