Friday Flakes: If/When Should We Give A Standing Ovation on Saturday? and a Mini-Book Review

Sooner than you think

NCAA Football: Bethune Cookman at Nebraska Bruce Thorson-USA TODAY Sports

If/When should we give a standing ovation on Saturday?

When Ohio State Punts the ball.

As many of you know Nebraska has not forced a punt against Ohio State in two seasons. And that wouldn’t be so bad if Nebraska didn’t play them twice.

So I ask Nebraska football fans, if/when Nebraska forces Ohio State to punt the ball on Saturday please encourage everybody around you to join you in a standing ovation with me.

Because that is what I’ll be doing. And I’m looking forward to it.

...on to flakes.

Mini-Book Review: Life Is So Good by George Dawson

There are so many memoirs written about powerful men and women. How about a memoir about man who was the grandson of a slave and lived to be 102 years old but learned to read at age 98. He has quite the perspective that any person could benefit from.

He lived through the entire 20th century. So I would say he has seen quite a large amount of change happen in and around the United States.
