Does anybody have the answer to the tunnel walk conundrum?

Is the tunnel walk a goner? It may appear to be so.

I’ll probably have a say in that. I don’t think we’ve decided yet what’s going to happen. I think the Tunnel Walk is a great tradition. It’s been around since I was in school, so it’s pretty special when the team comes out of the tunnel,” Frost said. “There’s talk about changing it occasionally and seeing if there’s a special theme for the game, if we can match it to that. There’s talk of keeping it the same, and there’s talk of having a fresh new one every time we come out for a game. So I don’t know if a decision has been made on that.”

Brian Christopherson’s article on Scott Frost’s comments regarding the Tunnel Walk during his hour on “Sports Nightly” pointed to possible changes to the Tunnel Walk.

I feel like I would be upset and happy at the same time if they changed the Tunnel Walk song. Yes, I know that doesn’t make sense but I bet there are a lot of you who totally get what I mean.

Derek Peterson of Hail Varsity makes an argument for changing the Tunnel Walk. Then he makes an argument for keeping ‘Sirius’ as the song for the Tunnel Walk.

But it comes down to it, we need to ask ourselves if the main reason we don’t want to change it is for nostalgia reasons, then that would probably mean it is a good time for it go.

But if they decide not to change it, then I would be perfectly fine with it.

But if they do change it, it better be good. How they did “Come together” for the Spring Game was, in my opinion, a tragic attempt. They should just use the first 1:30 of “Come Together” by Gary Clark Jr. It kind of builds up to a point, and it is easy to clap along with the song.

But unfortunately I think they missed a great opportunity.

That’s a lot of buts.

What say you?


CHILI RECIPE NOBODY ASKED FOR

Here at Corn Nation we believe in giving. And in the spirit of giving, I will provide my ‘world famous’ slow cooker chili recipe. And by world famous, I mean a chili recipe that most people seem to really enjoy. I’ve been asked to make this recipe several times since I came up with it a year ago.

How did I come up with this recipe? Well this is my secret to cooking. Go find recipes that are made of ingredients that you like. Mind blowing I know. But in all seriousness I wanted my own recipe that I can say I made myself, so that’s what I did.

I scanned the internet for all different types of chili recipes. Probably picked out about 10 recipes and started scanning the the ingredients. Do I like hamburger? Yes, throw it on the list. Do I like green and red bell peppers? Yes, throw it on the list. And so on.

So below is my famous chili recipe:

In a large skillet, cook beef of medium heat until no longer pink; drain. Transfer to a 5-qt slow cooker. Add the remaining ingredients. Stir, then cover and cook on low for 8-10 hours. If desired, top servings with chopped red onion, cheese, sour cream and/or green onions.

  1. 2 lbs of ground beef
  2. One 28-ounce can of crushed tomoatoes
  3. 2 cans of rotel (if you want the chili to be spicer then get the hot)
  4. 1 tablespoon of onion powder
  5. 2 green bell peppers (diced)
  6. 2 red bell peppers (diced)
  7. 3 chipotles in adobo (chopped) - this is probably the game changer
  8. 2 cans of black beans
  9. 2 cans of tomato sauce (8 ounces each)
  10. 1.5 tablespoons of cumin
  11. 3 tablespoons of chili powder
  12. 1 teaspoons of paprike (smoked if you have it)
  13. 2 cups of broth or water
  14. 4-6 cloves of minced garlic
  15. salt
  16. pepper.

If anybody makes it, please let me know what you think. @nmchugh85 on twitter.

Quick Book Review: Catfish & Mandala: A Two-Wheeled Voyage Through the Landscape and Memory of Vietnam by Andrew Pham

4/5 Stars

Andrew Pham spent the first 10 years of his life as a young boy growing up in Vietnam. Following the end of the Vietnam war his family escaped and made their new life in California. This book gives his account of his life in Vietnam as well as life in the U.S. as Vietnamese Americans. But the main trope of the book includes Pham riding his bike through Vietnam and all of his experiences.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book, but just felt it might have dragged on a little too much. It was eye opening to see the viewpoint of a man who left his home and never found a new home even after returning a couple decades later as an adult. I was surprised by his account of Vietnam. This would not exactly be endorsed by the Vietnamese Government’s Tourist Attraction Bureau.
