Friday Frosted Flakes: Scott Frost vs. Twitter and a Cryptid Update

What should the rules be for twitter

As most of you probably have already known, Scott Frost made some comments about what he tells potential recruits about their use of social media, and particularly twitter.

I actually think this is the beginning of Scott Frost’s war on twitter. Doesn’t he realize that if it weren’t for sexism, racism, political blindness (on both sides), overt sexuality and guns that it wouldn’t exist? I am willing to join Frost’s war on twitter.

So from what I can tell from Christopher Heady’s article is that Nebraska has proclaimed the following:

THOU SHALL NOT BE RECRUITED IF YOU TWEET OR POST ABOUT THE FOLLOWING:

  1. Negativity about women
  2. Promoting racism
  3. Surrounding sexuality or sensuality, and
  4. Firearms

I would like to propose the following additions to this proclamation:

  1. Pictures of your dog more than once a day
  2. Any argument about LeBron vs. Jordan that is based on Finals Record or Rings
  3. Pictures of your cat more than once a month
  4. Recipes of Vegetarian Burgers
  5. Corny motivational quotes
  6. Anything about the St. Louis Cardinals
  7. Pictures of food
  8. Criticisms of the Ewoks
  9. Pro-Iowa Football
  10. Complimenting Duke Basketball or Coach K in general

The Night Joe Louis Saved the World

“If you want an idea of what a really political sporting event looked like, one that really did seem to carry the weight of the world, then consider a contest marking its 80th anniversary today: the heavyweight title fight between champion Joe Louis, 24, and challenger Max Schmeling of Germany, 32, in Yankee Stadium, on June 22, 1938. No sporting event has ever had more riding on the outcome, and no two athletes have ever been so freighted with symbolism.”

While I was hoping Cleveland was going to pull off a couple of trades and bring Kawhi Leonard and Kemba Walker to Cleveland, I was very happy with their pick of Collin Sexton. I watched him play for Alabama this past season and he was a winner. A baller. Sometimes all the analytics and measurements in the world can’t substitute for what you see right in front of you.

From the Unknown: An Cryptid Update Everybody Was Waiting For

I posted a story about a “bizarre wolf-like” animal a month or so ago in one of the Friday Flakes (can’t seem to find it now), and how it was puzzling wild life experts. Could it be the legendary chupacabra? It did not fit the profile of a wolf or a domestic dog. Could it be a wolf-like hybrid?

Well the DNA reports came back and the results are out of this world. It is a wolf.
