Frosted Flakes: The Kool-Aid Is Getting Deep Around Here

New, 39 comments

We’ve reached the optimistic stage of the offseason. Isn’t it great to be a Husker fan right now?

We are entering county fair season. Ranchdude has to ask if he can eat something or “is this for the fair?” Stubborn calves are being coaxed to follow their handlers in return for...well nothing really. That explains why they think it’s not worth their time.

It also means we are getting closer to Husker football.

The other way I can tell we are closer to football...we have actual articles to read and clip for Flakes. There are no “top 5” or “top 10” lists. These are genuine Kool-Aid offerings. Everyone is bought-in, stronger, and ready to compete for their spot. In Nebraska, I’m pretty sure Kool-Aid counts as an appetizer, so enjoy Husker fans. We are getting closer to the dawning of the age of Frost.
