Frosted Flakes: Post Storm Edition

Well, it wasn’t what we wanted but we must move forward to Colorado

Nope, it wasn’t optimal. So much that the game was cancelled.

We all know it was now and have probably read every article discussing it and analyzing the administrative steps that went along with the decision to not play the game. Any one of us can easily sit back and say what we would have done differently but I believe that we only know a fraction of what when on behind the scenes.

Being an athletic administrator cannot be easy and I do not envy them. Whatever they were dealing with I am sure they were keeping the safety of the teams and staff in mind when they came to the final decision.

Whatever you think, it’s over for now. Will the game be made up or another one scheduled? Maybe, but that’s down the road and we have a game against former Big 8/12 conference mate Colorado this Saturday. The team will have to focus on the new task at hand and so should we.

Anyway, on to flakes...
