Thursday Flakes: Season Reset During Bye Week

Let’s go back to a 0-0 record

NCAA Football: Nebraska at Minnesota Jesse Johnson-USA TODAY Sports

We still have a lot of season left to go for the Huskers, and this bye week might be just what the doctor ordered. Although bye weeks and Scott Frost are not too familiar, he has not had one since year one at UCF. It seems like Minnesota was our third mulligan of the season so really we’re doing great!

Anyway, I recently bloodied up my face and love how I get to make up a new story every time someone asks me what happened. The real story is quite boring; I was wrestling with my sister’s dog, and Jax decided to bite my face off. I think I’ve told the real story once so far the last three days. Fake stories are much more fun for both the listener and story teller.

I have settled on getting into a bar fight, which everyone seems to believe instantly; not sure what that says about me, and fighting off a raccoon that made it into my house. Any more story suggestions before my face heals? I am not the most creative person around.

When will people learn that creating a new football league is bad idea if you want to make money. The NFL is dominant that you have to almost be a completely different sport to differentiate. If the XFL is hoping to just be a feeder league than they are doomed. The rules need to be something like Australian rules football. Something people will flock to regardless of their relation to traditional football.
