Wednesday Frosted Flakes: Support A Fellow Husker - Never Watch A Game Alone

New, 51 comments

In these dire times, we should seek out others and take away their T.V. remotes just to be safe.

NCAA Football: Minnesota at Nebraska Bruce Thorson-USA TODAY Sports

As we are trying to navigate these virgin waters of three losing seasons in a row, we must remember to not let our fellow Husker comrades swim alone. This can be done in a number of ways: politely remind our fans to not tweet players anything other then positive affirmations, talk about how Nebraska is better than Iowa, and invite each other to complain about the changing weather. Personally, I have started to tell my Dad the wrong start times of each game for which he texts me every Saturday morning. I am also considering canceling my YouTube.TV subscription, so I am forced only to listen to the game on the radio, much more productive that way.

At the end of the day, we have discovered what we all knew to be true anyways. John Cook has ruined Husker Football. We were doing just fine until he had to come in 2000 and instantly our program began to tank. People do not talk about this but if you start connecting the dots...well you have a lot of dots and lines. But at the center of those dots and lines is John Cook continually beating expectations and performing at the highest level in the country. He is the culprit.

Not really. He’s great. On to Flakes.
