The bowl selections are out.
There are some very interesting match ups. I’ll do a separate bit on that later as we get closer to the games being played.
For now, though, I want to know -
Will you guys be watching the bowls?
If so, which are you interested in?
I’ll be watching as many as possible. It’s something I do. I love college football. I love the bowls.
Will You Be Watching the Bowl Games
This poll is closed
There are too many and the bowls are meaningless.
During an interview with ESPN’s Tom Rinaldi in Saturday’s edition of College GameDay, Burrow shared that he really wanted to be a Cornhusker all along.
“I had one offer after my junior year of high school, and it was my dad’s team. I wanted to go to Nebraska,” he said, via 247Sports. “They told me I wasn’t good enough.”
Well, good for Joe. He ended up in a place where he’ll probably win the Heisman Trophy.
We can re-hash this all we want. We all know that hindsight is 20/20. We all know that this kind of stuff is just noise, that it gives that one shitass at the coffee shop just another bit of dried dung to beat you over the head with.
Ignore him. Then leave early and stick a potato in his tail pipe. You carry potatoes with this, don’t you? For this purpose?
Nebraska redshirt freshman walk-on DB Isaiah Stalbird has entered his name in the NCAA transfer portal.
QB Andrew Bunch is out there too. Not a surprise. He’s behind two five-star recruits at quarterback. He was in the portal last year as well. I hope he finds what he’s looking for.

Then There’s This
Play sports for a healthier brain: Even football, soccer, hockey athletes have healthier brains -- ScienceDaily
There have been many headlines in recent years about the potentially negative impacts contact sports can have on athletes’ brains. But a new Northwestern University study shows that, in the absence of injury, athletes across a variety of sports -- including football, soccer and hockey -- have healthier brains than non-athletes.
In the crush of the amphitheater, my friends and I found a place to sit perhaps a quarter of a mile away from the bandstand. I scanned the crowd with zoom-lens binoculars. The sheer magnitude of the gathering was awesome and, as the day progressed, not a little disquieting. In the main, the audience struck me as benign, passive, and unutterably stoned.
This is from 1969. Oh, those boomers. The “flower child” generation. So stoned. So fucked up on LSD. Somehow they all got old - the ones that didn’t OD anyway - and became their parents. Angry, self-righteous, sure the country is going to hell. You need to read this story.
