Today’s flakes is a hodge podge of goo. This is what happens when your team doesn’t make a bowl game.

Top Minnesota Gophers GIFS of the 2010s - The Daily Gopher

Because we need to brighten up the mood around here

I saw this and thought it would be fun to put something similar together for Nebraska. Note that Goldy Gopher is a madman. If Herbie Husker did ANY of the stunts Goldy pulls off, Husker fans would lose their shit, kind of like if you stand up for too long in front of them... or play too much Hip Hop Hogwash.

I am terrible with GIFs. If there’s one thing we’re missing here at CN, it’s someone who could do some quality “stupid”, either with GIFs or with Photoshop.

Let’s come up with some Nebraska GIFs for fun, “because we need to brighten up the mood around here”. And maybe if you’re skilled, and you’d like to join us, send me an email at

Isaac Gifford Comes to Nebraska As A Blueshirt

Younger brother of Luke Gifford, who plays linebacker for the Dallas Cowboys, or at least he did until yesterday, when he broke his arm and is out for the season.

Isaac will join the team this spring, and either try to earn a scholarship or get one next fall, meaning he will not count towards this class. This should tell you they’re planning on filling this class.

This is NEWS, not a reason for you guys to go off on some damned unfounded rumor. KEEP THAT IN MIND.

Then There’s This

A note about Youtuber PewDiePie. I understand who he is because I have adult children of whom I ask questions, such as “Who’s that guy?” and “Why do you listen to him so much?”. So I am familiar with Logan Paul, PewDiePie, and a few others.

I find it interesting. They can’t afford cable or don’t want to pay for it, and Youtubers provide them with a form of entertainment. You can poo-poo the concept, or you can just look at it as different than what you grew up doing, which is watching the Brady Bunch and Gilligan’s Island on TV.

PewDiePie deletes Twitter account a day after announcing YouTube break | Metro News

PewDiePie has deleted his Twitter account after declaring the site has become a ‘cesspool of opinions’ which rewards virtue-signalling and ‘constant posturing’.

Twitter really is a shit hole. It’s good for nothing but a time sink. I can understand why he would delete his account, and I can’t imagine how many followers he has, but it’s still a pretty bold move.
