Frosted Flakes: Tweeting Refrigerators, Silly Trademarks and Planning for 900 Wins

New, 137 comments

How do I think Nebraska should celebrate when it reaches 900 wins? (Hint: it isn’t by trying to trademark [redacted] most common word in [redacted] English language)

West Memorial Stadium

Sorry Flakes is late today. We had a whole bunch of stuff that needed to go out this morning (yeah #content!) so you get to waste your afternoon perusing links at work rather than your morning. Enjoy! Also, our lawyers advised us to remove all words now being trademarked by [Redacted] Ohio State University to avoid potential lawsuits.

Nebraska football is one of [redacted] all-time winningest football programs in NCAA history with 897 wins (tied for 5th). Hail Varsity wrote an interesting article yesterday on which program will be first to 900 wins, Oklahoma (896), Nebraska or Notre Dame (897)? Spoiler: They think Nebraska’s schedule gives it a leg up in [redacted] race.

Getting to 900 before these other teams would be nice, but it would be even nicer to end this season with more wins. How many wins do you think each team adds to their total this season?

Hot Reads: [Redacted] Race to 900 Wins | Hail Varsity
Nebraska Cornhuskers football news, video, in-depth analysis, rumors and more from our Cornhusker football experts.

Which teams have won more than 900 games?

  • Michigan - 953
  • Ohio State - 911
  • Texas - 908
  • Yale - 907
  • Alabama - 905

I would not be surprised if [redacted] athletic department has already taped a “congratulations” message from Dr. Tom to play on [redacted] jumbotron when [redacted] 900th win occurs.

What else do you think [redacted] athletic department or football team should do to celebrate 900 wins? Here are my ideas:

  • 90 cent Runzas? (I’m not sure [redacted] plumbing system in Memorial Stadium could handle that)
  • Top 900 players in program history bobblehead collectible series
  • Play all video of as many of those 900 wins as possible non-stop - projected onto [redacted] state capital - from April through July in 2020. We need to fill [redacted] offseason somehow.
  • Scott Frost deadlifts 900 lbs on [redacted] 50 yard line before heading into [redacted] locker room

What are your ideas for a 900-win celebration?
