Of Bangarangs & Daggers Episode 37: The Hopelessness of Defeat

Losing to Michigan is probably worse than a Brad Davison punch to the groin.

Kevin and Nate are back with another episode talking about our Nebraska Cornhuskers. However, it’s a somber start this week as they remember Kobe Bryant, and their favorite on-court memory of Kobe happens to coincide in that it’s the 2004 Detroit Pistons narrowly missing making it a sweep over the LA Lakers for the NBA title in a 4-1 series.

But alas, tragic loss of life too early is always sad to witness, and we hope you all can use this opportunity to enjoy extra special moments with your loved ones as we are reminded how precious and short our time together can be.

And with that, it was onto the most recent games since our last episode. Nate and Kevin remark on how the Rutgers Scarlet Knights are actually a pretty great team this season and how the Huskers gave it a fight. Kevin goes on a diatribe at Nate’s encouragement explaining in some (but no, not actually all detail) why he loathes the Michigan Wolverines with every fiber of his being (but not 1980’s X-Men Wolverine). Some venting about how those arrogant jerks just don’t let reality sink into that smug superiority they surround themselves with ensues.

A brief glance at the upcoming schedule of games and the lack of predictability both this team and the conference slate offers wraps this episode up. Oh, and one team in particular took a real punch to the groin in their depth chart. Tune in to find out who, and why!
