What’d you think of that Husker defense?

I’m impressed. Going into this season I wasn’t really sure what to expect. I figured the secondary would be pretty good, but I wasn’t sure how the line would hold up.

Now, don’t get me wrong. I am aware that they gave up 501 yards of total offense, but they were also out on that field for a looooong time. I look forward to watching what the defense can do through the rest of the year.

On to your flakes.

Harry Potter

Finally I get a little Harry Potter back in this. I didn’t even read these books until I was 31, so I can’t compare my thoughts of these characters as a child to the authors, but I don’t agree with all of the takes as an adult. I especially don’t agree with the Mrs. Norris and Filch take. Yuck. Filch was just a bully as an adult because he was jealous of the children he could never be like. Anyway...
