Frosted Flakes: Take Things As They Are

New, 21 comments

Getting ourselves worked up isn’t going to get us anywhere

NCAA Football: Minnesota at Nebraska Dylan Widger-USA TODAY Sports

After another disappointing game, I think we need to just take things as they are. I don’t know that questioning each and every move that is made gets us anywhere but frustrated.

Jon has already stated that this season doesn’t mean anything. And we all know if Jon said it, then it’s right. So, let’s just think of this season as some glorified scrimmages (that the Huskers didn’t perform that well in) and enjoy the game on Friday.

Here are your flakes.
