Check here if you want to check out the rosters.

I was not particularly excited for the announcement. It changed though when a couple former Nebraska football greats started talking some trash. It brightened my day. I would love to hear more from the former players.

How to Get the Unquantifiable Benefits of Cold Showers
Cold showers are not a new concept and have, in fact, been declining in popularity following a lot of hype in the last few years. Frankly, that’s probably because that hype made some pretty big claims that are hard to substantiate.

As a former scientist and medical researcher, I concluded pretty early on that the science on cold showers was rather unconvincing. Yet, as an avid self-experimenter, it is one of the few habits — after dozens of experiments with supplements, gadgets, exercises, and habits — that have stuck with me after all this time.

So, why do it if I don’t believe the science?

Because it gives me results.

(Nate M: I’ve actually started taking cold showers, though not for 10 minutes, but it is a process)
