Friday Flakes: If No Vote Today Then At Least We May Have A “Rose Bowl” Right?

It all makes sense now!

NCAA Football: Rose Bowl-Oregon vs Wisconsin Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Is there going to be a vote today? I am not holding my breath.

If they do not start on October 10th, then it appears to be quite unlikely that any Big Ten team could be considered for the College Football Playoff.

However, I hope to provide some consolation for those who may be distressed!

That’s right folks, maybe the Big Ten and the Pac-12 could start after Thanksgiving and each conference championship can play in a modified version of the “Rose Bowl.” It won’t be the actual Rose Bowl because it is one of the semi-final games for the college football playoff.

I think everything makes sense now. The Big Ten and the Pac-12 didn’t want to compete for the College Football Playoff. They were worried that Nebraska and others outside of the conference are not properly appreciating what actually matters most to the Big Ten.

Da Rose Bowl.


Accountability? Or Something Like That

Earlier this week I did the ten minute burpee challenge. There are various types of burpees but the ones I did require my chest to hit the ground, push up, get on my feet, then jump.

Rinse and repeat.

I’ve never done it before so I didn’t know how I would do.

I ended up doing 50 in ten minutes. I plan on doing it again in two weeks and I will report back.

Maybe this could be a form of accountability or something...right?
