Scott Frost Day News Flakes Heads To Raleigh

NCAA Basketball: South Dakota at Nebraska Steven Branscombe-USA TODAY Sports

The Big Ten/ACC challenge is underway and the boys from up north are doing quite well so far. As of this publish the Big Ten leads 6-2 over the ACC. The two losses were Syracuse over Indiana in two overtimes and Wake Forest over Northwestern in one overtime. So, the Big Ten has been close to being 8-0 this series.

The Huskers play North Carolina State tonight in Raleigh at 6:15pm. Hopefully Nebraska can keep their winning streak in tact and help the Big Ten take home the title.

Enjoy flakes!

Hey Rube....

I have seen the Brown Recluse Spider
run with a net in her hand, or rather,
what resembled a net, what resembled
a hand. She ran down the gleaming white floor
of the bathtub, trailing a frail swirl
of hair, and in it the hull of a beetle
lay woven. The hair was my wife’s,
long and dark, a few loose strands, a curl
she might idly have turned on a finger,
she might idly have twisted, speaking to me,
and the legs of the beetle were broken.
