Oklahoma v Nebraska X

It’s the Jon and Todd show this week as Greg is out. We cover the gamut of Husker sports going on right now! We’re a current events podcast now! Egad!

Have you filled out your NCAA basketball bracket? You joined the CN Bracket Challenge, right?

The NCAA Wrestling tournament was going on as we were recording. Somewhat of a disappointing showing for our beloved Huskers (I am really fucking tired of typing those words together.) With Todd around, we go through wrestling.

Todd and I were both present at US Bank Stadium last weekend for Nebraska baseball. We give you a run down of what we saw.

Volleyball update.

Nebraska Football - we have to talk about football.

We have a discussion about our beloved Huskers’ schedule, noting that Nebraska’s athletic department might be trying to move or add a game on September 4th. A home game.


I point out what happens at contingency planning meetings and how that could have lead to the debacle that was the consideration of re-scheduling the Oklahoma game.

Alien invasion? I have brought that up in a meeting.

Trained Communist Rats in the ceiling chewing on network cables? YES I HAVE BROUGHT THAT UP TOO.

You gotta listen to find out what’s going on!

Jon has book out!

On August 21st, 2015, I unexpectedly dropped dead of a widowmaker heart attack. I was shocked five times on the way to the hospital with no response. I was shocked two more times in the ER. I was dead for over 20 minutes. A stent was placed, and I was induced into a coma. In January 2016 I received a second stent and in June I was diagnosed with an anoxic brain injury.

I wrote a book about my death and recovery. The title, “Been Dead, Never Been To Europe” reflects the ironic nature of life, what happens versus what we want to happen. It’s available at Amazon.

Consider signing up for my newsletter, which is about me and my interests beyond Cornhuskers sports. (I know, right?)
