How is everyone doing with their BTN 10k this week?
Mrs. CN and I are hoping to do ours Saturday morning. It’d been nice to get it in earlier, but damn, has it been hot.
I’ll be honest. This has been a very frustrating week. Our beloved horse-dog Esther had ACL surgery on one knee (both were torn) and it’s been miserable trying to care for her. She has a cone of shame that’s about eight feet wide, so she’s constantly running into everything, including us. She insists on laying at my feet under my desk, making it hard to get work done.
Despite sedatives, she whimpers all night on the floor next to me, depriving me of sleep. She is very needy.
Having written this, boy am I rather whiny.
Hey, I’m old. I need my sleep.
Nebraska fall camp starts this Friday. I managed to throw something together just ahead of camp. I should probably start putting decent thumbnails on these damned things.
I keep wanting to do more, just like the SEC, but I am being stymied.

Do you think that’s happening this year? Do you think Big 12 Commissioner Bob Bowlsby is handing out a Big 12 Championship trophy to Oklahoma this season?
I don’t blame people for betting on Illinois. So far, Scott Frost has shown us not jack shit. Do you remember the Wisconsin - Illinois game last season? Graham Mertz looked like a God of quarterbacks against the Illini when their defense wasn’t even bothering to cover receivers? Do you remember that game?
That Illinois team beat Nebraska. If I were not a Nebraska guy, I wouldn’t bet on us either.

The slick-speaking veteran is aware of the Huskers’ post-season misfortunes. However, he believes Nebraska has pieces in place to make history during the upcoming season.

Simone Biles shares message on Larry Nassar abuse after opting out of Olympics
In 2018, Biles revealed she was one of the more than 100 female gymnasts who credibly accused Nassar of molestation. She said the trauma brought about suicidal thoughts and made it difficult to return to the famed USA Gymnastics training facility formerly run by Bela Karolyi where much of the abuse occurred.
