Friday Flakes: The Historic Husker Thursday That Never Was

COLLEGE FOOTBALL: OCT 15 Nebraska at Purdue Photo by Zach Bolinger/Icon Sportswire via Getty Images

Yesterday morning I deleted my social media apps as I had a day to myself because of an IT conversion at work.

A couple hours into my morning I check in to the Corn Nation slack chat room and boom. Rumors swirling all over the place. There was a pending announcement at some point.

A lot of rumors were pointing to either Mickey Joseph dropping his “interim” title or Nebraska was going to name Matt Rhule as the next head coach.

I redownloaded Twitter in case I needed to get an article ready for publication.




The nothing happened.

What felt like a potential historic day for Nebraska football ended up just being a normal day for Nebraska football.

I again deleted my twitter app this morning so lets hope that a slew of rumors don’t start flying around today.
