Holy cow, here we are. Right at the beginning of the offseason. Not a single Husker sporting event until August.

It is time to sit back and enjoy the upcoming summer.

Yes, enjoy it. You do not need to sit and worry about the football or volleyball teams until at least late July or early August.

Need something to do? Go for a walk, run, bike ride, boat ride, camp, swim, or whatever else you folks do during the summer.

But whatever it is, enjoy it.
