Did you watch much of the USFL?

I did not. It’s probably more because I’m just not accustomed to watching football this time of year, so I never thought about it much.

Our former head coach Mike Riley was chosen as the USFL Coach of the Year!

Riley led the New Jersey Generals to a 9-1 regular-season record. The Generals clinched the top seed in the North Division and have a 9-game winning streak after losing their week one game against the Birmingham Stallions.


My book, “Been Dead, Never Been To Europe” is free on Amazon until the 25th. So go get it.

It’s Getting Closer - Do You Care?

We are a little over a month away from Big Ten Media days!

I have not yet start drinking Kool-Aid and won’t until at least another month. I thought last year was tough as an off-season, then we stammered into this year. I have talked to only a few people who are excited right now about Husker football.

That’s somewhat normal this time of year. What’s not normal is the nearly angry reaction I get when I ask someone about it. Last year was, “Show Me” year.

This year is, “Impress Me”, and it doesn’t even apply to the year. It applies to Northwestern. As in, we’d damn well better come into that game and destroy the Wildcats. DESTROY. Like we did last season. Otherwise, it’s my belief people will mostly tune out Husker football and find other things to do.

Am I wrong?

Here’s the Big Ten Media Days Schedule:

School Media Sessions on Tuesday, July 26:

Indiana, Iowa, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Nebraska, Northwestern

School Media Sessions on Wednesday, July 27:

Illinois, Michigan State, Ohio State, Penn State, Purdue, Rutgers, Wisconsin

Did You See This?

I have no idea what it means, but it sounds really stupid. What can they do with this?
