We find ourselves here again Corn Nation.

Another Monday Flakes after a Husker loss.

You may have noticed (or not) that I did not title this article “Frosted Flakes”. I have accepted that we will soon be back to normal corn flakes and that frost will not be part of the program.

I wanted it to be different. You wanted it to be different.

But here we are again. On our own. Going down the road we’ve recently known.

Happy? Monday.
