Corn Flakes: CFP is Set and Husker Volleyball Lands Big Transfer

Who will you cheer for on Monday?

University of Minnesota volleyball, August 2022, by Jerry Holt, Star Tribune

Did you watch the semifinal games yesterday?

The Michigan/Alabama game was kind of a cluster at times, but was a good one. Especially if you aren’t rooting for either team and don’t care about the outcome. I liked how Michigan did that thing in overtime where they scored right away and didn’t have to really hope and pray that their defense could hold the other team so they had another chance. That seems like a fun way to do overtime.

I thought Washington/Texas was also a good one. However, I had to root for Washington in that one because...Texas. The end of this game was insane. I got the shakes a little when they put 1 second on the clock for Texas. Thankfully, they didn’t get by on that crap once again.

I think the championship next week will be a good one. Who are you cheering for? Michigan or Washington?
