The Crystallized CFB Memory Discussion Thread

You know the moment of which I speak. Fearless Leader described one of his own in his incredible pre-season piece today. While I'm not interested in trying to jump toward his level of prose...

Nebraska confirmed these alternate uniforms as their kit for the Wisconsin game on 29 September of this season.

Okay, it's not this bad. But we listed our house on Thursday and had an offer in hand by Saturday that gets us out without owing any moneys. WOOOOOO! You may now return to your Sunday morning owl drunj recovery, monsters.

B1G Conference Logo Redesign Contest

As you might have expected, amateurs with too much time on their hands have completely destroyed the folks gleefully spending millions of B1G dollars they received for their "work."

Steve Sipple (LJS) with Bo on Taylor Martinez

+

Kudos to Sip for asking Bo some really tough questions regarding Taylor Martinez. We all know Bo doesn't really care for the media chasing rumors like this, but it has to be done. That having been said, this is what I've thought all along: the rumors are just that - rumors. Bo just doesn't play games with this stuff. Remember Cody Glenn? When he was suspended, he was suspended, pure and simple. Same with Philip Dillard - he didn't play because he wasn't fully on board. Even this season, LaVonte David goes for 19 tackles and Bo says "he made a lot of mistakes." It's not about being a jerk, it's about being 100% truthful with his players - and it's one of the things that kept this season's QB situation from exploding in the team's face (like Arizona State's situation did the year Sam Keller decided to transfer to NU). With Bo in charge, that kind of stuff just isn't going to happen. Players may leave, but it won't be due to Pelini or another coach lying to them or to the media about them - it appears that's just something Nebraska doesn't do, and I'm very happy about it.

Don't Worry - We Lutherans Have The Big Ten Covered

2

Friend of mine pointed this out to me yesterday - my denomination's headquarters are across the street from Big Ten Center. Considering how many more Lutherans there are in Big Ten country as opposed to Big 12, I volunteer myself and all fellow Lutheran Huskers to keep an eye on things.

1987. OSU 5-0, Nebraska 5-0. And what a cast of characters: Keith "End Zone" Jones, Thurman Thomas, Ken Clark, Mike Gundy, Neil Smith, Hart Lee Dykes, Broderick Thomas, Barry Sanders, and Steve Taylor all played in this game, plus a few more I'm likely forgetting who went on to try their luck in the NFL. Huskers went home happy - here's hoping the trip home this Saturday night will be similar.

I've been looking for an online image of this poster for years. It used to be all over downtown Lincoln. Glad somebody finally scanned it or whatever.

Watching one of your kids fight cancer is something no one should have to do. I'm sure the Cosgrove family would appreciate any notes of encouragement, regardless of the fan base from which they come.

NU Athletic Department Explains "RedOut" Intent

Like most of us expected, this wasn't actually supposed to be a callout of Texas, but the annual alumni focus game. Why nobody put two and two together in the Athletic Department is beyond me - you'd expect they'd be on top of this a little better.

Your Cheatin' Heart Will Tell On You

All right, fine, T. Boone. You're right. We've always had a wandering eye. It's not you: it really is us. Thing is, it's been like we're really good roommates these last eighty years or so: we love you, but we're not IN love with you. I know you think the Big Integer will treat us badly. I know you're hurt and upset, and I wish this could be anything other than what it is. But I can't keep stringing you along anymore - eighty five years is too long by half. Take care of yourself, okay?

Apparently someone forgot to send the official Big 12-2 script to Lubbock. Those who've noticed the Longhorn Death Star moving into the Lubbock system need not be alarmed: this is just a training exercise.

I don't understand how my Nebraska, one of the corner stones of the big 8 and big 12 is going to leave and go to big 10 country! Apparently, Nebraska is now caught between a rock and a House of Spears. http://twitter.com/ndamukong_suh

Nebraska Gets On The Board

"At 1:23 a.m., a Lincoln police officer on bike patrol saw a man relieving himself on a fence outside 121 Centennial Mall, just off O Street, said Officer Katie Flood." /deactivating irony enhancer in 3...2...1... Again goes to show that Dr. Tom was always right: "Nothing good happens after midnight."

Ndamukong Suh Walks On Water, Elected Governor Of Nebraska, And Would Like To Date Your Daughter, Sir

+

Okay, not really, but really, Ndamukong Suh is pushing to be the most popular man in Nebraska. The current officeholder, of course, is Tom Osborne, which can mean only one thing: we're about to witness the nicest blood vendetta in history, dadgummit. Mark my words: there will almost be swearing and somewhere, somehow, someone will grimace in chagrin at the lengths to which these two men will go to not offend anyone.

Brad Dickson's "Week in Review"

Coupla decent one-liners here, especially "Saturday, Husker fans got their first look at the "peso" defense. "Peso" comes from Carl Pelini, which probably means the full name is the "@#$% peso."
