Friday Flakes: Which Nebraska football losses are you most confident in for the upcoming season? The news of decorticators

You read correctly. In which defeats are you most confident for this coming season?

Sometimes we’re usually guessing what games we’re comfortable with Nebraska winning. Which, if we’re being honest, changes as we get closer to the start of the season.

Below is the program for 2023.

  1. @Minnesota
  2. @Colorado
  3. Northern Illinois
  4. Louisiana Technology
  5. Michigan
  6. @Illinois
  7. North West
  8. Purdue
  9. @ State of Michigan
  10. Maryland
  11. Wisconsin
  12. Iowa

If I were to put money on games, I’m pretty sure Nebraska would lose, so it’s pretty easy. In Minnesota, Illinois and Michigan.

I’m not saying I expect Nebraska to beat Colorado, Northwest, Purdue, MSU, Maryland, Wisconsin and Iowa. I’m just saying that I really expect Minnesota, Illinois and Michigan to beat us pretty easily.

I know Minnesota and Illinois lost some really good players from last year’s team, but they have a culture and a program built on physicality on the offensive and defensive lines. This is especially true for any team coached by Bret Bielema.

With Minnesota, I think it could be a miracle if Matt Rhule can find a way to beat Minnesota in the opener.

As for Michigan, I just think they’re going to have too much talent on this roster for Nebraska to compete.

So these are the three losses in which I am most confident. What do you think ?

In ‘toxic atmosphere’ in Cincinnati: What USC didn’t know before hiring AD Mike Bohn – The Athletic
On Nov. 7, 2019, USC President Carol Folt stood behind a lectern and introduced Mike Bohn as the school’s new athletic director. Bohn, hired away from Cincinnati, was thrown into the glitzy but unenviable task of leading the ghost ship that was USC’s athletic department, brought in to course-correct a string of uninspired, island-based Trojan athletic directors, to revive a once proud but rudderless football program and clean up a series of embarrassing scandals and breaches.

Andy Reid dislikes new kick-off rule, wonders ‘where does it stop?’
When the NFL was criticized for years for its stance on player safety, concessions were coming. Anyone who has complained loudly about the league’s handling of concussions can’t logically also complain when rules were put in place to make the game safer.

Part of making the game safer was removing kickoffs.

MLB All-30: Prop-based home run celebrations are spreading. Who make the note? – Athleticism
Like everything in baseball, home run celebrations can inspire big feelings.

On one side of the debate are traditionalists, who find the inclusion of arts and crafts in today’s celebrations a bit over the top. This is especially true when done by teams languishing at or near the bottom of the standings. On the other side are those who see the celebrations as part of the evolution of the game, a positive development for a sport that for so long has been obsessed with crushing anything that might – heaven forbid! — show an opponent.

Even kindergartners should be allowed to walk to school: study
