Red Out Around the World

Apparently Nebraska doesn’t like to let things go. Some fans (I assume) are starting a campaign called “Red Out Around the World,” showing the “world” (does anyone really care) how mad they are about the Big 12 Championship. I guess it was all just to much to handle and they had to up and leave the conference.

Nebraska. A place of integrity, family, commitment. Where traditions are forged in the furnace of July. But hardened on Saturday nights in November. A place where the best thing about summer, is when it turns into fall. These last few months, thunderstorms weren’t the only power building over the Great Plains….

Wait? What?!? Forged in the furnace of July? An 85 degree furnace? Since apparently the summers are pretty boring there, it looks like they had nothing better to do than make this video.

And you know what else is sad? I could have made a better video with my iPhone 4.

Updated the video below. The first one was taken down.

A little late, but some interesting conversation from the worldwide leader about Texas football possibly flipping conferences from the Big 12 to the Big Ten…

Longhorn fans, particularly season ticket holders, got some exciting news this week when The University of Texas announced Friday that two big opponents had been added to the future schedule. Texas will take on a pair of BCS non-conference opponents in 2015 and 2016.

From the official UT press release:

A home and home football series with Pac-10 foe [tag]California[/tag] and Big Ten opponent [tag]Minnesota[/tag] has been scheduled for the 2015 and 2016 seasons, The University of Texas announced Friday. The Longhorns will travel to Minneapolis on Sept. 19, 2015 and to Berkley on Sept. 10, 2016. The Bears will visit Austin on Sept. 12, 2015 and the Gophers will return to Austin on Sept. 17, 2016.

Great job by the Texas athletic department to schedule top quality BCS opponents. Add those games to [tag]UCLA[/tag] in 2010 and 2011 and [tag]Ole Miss[/tag] in 2012 and 2013 and you’ve got some winnable, marquee games against big name programs. Should be fun to watch.
