It seems like an eternity, but here we go. Finally, the 2015 season is about to start. I, for one, could not be more excited. New coach, new staff, bunch of new players, all prepared to take the field and show what they have learned. If you went to Spring Game, you really saw nothing, and during fall camp not much has been revealed. Oh, yeah, some hints here and there, but we won't see until Saturday, what they've got. The experts have not been kind in their assessments, and probably shouldn't be, but we'll find out when they play.
They are not starting out with any push-over either. BYU is a tremedous adversary with witch to begin the season. These two teams have never met before on the field of play, so it's anyone's guess what will happen. One thing that will happen is a hard hitting football game between two storied teams. I believe it will be a really good contest. Although Bronco Mendenhal lost his first 4 openers, he has gone 7-1 over the past eight years. Don't you just love that name for a football coach? Nebraska has not lost a home opener in "like forever". We'll see if Mike Riley can keep it alive.
Georgians For Nebraska is once again hosting the Watch Party at Coldbrew's in Roswell, 880 Holcomb Bridge Road. If you need directions, you can find them at ga4ne. Game time is 3:30this Saturday, September 5. There will be games on earlier in the day so there will be people already there watching them, most likely. The suggestion is to arrive early to grab any empty seats, and/or be at the ready to be seated when earlier patrons leave. Ya'll know how it works by now. First come first served.
We'll have a raffle, the Big Board, and you'll get to see folks that you haven't probably seen in a while. Give you a chance to catch up on old home news and gossip. Good time to renew your membership to GFN, also.
Can't wait to see each and every one.
GO BIG RED!!!
