Last Saturday's Watch Party was a lot of fun. Everyone enjoyed the game. Nice to see some great offensive production. The fight dealio got a little confusing, but the under-card battles were interesting. The main event didn't really start until after the game. It really looked like two guys waving boxing gloves in each others face and dancing around the ring. Sort of like Dancing With The Stars in shorts. Not a very good fight. Glad we didn't have to pay cover. Late night, though, with that 8 o'clock kick-off. But enough of that.
On To Miami!!! This game should be a good one. Two teams who have really only played 13 times, total, but what games they have all been. I personally can't speak to the 1951 game, but all the rest have been battles. With the exception of one, the Rose Bowl. Easy to forget that one. A few even decided who would be National Champion.
That won't be this game, but it should be the typical grudge match. With both teams fighting to get back into the conversation, a lot of bragging rights will be earned with a win. They have a lot of really great athletes who just seem to have not been able to quite put it together. Lots of speed and talent. Nebraska should match up with them pretty well with a couple of questions. Mostly in the defensive secondary. Look for a lot of substitutions if things start to go awry there. The defensive line of Nebraska will have to make the Miami QB nervous early, so that his timing goes bye, bye. This will be the best team Miami has faced so far this season. The Huskers need to play hard, and not get distracted by any chippiness that you know will be present. It should be very exciting. Let's hope Nebraska's offense can set an early rhythm and keep it going and knock the "wind" out of the Hurricanes.
Hope you can join GFN at Coldbrew's in Roswell, 880 Holcomb Bridge Rd. this Saturday for the 3:30 kick-off. As always, come early for a good seat. Let's fill the place and "raise the roof" cheering for our beloved Huskers. Also, you can renew your Membership or join GFN, if you haven't done so in the past, and take a few chances on the Raffle. Let's fill the place so we can play the Big Board, too. More peeps, more fun!
Looking forward to seeing each and every one.
GO BIG RED!!!
