The first order of business is to say a big, big, big, "Thank You All!!!" to the loyal Husker fans who came to Coldbrew's in Roswell last Saturday to cheer for our beloved young men. It was a very exciting, back-and-forth contest between two storied teams. The ending didn't quite go our way, live by the Hail Mary, die by it. Not withstanding, everyone had a fun time, and it was great seeing old faces and new faces, alike.
This week is a different story, for a couple of reasons. The first is that the opponent is South Alabama. No relation to the Crimson Tide. A relatively new program, but not without character and a few really good athletes, as well. The football program has only been in existence for a few years, but they have shown themselves to be a worthy foe. Played Bowling Green in a bowl game to end last season. Although they had a lot of seniors leave after that, they seem to have inherited a lot of transfers from the now-defunct UAB program. They appear to have great speed and like the big plays. If you look at what they did last year it is quite impressive. The Big Red had better not take them too lightly (read-McNeese State) or they could have a very long evening. Don't look ahead, Huskers, play this one first and all the way to the end.
The game kick-off is 8:00 this Saturday, I know, it sucks. Nothing we can do but deal with it. Coldbrew's in Roswell is the place, 880 Holcomb Bridge Road. Why not get there early, have dinner, and get ready to watch game number two of the 2015 Football Season.
Oh, yeah, the second reason. Remember last year when we had the 10:30 kick-off with Fresno State, and there was a Mayweather/Pacio fight on at the same time. Well, unfortunately, the Mayweather/somebody fight will be shown at Coldbrew's this Saturday night. The under-card starts about 8:30 and the main event will probably be around 10-10:30. They expect a lot of fight fans to crowd in between those hours. It could get kinda nuts. The football game will remain on, but on limited screens. I suggest everyone try to sit in the room with the big screen first. We may not be able to use that tv during the fight, but there's a lot of other tvs in that room to view the game. I know, it sucks, but there's really nothing we can do. If the game were at a different time, no problemo. Send your complaints to the B1G.
Anyhooo, I'm going to be there and make the best of it. Why don't you join me, it will be fun. Get there early as usual so you won't have to pay the cover for the fight. You'll get to see the game and a boxing match. It's his last fight before retiring, so he says. Maybe he'll get knocked out. Never know.
GO BIG RED!!!
