I didn’t know what to expect this week. After the terrible week at Penn State, there were a million ways to go with a story about the visiting team, so I wrote… nothing!

No wait! I have a good reason! The last time I wrote about the Huskers, I may or may not have mentioned a trap game that the Huskers may or may not have lost, which may or may not have happened on my birthday. So… yeah…

Sorry I just sighed so deeply that I blacked out. Where were we?

Luckily I didn’t have to wallow for too long before witnessing the spectacle of last Wednesday night at Penn State. The Board of Trustees went into damage control mode and fired Joe Paterno, turning the model of consistency in college football upside down.

You can see it in the rear view mirror, and you really want to pull over and take a good look. But it’s not worth it.

As the college football landscape continues to disintegrate, Husker fans might be tempted to look back and marvel at the mess they just barely escaped from.

Even I’ll admit the fireworks have been entertaining and that I’m a little ashamed to admit how much satisfaction I got from Dan Beebe’s overdue exit (However I’m not ashamed to admit I took my time coming up with a derogatory “Dan Beebe Got Fired” name for my Fantasy Football team).

Leaving the Big 12 was the best decision the Huskers could have made. Now that the move has actually happened, Nebraska needs to move on as well.
