Predictions 2021: Week Zero / Week One

Postby Cane from the Bend » Fri May 14, 2021 6:50 am

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

The 2021 Season is sneaking up on us [now under the 3 month marker]

I'm hoping this year `round, I won't have to do as much editorial wise. Though, I suspect that fewer games will be in question; rather moreso the query is likely to be centered on just how many people are going to be acceded to attend each venue.

As previous years, I am posting the games for Week Zero with Week One to fill out the field. It's a jump start with 30 games on the front load.

The Rules are as they have been. You have up until the first game's kickoff to get your predictions in --- You may change any pick up til then.

The first games is set for Saturday, August 28th --- Good Luck!

The truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end, there it is.

I also think Martinez is getting dangerously close to becoming the next Khalil Tate ... or Malik Rosier.

As per the article ...

Nebraska will also provide a free hot dog, popcorn and soda to those receiving tickets through the program.


Sounds like a cry for help.

I read where the Cornhuskers’ Athletic Director has resigned……. and believe it or not they have a replacement ready to fill the spot…… :shock:

Man, I though Daniel had it tough when he walked into the Lions Den…… :wink:
