Long night at the office

Article Image Alt Text

It’s 15 minutes until kickoff between LSU and Clemson and I’m still trying to get the image out of my head of what Joe Burrow would look like in a Husker uniform. I know, I  know...just let it go.
6:55 pm: Lee Corso puts on a LSU mascot head. First time in my life I’ve seen Nick Saban smile.
7:06 pm: Our President and the First Lady are introduced, walking onto the field for the National Anthem. Are they going to sing? Sure hope not. Melanie looks like she really doesn’t want to be here.
7:12 pm: An ESPN camera guy or gal actually gets knocked over when LSU takes the field. Sorry dude, what did you expect standing right in front of the team?
7:26 pm: Chris Fowler says Joe Burrow wasn’t recruited to his dream school, Nebraska. Great. Thanks for the reminder. At least he didn’t say he wasn’t recruited twice.
