-A video on Twitter was released yesterday regarding the film coming in December about the challenges Kurt Warner faced to get to the pros and the success that he had, and it seems quite…cheesy

Nebraska officially announces full capacity for Memorial Stadium for the Fall…but are they having trouble getting it sold out?

-This proves Jake right from weeks ago when he predicted there would be an official announcement from the university about capacity, and Sip said it was assumed at this point to be 100%…regardless, the news is official

-With the news was a package promoted to sell tickets to 3 different home games for fans, which led many to believe there is an issue with ticket volume being purchased…are we at a point where the sellout streak is really what defines Nebraska football?

The XFL has failed once again…is there a need to ever try another professional league besides the NFL ever again?

-The XFL announced over the weekend that not only were they not going to finish this year’s season, but they also have no plans for the league to return in general. It won’t be renewed for 2021.

-The AAF failed miserably after a few months, and the XFL didn’t even last that long. It’s not as good of football…is there any reason to try again for any of these leagues? It’s the NFL’s world.

-Also, SONG OF THE DAY (sponsored by Sartor Hamann Jewelers):

The XFL made its return this weekend…did you watch and do you care?

-The DC Defenders beat the Seattle Dragons, 31-19, in the first game on Saturday, and the Houston Roughnecks beat the Los Angeles Wildcats, 37-17, in day’s second game. There were 2 other games on Sunday, too

-Things people have liked: lots of mic’d up coach segments, the kickoff rule, and the focus on making gambling a part of the broadcasts. Still…the play isn’t great, and as Sip has said before, if the QBs aren’t good, then it won’t be that interesting. And the QBs have been….average at best. Also, why are we penalizing unnecessary roughness?
