OT: B1G Mascots "Call Me Maybe"

Thought the Nebraska mascot was pretty much the star of the video.


Edit:  Damn, embed fail.  Someone please assist.

I got a call from them a month ago about this silliness, but texted them back that I didn't have time for such shenanigans.


I told them if they wanted to do a parody of Brahms or Bach perhaps even some other scores from the Baroque period, I would be available at the end of the month. Of October.

If this is where we're at after 50,000 years of civilization, let's just give up. I'm serious, let's pack it in. It's not worth it. Let's just say the human race as an idea didn't quite work. It seemed good at first, we worked on it for a long time, but it just didn't pan out. We went to the Moon but still somehow wound up making this video. We just got mixed up somewhere. Let's just give it over to the insects or whoever else is next in line.

I would like to say that I completely understand the gigantic grin on the Nebraska mascot now - there is an extremely good reason to be upbeat on that campus. The butt wiggle of Mr. Buckingham U. Badger at the beginning also gave me an uneasy feeling for some reason as well, possibly because I suddenly thought, "This could be YOUR team's mascot..." and was extremely glad we don't have this problem and can comfortably laugh from a distance in this case.

Well.. I'm convinced. It looks like I'm going to Lincoln for the game this fall. And if the game comes down to Gibbons kicking a field goal, I won't be worried one bit.

I've been on UNL campus for a few days (visiting a now-ex). While there are some very attractive young ladies there, I will issue the standard "state school" proviso: Quality may vary.

There are some lookers there. But there's also some that'll just make you, well, look. In the "watching a slow motion train wreck" kind of way.

FWIW, Lincoln is a pretty nice city with a good bar scene. I'd enjoy going there for a game, but they take their football very personally. I went after football season, and a lot of people were out at the bars in Nebraska gear.

From my experience, that kind of enthusiasm is tempered when it comes to spending a night at the bar in Ann Arbor (when there isn't a major sporting event). And I've spent quite a few nights at bars in Ann Arbor.

1. I used to live there and there are hotties in Lincoln

2. Why is Bucky all alone? Really a poor showing by one of my faves

3. Sparty appears to have filmed his whole part in like a 45min window of the same evening

4. Surprise showing by Goldy

5. Iowa was lame

6. Lil' Red is legit, hilarious mascot

7. Why is the Nitty Lion doing so much yard work

8. Doesn't NWestern have a mascot? No cell phone?

9. Brutus was clearly not getting paid which upset him

10. Michigan does NOT need a mascot
