College football season is almost upon us, and this year the franchise is officially expanding. After COVID complications derailed efforts to host a game at an international locale last year, the pandemic has been around for so long that no one cares anymore. So get ready, those who are frustrated with their ruined plans to go to Ireland for the Nebraska-Illinois game, come to the Cornhuskers and the Northwestern Wildcats.

Everyone, grab your goblin-tinted Husker suit, bottle of Jameson, pint of Guinness, etc and get ready to face the locals. Dubliners are known for their politeness and considerable patience, so let’s check out how excited they are.

“If Aer Lingus and other corporate sponsors get into this toy want to give Irish sports fans an authentic college football experience, in all its exploits -of -they-besides glory, they chose wisely. “

It’s just an excerpt of Irish Times writer Dave Hannigan turns down Nebraska show before Herbie could put on her green overalls. Looks like Husker’s past sins have been diligently Googled and categorized.

If you’re a Big Red fan and don’t like masochism, look away.

Hannigan found only a few skeletons in the closet, and sadly he could find more.

He gave:

  • Maurice Washington saved the team in their opening game against South Alabama despite his involvement in revenge porn which got him suspended for one inning, and ultimately dropped from the team.
  • Lawrence Phillips broke into Scott Frost’s apartment and dragged his ex-girlfriend downstairs before banging her head on a mailbox
  • The university’s probation was the result of Frost’s illegal activities, which got him a 5-day ban, which Hannigan noted.
  • New Offensive Coordinator Mark Whipple suspended while at UMass for comparing a foul on one of his players to “rape”
  • Analyst attacks Ron Brown’s widespread, unchecked homophobia because the bible says “homosexuality is a sin”
  • The waste of human flesh (my words, not his) “fans” who told three of their players they deserved their hands off for kneeling in protest before while singing the national anthem before a game in 2016

Well, when you put it like that…

And that’s not including shots at recent school struggles and at the farce of American college athletics in general. “An organization with a proud (though not recent) history of winning” is a particularly hurtful statement, but ending it with “and an equally hard-won reputation for often doing the wrong thing when it matters most” is outright malicious.

A few corporations banding together to earn a few extra Euros and/or dollars from the wallets of more willing consumers is nothing new. It’s like any other promotion, and if what you’re promoting has a bunch of horrendous past crimes as well as a bunch of mills with a current face, the profit must outweigh the reaction. violently.

These are well-publicized, often overlooked incidents that most school advocates try to forget – or at most frown and shake their heads. We know why Husker went to Ireland, and Dave was on it too.

“There are sound financial reasons to bring this game to Dublin. Nebraska loyalists will travel a lot and spend a lot. The live TV broadcast will include lavish footage of Ireland’s scenic beauty and is sure to be a must-tweet to boot. “

I don’t know what the hell “twee shamroguery” is, but I guess it’s the cultural equivalent of wearing a sombrero on the Cinco de Mayo. Also, I’m using it, and his smack “Céad mile fáilte” – means “100,000 welcome”. Just figure out how to pronounce it.

It’s not every day that your team gets Gaelic, and even though I’m a Husker fan, I feel a certain kinship with Hannigan. Yelling into the void about the injustice of capitalist swindlers trading their integrity for a big profit is 3/4 of what I do.

So I apologize in advance, Dave. Football programming aside, the Nebraskans are generally good people. I don’t have any friends who are rich (or stupid) enough to be in the game, but I will remind those reading here not to plant any Irish car bombs.
