No $$$ for the G.I. Joe with the Kung-Fu Grip??

"people who own the pork belly contracts are saying, "Hey, we're losing all our damn money, and Christmas is around the corner, and I ain't gonna have no money to buy my son the G.I. Joe with the kung-fu grip! And my wife ain't gonna f... my wife ain't gonna make love to me if I got no money!" So they're panicking right now, they're screaming "SELL! SELL!" to get out before the price keeps dropping. They're panicking out there right now, I can feel it."
Well, they sure are panicking out there. Billy Ray Valentine says "wait until Citigroup hits $10 before you should've cleared out all the suckers by then." Thankfully we can focus on college football instead of 401(k) statements and CNBC. Just a few quick notes on the upcoming Va. Tech game, that looks more winnable for the Huskers than it did at the start of the season. Steve Sipple of the Lincoln Journal-Star gives us a 65% chance to win this one. I'm going with a 75% probability of a Husker win for a couple of reasons. A nationally televised night game gives the Huskers a slight edge, but the lack of any Hokie passing attack will be the real difference. Key to this game will be turnovers and special teams play. If Nebraska doesn't turn the ball over and doesn't make any special teams blunders, I don't see Va. Tech scoring more than two touchdowns in this one. The Hokies have a mobile QB in Tyrod Taylor, but he has yet to show much of a threat with his arm. The Huskers have looked pretty good stopping the run so far this year, and with a bye week to get healthy for this one, I see a Husker win and return to the top 25 for a showdown with Mizzou.
