|B-REP Nation's homage to food|
loved by the people of a town where
it's already winter
If there's a constant in B-REP Nation it's that we're going to have a nice time and enjoy each other's friendship and company because, candidly, there's nothing on the football field worth watching at this point as we clearly roll to a 1-11 record.
It has gotten to the point where all of the best things for us happen before kick-off.
Sleeping on it for a night, it's clear that we're back to Shea-era ineptitude, with inconsistency at the quarterback spot, lines that can't seem to block or rush the passer, passivity on offense and defense, and as John alluded to, zero tolerance for risk; Flood at least gambled from time to time.
Ash is entirely vanilla, unless you like 1-yard out routes and never sending the kitchen sink at the opposing quarterback.
But, hey, on the bright side of things...
Saturday came with tasty buffalo wings as an appetizer, followed by the beef with weck that seemed to go off pretty well and was an easy prep.

Pete and Larry did an outstanding
job flattering our youth with the ceremonial presentation of the Shane and David heads. B-REP did his best to get on the jumbo-tron and ESPN 8 coverage with slick dance moves, though we learned from yesterday that we'll have to get more people involved to get attention in the elbow-to-elbow crowd of 2,252 loyal fans who stayed until the fourth quarter.
As I sure Jennifer and Dave can attest, as parents it's awesome when your kids are embraced so much by our friends that they're eager to suck it up and give up sleeping in on a Saturday just to sit through awful football, yet still come away with a great experience and added confidence.

With that in mind, we face another beat-down this coming Saturday vs. Indiana on another noon kickoff.
The Indiana fare is sorta "meh" -- corned beef and cinnamon pancakes being the sorta "pig-out" foods that are big on the IU campus. If y'all wanna do one or the other that's fine, but I'm not wed to those ideas and wonder what folks are thinking.
Pat's subs -- an easy order and pickup? Burgers?
Let's get the banter going and see what folks have in mind.
And by all means drop in your best photos here from Saturday.
