  1. The Long, Dark Path Back to the Light - New BHF Editorial by Mark Solomon


    “Americans love a winner and will not tolerate a loser. Americans play to win all the time. That's why Americans have never lost and will never lose a war. The very thought of losing is hateful to Americans. Battle is the most significant competition in which a man can indulge. It brings out all that is best and it removes all that is base.”

    “The reports of my death are greatly exaggerated.” – Mark Twain, 1906


    Twain sent this characteristically-pithy retort via cable from London to the press in the United States after he’d caught wind of his obituary having been erroneously published in several newspapers back home.

  4. Burn the Film…Burn the Boats. New BHF Editorial by Mark Solomon

    Well…that didn’t go very well.

    Ohio State Head Coach Urban Meyer, after striding off the field following a 62-3 shellacking of Nebraska, stated flatly during his postgame press conference, “I didn’t see this coming.”, and “That’s not what we saw on film.”.

  5. No “W” in “R-E-S-P-E-C-T” - New BHF Editorial by Mark Solomon

    The last couple of weeks, we’ve all heard a lot of discussion among college football fans and punditry as to of whether the 2016 Nebraska football team “belonged” in the Top Ten. Some was less discussion that derision, rife with sarcasm and even giggling ridicule from ESPN’s “College Gameday” crew.

    The answers ranged from the depths of “No way!” to the tepid height of “Not yet.”, with no statements, assertions or analyses lacking a healthy dose of “but” sprinkled throughout. The final ...
