    “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.

    He’d persist for several more years, passing away in 1910. He’d quipped that he’d arrived with Halley’s Comet in 1835, and that he’d be both surprised and disappointed if he didn’t depart with it, as well.

    Sure enough, he died the day after the Comet’s closest approach to the Earth, April 21st, 1910. Talk about calling your shot! The point is that the press is far from infallible, and what makes for a sensational lede in a newspaper isn’t worth much if the underlying facts are incorrect or incomplete. (2016 has been quite a year for demonstrating the truth of that assertion). For the last week, following Nebraska’s blue-collar dispatching of Maryland in Lincoln, most of the media has been declaring the Huskers’ impen...

  • Closing Ranks - New BHF Editorial by Mark Solomon
    Solly

    “Once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more; Or close the wall up with our English dead.”
    1. Henry V, Act III, by William Shakespeare
    The battle rages all around, and comrades and foes alike fall all about you. But the line must hold, or all will be lost, so you do the only thing you can; you fill the hole with the next available able bodies, and as they fall, the next. And the next. At some point, the bodies aren’t so able, but they still step forward, some grimly, some with an odd serenity, some even with a smile…because it’s duty. It’s dedication to something larger than themselves. Something worth the risk, the pain, the sacrifice. Oftentimes, the sacrifice of the fallen themselves creates the motivation for the living to fill the breach and fight on, so that their sacrifice will not have been in vain. With few exceptions, history richly rewards the peoples or countries whose best shone through when things were at their worst, those who fought on from battle to battle until the greater war was won, be ...

  • Burn the Film…Burn the Boats. New BHF Editorial by Mark Solomon
    Solly
    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.”. He wasn’t referring to the outstanding athleticism and very sound execution from his own Buckeyes, which had been on display all evening long, as they laid ruin to a heart-wrenchingly-hapless Husker squad. He was talking about the sheer ineptitude, incompetence, and, sadly, hopelessness that bled from every pore of the NU team, as they stood like a deer in the headlights while OSU went up and down the field at will…all…night…long. 11 of 15 on third down conversions, plus 1 for 1 on fourth down – that’s 12 of 15 drives where NU’s defense couldn’t seal the deal – ZERO punts, 37:18 time of possession, 86 plays, 590 yards of total offense, 6 trips into the red zone, six scores, one long, debilitating “explosive” play after another, and, again, SIXTY-TWO POINTS. And that was just the offense. Two pick-sixes by the Buckeye defense – one on the very first NU offensive series of the game, adde...
