For those of you who may be new to the site, Benny was my blogging comrade in arms during MZone 1.0 from 2005 until early 2008. I continued for a few months after that then stepped away as well. When I started the blog back up last fall, Benny declined to return in order to have something called a life. Too many early mornings after a late night of MZone Photoshopping had him burned out. His keyboard was hung up for good.
But I did not give up. Ever since returning to the blogosphere, I have been begging and pleading with Benny to join me. To once again be bathe in the warm glow and acclaim that comes from putting up pictures of cheerleaders-turned-pornstars and having one's material stolen by Colin Cowherd. I wanted to get the band back together. For what was Simon without Garfunkel? George Michael without the other dude whose name nobody remembers from Wham!? But, alas, Benny always declined.
Benny agreed to come back just for the Nebraska Know Your Foe (probably to get me to stop begging and pleading with him). And while he called me numerous times during the week, bitching and complaining about agreeing to do this because of the time suck, I think he's finally excited to be back judging by the the email below which I got from from him at almost 1 a.m. this morning:
Take a look. Edit if you like, certainly for any errors. I have to wash the dishes and take a shower.
I hate you with the white hot intensity of a thousand suns."
Yep. As you can tell, Benny's excited as hell to be back. In fact, based on the above, I'm pretty, pretty, pretty sure he's going to tell me any day he's returning to blogging full-time. I can feel it.
So sit back, relax and enjoy our first Benny-penned KYF since 2008.

Academics – According to the most recent U. S. News' ranking of America's Best Colleges, Nebraska is 101st, by far the worst rating for any Big Ten school. Even Sparty is ranked 71st. Nebraska's tied in the rankings with such academic powerhouses as Florida State, NC State, Kansas, Oklahoma, Oregon, and Tennessee. That group might make up a good sports conference, but it’s far from Ivy League in the classroom. Maybe the N on the helmet stands for “knowledge" (I know: an oldie but a goody).
