    Before I moved to nebraska I too was skeptical about why the hell people would eat cinnamon rolls with chili. Then the #HUSKS told me to try it so I did. 10/10 would try again.

    You don’t necessarily eat it atop the rolls. You eat them concurrently. Like a sweet and spicy/salty combo.

    Bread served with chili typically becomes employed in sopping up the chili at some point. Does the cinnamon roll serve a similar function?

    I’m pretty neutral on chili. I like it but never crave it or when deciding what to eat say “I’m in the mood for chili”

    But the best carb for chili is oyster crackers


    I have a feeling that’s blasphemous or something.

    Or went to an auction or other outdoor fall event where a grandma is selling chili out of a giant roaster for like .50 a bowl?

    I'm basically this. Once or twice in the fall for a football Saturday I crave it when the weather's right. I end up making one big batch and eating enough of it as leftovers to be good for the next year.

    That’s made up. I have never heard of that, let alone anyone who thinks it’s normal.

    I understand the cinnamon roll. All of the Cincinnati-style chilis (Skyline, Gold Star, Empress) use cinnamon and it’s awesome.

    I like the latter better than the former after trying both. Cinnamon in chili is too overpowering to me. But I'm an eat concurrently and not mix them type of dude except for the very end of the bowl.

    One positive and one negative of getting older (though there are many more for both sides):

    - Positive- I have enjoyed getting older and realizing most everyone's family is just as fucked up as mine. As a kid you are scared to talk about it because you think you are the outlier and your family is fucked up. But as an adult, you realize you aren't the only one and there is comfort in knowing that.

    - Negative- Been working my butt off recently to lose some weight (newly single so have to get my fatass back in shape) and after basically 2 back-to-back long weekends of partying, I am back to being up 5 lbs from where I started. It really sucks how difficult it is to lose weight and how easy it is to toss it back on.

    On the latter, let it also serve as a reminder when you find a new partner. I’ve been married for nearly 13 years. At 6’1” I was 205 about 7 years ago, which is the most I’d ever weighed. I was lucky to find an activity(climbing) that not only works as a workout but I enjoy enough to drive me to maintain a certain fitness level.

    It only gets harder, like you said, as you get older...so find something besides picking up girls that drives you to maintain fitness.

    On cinnamon rolls, would orange rolls be acceptable?

    I am a HUGE fan of orange rolls and have been known to have some in the fridge on occasion. Can’t remember if I ever had a tube primed and ready at the same time I was cooking a batch of chili.

    I remember staying over at a friends house for his birthday sleepover as a child. I was so pumped that his parents decided to feed us donuts and Pepsi for breakfast. I threw up shortly thereafter.

    The ol' contrarian personality huh Celemo? Both sides of family from Ohio. Personally spent a large chunk of your adolescence living in Nebraska. As an adult, lives in Oregon.

    What, I'm sure is intriguing to you is that at minimum, a handful of Beaver starters the next several years are ex-Husks.

    You keep up on their news much? I'm curious which of the guys who transferred out of our program and into theirs will be impact players for them.

    If we want opinions on inbreeding we’ll consult the Alabama contingent, until then leave the cinnamon roll and chili debate to the midwesterners.
