Let's Get Pasted is a place where we periodically post a collection of links, quick thoughts, and hopefully one day, a haiku.

Make sure to check out the Sooner SB Nation site this week for analysis, previews, or to talk some shit to some OU fans.  A warning for you though... they don't allow the cursing over there.

Orange-circle_medium Nebraska's Loss To Texas A&M: Big 12 Officiating Sucks But So Does Bo Pelini's Behavior - Corn Nation
I don't even know what to make of this.  I am totally fine with articles being written that throw out crazy theories for the sake of discussion, but the comment section response to this is unbelievable.  I know the average Nebraska fan has always been a little...um... let's say "devoted", but this is taking it to another level.  Apparently a decent percentage of them honestly think there is a conspiracy in play to prevent Nebraska from winning the Big XII.  For reals.  Just read through as many of the comments as you can in the linked article, and I'll meet you back here.

Welcome back.  So did your reading experience mirror mine?  Here was how mine went: 

First few comments:  Ok.. some of the crazies are out because they are upset about the loss.  It happens.
A few more:  Wow. There is a snowball effect going on here.
A dozen comments in: Jesus. I guess this thought process is more prevalent than I thought.
20 comments: Maybe I should look into getting my conceal and carry license for the Big 12 CG should we make it.
50 comments: I have lost all faith in humanity. That bottle of pills over there looks really tasty.

Joking aside... there is not a conspiracy Nebraska Fan.  Honestly.. none of the rest of the Big XII gives that much of a shit if you win the conference, and I really doubt Beebe or any of the other folks behind the curtain care that much either.  Sure we would rather you not win it, but you guys need to realize that NU football isn't that big of a deal outside of your state.. the rest of us would say "Aw, that kinda sucks that they won", then just move on.

Also, while I do not have the data to back this up... but I'm positive that the Nebraska coaching staff and fanbase is responsible for 61% of the officiating bitching in all of college football.  I seem to remember a few questionable roughing the passer calls that went in your favor when the Huskers were in Stillwater... sometimes you just come out on the short end of the officiating, it happens.  It also doesn't help when the official can't see though all the Pelini venom-saliva that was covering his face.  I must say... I will miss Pelini next season.... er... I mean.. I WILL FUCKING MISS THE FUCKING FUCK OUT OF BO FUCKING PELINI NEXT MOTHERFUCKING SEASON. There, that seems more appropriate.

Orange-circle_medium LSU's Craig Loston Annihilates Ole Miss Player With Probable Helmet-To-Helmet Hit - From Our Editors - SBNation.com
Ridiculous hit in the Ole Miss - LSU game. Surely a suspension is a coming for this.  It is on the level with the hit on Hudson from the Nebraska game.
