Because at the end of the day, the record is all that usually matters.
Those headed to watch Michigan State play Nebraska can fill up at Phat Jack's BBQ in Lincoln. The brisket is great. So are the ribs. But everyone lines up for the burnt ends. Alas, the only time I visited, the burnt ends were gone. I had arrived at 12:30 p.m. Phat Jacks opens at 11 a.m. That's how fast those burnt ends go.
