  1. You have some good points and for the most part I agree with you, but being from a Husker fan from Nebraska I feel that he isn't helping our image none. That's just me though; it seems that most people don't feel the way I do. But why would Raiola and Vanden Bosch be more of a reflection than Suh? He certainly isn't hurting it. I haven't read one article about how Suh's "troubled" NFL career is taking recruits away from Nebraska. Neither have I, but my opinion is the minority and I have nothing to do with recruiting and I don't follow it that much. My view point is from a Husker fan that was born and raised in Nebraska, so I see his actions in the NFL as WTF? If he has maturity issues then what the hell was doing in college? Where you are supposed to learn how to be an adult. He could be struggling with the schemes offenses are putting in to deal with his physical abilities, maybe the higher level he is playing against, or perhaps coming to realize just how much money was thrown at him at a young age.

I am new here, and to the Nebraska fan base and am learning as I go but how is....heads down, mouths shut (well not Raiola), do their job on the field, leaders on their side of the ball, hard work and dedication to their craft, level headed, professionals on the field.
  3. I would have to disagree that Suh's actions are a reflection on either the Nebraska program or on Jim Schwartz. There are plenty of players on the Lions team that do not allow the opponent to get under their skin to the point that they retaliate in this fashion. Suh is aggressive, plain and simple. Some of his actions come with the territory and he is going to get penalized and fined from time to time. Some of the things he has been penalized and fined for are BS too, but they come with the reputation of being aggressive. We Detroit fans can live with some of this stuff, but the 'stomp' did not sit well. Especially his explanation, and refusal to take responsibility for his actions. Suck it up, tell us you made a mistake and lets move on! Maturity appears to be his issue. As far as a reflection on the Nebraska program. For those that must say Suh reflects poorly on Nebraska, Dominic Raiola and Kyle Vanden Bosch also play here and just my opinion, they are more of a reflection on Nebraska than Suh.
  4. The BCS is a total Sham. Most of us have known it for years, but they have truly been exposed this year with these bowl match-ups. PATHETIC! U of M (yes my team) does not deserve a BCS bid, Va Tech at least finished second in their conference. And the team to the south of us playing on New Years Day? They should be at the Motor City Bowl.
  5. I agree with the earlier statement about the SEC limiting the over-signing will help change the playing field a little, now they just need to lay off the Ju-Co practices and perhaps boost the academic's a little and things will level out even more. Urban going to columbus was a nightmare for us when we were saddled with rich-rod, now its not so scary. Lots of ohio talent will stay home now and there will be a smattering of those with questionable academics and backgrounds that some how become eligible.
  6. Simple, we always suck when we play at Kinnick. Must be the pink locker-room.
  7. For the most part (98%) Nebraska fans were welcomed and wished a enjoyable time, yep there is that 2% and they are in/around every stadium. As far as the SWAT goes, actually that was a mild/reserved presentation. You should have seen the Notre Dame game where there was a threat, Heavily armed swat, 3 helo's at all times and snipers on the roof tops. Bags have not been allowed in the stadium since 9/11. I will issue a word of warning to Husker fans about traveling to certain B1G venues, BE CAREFUL! I have encountered the threat of violence at Michigan State, Wisconsin, Purdue and that place to the south. Seen vandalism of visiting team vehicles and of course the complimentary bags/cups of urine thrown. Husker fans, those of you that visited were great people supporting your team, I applaud you. Lets hope we have some great games in the future.
  8. NU 20 Iowa 14 Rushing 220 Passing 98 Iowa has a strong front 7 but they lack considerable speed. Nebraska should be able to run to the outside with relative ease.
  9. Good afternoon all, I wanted to take the time to say thank you to Nebraska football fans. I attended the game on Saturday and was very impressed with your traveling fan base. From everything I saw Nebraska fans were welcomed and treated well, mostly because you were NOT pompous, arrogant idiots. You came to see a football game and support your program. You cheered your team and traded friendly banter with our fans. It is nice to see a team and its supporters come here and be good sports fans. I have heard Lincoln is a great place to see a game and hopefully someday I will travel there to support my team. Looks like you have a great traveling base. I wish you and your program luck against Iowa next week and look forward to our teams meeting at your house next year.
