  1. Yup. This trophy is pure college football/fun/awesome. Let's make sure it doesn't disappear! Granted the big ten trophy games aren't meaningful trophies like a conference championship trophy or crystal ball are, but they are fun bits of what makes college football college football and what makes the Big Ten the Big Ten. Bits of Broken Chair was the only one for Nebraska that didn't seem completely forced. Let's bring in back and have some fun!
  2. Sign the petition so we can show the administration how many people want this trophy back! https://www.change.org/p/university-of-nebraska-athletics-department-bring-back-the-5-bits-of-broken-chair-trophy?recruiter=545534642&utm_source=share_petition&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=share_email_responsive
  3. Good article on how pre-season ranking love fest of the SEC (specifically s. carolina and A&M) has created the current SEC love fest at the top of the rankings: http://fansided.com/2014/10/22/texas-controlled-2014-college-football-season/
  4. These two pretty well covered your options for pre-gaming near the stadium. If you don't mind the cold, BWW is a good option with the large outdoor patio and right next to the stadium (seems to be taking over the big outdoor pregame role that Sally's used to fill). Also, if you want to tailgate and don't have a parking pass to one of the lots, the East River Flats parking lot offers a cheap option at $10 per car. It is not well advertised and most opposing fans never hear about it. It is about a 10-15 minute walk from the stadium (and I think there is actually a shuttle you can hop on som
  5. I think that I'm okay with it being like 1997 again...
  6. "I don't buy into that," Pelini said. "They can swagger all they want — they've got to execute. That's all we care about. I'm not even sure what swagger is. Whatever. You can swagger as long as we win football games." link
  7. Just thought I would bring this back from the grave just to remind us of how much better recruiting is going this year....
  8. Cyrus Hobbi would be nice as well
  9. Doc's Sports (docsports.com) lists us as a "Top Contender" for the BCS championship this year. Unfortunately I'm having a hard time taking this guy seriously. I like the hype, but after reading his analysis I think he may have only watched sun belt games and maybe the bowl game. Here's an excerpt: "They lost the nation’s best defensive player, but the D is deep, physical and experienced. And offensively they have one of the league’s best quarterbacks to go along with nine returning starters." Who knows maybe this guy knows something the rest of us don't. Let's hope someho
  10. "In anticipation to the kick-off of the college football season, we take a look back at past college football moments and how they impacted the face of the sport. Vote now and tune into College Football Live, Monday-Friday at 3:30 p.m. ET on ESPN for our experts take!" They pose this question: "Which team would have won had Michigan played Nebraska in 1997?" Even though , click the link below anyway: Vote Here In case you're not sure, the correct answer is

  12. Sorry for my second stadium themed post in a row. That being said I stumpled across this and thought it was amusing. Texas Tech is talking about expanding their stadium(http://www.depts.ttu.edu/communications/stadium/). They posted a couple "renderings" of what the stadium would look like. This is one of them: that crowd look a little familiar? apparently their crowd wasn't good enough to fill an imaginary stadium so that had to use ours. Photoshop a couple cornheads out and slap a TT over an N on one hat and call it good.
  13. I don't really have an opinion either way, just was curious to see what people thought now that we will be playing in stadiums that are all red already. But just to play devil's advocate, you did say "colorS" implying more than one color or more than just red, why not take pride in the others? I do think it is possible to take pride in tradition but also to realize that traditions to change with time and all traditions start somewhere. What would be wrong with starting a tradition of wearing a different color at 2 stadiums so that we don't look like fans of the home team. On the other
  14. Nebraska fans are used to wearing red wherever we go. Red won't exactly stick out in the crowd at Wisconsin or Ohio State. Do nebraska fans switch to black for these road games? White? Or do we stick with red and blend into the crowd? Wisconsin Ohio State
