    Down With Nebraska

    I'm tired of talking about today's game....

    How about those Longhorns! I hate Texas as much as anyone, but its essential that Nebraska doesn't leave the Big 12 with any hardware. Big ups to Texas for beating the #5 Huskers in Lincoln! Here's hoping that OSU, Mizzou, and then we (just for good measure) ensure that Nebraska leaves the Big 12 with their tails between their legs.

    Re: Down With Nebraska

    I always used to root for Nebraska (old Big 8 team and North division) over Texas. Not today. They are dead to me. I consider them a B10 team, and could never root for a B10 team over the Longhorns, even though UT is my least favorite B12 team.

    Re: Down With Nebraska

    I have always rooted for Nebraska when they played Texas and that included the Big 12 Championship last year. This year was different and I am sure I dont need to go into detail why. I am happy Texas won and they deserved it. Of course there are some Nebbie fans blaming the refs...Bought off refs make all the difference in a close game. Typical crybabies...


    ďI told you, I donít care if youíre black or white. I donít care if youíre rich or poor. I donít care where you come from, whether itís Texas, Florida, California, or right here in the state of Iowa, I donít care about any of thatÖ But what I did care about is moving forward from that day on, that we were one team." -Paul Rhoads

    Neb fans are ridiculous. Texas has lost to UCLA and OU, and not beaten Rice and TT very convincingly. Yet, they claim that the refs made them lose? If Nebby was really #5 and Texas is unrated...they should beat them so badly that the refs can't have anything to do with it. Crybabies as usual....

    Eight dropped passes including two touchdowns. Yup, it was the fault of the refs. At least they consistently validate the reasons why we hate them.


    Dean Wormer was wrong. Fat, drunk and stupid was a great way to go through college (all five years of it).

    Love the quote by a Texas fan on there: "Besides, we didn't pay off the refs, we paid your WR's."

    Many more Husker fans are fully aware that the officiating did not cost us the game (though it was pretty poor at times). Nebraska beat themselves plain and simple with penalties and dropped passes.

    Re: Down With Nebraska

    Typical Neb'er claim, "we'll if we wouldn't have dropped eight passes, we'd of won" or "if we wouldn't have turned the ball over eight times, we'd of won, you got lucky". You lost. Do you think the other team had nothing to do with the dropped passes or turnovers? No if, then you're not only terrible you're also dumb.


    "I think that people are responding to someone standing up and saying this is what we want to do and let's not be afraid to go for it,'' Pollard said. "I think Iowa State has a very conservative, modest background. We never pound our chest and say `Let's do it.' It's OK to set a goal. You can't do it if you don't say what you want to do. You should be proud of it.''

    So are we to blindly assume that Texas didn't hurt themselves with some dropped passes, missed blocks, penalties, trying to cover punts with FG unit offensive linemen? The team with the better talent and coaching staff won the game.

    This.

    And I always throw in the tidbit that they are leaving because they wanted an easier football schedule. Case in point: Mack Brown's record versus kN.

    Yea, Niles Paul got the "announcer" jinx. Just like when an announcer says "this guy hasn't missed a free throw in 5 games" the guy usually bricks one. Yesterday it wasn't 2 minutes after they said Niles Paul was great and would be playing on Sundays, that he dropped a pass and his day was pretty much downhill from there. It's too bad he's a good kid but I swear he is good for a couple big mistakes every game thats televised.
