    I may be an idiot

    I may be an idiot, but what does the k in kNebraska represent. I am assuming it is some sort of bash.


    Now that MBB is back, do we still have to pretend that WBB matters?

    yeah, i asked this a while back too. Now that I know what it "means" I still don't really get why it's so clever.

    It's from the joke:

    Q: What's the "N" stand for on the Nebraska helmet?
    A: "Knowledge"

    its funny if told right ... hence kNebraska on this board as a sign of disrespect like EIU

    Yeah, not clever. But when have you ever heard of anything coming out of that god forsaken state that was?

    Re: I may be an idiot

    This happened almost a year ago, when I was a newbie on this site. One of the Nebraska homers who used to frequently visit this site (I forgot which one and haven't seen him post recently) was running on about how great Nebraska was, all the tradition, and how smart they were. "After all, the 'N' on the helmet stands for knowledge..." Literally, this genius came on pro-ISU site and wrote that. A lot of us were thinking, "he didn't really just type THAT, did he?" You basically had to view that original post and the amount of reaming that guy took from us after it to understand why it's so funny (it's not so much the post itself but how we thoroughly embarrassed the guy and how he tried to defend himself in the process). Actually, it probably explains why you don't see that guy around here anymore. If you didn't read pretty much that entire thread after that post it's a cleverless, witless stab at Nebraska. If you read that thread it gets a chuckle...

    Hmmm...I wonder if that was discombobulated. If so, there's a reason you don't see him around here anymore.

    I don't recall the thread, hopefully someone does and links it so we can have a good laugh.
