    Nebraska Fans '08

    I just wanted to rant about Nebraska fans since they have been really annoying to me today. I am sure that everyone is aware of having at least one encounter with an over zealous NU fan...but they are really starting to get ridiculus for the '08 Season.

    First, they haven't played anyone yet. Secondly, they have their first 5 GAMES at HOME. I also looked to see that they have 8 home games for the year, more than any other Big 12 School....surprise-surprise. I hate the history rants they get into...and the crap talking about MU and KU as of late too. (Not that I am a KU or MU guy...but give them their due for last year.)

    Anyway, the fans I have encountered think that they have already "restored the order" this year. Wow.... I'm sorry, I do try to "root on" our fellow conference members, but have a tough time rooting for Nebraska. I dislike them a lot. I feel that VT is going to beat them Saturday too. I also believe that they will not beat the likes of CU, MU and KU this year in the North.

    I'll stop...sorry this is getting long. Any thoughts?

    Re: Nebraska Fans '08

    yeah I have a close friend who is a Nebraska fan who after some lower ranked teams in the top 25 lost kept saying how Nebraska should be put in their places in the top 25 - all I could think was who the heck have they beaten to back that thought up? but I didn't start to ask so I wouldn't waste 25 minutes of my life hearing about Nebraska's glory, return to glory, glory days, times they achieved glory, or anything else glorious.

    Re: Nebraska Fans '08

    I have been hearing since June how Nebraska will win at least 9 games. Its funny how they predict wins. Just because Nebraska beat the likes of the old Big 8 for a number of years, the fans automatically notch a win against all those schools. Especially since I am residing in Omaha, nothing is better than seeing Nebraska go 5-7.

    Re: Nebraska Fans '08

    All they are is Hawk fans who live in Nebraska so they are Nebraska fans. Hawk fans thought they should be rated after beating Maine, Some other team I have no idea who they are, and ISU who went 3-9 last year. Then they get beat by a Pitt team who is not that good this year.

    Re: Nebraska Fans '08

    it seems that kNU always has a lot of home games....

    the typical, predictable reaction of kNU fan, when their program is down, is to just bring up the history of the program... "back to back national champs! .... or 5-time national champions!!..." or some ridiculous sellout streak... of course those are nice things to look back on and who wouldn't like to have a program with a storied past, but most fans involve themselves more with the team of the present and their future possibilities, not what some team did 30 yrs ago.... it's kinda like the current economic situation and the pending depression... we'll all be able to look back and say "man, we HAD a great society and economy and world status!, and China/India, pfff, just a bunch of jonnie-come-lately's"


    I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around the banks will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.

    Re: Nebraska Fans '08

    Honestly, 8 freaking home games? 5 in a row at home to start the season? How did they manage that?

    Also, does anyone think they'll lose to VT this weekend? VT is not that great this year, but I see 'em getting Nebraska.

    Re: Nebraska Fans '08

    Here is some Ammo.

    a) Pelini talks about Integrity, but yet he let "Stinky Fingers" Christensen back on the team. So much for Integrity.
    b) "PornHusker" Scandal is a fun one to bring up. Both wrestlers posing on a gay porn site.

    Basically, the Virgina Tech game will tell alot. If NU loses, they are looking at 4 or 5 wins. If NU wins big, they could win 7 games. I don't see more than that for wins.

    Re: Nebraska Fans '08

    So basically ... Nebraska fan '08 is pretty much the same as Nebraska fan '07 and prior.

    As much as I love Cyclone Fanatic, it is only my second favorite website. The guy who writes this blog has Creighton basketball fans, I mean Nebraska Football fans dead to rights. Reading it will make you feel better.

    Except for USC the last couple of years they just pay teams to come play them. They never go there to play unless it's a bigger school they set up a two year deal with. As I recall, they have done this quite a bit in the past. They probably will have to go to VA Tech next year, but, I didn't check.

    Re: Nebraska Fans '08

    Is it also coincidence that Nebraska NEVER has to play OU and Texas in the same regular conference football season? Let alone both on the road once every four years. Keep living in the past kNU.

    I'm sorry to say but they will prolly beat Va Tech tomorrow. However, Missouri will destroy them in Lincoln and that will be fun to watch.
