    Nebraska fans

    Just got a tweet from a friend who is stuck at the Houston airport flying to San Diego. Not a husker fan but is stuck their with a ton of them and they have no idea when they will be able to get out.
    The original flight left Omaha this morning, got there late, but the flight to SD for some reason left early.
    So basically a planeload of husker fans stuck still in Houston that probably won't make it to SD for the Holiday bowl tonight.


    Exaggeration is a BILLION times worse than understating.

    As long as they're out of Omaha for a few days, I don't care where they go.

    Honestly though, that would really suck and I feel bad for those that spent money on flights and tickets to not make the game.

    I was told that their band will also be missing from the game because weather prevented them from being able to leave with enough time to make it there.

    Living in Omaha and having many friends who are Husker fans, that would really suck. However, who in their right mind flies out the morning of the game, especially out of the midwest in late December. You are rolling dice expecting to have flights on-time this time of year.

    Re: Nebraska fans

    My brother is a huge Nebraska fan and if it were him stuck in Houston I would still find it comical. I guess it would be one of those funny stories (to me) families share on the holidays.

    Makes you wonder why they decided on flying out the day of the game.

    Re: Nebraska fans

    They probably don't have many options other than:

    - Return home and rave about the fantastic Tex-Mex food that they enjoyed in Houston.

    - Organize a group tour of NASA.

    - Book a flight to Tempe and cheer on the Cyclones.

    Clearly there is only one real choice.

    Don't feel sorry for any NU fan, they deserve what ever they get.
