    Getting Huskers to SHUT UP

    i've been fighting all morning with the ignorant nu fans in my office, and let me tell you i am way too out numbered. their main argument is "Sam Keller for Heisman" and they dont quite seem to understand when you explain to them that he wasnt even good enough to start at asu, not to mention win the heisman. so i printed out copies of this article and put it on their desks. needless to say, it has been rather quiet for the last half hour.

    But but but the Neb unproven QB is even better than the backup Iowa QB. And we all know the #1 QB in the nation is always Iowa backups. They tell me that everyday.

    Re: Getting Huskers to SHUT UP

    Usually if I want NU fans to shut up I just use a word with more than 2 syllables or ask them about their sister. Works pretty well on EIU fans too.

    Re: Getting Huskers to SHUT UP

    Lately you just wait till the end of the season when the NU fans are on suicide watch for another 9-3 season... Well lately I think they'd take 9 wins again. I can't see Callahan lasting too much longer there if they keep finishing with the win totals they have latley.

    I don't know....I see neb being ranked this year again, and easily taking the big12 north. They should go to the big12 champ game and fight against a south team they could possibly beat. Neb will be 1 win away from a BCS bowl this year, I think they lose the big12 champ game, but that should keep even NU fans happy.

    Re: Getting Huskers to SHUT UP

    Perhaps it's been quiet because their still working on reading that article. "the" is a tricky word you know. I often find myself going "tuh-he" when I come across it.

    I also live in Omaha and the last I knew Keller hadn't even won the starting job as apparently at least one other Nebraska QB was providing some competition for the starting job. You should remind them that Keller needs to become the best quarterback in Nebraska before they start mentioning his name as a contender for the Heisman.

    Re: Getting Huskers to SHUT UP

    You know you're from Nebraska when:

    1. Your idea of a traffic jam is ten cars waiting to pass a tractor on the highway.
    2. "Vacation" means going to Omaha for the weekend.
    3. You measure distance in hours.
    4. You know several people who have hit deer more than once.
    5. You often switch from "heat" to "A/C" in the same day.
    6. You use a down comforter in the summer (because you run the A/C at 55 degrees).
    7. Your grandparents drive at 65 mph through 13 feet of snow during a raging blizzard, without flinching.
    8. You see people wearing hunting clothes at social events.
    9. You install security lights on your house and garage and leave both unlocked.
    10. You think of the major food groups as beer, beef, and beans.
    11. You carry jumper cables in your car and your girlfriend knows how to use them.
    12. You design your kid's Halloween costume to fit over a snowsuit.
    13. Driving is better in the winter because the potholes are filled with snow.
    14. You think sexy lingerie is tube socks and flannel pajamas.
    15. You know all 4 seasons: almost winter, winter, still winter, construction
    16. It takes you 3 hours to go to the store for one item even when you're in a rush because you have to stop and talk to everyone in town.
    17. You actually understand these jokes and forward them to your friends from Nebraska.

    I think that's a general list of people living in the midwest.

    I was going to say the same thing. Most of those things sounded pretty darn familiar.

    A lot of NU fans think this will be Callahan's last year. They feel he will either have them playing well enough to nab an NFL job and leave, or they will do poor enough (in NU-relative terms) to justify ousting him. Might be tough to oust him as he is like a three-legged race with their AD.

    How do you get Husker fans to shut up?

    Beat them on the field.

    Doesn't work. The year we destroyed them at JTS there were a bunch of drunk ones still running their mouth on the way out to the parking lot. I stick by my BIG WORDS strategy.

    Re: Getting Huskers to SHUT UP

    Dinger7203,

    Hate to kill your arguement, but, Sam Keller DID start at ASU until he got hurt. Rudy Carpenter, another very good QB came in in relief and had a great 5 or 6 games. Sam Keller came out of the following Spring Practice as the number 1 over Carpenter. In the Fall Dirk Koetter named Sam Kellar the #1 and Rudy and his parents threatened to Transfer. Since Sam Kellar was a Sr and Rudy a Soph....Keotter caved made Rudy the #1 and Sam transfered to NU, ultimatley one of the decisions that let t Koetter getting fired. So, unfortunaltley u are wrong saying Sam was not good enought to start at ASU. Keller is a very...very good QB. Is he Hiesman worthy.....no...no...no...but he will be very good, but so is Joe Ganz so there will be a QB battle at NU in the Spring.....
