    Turn Our Backs

    Call me crazy, but I feel and as well as my husband. For who will be attending the Nebraska game. As the Huskers enter the field we should all turn our backs to them. Good idea or really dumb?

    That still wouldn't put us on an ESPN highlight reel.

    Re: Turn Our Backs

    good idea but i doubt we could get all the isu fans to do it. not everyone would be able to know about it unless you had a bunch of people running around at the tailgate spreading the word. plus, the university wouldnt support the "poor sportsmanship" on display. its not like they can say over the loudspeakers "please rise and turn your backs as the nebraska cornhuskers enter the field"

    I doubt they would care. It is not the players that made this choice, it was way above them.

    I could care less. Can't blame them for taking a better deal, we would jump at a better opportunity too if we could.

    Turned backs, total silence. Sounds fun.

    I like the idea of silence, just pure nothing. Don't give them anything to get them riled up.

    Re: Turn Our Backs

    I like the idea of us not allowing them access to any tickets..and I mean ANY tickets. The only Fuskers that get into Jack Trice come from people buying the tickets online or from friends. Cut off access to the Nebraska athletic department getting tickets. I can't wait to see what Pollard comes up with here.

    I'm hearing that Nebraska's revenue is to jump about $8 million a year by moving to the Big 10.

    Can you honestly say that you wouldn't leave the current situation you're in for more money offered to you, no matter how it might affect those around you?
