    Interesting Nebraska read

    Saw this on another site

    Nebraska may win another national title, but the days - 01.15.96 - SI Vault

    In addition

    Nebraska is 6-14 vs the Big12 South since 2004.
    4 of those 6 wins are against Baylor.
    So NU is 2-14 vs. Texas, TT, OU, OSU, and A&M since 2004

    Back when Nebraska was in favor of unequal revenue sharing.

    Re: Interesting Nebraska read

    I thought this part was interesting...

    "Sure, Nebraska will always be one of the most powerful programs in college football—along with teams like Florida State, Michigan and Notre Dame—..."

    Did the writer jinx those four programs that day?


    "I'm proud to lead this program and this team in whatever we do. Whether it's a community service project, or through practice or winning a bowl game, but you don't do that without the kids believing and being all in, and going out there and accomplishing all [of] the goals and expectations that we set." - Coach Paul Rhoads

    It is interesting that with no rule against partial qualifiers in place the Big 12's North Teams had four spots in the Top Ten. Right or wrong, maybe we bit the hand that fed us.

    No question. I am sure it was an easy sell to University Presidents and gave the South division an advantage in recruiting in and around TX.

    What's this we stuff, ISU had the toughest admissions standards in the Big 8! Walden complained about that more than the loss of scholarships (thanks Criner).

    Re: Interesting Nebraska read

    Looking back haven't we beat them twice in the last 6 years and should have beat them another time in a double OT? I am starting to think we will miss them on the schedule as they are a team we can compete with.
