The best thing happing to the Big12
fuskers taking a walk and getting their *** kicked every Saturday
Wow. Thank you too for that one last look at the level of class your football fans have. No need to thank us for beating Texas for you in your last year in the Big 12. We know that you would have never beaten them again if you had stayed.
No hard feeling on you leaving either. I'm sure Iowa State would have joined the Big 10 also had they been asked. Not that you were asked to join, more like begged to be let in. Thats ok though. We're not judging you for running from your problems. Most people might judge you for throwing aside tradition and honor because of money and shame but we won't. Stay classy nebraska.
I hope Nebraska kicks the **** out of the Big 10, but only because I hate them a little more than Nebraska.
Good riddance, and eat ****. I've never seen a group of people so incapable of humility as Husker fans. Even when they try to be nice, they're so ******* arrogant that they sound like dicks.
I won't miss tailgating at the lamest stadium in the Big 12, thats for sure. Just wait, someday you might be able to actually drink a beer at a Nebraska game without hiding it in a cup.
I will miss playing NU in basketball, even on our down years (OK, the last 6 years) NU was always good for a win or two a year.
You guys, KSU, KU, OU, Okie Lite, the MUles, TT, Texas, ATM, BAY are nothing like this at the games. Hell even CU can be placed in the moderate category in regards to fan treatment at the games.
NU fans are about to be in for some different scenery going forward at OSU, Mich, Penn St. Iowa, probably harmless.
I've only been treated poorly at 2 stadiums: Kinnick and Floyd-Casey. I've been to Lincoln, Manhattan, Columbia, College Station, and Austin and was treated well. I think people are generally friendly to road fans.
If Iowa State was actually Nebraska's "little brother", then I'd imagine it would look something like this:
Which I think is fitting given the recent news of UNL not having enough "Nowledge": http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/0..._n_855730.html
Don't get too comfortable in the big 10, you already got kicked out of the academic fraternity that every big 10 school is a member of. Yeah, I know, football is all that matters but it's nice to see Nebraska being recognized as the juco it is.
It wasn't lost on Lincoln last week when Nebraska became the first school stripped of its membership in the prestigious, research-based 62-school Association of American Universities, a position it had held since 1909, and that the AAU review committee was chaired by Larry Faulkner. And that the current AAU president is Bob Berdahl.
Both are former University of Texas presidents.
That raised eyebrows, but Nebraska athletic director Tom Osborne isn't pointing fingers.
"I don't think that's had any legs as far as we're concerned," he said. "Harvey Perlman (Nebraska's chancellor) is more plugged in than I am, and he didn't feel it was any Big 12 or University of Texas move to oust us. It (losing the status) does hurt, though. It was sort of a blow to our perception and pride."
Nebraska, which had been a member for more than 100 years, lost its good standing in part because agricultural research grants aren't counted among the criteria for admission.
The AAU was founded in 1900 and includes 60 of the top research institutions in the country, as well as two in Canada. Every Big Ten school is a member. In the Big 12, Texas, Texas A&M, Kansas, Missouri and Iowa State are in.
