2008 Nebraska Spring Game: For What Will We Cheer?

The first play of the first spring game with new head coach Bill Callahan in 2004 was a play-action pass. Joe Dailey reared back and threw the ball deep. Husker fans cheered loudly and the pass fell incomplete. Perhaps it was a foreshadow of Callahan’s reign at Nebraska.

Seems like a long time ago.

This Saturday we’ll have the first play of the new Bo Pelini era, Husker Extra hints that it’s "special".  I find myself wondering what we’ll cheer for - and I don't mean your usual 70,000 person loud cheer, I mean that thing that makes us all stand up and roar.

Since it’s a sell-out it and the teams are evenly matched, it should have the feel of a true game day. Thank you God for that feeling.
