Fix The Defect



I go by the username Section 37 because that is where I sit in North Stadium. And I have a difficult choice to make in the coming weeks and months: do I renew my season tickets or not?

I am not some corporate big-shot who leases a skybox just for the tax write-off. I work a factory job. The season tickets, the donation to keep my seat, and my parking spot in Haymarket amounts to a pretty good chunk of money for a guy like me.

At my factory job, our bosses demand quality. There must be zero defects in our products because that's what our customers demand. And in the case of Nebraska Football, I am not just a fan, I am also a paying customer. And what I see on the football field is a defective product.

Before everyone freaks out about that last sentence, let me add some context. Football teams lose, so there's an element of assumed risk. But when you take into account the blowout losses, and the majority of Nebraska's losses in the Bo Pelini era have been blowouts, every nerve fiber in Husker Nation's collective body should be telling it something's VERY broken and needs to be fixed. And let me take this a step further. That loss to Wisconsin in the B1G Championship wasn't just a rout. The Nebraska football team was EMASCULATED. I'm sorry, I can't be polite about this. Even a male dog that just got home from the vet would have said, "well at least they gave me anesthesia."

Here's the challenge to the powers-that-be in the football program and the athletic department: fix the defect or I will not buy from you anymore.

Bo Pelini constantly talks about execute, execute, execute, and the process, the process, the process. With that, I have these words for Bo courtesy of Monty Python And The Holy Grail:
