The moment you wait for every season is upon us! THE BATTLE FOR NU!

I know that some of you will be anxious about today's game. I know that some of you won't care because you feel like this Nebraska team has let you down or (let's be honest) isn't good enough to be worthy of your attention.

A long time ago (even before I was born, so you know it's a long time), Bill Jennings said "We can't feed the ego of the state with the football team". Then along came Bob Devaney and Tom Osborne and they did just that. Since then, we've been waiting for someone to do it again.

I know that if Nebraska loses this game today, it'll be about the end of the Pelini era. That would be sad, because it involves losing.

It's easy to be bitchy and moany. It's tough to stand in there when you don't know or things aren't easy. Stick together, mother fuckers. Nebraska football is all we got.
