The 2015 Red-White Spring game is here! Enjoy it - this is the closest thing we will have to real football for several long months. Husker Mike published the rosters earlier today. Jon wrote up "For what will we cheer" post and most of you want to see the quarterbacks (based on the poll results). I am personally aghast there was no choice along the lines of "something something linebackers something tackle something", but that is just me.
It seems likely the crowd will top 70,000.
