But Wait, There’s More!

Earlier this week I got an E-mail from Jon Johnston, our fearless (i assume) leader here at Corn Nation. He said it was fine if I didn’t want to write another 5 reasons article, but I should write something. That’s when I realized I was being a real mopey shit. The easy thing to do is to wallow in the misery. The HARD thing to do is to look through the clouds for a ray of sunshine. And that is why I’m also going to add......

5 REASONS TO NOT LOSE FAITH IN THE HUSKERS!

But first, I have to do the other 5 reasons. I’ll keep it quick, like ripping off a band-aid.

5 reasons we lose.

  1. Offense- First QB starting a night game in Happy Valley? Not good.
  2. Defense- At least Diaco’s press conferences are “interesting”.
  3. Coaching- See above.
  4. Injuries- Starting QB and RB out. Gifford out, even the holder has been hurt.
  5. Lucky bounces.- We haven’t been getting them.

NOW for the important part.

5 REASONS TO NOT LOSE FAITH IN THE HUSKERS!

  1. It’s clear the University knows there is a problem- Better to do something than nothing.
  2. The football program is far less toxic then three years ago.- I highly doubt we’ll be hearing a profanity laced secret tape of Riley ripping the fans. Diaco on the other hand....
  3. We’ve somehow kept the sellout streak going the last 15 years- No other fan base would do this. Not sure if this is a good or bad sign honestly.
  4. At least we aren’t Iowa- Right?
  5. The hottest candidate for ANY college job next season is a Nebraska Alum. - And hey, if we don’t get Frost, Carl Pellini is available.
