Nebraska Football vs Michigan State: CRUSH THOSE SPARTANS GAME THREAD

It’s Senior Day. No... not your dementia. The young guys for whom this is their last game.

This is from our beloved community member Redvalley from last night’s thread. I think it echoes what many of us are thinking about today’s senior day:

We say goodbye to the seniors who suffered more losses during their career of any senior class since 1936. But these guys personified what Nebraska football is about. Never give up, in all kinds of weather…seasons…coaching changes. They stuck it out and stayed true.

Frost said that the turnaround from our 0-6 start rests firmly on their shoulders. They were the bricks that laid the foundation.

It might be the greatest Senior Day reception from the crowd ever. I hope so.

Add in the Foltz-Stadler tribute, and tears will be freezing to faces.

Then we’ll kick some Spartan ass.
