Nebraska’s Spring Game Sells Out in Five Days

Nebraska and Iowa fans agree: that’s incredible

Hot on the foot of Nebrasketball’s latest collapse, the football coaches took to Twitter Wednesday night to applaud Nebraska fans for their continued commitment and passion for the football program.

With spring game tickets only going on sale to the public that morning at 10am, Nebraska had already sold eighty-thousand tickets.

Eighty. Thousand. In 36 hours.

For a practice! At roughly $10 a ticket, we basically just paid Chinander for a year, y’all!

Of course, not *just* Nebraska fans are impressed by this.

Iowa fans are also really excited!

They’re even wishing Nebraska, their second favorite team behind Iowa State, good luck in the coming season!

Here’s one who is really impressed that Nebraska fans stick together in all kinds of weather, a decidedly un-Iowa thing to do, I guess!

Another one who is really excited for a Nebraska win!

It’s really amazing how Iowa fans can take a moment out of basking in the glory of a 9-4 season and win over Mississippi State to worry about losing their winning streaks in February. Don’t worry guys, you’ve got a few more months to go! (These guys really like the Cyclones. No wonder we’re not rivals.)

This Iowa fan is confused about Nebraska’s history with spring games! We’ve actually sold it out several times, silly goose! (PS it’s been 36 hours, not 12!)

Isn’t it great that Iowa fans care so much?

What are we going to do with this rent money?

I’d say we could return the favor and buy tickets to Iowa’s game, but it’s free, and with less than ten thousand taking in last season’s “game”, I’m guessing there’s no hurry.

By Thursday night, only obstructed view seats remained. And now... even those are gone.

Anyways, you should have gone ahead and bought your tickets so you don’t have to deal with the scalpers. They probably root for Iowa and go to Creighton.

Go Big Red!
