Nebraska fans are ridiculous. In a good way.

Adrian Martinez is having a yard sale and it sounds like Nebraska fans are planning on showing up in droves.

Never did I expect that the NIL era would result in yard sales but yet here we are. Now that I think of it, I really should have expected this to happen.

My favorite thought is that this should attract two separate type of people. The first are those who are looking to meet Adrian Martinez and buy his used year. The second are the women who show up to each and every yard sale they can just so they can buy stuff because “it’s a good deal” and then put it in storage.
