The Connor Happer show sent out a tweet yesterday asking each and every one of us to make a vow.
It is one I cannot make.
They are asking that we vow to not complain about the schedule during the 2024 season. Added that we are “adults” and aren’t “afraid of competition.”
I’m sorry. But if we have to play McSmith State four straight times and then hope for two wins over Northwestern, Iowa or Purdue in order to make a bowl game then it is something we have to do.
Until Nebraska starts looking like a competent football team, the only thing I can blame is the schedule.
Will you take a vow with us? pic.twitter.com/PdBeND6ZrS— The Connor Happer Show (@HapperShow) June 8, 2023
Are you taking the vow? Or are you reserving the right to complain about the schedule?
