Post-Thanksgiving Husker Thoughts

Nebraska CornhuskersI’m sitting here watching Nebraska play their last day-after-Thanksgiving game as a member of the Big 12 conference. I don’t know if bittersweet is the right word, but it’s…something. I was actually a pretty big Husker fan in high school. I even had one of my senior pics taken in a Tommie Frazier jersey. (I’ll spare you the actual pic. For some reason I thought white socks looked good with soccer sandals. Geez, the fashion of late 90s Iowa!)

How will the Huskers football team fare in the Big Ten? That’s probably the biggest question here in west central Iowa. Most of my buddies lean towards Iowa City, but a few even lean towards Ames, while fewer still lean towards Lincoln. The general consensus, bias considered, is Nebraska will be a middle-of-the-conference team. Hawk fans don’t think they can beat the Hawks. Cyclone fans are glad to get rid of them. Husker fans don’t care because they’re Husker fans and Nebraska football is all there is…the opponent doesn’t matter.
