Johnny, you're as predictable as a Wisconsin RB running for 300+ yards against the Huskers by going right to the tired, old "you're just a bad fan" trope.  Surprised you didn't call me a Nazi racist, too, as many intellectually lazy folks do these days when they can't argue the merits of their position.

 

I notice, that you don't present an argument against my actual point -- that Nebraska football has been average to shitty for about 18 years now.  And that despite the comings and goings of coaches, assistants, ADs, and players, nothing has ever really changed.  There's been no discernible improvement toward becoming a well-coached, disciplined football team that plays hard each play and can be a Top 10 team, consistently.

 

Those are facts my friend. 

 

But continue calling me a bad fan if it eases your pain.  Eventually, you'll get to the same numb place that I am, where you just don't give a shit anymore.

 

 

 

 

 

Some Husker Fans = Spoiled Rotten Brats


I remember being concerned eight years ago that we could easily lose a generation of fans as it had been twelve years since NU had won anything of significance. It has now been twenty years and a full generation has passed. That’s a lot of patience even for those like yourself that watched NU during the Roosevelt administration.

 

 

Meh.  We live in a microwave society.  People get pissed if they wait in a drive-thru more than two minutes.  I'm not pulling the old trite comparison of "Osborne didn't win a national championship for 17 tears" or even the comparison of Dabo at Clemson or Saban at Alabama or even Michigan State, but jeebus christo, a season and a half in and whiny little bitches are calling for frosty blood and being dicks to players. 

 

FDR would've lost WWII with this line of thought.  And you'd have been more accurate in your historical reference by going further back in time, as Rome wasn't built in a day.

 

football the last 10 years for me has become about tailgating with good friends, except Johnny, because Johnny hasn't ever stopped by.

 

JH, you ever get an invite to any of these tailgates? Yeah, me neither.  :ninja:

I'll be hosting redout parties at the Harrahs sports book in Council bluffs on thursday, I'm just going to start putting 2 grand on each opponent and if I don't win this week I'll just double it next week, eventually I'll have a huge pay day.
