MIR, your work is greatly appreciated.

I'm in the same boat of being unable to decide if I want Colorado to win by less than 7, or just completely blow Nubs out of the water.

I think the ideal outcome is for Colorado to make a a 2 touchdown 4th quarter comeback and win by 3 with a 50+ yard field goal after a turnover.

I would think a pick by Hunter and then a bomb TD to him

Although a close loss is fun in its own way, Prime beating the crap out of another first-year coach is my preference.  Save the close losses for later in the season.

That would be fun for Colorado fans, but i'm more interested in the Nubb Nation meltdown, ripping their hearts out with needle nose pliers.

Was playing golf at prairie band casino yesterday and there was a group of Nebraska fellows ahead of us. In the clubhouse after the round we were watching them get their teeth kicked in by Colorado and I asked one of them how it feels

Excellent.  I’m still not fully satisfied, however.  I want them to be like Yale football.  So many trophies, from so, so long ago that no one cares.

Let the pain permeate the lives of their children’s children.

I kid obv, but it’s an interesting thought that there really are a lot of NU fans out there these days that never experienced a good Nebraska football team, and many more that never experienced championship level football.

If there was a gif of nicname thwarting the attempted-flag-taker and then gesturing him to suck it, followed by motioning for all of Hilton Shelter to boo him louder, it'd be better than that auburn gif.

With yesterday’s loss to CU, Nebraska football is 0-22 vs ranked opponents since beating a ranked Oregon squad in 2016.

Nebraska fans openly pining to be more like K-State....what a time to be alive.

Quote
We're not talking about winning national championships right now. A season like Kansas State had last year would be incredible, and there's no reason Nebraska can't eventually do something like that, almost every disadvantage we have, K-State has in spades, yet they can make a run every now and then despite whatever talent differential they may have. It's just coaching, plain and simple. Being able to do that every couple years would dramatically elevate our position on the totem pole, probably never to stretches of dominance like we saw in decades past, but simply being relevant on the national stage is not some sort of pie in the sky fantasy./quote]

No matter how much we try to state just how trash they are these days, it never seems like enough. They're just so, so, so very bad.

20 years ago that would've been an unthinkable scenario for them it's insane

what's wild is that the big 10 west is so outrageously trash they've still got a chance to go bowling

It is also insane just how bad that division is. No clue how they are going to do the divisions when Oregon/UCLA/USC/Wash join but them coming into the West none of those other teams (other than maybe, maybe Wisky) will ever see the big 10 champ for a long time.

B10 west is such an oddity. Even moreso than the B12 north became. Every team in the division has a low ceiling, but should also have a high floor.

Amazingly Nebraska has managed to prove everyone wrong and maintain an absurdly low floor for almost a decade now.

BIG is ditching divisions and moving to some sort of protected flex where you play a couple of rivals every year and then cycle through the rest of the conference, 2 best records meet for the championship game.

Honestly think KSU is in a better position to be successful in terms of resources, support and recruiting than Nubb is. Idk why but they still manage to have some pretty good recruiting classes.

Back in the day, Nebraska was one of the few teams on TV every week.  This made it a destination for kids.  Now, you can watch anybody on TV...I can watch Washburn, Emporia St, Fort Hays, Pitt St. every week if I want to?!?   

Nebraska doesn't have an advantage over K-State...Manhattan is a great college town!  Lincoln is a city that is very cool if you are from Nebraska.  The thing that hurts Nebraska University is that it is IN Nebraska.  Same thing that hurts K-State and KU is they are in Kansas. 

It was nice when Nebraska was good.  I just don't think they will ever return back to being great every year for a decade.  They can put a few classes together and make a run to 10 wins and then will be back in the pack hoping to make a bowl.
