Fun idea from another board
The guys over at another board have come up with an idea of monumental proportions (obviously kicked off by McKeon's suggestion that the students wear black shirts) and could be something that would give Memorial Stadium an even more intimidating presence.
Husker77 who used to post here sent an email to Channel 7 (theomahachannel.com) asking for help implementing the idea that black towels be waved by fans at the game in support of the blackshirts. The sports director emailed back stating that it was an interesting idea that he was going to run by the powers-that-be.
Regardless of their action on this, we need to get this idea going. Being a huge Steeler fan, I can vouch for towel waving. The Terrible Towel is famous! Let's make the Blackshirt Towel as famous in college football. This is a grassroots effort that has to start somewhere. Let's help the guys over at BRB kick this thing off....and lets try to get it started at the ISU game.
This defense has seemingly improved incredibly over the past year. The blackshirts name is something known all over the country. Nebraska's tradition of excellence has been build upon a foundation of defensive excellence. How amazing would be be to see 77,000 fans waving black towels and screaming like maniacs whenever the blackshirts take the field.
If you agree, bring a black towel to the game next Saturday. Tell your friends, family, etc., to do the same.
Let's to start a tradition that could be massive!
We all know and love the RED OUT....let's kick off the BLACK OUT!
I don't know how well this is going over but it sounds like a cool thing.
