Sal is dead,
Go Big Red
I remember when that happened. I was a senior in high school. I'm hoping that Darwinism took that stupid SOB (the "fan" that wrote that) off of the earth.... if not I hope he no longer cheers for NU.
I understand where Saulbadguy is coming from actually... I never saw it when I was younger because Nebraska was winning all the time, but since they have dropped from the upper echelon of college football you see all kinds of OU, Texas and even KSU hats, flags, bumperstickers all over Nebraska. It shows me who the real fans are and who were just bandwagoners. I can only imagine that you have a lot of that left over from NUs glory days in KSU country Saul.... it is kind of like the Husker fans that root for KU in basketball around here (not calling anyone out personally....)
As for me, I like a little adversity with my teams. I guess growing up a Bronco and Red Sox fan (and NU before they won thier first title of my lifetime) does that to you.
