The push for these big TV contracts that create national viewerships for college footall has killed schools like Nebraska. Kids in that part of the country no longer grow up exposed only to Husker football. That, and populations shifting away from the part of the country, is why schools like Nebraska will struggle to regain their former prominence.

I actually feel bad for Nebraska. They were a school I loved to hate but now it's like picking on the smallest kid in class.
Is it baseball season yet?

Ditto

But I can manage to root against them after 94. The Osborne sympathy vote and the B10 not supporting PSU. Nope not over it.

That’s exactly what comes to mind every time Nabraska is mentioned. Hold on to that grudge, underlion, I know I am!

When people ask me when Penn State's last national championship was I say, without hesitation, 1994.

But, yes, I understand the bitterness over the Osborne sympathy vote.

Pitt got rolled again by UCF. I hope Narduzzi's keychain keeps him warm at night. I freaking LOVE seeing that a-hole get beat. I really wouldn't care at all about Pitt except he is just such a dick. They were supposed to be decent this year with a lot of seniors. It isn't happening and I'm wondering if he'll even be there for next year's game.

Is anyone watching Minn at OSU? The Golden Gophers are hanging tough early in the 2nd. OSU got a gift spot on 4th down and the next play went for 6. But, so far at least, Minny is hanging tough and just took the lead.

Just watched Quinn Nordin shank a chip shot FG against sparty. Why am I smiling?
Yeah, well, that's like your opinion, man.

That game actually burns me. PSU should have smoked Sparty, but literally pissed the game away. :x

well - I did not see the game - but am curious how a team "literally" pisses a game away. That's a highlight I might be happy to miss. Perhaps they figuratively pissed the game away - I'm hoping.
