I know this will not please my good friend Evan, so my apologies in advance. But something just occurred to me that I want to share. A lot of you will remember our series with Nebraska in the 60s, 70s, and 80s. We could not beat them. On those rare occasions when we almost beat them, something would happen to prevent it. Our coach would foul up or the refs would forget their impartiality just enough. Nebraska was a force of nature.
Now, with our favorite son head coach self-satisfied with the program he built (with a lot of help from Boone’s millions), and his coaching accomplishments in decline, we are justifiably saddened. But as of now, I allow myself one secret thought, “At least we’re not Nebraska!”
