Sir, I owe you an apology about NU being bad because of our small population. The more I thought about it, I realize South Dakota State has a better football program than Nebraska and they truly have a population challenge. In fact, NDSU beat Iowa and NU got manhandled by Iowa.
I continue to be amused by the silliness of the commentary in this thread.
Nebraska lost to a better coached, better prepared Iowa team on Friday. No excuses..
But to suggest NU walk the plank and "get out" of the Big 10 or that SDS has a better football program than NU because they beat Iowa in September is just abject foolishness..
If you dislike Nebraska football, that's fine.. but to make statements that are just plain silly..well, to me, you lose complete credibility..
The reality is, the Huskers went 9-3 in 2016, got homered at Wisconsin and embarrassed at Ohio St and Iowa.. But it's now on to a bowl game and I can think of at least 50+ college football programs who would love to be in the same position as Nebraska..
Remember- last year, NU went 5-7. This year, 9-3. There is much work to do, but that is a marked improvement..
Get a reality grip...
