Dallas, We Have a Problem.

I don't know about you...but I'm pretty much holidayed out. I hope your Christmas season was spent with your friends or families, exchanging yellow foam cornheads, bib overalls, limited edition oil paintings of Bob Devaney or whatever it is you freaks give each other. No matter what you did, I hope it was a happy and safe time for all involved.

I'm glad you're back though, because we have something that needs to be addressed. It seems the somebody forgot to inform the greatest fans in college football that they were playing in their first January bowl game in years.

Are you people surprised like this? Apparently some of you haven't visited the Devaney Center during a basketball game, and taken a look around at the 10,000 or so invisible fans or so who decided to take in an early season game against Alabama A&M. Hypocritical tendencies not withstanding, leave it to the Omaha Propaganda machine to kick into full gear as soon as it became apparent that the Red Hillbilly nation wasn't going to be swarming to Dallas in waves.

My personal favorite excuse was given by the Omaha World Herald on December 26th, in which it went through the various reasons experts describe the historical Cotton Bowl as a "dump". (Uhhhh...this just in....you don't exactly play in the Taj Majal there Gomer. Just because you throw up a 900 foot tall video board doesn't make you cutting edge.) Other excuses in regards to the Dallas landmark were the tight concourses, poor legroom and my personal favorite..."Fans attending next week's Cotton Bowl will be disappointed to learn that no creature-comfort improvements will begin until spring 2007."

In other words, "They're going to clean up this shithole...but not until after Husker fans are long gone.

But it doesn't stop with the World Herald. Local call-in shows berate the "crappy bowl" and "horrible start time" as reasons not to go. The most common theme is the weather that is described as everything from "bone-numbing cold" to "unpredictable." The remainder of the excuses include spending too much money in KC for the Big 12 title game to lack of respect for "mid level" SEC teams.

Don't think for one second I'm going to let you a-holes slide on this one.

HOW OFTEN do we hear how Husker fan sets the bar on what a college football fan should do? How often do we have to hear how you travel to the moon to watch your favorite team? So you're playing a top flight SEC team in a major metro city less than a day's DRIVE away....and now you're too good to show up? Didn't 280,000 of you hayseeds show up in San Antonio last year when all you had done was beat a Colorado team on the brink of collapse? Didn't we hear about how great you were back then? Aren't you the same people who bring up your locust-like swarming of South Bend in 2000 during every other conversation?

So seriously..what the hell is the deal? Since when has the weather stopped you freaks? Do you REALLY think Dallas is that cold in the winter? (Forcast is sunny and 55 at gametime. downright arctic conditions if I've ever heard them...)Are you really that concerned with a 10:30am start time? Do you honestly want the rest of us to believe that your entire soybean harvest cash for 2006 was spent in Los Angeles for the USC game? What, did you not think you were going to a bowl?

Why don't we just cut through the bullshit and call this whole thing what it is. I know what is it. You know what it is. Let's just get it out there:

You think you're above this game.

Your mediocre 5-0 record vs. the shitty Big 12 North convinced you that it was 1995 all over again. You had visions of National Championships...with Tommie Frazier running down the sidelines. You envisioned Zac Taylor ending his brief Nebraska career on the shoulders of his teammates in Tempe, as a spirited Boise State team stood in awe of his accomplishment. The fact that the excuses are flying faster than the speed of light is indicative of everything I've ever said about you people.

You're no better than anybody else. Hell, Kansas State fans...the same people you mock for having a high school stadium and a 3rd rate program is sending the entire population of Kansas to Houston tonight for the Texas Bowl....a city that is about 6 hours further of a drive than Dallas. (Against RUTGERS....RUTGERS for God's sake) Sure, you ended your season on a down note against Oklahoma...but didn't they just get rolled by a shitty KU team? And you folks have the audacity to mock them and their fans?

You hypocrites.

If you would just go about and say "we're better this", I would have so much more respect for you. Yet, you instead sit back, offer excuse after excuse and still predict victory anyway. To me, I find it hysterical that a team that lost to Oklahoma State by double digits and finished with 4 losses can think they're above any bowl this side of Shreveport. Where the hell do you people get off? Seriously. It's the fucking Cotton Bowl. It's been played every year since 1937...ironically about the same year most of your season ticket holders attended their first Nebraska football game. If anybody should recognize what a good bowl game this is, it should be you people.

So go ahead....bitch about the weather. Complain about Auburn. You're the ones who have to live with yourselves every single time you pat yourself on the back to reconfirm what a great great fan you are.

The rest of us know better.

Enjoy watching the game in your living room. It's supposed to be cold out this weekend.

Kansas State fans are going to Houston so they can see the game. 80% of the freakin' country has no NFL network. What a joke. I can't stand the Mildcats, but I would love to see the game. Freeman's fun to watch.

Nebraska fans aren't going in droves because of the shitty time slot. Who wants to road trip to a breakfast game?

Looks like AJ, the constant bitcher about anything Cornhusker or for that matter anything Nebraska, spent his "entire" Christmas weekend thinking about what he is going to complain about next. I really hope you spent a few moments living the reason for the season.

I can't believe the length of your last Blog.

Bitch, bitch, bitch, bitch, bitch, bitch...........that is all you do.

Have a happy new year asshole! I hope the Huskers kick some Tiger tail in a few days so you have something to "bitch" about for another few months. Then I will beable to bust a gut laughing at you. I really enjoy it!

Sincerely

GBR

I can always tell when I've made a good point, because that's when the faceless come out to say things like, "You wasted your whole Christmas thinking about us" blah blah blah.

Good one douchebag.

As for the other guy who is going to the game...you sir at least have a shred of my respect.

The 10:40 am kickoff is the lamest excuse I've ever heard for not going to a football game. It's less than a half-hour earlier than the Texas game, and 85,000 showed up for that.

OHF, go fuck yourself. Just saying. Asshole.

;)

Great game to watch. I thought Mizzou's offense was as sharp as it's ever been. Pinkel took chances and rolled dice, even when he got screwed. (onside kick)

If Tony Temple plays 1/2 the way he did today next season, Mizzou is going to be very dangerous. Oh, and 10 guys on that offense come back next season.

As for defense...Oregon state is a damn good team. Should have had them stopped several times...but that's the way it goes. Just goes to show you can't play soft, even when you've got things in hand.

I'm pretty happy with everything but the overall defense and the final score.

Did I mention go fuck yourself sideways with a Louisville fucking slugger?

Houston!.........I mean Tiger Land, we have a problem. Our team sucks! Send us a solution fast before AJ blows a gasket.

Huh?

What problem? 600 yards of offense and 10 returning starters. Did I mention the Hicks come to Columbia next season?

No gasket needed....great game where the better team won. Sorry that's difficult for you to understand.

Thanks for your concern though.

AJ:

An actual sane comment from a Tiger fan about yesterday's game. I don't understand how losing by one point, even with a 14 point lead late, when the other team made plays sends us Tigerfans into meltdown. Yes we know coaching is not a strength, but not every loss is due to incompetence, like some would believe.

War Eagle.

what's your reason for the low turnout, Husker Mike?

everyone still pining for Solich?

just you, loser!

JP,

I would say the low Husker turnout was because a lot of people didn't want to travel all that distance to see a retard like Callahan call a piss poor game.

"Hey let's throw the ball on 3rd & 1, and 3rd & 2 and stop these offensive drives where we can control the ball and burn the clock." said Calahan, and he added, "Hopefully we can set Auburn up in a short field situation so they can stay in the game and not have to commit to throwing the ball every down, because you know, I'm the smartest man in the world, if you don't think so, just ask Steve Pedersen."

Let the Rivals retards start to tell us how the 4-5 star recruits will cure a poorly called game.
