The "Nebraska" Way

Just when I thought this couldn’t get any better…wow.

Going through the reader comments this week...all I can say is wow. I haven’t seen you people this pissed off since Little Dale switched numbers. It’s funny to me though, because I don’t think any of you realized what was going within the Big 12 until just about now. Perhaps it was looking at the BCS standings this morning? Perhaps it was listening to any national sports show, as you crumpled up your copy of American Farmer and screamed to yourself, "That should be us!!" Perhaps it was the realization that there are 10 D1 jobs already open out there..and you probably won’t get your hand choice of Urban Meyer, Bob Stoops or Pete Carroll.

Regardless of when you realized that I was right and you were terribly wrong is completely irrelevant at this point. Many of you simply saw my boasting of my favorite team as not only the last straw to lose your mind..but as an opportunity to vent your frustrations that you are pretty much at rock bottom. Despite your not-so-well wishes, I didn't write about Missouri's North title for you. I could give a rat's ass about what you think about it. You're supposed to be pissed. That was simply to inform you that making ridiculous summer claims like, "Sam Keller will show all of you what a gunslinger he really is", wasn't very smart on your part.

So with the Big 12 North in hand and a pending National Championship game, let me save you the heartbreak and inform you that I most likely won’t go on a Mizzou tirade like that for quite some time. (Unless they win it all, in which case I might mention it.) No, I’ve now had my chance to gloat, and it felt good. I've waited a long time for it, and quite frankly, you deserve to be made fun of. Thanks for reading. Thanks for getting pissed. Thanks for reacting. Listening to Steve Ryan of Bigredreport.com on the radio this evening, stammer for words to describe his disbelief and disgust of a Missouri North title was a priceless moment I’ll treasure always.

However, with that ugly episode behind us and because I’m a giver, let’s look at what’s going on with YOU. I’ve said it once..and I’ve said it before…(despite what some of you idiots think) I’m not here to pump my own team. There are plenty of blogs and websites for that, and I really don't care to be one of them. Not because I can't..but simply because I can't piss you off enough with that format. No, I simply wanted you to know that you were wrong..you suck and my team is #1 in the nation. Nothing more or nothing less.

Anyhow, rumors are flying faster than mesh hats off the shelves of a Grand Island Wal-Mart that Bo Pelini is on a plane and heading back to God’s country to restore the order once and for all. I’m going to save my Pelini analysis and breakdowns for when he is actually hired. But in the meantime, I’d like to address a phrase that’s been thrown around like herpes in these parts lately. I’m not quoting directly to one particular idiotic media member..but let me paraphrase…(ahem)

“We need a coach who will do things the NEBRASKA way”

What the hell are you people talking about? Seriously. What does that mean? Does anybody else have an explanation as to what exactly is meant by that phrase?

I like to think I know a little something about you and your team. Despite my white hot-hatred for you and your favorite football program, I do think it’s important to take in as much red as I can stand, so I can rebuke your horrible arguments and lame-ass claims. ("Nebraska's defensive backfield will be solid this year") But in all my years of observing the Husker football program, I’ve never really felt a vibe or actually seen the "Nebraska way” about doing things. (Unless you count the ability to accept domestic abuse as a character trait of players and recruits..in which case I've seen plenty of since 1994)

Does that mean whomever comes in to coach must own at least 5 red solid ties prior to accepting the job? Must he be able to name every offensive coordinator from 2007 back to the early 1950’s? Does a perspective Husker coach have to memorize the name and face of every former Husker, as well as his immediate family? Should he be able to rattle off every mascot of every D2 school in the state at the snap of a finger? Seriously..WHAT DOES THAT MEAN?

You goofy bastards have done some crazy shit in your day, but you’ve completely fallen off the deep end in your quest to become…well become anything to anybody again. What in God’s green earth does “welcoming former players” have to do with winning games? I’m not saying you can be like Pederson and throw up a fortress for some odd reason…but what is the obsession with the past? Why is this so important to you? Do you really think this will help? And it’s not just some of you..it’s ALL of you. I realize it's all you have right now, but is it THAT hard to have a shred of forward thinking stuck inside your head for even a moment?

I’m not a psychological professional, but I do have a degree in detecting desperation. Is it not bad enough that you’ve already dragged Tom Osborne out of retirement and are about to roll his legacy through the sewer, just so you can win 8 games instead of 5 for the next 30 years? Do you know how bad Osborne is at making decisions? Do you know who hired that Solich guy? Do you know who recommended that Pederson guy? Who the hell threw a swing pass on a 2-point conversion with a title on the line when his own team averaged 500 yards rushing per game? Why hasn't this dawned on ANY of you?

And now, on top of all that…you’re about to take a guy with no experience…who is disliked by a good deal of his own fans…and make him your savior again because he wore your red shirt for a year while teams like Texas, K-State and yes…Missouri danced all over his defense in 2003? Am I missing something? Didn’t you already try the whole “no head coaching experience” thing before? Hell, Turner Gill may be rotting away in the Siberia of Lake Erie known as Buffalo, but at least he actually ran a team for two years. (Last I heard, I think they’re even D1).

But regardless, your ultimate emperor Tom is about to take the path of least resistance. In one final act of desperation, as the college football world roars by you…as teams in your own conference are climbing to the top of the BCS ladder…you are about to take a chance on a guy, simply because he was on your payroll for a year.

And to think…I was going to shut this blog down because things were getting too boring.

Just call that press conference Tom..and let the fun begin.

Good column today AJ. I've hated the Bug Eaters since that fucking kicked ball. Its got to kill them to see the Big XII North become relevant again without them.

Nebraska's had this coming for a long time. Even now they say things like "you won't win, you Misery fans haven't been there and don't know how to root for a championship team" as if that matters. Also, as a Rams fan, thanks a lot for Lawrence Phillips you assholes

AJ you prick. You have it pegged perfectly and it pisses me off to tell you your right. For some reason I feel like the lone man crying out that the emperor has no clothes. None of my Husker brethren will listen to me. Syracuse and Minnesota passed on Bo. We are drooling over a Gopher reject. We're better than that.... At least I thought we were.

P.S. Congrats on the win. I hope you fall flat on your face on Saturday. Is there enough left in the tank for another HUGE game? And since when is the number one team in the land a 3 point underdog on a neutral field?

Yeah...I'm a Nebraska fan and I don't really get what the "Nebraska Way" is. I'd much rather just see a team that doesn't look fucking stupid every week. At this point, any coach is going to be able to make the team look better than it does right now.

Congrats on the big win and the #1 status, by the way. I'm jealous.

It is funny how a person like you who thinks he has all the answers really does not get it.

You live in Omaha and spend hours researching a team you claim to hate. I really don't think hate is your motive AJ, I think you really love the Huskers but being raised in Missouri you know that if you came out of the closet your daddy would woop you good.

You are a Husker Stalker AJ! One of those sick people who spend their entire lives fantasizing about something they can never have.

Oh and what you don't get is pride. No Husker fan and for that matter good fans of any other team would spend a lifetime hating another team with lackluster support of the team they say they support.

I just wanted to thank you for providing my favorite site on the web. Missouri is now my second favorite team (after CU) just because of the quality of your blog. I may even get some tickets off of Ebay to root them on in San Antonio. Who do you think all these people are who are unloading Big 12 championship tickets? It couldn't be Husker fans who assumed they would be there, could it?

Thanks again and Good Luck in San Antonio.

Okay I think your all off in the head. What is this mythical Big 12 North Championship. Last I knew there was about 120 D-1 teams the Big 12 North has 6 in them. Boy I would be proud of that stat. Face it the Huskers suck and unless they cheat they can't win. Convicts, apartment building climbers, rapists, murderers, drug dealers, etc. that is how NU wins with convicts. Hell your Heisman Boy Crouch even walked off your pathetic team till you talked his daddy into bringing him back. Missou beat all you Big 12 North pukes fair and square and deserves your respect for spanking all of you. That said why would NU replace a 5-7 coach with a 5-7 coach in Gill or a Bo Pellini who has no experince running a team of losers when LSU is way above the Husker Way of life. Hell he probably isn't even married to his cousin so how would he fit in. Dr. Tom will find you a new coach at the prision and all will be well in the Land of The Sucksters.

There are a lot of Husker fans who enjoy this site..many of whom said very nasty things in this very comments section.

It's funny though that you bring up the "enjoy being relevant for the first time in 40 years" line.

You're doing exactly like I said...judging your entire existance on being relevant in the first place.

I am simply enjoying a special season with fellow fans, who haven't had much success over the years..nothing more.

You yayhoos somehow use that criteria to judge life as a whole...which makes you wrong. And douchebags.

Fans were chanting "We want Bo" for two reasons:

2) You're too stupid to know any better.

If I recall, I remember people..not some people...ALL the people around here fawning over Bill Callahan..praising his every move...warshiping his recruiting skills...now...per you...

He sucks.

Nothing you say means a damn thing anymore. None of it. And quite frankly..it amuses me to no end to watch you throw a hissy fit about a coach you haven't even hired.

Pathetic.

Couple of more things.

1) "You dedicate your life hating the Huskers". Really? how so? Because I write 15 minutes every other day and find pictures to post on a blog that takes about 5 seconds to do? Quite a large brush you got there, don't ya think Picasso?

2) "A lot of people stop by and delete the link". Don't care. Do what you want. I simply report the world how you people act...it's up to you to do what you want with it. Doesn't bother me none.

3) "They are saying Missouri loses to Oklahoma this week because they are pretenders." You know what's funny? If that does happen..and it might...I'll live. It might suck, but all in all I don't have anything to do with it.

You idiots haven't learned a God damn thing I've been preaching to you over the years. (Well, apparently this douche hasn't). It's a great season for Missouri. It's great to be a fan of a team without success, and find yourself rooting for a team with success.

Trust me though...and listen to me long and hard here (Apparently you like homo-erotic analogies..which I guess is pretty typical for a redneck Husker fan)....I GUARANTEE you that you feel worse about your team being bad than I do about mine being good.

It doesn't define me. I'm not smarter because of them. I'm not about to lose any sleep over it either way..it's just a great thing to follow and be a part of. Meanwhile, you're leaving 1300 posts an hour on my blog, telling me how much you hate it.

If you think you're breaking some new ground about how much you can whine and come up with new and exciting analogies for gay sex..then that's cool.

Doesn't bug me at all. You're not showing me anything about typical Husker fans that I didn't already know.

I guess Pinkel must have followed Cally's cue and made a quick stop by Home Depot on the way to Arrowhead, pulled $65 out of his per diem to buy the materials to construct one for Mizzou. ;-)

PPS. Seriously, congrats AJ on the season Mizzou is having. The only fitting end is for them to wrap up the season winning the BCS. I have to admit, they have a sense of destiny about them and if they get by OU, I think they've got a real good shot to win the whole damn thing...Who knows, maybe someone will even end up writing a Tigerh8er blog some day...

AJ, Go play with your kids more. Do you actually think that enjoying this much hate, every day, all year, translates into bettering your life (or worsening the existence of Husker fans)? You must really be a miserable person...."read more, you'll like it, hate me, hate you" I'd like to know what percentage of your life you actually spend thinking about your (possibly supposed) hate for Husker fans and how you can't wait to get it onto your blog, then writing thousands of words on it, checking responses, responding, etc. etc. etc. Really, a percentage. Please tell. Maybe the people in your life care for you as much as you care for yourself, so it really doesn't matter anyway.

Sorry to burst your "Big 12 North Trophy" bubble, but Missouri did not make up a Big 12 North Trophy unlike your team. The MU/KU game has one traditional trophy, the Drum with a Tiger and Jayhawk on opposite sides, (held by T Ruck) and appearantly a new one for the Arrowhead match ups called the Lamar Hunt trophy (former owner of the Chiefs, you may be familiar with him). It goes to the winner of the games at Arrowhead between MU and KU and also has a Tiger and Jayhawk. Neither is a Big 12 North trophy and wouldn't have a Jayhawk on it if it did. Sorry to spoil it for you.

**NOTE ABOUT THE BIG 12 NORTH "TROPHY"**

There IS in fact an award that goes to the Big 12 North champion. However, it's not a trophy, it's a plaque..and it was awarded to Gary Pinkel on his way out of the locker room.

Apparently Steve Pederson made arrangements to have it not only presented after the Colorado game last year, but he also had it placed in a larger, wooden frame.

Reading is fundamental! Where in any of my postings have I defended AJ?
What I have done is:
- acknowledge lines or comments that made me laugh;
- congratulate him and his team for their victories;
- admit that I like his writing and wit, that does not mean agreeing and/or endorsing the content of what he writes;
- chronicled how I became a Husker fan,...like him I was a transplant, but chose to embrace all things Nebraska;
- openly acknowledged that I do not see myself in the characterizations that he presents;
- openly acknowledge - and continue to shake my head in amazement- when you and others re-inforce such characterizations with your comments.
The irony of somebody visiting here multiple times and then blasting him for "wasting time" is hilarious to me as well; ergo I visit for the entertainment value.

Part of Nebraska's secret, the "Nebraska Way" as it has been called, is nothing that out-of-the-ordinary. If you peel all the layers, the Nebraska Way is plain old hard work, perserverence and belief in one another. Sure, it comes in the guise of walk-on programs, academic excellence, loyalty of coaches, physical football and so on - but if you look at it, it's no different than the great dynasties of sports. The 40's and 50's Yankees, 60's Packers and Celtics, 70's Bruins and Steelers, 80's 49ers, 90's Huskers and Bulls and today's Patriots. They flat out work you, out think you, out muscle you and out class you. They all have superstars, but everyone is part of the collective.

"believe it or not..a LOT of people read this blog"

Just curious what you think a "LOT" is. To put whatever your answer is into perspective, the population of this sparsley populated state you hate so much is a meager ~1.7 million.

[Answer: insert your few thousand hits a month here]

That's what I thought. It really isn't a LOT. Don't get me wrong, your blog is fairly entertaining, but partially due to your generalization based on such a small response of people. And yes - there absolutely are a few freaks who fit the mold you put us all into. Then again, I could find a number of fans of any football program and plump them right in the same group.

Even your not-so-loveable Tigers. Boy does it pain me to root for them to win out, but I have to stick with the Big XII North. Fuck Oklahoma.

Gc, thanks for visiting. I like how your statement went from one thing..to another..and then to the realization that Missouri is 11-1.

Again, not that it really defines me either way..I just thought it was funny.

Thanks for stopping by.

PS - A "Lot" is relative. What would you consider a lot? 20,000 a month? 40,000 a month? 60,000 a month? It's in that range, depending on how bad your team screwed up the weekend before usually.

Actually, it really doesn't matter. I make about .0434 cents a month on the thing, and having 60,000 hits per month doesn't win me a trophy.

So I guess you either believe me...or you don't. Don't really care.

60k is way more than I would have thought. Especially if unique. .04*60k is not a bad side job for pissing off people you hate.

The Big XII North Champion trophy is real (I debated, should I act like one of our morons and say something like 'I wouldn't expect you to know that it's real 'cuz you've never been this far before', but in the end, decided against it.... well, shit... now I basically did say it by explaining myself... disregard that).

I was just poking AJ in the ribs a bit because he blasted my Huskers for hoisting it last year.

Enjoy your view from up there and I guarantee that if you are up there for any length of time, pretty soon all you will see when you look down are the arrows everyone else is slinging up at you... but it's worth every damn minute.

Go Big Red.

Randy

Good question.

Corn ridden shit guy has stopped in now and then...but not too much since the beginning of the season.

Too bad too, because that guy was awesome.

Good lord Joseph (or should I say Dark Gable), go back to Big Red Board and continue your circle jerk of Coach Callahan and how fortunate we were to have him for 4 years. I bet AJ visits there weekly to get his source material.

Respectfully go play in the intersection.

ROTFLMAO! You can never win with idiots. I usually don't address trolls, but when one follows you from one site to another, one needs to address the matter.
Yes, I am a member of Big Red Board, a Husker fan site that I believe far surpasses others out there. And yes, my alias/handle there is Dark Gable. Yes, I somewhat frequent this blog that is "a Huskerh8er's view of the world". Not only do you not like the fact that this Husker fan has no problem with this blog, but you also dislike me being a member of the best Husker fan site. Yet somehow you keep coming back here, lacking the courage to even leave a pseudonym; and following me there. LOL! You have issues. Seek professional help and stop stalking me you freak!
BTW, Go Big Red!

Irreverently,
Joseph or Dark Gable, take your pick.

Joe my man..any time a guy breaks out the Revenge of the Nerds references...you're fighting with one hand behind your back.

If he breaks out something from One Crazy Summer, I'm going to piss myself.

AJ,
What happened to your Tigers tonight ? Welcome to the big time, when you have to win when it counts. Missouri was #1 for one week, long enough to last for the next 40+ years. You can now turn your attention back to Husker-hating now that Missouri will be playing in the Cotton Bowl.

this is pure genius. i grew up in the godforsaken state of nebraska. my parents are huge fans of a rival Big XII team and influenced me to follow their path -- which made for a lousy childhood as i was often heckled by fifth grade husker pricks and subjected to "big red" friday when everyone had to wear lame ass red.

what a great season. i haven't lived in nebraska for some time now, but given the pathetic performance over the past few years, i'm guessing that dumb ass NBC sportscaster stopped clutching that dried up ear of corn for good luck? loser.

i love bill callahan. i love that the husker fans had so much faith in him, i love that they extended his contract just this season, i love that he literally stole millions from them, i love that he wiped nebraska football from the national spotlight--except for the few times when espn sportscenter giggled at them in an effort to fill up some air time before commercial.

I LOVE CALLAHAN!! he brought so much happiness and pure joy to husker haters everywhere! revenge is sweet.

good luck with your picked over head coach and senial AD.
