The End

Well, now that the season is over…it looks like we’re finally here.

First of all, I’d like to apologize up front for making this kinda long. You don’t end a 23 year long crusade and cap it off with a one paragraph long, “Thanks…see you guys later.” No, we have some loose ends we need to tie up before I go, and as you can probably imagine…it might take a while.

Anyhow, let me start off by saying thanks. Thanks for turning a 10 minutes a week hobby into…well, a 30 minute a week hobby. But along the way, without any regrets, I did exactly what I set out to do. This blog wasn’t designed to show you how much better my team was than yours. (Although they are) It wasn’t written to mock your thug athletes, who turned criminal trial watching into a state’s 2nd favorite spectator sport. Nor was this blog really started to break down the daily happenings within one of college football’s most famous programs.

My goal was simply to expose you to the rest of the world.

When I started back in early 2005, Nebraska football was still known…I guess… as somewhat as a national power. Sure they were going through some growing pains with Bill Callahan…but just 3 seasons prior, the team played for a National title for God’s sake. (One that you never deserved to even play for..as we’ve discussed here many times.) Oh sure, you were openly mocked for being destroyed in the 2002 Rose Bowl game. And yes, the public ridiculed you endlessly from afar during your disastrous hiring of Bill Callahan just the year before. But even then…nobody REALLY knew you.

Today…some four years and over 620 posts later, the world finally seems to have seen the light. Fans of every single Big 12 North team have stopped by this corner of the web…oftentimes sending me thanks for saying exactly what they felt...usually after encountering some idiot Husker transplant at work, or that brother-in-law who won't shut the hell up about Grant Wistrom. Yes, fans from across the country were finally privy to your mind-numbing stories, farked photos and media articles that for decades lay far behind a tightly closed iron curtain. Don't believe me? Do you think it’s just a coincidence that 2008's "return" to glory team was somehow left out of the top 25? Think voters are still falling for your “look at us, we used to be great..but now we’re back” crap again?

Yes, my goal was to reveal you and your massive ego to the world, by letting them see just what a complete and absolute freak show you people run out here on the great plains…all by yourself…where nobody from the outside world dares to tread for more than a weekend.

We’ve also talked a lot about the Nebraska media, who have made this blog literally write itself. Special thanks to Kevin Kuglar and Mike’L Severe of KOZN radio in Omaha for not only calling me out on air (multiple times), but for oftentimes have the actual balls to banter with me back and forth via e-mail, somehow justifying their foolhardy and oftentimes moronic opinions. Special thanks to Traitor Tom Shatel, columnist for the Omaha World Herald…who to this day stands as probably the easiest target of all. In all my years of fighting this fight, NOBODY represents the supercilious nature of Husker fan better than he does. Wishy-washy to the core…completely blinded by urge to please you, Tom has made a living of being your ultimate piss boy. Thank you Tom for the all the years of ammunition. It has not gone unappreciated.

Yes, during our time together, we’ve been through many adventures that I will look back fondly on. The Huskers have lost 20 games since I started this blog...more than an entire era that spanned from 1985 to 1998. And man did we have some fun.

Who could forget the rise and fall of J.C. Keller? Looking back at the top 10 Husker losses of all time? The 76 points to Kansas? 52-17? 41-6? The back-to-back colon-pulsing ass poundings by USC? Perhaps you enjoyed the near losses to Maine…The police incidents, the outlandish predictions, the blowout losses, the spitting thug and the return of Tom Osborne? Or perhaps you enjoyed..as I did…when various factions of my own Husker-loving readers who turned against each other in their time of deep despair; so much so they arranged to fight each other at halftime of an actual game? Harrison Beck, Jay Norvell, Dudley Blake, Marlon Lucky and his invisible Heisman, fake tattoos, the Blaine Gabbert saga and all the borderline disturbing events that have shaped you as a fan base over the past few years. I will miss them all. And I will most miss sharing them all with you, if anything to hear your ridiculous spin job that often followed.

But alas, nothing lasts forever and this is a prime example. Although it still exists…evil as it once was has been defeated…my soul has been cleansed, and an entire generation of football fans now have had a first-hand look at what complete and total idiot hayseeds you are. Some say I single-handedly stoked the fires of a new rivalry between bordering states. Perhaps I did have something to do with it? Perhaps I’m the sole reason you hate every single car that drives by your tractor with Missouri license plates? The truth lies in within your own soul…what that is..I really don’t know. What I do know is…NOTHING about you really bothers me that much anymore. Your claims…your stories…your predictions…your flashbacks. It’s all bullshit, because you’ve been proven wrong time and time and time and time again…by me, the one person who knows you best.

Before I do go on though…I do want to thank a few more people who helped make this blog what it is and what it was:

Thanks to Greg, Barney, Brown Thunder and Ryan for creating this monster many years ago. Thanks to Husker Mike, Jon at Corn Nation and some of the other fairly-reasonable Husker bloggers I’ve bumped into over the years. Thanks to Gabe at PowerMizzou, the guys over at Rock M Nation and of course Nick and the freaks over at Tigerboard. Thanks to the Colorado and K-State fans who helped make this blog grow. Thanks to Justin in Reno for all his help with the web design, as well as the anonymous Mizzou student who supplied me with the alternate URL. Thanks to MCPeiper for the game tickets. Thanks to the OPD and Qwest Center security for not catching me when I snuck into the NCAA tourney. Thanks to Maple Street Publishing, CNNSI.com and Tim Griffin at ESPN.com for featuring my work. Thanks to the listeners of Unsportsmanlike Conduct for being obsessed with my every move. Thanks to all my family and friends…almost all who never found out that I have actually written such hateful and vile words over the years.

But most of all…thank you Husker fans.

Relentlessly, time and time again you hillbilly inbred hayseed fuckheads have provided me with entertainment beyond my wildest dreams. You’ve tried to bring up my own team’s failures…while justifying your own misfortunes and mistakes. You’ve tried to tell me how much you hate me…while at the same time never turning to run away from me. You’ve tried over and over and over and over to get me to play your little game, but never got me to crack. My only regret is that I didn’t find a penny for every time one of you clowns left me your best Jim Rome impression, promising you’d never return; and then sneak a peek some 500 times in the following 3 hours.

What you never realized is…I allowed you to comment on my work so freely simply because you did what I never could…and that is fully demonstrate what a whack-job bunch of red-sweater wearing psychopaths you dipshits truly are. Sure, I can tell people from other parts of the country that you send pictures of shirtless wide-receivers to your friends…but then you would just log in and try and defend it.

“Yeah, but you’re scared to death…look them…they’re RIPPED!”

You never got it.

You never EVER understood that the more you fought back, the more idiotic you appeared to those whom I truly wrote this blog for. I addressed you Husker fans directly in every column, even though you were never my intended reader. The real goal was to find that sheltered person who stumbled across the blog on Google or whatever…curiously wondering why or HOW anyone could POSSIBLY hate such a classy and distinguished fan base like Nebraska. While never writing a word directly to that person…I wanted them to fully understand, that what you see on television, lost in a visually impressive sea of red…is certainly not what you get. These people are insane. These people are delusional. These people love themselves more than you could ever love another object.

But now it’s over. The mediocrity once despised is now covering you like a warm blanket. You embrace it. You celebrate it. You are oblivious to it. While trying to take a step forward…you let your leaders take you 20 steps back, and that is your own fault due to your own actions in the past. Karma kicked you square in the teeth, and you Gomers are just too far gone to see it. This is why I have yet to follow your instructions and “Just leave if you hate it here so much”.

I was having too much fun…not laughing with you..but at you.

So with that…in the spirit of you being a complete and total shell of your former selves…let me leave you with a final thought:

I found I was pretty good at writing this blog, not because I have any talent or any real insight. No, I think hundreds of thousands of hits found this website because I knew you like nobody else did…and yet thrived under your resistance. I always wrote this blog knowing that even the slightest misstep in facts, and my credibility would be shot…the message I delivered forever ruined in the transmission, no matter how true it was. But deny to yourself if you may…I stood toe to toe with you regarding the Huskers, because I know your team every bit as well as you do. I see the program with my eyes..while you feel it with your heart; and that is dangerous.

For you see…some of you asked long ago, but the answer was never found: I know so much about you, because I am one of you. Not by residence, but by blood. Yes, in my final plot twist to you…I will finally let you in on a little secret I successfully worked very hard to hide:

I attended to the University of Nebraska.

I stand as a symbol for all to see…for what you believe in and how you go about your daily lives…will someday consume you. I am your worst enemy…your harshest critic…and will hate all of you until the day they put me into the ground. I am what happens when one of you finally sees the light. I am one of you in more ways than you ever knew.

For those of you who have been here for a while…friend or foe…thanks for taking this ride with me. For all the smack talk, foul language and snotty remarks, I really did enjoy writing this blog for so long, despite your endless stupidity. But like all crusades, this one must end as victory is in hand. Your mystique is gone. Your aura of ultimate class and respect is long since shattered. Your history…the one thing you have clutched onto for so long..is now all you have as it gently drifts farther and farther away in the rearview mirror.

I documented your ugly death for all the world to see. I am victorious in my intentions. I am triumphant in doing exactly what I set out to do in February of 2005. The fight is over now.

I won.

I've won because nobody gives a damn about truly shitty teams. And with that...my work here is done.

This is A.J. reporting live from behind enemy lines.

Signing off.

Bottom line...the big red is fucking dead and this is the appropriate time to end it.

Well done sir.

Oh, and I had already graduated from somewhere else the year before I attended Nebraska. I didn't stay there because of...well...what you see in this blog. (And yes, I finished somewhere else...actually out of state for a couple years)

PS - Gary, thanks

PPS - Compare Tebow to Daniel? Why? Did I mention Daniel? All I know is, Chase Daniel broke every Missouri passing record, and beat the holy fuck out of Nebraska 3 times..including once by 5 TD's in Lincoln.

I'd like to know why you would be LYFAO over that? Perhaps we can compare Tebow to Jamal Lord?!?

Great blog, A.J. I'll miss it a lot. Being a Nebraska native who escaped the Great Plains a few years ago, I thought you were spot-on in your analysis of the typical Husker fan. You aren't exaggerating or off-base in your take. In the land of corn, where there is little else to do, football is king and the fans honestly believe themselves to be the best in the country, arrogance and modesty be damned.

Some other topics I enjoyed reading your takes on include Creighton basketball (I hate that school and their fans with a passion that likely equals yours of Husker football), Tom Osborne (I've never understood the fascination people have with a bland football coach), NCAA and their relationship with Omaha (where Omaha is their little b**ch and does whatever the NCAA wants them to do) and Tom Shatel (by far the biggest homer of a sports columnist I've ever read)

One question I have, and it might be too personal: what brought you to NU?

Thanks again!

You will be missed.

Bob, thanks for the remarks. To answer your question, I went to NU after my undergrad to go to journalism school. (One I could afford.) I went there for a year...was prepared to go back...but then got a job in pro baseball. I never went back. Oh, and that was 1995 too...so there might have been a bit of football hysteria going on there at the time.

Tick, thanks for your words as well. I always appreciate it when Husker fans actually do see the blog for what it was meant to be.

I just started reading the blog this year. Great, great stuff.

Since it's over, and since I started late, what was the deal with the "unsportsmanlike conduct twins, Kugler and S'vere?

Those two idiots actually attempted to argue with AJ? I thought they were smarter than that! Makes this all even funnier.

I would have liked to have seen a look at Turner Gill's possible future. The only reason I say this is because the Husker lover in the building suggested, after this season, that Turner Gill ought to "go after that Army job...it would be a nice fit". My guess is that he said that because he DOESN'T want to see Turner Gill ever have a chance to actually win a national championship at a real football school, like Auburn, Boston College, or even Syracuse. I have no idea if Turner Gill can get it done and move up the ladder. What's interesting is that he arguably might have a better chance to coach in a BCS championship game if HE IS NOT AT NEBRASKA, because they will never get to that level again. This will drive Husker fans to even nuttier levels. It would kill them, insecure hicks!

AJ, thanks for all the fun.

Keep up the good work and I hope I'll get the chance to enjoy your writing somewhere else.

A.J.,

Could not read this final entry and not thank you.

Found your blog about a year ago and have been an addict ever since.

You understanding of the fusker pathology has been spot on. Your writing gift has crystalized what so many of us have known but have been unable to express.

This writing nailed them to the wall but also exposed them to the rest of world for the frauds that they are.

Your virtual unlimited posting of all fusker messages was also wise. They exposed themselves in a way that exceedd any huskerh8er's wildest dreams.

Even now, even at the end, most of them do not understand. You expose their folly and they come back at you with, "Your team is going to suck next year!" smack.

Because of course, if they beat Mizzou next year, then they are no longer assholes.

On a final note to all who have been reading this blog.

Trivia questiion: Which asshole fanbase is the only one to have their tires slashed in an opposing team's home town?

You got it folks, the fuksers. The biggest bunch of pricks ever to visit an opposing teams home stadium.

I figured I'd better get one last post in before I go looking for another blog to read.

First, this may be the biggest fucking circle jerk I've ever seen. I know all you fucking CU and Mizou fans hate us, but c'mon.

I like the guy who thinks it funny you were wandering around UNL's campus, laughing inside after each of our losses, in 19-fucking-95. wow, that must have been gratifying to walk around the campus and laugh after all of those losses that year.

The Turner Gill comment is retarded as well. Like most people on this blog, they probably had one bad experience or heard one crazy story from a husker fan(thinking turner should take the army job), and they jumped on the husker hater bandwagon. I'm not surprised, considering most of you are bandwagon fans to begin with. I seen K-state's student section half-empty BEFORE kickoff this year, seen Mizzou's pathetic showing at arrowhead, and routinely see CU fail to sellout their mammouth stadium.

Fact is, Husker fans would love to see Turner go anywhere and succeed.

The best thing this blog ever did was bring all of the dilusional party's together and let them speak. The funniest fucking shit on this blog are the profanity-laced, single paragraph posts, that make absolutley no sense. You can't buy that kind of entertainment.

Did I mention this post was a

Hopefully AJ's leaving his blog to go into the stock market. He's bailing on the blog when the stock is the highest.

Husker Nation was at it's lowest point when he started the blog in 2005...coming off the train wreck of a 5-6 season. Just like "fans" come out of the woodwork when a team does well..."haters" come out of the woodwork when their most despised opponent does poorly.

If anything, AJ, you understand timing; however, the tenure of your blog makes you as big a bandwagoner as the Husker fans that grasp onto the glory days of the 90s.

Now - you recognize the momentum of the Nebraska program with a young coach at the helm - and realize that there is limited upside with significant downside.

Call it what you want, but the end of your blog is as big a signal that the Huskers are back, than anything that any Husker Fan can claim about their beloved team.

The joke's on you, my friend. Good luck with Maple Publishing.

The ignorance of KU fan never ceases to amaze me. Along with their sense of entitlement which I've never quite understood. Can some rational KU fan please explain to me after the 2 seasons you've had why you should get so much respect? Facts would be appreciated here.

It's all coming together now. I've seen this profile in disturbed individuals many times in my profession. Basically what happened is this...

AJ graduates from East Central Northwest Missouri community college with a 2-year degree in Being an Asshat. He yearns to attend a real school and get out of his parents' basement and begins to attend the University of Nebraska.

Excited about joining a fraternity and becoming popular for the first time in his life, AJ rushes as many fraternities as he can. The frats notice that AJ is as desperate as a hamster in a room full of homosexuals armed with pvc pipe and duct tape that they soundly reject him.

AJ flunks out of the University of Nebraska after becoming severely depressed. AJ then vows revenge on all his former classmates (and the university) for not accepting him.

Gotcha. Classic profile.

This is like when you found out that Santa Claus went to Nebraska? C'mon man, of course Santa is a Husker... fat dude in red? Hello..

AJ,

Even as a Husker fan, I can appreciate what you've done here and I'll miss coming around to see the next car wreck that is the comments section.

Sorry I didn't come through with any death threats or wild predictions of championship seasons.

I was watching Jeopardy yesterday and one of the contestants gave a fun story about his great-grandfather letting Frank James into the house when he needed shelter.

He said it was back in the day when people would let others in if they needed help.

I said to myself..."Yeah! People! Not murdering pieces of slaver crap!"

So! Mom finally took your computer away. Perfect time for you to get out now that Tiger football is on the decline. I didn't figure you'd have the stomach. Oh well, I'll only miss you when the Huskers pound Mizzou this fall. In all honesty I've gotten some enjoyment out of this blog. You're a pretty good writer for a high school kid! Now go pop those pimples and wash up for dinner! And don't forget to listen to what your Mother says.....leave those Husker fans alone....they'll kick your ass if they find out who you are!

Best!

Thanks A.J. I'll miss reading your masterpieces each week. I don't hate the Huskers like you do, but it was still some fun reading all these years, even when you trashed my beloved Sooners. All in fun.

The Huskers will soon rule the North again. We all know it and somehow I think that has something to do with the end of this blog.

Best of luck to you in your new hobby, whatever that may be.

You "attended to the University of Nebraska"? Why? Did it hurt itself? Clearly you aren't an English major. As for those of us who weren't fans and were enlightened by your "pearls of wisdom"---bad news. For some of us, you accomplished the opposite of what you think. We saw a petty little Mizzou fan ranting like a spoiled child. And WE were laughing at YOU!!! Go Huskers!

"Why? Did it hurt itself? Clearly you aren't an English major."

You realize you bashed me on proper English, and yet fucked this sentence up right? I mean come on...people bash on me all the time..and I'm cool with it. But if you're going to bash on my use of the English language, the least you can do is wait more than 1 sentence to fuck it all up.

Oh and MHF, nice to see you back. Funny you haven't been around much in recent months. Not sure why. "They'll kick your ass if they find out who you are". Why? Because if they freak out over words it will prove my point that you people are beyond help and take yourselves more seriously than any fan base on earth?

I'm retired now, and I can still counter punch you two fuckin clowns with my eyes closed.

AJ - I’ve heard about this blog for a couple of years now. I’ve refrained from visiting simply because I don’t care what anyone from Missouri thinks of Nebraska. But, as the season is over and winter has set in, boredom has got the best of me.

Although I don’t agree with most of what you say, you do have some good points. At least you know your statistics and history, more than I can say about most bloggers.
I’ve read a lot of your blog. It occurred to me you don’t like people from Nebraska. That’s too bad. It must suck going through life hating something so much. It also occurred to me that you never really improved your skills from your first year to your fourth. It seems as though there was some sort of vacancy in the fresh thoughts category. Just an observation.

Since this is a free country and people can say what they want, I offer my congratulations. You’ve proved you have an opinion – just like everyone else. But since this is my time, and my opinion, I will concentrate on a few of my observations.

I noticed you spent a lot of time patting yourself on the back for waking the “world” up to the fact that Nebraska people are hayseeds and hicks. Do you truly believe that they didn’t understand that in the first place? I did not grow up on a farm. I could not milk a cow if my life depended on it. In general, though, I’m a hick because I grew up in Nebraska. As a matter of fact, so are you. You are from Missouri. “The Show Me State” does not refer to “show me your Mercedes”, or “show me your penthouse on Fifth Avenue”, or for that matter “show me your education”. Sorry, you are a hayseed to.

Envision this: you are from California; you read a blog from a Missouri football fan calling Nebraska people hayseeds and hicks. You then spend the next ten minutes laughing and rolling around on the floor. Your dog gets excited, grabs his chew toy and joins you.

Talk about irony.

As for Nebraska football, well, you’re not from there. You will never understand what football means to us. No matter how much you think you know, you don’t. It can’t be explained, it’s learned. If you had an I.Q. over 10 you’d have figured that out by now. As for your important contribution to the human race? Well, has the “world” stopped since it learned what fakes you claim we are? Have wars ended because the “world” has awakened to our farce? Nobody really cares about the whole situation, save you and your circle-jerk buddies.

As for you “single handedly” starting a border war? Well, that means you have to have a rivalry. I wonder if the “world” knows about that great, traditional, Nebraska-Missouri rivalry. Ya, I laughed at that too. Beat us ten or so years in a row, then we’ll talk about a rivalry.

My first, and last, impression of you was pretty much what I expected - an insignificant nobody. I don’t know of any sane person who would devote so much time and energy enlightening the “world” of what an idiot someone else is, especially if nobody supposedly cares. If we are such idiots, what’s your justification for all you’ve done? Are you wearing us down? Are you storming the Capital in a few weeks? Are we all supposed to run and hide? Oh, I forgot – you spent all this time informing the “world” what hicks we are. Thanks for the heads-up.

You’re pretty impressed by yourself with this whole “I’ve informed the world” thing aren’t you? I bet you look in the mirror when you jerk off. I don’t mean that negatively either. I don’t mean to insinuate that you have some character flaw, it’s just a little opinion of what I believe your true personality to be. Hey, we all do it right? It’s just that most of us don’t think of ourselves while doing it, and it lasts longer than the three minutes it takes to microwave a hot pocket.

I understand that you are done responding to this blog. If you weren’t, and were just leading us on (or perhaps waiting for the encore applause), I would ask that you don’t. I wouldn’t want you to waste any more of your valuable time. I wouldn’t want to put you through the rigors of trying to come up with a coherent response. It’s over. According to the rules you set up, you’ve won. I wonder though…if you’re right about us…and it’s so easy to see…why did it take you almost four years to declare victory? Oh, wait, that’s just about the same span of time most Missouri fans dedicate to supporting their team. That does figure.

In haste I have given you too much of my time. I’ve committed the same crime as I’ve accused you, taking too long to make my point. This blog has changed nothing, you’ve simply been preaching to the choir. You are still the insignificant little nothing in a small corner of nowhere that you were in the beginning. You are not even a fraud. My advice is, next time write a book. It will take less time and you might make some money - if you could get anyone to buy it.

Think about what you’ve done. You’ve used people you consider almost subhuman to define yourself. What a moron.

So again, congratulations. You’ve convinced everyone of something that most outside of the two institutions don’t give a shit about. Bang up job AJ.

Ding! Your three minutes are up. Wash, rinse and [please] repeat.

My, that's awfully funny how that works hmmm?

Apparently you haven't read a single word I've written for four years, because if you had...you'd know just how jolly it makes me watching po-dunk inbred hicks such as yourself get all bent out of shape over something one person wrote.

If only you had "discovered" me about 4 weeks earlier...you could have made me seen the light.

Pity.

I am verklempt! I can bearly see through the tears to type. Your final post is the most touching, inspiring, and uplifting thing I've ever read. As a transplant to the land of corn-fed bullshit for twelve years, I have experienced the Red Hoard in person and have thoroughly enjoyed your blog. While there, I made the mistake of giving birth to two children who are now saddled with being "born in Nebraska". As it turns out, there was plenty of time with both of them, we could have easily driven for a border and spared them that label. So it is encouraging beyond belief to see that there is hope - they may not grow up to be total assholes afterall. It is possible to leave the state and overcome!! Thank you so much!!

Holy shit...30 replies in the last year since I've logged into the blog...and at least FOUR outstanding death threats.

I would write a whole new blog for 2010..but we've already seen this stuff before. Just ready the prelude to the 2007 season and you'll get pretty much the exact same thing, with (most likely) the exact same result.

No go run home with your ball to the Big 10 adn try not to piss away any last minute leads against ranked teams. (Something you still haven't done since I stopped writing this blog.)
