Quote of the Day

​

"[Sniff, sniff!!] I’ve got a good football team with a great football coach [sniff, sniff!!] that deserves a break here or there to start getting back on track to being a contender in the Big Ten West. [Sniff, sniff!!]"


University of Nebraska Athletic Director Bill Moos crying about the Big Ten schedule that the Huskers will have to play. They have Ohio State and Penn State right off the bat and not some powerhouse like Smith College. Earlier, when the Big Ten first said they were not playing football this year, Nebraska wanted to breakout of the conference and still play but the Big Ten said no. Now they get to play football and are whining about who they play. As the ol' saying goes:

It's hard to be humble when you're a Husker!!​
