    Some of you might be too young to know this, but the B1G believes we "stole" national titles from Penn State in '94 and Michigan in '97 (even though we split). No doubt in my mind we were better than both of those teams.

    Hate may be too strong of a word, but I believe there is a disdain and "better than you" attitude there.

    If anything the B1G should have a vested interest in us not sucking so badly. They have to want a good Nebraska to balance out the East and get more money in TV deals but we've been shitty instead.

    Our eyeballs show up no matter what though. Arguably, that's part of the problem now. There's not enough pressure to succeed. Sure, we'll fire our coaches over and over, but there's a certain lack of consequences for the shit sandwiches Nebraska fans have been fed and that we're all too eager to keep wolfing down.

    I really hope you aren’t serious in thinking that big ten leadership is punishing us for going undefeated ~25 years ago. FYI Michigan claims and recognizes 97 as a title so why would they give a shit?

    Ours do. But nobody else in the country gives a rat's ass about the B1G West and the B1G title games aren't as interesting as a result. Nobody cares about Iowa or Wisconsin nationally. We would be the name draw if we could hold up our end of the deal. But we can't. Because we're a has been.

    Exactly. We’ve clearly had bad results because we’ve clearly had bad teams. Yet Nebraska fans love finding some sort of boogeyman that they perceive to have an ideology that opposes their own. Can’t be the team that can’t block, tackle, pass, or run’s fault.

    Also, the only natty Michigan has won since the 40s was shared with us. That has to stick in your craw as a fan/alum, especially when you know that natty likely goes away if the teams actually played each other.

    Have you ever talked to some of these people from Michigan, Wisconsin, etc? I believe Michigan refers to themselves as "the Harvard of the West." You can definitely see the arrogance in many of these people. It is quite confounding.

    Not only have I seen these fans, I’ve been to games at Michigan, Penn St, Wisconsin, Northwestern, and Illinois.

    let me tell you, it was a crazy experience, the fans at those stadiums wanted their own teams to win. Wisconsin fans are the scum of the earth. Penn state fans suck. Yes Michigan fans are arrogant, and it makes me laugh instead of have an inferiority complex.


    Texas A and M thinks it’s a military academy. Texas thinks it’s the Harvard of Texas. Oklahoma thinks it was part of the confederacy.

    Do you not remember Colorado fans? Missouri fans? The KU fan who came to games sometimes? K state fans? Texas Fans? Oklahoma fans? Iowa fucking state raising prices for Nebraska fans at bars? What bizzaro world are you from where you think opposing teams should have a kumbaya campfire party pre game?

    There's nobody arguing that it's someone else's fault that we suck. We suck because we suck. My point is it's clear that there's loads of folks who wish we weren't in the league. Here's a tweet from a Minneapolis radio guy from a week or so ago:

    There is definitely a weird “boys club” feel to the Big Ten, whether it’s by design or not, it will hang around for the foreseeable future or at least until Nebraska is consistently competing with the top tier of the conference.

    As dumb as this is, I remember the first year in the B10 the tunnel walk video was littered with Big Ten logos and all that...just seemed weird.

    I’m not saying I hope we leave the B10 or anything like that, but it does get a little annoying feeling like everyone needs to suck up to the conference and fall in line with thinking the playoff is bad and the Rose Bowl is the end all be all. They seem to want to make it harder on themselves than the SEC but then complain when the SEC over signs or plays 4 OOC games. B10 could easily do that stuff.

    Or when the Big 10 tried to just have their own baseball season instead of getting better. Then some new blood showed up to coach these programs and they’ve sent teams to the CWS/Supers somewhat consistently. Weird.

    I think you're being willfully obtuse at this point. My point was I kinda like getting scorned across the BIG media landscape. It's at least interesting since we suck at all sports.

    I think I’m going crazy because I was in this thread a decade ago when we were leaving the big 12 and everyone was excited to get out of the BIG2 and Little 10. Feel like most husker fans would prefer to play in the MWC, have a good record each year, and good water cooler talk about how the Playoff committee snubbed us again!

    Look, like I said, I believe "hate" is too strong of a word. The B1G has a disdain for Nebraska. We have seen it in the scheduling, the reffing, and the behavior of people like Herbstreit and Desmond Howard over the years.

    I also laugh at the "Michigan men" and their arrogance. No inferiority complex here.

    And yes, some of the same elements existed in the Big 12. I imagine most conferences where big money is involved have these elements in play.

    idk how you guys are struggling with the fact that there is only one currency that matters in all of this. It’s wins.

    Does the all powerful media still treat Texas the way they did a decade ago?

    remember when Miss St was the SEC darling for most of a season? How rude of the SEC to not leave them on their pedestal despite lackluster results.

    Minnesota I think. Yeah I guess I shouldn’t say that was a conference wide push, but still an example (not great) of a time where it seems like the Big Ten would rather do it their “own way”.

    Guys, seriously. We suck because we suck. There's no conspiracy against husk. Sure, the B1G is filled with self-important fart sniffers but that's not the reason why we suck.

    Also, to be frank, we were the self-important fart sniffers in the Big 8. We were, to an extent, in the Big 12 as well. Our farts smelled pretty good, too. Then, they stopped smelling good. And now we're shitty at athletics (sans volleyball, women's bowling, ???) and also bottom of the pecking order in academics in our new home. The latter isn't likely to change, but being in the B1G should help overall (that was a big bonus point in making the move). Once our own stench smells good again in athletics, we won't give a shit about the conference we're rocking and rolling in.

    Personally, I know we suck because of our own issues and not the Big Ten. I just find the B10 annoying as hell for a million different reasons and think finally beating the self important fart sniffers would be a cherry on top of not sucking.

    I'm with Pavelk. Fuckin B1G with its "pride" and "standards" and "good universities" can suck our 90s dicks. I like that we're the washed up, alcoholic turd of the conference and I wish we'd lean the fuck into it more. Think Frost wants to, but he's gotta doff what remains of that golden boy sheen, throw on Ratt's "Detonator" at every practice, and strut around crushin' tallboys while unabashedly hurling thickly gendered and homophobic slurs.

    Get too good of grades on the team and Chins is gonna headlock noogie you while sardonically, unironically calling you "college boy"

    We've got a chance to get real fucking honest about our image and identity here in this cake eater conference and hope we don't blow it.

    Agreed. Two things can be true at once. If we didn't stink like shit, we'd get more respect but still be hated because that's what fans do AND we'll always be looked at from the bridge of the B1G's nose as the worst academic school in the conference and new kid on the block that they rescued.

    If people think all we had to do was come in and wreck shit in football and we'd be treated as an equal is a laughable take and you don't have to look any further than how Wilbon and Desmond reacted when we dared push back against the mighty B1G. That reaction had .001% to do with winning football games.

    Teams that wreck shit have few detractors. I don't necessarily agree with Biff Bridges saying us being good wouldn't change how the conference perceived us. Its hard to hate a winner. To be honest I'm pretty sure the only reason other teams fans and media think about us any other time than game day is because we have a propensity to burp n slurp in any hot mic we can get our hands on.

    Would the B1G have gone with an October start date without us screaming at the top of our lungs? My guess is probably... too much money not to. But hey at least our admin did their part in making sure people constantly refresh RSS and made us easy targets for sports pundits at all levels.
