A few sprinkles did nothing to dampen the spirits of Husker fans on Saturday.
Gray skies didn't damper Big Red enthusiasm in Columbus for the first stop on Union Pacific's Big Red Express.

My report card for the Gator Bowl...
Nebraska got that ninth win over an SEC opponent. That's a good way to end the year, right?

Interesting comparisons put Bo Pelini's record into a different context.
Of the 2053 men who have ever coached major college football, 107 – about 5 percent – had winning percentages of .706 or better through five seasons. Of those 107 coaches, 43 are in the College Football Hall of Fame. Sixty-two worked before World War II. And eight – much less than 1 percent ...

Up this week for the Huskers...
If Iowa wins on Black Friday in Lincoln, the Hawkeyes will have flipped their 2012 record, going from 4-8 to 8-4 in 2013. It's been a pleasant bounceback for Iowa fans, as the four losses have been to teams with a combined 3 losses in '13.

Thursday, the World-Herald is charging me over $3 so I can get the Walmart ad.  Next Monday, they are booting me from my parking spot so the World-Herald can rent it to somebody else. Does the Omaha World-Herald care about their customers?
No, this has nothing to do with Dirk Chatelain. This is the business of the World-Herald, not any complaint about the editorial quality (or lack thereof) with Omaha's daily newspaper. I'm a subscriber. I know I can read the paper online, but I still like getting the dead tree issue of the paper.

Today  is National Signing Day for college football: the worst day of the year, because the process brings out the worst in everybody.
I love college football, and just about everything associated with it. Except recruiting. Call it a "necessary evil", if you will. Recruiting is the lifeblood of any college athletic program; without players, there is no program. So recruiting is an important first step.

Should Ameer Abdullah return in 2014? I give my reasons why...
Pick your narrative: Another four-loss season for Nebraska. Or, Nebraska beat an SEC team on New Year's Day. They're both right, of course. It all comes down to how you want to view this game and this season. There were a lot of good things to like: Ameer Abdulllah rushing for 122 yards.

Husker fans who hate Bo Pelini shouldn't protest by dropping their tickets. Your fandom can easily outlast Bo Pelini, if he's the wrong guy. And what if he's the right guy?
Some fans are frustrated over the state of Nebraska football. I can relate; ten years ago, I was in your shoes. Here's my advice: don't give up. Your fandom can easily outlast Bo Pelini, if that's your concern.
