    November 3rd 2012 marks exactly 50 years since the streak started. So naturally we have to go to East Lansing. BS I say.

    Luck of the draw I guess? I say slay some Spartans in retaliation!

    Well I guess we need to make East Lansing Lincoln east that day.

    Well, even though 11/3 was the actual date the streak started, as with everything in life, things can often be seen in more than one way. The streak started in the 5th home game of 1962 (Missouri), this year we play Michigan at home in the 5th home game of the season. Now, a victory in THAT GAME would be a great way to celebrate.

    Why not celebrate it the next game at home? Who wants to celebrate away? Why bother?

    Doesn't make a bit of sense. You think the folks in E. Lansing care? Are they going to
    give up all their seats, to fill it with Nebraska fans only? Geeeeeeeeeeesh!! Yeh, that is
    dropping the ball, all right!!

    Not fair to the fans of Nebraska, who fill the seats!

    The date it started does not matter just the year. Just celebrate it at the next home game. Cause that is when it is important. I have never heard it described as years anyway, it has always been homes games in a row that have been sold out.
