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

    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!!
    GO BIG RED!

    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.


    Born a Nebraskan, raised a Nebraskan, will die a Nebraskan!! Go Big Red!



    Men of Israel, consider carefully what you intend to do to these men. Some time ago Theudas appeared, claiming to be somebody, and about four hundred men rallied to him. He was killed, all his followers were dispersed, and it all came to nothing. After him, Judas the Galilean appeared in the days of the census and led a band of people in revolt. He too was killed, and all his followers were scattered. Therefore, in the present case I advise you: Leave these men alone! Let them go! For if their purpose or activity is of human origin, it will fail. But if it is from God, you will not be able to stop these men; you will only find yourselves fighting against God.” - Gamalie the Pharisee - Addressing the Sanhedrin regarding the new group called Christians
    "I support collecting more in taxes from people with high incomes who choose to actually pay taxes at lower tax rates than use lawyers and accountants to avoid taxes at higher tax rates," he wrote. "Some tax revenues at low tax rates is a heckuva lot better than no tax revenues at high tax rates." - Art Laffer (on 999 plan)
