I pose this question to those of you who were old enough (and willing to admit it) to consciously remember not only the '62 season, but also the general mood going into the season. How do the following compare, now to then: - the expectations of the fan base? - the national / media perception of the program? - other similarities? Obviously the media coverage in '62 was nothing like today; no social media, fan websites, etc. But one comment by HCSF at media days epitomizes the question for me. He was speaking about when recruits visit NU, and "most of the kids don't remember the real Nebraska, but their parents do." Many people nationally (who remember the 90's) seem to think that NU was nothing before Devaney-- but we didn't get to be #3 in all-time wins (as we were before the SP / Perlman Perversion) just through BD's and TO'S wins. I imagine folks in 1962 who remembered Biff Jones, Ed Weir, the '41 Rose Bowl team, etc. who knew we could RETURN to greatness with the right coach / approach / resources.
