Texas received far too much air time in that ad.
I think that tradition started in the early Devaney years.
I kind of liked the ad. More exposure than we usually get.
I think Nebraska should be happy just to make the commercial based on the finish last season. If we have a good season this year...maybe they will show actual game footage next year.
So fans only wore red when the team is winning?
I don't think the fans wore red between 1890 and 1941. And they did wear red in 2004 and 2015.
How about them Bugeaters!
Boo! Trying to bend someone's "ear"???
Love your pride, although this statement is probably a bit myopic. There are other candidates....."Thundering Herd", "Haymakers", and "Wooden Shoes". And what about the "Cattle Feeders" from Everly, Iowa ? If that doesn't jive somehow with "Cornhuskers"...then I dunno!
The Banana Slugs of UC Santa Cruz is pretty damn unique too.
I don't know any of those teams so obviously they are not as well known. Well maybe one is the thundering herd Marshall
Scottsdale fighting artichokes
Concordia cobbers (corncobs)
Actually, the Big Ten has some of the more unique mascots in American sports, largely due to their age.
I can't think of a single team called Hawkeyes, Illini, Hoosiers, Buckeyes, or Terrapins in all other sports. And there are a few like NITTANY Lions, GOLDEN Gophers or SCARLET Knights who get a bit more unique because of their compound names.
Michigan State or Northwestern have the blandest mascot in the conference, by far. Thousands of Spartan and Wildcat teams across sports.
Tip of the hat to Oklahoma, here, as I think "Sooner" is every bit as unique and personifies a whole state like Cornhuskers does for Nebraska.
Separate names with a comma.
