GO Huskers!

Really glad the kids played well this week and shut up all the Husker "fans" who were calling for Callahans job and saying how horrible we were. I know we arent championship caliber yet but it does look promising....

Its always great to beat CU. They are such a CLASSY bunch!! :-b

Iowa St. just choked away the Big 12 North championship. It looks like Nebraska could possibly be playing Iowa in the Alamo which would be a pretty interesting game if Nebraska plays like they did yesterday and Iowa like they did the last 2 games.

If CU wins they will play in the Big 12 championship, if NU wins we will knock em out of the title game and have some serious bragging rights. plus the fact that will be go to a decent bowl game.


Well, you still have your bragging rights.

almost lost to arkansas. you guys suck.

the big 10 is overrated. the pac 10 is terrible. every conference in NCAA football is bad. no conference is that much better than the other.


Trying to argue the ranks of conferences is difficult. There is no formula. If you want the most Talent...that is clearly the SEC. If you want the most undefeated seasons or blowout wins...dont come near the SEC. Your reference to LSU - Arkansas is a good example. LSU probably has the best talent of all SEC teams, and as you said, Arkansas kept them close and they lost to Tennessee earlier in the year(who we all know is quite poor this year). The fans of Pac-10, Big-10, Big-12 see this as weakness. I see matchups in the SEC that can make talent a secondary issue. It is the crowd noise and momentum and emotion that is unique to only the SEC that determines the outcome. Bowl games can't even accomplish the atmosphere that is present at an Iron Bowl, a cocktail party, or rivalries such as Alabama vs UT, Georgia vs. Auburn. SEC football at it's finest.

KU is a good team but there is no way ISU should have lost today with all the breaks they got...

You guys are serious?
I'll accept that everyone has an opinion of what the "best" rivalry is, but you can't say that there are no good emotional rivalries outside the SEC. UM-OSU is one of the top rivalries, and even a smaller one like UM-MSU is very emotional--the past two years it's gone to OT. Even if Drew Stanton had kept his stock up all year, there was talk that he wouldn't go pro just because he wanted to beat Michigan.
And those are just rivalries that are related to Michigan.

I think the first one was meant to be... ;-7

I think theres a lot of SEC fans that dont realize that football is actually played outside that conference. I was watching the CBS halftime show of the FLA/FSU game. Not sure if it was Manning or the other fool, but one of the made a comment about how tough Arkansas was at 3-8, and how great a win that was for LSU to beat such a tough Arkansas team, and Arkansas would be at least 7-4 if they were in the Big12. I nearly LMAO! I guess now that ND owns NBC, the collective SEC has completely bought the SEC. Guess the other conferences will have to see which network they can buy.

My first post was serious, my second was a little tongue-in-cheek. Maybe I used the wrong icon to indicate that. There are big rivalries outside the SEC. But it takes such games to even rival a normal SEC atmosphere at the prominent SEC programs. If you take the top SEC teams - Auburn, Alabama, LSU, Florida, Georgia, Tennessee. Match any of those two up. The atmosphere is greater or equal to that of any game in America. Collectively, you can't beat it. Some years you may even include Ole Miss and Arkansas into that goup. Some of you have stated that some fans in the south don't believe that football exists outside of the SEC. That furthers my point. It doesn't exist...to them. It's all that matters to them.
