    Quit whining, this schedule gives us character

    maybe they changed the Nebraska game because they want OSU to make the CFP and they wanted to give them the biggest cup cake possible to start the season my answer is it doesn’t matter when the teams play and there was no ulterior motive for the changes (which occurred for every single team) -...

    please tell me you aren't posting in a thread regarding Neb being a blue blood and then discounting games in the 60s - 70s - 80s and 90s? - you can't be that dull-witted Nebraska isn't a blue blood without those eras
