You completely miss the point. I'm not living in the past, I'm not glorifying that Nebraska had a great history for the sake of glorifying Nebraska. My point is that we don't HAVE to live in the past. We own your ass in perpetuity because of it. Yesterday, Today, Tomorrow. All of it. And there is NOTHING you can do about it because your program never has, isn't now and by the looks of it, never will be capable of doing anything about it.You are making every Iowa fan's point for them and a poster child for the Husker way of thought of many:
You're living deep in the past starting with your screenname. Christ dude, when have the Blackshirts truly the "blackshirts"? 20 years ago? One of the most porous defenses in college football for years resides in Lincoln. Do you also wear bell bottoms, leisure suits, and have a mullet? You're wanting to envision MANY years gone by. This isn't about Iowa, or Ohio State, or Wisconsin-- three schools that have made Nebraska look foolish in recent years (how many games in a row have you lost to these three now?).
Instead, it's an indictment of living in the past--the past that's now 20 years in your rear view mirror. (FYI- Iowa has won more football games over the past 20 years than has Nebraska). Now you're even losing kids in your own back yard to Iowa and Minnesota.
Continue to live in the glory of the past dude.
Iowa's history was so pathetic and it's recent success has been so mediocre (congrats on winning 2 more games over the last 20 years) that no matter how good Iowa MAY be in the future it would take so long for you to even come close to where Nebraska is as a program TODAY that you also have no future worth mentioning at all in context to us no matter what Nebraska does going forward.
You have and continue to suck so bad as a program that next to Nebraska you still have nothing to crow about whether we talk about the past, the present or the next 20+ years.
Iowa is completely irrelevant to not just Nebraska but anything regarding the top echelons of College football and will be for a LONG LONG time, and we (or really anyone else) don't actually have to even do anything for a couple decades to keep it that way.
Oh and putting Iowa in any way in a conversation along side Ohio State may just be the biggest joke of anything you've said.
