This has occasionally crossed my mind, and it usually occurs to me on account of athletics, but can someone smarter than me (and how many can that be, really...) tell me why Nebraska doesn't have a "State" school? Seems most states have one. Texas and Texas State, Kansas and KSU, Colorado and CSU, even the Dakota's have them. In fact, seems most states do. Oddly, Wisconsin is one of the few that doesn't. But why doesn't Nebraska have a Nebraska State? I sometimes wonder how intriguing that would be and what kind of rivals that would make. But what happened to Nebraska with this? Anyone know, exactly? I mean, it can hardly be due to population when both the Dakota's sport them, or even Montana and Idaho.
