Fair point. It doesn't change the fact that oftentimes people choose grudges over money. We have all the makings of a grudge.I think some of that is fair but this goes beyond viewership within fan bases. I agree that number will be pretty static, but a good Nebraska team draws a national audience in ways that a good Indiana, and even Iowa, team doesn’t. That is why Nebraska was added to the Big Ten.
First off, the Big Ten was butthurt that Nebraska was innocently looking for outside opponents to play. We didn't call anyone out or disrespect anyone until the Big Ten cried about it. That right there is a sign that they're pissed off at us.
Now add in the fact that we're at a 10-0 disadvantage on holding penalties? Our defensive line is actually pretty decent... yet they haven't forced a single hold? And I've still yet to see where the holding was on our one-yard dive play into the end zone against Illinois. Didn't even realize it was possible to hold on such a play, but somehow the refs found one that the video doesn't reveal.
