Yes, I am one of those Husker Football Nation inhabitants who thought, perhaps, Scott Frost's swooping down into the coveted UNL Head Football Coach role would save the team from impending doom, thus bringing back something remotely close to Nebraska's National Championship team he (and WE) remember like just yesterday.
But no. Not yet, anyway.
I do get that we must be patient as Coach Frost scares off the bad karma continuing to curse the team into its doomed state. Unfortunately, Husker Nation itself (me included) needs some serious coaching in said patience, something of which was depleted after the downward spiral began and continued spiraling for way too many years.
So as I realize the 2018 football season is going to involve a big huge learning opportunity for a whole bunch of over-eager (wishful-thinking?) fans wearing red every weekend...
Still rooting for the Vikings even though they didn't exactly make it to the Super Bowl this year, that along with eating a big plate of spaghetti & meatballs while checking out the fun commercials and jamming out with Justin Timberlake during the halftime show.
After listening to an extremely disappointing first half of the Nebraska vs. Northern Illinois football game, this is me escaping to the US Post Office where I mailed a care package of goodies to my eldest college peep, the non-Husker student. Unfortunately, I returned to experience an equally disappointing second half and must find some way to forget the fact that my other college peep, the actual Husker, is probably feeling even more down due to his choice of becoming a season ticket holder this year.
