Cardale's reaction is priceless! 

Comment 27 Jul 2015

IMO, no. 

A couple things:

1. Nebraska benefited greatly from less restrictions in the 90's. There weren't as many restrictions to the number of walk ons you could have and they were able to recruit academic partial qualifiers from FL and TX. These kids were often a little rough around the edges and would not be able to play by todays academic standards.

2. Nebraska had by far the best strength and conditioning program in the country in the 90's. This was a huge draw and helped them secure recruits who may have been on the fence about committing to a school as isolated as UNL.  The rest of the country has since caught up and they no longer hold that advantage.

I believe the tradition and resources alone will keep them competitive, but I don't see them returning to the kind of former glory that Husker fans hope for.

WolvinLA2 over @ MGoBlog has this to say:

"One thing I realized over the last few years, hat just wasn't as apparent before then, is that a lot of our fan base sucks. A lot. We have a lot of really shitty fans. A lot of them post here. We used to say that we have the best fan base in the country. But we don't. We're no better than anyone else."

Couldn't agree more.

Wouldn't change a thing to the facade. Who am I to mess with a work of art?

I would change the red end zones to green and ban seven nation army though.

Loved the new format, made the derby exciting for once!

Golson threw 14 interceptions, had 8 fumbles lost, and threw four pick sixes. I'm no fan of Brian Kelly but Golson was bad last season.

Doc is a throwback, a poet... the closest thing we have to Grantland Rice today. Some people don't like his style or complain about his voice. I'll admit, when people say they don't like Doc I lose a little bit of respect for them.

Cherry is great. The mini-series "Keep Your Head Up, Kid: The Don Cherry Story" and "Wrath Of Grapes: The Don Cherry Story Part 2" are currently on Netflix, worth the watch for any Hockey fan.

As a Blackhawks fan I was Saad to see my man go but there was no way they could pay him what he wanted so a trade made sense for both sides. I am excited to see what Dano and Anisimov can do!

Go Hawks!
