Go 'Huskers, Beat Sooners!

It just needed to be said.


Go Navy, Beat Army!

Update 1918 01 Dec: Unlike last year, there don't seem to be a lot of "Spirit Spots" out for this year's Army-Navy game. To make up for it, here's a nice video from last year that celebrates the history of the series (from a Navy perspective):

And for Nebraska fans, here's a video of the Johnny Rodger's punt return in the '71 NU-OU Game of the Century (no quotes required for a statement of fact) that has Lyle Bremser's radio call. Guaranteed to bring chills to any Big Red fan.

And, although it's really not applicable to tomorrow's game, but just because I like seeing it again, here's a video of Tommy Frazier's 75 yard run against Florida in the '95 National Championship game. Why, oh why did we ever give up on the option offense?

Update 2237 02 Dec: 50 passes, 7 points. That's why I don't like the new "West Toast Offense" that Nebraska Athletic Director Satan forced on the 'Huskers three years ago.

Well, at least Navy won. And at least I won't have to spend the next month with rabid Boise St. fans giving me crap for wearing Nebraska stuff.

Would you rather have Navy's running attack than the Husker O? Nice to be #1 in rushing.

Do you miss the Fumblerooski?

Callahan's got some pretty good trick plays, including the fumblerooski. Glad it's Huskers and Sooners for the championship(finally!). Go Huskers!

When I was on the USS Nebraska, almost every routine 1MC announcement was followed with "Go Big Red!". i.e., "Commence Snorkling. Go Big Red!"

"Dive, Dive! Go Big Red!"

"Station the Manuevering Watch. Go Big Red!"

"High Chlorides in the Starboard Main Condensate Bay, Casualty and Assistance Team, Section One, Lay Aft. Go Big Red."

We were very big 'Huskers fans.

The fumblerooski was banned a while ago.

Being from Oklahoma and an Army Vet I have to say you have made some questionable choices in teams to aline yourself with.

Well, it looks like we decided to try another heretofore unknown play in the book last night ... the Interception-rooski. Pity it never worked out and Oklahoma just kept the ball.

Still smirking over "Athletic Director Satan" -- I may have to use that when trying to describe Pederson.
