Let me say from the start that what head coach Bo Pelini has done with Nebraska in his first year at the helm is impressive. He took a 5-7 Nebraska team and added three wins, including victories over Kansas and Kansas State. I've got quite a bit of respect for the Nebraska football program. They've been in a down cycle for an awful long time, but the Big 12 Conference is better off having them be a national contender out of the North Division. And their fans are truly the most knowledgeable, respectable fans I've seen. I really love when they come to Austin to play. It doesn't hurt that the Longhorns have, well, owned the Cornhuskers for the last dozen years or so.
