If one had bought Nebraska stock just prior to the 1962 season, he or she would have had 40 years of great returns. Nevertheless, I didn't expect the current recession to last 17 years. But as you stated, time will tell.
    Lets stop with the stock talk. It’s a poor analogy. Even JL will probably admit that. There is a significant benefit to buy low and sell high with stocks. That doesn’t really apply to sports teams.

    But let’s say they you’re a general contractor and Texas and Nebraska are competing subcontractors. You have to pick one for a huge 5-year commercial project. The bids are identical, so you get to pick. Who are you going into business with? (Hint: the answer isn’t Nebraska)

    Yeah the stock analogy was no bueno.

    So pick the program/subcontractor that rarely lives up to its potential?! The whole Texas vs Nebraska is a straw man argument anyway. Texas will always have built in advantages over Nebraska (and Oklahoma). My point is that Nebraska has always been an outlier and has overcome prolonged down periods in the past. Will Nebraska ever be Nebraska again? Time will tell, I think they will. But I still think it is amusing that an Austin paper is stating that "Nebraska will never be Nebraska again". Maybe the best response is: "Texas will always be Texas".

    Yup, it’s amazing what an upset over Oklahoma will do for the ol’ CV.

    I still think Scott Frost is a very good, possibly great college coach, but it isn’t always easy going back to a place where you were very successful previously. I always liked Frost and hope it works out for him. At the P5 level I think he’s finding much the same that Chip, who is a great coach, that so many teams run spread read concepts and RPOs that you don’t have a disproportionate schematic advantage anymore

    With Ohio State and Michigan State to look forward to, I wonder how much Nebraska would be willing to pay to get that canceled Akron game back on the schedule in hopes of (maybe) avoiding a winless season.

    Nebraska has already addressed the Akron game cancellation; they have scheduled Bethune-Cookman on 10/27. As for the video BigPiney posted, Nebraska has a 29-16-3 advantage over Iowa and is 86-17-2 against Iowa St. So there's still a lot of losing Nebraska has to do for the Iowa teams to catch up. In the midst of a historic losing streak, got to hang on to something. Scott Frost will be given time to turn the ship around. 2018 has been rough but Nebraska is still selling out Memorial Stadium.

    You know you're a bad team when lowly Oregon State is poaching your players. Sorry, Nebraska.

    Nebraska doing their best Texas impersonation right now. Blowing a fourth-quarter lead.
