I'm sure by now you've all heard Bo Pelini's comments concerning the fans during Saturday's game versus Kansas. I'm honestly surprised it took Bo this long to say something about the fans. I have been to three games at Memorial Stadium (by no means a regular), but that place is QUIET, he is absolutely right. I have mentioned this to Bugeater on more than one occasion, of course he disagrees.
My college football travels are not as extensive as I would like them to be, but I have been some major venues around the country. I have been to games at Camp Randall, Ben Hill Griffin, and Doak Campbell as well as various bowl games throughout the state of Florida. All venues full of enthusiastic ravenous fans much louder than those found in Memorial Stadium. People here in NE are starting to air their "I was told to sit down by stadium security" stories on the local sports talk shows. This is ridiculous, this blows my mind. Take notice when watching the game down in College Station, that place will be rocking.
Please don't take this the wrong way, this is not an indictment of NU fans in anyway. Living here I see that they have the passion and intelligence that matches and exceeds that of other fan bases throughout the country.Or is it a slight to Memorial Stadium experience, the atmosphere in Lincoln on gameday is awesome, and the Tunnel Walk is spine tingling, but after that it's all down hill. What are your thoughts Nebraska fans?
