    The Huskers are part of college football royalty and it's time to see them rise up again. They represented well on their last run.

    Don't particularly care either way. Nebraska is a talent less state that thinks they are more important than they are.

    No, but if they were to move back to B12, sure.
    Nebby fans seem nice enough, but I don't want a top 5 team in our division.

    You pussy land thieves should have stuck with the homesteaders. I miss you Sooner bastards. We'll be more than all right in the B1G.

    See you in 2021. **** Texas.

    Let's pump the brakes a little bit and see if they can consistently finish in the top 5 of their division first.

    I think many on this board were not born yet when that legacy was created.

    Nebraska belongs on grainy blurry film with bad color. Whoa Nelly.

    Edit: Answer is No. Hardly missed at all. You make Iowa seem important.

    It has now been 18 seasons since NE was in the running for a title near the end of a season, and it's been 22 seasons since NE actually won a national title. I'm not sure when NE will return to national prominence, or if it will ever again recruit successfully on a national level. The right coach, however, makes all the difference.

    Of the "bluebloods," these are the years they last prominently figured in the national title competition near the end of the season:

    Alabama-2018
    Notre Dame-2018
    Oklahoma-2018
    Ohio State-2016
    Texas-2009
    USC-2008
    Michigan-2006
    Nebraska-2001

    How old do you think the average poster on here is? The last time Nebraska played in a NC game was 2001, the last one they won one was 1997 and their last conference championship win was 1999. I doubt many posters on here are between 20 - 22.



    Did y’all even read the thread title or did you just see Nebraska in the title? At least post something relevant to the topic before posting your hater take. Just sayin.

    I’ll stick by my post. Nebraska is irrelevant. Plenty of other relevant teams can be in the top 5.

    Knowing you as I do, I interpret your comment as wishing Nebraska was always the #5 team and therefore always good, but not good enough to play for it all.

    That’s very mean. Per chance are you an Oklahoma fan?

    I am thinking that most remember the Osborne years 80s and 90s and I would guess if the majority on this board were alive they were still too young to have followed Nebraska or college football.

    Cool. Your post is a little contradictory, but no worries. I don’t put much stock into the opinions of anyone younger than 35. With age comes perspective and I remember being in my 20s and early 30s.

    "The Huskers Illini, Panthers, Gophers, Black Knights, Wolverines, Spartans, Vols, Longhorns, Hurricanes, Nittany Lions are part of college football royalty and it's time to see them rise up again."

    The landscape has changed. It's all about the Jessies and Joes, and there is too much football on TV. No longer have only the major networks focus on the old bluebloods of the Midwest, while everyone else outside of Alabama and Southern Cal were ignored.

    Frost can build Nebraska to be a solid, extremely good team in the mold of Wisconsin, Virginia Tech, Michigan State and other teams with similar recruiting abilities, but the days of the monster Nebraska teams are long past...

    A lot of truth there, however, IF Nebraska can put together some 9-10 win seasons, it’s possible Frost could get recruiting back into the teens with an occasional top ten class. Over time I’ve learned to never say never. I agree though, it is extremely difficult to be a consistent top 5 team without top 10 recruiting talent.

    I reject the OP's premise wholesale.

    To use an analogy, this is akin to stating "The Nazis are part of history's royalty and it's time to see them rise up again. They represented well on their last run."




    Pro Tip: the "like" button is just down a bit and to the right.

    Not really. I started watching CFB just as Nebraska was falling off so I don't really think of them in those terms.
