Cornhuskers - First week not in top 25 in 348 polls!



Pooooor Huskers.

Last time they were unranked is 1981. Da Thrilla wasn't even born yet.

Yes, this was mentioned in the "Polls" thread, but deserves special recognition.

The Cornhuskers are so bad...

How bad are they?

They are so bad, that even the Aggies are ranked and they're not.

At least its obvious to everyone that the defense isn't the problem, offense 19 plays in the first half, woo-hoo. NU does play a Division II school this week, McNeese State, so we might look decent this week.

Which other records might stop this year:

-consecutive nine win seasons, since 1962 (i think)
-consecutive bowl trips (still need 7 total victories, might be tough)
-consecutive years with a winning record


I would like to see the consecutive sellout streak come to end, maybe our athletic director will stop his search for the almighty $$$. His latest mission is to get rid of all student tickets at the football games, wtf.

why 7 more?
unless they changed something.. you only need 6 wins against IA schools.. and i think there is even a stipulation that will let a win against a IAA school count every so often?

I'm not sure if they play 12, but if they do, they have to win 7 (total, not 7 more)

If you play 12 games you only need 6 victories. They changed the rules this year to let 6-6 teams go to bowls, you no longer have to have a winning record, you just have to be at .500 or better if you play 12 games. I'm also pretty sure that 1 I-AA game can count toward that total every year now.


Any way, to get on topic, all I have to say about Nebraska not being in the top 25 is..................
