glad you had a good gameday experience, (happier we won, of course)
i refuse to even consider this a possibility
glad you had a good gameday experience, (happier we won, of course)
That is dignity. Do you see that, Michigan State?
glad you could make it. next time stay longer.
For your thoughtfulness and class! This is just the start of a rivalry that looks to provide tons of excitement for years to come. Have a safe trip home and as always, Go Blue :)
and then Sparty falling to 3rd rival behind Ohio and Nebraska. I give it 5 years.
I always thought they were behind Notre Dame also...
You are always welcome around these parts- glad to see that there is another fanbase in the B1G that values sportsmanship and class. Good luck against Iowa and your bowl game, Nebraska is a better team than the score reflected.
Actually the addition next to Crisler is a brand new practice facility. The hockey rink is on the other side of the parking lots and practice fields, it's a much older looking building. It is really beautiful and really takes you back if you can get in when it's empty and look around. Definitely worth a visit.
Glad you enjoyed your trip, we (most of us anyway) pride ourselves on being good hosts- we have learned from watching the way MSU and OSU do things!
.....is actually where my mother-in-law works. It is where the Occupational Safety and Envrionmental Health group resides. Security is near there too, I think.
EDIT: A bit of city history - it was a factory at one point in its life. Allied Screw Works, I think.
That's the Campus Safety Services Building AKA the Kipke building. The UM police are in there with Occupational Safety and Environmental Health and storage facilities for one of the archaeological museums and the paleontology museum.
The team recently moved out of their old practice facility Oosterbaan fieldhouse, they are now at Glick Fieldhouse, which opened a couple years ago.
Either way, Crisler and the stadium are a bit separated from the other sports. Hope you got to see a bit of the town while you were in A2, or get to see some more when/if you can make it back!
I highly recommend heading to Yost tonight for the game vs Ohio State. There's nothing like the atmosphere at a Michigan hockey game. Tickets should be around $20
I hope we can aspire to the class that Nebraska fans show, both on the road and to visitors in Lincoln.
You sir haz it. Its refreshing to have have a normal fan base in the BiG. Good luck the rest of way Huskers.
Husker is a Huskette....
Look at her sig...
glad you enjoyed the trip. ive heard nothing but great things about lincoln and nebraska fans. i'll be out there next year and look forward to it. great day to be a michigan wolverine!
I amvery happy that you enjoyed your time in Ann Arbor! Thanks for posting this - very classy.
that not only have the Husker fans I've interacted with been very classy but what I saw on the field today echoed that as well. I saw players from both teams helping each other off the turf and showing a lot of respect towards one another. I wish more teams in the B1G behaved that way. Yes I'm looking at you sparty and tsio. I think Nebraska was a great addition to our conference and I'm surprised it took as many attempts as it did to gain entry.
thanks for post husker, i think this will be a good rivalry in the future as both teams will most likely play for division champion from year to year once michigan state's magic run burns out
The birth of a rivalry? I think so. Thanks for visiting Ann Arbor. Glad you had a great experience. Hope you guys beat iowa friday and hopefully Michigan takes care of business next Saturday. Go Blue and Beat ohio!
Didn't neg you, but it may have been because Husker's sig line implies that she's a lady.
I hope you make an annual habit of that.
all opposing fans be like this?
Hope to see you back in Ann Arbor a couple years!
I'm also glad you've embarrassed your Ohio and E. Lansing counterparts with your class. You're welcome back here anytime on a Michigan winning weekend.
I was very excited to get Nebraska in the B1G and posts like this are confirming my beliefs about your school. Can't wait to play you guys again next year, and best of luck to you next week.
They are cheerful even in defeat. Yall are nice folks. Safe trip home!
Good to see that the fabled Lincoln sportsmanship travels as well. Here's to many years of a great rivalry that is long overdue!
I could have been in the locker room to hear Hokes postgame speech.
and totally deserved the win. Wolverines beat the Huskers in all 3 phases of the game.
I really expected a Nebraska win today and was disappointed it wasn't a more hotly contested game.
We'll get after you next year in Lincoln, Go Big Red!
We UM won the special teams war. Those fumbles and penalty on the punt really hurt Nebraska.
always refreshing to hear from classy opponents.
this should develop into a great, respectful, intense rivalry.
I smell a great rivalry in the making . . . great traditions, great teams, great fanbases - a chance to show America how the game should be played on and off the field. I hope our fans are as gracious when the game goes against us.
I'm thrilled you enjoyed A2; we take our role as hosts very seriously. You make me homesick (I live in Australia now and getting back for a game will be rare indeed). I hope our fans enjoy Lincoln next year.
Win out big, Big Red . . . and GO BLUE!
Trivia: Did you know that Greg Norman had to learn to throw a Bowie Knife for his role in Crocodile Dundee?
Greg Norman is a golfer from Australia. Paul Hogan is Crocodile Dundee.
They kind of look alike though.
His highly strategic throwing of a Bowie knife ensured his 1987 Masters win...
Can't wait for the M-NU rivalry to develop over the years. My wife is saying that ND should add Nebraska to their schedule so they can lose to four B1G teams each year.
You sir are a gentleman and a scholar...
On a sidenote, I want to make it to next year's UM-Neb game, any suggestions on where to tailgate and where to hang out at night in enemy territory for a non-HUsker sorta kinda grown guy??
It's ma'am, not sir. Apparently there are women on the internet.
Wow, thanks for the heads-up ,, its the internet and you know what happens when you assume..Sorry Husker4Life
You maam, are a Lady and a Scholar!!...Still doesn't sound quite right, so I'll just say Good work and excellent post and call it a day
and now I double post, no more drinking and typing for me, I'm taking a nap
Husker4life, you're so nice it makes me scared. I hope Michigan fans were all decent to you, because if they weren't we'd have some bad karma. Have a safe trip home!
We also really appreciate Nebraska for beating Ohio State and Michigan State.
Thank you for being gracious. I am very surprised at the outcome of the game.Presumably your guys just had a bad hair day and we a good one. GO Big Red ( when not playing us ). It is a pleasure not reading " we own you" or "you suck my ____" as we do on the MSU and OSU sites. When you start beating them regularly then you will hear it too. Then you have arrived.Hope you never hear anything like that on this site !
This is a big reason why Nebraska is my second favorite team in the country - fans who appreciate a good football game, regardless of the outcome, and have the class to say so!
Have a safe trip, and beat Iowa next weekend.
Welcome to the Big Ten! We're happy to have your great sportsmanship on the field and off. This game was Big Ten football the way it was meant to be played. Good game!
We haz defense??!?!?
Charles Woodson says "Now give us our trophy back"
you'll have to settle for the W and holding claim to the virtual 1997 NC trophy for a year.
As an usher it was the easiest opposing crowd that showed up with numbers that I can remember. Classy fanbase.
This is going to be a hell of a rivalry in the next couple years, MSU will fall back and fight Iowa for 3rd, but I can see the winner of the Michigan vs Nebraska game going to the Big Ten Championship year in and year out.
we have too many games like this :)
Seriously, though, the divisional set up should end up changing some rivalry priorities in the B1G
I think this is a key reason that we were all so happy to have Nebraska join the Big Ten. It isn't just the success that their team has on the field, it is also the knowledgeable and classy fan base. I look forward to playing them for years to come.
It sounds like you enjoyed your stay; next time come early and see some more! :)
I don't know it you did it for this week's game, but feel free to ask us about good places to dine, or things to see the next time you plan on coming to Ann Arbor...good luck next week against the Hawkeyes!
Because wins and losses will do that over time. But we won't hate each other's fans. Good luck going into Columbus next year. It's kinda different.
Mom grew up in Columbus, NE (Not Ohio) and watched every Husker game she could all her life. Grandma lived to be 93 and watched every game. Grandpa was rabid and talked about them every day. My uncle played for the Huskers.
I never lived there, and went to school at Michigan, but Nebraska has always been my second favorite team. There's a lot in common: history and tradition, knowledge and class. Glad you had a good time in Ann Arbor, and look forward to many more years of this new and important rivalry.
Go Blue, and every other Saturday, Go Big Red!
(one was a business associate of my wife) and they were very classy, and took the loss with great sportsmanship. I was very impressed with their fans. I didn't observe one obnoxious Cornhusker fan all day. I'm really glad they joined the conference. Can't wait to see their stadium and campus next year. Go Blue!
Of course I am glad we were victorious today but it is our benefit as a conference you joined . You have such great tradition and fan base you have made us better. I am looking forward to a road trip. Four of the top ten in victories. Good luck in your next two games. I hope all of your visits to the Big House are memories of respectful competitors welcoming you to our community.
What gets me going here is that we'll likely play even better next week. The kids have bought in completely and the team has turned the corner. Next year the sky is the limit.
All the Nebraska fans I met were great. And there were plenty of them; your reputation for traveling in big numbers to support your team is well-deserved. Good luck against Iowa and in your bowl game.
I was really impressed by how well the Nebraska fans traveled and how courteous they were. Hopefully we'll be as good when we go down there.
I think my heart grew a few sizes after reading this!
Great to see the respect between the players on the field as well...
to the B1G like Nebraska. You're finally in a conference that fits your mold
Yeah I talked to a lot of nebraska fans and just greeted them to ann arbor... They loved it, you could tell.
Welcome to you and your school. This will be a fun, respectful battle for many years to come.
Very happy to have Nebraska in the Big Ten. It is a tailor-made match.
One of the biggest benfits to the B1G in adding Nebraska will be in bowl games. It gives the B1G an elite program to consistently match up against SEC teams.
That is a very kind post. Good people and good program out there in Lincoln. I thought Nebraska was very physical and hit hard on offense and defense.
I really enjoyed all of my interactions with the nebraka fans as well. welcome to the big10. very happy to have you guys. looking forward to a lifetime of it.
God I loved Nebraska fans... So nice and classy. I loved greeting them to Ann Arbor and just wanted to make sure they had fun and enjoyed every bit of their trip. I want to go to Lincoln next year but I don't know if I can afford it. Best of luck to ya Huskers, but always GO BLUE!!!
