The Huskers have been in the B10(1) for less than a week, and I'm already confused. In my mind:
NU = Northwestern University
UN-L = University of Nebraska - Lincoln
I've definitely seen those abbreviations plenty the last few days. But then I started seeing NU, and then words like 'red' and 'ndamukong' in the same comment/article. So, like a good MGoPerson, I did some googling. It is officially, the University of Nebraska. It is not Nebraska University. (I was right - insert condescending laugh.)
Has anyone else noticed this? How pissed would you be if people abbreviated University of Michigan as MU?
Update: Yep, it seems to be a Big 8 phenomenon (KU, OU, etc.). Still makes me uneasy; what illogical thing will they do next?
