It's an obsession here. There is nothing else here to share the headlines with Nebraska like the way Michigan has MSU, the MAC schools, Pro sports teams. It gets annoying but that's how it is. The Alamo bowl with the crazy ending was one of the worst days ever. That said the people here are the nicest you will find.
The nutty Michigan coverage isn't so much about Harbaugh as it is a signal to the Big Ten that Fox wants to party.
