Well don't feel bad because the Sooners aren't playing their best football either. It might be a pretty good game... You just never know.

Default more important things

How many things are more important than ball games? Life, children, jobs, vacations, health, homes, relatives, history, the future, food, clothing, cars and just plain the truth. People who "PLAY" in these "GAMES" make millions. Should we waste our money and time watching them "PLAY". I have tried to watch football and baseball and basketball, but I just don't get it. I mean the stuff puts me to sleep. I mean I really tried. I watched 15 minutes of a football game the other day and I guess maybe my life has to be boring, but it's not boring enough. I just don't get out of what someone sees in driving 200 miles. Pays $100 for tickets. $60 for a Jersey and all that money for beer and hot dogs. I think they could cut all the prices in half and pay the players less money and save the people billions.

Good point for sure but life has to have things that are fun to do and I think sports are a very positive outlet. I have to admit that I think football is maybe a bit too rough at times but my boys play it and because I have boys who are athletic and love sports I have learned to love what they love. At least they aren't out on the streets doing drugs, drinking or other dystructive things.

I have always believed that Sports keeps kids disciplined, keeps them busy, teaches them team work amidst a variety of other positive things. I don't know what life would be like for our family without baseball and football practices and games to attend. It has certainly caused our family to remain healthy even though my boys are teens now. It was lacking in my own background and because I wasn't involved in anything productive I turned to the wrong crowd and had my share of alcohol abuse, drugs and the like... I simply did not feel that I was good at anything. I made sure that my boys became good at sports.. Their rooms are filled with plaques, trophies, team pictures, uniforms, and athletic themes. They certainly have a healthy sense of self esteem.

Now don't get me wrong... there are other things that we do as a family as well but it is a great part of our lives. That is why I support sports and I like it... I think it is a healthy past time.

I do agree that the games could be a more affordable and we do not go to professional games.. We watch on TV and use the money for lessons, gear and other things. I would love to take my boys to a pro game but it is just too expensive.

Thanks for your response... Have a great day.

I hope the Husker wipes them out. I have a lot of confidence in Bo and think eventually Nebraska will be on top again.

I agree. Husker fans need to have a little more patience and take a chill pill.

As for the Oklahoma game, I wouldn't expect a win. From watching both teams so far this year, they just aren't the same caliber. Oklahoma has an established system with great athletes.

Nebraska is still trying to wean itself off the Caladouche system and gather some more quality recruits.

2 years from now I think Nebraska could be competitive in the top ten. Assuming we can get a quality QB.

Seriously after watching both teams this weekend I think that Oklahoma is going to kick their fannies.. No offense here to anyone..I can feel the Husker fan's pain right now but I would be surprized if they could pull of a win against the Sooners.

I feel I can be objective since I am truly a Washington Huskie/USC Trojan fan since I lived in those states longer than Nebraska or Oklahoma. I am still trying to get my feet wet here in the Midwest/South after being away for so long...

Hopefully it will be a good game and not too devastating..

I dont know if I would bet on a blow out, but the Huskers better play their damn best.

It will be a fun game to watch for sure especially for me since I have lived both places.
