I got an interesting email from my friend John in Omaha, Nebraska, and he told me about an online petition going around to bring back the Nebraska-Oklahoma game every year. They are in different divisions now in their conference, and are meeting this weekend for The Big 12 championship.
But the fans in the Midwest want the game to be a yearly event again. I remember in my youth the NU-OU always being a big deal on TV, and I can only imagine what it was like in Nebraska and Oklahoma. I didn't realize at the time that they didn't meet every year, but it would be great if it was brought back. I always liked the Cornhuskers in my younger days. (Notre Dame has always been my favorite, but Nebraska always played entertaining football and I got to liking them.)
So John sent me along this online petition, so I've decided to put it up here. I signed it yesterday, and the good folks in Nebraska hope to get 85,000 signatures, enough to fill Nebraska's home stadium.
Here is the link to the petition: http://nu-ou-forever.org
Good luck to the Cornhuskers on Saturday. Kick some Oklahoma butt!!
