Red Out Around the World

Apparently Nebraska doesn’t like to let things go. Some fans (I assume) are starting a campaign called “Red Out Around the World,” showing the “world” (does anyone really care) how mad they are about the Big 12 Championship. I guess it was all just to much to handle and they had to up and leave the conference.

Nebraska. A place of integrity, family, commitment. Where traditions are forged in the furnace of July. But hardened on Saturday nights in November. A place where the best thing about summer, is when it turns into fall. These last few months, thunderstorms weren’t the only power building over the Great Plains….

Wait? What?!? Forged in the furnace of July? An 85 degree furnace? Since apparently the summers are pretty boring there, it looks like they had nothing better to do than make this video.

And you know what else is sad? I could have made a better video with my iPhone 4.

Updated the video below. The first one was taken down.

    Hey Matt – you ever been to Nebraska in July – it’s not 85 pal…and go get an English degree – it’s too much not to much genius.

    We had that game sealed up and you guys got lucky..very lucky…that’s two games in four years where UT skinned out of a very near loss to NU.

    Checked the polls lately – they’ve all got OU over UT for the Big 12 in 2010 vs. Nebraska…GO BIG RED!

    dear scurvy,

    on nebraskas weather: you should have kept quiet; a 40 degree furnace ain’t too great either

    on us getting lucky: IF you ever beat us again (even though you probably wont have the balls to schedule us after fleeing the big 12), i’ll assume that any points nebraska scores will be because they “got lucky…very lucky.” thats five times in a row that texas has beaten nebraska

    on the polls: sometimes cheering for another team solely to spite the one that causes your jealousy isn’t the answer. if you REALLY weren’t scared of texas, you wouldn’t be scared to play us in the championship again

    overall, the only thing you’ve got on the author of this article is that he made the terrible typo of missing one key while typing an entire article. i made sure not to put too much effort into capitalization and punctuation so you’ll have plenty of my mistakes to jeer at, thus allowing you to feel like a winner

    much love

    Wow, Longhornintown…you think we have 40 degree summers…this is Nebraska, not Alaska…get a clue. Of course I have learned that if something is outside of your “great state of Texas” you don’t care to learn too much about it, but I digress.

    Are you Texas fans jealous of the fact that we have a fan base bigger & better than yours?? Apparently not everything is bigger in Texas. And where do you get the idea that we are scared to play you in a Championship Game? Give me a break, we WILL be Victorious in Lincoln during the regular season, and IF you are lucky enough to make it out of the South to play in the Big 12 Championship we will be there waiting for you wear we will take that game from you too as we happily slam the door on what is left of this Conference.

    Hahahahahahah at texas. GO BIG RED! 10/16/10!!!!

    Nice how you miss the point of the vid. It has nothing to do with spite. It’s simply circling our biggest opponent of the regular season. You should take it as a compliment. The site and vid are for husker fans to connect and unite and thats the game they picked. Who else but the team that has caused the most heartbreak. Used to be Sooner Magic and now its Texas.

    @Husker23: Um you think Nebraska has a bigger fanbase than Texas? Are you serious? Factual things like merchandise sales and TV ratings would beg to differ.

    Texas Sucks

    Yep…your right Texas sells more merchandise….thats because all the little gang bangers think its cool to wear texas stuff. has nothing to do with your fan base idiot. Go Big Red!

    The only thing good about Texas and this sinking conference…is that Nebraska will be making 25 million dollars in the BigTen Conference and watching Texas destroy the Big 12 and it’s little sisters. We all need to thank Texas and their GREED for showing us the LIGHT; we are OUT! BLACKSHIRTS
