I decided to record with about a minute left. Right as Nebraska's final drive began. I went down to the stands with about ten minutes left because I needed to pace. I've learned over the past, oh, you know, 35 years, that until the clock strikes zero I cannot celebrate. I don't care if we're up by 14. Get me to 0:00.

I'll warn you - this one is random. I can't get my thoughts together. I pause to high five about seven people. But when you start 1-0, you get to run around like a maniac. And record yourself.

You can not put that South Florida evil out there! Not during a game, ever.

Happy for you dude. First real game as a resident. And “NEBRASKA was the team that made the mistakes.” Priceless.

I’m worried about you my friend! But congrats on the big win. A new era begins for Illinois football.

Finally. Nebby played the game we have been forced to watch the beloved play for decades...continuously stepping on their d!cks to sabotage their offense.

We finally have a game control coach. Time consuming drives facilitated by snapping with two seconds left on the play clock, time chewing run plays, keeping the opponent’s defense on the field in 90 degree heat, so they wear out in the fourth quarter.

How many games have we lost because our coach doesn’t understand this basic aspect of the game?

Too early to get excited, but we FINALLY have someone in charge who gets it.

-I-N-I! Meats and drinks are always so much tastier after a win. Cheers!

Love the sound of those high fives. Put the hand on ice tonight, my dude.

Also: my thought process is similar to yours: does this win change the season? Dare to dream!

Glad we won but, hate the neanderthal football! This is not high school!
