I give up: Why do YOU hate Nebraska?

MNW has a terrible idea.

NCAA Football: CFP National Championship-TBD Coach of the Year Reception Butch Dill-USA TODAY Sports

I’ll be honest: I rather enjoy Nebraska. I think the Runza is a culinary treasure, the beer is pretty OK, and the gameday experience was lovely, Hails Mary (Hail Marys?) excepted.

Nebraska exported is another matter. I rather don’t enjoy them in Evanston, and I’m not just talking about your run-of-the-mill “silent count” jokes or “Memorial Stadium East” nonsense (Northwestern is, after all, camp randall south, Kinnick East, Spartan Stadium West, Big House West, and God knows what else. You’re not original, you’re just lucky enough that Jeff Budzien didn’t have enough leg for a 52-yarder).

The reasons I #HatetheHuskers, though, are not really exciting enough to justify a Hate Piece or an Adoration Piece or whatever we’re doing this B1G 2018. (It was a Bad Idea, Graham, and you should feel bad for having had it.)

Instead, I’m crowd-sourcing. Tweet with #HatetheHuskers and add your thoughts to this embedded Twitter feed below.

We’ll curate this bad idea as the day goes on.
