08:17 AM ET 08.31 | Mack Brown is taking the high road. For a variety of reasons, Texas has been blamed by Nebraska officials for forcing the Huskers to the Big Ten. Just don't tell Brown. Texas' coach has done his best to drain the hostility out of that meeting. "It's the only place in the country where I've been where we broke a 47-game home winning streak [1998] and I thought Ricky Williams would get abused after the game," Brown said. "Those fans stayed and gave him a standing ovation after the game and they gave him a chant, 'Heisman, Heisman, Heisman.' To me, Nebraska has the best fans in the country. If there has been some tension between Texas and Nebraska I don't see it carrying over to the kids, I don't see it carrying it over to the coaches. By and large, Nebraska has the classiest setup in the country."

OK I am not trying to be a smart arse even though that is the way it is going to sound.

Do you think that the Nebraska fans are really nice because they know that they are lucky to have the tradition they have? I mean it is in the middle of nowhere in a state that has a population smaller most cities in other states. Every game is like Christmas for them.

I agree it is accurate. I think I even saw an ESPN segment on this at some point. I guess it is just hard for me to imagine an entire fan base like that.

In the SEC we would punch a baby in the face if it meant our team would win. (Let the SEC bashing begin!)

I think the luckiest guy in the world is going to be Elin's next husband!!! I bet he is going to be a HUGE fan of Tigers!

That guys only job is going to be making her happy and spending Tigers cash, which is something I think they will do very well.

Game day in Lincoln NE for a non Husker believer is VERY, VERY hostile territory indeed, make no mistake about it, hell anywhere in the State during CBF season is for that matter.

This is just a peace be with you and good luck in the Big-10 goodbye, story.
