Well, we did it. We made it to game day.
The day that we never thought would get here after nearly ten long and lonely months has finally arrived.
A little later today, 2018’s best 4 – 8 team will be taking the field to kickoff their 2019 campaign against South Alabama.
It’s not the Alabama any of us want but it’s a start. If the Huskers can get the ball rolling and knock off the South Alabama Jaguars tomorrow (and let’s face it, it’s not much of an if), that will be a good first step on a journey towards a bigger goal that will eventually end with a face-off against Alabama. You know, the one that’s a dynasty reminiscent of Husker teams from the days of yore.
Since the whistle blew in Iowa City last November, all of us have endured zingers and insults from friends and foes aligned with other colleges.
“How can someone endure back-to-back 4 and 8 seasons?” they ask.
“How can we not?” we reply.
We’ve all been patiently waiting and biding our time as the light at the end of the tunnel grows bigger and brighter.
We’re going to get there eventually but until then, all we can do is sit back and enjoy the ride.
It’s about to become a lot of fun.
