football memories

Last Friday, I stumbled across the 4th quarter of the 2001 Nebraska-Oklahoma game on ESPN Classic. I tuned in just in time to see this:

The commentators spent a lot of time talking about Eric Crouch's Heisman bid. My mom and I watched the Heisman presentation from a surgical waiting room in an Omaha hospital. My aunt, a longtime diabetic, was finally getting an much anticipated kidney transplant.

Watching this game reminded me how much I used to love Husker football. Don't get me wrong, I'm still a fan, but I'm not nearly as passionate about it as I was a few years ago.

We, of course, got trounced by Oklahoma on Saturday.
