End Result: Nebraska Wins
By Jason Arens, Hub Sports Writer
I’ve got a buddy from Nebraska who isn’t a Husker fan. Whenever Big Red suffered a loss, he’d get frustrated when I’d try to explain to him what exactly went wrong in the game, and how Nebraska would’ve won if this just had happened.
“I don’t care,” he’d say. “They lost!”
I think that’s how the entire Nebraska fan base would’ve felt like had Northwestern pulled it out. Back-to-back losses to the Wildcats would’ve stung. There would be no excuses of the “should’ve” and “could’ve”. There would only be “didn’t.”
