Sights, sounds and other stuff

Husker fans watching Saturday night’s Nebraska-Miami game on the tube saw something pretty special, but for those of us who were there, it’s going to be a game we’ll all remember for the rest of our lives.
I’ve seen lots of games in that stadium, but never one like that.
It was a Saturday night special.
Miami, forever the bad boys of college football, certainly lived up to their reputation as we all know. By now that’s been well-documented.
But I can’t help but wonder if it’s a self-fulfilling prophecy. Their reputation precedes them, so why is anyone surprised when fights and/or skirmishes break out?
