For those that haven't been paying attention to college football this year, or haven't put things together, over the weekend a really cool thing happened.
Nebraska played Texas for the Big 12 championship. A win for NU would mean a trip to a BCS bowl game, a HUGE step from the loosing season a couple of years ago. A loss would most likely mean a trip to the Holiday Bowl in San Diego.
This is where it gets interesting! Last winter Erik's marching band at Lincoln Southeast had a vote amongst the families. They take a MAJOR trip every other year, and the two options this year were Hawaii, or the Holiday Bowl. With problems in the economy a majority voted for the Holiday Bowl.
Today's Lincoln Journal-Star has an article today about the band members, and parents, who had a hard time deciding if they wanted NU to win or lose last Saturday. You can find the article here: http://journalstar.com/news/local/article_451c2fd8-e51c-11de-9585-001cc4c002e0.html
Fast forward to the end of the game, and NU lost because of a rule in the rule book that most didn't know existed, much less it being used. With the loss they will be going to the Holiday Bowl. I encourage everyone to watch the game, and the half time show. Watch for Lincoln Southeast, and watch for the bass drummer with the biggest bass drum from LSE, and then scream at the top of your lungs...."LOOK I KNOW SOMEONE ON TV!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
