As I write this from the comfort of my basement in Prairie Village, reeling from my lack of attendance to undoubtedly the biggest KU football victory in my lifetime, I can't begin to say how much this makes my day. What a great day for the program! Due to some rather unfortunate circumstances, I was not able to attend the game. However, as the game went on, and I listened to Bob and Max on 980 KMBZ...I realized how lucky I was indeed. Listening to Max Faulkenstein call this game was almost as special as the victory itself. What better way to send him out than ending "the streak" against The Huskers? Looking back at all of the games this guy has seen and called in his 60 year career at Kansas, and listening to the emotion in his voice was almost as good as being at Memorial Stadium today. Thanks Max for making it a great day to be a Jayhawk.
Not only did we beat Nebraska..we dismantled them on all fronts. 40-15. Defensively this team is ridiculous. Congrats to Nick Reid and his crew.
