It all goes back to the old line: Nebraska has it's good fans and bad fans. Nebraska's bad fans are as bad as everybody else's. But painting all Husker fans with the broad brush of bad --- or good, for that matter --- simply isn't accurate. In other topics that the Oklahoma polled players on:
"Nebraska fans always cheer you on, even though they want you to lose."
Herbie Husker and 'Lil Red didn't fare so well, tying with Cy the Cyclone for worst mascot. (Although the poll didn't distinguish between the two, I'd bet that poster child for waste of natural resources, 'Lil Red probably was the problem.) Strangely, 10% voted Herbie and Red best mascot.
Bo Pelini tied with Art Briles for third at 13% of the coach players would like to play for. Gary Pinkel, Dan Hawkins, and Mike Sherman failed to get a single vote. Bob Stoops ran away with this one with 39%; Mack Brown received 17% of the vote.
Nebraska's Memorial Stadium tied for second with Texas A&M for best stadium, trailing Texas' Royal Stadium. Iowa State's Jack Trice Stadium was voted the worst stadium, with Missouri's Faurot Field tying Baylor for second worst.
