Nebraska Alums

Screw the Rivalry,

We Support Penn State

No smack talk this year ... instead, the University of Nebraska Alumni Association tells TMZ it is organizing a pre-game campaign of support for those affected by the Penn State sex scandal.

A rep for the association tells TMZ, members plan to distribute hundreds of blue ribbons on Saturday before, during, and after the game in solidarity with Penn State and others affected by child abuse.

If students don't have access to a blue ribbon, Nebraska alums are asking all Huskers to wear any kind of blue whatsoever as a sign of support for their Penn State brethren.

So far, no word if Nebraska players also plan to wear some kind of blue.

Thank you Nebraska, for our victims and our community! Since this horrible incident everyone in our community has more or less been treated like we did something wrong all because of one "monster".

More proof that too many people in this country are devils advocate to everything.

Do you really think the problem is with Penn State? no. The problem is with a few people who happen to be formerly employed by their athletic department. There is no doubt penn state is a wonderful educational institution.

The actins and words from Nebraska are expressing their support to do the right thing.

It amazes me that there has been no offer to contribute the revenue generated from this game to a charity for victims such as these. If Penn State is as honorable as they suggest, if the Big Ten is as honorable and traditional as they suggest this gesture should be completed. Otherwise, they are placing their value in money over the disgusting acts that were allowed by Administrators that should have taken steps to report and stop this immediately.

The sad truth is this sort of crime goes on all the time all over the world,while some hide behind being a professional or in offices in which they can get people to do whatever to get keep or have jobs and chances.Nebraska has had it`s UNL sexual football team crimes also over the years as most all colleges have and being a brain drain state doesn`t help the sytem either.MURDER`s have taken place with frats and trilates killing those whom are not a nazis or SS or whatever mob they are pushing.Lincoln ahs the nazis rallys right at the state capital and anyone standing up to them will be faceing the army national guard with fully auto weapons trained just at them..been there done that as well as getting to the freedom of information act to defend one`s self at a cost of over 10 grand.Cornfeild murder INC is full of dead little girl witnesses for too many years known too many witnesses to count all dead at the mason broadcasters SS frat hands in high places
