Husker fans looking on the bright side

Friday's loss to the Iowa Hawkeyes might be disappointing to many Nebraska football fans, but Husker Nation is staying positive.

Nebraska's loss to Iowa was the first in 32 years, and fans are talking about Coach Bo Pelini.

At a live post–game conference, he cursed while arguing against an unsportsmanlike conduct call in the second half.

Some Husker fans say things don't look good for Bo.

"I think it's time for a change, for something new," Ben Veilleux of Hastings said.

In the six years that Pelini has taken the reigns at Nebraska, the team has had at least eight wins a season. On the flipside, it's also had at least four losses, leaving some fans divided.

"It's kind of a let down, I don't know the last time we lost three home games in a season," Fan Mark Danley said.

But like many of his players, many fans still stand behind Bo.

"We're expecting too much out of him so soon, just give him some time, we'll be good," Kelly Sheard said.

With a young team gaining experience, some think the future looks bright.

"I think next year's going to be good for us, and you know I'm really looking forward to seeing Bo again," Jordan Keefover from Beatrice said.
