There tends to be a strong sense of optimism and excitement at the start of any academic year. I notice it year after year, but here we are just three days into this year I’m noticing something a little different. That optimism is amplified. With all honesty, I think it has something to do with joining the Big Ten Conference. After all, it’s something we’ve been talking about for more than a year now.
As a football fan who is both a product of a Big Ten school (Michigan State) and a former faculty member at Iowa, I know excitement also is building about Nebraska’s upcoming season.
Whether we’re talking about academics or football I hope this enthusiasm carries through the whole year. And despite my past allegiances, I’m happy to say, “Go B1G Red!”
