Yep, good to go! Was a fun little wager, makes the sport even more exciting

I won't make it a very regular habit but I will definitely shoot you a message if I get another itch.  My avatar space will be technically open starting groundhogs day so we can make it creative

OK, now I have to dig it up. It's somewhere in the B1G wrestling stats or schedule or some darn thing. But they reference the teams as:

  • NU = Northwestern University (Which I am not 100% behind, I have always used NW - which seems clearer)
  • NEB = University of Nebraska (Which I don't dislike, it eliminates obvious misreads)

UN may be what is on the helmet, and that does carry some merit... because, helmet. But a higher source of reference might be a better choice.

Its NU on the helmet and on alot of appearl. If you are talking about the University itself its UNL. Never anything associated with UN? Wtf is UN?

I just got done playing bridge with Bob Devaney.  We were playing Elvis and Andy Kaufman.  I asked Bob and he said U(niversity of) N(ebraska).  Just a heads up, that Andy Kaufman cheats.
 

Paging Jimmy Cinnabon...

Wyoming is UW (pronounced U-dub by students), which is kind of weird because Wisconsin (also UW) students say "U-dub", too.

I'm with you. If it wasn't for the donkey on the Wyoming helmet, it'd be tough to tell them apart.

U-dub is the University of Washington.

Trying to add a little levity to what reminded me of the arguments my kids had when they were 5 or 6 years old.

 Also, just a little test.  I've always said a sense of humor is a sign of intelligence.  Congratulations, you passed.  Someone else somehow thought I was serious I guess.  How could any (NU/UN?) fan miss the Bob Devaney reference?
