09.29.2009 / Huskers Celebrate the 300th Consecutive Sellout. Posting By Greg Sharpe, Voice of the Huskers

It's been tough to concentrate the last couple of days after the heartbreaking loss to Virginia Tech. The Huskers were the better team in Blacksburg but couldn't close the deal and the Hokies made two plays late to win. That loss was one of the hardest to accept in recent memory for Cornhusker fans.

"The Huskers were the better team in Blacksburg but couldn't close the deal and the Hokies made two plays late to win."

This week the team returns home to face a Ragin Cajun bunch from Louisiana.  Most of the fanfare this week will be on the 300th consecutive sellout of Memorial Stadium.  What an amazing feat considering Notre Dame is next in line at around 220.  This streak speaks volumes to the loyalty of Nebraska fans to this program. 

Louisiana enters this game at 2-1 including a one point win over Kansas State two weeks ago.  Louisiana has some decent players but much like Florida Atlantic and Arkansas State this should be a game in which the Huskers have the clear talent advantage. 

My only concern will be about the emotional fuel tank for the Big Red.  It might be running a little low after the tough loss in Blacksburg. 

So Husker fans use this week to celebrate the past while trying to block out the memory of last Saturday.

We found a balloon in our yard that was popped the only thing I could make out on it was so I googled it and it brought me to this site. It was torn up and lying in our yard. How cool this is to see that it made it this far south of you guys. We live about 24 miles south of the Nebraska/Kansas border! What a great victory you guys had yesterday! Thanks Jayhawk Julie!
