The future of Nebraska football.

So Omaha World-Herald’s Tom Shatel stops by Jeff Jamrog’s office at UNL…

“I want to show you something,” Jamrog said. “What do you think?”

He showed me a list of college football schools. Most of them were Bowl Championship Series members, some were from the Mountain West or Mid-American conferences. Some were highlighted. Some were crossed out.

Jamrog has been fishing for future NU nonconference opponents. This was his pool. I was somewhat stunned when he asked me to grab a fishing rod.

“Who would you like to see us play?” he asked.

Breakout the wish list, kiddies! What’s one of the first teams that Shatel suggests?

The obvious one is Miami. Yes, the power formerly known as the Hurricanes. The green and orange, in downtown Lincoln. Finally, after all these years.

“We’re working on it,” Jamrog said. “It’s a possibility.”

So. Freaking. A W E S O M E.

Why, do you ask? Oh, no particular reason. None at all.

Right now, Miami is rebuilding. Odds are good that if a deal is hammered-out, by the time they get to Lincoln they’ll be national contenders again. And hopefully, if Coach Pelini’s plans come together, so will Nebraska.
