First I would like to thank Tom for all the years he has given to this state and to the University. Tom is one of those people who come along once in a lifetime,a man of integrety,wisdom and makes others lives better for having known him,or to have meant him in passing. Thanks coach for all the joys and yes even the heartbreaks over the years.
To BO and the huskers,I know this year did not work out like you or us fans had envisioned,but I want to thank you also for a very interesting year. I really enjoyed the wins this year and commend you all for the six game winning streak. You kept us glued to the TV sets when we couldn't be there in person. The losses tore at us,but I know you and the players feel worse than us fans. You guys had to play them all we had to do was root for you.
I believe that next year will be yours and our season to remember. I have been,as has my dad and brother fans of the Huskers through out the Devaney and Osborne years[my dad even before that. We will always remain Husker fans and support you and the coaches and the players always. So thank you BO for all that you do and are going to accomplish,hopefully you will be here as long as Tom was
