When it comes to college football, Nebraska fans are right up there with some of the craziest. Any fan base that has people who would eat a bar of soap after a loss or show that they hate Texas this much cannot be underestimated in any capacity. There’s not much else to cheer for in Nebraska, so those midwesterners live and breathe the Huskers.
If living and breathing Huskers means buying a set of season tickets just to catch one game, so be it. No, not Nebraska season tickets. We’re talking season tickets to another team’s games just to make sure you’re in attendance when they face the Huskers. According to the Journal Sentinel via Fanattic Network, that’s exactly what Nebraska fan Beau Baumert did to score himself a ticket to this weekend’s game.
With No. 8 Nebraska traveling to No. 7 Wisconsin on Saturday, tickets are already going for a pretty penny on the secondary market. For the economical cost of $300, Baumert became a proud Wisconsin season ticket holder. He can now attend Saturday’s game and cheer for his Huskers and turn around and sell the remainder of the Wisconsin tickets for around face value.
“When my tickets arrived everyone laughed,” Baumert said. “Everyone outside Nebraska calls us crazy. Actually, there are way more diehard fans out there than me.”
Insane fan who will do anything to watch his team play or ticket hawking genius? Truthfully, I’d call it a little bit of both.Google+
