    The chair is not a real trophy. It is forced. Not as forced as the bell, but neither belongs. Why do we have to pretend there is some great rivalry with Nebby? Doing so dilutes the actual rivalries.

    I think all the teams in the big are our rivals. Nebby is a good one as we have a pretty even record against them. Michigan vs Minnesota is pretty one sided. Weird that Penn St has a trophy and this one is not allowed. I thought the chair was on the field a few times over it's short history.

    Maybe it's more that Nebraska doesn't care about it.....

    Nebraska cares about it as much as we do. Their fans also donate to the charities

    Sorry. I didn't mean the fans. I meant the university. I like the Nebraska fans and think that it's always a big game when we play the team.

    Much better sharing a stadium with them t than most of the Wisconsin and Iowa fans that I have met.

    I like the Trophy, but no way will Nebraska officially recognize it as long as Feaux Pelini is on it. If they replaced Feaux with Herbie, it might have a chance.

    They can take Fraud Pellini off and just put Herbie and Goldy on it. The donation thing is what now makes this a special trophy to me. I have a lot of respect for Nebraska and there fans. This is more of a fun rivalry than dislike. Nebraska fans are knowledgeable about football and more fun to talk football with. This game for them losing Martinez was always going to make this a tough game. Even if it remains unoficial. This game is now broken chair week with Nebraska.

    The history of Gopher Football includes pre-Big Ten Nebraska. The Michigan, Iowa, and Wisconsin rivalries are given, but this isn't a forced trophy game a la Penn State. This is one that honors tradition and respects the fans desires. It should happen, albeit with a better trophy perhaps.

    Prez Joan Gabel and Mark Coyle - it is time to recognize the organic rivalry trophy and the spirit of giving to worthy causes it represents.

    Even Rece Davis on College Gameday referred to the broken chair as "the best unsanctioned trophy in college football". It's time to make it legitimate!
