"Naturally, we’re very concerned about keeping our sellout streak going if we can," Osborne added. So, how much farther can Nebraska go with its stadium? Official capacity is 81,091, but average attendance in 2009 actually was 85,888. Would you expand by a few thousand seats? Do you take it to 90,000? 100,000? I definitely wouldn’t go beyond 90,000. Too risky. You saw the empty seats in 2007. The sellout streak is too important to the program. It’s sacred ground.

Nebraska considers expanding its stadium, but focuses on the wrong priorities. The Cornhuskers' streak of sellouts shouldn't be a point of pride; it's a mark of poor planning. (Hat tip: Dr. Saturday.) Go 'Dawgs!
