Oh fuck me, I should've known that. You're not even the only Huskers fan I know (incidentally, not the only person I know from Nebraska). And that says a lot that I actually know the name of a college football team. That's how dumb I feel for not getting it. Especially since I knew MIT wasn't that red, but I thought maybe it just looked redder because of how it was cropped.
I was a tad surprised you didn't think Nebraska. And yeah, MIT's a dark red... more like maroon.
