Nebraska joins the paint a hashtag-on-the-field craze.

What's the most shocking thing you could ever think of coming out of Nebraska?




Okay, what's the second most shocking thing you could ever think of coming out of Nebraska? Hint: it involves that internet-refining creature from the Twitterverse, the hashtag. Yes, Nebraska has gone and done joined the craze of painting a hashtag on the field by doing so on the turf of Memorial Stadium.


Nebraska athletic director Tom Osbourne's retirement announcement is only a couple of days old, and this happens. Coincidence? The Husker faithful will come face to face with the #Huskers on the field this Saturday as the team welcomes Wisconsin for its first visit as a fellow Big Ten Member.

There's no telling what the more tradition-minded Husker fans will take this. But if Alabama ever painted #ROLLTIDE on the field of Bryant-Denny Stadium, you'd be hearing the shouts of PAWLLLL! all the way to Mongolia.
