Not the victory but the action
The following inscriptions were written by former UNL philosophy professor
Hartley Burr Alexander and adorn the four corners of Memorial Stadium:

"In Commendation of the men of Nebraska who served and fell in the Nations Wars"
"Not the Victory but the action: Not the goal but the game: In the deed the glory."
"Courage; Generosity; Fairness; Honor; In these are the true awards of manly sport."
"Their Lives they held their countrys trust; They kept its faith; They died its heroes."

Dear Lord
in the battles as we go through life;
We ask for a field that's fair.
A chance that's equal to all in the strife;
The courage to do it or dare.
If we should win, let it be by the code;
With our faith and honor held high.
If we should lose, let us stand by the rules;
And cheer as the winners go by.

Day by day we get better and better;
A team that can't be beat, won't be beat.
