Husker Nation, you may notice something other than an ear of corn pop up on Twitter when you use a certain hashtag. 

Many NU sports fans use #GBR to mean Go Big Red. But right now, during the Olympics, #GBR generates a small British flag to indicate Great Britain. In fact, if you scroll through past posts, you'll find that they too show the Union Jack.

Husker fans have noticed the change. 

It happened during the last Olympic Games too, but fans should be glad to hear, it was only temporary.
