Introducing 'A Sea of Red 2008' - Nebraska Football Annual


As its editor, I'm proud to introduce the inaugural issue of 'A Sea of Red 2008', a Nebraska yearbook that should be available now in stores throughout Nebraska and Western Iowa. I have not yet received a specific list from the publisher, but you should be able to find it now where you'd find other football pre-season magazines, i.e., convenience stores, gas stations, Barnes & Noble, Borders, yada yada.

To order online:  Purchase the book at Maple Street Press or at Huskerpedia. Should be up on Amazon in the near future, but ain't there yet apparently.

The purpose of 'A Sea of Red' is to provide Husker fans with a full pre-season guide to the 2008 Nebraska Cornhuskers. That includes a review of how we got to where we are, and a healthy dose of Husker history. Below is an overview of the contents.
