Corn Flakes: Which Wave Came First: The Wheat or the Sea?

So this question comes from a "discussion" I had with a KSU "fan" at last years KSU/NU game. To be fair she may have been drunk, and she was kinda an idiot. I blame the idiot part on watching a Ron Prince coached team for several years. Anyway after (another) Nebraska TD we started "Waving the Sea of Red" and the woman claimed that we were "Waving the Wheat" and that we stole it from Kansas. I told her NU would never steal anything from KU, but I wasn't sure what came first. They are similar. So anyone know the story?


Nebraska football fans put the wave in the "Sea of Red" swaying their arms back and forth while the Nebraska Marching Band plays "There Is No Place Like Nebraska."

After every KU touchdown, Jayhawk Fans "Wave the Wheat", a long-standing tradition at games.

Post what you know in the comments section.

What will happen: The Nebraska defense will be the Nebraska defense again, but the Nebraska offense will be the Nebraska offense again. KU will be held to under 50 yards rushing, but Reesing will come up with an ultra-efficient game and won’t make the mistakes that Oklahoma’s Landry Jones made last week on the way to a tough win.

The Wiz of Odds: Attempted Robbery Victim: Let Players Stay on Team

"I think they should still be able to play football, regardless. Tennessee is my place. It's my football team," Corey B. Zickefoose, 20, told WATE-TV in Knoxville. "Even after they put a gun in your face, you say let them play football?" reporter Harlow Sumerford asked. "Yeah, it's Tennessee. That's the way it is sometimes," Zickefoose said.

Well I think Lane could use this in recruiting, come to Tennessee where you can rob our fans and they still love you.
