Corn Flakes: Preview Friday!

New, comments
Trevor Ruszkowksi-USA TODAY Spor

One of our community members, dkdevnet, did a nice fanpost entitled Perspective From Others yesterday. It did not receive any comments, and that makes me wonder if we have not done enough to promote the fanposts and fanshots here at CN.

Bottom line - any time you feel you've got something to share, give them a shot. We (the guys who run CN) need to do a better job of promoting these things (okay, mostly me).

There's a lot of great college football coming up this weekend!!!

Improving the Nebraska Game Day Experience | Feit Can Write

During his monthly radio show, Nebraska Athletic Director Shawn Eichorst implied that the athletic department is looking at ways to improve the in-game experience for Husker Football games at Memorial Stadium. Aside from this being an incredibly shrewd diversion*, it is a topic that many Husker fans have an opinion on. Including me.

"Me" is Dave Feit, who sometimes writes for, and has his own site as well.

Open Letter to Frustrated Nebraska Football Fans - Corn Nation

Some fans are frustrated over the state of Nebraska football. I can relate; ten years ago, I was in your shoes. Here's my advice: don't give up. Your fandom can easily outlast Bo Pelini, if that's your concern.

Then there's Mike's bit from yesterday..... if you want to comment about Bo Pelini, THAT IS YOUR PLACE TO DO IT.

Let's keep this thread for talking about the upcoming football games. I realize they don't involve Nebraska, but I love this game and there are sure to be plenty of surprises this weekend!!!!

Also, tonight at 7:00 PM, the Husker volleyball team will be in action in the first round of the NCAA tourney against Fairfield! The game will be at Devaney Center, and be broadcast within the state of Nebraska on NET!!!
