Corn Flakes: What Is A True Husker Fan?

New, 144 comments

I'd really like an answer or a comment on the question in the headline of this article. That and some news you need to know!

Husker fan Sombrero Dennis Hubbard

I first remember the concept of a "true Husker fan" occurring in 2007 when the Nebraska fan base was tearing itself apart over Bill Callahan's coaching or lack thereof. It's a phrase that I honestly hate, but I'm not going to go into a whole lot right now.

What I would like to know from all of you is your definition of a "true Husker fan"?

You can be snarky with your answer, you can be serious, but I would appreciate if you guys could take some time and answer the question. If you're lucky, I may let you in on what I'm doing at a later time.

Thank you very much.

Nebraska AD clarifies 'I had to evaluate where Iowa was' comment | The Gazette

"We weren’t playing for a conference championship and neither was Iowa. I have great respect for Iowa. It’s a great institution and a wonderful football program. But in the final analysis, their record was where it was and ours was where it was. Fair enough?"

POOP ON IOWA.

I realize Steel Balls Shawn has to work with those people and the public sector is full of consensus-building candy asses, but COME ON SHAWN, STICK A KNIFE IN THEIR SIDES WHEN YOU HAVE THE CHANCE!

Any more of this and we're gonna have to re-think his nickname.

For Big Ten, expansion does not appear on horizon

The Big Ten not too long ago was one of the key players in the waves of expansion that reshaped the college landscape in recent years, adding Nebraska and then Rutgers and Maryland. But don't expect the conference to grow from 14 anytime soon.

Two players arrested. The comments are beautiful and have become their own universe unto themselves.

There might be a time in human history in which the comments sections on web sites become sentient beings. I think this one might be close. (Keep in mind, it might be the dumbest, angriest being in the history of the universe, but still be sentient.)

NOLAND, MARY ANNE - Obituaries & In Memoriam - Richmond, Va., News, Entertainment, Events, Food, Dining, Sports, Business and Commentary

Faced with the prospect of voting for either Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton, Mary Anne Noland of Richmond chose, instead, to pass into the eternal love of God on Sunday, May 15, 2016, at the age of 68.

While I was in Lincoln for the spring game, my sister Mary was insistent that I write my own obituary. "It would take the pressure off my family", was her rather adamant suggestion.

Perhaps since it's the off-season, I will take a shot at writing my own obituary. You guys can help me out. It might be fun. Hell, given the past year, it might even be useful.
