  1. The Sock Puppet Rides!

    Go big red and thanks puppet! Thanks to everyone else ITT for many laughs.
  2. The Sock Puppet Rides!

    Just had to be a part of this thread - best ever! And to the all mighty Sock Puppet - a little Christmas gift. Enjoy. GBR Note - Having problems importing a graphic... will have to try this tonight when I am home.
  3. ATH Coltin Gerhart [Arizona State - Signed LOI]

    Don't have a subscription, any way someone could summarize? Thanks! He asked that interview be done by texting. Said he had a great time and he would have to discuss with his parents. It was his first official visit. Very positive but nothing earth shattering divulged.
  4. I made sure to share the history of our team driving to their first games (poor kids): Devaney, Osborne, Berringer so when they see the statues it is more meaningful. I tell them about the traditions of the balloons, the tunnel walk and how Nebraska fans NEVER leave early regardless of the weather (this worked out really well because they are afraid to ask to leave). Just like everyone mentioned - hit the north stadium area to see the trophies, weight room, waterfall. hit the east stadium entrance for more history. On the North side of the stadium is a track and next to it is a field that they allow kids to play in (I can't remember the name ) Usually there are games, balls to throw/kick and most important this is where you can pick up red balloons. Do this activity last so you don't have to carry the balloons for hours. I found the easiest way to get into the tunnel area is to go down to the field level from your seat and walk alongside the fence to the northwest corner (by the tunnel door) and underneath the stadium and you will see the red carpet. Get there early as there will be a line! Hopefully you'll see the players arriving at the north stadium doors and the band arriving about an hour before kickoff. No doubt they will have a blast. Enjoy and yes take lots of photos.
  5. Manti Te'o's dead girlfriend?

    Read the update on Deadspin this morning about the ESPN interview. They are following closely and noticed for some reason ESPN removed part of their original report early this morning... the part of the interview where Manti talked about meeting her the DAY of the championship game and how he still wasn't convinced this was a hoax until Wednesday of this week. SMH Still too many questions for me. I'm counting on Deadspin to keep digging at the truth. This ESPN interview was done under circumstances controlled by Manti's lawyers who sat in on it. No doubt they controlled the questions that were asked. The kids dad was upset that a local paper wrote a negative article after the NCG... wonder what he's thinking now? Wow. Just. Wow.
  6. Wow thanks for posting this. I am sitting in this section and didn't receive the notice. Can't wait! GBR
  7. I was at the Oklahoma game that was Tom's 250th win. After the game there were fireworks and a nice video tribute. They might do something like that. The guy deserves a send off but I agree he won't want to detract from the seniors. I also went to the Orange Bowl NC game that was Tom's last game as HC. We painted our rental cars with tempera paint and one of our slogans was "Tom's Last Dance - the Tennessee Waltz". It was hysterical as TN fans asked if they could have their pictures taken in front of our car. Man those teams were good.
  8. OT J.D. Hinnant [Cal Commit]

    Seriously injured on way to a team meal and in hospital. Lets send out some big red prayers to him. http://www.ocvarsity.com/sports/valley-34325-fountain-friday.html
  9. I'm reading that the tickets are now selling for $20. I bet by game day you can grab one for free... worth a try!!! Good luck.
  10. Blackshirts

    Well he gave them out tonight in the locker room. Saw photos on twitter - for real. Great game D!
  11. Can I bring a backpack into the stadium?

    Yes but when you go to the stadium you will have to stand in the line that searches all bags. I wouldn't bring a large one. I took nephews to two games this year and we had no problems.
  12. This dude just won't shut up. A NEW article with more quotes: "It's definitely going to be a priority," Gilbert said of delivering hits on Martinez. "I mean, let's face it, he's a soft kid. "When things don't go his way and when he fumbles a little bit, that comes with getting hit hard and getting hit hard the whole game. That's an element we're trying to bring to the D-line." "They'll be in their environment, but when your crowd starts booing you, what are you going to do? How are you going to respond? That's the kind of response we're going to find out from Taylor Martinez on Saturday." http://host.madison.com/sports/college/football/badgers-aim-to-rattle-soft-cornhuskers-qb-taylor-martinez/article_abc5446c-08d8-11e2-aa99-001a4bcf887a.html
  13. Please Help

    I agree - email Dr. Tom's office and I bet they surprise you. We have an employee that has fought stomach cancer and was forced into early retirement. We reached out and got game tickets and an autographed helmet. TO is a fine man and I'm sure his office handles these requests all the time. Be sure to let them know when he's leaving so they have a date to work with. You are a good man to do this for your colleague and friend. GBR and Roll Tide.
  14. Sat vs MSU Tailgate info needed

    Answering a year late just in case anyone needs help this year! Yes, this tailgate event is an 'invite only' deal sponsored by Husker Sports Marketing. I've been to it as my company is one of the corporate sponsors. It is a meal catered by Skeeters Barbeque. Drinks are non-alcoholic. Nice spread but not a party. Yes there are programs given out for free as well. The white tent is located on the east side of the Husker Pavilion field/track.
