Hello,

I'm a long time husker fan. I was born and raised here in Nebraska and my first husker memory was watching Nebraska play Oklahoma on Thanksgiving way, way back in the early sixties. You know I've tried to figure out who led me to the husker nation but I can't think of anyone. I grew up in a family that hated football, but tolerated me watching, as long as it wasn't too often. My earliest memory was flipping the channel around while my mother was cooking in the kitchen. My favorite husker memory was watching the Game of the Century. I'm a huge WCO fan and a huge Callahan and Pederson fan.

since '94

2) What/who led you to The Nation?
Family=Husker fans

3) Where are you from originally?
Ogallala, NE.

4) Where do you live now?
moved to Colorado in about 1989/90

5) Favorite Husker memory?
Beating Miami in the 1995 OB. or the end of the 1997 Mizzou game.

6) Worst Husker memory?
No facemask penalty against KSU in '98. getting beat is one thing, getting beat b/c the refs pitty the other team is another.
Off the field though, watching the waning moments of Sportscenter when they announced that Berringer had died.

7) Number of home games attended?
9? (one per years since '95)

8) Number of away games attended?
4 (all vs CU)

9) Favorite Husker memorabilia/apparel?
?? I have a few things but nothing i'd really call a "favorite". though i do have a somewhat odd item- I was hiking in Colorado and found a rock shaped like the state of Nebraska (how could i resist picking that up). It was on a 14er called Mt. Lincoln no less. A few coats of red spray paint and it fit right in with the rest of the stuff.

10) Favorite place to watch a Husker game? (section in Memorial, bar, friends house etc.)
My once-a-year Husker tix are in section 39. There are better seats in the stadium but i've only watched a game from there. (aside from TV of course)

11) Favorite all time player?
Tommie Frazier.

12) WCO or Option?
Whatever will get to the end zone.

13) Stevie Pederson or Billy Byrne?
Pederson. $ Bill killed the macho, jersey-wearing Herbie after 1995 and replaced it with a pansy looking hick of a mascot and I've never been able to forgive him.

14) Lil Red or Herbie Husker?
Herbie- with a large needle for Lil Red.

15) Favorite Husker play?
same as JR5: Option playaction pass. the way Frazier often ran it: to perfection.

none.

1) How long have you been a member of Husker Nation?

Started watching in '94, but I was pretty much destined to be a Husker fan since birth since my whole family is from Nebraska.

2) What/who led you to The Nation?

Grandfather and dad. My grandpa had a partial scholarship to play for Nebraska in the late forties/early fifties but chose to play in junior college.

3) Where are you from originally?

Geneva, FL

4) Where do you live now?

Geneva, FL

5) Favorite Husker memory?

Beating the crap out of Florida and silencing all the smug bastards that talk trash down here.

6) Worst Husker memory?

Texas in 2002 when Jamaal threw the interception at the end of the game. Heartbreaking.

7) Number of home games attended?

None, but most likely finally going to one this year.

8) Number of away games attended?

None. I was hoping they would've beat CU and made the Champs Sports Bowl in Orlando.

9) Favorite Husker memorabilia/apparel?

Had a Nebraska teddy bear when I was little, but I have too much merchandise to pick a favorite.

10) Favorite place to watch a Husker game? (section in Memorial, bar, friends house etc.)

My house or down at my grandpa's house since he has Direct TV.

11) Favorite all time player?

Tough one. Tossup between Frazier, Wistrom, and Green. In all honesty, though, it was Warrick Dunn when he played at FSU. He was my idol.

12) WCO or Option?

Option in the glory days until we couldn't recruit the talent to run it. The WCO is getting us some good recruits, we'll see how it pans out in the next few years. If all goes as I think it will, it'll be the best move we could've made.

13) Stevie Pederson or Billy Byrne?

Stevie P. has done A LOT for this program in his short time and recruited some of our best talent in the early-mid 90s. Plus he had the balls to make a change when we were in dire need.

14) Lil Red or Herbie Husker?

Old Herbie. Lil Red is just freaky.

15) Favorite Husker play?

Tie...Frazier's 75 yard run, Rucker's block against K-State and the OU trick pass. Or the time that KU tried it on us and we brought them down for a 20 yard loss. That was classic.

16) Favorite game-day beverage?

Dos Equis, Killian's, Amber Bock...any lager. Of course I'm not of legal age yet... <_<

1) How long a member of Husker Nation?
About 50 yrs.

2) What / who led you ?
My Dad and I would listen to NU football on the radio. I grew up in Lincoln and NU was the only team I followed.

3) Where from originally?
Lincoln

4) Where live now?
Bourbonnais, IL.

5) Favorite Nebr memory?
1959 when NU upset OU after than had gone upbeaten in the Big 8 for 15 yrs! (No one can imagine such dominance in football in the 1990's and 2000's). I was in the knot-hole section on the south endzone (Boy Scouts - 50 cents). My first NU game ever. Stadium was only about half-full at start of the game, but I yelled my heard out anyway. By half-time the stadium was full and the crowd was rocking. Final score NU 25 - OU 21. Goalposts torn down at end of game and carried down O Street. Will never forget it. I believe that game was the one that "lit the fire" and led to Bob Devaney and Tom Osborne and eventual National Championships.

6) Worst NU memory?
Losing to Miami in 1983 Orange Bowl. Second worst - listening on the radio to NU lose to CU in the 1950's and NEVER MAKING A FIRST DOWN FOR THE WHOLE GAME!!! Makes you appreciate the good times!

7) No of home games attended?
Approx 25.

8) No of away games attended?
6

9) Favorite memorabilia?
My big red hat which was stolen at KU.

10) Favorite place to watch NU football?
Memorial stadium. Everywhere else is a distant second.

11) Favorite all-time player?
Tommy Frazier.

12) WCO or option?
What ever moves the ball down the field and results in a victory. Devaney had passing teams that won the Natl Champion Title, TO had running teams that won.

13) Steve or Bill?
The verdict is still out as far as I'm concerned. The thing to remember is that people come and go, but NU lives on in the hearts and minds of the fans.

14) Lil Red or Herbie Husker?
I prefer Herbie.

15) Favorite Husker play?
The Fumbleruskie.

16) Favorite game day drink.
Anything to keep me warm when the December winds are blowing in Memorial Stadium.

17) How did I find HuskerBoard?
Comments from HuskerPedia caused me to search the internet for a better site.

When the side judge official turned to Coach Osborne and congratulated him with over a minute left in the game. The smile that came over his face at that moment as he thanked him will stay with me forever!

I have always been a part of Husker Nation. You see Husker Nation is not just a web site, it is a family of die-hard Husker fans. I was born and raised in Falls City, NE. My first memory of the Huskers was in the early 80's when the BIG RED played Clemson. The first team I remember was the Mike Rozier team that should have won the National Championship. I am an old-style Husker fan...our rival is, and always will be Oklahoma. I know we had a crappy year last year, but when Oklahoma got beat up in the national Championship game last year, order was restored. Some of my favorite moments as a husker fan. Listening to the Huskers on radio with Kent Pavelka and his cry of, "TOUCHDOWN, TOUCHDOWN, TOUCHDOWN." Going to Notre Dame, and seeing the Huskers beat the Irish in OT (By the way, GREAT Turnout!!!) Beating the crap out of Peyton Manning, and giving Tom a National Championship for his last victory. Spending a Saturday in the third largest city in Nebraska, and watching the boys play. Meeting other Husker fans.

There are a few Moments I would like to forget. The 7-8 consecutive bowl losses in the 80's/90's. I tend to remember a game in Lincoln against Washington...we were winning (I believe winning going into the 4th quarter.) and we lost. That was my first game in Lincoln. I was at the Orange Bowl when Miami shut out the Huskers 22-0, and I was also at the Citrus Bowl when Georgia Tech beat the Huskers. I was not real happy when we were taken out to the woodshed by Colorado...that was the beginning of the end...downhill from there.

My favorite player(s) Mike Rozier, Tommie Frazier, Corey S. A. Green (I happened to have the chance to shake hands with A. Green...he was back on campus getting ready to get his degree.) T. Rathman, G.Wistrom, D. Brinson, D. Erstad...and all of the walk-ons who simply just wanted to be Huskers.

My favorite play: Not sure what it is called, but it is when the QB takes the ball, runs behind the O-Line towards the sideline...fakes the hand-off to the F-Back, and then drops back 3-5 steps and passes the ball. No one ever figured that one out.

That is it for now...I hope to post more later.

(it must be a sign, hahaha - Jeopardy tonight (9/12) has a catagory related to NEBRASKA CORNHUSKERS. :thumbs
(those poor kids don't know a darn thing though........ ugh)



1) How long have you been a member of Husker Nation? Since before I really knew about the Huskers. As a kid, I remember this team in red and white playing in some bowl game. It was probably the Huskers in the mid-90s, but I don't know which. So, that image of them was always there. But I began to seriously follow them 2 years ago, in Frank Solich's last season. What an interesting start to my fan history...


2) What/who led you to The Nation? The memories from when I was younger, combined with my unusual affinity for the color red. But as I got more and more interested in Nebraska, I found what I liked most - tradition, respect, values, etc. That was the thing that kept me being a fan. That is why I like college football more than proffesional... money isn't as big a factor, at least.... well... you know. Money is a factor, though, as we know... But yeah, tradition, respect, and then the fan attitude. That sort of profound loyalty, and celebration. Every game at memorial stadium is like a grand festival, you know? I really hope I get to see one in person some day...


3) Where are you from originally? Somewhere in New York

4) Where do you live now? Somewhere in New York

5) Favorite Husker memory? I don't have many memories. Getting to see them live is a lot for me, as I rarely get to see them on TV, for various reasons. I like listening to them on the radio, over the internet - I get to hear all the hometown commercials on Pinnacle Sports Network, and the 4 hours of pregame, and the post game... I will always remember that.

6) Worst Husker memory? I don't know enough to really state my worst.

7) Number of home games attended? none

8) Number of away games attended? none

9) Favorite Husker memorabilia/apparel? My hat - I got the "Corn" winter hat over the internet, but it's too small for my head, so I can't wear it. But I wear my awesome Husker "baseball cap". That is my most prized apperel...

10) Favorite place to watch a Husker game? Whenever I can, wherever I can.

11) Favorite all time player? not sure.

12) WCO or Option? I respect the WCO, but I will always be an option fan.

13) Stevie Pederson or Billy Byrne? DOn't know enough about BB. But... SP seems to at least have the right idea..... but I am not sure...

14) Lil Red or Herbie Husker? I like both. But I do like the new Herbie.... He looks a little more kickass, so to say.

15) Favorite Husker play? Any run where there is either excellent blocking or several tackles broken. Or both..... :thumbs

16) Favorite game-day beverage? I like Sobe Energy, but maybe I'm getting into Arizona Green Tea + Pommegranite or whatever. It's RED! I don't like much else. Unless maybe Ginger Ale. Or water.

17) How did you find HuskerBoard? Searches
