So, most that have been around for a while know that it's pretty common fare for a few opposing fans, coaches or administrators to have gracious and complimentary words towards our fanbase after playing us. Personally, I always take great pride in hearing this, and my heart swells with a bit of pride seeing how consistent of a trend it is.

That in mind, I thought it would be nice to have a one-stop thread to document and discuss such things. I can think of several instances where I've wanted to recall something someone from an opposing school said about us but was unable to track it down, so at the very least this will be a nice resource for me to use personally. Hopefully it can be more than that, though.

That being said:

Michigan State - 11/5/11

"Lifelong Spartan: NU Has Nation's Best Fans"

"Even "the hot dog guy comes with his cannon" and he "can tell my son's down because Michigan State is losing," so he says: 'Hey, why don't you come and help me shoot hot dogs?' And at one point, the governor of Nebraska comes over and says: 'Hey, you know you guys have a great team and we had a good game, and he literally sat there for 20 minutes and made my wife and son practically want to move to Nebraska. And I just want to say I don't have any clue if Nebraska is going to win the Big Ten championship, but I've been around this for 40 years, and you've got - it's not even close - the best fans in the country, let alone the Big Ten, and there isn't even a second. And I want you to know I came home and said all that on my radio show around the state of Michigan, and I told them flat out, you know, you can argue football all you want, but you can't argue class of the folks in Nebraska, and everyone of us has a long way to go and a lot to learn. You have so much to be proud of. I just want to tell you it was an incredible experience."



Washington - 9/12/11

"Huskies Will Learn No Place Like Nebraska"

"“Tremendous environment,” said Huskies coach Steve Sarkisian Monday. “Great fans. It’s what college football should be.”

That is not hyperbole. Unlike the over-amped frat boys in Eugene, or the no-lifes in the Southeastern Conference or the who-cares in Los Angeles, the Huskers crowd is so into the whole college-football culture that they actually care about the opponents and their traveling fans.

Ask anyone who traveled to Lincoln the last time the Huskies played there, in 1998. Like me. It was like being at an all-day Nordstrom sales training session. Everyone was polite, courteous, shook hands firmly and made eye contact directly, seemed interested in your welfare and offered to do most anything to help your visit. By the time I left, I was hoping to be adopted. I guarantee I wasn’t the only Seattle visitor so affected."




Ohio State - 10/10/11

"Nebraska fans" thread at buckeyeplanet.com

I would be remiss if I didn't comment on how well the Nebraska fans treated the Buckeye visitors in Lincoln over the weekend. Perhaps this has been mentioned in the game thread which I haven't read yet, but even so, it deserves its own thread, at least temporarily.

My buddy and I got to Lincoln around 9 am on Saturday morning. We spent a lot of time walking around the stadium area, tailgating with some Nebraska fans, and talking to many of them after the game was over.

The number of times we heard any Buckeye fans being treated rudely by any Huskers: zero.

The number of times that we heard "Welcome to Lincoln", "We're glad you're here", "How do you like Lincoln"", "Good luck today", and simliar comments: I can't give a good estimate, and it's not because I was drinking, it's because the number was an amazingly high one.

.....


I realize that I can't convince everybody how they should treat visitors to Columbus. But how opposing fan bases are treated does make a difference in how a University and a community are perceived. If somebody wants to be rude to a Wisconsin fan because of how they were treated in Madison, I can understand that sentiment.

But when the folks from Nebraska make the visit to the Horseshoe next year, please try to remember to treat them as you would like to be treated; because that's what they do extremely well, and that's what they deserve in return.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


I too went to the game on Saturday. In all seriousness, what is wrong with you Huskers? You could not have been any nicer or accomodating to us. My friends and I were aware of your reputation for hospitality but what we experienced was above and beyond. There are so many examples that I could give but the best is this:

The minute we stepped into the stadium an attendant came up to us and asked us if we needed help finding our seats. We knew where we were going but accepted his offer anyway. We came in at the opposite corner of the stadium from the location of our seats but instead of walking us all the way around the stadium he takes us down to the field in a staff elevator and walked us across the field to our section. While we were down on the field he asked us if we wanted to hang out for awhile. To which we replied of course. He left us on the field unattended for probably 15 minutes before he came back to take us to our seats. Mind you we aren't a bunch of 80 year olds with walkers that need assistance, we are all in our early 30s and were obviously lit up from all the free drinks Nebraska fans had been feeding us. And this guy just let us hang out on the field like we were VIPs.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I've come to the conclusion that Nebraska simply has the best fans in college football, bar none. Their hospitality and general friendliness is other worldly. I highly recommend seeing a game there and getting there PLENTY early (at least a day early) to enjoy festivities in the Haymarket, tailgating, and talking football with the locals (who really know their [Mark May]).




Wyoming - 8/31/13

"Nebraska fans" thread at wyonation.com

I am back from my trip in Lincoln and what a trip it was! The game was phenomenal and to see the Pokes compete like that was impressive. I just wanted to say something to the Nebraska fans that are still coming here. Thank you! I have never met friendlier people in my life than I did in Lincoln. The Big Red faithful are as genuine as they come. On Friday night i took some of the husker fans suggestions and wore gold downtown, and I am glad I did. A number of Husker fans made it a priority to come shake my hand and welcome me to Nebraska, ask me if I needed any suggestions for downtown, asked me about our team, and I got numerous invites to their tailgates for Saturday. On Saturday it was much of the same, we had some family friends who are Nebraska die hards so we went to their tailgate for pregame but a buddy of mine and I decided to check out the tailgate lot and look at some of the set ups they had, while we were walking around a number of groups came up and shook our hands, welcomed us to Lincoln, thanked us for coming, and offered us food and drinks. After the game, it was much of the same. Nebraska fans shook our hands, talked about the game, and thanked us for coming.

I have been to other stadiums before and have never experienced such a kind fan base. It was an experience I will never forget and Memorial Stadium is as gorgeous of a stadium as there is to take in a football game. To be honest, Wyoming fans could learn a thing or too from Nebraska fans. I am not saying Pokes fans are rude, because in general they're not. But Nebraska fans make it a priority to make sure you are welcomed and having a great time. So to Husker nation thank you for making my experience that much better and I will be back when the Pokes come back down to Lincoln in a couple years. I will be cheering you guys on the rest of the season.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I too had an incredible experience.....from the time we arrived to minute we left Lincoln we were treated to true "Huskers Hospitality"! I was not able to get tickets in the Wyo section and was surrounded by a sea of red at the game but was treated with respect as I cheered for the Pokes and was showered with compliments about the way the Cowboys performed...... All were very impressed with Smith and all the Pokes. As we were walking out, there was a large group of Huskers fans that were on the stairs above where the dejected Cowboys were filing into the locker room giving them one final ovation......Class act Lincoln! Go Big Red!

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I agree. So many people came up to me to say "Welcome to Lincoln" and "Enjoy your stay". Unreal. Even after the game people coming up to say how amazing #16 was and good luck etc,. What a great trip. I have watched the Pokes in many out of conference games, Texas, Tennessee twice, Ole Miss, Florida, Bowling Green,and Nebraska wins the nicest fan award.




Southern Miss - 9/7/13

Southern Miss fan here,

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the great fans and people of Nebraska. The long drive to Lincoln was well worth it. Although I wish the outcome had been a little closer, everything I had been told about the way that you welcome and treat opposing fans was completly true. My family and I have never felt more at home and welcomed. Everyone was so nice and thanked us for coming, invited us to tailgate and helpful in getting us where we needed to be. We even went to the bookstore and bought six "Huskers" shirts for our family, including my daughters, who said they will wear them on USM campus Monday. I hope that if you ever come to Hattiesburg someday we can return the same hospitality that you showed us. Oh, and Misty's was a great place to eat, so thanks for the advice. The Yeates Family or Canton, Ms.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I don't know Ron but I want to echo what he said.
My son is a student trainer at sm and travels to many of the away games. For the past year all he can talk about is how well they were treated by the same group of kids from your school and he could not get over the folks sitting in the end zones clapping even for them as they removed equipment from the field.
I had to experience this myself so the wife and I made that long drive, stopping in Branson for a few days. As we crossed the state line at Neb City a pickup with a huskers plate on the front passed us and gave us a wave and thumbs up. When we arrived the holiday inn near the stadium, a car window rolls down and a guy asked if we had a good trip up. The man checking in next to us extended a hand and said Welcome to Nebraska.
The older guys who work the gates are absolutely the best.
Ive hurt some feelings with the walmart sec fans here at home telling them they could all take some lessons from Nebraska fans.




UCLA - 9/14/13

In regards to the #36 helmet decals worn honoring UCLA's Nick Pasquale:

Been visiting nebraska boards for quite a while and know a few huskers personally. They have by far been the most classy and humble fanbase I have known as a college sports fan. It comes to me as no surprise they would do something like this. They are a good bunch and I will always wish em well.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

http://huskernsider....-touch-of-class


"First of all I want to start by saying a very heartfelt thanks to the Athletic Director Shawn Eichorst, Head Coach Bo Pelini, to the Husker Nation, their fans, their students and their players for the compassion they showed us this week,” UCLA Coach Jim Mora said in his opening statement of Saturday’s postgame press conference. “I thought it was an incredible gesture they made here, and I think it kind of shows the class here at Nebraska. The fact that they would put a No. 36 decal (Pasquale’s number) on their helmets, and they would have a moment of silence, and their student section cheered us when we took the field and encouraged us on … you just don’t find that at many places. It is just a true testament to the people here at Nebraska and how much they care about football. We are very, very appreciative about that.”


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


I know that football is very dear to your heart and you support your program whole-heartedly. I just want to say from the Bruin Nation how impressed I was with your program and your class. It was incredible loss of life that the UCLA Bruins experienced last week, and I am forever grateful and humbled by your generous gestures to honor Nick Pasquale both on your helmets and with the balloon release at your stadium. Thank you so much for this special remembrance at your home stadium. You give the true meaning of sport to your program. I will forever regard the Husker Nation as a class act and a hard-nose football program that makes the right choices and stands for the right things. Thank you again, Brooke Sachs, UCLA Alum


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


I would like to pass on to all your students and alumni that this was truly a class act which lately hasn’t been seen in college sports for a while. Your program truly shows what a top-notch, classy and outstanding program you have. Sports is an important part to many people’s life, but this shows it is more than sports. I write this with the intent it gets passed on to your readers. William Jones, California


---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Thank you so much for the actions of your student body, your players, and your athletic department. The compassion that you displayed to UCLA was very much appreciated. What was shown on TV was very moving and really showed the class of Husker Nation. Thanks for all that you did and for being such gracious hosts. Here’s hoping that Husker football goes undefeated the rest of the way. I am still very touched by the actions of the NU Athletic Department. Ernest Hui, UCLA Class of 1998, Mountain View, California



SDSU - 9/21/13

Good morning Husker Nation!

I just wanted to thank you for a great experience and renewing my faith as a Husker fan. It was arguably one of the very worst weeks in Husker Football recent history with all that happened. Things could have taken a lot of different paths in how fans reacted. The result was straight class from pregame to postgame. Not sure why I even thought anything else would come from the best fans in College Football. When Pellini walked off the field at the end was the best part. The Husker fans stayed long after the game was over to salute their team and their coach as they left the field. Great stuff.

As a lifelong Husker fan it was really fantastic to experience what the gameday experience is like for fans of the other team. I live in Brookings and have also been a lifelong Jackrabbit fan. Who knew that these worlds would ever collide. I was thanked by dozens of people after the game for making the trip and complimented on the skill and sportsmanship of the Jacks. Since returning home I have heard from numerous friends who know I'm a Husker fan about how great their experience was as well.

There are plenty of Husker haters out there, my suspicion is that almost all of them have never experienced a game in Memorial Stadium. It was, is, and always will be a special place because of the fans that enter the gates. Good on ya Husker Nation!

"Not the victory but the action; Not the goal but the game; In the deed the glory"

Here's to the Huskers playing well the rest of the way! Cheers!

Michigan - 11/09/13


"I think Husker fans are about the best in the land. Good luck the rest of the way."



Michigan State - 11/16/13

"The last time we went there, I don't think our players understood the environment... They certainly invite you into the lion's den. Come on in, plenty of room." - Head Coach Mark Dantonio

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"This is going to be my first trip to Neb. I have heard they're extremely kind, and that throws you off a little bit." - Calhoun

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"I'm ... unsettled by how pleasant these Husker fans appear to be."

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


"I went 2 years ago, and it did seem like a trap how nice people were. And then someone made the point that there is no other reason to go to Lincoln, so they have to be nice.

It was a good time, good bar scene, tailgating was pretty weak but a lot of solid pregame bar options"

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


"Yep. I was creeped out for a couple of hours. No sh#t talk, everyone was insanely polite.

I asked a couple of folks about it, and the best summation I got was "a lot of us are real farmers, so we spend all but 7 weekends a year working, and we treasure coming in for Husker football and truly love to meet other fans that visit." Very cool."

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Spent Friday night on the town. Not once did we have an issue with the Husker fans. We had drinks bought for us left and right. Had half the people thank us for coming and the rest told us good luck tomorrow. The bands in the bars were great and welcomed us with our fight song. We mentioned over and over the when will they turn on us. Never happened. Even after the game we got high fives and congrats. Nicest in the B1G.

Went to Mistys, nice steakhouse. The bar we liked best was called the Single Barrel. Both A+

Side note: The women are top notch!!! Highly impressed.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Our group is all in our early 30s. Amazing fans. Sane experience as everyone else. Overly nice. Drinks, high fives, go greens, good lucks, legs talk football, f#*k Ohio state, etc.

The stadium is crazy beautiful too. Great city and hot women. I can see any people love coming here.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

In an informal survey of visiting fans at Spartan Stadium last year — for a column I never completed — I learned Nebraska’s fans to be the nicest in the Big Ten, unanimously. Ohio State’s, just as consistently, were considered to be the worst.

The Buckeyes, by the way, are 187-35-1 at home in the last 33 years, a few wins behind the Huskers, so relative cruelty has brought their fans nothing.

The year 1980 is significant because it’s when a way of life became an identity for Nebraska fans, beginning with an open letter from Florida State coach Bobby Bowden, published in the Lincoln and Omaha newspapers, shortly after the Seminoles were cheered as they left the field, following an 18-14 Florida State win.

Dated, Oct. 8, 1980, it read, in part:

“I have never seen people with more class than I saw at Nebraska last week. … I actually had the feeling that when we upset the Nebraska team, that instead of hate and spite, the Nebraska fans thanked us for coming to Lincoln and putting on a good show. This is nearly unheard of in today’s society.”

Or today’s. Except at Nebraska.

McNeese State - 9/6/14

 

 

Best fans we have ever played against. We Never have heard a negative comment the three days we have been here. Greeted with a good luck or have a safe trip home, where is mcneese, y'll should have won and etc. Total class fans from young kids, teenagers to people older than ME! Awesome fans.

 

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

there was no spitting, no cursing, nothing but respect and real knowledge of the game. Best fandom i have ever experienced. From the Dallas airport, to the hotel desk, to the cops; everyone welcomed us and wished us luck.

 

 

 

 

 

Fresno State - 9/13/14

 

 

From a Fresno newspaper - http://www.fresnobee...g-out.html?rh=1

 

 

 Fresno State fan Bridgette Williams, 48, said she got a "wow factor" surprise when she walked into Dog House Grill on Friday. It costs a lot of money to travel -- especially in this economy, Williams said, "so to be able to sacrifice to support their team like this is awesome. I'm impressed -- even though we hope that we beat them down."

 
A.T. Greer, who works for Nebraska's alumni relations, said of the number of Huskers fans: "We get underestimated a lot."
 
Franco added, "Nebraska fans are the classiest fans in college football." Even in defeat, they applaud the winning team and do things like support the Team Jack Foundation to fund research for pediatric brain cancer, he said.
 
"It's not all about football for Nebraska fans. It's about life."

 

 

 

 

Miami - 9/20/14

 

 

"I loved the experience of attending a game at Nebraska. At many stadiums, wearing Miami gear ensures that I'll be yelled at or mocked throughout gameday. This weekend, wearing orange or green was essentially an invite to every tailgate party in Lincoln. I was repeatedly asked if I was enjoying my time in Nebraska. Countless fans wished us good luck and thanked us for making the trip. Cities like Lincoln are what college football is all about. The atmosphere inside the stadium was terrific all night. While the Canes came up short, I'm very glad I had the opportunity to make the trip."

Reddit Thread About the Most Hospitable Fanbases

 

"Nebraska fans were the nicest fans to take over Ryan Field bar none"

 

"Nebraska fans were awful when they came to Madison for their first Big Ten ga...ahhh, I can't keep this up. They were great and I had more than one group of Nebraska fans personally invite me to their tailgate when UW went to Lincoln the next season. Can't wait to eventually make the trip."

 

"Even at Colorado, where they were most hated. agree"

 

"Yep. Great in West Lala"

 

"Seconding Nebraska, they were nice as hell when they beat Clemson in a bowl game, and the close game with MSU 2 years ago was one of the most fun I've ever been to.

Even your creepy old drunk guys are still nice."
 
"They were nice in Ann Arbor as well. Guess they were excited to get outta the Big XII"
 
"They were fantastic when they came to Minnesota too"
 
"Pasadena checking in"
 
"Great fans in Columbus as well!
I love me some Nebraska fans!"
 
 
 
"Nebraska, hands down. We split a keg of home brew with a Father-Son pair of Huskers in the parking lot before the 2010 Big XII championship game. It was cold as hell, but they were fun to talk to."
 
"As far as strict hospitality goes, I don't think anybody can beat Nebraska. Nice, welcoming folks. Everybody was welcoming. I must have heard some variation of "We're so happy you cane on up here. Hope you have a good time even though we're going to beat your poor, lowly, peasant-like Cowpokes (but your team tried awfully hard, and we respect them for that)!"
Perhaps a bit haughty, but extremely welcoming nonetheless. Probably the nicest way I've ever been told that my school sucks before!"
 
 
 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Other Sports


Thanks for writing this column. We watched the regionals on television and commented about the lack of atmosphere in the other three cities hosting a regional. On TV, Nebraska’s sellout crowd was a big part of the action on the court, so we can see why any player in the country would want that kind of experience, especially when it counts most. College volleyball in Lincoln is like college baseball in Omaha. Players from all over the country look forward to coming to the College World Series because the experience is first class and people pay to see them play. That’s why the College World Series has never left the state. Nebraska is a huge volleyball state, and Lincoln deserves to be a national leader in the sport’s development. Nebraska’s earned it the old-fashioned way – through hard work. Steve Henderson, Orlando, Florida

Great thread. I think it's incredibly cool how well opposing fans are treated in Lincoln. And it's neat to see what a reputation Nebraska fans have for being classy, well-behaved and engaging in good sportmanship.

Has anyone considered walking around pre-game in the opponents colors just to get free beer and food and then switch to red before you walk in the stadium. Seems like a good plan to me.

Just like the story of the grasshopper and the octopus. All year long, the grasshopper kept burying acorns for winter, while the octopus mooched off his girlfriend and watched TV. But then the winter came. And the grasshopper died. And the octopus ate all his acorns. Also he got a race car. Is any of this getting through to you?

Husker fans treat the opposing fans better than they treat their own. Ive met a lot of very rude people in Lincoln to me and then a few seconds later "Welcome to Nebraska. Hope you enjoy the trip"

I know there was a thread from the Sparty game as well as the Ohio State game. I'll start it off with this:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nRH479lQSYE

That is a very cool video for you guys. I know you take pride in it, but its pretty cool when a visiting university president stands there and wants to put it on video. Just wish they would have spelled his name correctly on the video.

I think this is one of the great publicity videos you guys have, the video of when he thinks taping is done is better than when he knew he was being filmed; he was speaking from the heart, so-to-speak. Same end, just a bit more emotion involved.

Southern Miss fan here,

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the great fans and people of Nebraska. The long drive to Lincoln was well worth it. Although I wish the outcome had been a little closer, everything I had been told about the way that you welcome and treat opposing fans was completly true. My family and I have never felt more at home and welcomed. Everyone was so nice and thanked us for coming, invited us to tailgate and helpful in getting us where we needed to be. We even went to the bookstore and bought six "Huskers" shirts for our family, including my daughters, who said they will wear them on USM campus Monday. I hope that if you ever come to Hattiesburg someday we can return the same hospitality that you showed us. Oh, and Misty's was a great place to eat, so thanks for the advice. The Yeates Family or Canton, Ms.

I assume from reading this, none of them ran into any of you. Had to.

It is great to read and see these types of comments. That is Nebraska, the way every college game should be. And I might add that there are many on here that make visiting fans feel very welcome. You guys do a good a job of representing Nebraska.

I don't know Ron but I want to echo what he said.
My son is a student trainer at sm and travels to many of the away games. For the past year all he can talk about is how well they were treated by the same group of kids from your school and he could not get over the folks sitting in the end zones clapping even for them as they removed equipment from the field.
I had to experience this myself so the wife and I made that long drive, stopping in Branson for a few days. As we crossed the state line at Neb City a pickup with a huskers plate on the front passed us and gave us a wave and thumbs up. When we arrived the holiday inn near the stadium, a car window rolls down and a guy asked if we had a good trip up. The man checking in next to us extended a hand and said Welcome to Nebraska.
The older guys who work the gates are absolutely the best.
Ive hurt some feelings with the walmart sec fans here at home telling them they could all take some lessons from Nebraska fans.

In regards to the #36 helmet decals worn honoring UCLA's Nick Pasquale:

Been visiting nebraska boards for quite a while and know a few huskers personally. They have by far been the most classy and humble fanbase I have known as a college sports fan. It comes to me as no surprise they would do something like this. They are a good bunch and I will always wish em well.


Also just realized the max number of quote tags rule is going to make this difficult. Blah.

"First of all I want to start by saying a very heartfelt thanks to the Athletic DirectorShawn Eichorst, Head Coach Bo Pelini, to the Husker Nation, their fans, their students and their players for the compassion they showed us this week,” UCLA Coach Jim Mora said in his opening statement of Saturday’s postgame press conference. “I thought it was an incredible gesture they made here, and I think it kind of shows the class here at Nebraska. The fact that they would put a No. 36 decal (Pasquale’s number) on their helmets, and they would have a moment of silence, and their student section cheered us when we took the field and encouraged us on … you just don’t find that at many places. It is just a true testament to the people here at Nebraska and how much they care about football. We are very, very appreciative about that.”



I know that football is very dear to your heart and you support your program whole-heartedly. I just want to say from the Bruin Nation how impressed I was with your program and your class. It was incredible loss of life that the UCLA Bruins experienced last week, and I am forever grateful and humbled by your generous gestures to honor Nick Pasquale both on your helmets and with the balloon release at your stadium. Thank you so much for this special remembrance at your home stadium. You give the true meaning of sport to your program. I will forever regard the Husker Nation as a class act and a hard-nose football program that makes the right choices and stands for the right things. Thank you again, Brooke Sachs, UCLA Alum


I would like to pass on to all your students and alumni that this was truly a class act which lately hasn’t been seen in college sports for a while. Your program truly shows what a top-notch, classy and outstanding program you have. Sports is an important part to many people’s life, but this shows it is more than sports. I write this with the intent it gets passed on to your readers. William Jones, California


Thank you so much for the actions of your student body, your players, and your athletic department. The compassion that you displayed to UCLA was very much appreciated. What was shown on TV was very moving and really showed the class of Husker Nation. Thanks for all that you did and for being such gracious hosts. Here’s hoping that Husker football goes undefeated the rest of the way. I am still very touched by the actions of the NU Athletic Department. Ernest Hui, UCLA Class of 1998, Mountain View, California

So the cloud part is that visiting teams curbstomp us, humiliate us and leave us for dead. The silver lining is that as they leave with our lunch money they compliment us on how classy we are.

Hello Dr. Perlman,
I am a UCLA graduate who was lucky enough to attend this past weekend’s game at Memorial Stadium. I only mention the score below because it impacts how many fans might react to somebody in the opponent’s attire after the game turned as it did; my sentiments would be the same and my email would read the same had Nebraska won 70 to 0. My entire experience in Nebraska, from spending Friday evening in Omaha to getting to experience Lincoln before the game, sitting in the stands, and walking through campus afterward, was simply amazing. Every single Husker fan I interacted with – each and every one – was outgoing and friendly. Many expressed support for our team after the tragic death of one of our players so recently. I was touched to see that in addition to the formal recognition many in the student section and throughout the stadium had their own signs. Even walking through campus after the game, wearing my blue UCLA hat and my blue UCLA shirt after UCLA had a sizable win in Memorial Stadium, I had nothing but pleasant conversations – often started by Husker fans.
I have grown up around universities, as my father taught at five of them throughout my life. Were I not a Bruin, I would be proud if I could be a Husker.

Sincerely,
(KSBruin)

I was in Lincoln this weekend, and even though I had heard about how welcoming Nebraska fans are, I was stunned by how many fans came up and said hello before the game and even more came and shook my hand afterward. The gameday pregame atmosphere was among the best I've ever experienced and the tribute to Nick with the balloons and signs were amazing. Just wanted to say thanks for a great weekend.

Good morning Husker Nation!

I just wanted to thank you for a great experience and renewing my faith as a Husker fan. It was arguably one of the very worst weeks in Husker Football recent history with all that happened. Things could have taken a lot of different paths in how fans reacted. The result was straight class from pregame to postgame. Not sure why I even thought anything else would come from the best fans in College Football. When Pellini walked off the field at the end was the best part. The Husker fans stayed long after the game was over to salute their team and their coach as they left the field. Great stuff.

As a lifelong Husker fan it was really fantastic to experience what the gameday experience is like for fans of the other team. I live in Brookings and have also been a lifelong Jackrabbit fan. Who knew that these worlds would ever collide. I was thanked by dozens of people after the game for making the trip and complimented on the skill and sportsmanship of the Jacks. Since returning home I have heard from numerous friends who know I'm a Husker fan about how great their experience was as well.

There are plenty of Husker haters out there, my suspicion is that almost all of them have never experienced a game in Memorial Stadium. It was, is, and always will be a special place because of the fans that enter the gates. Good on ya Husker Nation!

"Not the victory but the action; Not the goal but the game; In the deed the glory"

Hartley Burr Alexander

Here's to the Huskers playing well the rest of the way! Cheers!

I've missed a bit with this thread (anyone have any references for the last few weeks?), but here's a small something better than nothing from UM:


I think Husker fans are about the best in the land. Good luck the rest of the way.

You know, we are always basking in the glory of statements such as: "best fans ever" and "really classy fans"...and those remarks are pretty well deserved. But I wanted to take a minute to mention something I saw briefly on television at the end of the first half of the Michigan game.

The Huskers and MU had to leave via the same tunnel and there were (as there usually are) many fans lined up along the tunnel to give high fives to the players as they walked off the field. In this case there were a few fans dressed in red but most of the fans lining the tunnel were dressed in blue. It looked to me that the Michigan fans were high fiving and tapping the helmets of the Nebraska players as much as they were the Michigan players. That is pretty classy....Just thought I'd mention it seeing as how that is not always the way the Huskers are treated on the road.

Remember all those stories of the crappy behavior from Wisconsin Fan during our trip to Madison a couple years ago? Notice how you don't hear that about pretty much any other road trip? I think the whole of the Big Ten is like that - pretty classy people, salt-of-the-earth people, good fans and good sports.

I didn't notice the Michigan fans applauding our team as they went into the tunnel, but it's not surprising. They seem like pretty cool people.

My experience at Michigan was a good one. Obviously, I've never been a visiting fan in Lincoln, so I don't have comparison, but it was kind of neutral for me as a Nebraska fan. Nobody had any rude or poor-taste things to say, and nobody had any out-of-the-way comments or kindness either. They just let me do me. Seem like a good bunch, and Ann Arbor has to be one of the best college towns in the country.

Updated main post:






Michigan State - 11/16/13

"The last time we went there, I don't think our players understood the environment... They certainly invite you into the lion's den. Come on in, plenty of room." - Head Coach Mark Dantonio

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"This is going to be my first trip to Neb. I have heard they're extremely kind, and that throws you off a little bit." - Calhoun

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"I'm ... unsettled by how pleasant these Husker fans appear to be."

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


"I went 2 years ago, and it did seem like a trap how nice people were. And then someone made the point that there is no other reason to go to Lincoln, so they have to be nice.

It was a good time, good bar scene, tailgating was pretty weak but a lot of solid pregame bar options"

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


"Yep. I was creeped out for a couple of hours. No sh#t talk, everyone was insanely polite.

I asked a couple of folks about it, and the best summation I got was "a lot of us are real farmers, so we spend all but 7 weekends a year working, and we treasure coming in for Husker football and truly love to meet other fans that visit." Very cool."

That last line is about as likely to be true (as in, truly said to that person) as someone from Boston telling me they spend all their time out on crab boats fighting the sea which is why everyone in Boston is so fiesty.

It's quite the stereotype to avow as real. Still... if he ran into the right person, or that person was funnin' him, I could see someone from around here saying it.

Spent Friday night on the town. Not once did we have an issue with the Husker fans. We had drinks bought for us left and right. Had half the people thank us for coming and the rest told us good luck tomorrow. The bands in the bars were great and welcomed us with our fight song. We mentioned over and over the when will they turn on us. Never happened. Even after the game we got high fives and congrats. Nicest in the B1G.

Went to Mistys, nice steakhouse. The bar we liked best was called the Single Barrel. Both A+

Side note: The women are top notch!!! Highly impressed.



Our group is all in our early 30s. Amazing fans. Sane experience as everyone else. Overly nice. Drinks, high fives, go greens, good lucks, legs talk football, f#*k Ohio state, etc.

The stadium is crazy beautiful too. Great city and hot women. I can see any people love coming here.

To me, the whole "Greatest fans" thing is almost exclusively a reference to our goodwill to opposing teams and their fans when they visit Memorial Stadium.

Some people give themselves too much credit sometimes. Like the "why wasn't AA in the game when Newby fumbled" people. So knowledgeable. Or the guy who called the Bo Pelini call in show the other night asking why the fake FG wasn't intentional grounding. Most people don't know as much as they think they do. Me included.

Anybody could sit there on a busted pass play and say we should have run the ball. Or on a busted run play, we should have passed the ball. Doesn't make you a knowledgeable football fan.
