  1. Any early 80's Lincoln Southeast High alums on this board remember this guy? I'm channel surfing now (4:40-ish AM) while eating breakfast and I'm currently watching a gameshow on CW network Funny You Should Ask. Jon Kelley is the host. I'd seen him in various small segments on TV here and there over the years but was curious where I'd seen him and went to his IMDB page. In his Bio it said he played football @ Nebraska on a full ride scholarship. So I did a roster search on Huskers.com to see what his Huskers Bio might say, but it's blank. He was an I-Back and came in with Keith Jones in 1984. Not to mention the I-Back room at that time already featured Doug Dubose and Jeff Smith. My memory isn't what it used to be but I don't remember Jon Kelley. But I do remember K. Jones, Dubose and Smith during those years obviously. Just curious if anyone here remembers when Jon Kelley played @ Nebraska? Per his IMDB bio he was raised by a single mother (Peggy Kelley) whom worked at the Lincoln Journal Star for 25 years. He was also a free agent with the Denver Broncos in 1988. As a journalist in Chicago, he covered all six Chicago Bulls championship teams in the 90s. He graduated with a Broadcast Journalism degree from UNL. Beautiful wife and kids too. Looks like life has been good to him. Kudos to Jon! Here's a short clip of Jon Kelley wearing a Nebraska shirt. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PWTOxqi2fB8 Various Jon Kelley youtube clips: https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=jon+kelley
  2. Just a heads up for those of you who might want to watch a reality show shot in Hartington, Nebraska. FYI, Hartington is the hometown of former Husker great Russ Hochstein. The show covers the day-to-day work grind of a married couple who are Veterinarians in Hartington, Nebraska. Personally, I'm not a reality show kinda guy, but my niece is a Veterinary Technician and she informed me of this new series and I've watched all of the episodes (4 of them so far) and it's actually pretty good. The show follows Drs. Ben and Erin Schroeder. Ben is a Nebraska native while Erin is an upstate New York native. They met in Veterinary School @ Kansas State. Erin was a scholarship basketball player @ Syracuse University. You'll get to see lots of rural Nebraska camera shots along with Nebraska clothing gear here and there. Some of you that post here on Huskerboard might even know some of the folks that appear on the show? For you Nebraska expats missing The Good Life this show might appeal to your visual senses. The first episode aired January 25th, 2020 and will be a limited 6 episode series for now with the possibility of more episodes later. You can stream past episodes on-demand via subscription. Otherwise it airs on Saturdays @ 9:00pm central time on National Geographic Wild. If you're a Spectrum cable customer in Nebraska, you can find it on channel 130.

  3. Tis the season!  Nebraska Soccer started their season tonight @ Kansas.  Speaking of which, for you hardcore Hockey fans,  just an FYI.  'The Great One' Wayne Gretzky's niece, Mila Gretzky (her dad Brent Gretzky briefly played in the NHL) is a Freshman on the Nebraska Soccer team.

  5. Hey, knapplc! Legend! Hope you're in good health and spirits? I see you're still here clicking the keys around this side of the internet.
  6. What's up, HB'ers? Just thought I'd make a rare post today. It's been awhile! Foecke could reach #3 on the All-Time kills list depending on numerous variables of course. As it stands now she is 18 shy of passing Jordan Larson (#5). 21 shy of passing Nancy Metcalf (#4). 51 shy of passing Lisa Reitsma (#3). If her past NCAA performances are any indication to gauge future performance, here are her kills stats in the tournament: 2015: 6 matches = 12, 12, 8, 11, 12, 19 = 74 kills 2016: 5 matches = 13, 10, 9, 9, 13 = 54 kills 2017: 6 matches = 9, 7, 7, 18, 19, 20 = 80 kills I see her passing Larson and Metcalf this weekend if all goes according to plan. Catching Reitsma will be a tougher task, but possible if we can go deep in the tournament. If we make the Final Four, then I could see Foecke passing Reitsma. Another nifty little piece of trivia is that players recruited from Nebraska and Iowa currently hold 8 of the Top 10 spots on the All-Time kills list. Nebraska with 5 (Weston, Larson, Rolfzen, Stahr, DeBoer) and Iowa with 3 (Reitsma, Metcalf, Foecke). The Hammer from Canada, Sarah Pavan (#1) and The Killer from Illinois, Eileen Shannon (#8) round out the Top 10. NU Top 10 All-Time kills list: 1. Sarah Pavan (CAN) - 2008 2. Allison Weston (NE) - 1778 3. Lisa Reitsma (IA) - 1633 4. Nancy Metcalf (IA) - 1603 5. Jordan Larson (NE) - 1600 6. Mikaela Foecke (IA) - 1583 7. Kadie Rolfzen (NE) - 1564 8. Eileen Shannon (IL) 1521 9. Virginia Stahr (NE) 1395 10. Kathi DeBoer (NE) 1372 Source: http://www.huskers.com/pdf9/5296318.pdf?DB_OEM_ID=100

  10. Nice to see the ladies flip the script on Stanford this time. The last time Nebraska played in the NCAA Regionals was 2011 @ Stanford. Stanford eliminated us that weekend to advance to Super Regionals. Way to go, Lady Huskers. Now onto Oregon...
