A Student’s Story: A Different Kind Of Recruiting

This story is not about sport. It is about my daughter’s journey to choosing a college. I offer it as an example of recruiting of a different kind. It is January 30th, 2014. I am driving our 2002 Ford Focus down I-35. My daughter and wife like the Ford. I hate it. It is too small, too light and it seems like every time I drive it, it’s the worst weather possible. The wind is blowing. The road is icy. It’s snowing, but not so...

Old Farmer’s Almanac Predicts 2014 as Year of Really Bad Tackling

Ben Hackinston was surprised while taking a look at his grandfather’s Old Farmer’s Almanac this August only to discover there was a section on college football despite the fact that it’s been there every year since 1936. Hackinston isn’t alone. Few have noticed that section because the only people who ever read the Old Farmer’s Almanac are old farmers, and they don’t talk to anyone else. The Old Farmer’s Almanac is famous for predicting weather patterns, but this year’s edition includes a segment predicting poor...

Forever Red: Update Coming To A Great Husker Book

If you’re a Husker fan and not familiar with the book, “Forever Red: Confessions of a Cornhusker Football Fan”, shame on you. Written by Steve Smith and published by University of Nebraska Press (they put out some darned fine books, btw), I reviewed it back in 2006, stating: I wouldn’t call this a ‘fan’ book as much as I’d call it a personal search by author Steve Smith trying to understand his love, passion, and fanaticism for Husker football. That search leads through his life...

Video: Bo Pelini & The Huskers Have A Message For Jack Hoffman

The team finds out what’s going on with Team Jack and they speak out on the latest news. So, we all know about the latest issue with Jack Hoffman. If not, a quick refresher. It was found out a few weeks ago that Jack’s brain tumor had come out of remission. And the opening line that was used in his CaringBridge page gave us all a reminder of the Hoffman’s constant battle. Today we were humbly reminded that when your child has an inoperable brain...

Television Money Driving Rise of Neutral Site College Football Games

In recent years, neutral site games have become increasingly popular in college football. At first glance, it’s easy to see why – big names playing big games: Wisconsin/LSU, Alabama/West Virginia, Florida State/Oklahoma State. But there’s one thing I haven’t been able to understand: why on a neutral field? Why isn’t Wisconsin playing in Baton Rouge this season? Why aren’t West Virginia and Alabama playing in Tuscaloosa? Why isn’t Florida State playing in Tallahassee? Wisconsin athletic director Barry Alvarez wonders the same thing. He tried to...

2014 Nebraska Football Opponent Preview: Minnesota Golden Gophers

From my perspective, Nebraska’s worst loss of 2013 seems to be the one nobody really talks about. It’s easy to bring up UCLA’s 38 unanswered points, the five fumbles by freshmen against Michigan State, and just about everything that backfired against Iowa. Those are games that one could argue Nebraska could have won. It’s tougher to argue that Nebraska should have beaten Minnesota in Minneapolis. The Gophers dominated Nebraska from the second quarter on; outrushing and outpassing Nebraska and basically wearing the Big Red down....

Big Red Cobcast: Charlie McBride Interview

The fellas interview Mr Blackshirts himself! They talk about computers, recruiting Barry Sanders, Bo Pelini and who the huskers need to look out for next season. I became a Husker fan when I was a kid, just like most of us. We also probably started cheering for many of the same reasons: Family, friends, neighborhoods, cities, hell, the whole state shut down on game day. What else were we really going to do? I wasn’t going to walk the empty streets of Lincoln alone, mainly...

State of the Corn Nation: An Anniversary, A Request

It’s an anniversary! It’s a Corn Nation anniversary! It’s eight years now since CN was started! I think, anyway, right around in here somewhere. I can’t really remember. I could go back and find our first post, but that would take time and like I have said before, I’m a little lazy, and honestly I don’t care that much about dates. Does anyone remember what was going on eight years ago today? Let’s go back… back… back…. to… 2006 Some fans were hopeful. Some were...

Nebrasketball: Andrew White III To Transfer To Nebraska From Kansas

The Husker Roundballers get their second commitment of the day! Well, well, well, lookie here! After this morning’s announcement that 2017 Omaha South sophomore Aguek Arop had committed, it was already a big day for Nebraska basketball. Now, just a couple of hours later we learn the much anticipated announcement where the transfer from Kansas prized land, has indeed been made. Andrew White III has indeed committed to the University of Nebraska selecting the Huskers over new Big Ten rival Maryland. I have decided to...

Nebraska Cornhuskers 22nd In Initial 2014 Associated Press Poll.

The AP has the Huskers in the same spot as the Coaches do. Your Nebraska Cornhuskers debut at 22nd in the initial Associated Press media poll for the 2014 College Football season. The Huskers, who are one of 4 Big Ten teams ranked, were ranked in the same 22nd spot in the initial Amway Coaches Poll for the season as well. While the AP poll is more about rank than it is about picking the new CFB Playoff teams, the Committee can use it to...

Boys’ Club Infiltrated. Introducing Ranchbabe

There’s no girls on football blogs!?! Hello everyone! Most of you know me already, but Jon asked me to write an introduction and tell you a little more about myself. Being the only girl in the room is nothing new for me. In my own house I am outnumbered 4:1 by hubby and our 3 sons. I spend most of my time feeding them, at least when I am not working at my paying job. How I became a football fan: This is the part...
