Nebraska County Countdown: 78 – Deuel County, The Sam Bass Gang

Welcome to the great county of Deuel! Named after Harry P. Deuel – the superintendent of Union Pacific in Omaha – Deuel county has a population of around 2,000 residents. The largest town and county seat Chappell, Nebraska, came to be when Charles Henry Chappell set up a railroad post in the middle of the newly formed county. Shipments from Omaha going west would have instructions to “Send this to Chappell” and the name has stuck. Deuel County gained notoriety on September 18th, 1877, when...

Nebraska County Countdown: 77 – Garden County, Ku Klux Klan Encounter

Welcome to Garden County, Nebraska! Named after the residents’ aspiration of creating the “Garden of the West”, replicating the Garden of Eden, Garden County has a population of around 2,000 people. The largest town and county seat is Oshkosh, Nebraska, named after Oshkosh, Wisconsin. We have had a Wisconsin town in our state this whole time… In 1987, the Garden County Historical Society published a book Helen M. Robinson’s recollections, which contains memories of Mrs. Robinson and other citizens about the history of the County...

Nebraska Football Non-Conference Scheduling: A CornNation Roundtable

When NU AD Bill Moos mentioned scheduling former Big Eight rivals, the CN team sat down to talk about what we’d like to see in non-conference football scheduling. On Monday at a meet-and-greet with fans in Gering, Nebraska athletic director brought up scheduling non-conference games with former Big Eight rivals. Bill Moos again said in Western Nebraska today that NU is exploring scheduling Kansas and Kansas State.— Sam McKewon (@swmckewonOWH) June 11, 2018 Given the constraints of the Big Ten’s nine-game conference schedule, Nebraska currently...

Nebraska County Countdown: 79 – Hayes County, A Flying Metal Rod And The Hot, Hot Sun

What I remember about Hayes County. Hayes County has only one real town, and that is the county seat, Hayes Center. Hamlet is listed as another town, but I’m not sure it exists anymore. Palisade is partially in the county as well. Is it real? I don’t know. Hayes Center is the only town I remember. I grew up next door in Frontier County. We played basketball and ran track against Hayes Center when I was in high school at Medicine Valley in Curtis. We...

NCAA Makes Two Substantial Changes for Division 1 College Football

More freedom for the student athlete Two sweeping changes by the NCAA were announced today. Starting this season, football players can play in up to four games without losing a season of competition The first major change is that college football players can now participate in up to four games in a season without using up a “season of competition.” So, if Coach Frost wants to start Adrian Martinez for two games at the beginning of this next season, and two games at the end...

Friday Night Lights Happening in Memorial Stadium This Weekend

Everything you wanted to know but were afraid to ask One of the more successful methods of improving the visibility of the Husker Brand under the previous regime was the incorporation of short camp/visits named “Friday Night Lights”. Frost and Friends have wisely decided to continue this program. It utilizes one of Nebraska’s greatest strengths, its rabid fanbase, to sell the University to prospective recruits. This weekend is the first Friday Night Lights event, with another next weekend as well. Fan information for Friday Night...

2018 Nebraska Football Position Examination – Tight Ends

Tight ends might be a big presence this coming season! I probably should have included the tight ends with the wide receivers, but… hey, offseason milking of position articles – that’s what’s going on here. There are nine tight ends currently listed on Nebraska’s roster. Matt Snyder is still listed, but he will not be playing football. He just simply hasn’t announced it publicly. It’s been a while since Nebraska had a really good tight end. You might go back to Cethan Carter, who played...

Nebraska County Countdown to Kickoff: Day 82

Let’s take a trip to Keya Paha County! Cowabunga County…No wait. Keya Paha County, Nebraska, sounds like it should be near a large body of water. Unfortunately, Nebraska is the farthest that you can be in the entire union from such a thing. Originally named after the Dakota Indian word Keya Paha, “turtle hill”, the county’s largest town and also active county seat is Springview, Nebraska. The Keya Paha River used to be the dividing line between South Dakota and Nebraska up until 1882 when...

Frosted Flakes: Moving On

Not everything last forever. Take advantage while you can. I had two topics that I wanted to cover in Flakes today. As I sit here in front of my computer I believe that I have lost the interest or passion to discuss these two. Last week I was inspired but that feeling has left me. The first one was over the upcoming loss of my town’s weekly newspaper. The second was the passing of Anthony Bourdain. There are times in our lives when we really...

Nebraska Women’s Basketball: ACC vs Big Ten Challenge Matchups Set

The Huskers drew the defending ACC champs who were also a 2018 NCAA Tournament Final Four team The Nebraska women’s basketball team is coming off a surprising season in which they finished third in the Big Ten (regular season) and earned an NCAA tournament bid. Ultimately, the young Huskers exited the Dance in the first round, but return a lot of key contributors and bring in some good young talent. Their reward for a great season? The matchups for the ACC/Big Ten women’s basketball challenge...
