Nebraska County Countdown 45: Webster

Dazzy Vance, Willa Cather, Red Cloud, Bob Terrio, and Wide Left We are more than halfway through our county countdown. You know what that means? We’re getting closer to Husker football! Welcome to Webster County, the childhood home of Willa Cather. The population is 3,625 (2015) and the county seat is Red Cloud. The other “city” in Webster County is Blue Hill.

Nebraska County Countdown: #46 Merrick

Welcome to Merrick County! Organized in 1864, it was named for Elvira Merrick, the maiden name of the wife of territorial legislator Henry W. DePuy, who introduced the bill that created the county. Not this Elvira. A different one. The geography of Merrick is unique. The northern edge is jagged because the Pawnee Indian Reservation was formed a year before, and they overlapped. The southern edge is bound by the Platte River. No boring rectangles here, Merrick has style!. Central City is the county seat....

Frosted Flakes: Akinmoladun Nominated for Good Works Team

The world’s longest fingernails, Jupiter’s moons, a ninja shortage and watch out for drawbridges It’s watchlist season. Except, that we know there won’t be many Huskers on watchlists after least year’s 4-8 debacle. We might see a receiver or two appear, but I’m not sure how many others will catch the eye of selection committees. One list where Nebraska players make frequent appearances is the Allstate Good Works Team. This year 169 college football players were nominated, including Nebraska’s senior defensive end Freedom Akinmoladun. The...

Nebraska County Countdown: 47 Valley

Welcome to beautiful Valley County, heart of the bountiful North Loup River Valley! Valley County was named for its topography, which is much more varied in elevation than other areas of the state. My grandpa Charron said we could run more cattle on a section of pasture than he could, “because our cattle could graze all five sides.” It was organized in 1874 when Fort Hartsuff was established. The county seat is Ord, and includes the towns of Arcadia, Elyria and North Loup. One of...

Nebraska County Countdown: 48 – Red Willow: The Hoyt Murders And The Worst Way to Die I Know

The good news is that there are only 48 days until 2018 Nebraska football. Red Willow County is south of Frontier County where I grew up. The biggest town and county seat is the city of McCook. McCook and North Platte were both about the same distance from my hometown, Curtis. They were both considered “cities” when I was young. When we wanted to go somewhere “special”, we went to North Platte or McCook. Here’s what Wikipedia says about Red Willow County: Red Willow County...

Nebraska County Countdown: 49 Howard County

Named after Union General Oliver Otis Howard, Howard County was organized in 1871. It was originally settled by the Paul brothers, who were Scouts for the US Army. They remarked on the beauty of the area, and determined to start a settlement there. The land there was originally all railroad land and part of Hall County. St. Paul is the county seat. There are also several villages; Boelus, Cotesfield, Cushing, Dannebrog, Elba and Farwell. One of the best reasons to visit Howard County was the...

Nebraska County Countdown: #50 Franklin County

The big ole five-oh While it was officially established in 1867, many of Franklin County’s first settlers left because of hostilities from the local Native Americans. The Pawnee tribe was the main tribe in the area and used it as bison-hunting range. So the first official group of settlers were from the Rankin colony. The population of Rankin Colony in 1870 was 26 people. The population of Franklin county was steady to decreasing until the Burlington and Missouri River Railroad extended its lines through the...

Confronting our Demons: A Corn Nation Roundtable on whether 2007 or 2017 was Worse

We wade into the cesspool of the two worst seasons of Nebraska football in modern times. Which was worse? We can’t fully move past the horror that is Nebraska Football since 2001 without confronting our demons. To do that, the Corn Nation staff debates which Nebraska football team was worse: 2007 or 2017? Nate M: My answer is more personal than stats, analytics or records but 2007 was by far worse for me than 2017. I vividly remember the Oklahoma State game in 2007 as...

Nebraska County Countdown: #51 Harlan County

You’ll never leave Harlan alive Welcome to Harlan County. Home of the Midwest famous Harlan County Reservoir. We hope you come for the man made reservoir lake and stay for the homemade walking tacos. It’s powerful fun for the entire family! For most of the United States, Harlan County, Nebraska is not the first Harlan County that comes to mind. Most likely that distinction would be to Harlan County, Kentucky. An area known for coal and all the fun they had in the 1970′s during...
