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...

Frosted Flakes: Getting Old, Science, and Meteors

One more piece of the Nebrasketball schedule has been announced and science can be awesome (most of the time). I must be getting old. The ads I see when I log in to Facebook have turned into things like “Here’s some great plastic surgery doctors in your area” and “Hurry to be sure you are part of this toilet connector class action lawsuit” (huh, what?). I don’t feel old. Okay, my shoulder popped and creaked a little when I got out of bed this morning....

Nebraska County Countdown: 52 – Kearney Or Kearny – Take Your Pick

Carny? Karnee? I never realized this was so confusing. Hey, did you guys know there is a Kearney County in Nebraska that is a completely different place than the city of Kearney? It’s true! I probably knew this at one point, then I forgot, so I signed up to cover Kearney County when I really wanted to write about the city of Kearney. I realize I shouldn’t admit such simple mistakes as they may make me look like a boob, but I feel that we’ve...

2018 Michigan Wolverines Football Preview

Dismiss Jim Harbaugh’s team at your own peril. Jim Harbaugh has turned losing teams into big winners just about everywhere. Two eleven win seasons at San Diego, and another at Stanford Three NFC championship games in four seasons with the San Francisco 49ers. Except at his alma mater, at least to this point. Sure, he bumped a five win Michigan squad to back-to-back ten win seasons in his first two seasons, but last season, the Wolverines stumbled to 8-5. And with Harbaugh’s reputation for wearing...

Nebraska County Countdown 53: Stanton County

Tornadoes, rivers, and a fumblerooski, Oh My! Welcome to Stanton County! The two towns in the county are Stanton (county seat) and Pilger. Woodland Park, which is essentially a suburb of Norfolk, is also located in Stanton County as a “census-designated area.” The total population in 2010 was 6,129 people. Originally called Izard County (after the second territorial governor of Nebraska), it was renamed in 1862 for Edwin Stanton, Abraham Lincoln’s Secretary of War. The county was formally organized in 1867 and is one of...

Nebraska County Countdown: #54 Pawnee County

The fire heard around the county We are currently 54 days with football. So we will commemorate such a great day by reviewing our next county in Nebraska. Pawnee County. Named after the Pawnee Native American Indian Tribe, the Pawnee County seat is creatively named Pawnee City. I assume Pawnee County gave the idea to the state of New Mexico that you really do not have to be super creative in picking your “capitol.” Pawnee County was established in 1854. That was the same year...

Nebraska Football: Tight Ends Snyder and Engelhaupt Leave Program

Further Reshaping of Roster Occurs as Team Transitions to New Offensive Style The Nebraska Athletic Department updated its official roster today, and two more names have been identified as players who have moved on from the Husker football program. Matt Snyder, junior tight end from California, has retired from football. He exercised his option to remain at Nebraska to finish his college career, while no longer participating in football. Snyder played in seven games last season, recording no receptions. David Engelhaupt, sophomore tight end who...
