Sir Yacht Was (Kind of) Right

Photo by Sabri Kesen/Anadolu Agency via Getty Images Do you believe him? This pandemic has caused 2020 to drag on more than needed. March feels like it was six years ago instead of the six months it’s been. The longest point these past six months has been August 11, when the Big Ten decided to cancel football, until Wednesday morning, when they decided to try playing. The Big Ten not playing this fall lasted just over a month, but for Husker fans it was a...

The Ballad of Ewald O. Stiehm

Edwald made Nebraska a football & basketball power in the 1910′s In the hallowed halls of Husker fandom you will hear mention many great coaches. Many of which you all probably know off the top of your head. Tom Osborne, Bob Devaney, Dave Van Horn, and Bill Cook to name just a few. However, there is one coach that many not come to mind when discussing Husker athletics and to be honest, it should. To know more about this coach we will have to go...

Huskers in the NFL Week 1

Getty Images How each Former Husker did during opening week With Nebraska not playing (yet) and there really not being any great college football games as of now, Huskers fans have to turn their attention somewhere else. That place may be the NFL where Huskers fans have always been loyal to former Huskers as they have followed their careers since leaving Lincoln. Each week I’ll take a look at how each of the former Huskers did in their NFL games while also highlighting the performer...

We Have No Idea What Is Going On, Flakes

Photo by JORGE GUERRERO/AFP via Getty Images Yep, we are all living a lie We were, I assume, supposed to get word on whether the Big 10 presidents voted or not last night to play football this fall. Nothing came to light. So, either nothing did happen or they are just waiting until later today to announce. I honestly have no idea what take of any of this. We have heard this before. Yes, I know Nebraska’s president Carter was overheard talking about it on...

I wanted to talk to a professional about what they’re seeing with regards to the effects of the pandemic on mental health.

Frosted Flakes: Cronk, Wildlife Comedy, Electric Fly Swatters and Gas Don’t Mix

Photo by: Arterra/Universal Images Group via Getty Images While we are waiting for the Big Ten presidents to vote on fall sports, let’s enjoy some worldwide absurdity Happy Monday Corn Nation! Patrick and I have switched days that we do Flakes. I mean, why should we ‘hold’ the poop article until Wednesday?!? The NFL kicked off yesterday. It was kind of weird seeing the empty chairs whenever a field goal was kicked. I’ve also heard differing opinions on the crowd noise. Some really dislike it...

Tom Rathman Is Corn Nation’s Ultimate Husker Fullback

The pride of Grand Island tops the most Husker bracket of them all In a bracket full of native Nebraska hard-working, lunch pail success stories, Tom Rathman has emerged as the ultimate Husker fullback. There were at least half a dozen players at this position that I could have seen as the winner when Brew first unveiled his bracket. Rathman is one of them. With a relatively close vote (60%-40%) the former 49er beat out Joel Makovicka in Corn Nation’s vote. Tom Rathman This one...

Five Heart Podcast Episode 193: The One with a Live Audience

Jon Johnston We’re planning on doing this again. We did a live podcast last Thursday night. Greg wasn’t around, so I got the idea we should offer a live Zoom show along with a Facebook live show. I had hoped for more feedback on Facebook, but since it’s the first time we’ve done it, especially live on Facebook, what we got wasn’t so bad. The video looks silly at the beginning because, well, working with Facebook can be difficult. Mostly we talked about this constant...
