The Ultimate Husker Fullback Bracket: The Final Four!

It’s getting harder to say goodbye to some of these players as this bracket moves forward. We’ve had some upsets in past brackets, but this one only features one of the top four seeds in the final matchups. It shows how hard it is to seed fullbacks. It also shows how hard it is to compare players from decades ago with players of recent times. For many CN fans, I think we’d have been perfectly content with a Tom Rathman vs Cory Schlesinger matchup for...

The Ultimate Husker Fullback Bracket: Second Round Voting is Open

Both Makovicka brothers advance to the Elite Eight. Who else joins them? I have enjoyed diving into the history of Husker football on many of these brackets. I’ve learned a lot about players from yesteryear and learned interested tidbits about recent players. The fullbacks may have been the most fun group of the bunch. Brew’s highly scientific seeding system held true. All the favored players advanced to the second round. Both Makovicka brothers moved on. Davis (X2), Rathman, Franklin, Solich, Schlesinger…that is an impressive group...

AJ’s film displays everything you’d want to see from a tight end. He...

Best Husker Wrestlers Ever: No. 2 Bill Scherr

One of Nebraska’s best returners, Eric Schultz holds down Nebraska’s 197-pound weight class, right where Husker legend Bill Scherr would likely have wrestled in today’s game.

The Ultimate Husker Fullback Bracket

Now, we’re talking. Bring on the fullbacks. Our mad bracket scientist Brew has spoken. He is going to make redvalley pick between Janovich and Schlesinger in the first round. That’s cold Brew. Cold. Most fan bases wouldn’t even dream of a 16 player fullback bracket. Tip o’ the hat to you Brew for not only finding sixteen fullbacks, but finding some really good ones! How did he come up with these seedings? I wrote each name on an origami swan, put all swans into a...

eSports Comes To CN – JOIN US!

We’re gonna have fun one way or another It’s good to have goals. A long-standing goal I’ve had for CornNation is to make sure we’re entertaining. Interesting. It’s a challenging goal to maintain given you’re here (mostly) for our beloved Huskers sports team and there will be no sports at Nebraska or any other Big Ten School this fall, and potentially through the winter. I have an obligation as site manager to keep you entertained. Interested. Therefore, I jumped at the chance when our Iowa...

Nebraska Ultimate Defensive Line Bracket: The Final Four

It is Glover vs Dutton and Suh vs Peter in the Final Four! I know I promised to put this up on Wednesday or Thursday, but then the Big Ten decided to announce its football schedule and WE ACTUALLY HAD REAL LIVE FOOTBALL STUFF TO TALK ABOUT! We are down to the Final Four. The lone upset in Round Two was in Jason Peter beating Wayne Meylan. I know there was a spirited effort in the comments last time rallying support for Meylan, but alas...

Nebraska Football Ultimate Rush End Bracket: Wistrom Wins

Nebraska Football Ultimate I-Back Bracket: The Final Four

One upset in the second round means a controversial player in Husker history makes the final four The final four is set! There were not too many surprises, not even the upset was a real surprise as #11 Lawrence Phillips gathered 65% of the vote to 35% for #3 Ameer Abdullah. In our final four matchups, I feel like we are seeing the real championship match on the left side of the bracket in Rozier vs Green. That is going to be a hard vote...
