Corn Nation Overreaction Revisited: The Battle for NU – 2023 Edition

This week on Corn Nation Overreaction Revisited, Greg and Hoss discuss the 2023 Battle for NU: Nebraska vs Northwestern. Was it the most beautiful win of the season? No. But Hoss indicates it may be the most important. We tied it into the Illinois game from the previous week and how perhaps the goal line stand at the beginning of that game played an integral part in the Huskers not being a 2- or 3-win team. Nebraska overcame an opening-drive interception and did just enough...

Friday Flakes: Is Nebraska Football’s Memorial Stadium One of the Hardest Places for Opponents to Play? EA Sports Says No.

Reese Strickland-USA TODAY Sports I remember growing up through the 90s and the 2000s and you would always hear about the great atmosphere at Memorial Stadium. It was difficult for opposing teams to come in and get a win. That veneer has slowly been chipped away. I might argue that the first blow to the idea that Nebraska is a difficult place to play was in a win. In 1998, Nebraska beat Louisiana Tech 56-27. However, Troy Edwards ended up setting a NCAA record with...

Five Heart Podcast: The June Drought of Nebraska Football, LIVE Tonight at 9pm Central

This week we’re continuing to look at future Huskers. Or…maybe future Huskers? TJ Lateef recently answered “I won’t speak on that” in an interview when asked if his recruiting was shut down after committing to Nebraska. So obviously the sky is falling. But hey, maybe we’re landing 5-star transfer kicker John Hohl. Will he be a back up to Tristan Alvano? For 7 weeks Nebraska lists “Elite” players, so who makes the Week 3 List? And running back Mekhi Nelson re-classified his play year from...

Monday Night Therapy: I’m Going Fishing And Care About Nothing Else – Tonight at 8 PM

Want to see my lures? I have a bad attitude about everything right now. I don’t care about Nebraska football. I don’t care about sports. I don’t care about work. All I care is that this Saturday I’m going fishing for a week in Canada and there is a good chance that where I’m going there’s a lot of Canadian whore fish that will hit anything. I’m so in for that because I haven’t caught a muskie in a long time. I’ve never caught a...

Running Back Mekhi Nelson Commits to Nebraska

CornNation really really really needs a recruiting writer. And possibly more college football writers before fall. So send me an email – Cornnation@gmail.com – if interested. Nebraska keeps adding more players! Mekhi Nelson, a three-star running back out of St. Thomas More high school in Oakdale, Connecticut has already enrolled at Nebraska and will be a part of the class of 2024. Note that he’s rated a three-star by 247, and basically no one else has rated him because maybe Matt Rhule and EJ Barthel...

It is supposed to be a hot day in the Good Life. Drink plenty of fluids, take breaks and cool down when you can. When Husker news is sparse (summer time!)

Corn Nation Over Reaction Revisits Nebraska Football’s Goalline Stand that Changed the Illinois Game

This week Hoss and Greg discuss the 2023 Nebraska-Illinois game with a special guest. Mike co-hosts another of Greg’s podcasts and went with Greg and his oldest (Garrett) to his first in-person Husker football game. This game started bleak as the Illini marched down the field on their opening drive. But Bret Bielema’s team was stonewalled in what could be considered the defining series of the game as the Blackshirt defense stood tall at the goalline. Nebraska parlayed that into points on the other end...
