A book by David Max
What does it mean to grow up as a Husker fan? My first recollection of Nebraska football was as an 11 year old in 1962 which was Bob Devaney's first year as coach. I don't have any recollections of his predecessor Bill Jennings who was fired at the end of the 1961 season.
UNI-CORNS? Okay, so the new Cornhusker uniforms (uni-corns?) Nebraska will be wearing when the Wisconsin Badgers come to Lincoln September 29th have met the approval of some of the Husker players, but I have yet to hear one Husker fan give a thumbs up to them.
I'm a traditionalist at heart, but I'll take Haymarket Park over the Buck; the Century Link Center over the Omaha Civic Auditorium, and TD Ameritrade Park over Rosenblatt Stadium. Change
It's a hypothetical question, but it's about to be played out in real life.
If you had to build a major college football defense from scratch, would you rather have three All-America-caliber studs supported by several dependable starters and a few untested players? Or would you prefer 11 steady Eddies, none of them even a preseason all-conference selection, but who can play well together?
Watching the Penn State disaster unravel like a cheap oriental rug has been disturbing to say the least. A bit on that later, for now I want to focus on the upcoming season and what we as Husker fans can reasonably expect to see out of our beloved team.

The rulings came a day after the statue of Joe Paterno and the wall behind it had been removed.

Aaron Babcock and Mike Babcock (no relation) have recently left their positions as the editor and contributing editor, respectively, of "Huskers Illustrated" to launch a new Husker magazine called (are you ready for this?) "Hail Varsity."
Dave Humm is the answer to the trivia question of "Who was Bob Devaney's last quarterback and Tom Osborne's first quarterback." I first came into contact with Dave when I was doing interviews to promote a fund raiser
