Awesome ...thanks brother for taking time with this. Great members and many interactions with them.
Yet you know what?
I dont like a damn one of em
I knew a Merle that worked in downtown Omaha and lived in Bellevue. Was the biggest fan on the street. When he passed away I never made a connection, but now I wonder.
Although it's possible that all Merles are good people, the Merle you mention is different than our Merle.
They do work hard to make this the best Husker site on the net.Truly appreciate all their efforts. I also thank all the posters on here for keeping this site so informative on all things Husker.GBR.
So at least eight of you were on this forum/site back when we were still good. That has been a while!
It is pretty amazing to ponder.
In 1999, Husker fans still mostly believed Nebraska would never not be good. And that '99 team was one of our best non-national championship teams ever. Finished #2 and #3 in the two polls. I remember reading a few years later that if the BCS calculations had been as they were a couple/few years later, Nebraska would have been in the national title game. The '99 team was loaded with NFL talent.
No way could anyone be convinced of what the next 20 years would bring.
Think it was 2001 0r 2002 when I started tailgating with huskerpedia.
Wish I had pictures
That's about how many people attended the first few tailgates.
I found HuskerPedia just after getting my first PC shortly after K. State tried to break Crouch's neck, right in front of the non-seeing ref and I was talking to a girl from Kansas(she was a J-Hawks fan) and she didn't believe me about the non-call. I went looking for a photo of the play, and there it was, Crouch's helmet turned some 180 degrees. I can't say for certain that the photo was on HuskerPedia, although I believe it was, it's how I found the site. Lurked for years and finally plunked down my $20's 5 years ago.
I agree, it's the best Husker site around. Thanks for posting HWM.
So true... and so sad. We had it all, and we p***ed it away.
It finally feels like we are on our way back, though there have been false alarms before. Hopefully we make it to the top.
I remember finding Huskerpedia back in 2003 when I lived in Colorado. I lurked for a while until finally joining the night after we got killed by Texas Tech in 2004. I thought that was the lowest our Huskers would ever sink and thought we'd be back to premier form soon. Boy was I wrong, but this fall will mark my 15 years on the forum. Wow, time flies!
I was here at the beginning as probably the longest lurker until I finally joined. Always read the articles and forums just kept telling myself that I left NE in 1975 and did not really have any earth-shattering related news to share so I did not join. Guilt finally caught up with me and I paid. Wish I did much sooner.
