    My dad has a song from back when he played and I'm trying to find it on youtube, but can't.

    Anybody hear this one...


    In 1971 Nebraska got the score.
    Now we've got a tougher Army than we've ever had before.
    That year the Huskers were number one you know.
    This year will be the Colorado Buffaloes.

    We're gonna husk the huskers, skin the tiger and the cats.
    Preasue the cyclones from the state of Ioway.
    We're gonna hang 'em coyboys and 'em jayhawks down in kansas.
    beat the Oklahoma Sooners much sooner than they think!

    We hit the field hard and brought lots of brags.
    We grabbed ourselves a husker and we knocked him on his ass.
    We filled their heads with bull, thats all that you can find.
    And when we crossed the goalline the huskers lost their minds.

    We're gonna husk the huskers, skin the tiger and the cats.
    Preasue the cyclones from the state of Ioway.
    We're gonna hang 'em coyboys and 'em jayhawks down in kansas.
    beat the Oklahoma Sooners much sooner than they think!

    Well heres to Eddie Crowder, our coach of the year.
    The one behind the buffaloes, the one that you will fear.
    You better pay attention and watch the final gun.
    For the buffs of Colorado will then be number one!

    We're gonna husk the huskers, skin the tiger and the cats.
    Preasue the cyclones from the state of Ioway.
    We're gonna hang 'em coyboys and 'em jayhawks down in kansas.
    beat the Oklahoma Sooners much sooner than they think!

    My guess is this is to the tune of that Johnny Horton song? Love the lyrics BTW.

    Battle of New Orleans? I was singing it in my head to the Beverly Hillbillys Song but you may be right.
