    I'm a transplant that's been living in Omaha for awhile (I know, shameful, but job/bills etc...).

    I was given 2 tickets in the East Stadium (facing hopeful afternoon sun) row 21 section 2 about the 15 yard line north end. The thought of sitting with my son amongst the cornholes doesn't sit well. So I'm asking if anyone has two tickets they won't be using in the good-guys section or if you know of someone possibly interested in a trade. It's a long shot, but thought I'd ask.

    I would think you would be okay over there, the older folks usually are in those rows and down due to their length of time as season ticket holders and donations.

    This will be my 4th game in Lincoln and if you at least a section away from the students it seems to be just fine. That said the overall caliber of fan behavior is getting worse, even in Lincoln.

    It's because those old fans are vanishing away and being replaced by younger, prick fans. They'll be just like any other fan base in 15 years.

    Thanks for the replies everyone. Yeah, I'll be content sitting over there I suppose.

    Mods, please feel free to delete this thread. Then delete the fuskers.

    I knew there would be a time for this!



    I just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed reading the article you did on Philip Bland, Ken Bell ... It not only brought back so many great memories for me of Philip's playing years at Nebraska, but also reminded me of what a great choice Philip made to become a Husker. As a player and alum of CU, I developed an almost rabid animosity toward Nebraska (that will happen when you haven't beaten a team for almost 20 years running), and I still vividly remember handing the first Husker recruiting letter to Philip and saying something along the lines of 'Well, we know that ain't gonna happen.' (Luckily, I learned to write better than I speak). But the truth has a way of overcoming even the most deep-seated of prejudices, and that is what happened to me. Once you actually sit down with people like Ron Brown and Frank Solich and get to know what the Huskers are all about, the prejudice melts away and is replaced by a tremendous amount of admiration and respect. Not to mention humility and pride - that they considered my son to be worthy to wear a Husker uniform and be a Blackshirt. And then, when he could no longer suit up, the way he was still welcomed as part of the Husker family. Pretty darned good stuff. Nebraska stands for so many things that I admire, and I'm so glad Philip ignored me and chose to come to Nebraska. Hard to believe I can type this, but I can't help it. GO BIG RED!! Richard Bland, Longmont, Colorado

    with all due respect.... I went to 6 games in Lincoln and only had an issue in 92 and 02. The problem in 92 was due to some poor behavior by students. In 02, it was 2 drunk fans about 40 years old but several of the Nebrassholes apologized for their behavior to me.....

    It won't be a problem I am sure.....

    Just like a visitor to a Philadelphia Eagles game.... we welcome visitors with open arms....
