Cornhusker reinforces the "Nebraska is nothing but cornfields & farmers" stereotype. Huskers isn't my favorite but it is like Buckeyes in that when it's said, nuts isn't actually what comes to mind

To be honest, it's what I use, but we are both, no need to pick one. Maybe for the spring game, if both sides are fair. one can be the Cornhuskers, and the other Huskers, winner gets the nickname for the season.

Corn is what made us unique, and famous. Even today, media uses Cornhuskers as a milestone to beat.

I like what coach Frost said. We are not ashamed of where or who we are. We are Nebraska in the middle of cornfields. We are the Nebraska Cornhuskers. But Huskers can be uses sometimes.

If preceeded by "Nebraska", then "Cornhuskers" is appropriate. Keith Jackson calling a game where he always used "Cornhuskers" is legendary.

Love this name. It's unique in the world of college football. Huskers is okay every once in a while, but I truly dislike how it has become the "official" name. NU needs to change it's branding!

It is what it is. Husking corn was long, hard and tedious work. It yielded survival of those who feed us.

The original. The proud fullness of the state's number one product. The Nebraska Cornhuskers, it should always be.

We were always the cornhuskers. We were the dominant college team for the last half century... as the cornhuskers. We are huskers only because because we husk the corn.

I am a little tired of everyone shortening names. If it is Rosenblatt, it isn't the Blatt. I could go on, but it is and always will be the Cornhuskers.

It does not make a big difference to me. But being old I did get use to "Cornhuskers." Plus I actually used a glove and hook to husk corn.

Cornhuskers has a charm to it that transcends college football history. It evokes vivid memories of players on the field throughout the decades. Close your eyes and remember.

It's at home and I think we will be understanding our new system and coaches by then.

Purdue is deeper into the first season of a new staff. And it is at home where the crowd is more of a factor.

Later in the season. The mini game is #1 and we'll have some kinks to work out. BUT I think we win both. With good coaching we'll finally put Mini in our rear view mirror.

In short order, Coach Rhule and staff put together a top 30 class. That's a great result for the short time they had to work with. My only pain point was losing Earnest Hausman to Michigan through the transfer portal.
