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!

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.

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.

I gave up our 4 season ticket a few years ago because of the deficiencies in the South Stadium and then they announced the renovations. Guess I made the right call afterall.

Far too expensive. Special seating for the rich is not fair to the majority of season ticket holders.

I don't think the half billion price tag to renovate a 100 year old stadium makes fiscal sense right now. There are also more economical ways to improve south stadium without completely tearing it down and displacing 22K fans for 2 years.

They were arbitrary plans. No legitimate schematic or even a mockup. Hard to back "we can't describe it, just trust us."

I think it is good to slow down the project and wait until we starting wiinning as then demand will significantly increase. Also wait until the economy is doing better and interest costs decrease. To me it is being good financial stewards of the Atheltic Department finances. Phases are good.

because I thought that this may not be a good time to be spending that much, when we haven't even finished the last project. I think our AD will have to be able to read the money people, and the times. I thought that Trev A couldn't live with that.

Compensation has always been tied to market value. These athletes are worth far more than they're being compensated, and that's been the case for over a century. Hence, they've been ripped off. I support salary, salary cap, and education on how to invest it in 401k style accounts.

It has to fair across the board, from Fordham to Alabama. one monthly stipend for everyone, not just scholarship players. There has to be a limit on how many players all schools should abide by. Determine the national budget and every school must contribute.

They should be students and NOT professional athletes. If they want to get paid they can go pro. Personally, I believe they should cancel all sports in public schools and colleges though I love our Huskers.

Put myself through school in the 70's. They are getting for exchange of their athletic prowess what I had to work and save for. The two summers after high school I drove alfalfa trucks 12 hours a day 7 days a week. EARN IT!

They already live better than most students. Free room and board, tutors, clothing, and actual education cost.
