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.

OU is susceptible to the long passing game. NU pulls out some stops on offense. D keeps it close. OU by 3.

Spencer is a guy who’s easily rattled (get it?) and figures to throw a few picks if pressured. I still think we lose but Huskers can move the ball through the air and force a few TOs to keep this game within 14. Small chance they even pull out the W

Sooner's lose one game mid-season. Why not this one. Hopefully no one showed the Sooner team what Frost and company did to them in '96 and '97. We should play well for 3 quarters then their top guys may take over.

It's likely at some point in the game we'll be down a score or two. Does this team have the mental toughness to fight and mount a comeback or will they fold? I just don't think the team has that kind of confidence in themselves yet.

I can’t believe Nebraska fans have fallen so far that they discuss if they can’t beat the spread and not if they can beat OU.

No way! IL lost big to an unrated Virginia team. Sooners will do whatever they want to do regarding score. Tired of us ‘rebuilding’ when we can’t beat teams that out recruit us every year. Don’t those teams have to rebuild? Simply put we are either terrible recruiters or terrible developers.

Big REd is playing well below the Sooner's level. I just hope they can keep it at the 21 points and not get buried in a ten td avalanche.

They are still playing pretty bad. Offensive line is still not blowing anyone off the ball. Defense is still not getting a pass rush. Secondary is not as good as advertised. Hopefully there will be improvement.

We are not there yet. We put too much pressure on an improving defense. If NU could some how score 40 they might have a chance at the end of the game but....I'll call it 48-27 OU.

It's just a distraction, but it is the last thing we need right now. The timing of this news is extremely suspicious. Focus on taking care of business on the field and this will be ancient history in a month .

Frost is doing everything he can to try to get this program going again. That even means blatantly cheating and trying to cover up his cheating. This isn’t an oopsie, it’s desperation. Same with trying to run away from the OU game. He knows he’s in trouble and he just cost himself his buyout.
