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.

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.

Give him time to see if he can figure out a winning formula here. It's not like anyone else has been successful. Not much to lose. It's too bad there has been so little success. I think Husker fans would be overly supportive of the program especially with some improvement.

Let's face it. With a few rare exceptions, Husker basketball has never been better than mediocre at best. Let's give Fred plenty of runway to turn things around. We certainly don't have much to lose (pun not intended).

Do you think Trev Alberts was correct to push for the coaching staff changes before season end?

It was right to do sooner than later

The defense has made progress. The offense not so much. The real problem is Frost's dedication to Martinez. Adrian is a great guy, but his minuses exceed his pluses.

The production was there from those coaches. Better to make the decision then, so you can still have a positive impact with recruiting.

If you are not going to make new hires before the end of the season anyway, what was the purpose in firing them now? It will be interesting to see how the offense performs, but I can't see this as beneficial.
