3 Nebraska Players That Are NOT Nebraskans

•27 September 2016 • Leave a Comment

Michael Rose-Ivey, DaiShon Neal, and Mohamed Barry – heads up! You are in the process of learning one of life’s most valuable lessons. And, you’d better pay attention because opportunities of this magnitude don’t come around that often.

“It ain’t about you or your opinion”. When you are wearing the Scarlet and Cream, you represent ME!

Who am I, you ask?

Born and bloody-raised in Nebraska since 1950. A Boy Scout that attended games, sitting in the knot hole section (check out your Husker football history to find out what that was) before the nation knew how to spell Devaney. The son of the Husker’s ‘color commentary’ guy on the radio from the late 60’s throughout most of the 70’s. A Navy and Vietnam Veteran standing watch on USS Mullinnix DD-944 in Norfolk, VA, the last all-gun destroyer in US Navy history, during the Game of the Century between Nebraska and Oklahoma (again, look up your Husker football history to find out when that was). I guy that cried like a baby when Nebraska beat Miami for the national championship – my youngest son invited all his friends over to the house – just to watch me cry.

A simple hard working guy that remembers when we were know as the Cornhuskers not simply the Huskers. A working man, that remembers back in the day when the uniforms were ONLY two colors – scarlet and cream, no tunnel walk, no theme song.

Coach Riley doesn’t even get it. But Devaney did. Tom Osborne did. Frank Solich did. No coach post-Solich got it.

Simply stated – we are Nebraska. 350 sellouts should prove that to everyone.

You are getting a full ride to play – for US. Nebraskans. Nothing more, nothing less.

Suggestion: Go outside of the East stadium and read what it says…

Those are not just words, that is Nebraska.

There is NO place like Nebraska. And bloody-hell, you’d better never forget it.

AND, I have a solution:

  1. Get out of that 49ers uniform, and
  2. Get off your bloody knees, and
  3. Run for public office…

…You have an even chance of being better than what our choices are today.

Oh, and as always, drink one for me,

The Day The Music Died: Original Lynyrd Skynyrd Drummer, Robert Burns Jr Dead @ 64

•5 April 2015 • Leave a Comment

Though he left the band in 1974, drummer Robert Burns Jr., one of the five musicians who founded Lynyrd Skynyrd, was around when they recorded Sweet Home Alabama, Gimme Three Steps and Free Bird. Not bad, for only 1 year…

You are free at last.
