"The first time I learned what it meant to be a Husker was running into Memorial Stadium as a redshirt freshman. It was daunting as 80,000 dressed in red stood in an almost reverential way and saluted their Huskers. I couldn’t feel the turf. My knees were weak. I understood this wasn’t our team. This wasn’t even Coach Osborne’s team. This was Nebraska’s team!" —Nebraska All-American Trev Alberts, from the forewordFrom the Inside Flap:
The numbers are impressive: five national championships (and counting). A staggering 43 conference championships. Three Heisman Trophy winners. Dozens of All-Americans. Countless statistical milestones.
But the numbers alone don’t do justice to the impact that Nebraska football has had and continues to have on its legion of fans. What takes place within the storied confines of Memorial Stadium is more than simply a game; it’s a way of life.
Two-time All-American and Academic All-American rush end Grant Wistrom puts it this way: "No matter where I go, where I end up, this place is always going to be home to me. If I could do it all over again, I wouldn’t be wearing any other colors but the red and white."
Game Day: Nebraska Football is a celebration of that bond that all Cornhuskers share and of the decades of gridiron excellence that have inspired it.
