Cornhusker in MN

Hey fellow red heads. I am from Nebraska and just moved up north to NW corner of the cities. Anyone in the area like to listen to the huskers on radio and fish?

Lets do it this fall.

Go BIG RED

Hey, man. I'm down. I'm in South Minneapolis.

I wasn't able to find the games on the radio up here last year, but the way last season went, it turned out to be okay. Bo should at least make it interesting this year, and I'm pumped for that.

Joe Senser's on 494 in Bloomington shows all the games. On all the TVs. The whole bar is a sea of red, and there's often a small pep band in the corner, playing Dear Old Nebraska every time the Huskers score. It's like O Street on gameday, man. It's cool.

Welcome to the area, and Go Big Red!

I will remember that. I coached youth ball back in Lincoln for the past 10 years and last fall was the first time I was not in downtown Lincoln on game days. ( still hurts)

Sensers sound great. Keep in touch and we will hit the lakes when they are playing this fall. X-M now carries the big 12 so we can normally catch a game here or there.

Welcome fellow HUSKER fan. There are quite a few husker fans in Mn. I'm in Mankato. Didn't pick any games on the radio last season but you can get the free broadcast on Huskers.com come game time. Hopefully we have a better season than last. Enjoy MN. And welcome to the site. Its very addicting.

GO BIG RED!!!

Last year you could catch the games on 740AM in Minneapolis...pretty spotty reception however. I live in Andover now and I can get Husker Sports Nightly on Tuesdays usually.

GBR!

I never normally went to the games. Because they were much more fun to watch down on O street or from someones nice chair. But Now that they are not on TV every week. I guess we should start going again. Tailgating will not be the same when I have to actually go into the stadium.

I see a few guys on here from Anoka county--We will have to pick a game on TV up here and a bar, and turn it red one saturday this fall.

Born a Minnesotan, raised a Minnesotan, will die a Minnesotan... but will be a Huskers fan for the rest of my life til I die...

I have two 27" TV in my room... and during the season, one tv is always showing the Huskers game when its televised up here... Dont care if anybody dont like it... my tv... I say so!

Been deaf since I was born... so listening to radio for Huskers game isnt an option at all... unless Im with someone who's hearing and willing to relay to me whats going on...

Its usually a tough situation for me when the Huskers play and Im able to go muskie fishing... but usually when its a formidable opponent, I'll grin and bear with staying home to catch the game...

Last season was a complete disgrace... the fan base was in chaos... there was disgrace everywhere... Nobody recognized the Huskers... Pederson didnt care what Nebraska football was all about, rather being selfish by trying to establish his own legacy... biggest mistake he ever did... Second mistake was the firing of Frank Solich and hiring Bill Callahan (what a friggin' JOKE!!!)... Gotta admit that this thin ray of sunlight finally broke through the DARK cloud with his firing... then the same ray of light started to get bigger with the hiring of Osborne... then few more started to break through with the firing of Callahan... and now the UNL campus is full of SUNLIGHT with the hiring of Bo Pelini...

I know that the 2008-2009 season will be whole lot better than the 2007-2008 season regardless the turnout... The diehard Husker in me is saying they're going to the bowl... the reality side of me is not to expect too much out of this team seeing how its still "Callahan's team" but still I have those wholehearted faith in Bo Pelini that the tradition is making a comeback...

I still can remember the day I became a die-hard Huskers fan as clear as if it was yesterday... I was at Kansas visiting my ex-girlfriend back in 1992-93... I was a Sophomore in high school... and on the night right before I left for home, Nebraska was playing Florida State for the National Championship and Nebraska just played their heart out... if they didnt miss that field goal, they would be the National Champs... but they lost 18-16... but that game pretty much was a stepping stone to the 3 National Championships in the next 4 years...

I also can remember the 1995 National Championship game... Basically everybody I knew were rooting for Florida... they were basically putting down Nebraska in front of me... telling me how the Huskers wouldnt even stand a chance against the Gators, their so-called "Fun-n-Gun" offense... how Spurrier is better than Osborne... I could go on and on with the blahh blahh... but the end result was those priceless expressions as I rub their nose in and collected on my bets with them... What was sweeter was that I'd be the only one cheering amongst them... rubbing their nose in... especially after the infamous Frazier 75yd run for TD... sweeeeet!!!

GO BIG RED!!!!

I was born in Sioux City, but grew up in Nebraska. I've loved the Huskers since birth. My Dad went to UNL during '70 and '71, and I was there in '95. I'm a Minnesotan now, but I still bleed Red.

Yes, last year was a tough year... but all teams go through that. We'll be fine. I think we got a good coach, a good staff, and plenty of good players. I don't expect the Huskers to set the world on fire, but I do think we'll see a more competitive team. And that's all I can ask for.

My favorite moment in Husker history was during the 4th quarter of the '95 Orange Bowl. Corey Schlesinger put two into the end zone to take the lead, and then, with like 2:00 on the clock, it was up to the defense to protect the lead. First down got Miami a minimal gain... and the next three plays were a sack, another sack, and an interception. I was out of my mind, and my Dad was going nuts. Finally! I remember hearing Kent Pavelka on KFAB... I thought he was going to have a heart attack. After all those years of "almost," the trophy was headed to Lincoln.

Oh, yeah, the Fiesta Bowl the next year was pretty cool, too...

I agree with both games. But the last few years have been tough. Bo should do a pretty good turnaround. Might take a year to get some meat in there he likes.

Love the memories....this year will be better for sure but my expectations are still realistic. Bo needs to focus on the offensive and defensive lines and then work outward from there. The big 12 north may be wide open so who knows, if things fall right we could make it to the Big 12 title game.

I miss Kent Pavelka!

I think you could find descent prices for a non hot game pretty reasonably. I think face is 60-80 bucks so you should be able to go. If your ever up for going to a game. You can always go and tailgate hit the crowds before the game. Anyone I ever met looking for tickets has always found them. And usually on the cheap. Just becuase the sea of red sells out every week, does not mean the stands are full. lots of red watchers watch from the bar or the couch.

Dude, it is totally worth the trip.

It's unbelievable. I mean, I may be a little biased here, but I can honestly say that it's the best place in the world to watch a football game. Doesn't matter who they play. Lincoln is a cool town to visit, too. And, since it's not that far from Omaha, you could check out the Henry Doorly Zoo and make it a trip for the wife and kids so you don't feel all guilty about dragging them down there to see a football game. It's a win-win.

Here's an idea. An FM get-together for the husker fans of MN.

Oh yeah and it would be held at Memorial Stadium. I'm in, who else.

Go "skers"

Sounds intriguing... I might be in.

Failing that, we could just all get a booth together at Joe Senser's in Bloomington and watch a game, then hit the water. Or, fish on a Saturday morning, and make it to Senser's before kickoff.

Fishing, burgers, beer, and some quality college ball. I could see that becoming a regular thing.

Here is a list of all the home games for the 08 season with ticket prices. If any of you are interested let me know and I can do some research. I do believe there is a section in the north end zone for Minnesotans for Nebraska. But it really don't matter where you sit cause its a sea of red everywhere in the stadium. Its been a while since I've been to a game so I think its about time I get back to one.

    • What I have ben enjoying is watching the fourth line on the ice and sometimes they are the best line out there. Playing late in games and giving the top two lines a rest may not seem like a  big deal now but come crunch time that rest just might make the difference. I picked the right time to put the cable back in I think I have only missed one Wild game this season plus I am watching a lot of umd hockey!  As for Sutter I think he is having a banner year, great plus/minus rating. he is scoring a few goals which is another plus and in the Chicago game when he traded sides of the ice with his d partner he pretty much shutdown a tiring Kane. Best time to watch Wild hockey is halfway through the game, they seem to find another level to play at.
    • 23 IN THE BOAT HERE ON HIDDEN BAY again today. Sunshine Ray’s extended forecast is calling for rising temps and sunshine every other day. This would give us a warm melt for the snow that has gathered on roofs and the Lodge should get busy. I can see a lot of fishermen out on the ice and more then a few will be taking off time from work to get out there. As a mater of fact I am at the Lodge this morning. Was feeling pretty good with lots of energy so I thought I would come in and do some ordering and touch base with some of our suppliers who make daytime deliveries.   First thing I noticed when the wife dropped me off was a couple of old lawn mowers outside. When I came in I found Tiny working on a small carburetor. I had to talk to him and I found out that somehow we, the Lodge have become a drop off spot for old, gently used lawn mowers. I then remembered the tongue in cheek commercial I had made a few weeks ago. Looks like someone was listening and dumped their junk on us. Tiny did say he thinks he can take the parts from the two and get one running. The Lodge needs a push mower so maybe this will work out afterwards. Tiny also mentioned that someone dropped off a case of thirty weight oil, Gus took that he said.   Luge run is up and running, with all the snow we received last week and the use of Nytelyter front end loader a run was built. With a sunny day followed by a cloudy day we should be able to ice it down and it will last the rest of winter. Well Skinny and Hammering Hank will be doing that. I did get word from Ranger Rick that he had an accident yesterday and will be laid up a few days. He was out checking on the trails at Samantha Lake when he slid the Ranger he was driving down a hill and hit a tree. He cracked the windshield with his head and hit the tree with his hip or part of the Ranger. He is suppose to go see Dock Berrium today but is dragging his feet and everything else trying to get out of bed. The pine tree is still down on Trappers Trail but a detour has been put in around it. Ranger Rick was headed to the tree and the chain saw and other stuff might have been part of the balance problem with the Ranger.   Christmas tree drive is done here at the Lodge. Not as many trees collected as last year but they have all been taken to the Resort to be disposed of. Actually they will be tied in bundles, weighted down and dropped into the bay come spring melt out. Elmer and DOC and Vic will do it and will keep their new crappie spots a secret. Of course if you want to find out where they are all you need do is take a ride in Vic’s mail boat and check the seats. He writes down all his good fishing spots in pencil on his wood bench seats because he does not know how to read them on his handheld GPS unit. The idea of drifting over some of the brush piles sounds like a good idea about now.   Forty may happen on Thursday which is a lot better then minus 20 I will have a day spent at the hospital doing tests. Last years tests are now all bench marks and I have to repeat them now a year latter to see how much damage has been done. Hoping I come out pretty good but I have a lot of work to do before fishing season comes this year. Launching a boat by myself may not be something I can do till late in the season but I sure would like to ride along with Chuck come June. So from a cloudy day here at the Lodge at Lake Iwanttobethere
    • They make a rail that when it slides closed it drops about 1/4". I have these and they are nice for driving down the road but my 3 and 5 year olds can't open them up!   For the doors, I used an rv type style clip. To open you have to push in and then they pop open.
    • I can't imagine a worse job on earth than trying to wrangle a house full of 2-4 year olds with a baby or 2 thrown in for an added challenge...but thankfully someone wants to do it.   Around here the absolute lowest I've seen at an in home day care was $140/week and that was for any age, price didn't change based on age.  $175 is pretty common (again no price change for different ages, my 3 year old and 8 month old cost the same) but have seen it up as high as $225 and all of them were basically at capacity. When you get into day care centers they you can be looking at $300-400/week and the price does go up for infants and babies.    It seems a lot of people get into doing day care when they have their own kids.  They stay home with them to save daycare costs and then bring in other kids to bring in some income and then it goes from there.  Ends up being a pretty decent solution as long as the other person can find a job that provides the benefits. 
      If she does do in home day care just make sure to keep that in mind when buying a new house.  A friends wife does daycare out of their house and he hated their old house because the house layout required daycare to essentially be in the middle of their main living area so he'd come home from work and be in the middle of day care trying to relax with a beer. They ended up moving so that they could get a house that had a good basement set up for a daycare so they could more or less contain it to one area and not let it infiltrate the rest of the house.    
    • Tons of fish on Mille Lacs. LOL right. Must had a lot of people with u for a ton on Mille Lacs.    
    • Up here its not that much but at a home daycare you are still looking at 120 for a toddler 150 for an infant... This way we can save 1700 bucks a month! plus make a few dollars on top.. She was a teacher in a daycare while attending school.. She has a knack for a bunch of kids.. Me not so much. Thanks for the advice nofish!
    • It's that time of year again. Bassmaster Fantasy fishing started up today. I created a group again named HSO Bass. Password: mnbass Feel free to join. 
    • I have both.  The drawer slides work well, but they do open up sometimes going across the lake.  I don't think I've ever had a cabinet door open, though.
