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.

    • Just realized that I had a brain fert on the canadian bacon I made. brined it for 10 days in pops brine recipe but I forgot to put a T of the cure in. I have already eaten about a 3 inch chunk. The rest has been in the freezer for a week. Is it a big gamble to eat it?? 
    • Yeah you should have known better lol.  Trying to have a conversation with a guy who is butthurt over a business that is getting tax subsidies because his isn't.  However if his was offered one he would be jumping at the opportunity.     #hypocritesandfrauds
    • Hey Kaepernick if you weren't so busy taking a knee and being angry you would see I already answered this question.  
    • I would put the sump on its own circuit without a GFI.  Leave the backup on a different circuit. I'd also add another or bigger battery to the back up. Since your water table is so high it might be a good idea to have an alarm on the backup. I'd bet there is some sort of app that can alert your smart phone. Breakers can become "weak".  One having been tripped from an overloaded circuit probably more to blame then age though.  Or it was bad to begin with. There are some counterfeit breakers as well so buy at a reputable suppler. Yes the pump can wear. Both the motor and the pump wear out. Having a float stick and pump run continually isn't good for the pump. What type float do you have?  If its a tethered ball type IMO they are going to fail sooner then later because they can get hung up on its own cord and pump. Of coarse the float on a rod should be checked and cleaned to be sure it can't get hung up.  
    • Have YOU asked the DNR any of those questions?     Has anyone here reported any vehicles they've seen crossing the state line with whole deer?     When we we buy our licenses there are regulation books available, and inside there is a handy section that points out NEW regulations for the year.  Should we not read at least that part?   I agree the new law would be better served if there was some heavy patrolling at the high volume state crossings, but with limited resources they sure could use some help from us.   I'm not a blind DNR defender here.  But I don't buy the conspiracy theory and won't blame them EXCLUSIVELY for all that ails our deer herd.  We do plenty of damage on our own.   Since deer and elk farms seem to be sources of CWD, why are they allowed to exist any longer?  Hint: The DNR doesn't have the authority to determine the existence of those farms.   Is there really only one scapegoat?
    • We came home from Thanksgiving to find that the circuit breaker that the sump pump is on had tripped and the basement floor was wet. We're in the process of replacing the carpet now. We have a pretty high water table and the sump pump runs a lot. I do have a battery backup pump, but once that battery dies, game over. I've been trying to figure out why the breaker tripped. The only other things that were running on that circuit while we were gone were the charger/controller for the backup pump, the water softener (very little amp draw) and the freezer. All the lights were off. There was a storm here with heavy rain and some snow while we were gone and someone suggested lightning may have been a factor, but why that would affect only that circuit escapes me. I've had the breaker trip twice since. The first time I had all the lights on and a fan running. The second time also lights on, running the drill press and shop vac. I've done that many times before with no trouble. Now I'm watching it like a hawk and we're nervous about being gone for any length of time. Questions: 1. If the float switch stuck "on", would the pump eventually overheat and trip the breaker? 2. Would the pump draw more amps as it ages? It's a high-quality cast-iron pump, probably 12-14 years old. 3. Do circuit breakers get weaker with age? I'm also considering getting an electrician in here to run a separate circuit for just the sump pump. I don't want to go through this again.  
    • Seasons On The Stream
        Alpha trout at head of feed lane. Maybe in fast broken water Subordinates all over hole but not close to alpha. Cast into top most part of fast funnel. Alpha waiting part way down the skinny feed funnel. Best to hit fast water to hide the splash. When wading, wake control a large factor here. Stay out of water if you can. Make first cast count or will get only dinks in this hole.

      Bigger trout from area wintering at bottom of slow water near the fast water. Not in fast water. Subordinates chased out of hole by bigger trout. Best to hit fast water to hide the splash. Cast into top of feed funnel and slow retrieve so presentation will get down to trout sitting on bottom just back from the end of the fast water.

      Trout extra wary on sunny no vegetation winter outing. Don't slap hole with line. Stay out of the water when attacking hole. Will be a one fish "only" hole due to water clarity and zero vegetation in hole. Any smart fish will spook when one is battled and drug through this clear non-vegetated hole.
    • Good question, why didn't they find any more?  Did those two infected deer parachute in?  Were they dropped by a helicopter?  I find it fascinating they could get as far as Lanesboro and they only find two out of thousands.  Like I said, they're bad at conspiracy.    Policing the borders?  How about a billboard, a radio ad, or a twitter campaign?  How about having the highway patrol pull over anyone with hooves or antlers sticking outta their truck box or laying on a flatbed coming across the border on the interstate?    My wealth and land ownership shouldn't disqualify me from questioning the DNR.  It used to be a staple of a free country to question your government.  Somehow now it's more important to kneel before the all knowing DNR and take whatever they want to shove in our mouths?  If this is real science and a real mitigation effort, let's have a discussion about it.  If the DNR wants to stop this spread, why are they not welcoming with open arms feedback like mine when it comes to import enforcement, and an effective PR campaign?  Cause guess what fella, lots of deer got hauled home from all kinds of places infected with CWD by uninformed folks that are going to cut up those critters and throw the brains and spinal cords out in the woods at home.    So yeah, this is either a giant hoax, or the DNR has no idea what the hell they're doing. 
    • I just checked on the fans that I bought, there 4.7 inchs sq and 1.25 thick. I thought they were 5 inch thick but I was wrong. They are 110v and I think I will put one inside on the bottom plate and see how it works. And I like where you have your fishingstar.
