    KC Star on Nebraska fans

    Here is a wonderful article on the husker fans. He pretty much sums it up beautifully.

    Re: KC Star on Nebraska fans

    There are large chunk of Husker fans that never attended UNL. We see same type of people at Iowa. In most cases these are the fans that always obnoxious towards opposing team or their fans.

    Re: KC Star on Nebraska fans

    I'll admit that I never really got the whole thing about how bad Nebraska fans are. But after spending a lot of time in Western Iowa recently, all I can say is that they are extremely annoying. Way worse than Hawkeye fans and that's saying something.

    I'd have to take your word for it as I've never experienced time in western Iowa but I really struggle to believe there could be a fan base worse than Iowa. Good lord I've even experienced their obnoxious fans in NW Arkansas.


    Never argue with an idiot. They will bring you down to their level and then beat you with experience.

    Re: KC Star on Nebraska fans

    Article was ok, but the sker fans proving his point in the comments are much more entertaining.

    For other good reads on the "True Husker Fan" - I suggest this website. I know it is no longer updated, but it hits the nail on the head. Behind enemy lines - A Huskerh8er's view of the world

    Re: KC Star on Nebraska fans

    Being from Council Bluffs, Nebraska fans have always bothered me more than Iowa fans.

    During football season my family pretty much refuses to go anywhere in Omaha if they're playing. Sitting in a restaurant listening to them ***** after every play is horrible.

    Now, on top of that they all have to defend going to the Big 10. Even when the topic isn't brought up by anyone else. Hit 'em with a "No, you left because you can't beat Texas." All hell breaks loose.

    Imagine Iowa fans, but an entire state of them.

    Grew up in NW Iowa, have family in Cedar Rapids area and Omaha area. Husker mouth-breather is way worse and more common than Hawkeye drooler. I would say the average Husker cult member is probably a good 30% worse than your average Tavern Hawk. So you get 30% more idiocy, bluster, and arrogance per purchase.

    Re: KC Star on Nebraska fans

    I grew up as a Husker fan. I loved the Huskers as a kid. As soon as I stepped foot on the ISU campus, I was converted to the good guys. I have lived in Omaha since graduating about 7 years ago. Nebraska fans are much worse than Iowa fans.

    I absolutely hate the attempted slam on a fan base that none of them went to their school that they root for. ISU could only hope to somebday have a following of non-ISU alums like the neighbors to the east and west. Non-student fans is what we should strive for.

    And unlike Iowa fans, when they threaten you with physical harm, they will follow through.


    Without reading the story, I believe it can simply be summed up as 'Nebraska fans are ********.'

    After reading it, he has some points, but he completely misses the point by adding those last two sentences.

    The Big XII does not want Nebraska back. The attitude isn't even 'don't let the door hit you on the way out'. It is more of, 'I hope you never win ever again, and if you do, let it be because of steriods and let your program get the NCAA death penalty.'
