    kNU article

    These fans are pathetic.... there are sooo many gems in there I can't list them all.

    Husker players being subjected to more ridicule
    BY RICH KAIPUST
    WORLD-HERALD BUREAU

    LINCOLN Nebraska football captain Zack Bowman showered, wandered outside Memorial Stadium on Saturday and thought he couldn't feel any worse about the Huskers' loss to Texas A&M.

    He was wrong.

    "People will come up and be like, 'You suck!'" said Bowman, a senior cornerback. "To me, to the team, they say it to anybody. Anybody associated with the football program. It's bad.

    "You see them at the games. They'll come up behind the bench and just be like, 'Y'all suck,' or, 'How can y'all wake up in the morning?' I'm dead serious, man."

    So much for the warm, fuzzy feeling after Tom Osborne replaced Steve Pederson as athletic director last week.

    At least two other players mentioned that they could hear an assortment of catcalls from fans while sitting on the bench during games. The more vitriolic comments seem on the increase after embarrassing back-to-back home losses to Oklahoma State (45-14) and Texas A&M (36-14).

    Bowman and senior receiver Maurice Purify said Tuesday that, at least in their experience, the simple booing of a month ago has given way to more bitter and pointed remarks and traveling to Texas on Saturday might not be a bad thing for an embattled team.

    "I'm just kind of angry at the fans who come here," Purify said. "They put on their Nebraska shirts, sweaters, their hats . . . and then when we're down by seven or 14, they come down to the sidelines and say, 'You guys suck. You guys take your N's off your helmets.'

    "If you're going to support us when we win, why can't you support us when we're losing?"

    Re: kNU article

    KC sports radio was talking about that yesterday. Callahan needs to pull a Gundy on the fans. You can yell and blame the coaches all you want because they are getting paid and it is there job. You can't be doing that to players. Recruits hear this and are going to start to run the other way.

    Nice read! That's great! I hope recruits were sitting nearby! Couldn't happen to a better fanbase/team... well actually I can think of one other.

    Callahan doing such wouldn't have any impact...if anything...it would make things worse. Right now, he doesn't have all that much credibility in Lincoln.

    I am wildly amused this is happening to the Huskers, but do feel bad for those players.

    Well cripes, this isnt the NFL where the guys get paid to play. Most of these kids want to play because they love the game and the school.

    wait, I thought Nebraska sports fans were the greatest, classiest in the country? Well, at least thats what they all told me about themselves when I lived in Neb.


    I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around the banks will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.

    Chuck Lidell: I paint my toenails with pink and black polish. Problem is, I get more paint on my toes and on the carpet than on my nails. Any advice?
    Maria Sharapova: Don't you beat up other guys for a living? I don't know how to answer this.

    Corso and Herbstreit always talk about that on GameDay, too. There are bad apples in every fanbase, I've seen my fair share of idiot Cyclone fans, too.

    Re: kNU article

    I just can't conceive of ISU fans doing this to our players. Especially when they are out there making an effort.

    It'd certainly make me think twice before going there if I was a recruit that had to decide.

    How sad is it that you WANT to go on the road?

    The recruits are already bailing out. Their top RB switched to Notre Dame yesterday and their top QB is now looking at Mizzou, which is where his mom wanted him to begin with.
