I moved to eastern Iowa in 2009 for 3 years and then realized that I actually missed hearing about Nebraska. I never change sports teams, but this is the one exce...

Re: Nebraska Football 2017

I will say this...it was nice having the tickets so cheap for the Husker game vs Ohio St. I got to take my daughter to our first game. We got tickets on the 10yd line near the tunnel in row 7 for only $25 each. They were great seats. Wish the product on the field at least seemed to care. Overall, we...

If you throw out the games at Rosenblatt with over 9,000 people, the average attendance would have taken a huge hit. For most Royals games at the Blatt, they probably only drew 2-3,000.
