About Me

I love all sports, but I especially enjoy watching college football. As a child who grew up on a farm in small-town Iowa, I am a lifetime Iowa Hawkeyes fan. I love the Hawks! However, I have lived in Nebraska for the last 20 years and my husband is a lifetime Husker fan. We are a house divided, but by default, I have become a follower of the Big Red. The Nebraska Cornhuskers are like a pesky younger cousin to me. They are always there bugging you to play them but when you finally give in they have no idea what to play. So too are the Huskers bringing hype every preseason, only to disappoint with losses. However, I still stand by them and I’m loyal to them as long as they aren’t playing my beloved Hawkeyes.
