Harrietta Rides Again: A Kearney couple keeps Husker history alive 13 comments
About 20 months ago I went absolutely nuts over a vintage Nebraska rug on eBay. By the time I was made aware of the listing the price was already out of my range so I saved the images, posted about this new entry into Husker logo lore, and hoped that Google would help Harrietta Husker live on.
A few weeks ago I learned that a few devoted Nebraskans were way ahead of me. I received an email from a woman named Deann telling me that her husband, Ken, had taken the image from that rug, licensed it, and was now producing t-shirts and bumper stickers featuring the logo.
Ken was kind enough to answer some of my questions regarding the history of Harrietta and the process of going from a good idea to a finished product.
Helu’s Health: Ask the Sports Doc 4 comments
At the end of Thursday night's game with Missouri, Husker running back Roy Helu came off of the field appearing to be a bit injured. Coach Pelini has since addressed Helu's health with his standard answer - "He's fine". But, since Coach has been more than a little reluctant to share injury information in the past and because other players sitting out practice and games have also been described as "fine", I'd rather dig just a bit deeper on this issue. To get some answers about this kind of injury, I sat down with BRN's sports injury expert, Doctor Bart Eastwood, and asked a couple of questions. Here is what he had to say.
