Go Big Red by Michael Babcock

Nebraska has enjoyed thirty-six consecutive winning seasons, made twenty-nine consecutive bowl appearances, and won five national championships, including three in the last four seasons. During that time, the Cornhuskers have had just two head coaches, Bob Devaney and Tom Osborne. <BR>Without question, this is the golden era of Cornhusker football, and Go Big Red is a celebration of that indisputable fact. It is much more than a trivia book-- it goes beyond the hefty and comprehensive media guides published each season by the Nebraska Sports Information Office. <BR>The book covers Nebraska football in a way no other publication has, with personality profiles, anecdotes, and original research, as well as questions of fact and trivia, some of which will test even the most devoted and knowledgeable Cornhusker fans. <BR>Some things youll remember. There is a section devoted to the best of Broderick Thomas, the loquacious outside linebacker. And there are also some things you wont remember, or things you might not have known. Can you name all of the assistant coaches on Osbornes first staff in 1973? Can you list Nebraskas starters for the 1941 Rose Bowl game? Do you know how the Blackshirt tradition began? <BR>Devaney was a master storyteller, and the book includes a humorous story or two of his. The program became a haven for walk-ons under Osborne, and the book includes an all-walk-on team. Though Nebraska is enjoying its greatest successes now, Cornhusker football was king long ago. And the book offers insight into that past glory, achieved by the likes of Jumbo Stiehm, Ed Weir, and Guy Chamberlin. <BR>All-American Trev Albert, the Butkus Award winner in 1993, has expressed themeaing of Cornhusker football in the introduction, which is an integral part of the books experience. Reading Go Big Red isnt the same as sitting in Memorial Stadium, awash in red on game day. But its the next best thing.
