    "There is no end to the plan and the clue, the hunt and the thirst. The motors are drumming, the leather leggings and the leathers coats wait...out to the stars we go." - Carl Sandburg.


    No passage describes the hunt and the thirst for a Big 12 Title and living up to Bo Pelini's "standards" better than this poem, Leather Leggings in the Pulitzer prize winning collection, Cornhuskers.

    The collection of 100 poems about the everyday life, dreams and hopes of the people of Nebraska was published in 1918 by Henry Holt and Company.


    Sandburg was a historian, poet, and folk singer about life on the prairie. Cornhusker shows how well he knew the people of Nebraska, their intense optimism, and undying loyality. We have held this fierce tradition in Nebraska for nearly a century.

    “The long sand is gone and the talk is stars. They circle in a dome over Nebraska.” -- Carl Sandburg


    From the book, Cornhusker, this is a phrase from the poem "Sunset" published in 1915. Nearly 100 years later, this describes the feeling of being in Memorial Stadium at night looking at the stars with the State Capitol in the distance.

    "The red ones...the long ones in stripes, and each of the little black and white checked ones. Keep them: I tell my heart: keep them another year, another ten years; they will be wanted again. They came once, they came easy, they came like a first white flurry of snow in late October. Have a red one...have these yet a year, yet ten years." -- Carl Sandburg.


    This is from the poem, "Films" in the Pulitzer prize winning collection, Cornhuskers. The collection of 100 poems about the everyday life, dreams and hope of the people on the plains was published in 1918 by Henry Holt and Company.


    Sandburg was a historian, poet, and folk singer about life on the prairie. Cornhusker shows how well he knew the working-class people, their intense optimism, and undying loyality.

    “I am a brother of the cornhuskers who say at sundown: To-morrow is a day.” --Carl Sandburg.

    This is from the poem "Prairie" published in the collection titled Cornhuskers in 1918 by Henry Holt and Company. The collection is over 100 poems and won Sandburg a tremendous following across the United States as a man with the "prairie voice."


    Husker Locker is a sharing place, a community. We call it "Big Red Soul." We share the entire spirit of what it means to be a Fan. Carl Sandburg's poetry captures this hope and excitement. The poety endures nearly a hundred years later as it paints a true feeling of what it means to be a "Cornhusker!"
