    Many others have unsuccessfully tried and failed, to create an historic, hype anthem. This is the true Anthem for the Nebraska CornHusker football team "GO BIG RED" this Anthem tells a story about the past and the present. Johnny "The Jet" Rodgers personally gave it two thumbs up.

    This year Nebraska Cornhuskers celebrates five decades of straight sell-out college football games, from November 3, 1962 'til September 01, 2012 - fifty years. It's hard to look at the numbers without being in awe. That's a long time. We've collectively gone through so many changes in this country that it would be cliche' for me to start a list, so I'll spare you. Instead I will present to some and introduce to others the hottest Husker Anthem in history, "GO BIG RED".

    When Nebraskans are collectively talking about what's happened over the length of this sell-out streak, they're talking about a lifetime of history, triumph and champions. Soon they will be talking about this hit "GO BIG RED"

    Once every year I go out to a Husker game. I live in Michigan and so it gets pretty tough to see myself at more than one game per year. When Nebraska joined the Big Ten and the divisions were announced, I knew what game I would be attending each year. I circled October 29, 2011 on my calendar the day they announced this season's schedule. This day was my favorite Husker experience to date.

    I began to follow Kenny Bell last year when he was named the scout team MVP. He is very fun to follow in social media. He talks about the preparations he makes for the "zombie apocalypse" among other extreme ideas. He proudly displays his love for his hometown in Colorado. Most importantly, he responds to his fans. If you talk to him, odds are he will talk back. That means the world to me as a fan.

    I asked him before the trip out to Lincoln if I could meet him and get his autograph. He had responded with one word: "Absolutely" he said.

    I found out where I could meet him at the stadium on gameday and he came out to a crowd of supporters. There were probably 30 people circled around him at any given time for the next 15 minutes. I patiently waited for the kids to get their chance to meet him before I would take my turn. He stood there for at least 40 minutes before I even saw a chance to get near him. He happily signed every autograph that was requested. He took pictures with any fan that asked him to. He hoisted children onto his shoulders for family shots.

    He thanked each individual fan for coming out to the game.

    I thought it was my job to be thankful! He expressed sincere gratitude to each person that he met that day. I was floored. He was not looking for a way to escape a burden, he was happy to be there meeting his fans!

    When I finally got up there to meet him, he knew who I was. He recognized me as the guy from michigan and thanked my brother and me for driving so far to watch him play. He asked how long it took us to drive and seemed floored that we would make such a trip to see our Huskers play. I asked him to take a picture with us while putting up his signature touchdown move, "the 303." He let us get a picture with him and again thanked us for supporting him.

    The first thing I did when I got home was to post it to my facebook page. I was excited to show my friends! I tagged him in the picture with myself and my brother. He commented on the picture again thanking us for driving so far to see the game!

    Kenny Bell is truly a gifted athlete that represents our football program as good as anybody. The gratitude that he shows to his fans is unmatched by anybody that I have ever met. He made this husker fan's day with his actions.

    Kenny Bell has set the new standard for being a great Nebraska Football player!
