The 16 Types of Husker Fans You'll Meet At The First Game

Sunday, August 23, 2015


The "Wouldn't It Be Crazy If We Went Undefeated This Year?" Fan:
They say it at the start of every season. You can't blame them for hoping. (also this is me.)

The Nervous Wreck Fan:
They can't eat, they can't sleep, their palms are sweaty and there's butterflies in their stomach. The start of a new season is just too much to handle. TOO MUCH.

The Biggest Husker Fan Fan:
Often starts sentences with, "No man, I'm definitely the biggest Husker fan." He has the tattoo, personalized license plate, red Husker basement complete with green turf flooring, and a dog named Herbie. And possibly a son and/or daughter named Tom.

The "Remember the 90s?" Fan:
Because if you don't, you should. This fan will tell you exactly where he was for every game and how he reacted to every play. He also has all the games on VHS just for those rainy days.

The "I'm Actually Just Here to Tailgate" Fan:
When it's time to leave the tailgate and head into the stadium they might resist. It's not that they don't like the actual game, they just prefer tailgating more. (also: this is me.)

GBR shirt found: here.

The Internet Troll Fan:
You know that annoying guy from the Husker forums? This is him in real life. Regardless of what you say, he's going to argue and prove that he's right and you're wrong.

The I Just Love The Huskers So Much I Could Cry Fan:
And they probably will at least once. Just so much love, things get emotional sometimes.

The "I Almost Played College Football at a Junior College So I Know Everything" Fan:
If you just gave him a chance, he could be our QB. Or our head coach. Or the ref. Or the cheerleader.

The Pessimistic Fan:
For every reason why the Huskers will be good this year he has four reasons why they won't. Sure they might win the first game, but what about the next? Or the next?

The I Haven't Stopped Drinking Since Last Night Fan:
Usually found in the North Bottoms.
Shirts found: here.
The I'm Just Here To Look Cute Fan:
Forget the score, how does their outfit look? Also who brought the selfie stick and where can I get one of those cheek tattoos?

The Screamer Fan:
If the screamer is seated behind you, next to you, or in front of you just leave the game now. This fan is not actually aware that no one on the field can hear him. Thus he will only get louder as the game goes on.

The I'm Just Here To Play On My Phone Fan:
Wait, there's a game going on? Wait, I'm AT a game???

The Scorned Ex Husker Fan:
Like an ex-boyfriend, but worse. He's so bitter about the heartbreak he's been through with the Huskers he's replaced his sadness with anger. He'll tell anyone who will listen why the Huskers are the absolute worst. But he's so emotionally involved still, it's clear he's not over it.

The I Miss College Fan.
Me.

And finally, the Let's Be Overly Nice To The Opposing Team Fans Because We Want To Prove We Are Indeed The Best Fans Fan:
All of us!!! I may be slightly exaggerating and just a bit bias here, but from what I've witnessed year after year since I was a kid attending Husker games, almost every Nebraska fan goes out of their way to make sure opposing team fans have an awesome experience in Lincoln, Nebraska.

Because GO BIG RED!!!

Which type of fan are you? And if I missed one, tell me below!

*In all seriousness, I want to thank each and every one of you who have supported my business and brand, Talk Herbie To Me. I've worked really hard to build this and establish my brand and trademark in the Nebraska community. 

So to everyone who chooses to purchase from the original creator, or "the little guy," thank you. It really does mean a lot.

  3. Right now, I'm kinda feeling like the Scored Ex-Fan where my Angels are concerned. They're throwing the season away and it's really making me mad.

  4. I love this & I've seen every single one of these fans at Badger games as well. Makes me giggle.

  5. Brother to the Screamer is the Stand through the Whole Game fan - because nothing proves your superior Husker loyalty more than blocking the view of the fans behind you.

  6. The hats that I can wear:
    *The Screamer (and The Stand-Through-The-Whole-Game).
    *I Miss College
    *Let's Be Overly Nice To The Opposing Team Fans Because We Want To Prove We Are Indeed The Best Fans

    And of course, with my hard hat and dancing, I think I'm in my own category :)
