Fellow UNL Student,
The football team is fired up to kick off the 2005 season next Saturday against Maine at Memorial Stadium. We are looking forward to you and all of the student season ticket holders being at our home games throughout the year.
We have worked extremely hard in the off-season to make this a great year for the Huskers, and we are planning to have the type of season that our fellow students and all of Nebraska will be proud of.
The student section is the key to getting Memorial Stadium rocking on Saturdays. We need you to wear Red, get fired up and make it a little tougher on the opponent. Believe us, the home crowd at Memorial Stadium makes a difference and we know the students are the loudest people in the house.
Our team wanted to give the students a sneak preview of what to expect from your 2005 Huskers, so we decided to invite all UNL students to Memorial Stadium this Sunday night to check out our practice. The students who didn’t buy season tickets will get their invite tomorrow, but we wanted you to be the first to hear from us. Only UNL students will be there, so we hope you will come by and help us get ready for a great season.
The gates will be open at 6:45 p.m. There will be free hot dogs and Pepsi [free food is the definition of graduate school -- tdaxp], and a chance to hang out with your friends while watching a little Sunday Night Football—Husker Style.
Make sure you have your student I.D. and come to Gate 24 on the Southeast corner of the stadium. For once you don’t have to drag your backpack around campus (they wouldn’t let you bring it in anyway). You might even get a chance to hear from the two of us and Coach Callahan.
The team is planning a few new things on game-day to get the student section even more involved, and we’ll let you see that on Sunday. See you Sunday night and Go Big Red!
