Letters: On elections, war, the city and Cowboy fans

— I am a life-long Nebraska Cornhusker fan from Lincoln, Neb.  Over the years I have attended football games at a number of fine universities across the country, including many in the Big XII Conference.  Throughout these trips, most of the hometown fans have been cordial, but some have not.

This last Saturday, my father and I made our first trip to Stillwater to see our Cornhuskers play the Oklahoma State Cowboys.  Within minutes of our arrival we were greeted warmly with handshakes and sincere “welcomes” from virtually everyone we met. 

As the day progressed, we were overwhelmed by the grace, warmth and overall friendliness of the OSU fans.  ... to all the people we met in and around Boone Pickens stadium, we have never been so impressed with a fan base outside of Lincoln.  Even after the game that didn’t go the home team’s way, everyone continued to be wonderful hosts!

I purchased several OSU t-shirts at the stadium and will wear them with pride.  With Nebraska’s move to the Big Ten Conference next year, I am saddened by the fact that it will be unlikely Nebraska will play OSU in Stillwater again anytime in the near future.

I also regret waiting so long to make my first trip to your fine city.  With that being said, I will have a new favorite team in the Big XII conference next year!  I hope you win them all!  From the bottom of our hearts, we thank you for a truly wonderful experience.  GO POKES!

Lincoln, Neb.

Thanks from Husker fans

Just a letter to let people know what a great place Stillwater is.

This was our first trip here and what a good one it was. We went to NU vs. OSU football game. We walked through campus and visited a few bars Friday night.

Had a great time and everyone was so welcoming. We met lots of nice people throughout our stay.

We've been to lots of different towns and stadiums and this has to be one of the best. Thanks for a great time our only regret is since leaving the Big 12 we won't have another opportunity to come back. OSU should be proud of their fans!
