The toughest fraternity to get into on Nebraska’s campus is the one reserved for Husker quarterbacks. There’s only one way to get there and only a handful of new members every few years.
Deputy editor Erin Sorensen takes you inside that fraternity, a group that now includes an NFL head coach, in the March 2019 issue of Hail Varsity.
“I think that when you look at the quarterbacks in general, the former quarterbacks are usually the first ones to try to find you when you get to campus and say, ‘Hi, how are you doing? I'm here for you, anything I can do to help,’” Heisman-winner Eric Crouch said of the brotherhood built by being behind center on the biggest stage in the state. “I remember doing that to several quarterbacks at Nebraska while they were playing, by making sure I made myself available and let them know, ‘This is a special group and we got your back. Whatever you need, reach out any time.’”
We also spend plenty of time in this issue on the first half of spring football at Nebraska, breaking down some early lessons and sharing a photo essay from practice. Editor Mike Babcock, in his back-page column, looks at the remarkable success of track and field coach Gary Pepin. Derek Peterson and Jacob Padilla break down the women’s and men’s basketball seasons, and recruiting analyst Greg Smith evaluates the Huskers’ visitor list through the early part of spring.
