HuskerPedia.com is a website which is much more focused than Husker.com, because the moment you click onto it you can see that this site is not trying to do too much, it is focused on the University of Nebraska's football program and the tradition which that entails. The main University of Nebraska web site is far too concerned with being politically correct enough to give information about the school, classes, programs, news, administrators, and every single sport which the university has; however, HuskerPedia is pretty much all about FOOTBALL. It's just awesome to open the site and see a page with about 10 RED hot links ready to take you to articles about the football team. They also do have a side bar on the left hand side which offers information about volleyball, where the two-time national champions are represented well, and also about basketball (for some odd reason), and also baseball (which has been improving every season). Still, the focus is always going to be football on this site and because they have prioritized it gets more in-depth and really gives the hard core fan something special—information at an advanced level. Okay, let's talk graphics, this site falls behind in the graphics department. In general the site flows before a cream colored background with light red Husker stencil shadowing just barely visibly.
This is a little too simple for my taste. Herby Husker is pretty colorful, standing above the season schedule in his traditional ‘okay' pose. Yet, although not particularly striking, there is one visual feature which really got my Husker Heart pumping Big RED blood: it's a countdown clock which gives an up to the second reading as to how long we have to wait before kickoff of the next game. This is genius! It really shows the mindset of a true member of the Husker Nation! When is kick off!? What else matters? I'll tell you what else matters, the heading which looms just above the countdown clock which proudly states: The Five Time National Champion Football Team. If you want very current articles, lots of facts and information tidbits that a true fan of the game would be thinking about, you should go to Huskerpedia instead of Husker.com. Both sites are truly magnificent if you're a fan of the big red, but I personally prefer the simplicity and football focus of this site. Go Big Red!
