Oct. 4, 1913

Strong line play was a pleasant surprise as Nebraska opened with a 19-0 win over Washburn in the mud in Lincoln.

Oct. 18, 1913

A 12-yard pass from quarterback Max Towle to end Gordon Beck late in the third quarter provided the only touchdown (shown in photo) as Nebraska upset Minnesota 7-0 in Lincoln. A fourth-quarter thrust by the Gophers reached the Nebraska 10 but ended with a fumble. Nebraska also turned back repeated Minne­sota threats in the first quarter before a 60-yard punt by the Cornhuskers’ Warren Howard erased the Gophers’ field-position advantage.

Jim Thorpe is second from left, top row, in this photo of the Carlisle team that appeared in the Omaha Bee several days before the game. It is probably the 1907 team, however.

It was a big deal when Jim Thorpe and the 1908 Carlisle Indians came to Lincoln in early December.

Though not yet an Olympic hero, Thorpe was a budding legend on the gridiron in his second season with the Pennsylvania school. The Indians were gaining a mystique by going toe to toe with the top programs of the era — and often coming out on top. In October, they battled the season’s mythical national champion, Penn, to a 6-6 tie.

In some circles, they were derided as a de-facto professional team. Nebraska’s faculty, in fact, protested the late addition of Carlisle to the schedule. “The school, the faculty charged, had gone crassly commercial,” wrote the Omaha World-Herald’s Frederick Ware in a 1940 history of NU football.

But fans weren’t about to protest. Anywhere from 2,500 to 5,000 of them showed up on a cold Wednesday afternoon at Antelope Park, the Cornhuskers’ temporary home field for the season, to see how Nebraska stacked up against coach Glenn “Pop” Warner’s squad.


NOTES: About 50 American Indians from the reservations of Nebraska and South Dakota came to Lincoln to see “the vaunted redskins from the east,” the Omaha Bee reported. During the game, “many of these Indians, together with the subs of the Carlisle team, huddled together along the north side lines, wrapped in colored blankets, until it looked like a real Indian pow pow.” ... The game was the Indians’ ninth in a row away from Carlisle. Their final home game of the season was in September.
Here's a cleaner version of that picture, claimed by ExplorPaHistory.com to be the 1908 team.



Dwight Eisenhower played against Thorpe in 1912 when Army hosted Carlisle.  He later said, "Here and there, there are some people who are supremely endowed. My memory goes back to Jim Thorpe. He never practiced in his life, and he could do anything better than any other football player I ever saw."
So Thorpe, who was born near what is now Prague, OK, played for Carlisle in 1908 and in 1912.  He dropped out of school for awhile after his father died.

Here's the 1911 Carlisle team photo.  Jim Thorpe is 3rd from the right, middle row.  Pop Warner is of course in the back row.

People would sit on the embankment to the top left and watch games for free until 1981 when that end was enclosed.  Folks could also watch from the bridge lower right (when it was constructed), when I was a student they charged a bit to stand on the bridge.  That bridge traverse a valley that separates older North Campus (liberal arts, law school) and South (STEM, pharmacy, etc.)  I have hoofed it across that bridge many times because we only had 15 minutes between classes and Germans was in extreme north campus.  The field orientation if E-W which is fairly rare.  There is a small creek that runs under the field.

Well, I suppose we could play that game, but I'd think the answer in this case is obvious.  This is a more recent view.

I figured that was it.  But didn't you go to UNC also?

Yeah, I went to UNC also, I forgot about that.  I saw exactly zero football games in 4.5 years there.
