On any given workday, any little thing might send Steve Smith?s thoughts spinning back to Saturday?last Saturday, Saturday two weeks ago, Saturday two years ago, back into the thrilling minutiae of game day?until reality reminds him: this is not how well-adjusted adults act. Steve Smith is not a well-adjusted adult. He?s a Nebraska football fan, and this is his rollicking account of what it?s like to be one of those legendary enthusiasts whose passion for the Cornhuskers is at once alarming and hilarious. ø A journey into an obsessed Nebraska fan?s soul, Forever Red immerses readers in the mad, mad world of Cornhusker football fandom?where wearing the scarlet-and-cream Huskers gear has its own peculiar rules; where displaced followers act as the program?s ambassadors, finding Cornhusker subculture beyond the pale; and where the team?s performance can barely keep pace with its followers? expectations but sometimes exceeds their wildest dreams. Blending wit and insight, Smith?s story of twenty-plus years following the team takes readers back to memorable game moments from 1980 to the new era under coach Bill Callahan, offering the uninitiated and the fellow fanatic alike a window on the world where fantasy and football meet, where dreams of glory and gritty gridiron realities forever join.

Since becoming the Nebraska women’s volleyball coach in 2000, John Cook has led the team to three national championships, seven NCAA semifinal appearances, and the nation’s top winning percentage in women’s volleyball. In Dream Like a Champion Cook shares the coaching and leadership philosophy that has enabled him to become one of the game’s winningest coaches. Growing up in San Diego, Cook acquired his coaching philosophy from his experiences first as a football coach, then as a student of the sport of volleyball on the beaches of Southern California. After a stint as an assistant volleyball coach at Nebraska, he returned to Nebraska as head coach in 2000 and won the national championship in his first season. Even with a bar set so high, Cook saw at Nebraska’s tradition-rich program the potential for even greater growth and success. He decided to focus on higher expectations, training, motivation, goal setting, and other ways to build the strongest teams possible. In Dream Like a Champion Cook shares the philosophy behind Nebraska’s culture of success and reveals how he’s had to learn, evolve, and be coached himself, even in his fifth decade as a coach. With openness and candor he delivers insights about his methods and passes along lessons that can be used by leaders in any field. Cook also shares behind-the-scenes anecdotes about Nebraska volleyball moments and players—and how he coaches and teaches his players about life beyond the court.

Set in a beautiful but economically devastated Pennsylvania steel town, American Rust is a novel of the lost American dream and the desperation—as well as the acts of friendship, loyalty, and love—that arise from its loss. From local bars to trainyards to prison, it is the story of two young men, bound to the town by family, responsibility, inertia, and the beauty around them, who dream of a future beyond the factories and abandoned homes. Left alone to care for his aging father after his mother commits suicide and his sister escapes to Yale, Isaac English longs for a life beyond his hometown. But when he finally sets out to leave for good, accompanied by his temperamental best friend, former high school football star Billy Poe, they are caught up in a terrible act of violence that changes their lives forever.

Brook Berringer, quarterback, proudly wore #18 as a Nebraska Cornhusker. During the fall of 1994, he burst into the national spotlight. In a run of eight games, after Tommie Frazier went down with a blood clot, he led the Big Red through the heart of the Big Eight schedule. He started seven of those games, finished the other, played with a deflated lung, was undefeated, and had his team poised to play for the national championship in the Orange Bowl against a powerful Miami squad. For eight months then, controversy boiled about who would be the starter for Tom Osborne in the fall of 1995. When Frazier was chosen, Berringer became the best-known backup quarterback in America. Many fans were amazed at the grace and poise by which he accepted his demotion when Frazier was chosen over him as the starting quarterback. Then came April 18. Four hours before Brook was to speak at the Annual Fellowship of Christian Athletes Banquet in Lincoln, the plane he was piloting crashed and burned in a hay field. The crash killed him and his hometown friend, Tobey Lake. Fifteen years ago, his mother along with Art Lindsay wrote "One Final Pass" which became a bestseller and inspired thousands of football fans that searched for meaning behind Brook's untimely death. This edition includes new stories since the book was published. It includes new material from Tom Osborne, Turner Gill, Ron Brown and many other football players and Husker fans that were impacted by Brook's life and death.

"Welcome to midnight, my fellow NiteowlsÂ?Â?? No one would ever suspect that responsible, ugly-sweater-wearing Ingrid North is the incognito radio deejay known only as Niteowl. Finally a high school grad, she can't wait to get out of her tiny hometown of Steadfast, Nebraska (population three hundred and forty-seven) to chase her dreams. Thankfully, her three best friends-Billie, LD, and Micah (who she is definitely, absolutely, not in love with)-are more concerned with spending one last epic summer together than finding out where Ingrid slinks off to every weekend. But for that one glorious hour every Saturday night, Iggy shucks her own skin to become Niteowl-a infamous and daring deejay with the answers to everyone's love life but her own. There is one caller in particular-Dark and Brooding-whose raspy laugh and snarky humor is just sexy enough to take her mind off the fact that Micah is rapidly falling for a Mean-Girls-worthy nightmare. But when Ingrid lands an interview in New York City for the internship of a lifetime, her secret life begins to unravel. It's her chance to follow her heart, but she'll have to leave everything behind-her ailing grandmother, her friends, her radio show...and a chance at her very own happy ending. Torn between her dreams and her home, Iggy begins to realize that to get what she wants, she has to give up the things that mean the most to her. But letting go could lead to a summer of sunflowers, rockstars, and the show of a lifetime. And Iggy might just find that her real life begins when Niteowl goes off the air.
