Pay Homage to the Equestrian Art

by Nancy Heim-berg

Horses are a beautiful species that many don't take the time to learn and truly understand. The depth of the horse's beauty and mind is often something that only few devote their life to truly embrace. This Equus Film Festival is one of few events that allows those individuals to display their works of art and literature. 

For three days film makers of all sorts are able to feature their videos, commercial, educational films and much more to open the eyes and hearts of those who have not had the opportunity to truly enjoy horses from their point of view. The Equus Film Festival truly empowers those involved to share and highlight the true depth and vibrant history that horses have in human culture. 

The Equus Film Festival runs from Thursday, March 30 through Saturday, April 1 at Marcus Midtown Cinema. The schedule is available on the event page. It is held in conjunction with the 2017 Longines FEI World Cup Jumping & FEI World Cup Dressage Finals Omaha

Nebraska Football Season Preview

by Nancy Heim-berg

Nebraska football began this past weekened when the Cornhuskers played their first game against the University of Wyoming. Looking ahead, the final game is scheduled for Friday, November 29th against the Iowa Hawkeyes.

The Cornhuskers are coming off of a strong 2012-2013 season, in which they were 10-4 overall. This team won all of their home games with the exception of one game that was played against the University of Wisconsin Badgers. They also made an appearance in the Capitol One Bowl on New Year’s Day, where they lost to the University of Georgia Bulldogs by a score of 45-31.

Coach Bo Pelini will head the Cornhuskers for the fifth straight year this season. In each of the past four seasons, the Cornhuskers have lost exactly four games. They’re hoping to change that record this year, and they have several key players returning to help them meet their goals.

Among those coming back are running back Ameer Abdullah, offensive tackle Jeremiah Sirles and defensive end Jason Ankrah. The Cornhuskers also welcome defensive end Randy Gregory to their ball club this year. Gregory was rated the top junior college defensive lineman for the 2012-2013 season.

According to several sports analysts, defense will play a major role in how well the Cornhuskers do this season. The fact that most of the team’s defensive players are new could effectively work against them. Even so, they are expected to be one of the top contenders in this year’s Legends Division, mostly because the team’s offense is one of the best in the entire Big Ten conference.

Many are waiting to see how well the Cornhuskers fare against the UCLA Bruins later in September. If they hold their own against this team, they have a good shot at being undefeated as they head into November, where they’ll face tough teams such as Northwestern, Michigan and Michigan State. Their performance against these teams will largely determine whether or not the Cornhuskers are selected to advance to post-season conference play.

Nebraska Football - 2013 Schedule

  • Aug. 31st vs. Wyoming
  • Sep. 7th vs. Southern Miss
  • Sep. 14th vs. UCLA
  • Sep. 21st vs. South Dakota State
  • Oct. 5th vs. Illinois
  • Oct. 12th @ Purdue
  • Oct. 26th @ Minnesota
