    In towns between 5,000 and 50,000 population in Nebraska, high school football and basketball games are regularly broadcast on radio. Baseball, very seldom, maybe legion ball in the summer.

    In fact the Franchise that is now the Sacramento Kings likely holds the record for the most moves. They started as the Rochester Royals, and then moved to Cincinnati. When they moved to Kansas City, they changed their names to the Kings (to avoid confusion with the Baseball team). Because of problems with dates, they shared the team for a few years with Omaha, (The KC-Omaha Kings) until moving the whole operation to KC when Kemper Arena was built. Finally they moved to Sacramento, and were only a few months away from moving to Seattle until a local deal was brokered. Of course, they have had little success at any location!

    Actually, The Bears won the NFL in 1963, and shortly thereafter picked up Butkus and Sayers. While they each went on to individual greatness, the Bears were never a contender during their careers.

    There’s been occasional talk of putting a “multiplier” of some sort on the private schools in Nebraska to move them up a class in competition, but it hasn’t happened yet. I Nebraska’s largest class (Class A) it wouldn’t do much good, as Creighton Prep finished first in Coross Country and Tennis and 2nd in Football (Lost to an awesome Omaha North team) during the fall sports season.

    As best I remember from 40 years of reading this strip, Milford is in the only state that still doesn’t have a playoff (or playdown) system for football. Only for Basketball. In the earlier Berill days of the strip, you made the playdowns if you had a winning record. Now, who knows?

    The Bryan Bears are another Omaha area HS. This is really interesting because the Omaha World Herald dropped Gil several years ago.

    So Milford is playing suburban Omaha high schools now? (Milford NE HS is a lot smallwer than Millard North)

    First Round Draft Choices who have won a super bowl and still playing: Eli Manning (2) Ben Rothlesburger (2) Peyton Manning, Joe Flacco, Aaron Rodgers.. Drew Brees missed the first round by 1 pick (First pick in round 2). Other than Brees, Brady and Wilson the first round has accounted for 7 of the last 12 Super Bowls.
