divided loyaltiesBy Carolyn Lee
The Imperial Republican

    A former Chase County resident and her husband usually root for the same football team, but not on Jan. 1. That’s when Jana Sherer, daughter of Shari and Doug Barnard of Lamar, and husband Richard, will be on opposing sides.
    Jana is “all about Nebraska football,” being born and raised in Nebraska. Richard attended Clemson in the mid 80s, and the couple lives in Irmo, S.C.
    “This is the first time I’ve had to go against my wife,” Richard said. “I pull for Nebraska but not on Jan. 1.”
    The couple has season Clemson tickets, and Jana usually cheers for them, also.
    The couple will be sitting on the 25 yard line on the west side of the field at the Gator Bowl in Jacksonville, Fla. when the game begins at 11 a.m. MT.
    You may be able to spot them. They’ll be the ones with half-Nebraska, half-Clemson shirts.
    Their predictions for the game? Jana said that, “As a Cornhusker person, I think Nebraska will win, 45-38.” Richard disagreed, saying the Tigers will win in a close one, 37-34.
