University Makes Husker Bar Drop Name

Declaring their business "The Husker Bar" made perfect sense to the new owners of Barry's, but the bar owners forgot to check whether the University of Nebraska would mind.

That decision is proving costly now because the sports bar a few blocks away from campus is redoing all of its shirts, glassware and signage.

One of the bar's co-owners, Kevin Fitzpatrick, says he was surprised when he received a letter asking him to drop the Husker tagline at Barry's because there are so many businesses in Lincoln that use Husker somewhere in their names.

But Fitzpatrick learned that officials at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln don't want the school to be associated with a bar or restaurant.
