Creighton knows better than to try to compete with fans for football in the Husker state, so it steers clear of football entirely and focuses on forming and building support for a relatively successful men’s basketball team. Other sports also perform well—the women’s crew team is known for its incredible hours out on the lake in the wee hours of the morning, and cross-country athletes put in lots of time perfecting their strides. But, besides men’s basketball, the only sport that seems to draw a lot of student spectators is soccer. Actually, in many ways, soccer seems to take the role football does at many schools—there are a few barbecues and beer gardens for the games. For intramurals, volleyball and flag football are popular. Most students seem to play on at least one intramural team, but if you’re not athletic, don’t sweat it—there are plenty of other activities to be involved with, or you can sit on the sidelines and cheer for your friends.
A lack of pro teams puts Omaha on the downside athletically, but Creighton soccer and basketball, as well as the wide intramural offerings and large student participation in them, is redeeming. And, while Creighton steers clear of football—the traditional undergraduate fall favorite—soccer provides a stellar substitute and keeps students native to Nebraska from feeling guilty for their Husker support. All in all, it seems that you can have what you want athletically in Omaha and at Creighton—you just might not find as many people joining you in spectatorship as in other places.
