Big Red Cobcast: BTN’s Mike Hall Drops Some Knowledge

The Cobcasters talk to Mike Hall about the state of the Big Ten, Husker Power and the SEC hype machine. It has been a long week. A crazy week. A fruitful week. Long story short, it has been a… week? So many things have changed. We start the first ever play off in college football. We have a new head football coach and he’s announcing a staff that we know less about than we knew him. Abdullah and Bell are almost gone. We’re headed to...

Bo Pelini Press Conference: A Live (and Uncensored) Running Diary

Bo Pelini is now a Youngstown State Penguin. Here are Pat Janssen’s thoughts, in real time and uncensored. I finally got around to watching the YSU-posted video of the Bo Pelini press conference introducing him as the Youngstown State head coach. First rate work by that Penguin staff. The play-by-play:0:00-3:51: Three minutes and 51 seconds of press standing around waiting for YSU. Because who needs editing when you can listen to someone from WYTV bitching about having to cover a house fire the previous night?3:51:...

Multiple Reports: Bo Pelini Is Indeed Taking The Youngstown State Job

We went through this last week. Well, this time, multiple sources are reporting it, not just one. You may remember last week when FootballScoop.com reported that former Nebraska Cornhuskers Head Coach Bo Pelini was going to accept the job at Youngstown State University, his hometown school. Well, everyone told them they were wrong… Just spoke w/ Bo Pelini. Denied reports of being offered or accepting Youngstown State job. “It’s all a complete fabrication of the truth.” — Thayer Evans (@ThayerEvansSI) December 10, 2014 So then...

Recruiting: Mike Riley & Staff Come Out Firing On Commits & Visitors This Week

Watching a new coach with a gangbusters attitude is something to behold. In the two plus seasons I’ve been doing the recruiting thing for CN, I’ve never seen a week where the staff of the Nebraska Cornhuskers have come firing on all cylinders. Then Mike Riley and Ryan Gunderson came to Lincoln. And WHOA. Now, Oregon State’s class wasn’t very good, even compared to Nebraska. Right now after a flip, OSU has the 61st class in the 24/7 national composite and 10th in the Pac-12...

Corn Flakes: All-Americans, Awards, Paul Chryst To Wisconsin?

2014 SB Nation All-America Team – SBNation.com We like college football. We voted together on the country’s best players. Come tell us what you think! Also, we collected the whole thing in a very pretty display. I voted. I couldn’t put a single Nebraska player at any position. It would have great had Ameer Abdullah not gotten hurt, along with Randy Gregory, but it wasn’t to be. I was disappointed that Tyler Lockett of Kansas State wasn’t chosen for either receiver or returner; I felt...

BTN And Nebraska’s Mount Rushmore – Who Did You Pick?

BTN had given us a list of 10 Nebraska players of legend, asking CornNation and its community to assist in selecting four of those players for Nebraska’s Mount Rushmore. BTN will reveal the four players on BTN live next Tuesday, December 16th at 5:00 PM central. In the meantime, some of the CN staff have made their choices and give you their reasons as well as another chance to pick...
