Nebraska Football 2015 Spring Preview: Linebackers

Nebraska’s move to the Big Ten has created an ongoing issue with roster depth at linebacker. In the spread-happy Big XII, linebackers weren’t needed much when facing offenses putting four or five receivers out wide. Four years later, you would think that linebacker depth would still be a problem, but transfers and dismissals combined with injuries have meant that Nebraska still doesn’t have the depth needed to face Big Ten offenses. From last season, Nebraska loses weakside linebackers Zaire Anderson (senior) and Courtney Love (transfer)...

Mike Riley Pre-Spring Practice News Conference Recap (March 4, 2015)

Mike Riley held his first football news conference prior to the start of spring practice, and talked about the process for this spring. Most notably…splitting the team up into two different groups for practice so that the coaches can work with smaller groups. Mike Riley said he doesn’t want instances where 22 guys are running a drill and 100 players are watching #Huskers — Rich Kaipust (@RKaipustOWH) March 4, 2015 Tom Osborne used to run two sets of stations in his practices, splitting the coaching...

2015 Spring Football: Defensive Line Preview

Who fills in for Randy Gregory? What to make of the young folks? Time to take a look. When you look at the Defensive Line of the 2014 Nebraska Cornhuskers, it’s a group that is fair to say came from a laughing stock 3 seasons ago to a formidable area come this past season. However, with the return of greatness comes a need to restock when the players that helped you get there leave. There is a ton of youth coming into the fray in...

BYU Beach Bowl Brawl Could Result in Suspensions for Season Opener Against Nebraska

Brigham Young head coach Bronco Mendenhall met with his team on Monday to start spring practice and wrote one word on the whiteboard: Discipline. That’s the result of the ugly ending of the Miami Beach Bowl, where punches were thrown by both teams in an ugly scene. Mendenhall told the Deseret News that “10-ish” players will be disciplined for their actions, but added that any possible suspensions would not be announced until the end of August. The Cougars open the 2015 season in Lincoln against...

Corn Flakes: Mike Riley, Tom Osborne and Internet Porn

The Omaha World Herald ran an article last week with this headline: Mike Riley gets advice from Tom Osborne: Run the ball You don’t even have to read the article to get the gist of the article. Mike Riley meets with Tom Osborne, and talks about the Blackshirt tradition, recruiting, and offensive philosophy, which, of course is RUN THE BALL just simple as that. Tom Osborne says Run The Ball. It’s the same as internet porn to a Nebraska fan, except that everyone would publicly...

2015 Nebraska Spring Football Defense Preview

The most frequent complaint about Bo Pelini’s defensive scheme was its complexity; that it was difficult to learn and kept young, talented players on the sideline. Its complexity lead to players thinking too much instead of playing football, which lead to players making mistakes, which lead to them fearing making mistakes, which lead to lack of confidence, which lead to embarrasing blowouts, which lead to Bo Pelini being fired. Exit Bo Pelini, rumored to be a defensive guru. Enter Mike Riley and Mark Banker, his...

Sunday Afternoon Gamethread: Baseball vs LMU, WBB vs Ohio State

The Huskers look to pick up a pair of wins on the afternoon. After pounding out a season high 15 hits, the Huskers will look to take the series from Loyola Marymount on Sunday afternoon.

This afternoon, the Huskers will send sophomore Derek Burkamper to the hill to face Tylor Megill of the Lions. Burkamper pitched well last weekend, getting through six...

So What Will Nebraska’s Offense Look Like in 2015?

Then, the head man himself, Mike Riley, sat down with the Omaha World-Herald and Lincoln Journal-Star to share some pre-Spring Practice impressions. First, to Space Coyote’s breakdown on Riley. Riley’s preferred offensive attack is reminiscent of...

Nebraska tries to even the series, after failing to get their bats going. The Nebraska baseball team will look to even their series against the Loyola Marymount Lions after falling in game one of the series 4-1.

The Huskers failed to take advantage of their opportunities last night, while the Lions connected on a pair of two out rallies. Nebraska will send senior left hand pitcher Kyle Kubat to the mound....
