Special thanks to: Trev Alberts for driving from Omaha to give such an excellent talk Grace Cathedral for the use of their facility Fleming Place Wine & Spirits for donating beverages...|

De-tasseling the Huskers, Episode 29: Thoughts on Moore, Baseball/Softball Postseason, More White Stripes?
|Greg and Brian talk about the weather in Oklahoma and Greg’s desire to hang up on people who call the radio station asking if it’s raining/there’s power/schools have snow days. Then the guys take your question: Should Nebraska adopt and play the White Stripes at home games? After that, we look into some bands and artist that fit the “red and white motif.” —–We interrupt this broadcast for breaking news from the NFL—- Brian gives Greg a brief overview of what happened when Nebraska faced...|

|ESPN.com Big XII blogger recently ranked his Top Ten Big XII players of all time, naming former Nebraska defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh the third best. It’s probably the correct choice, though frankly, I think there are compelling reasons to rank him higher. For what it’s worth, Vince Young was #1 and Ricky Williams was #2. Personally, I’d vote Suh ahead of Williams, though I think it’s probably a toss-up between Young and Suh. And given that Young pulled off the upset over Southern Cal for...|
|When the topic of Nebraska sports comes up, the national perception isn’t about volleyball, basketball, softball, tennis, gymnastics or bowling. That’s a shame, because every one of those sports is played under the Big Red banner, all by young women, and all have advanced to their respective sports’ Sweet 16 during this past athletic year. Yes, there is still a swarm of “I wish it was football season” tweets by Husker fans, but fewer than the nation or even the Nebraska fan base as a...|

The athletic department has yet to confirm the...|
|The Big Ten has released the 2014 conference football schedule, and what’s most noticeable is the absence of Michigan and Ohio State on Nebraska’s schedule. From the East division, the Huskers will play Michigan State on October 4th in East Lansing and Rutgers on October 25th in Lincoln. Aside from a non-conference game against Miami (Florida), it’s a rather lackluster home schedule. 2014 Nebraska Football Schedule Aug. 30 Florida AtlanticSept. 6 McNeese StateSept. 13 at Fresno StateSept. 20 Miami, Fla.Sept. 27 IllinoisOct. 4 at Michigan...|
