2015 Nebraska Spring Football Preview: Wide Receivers

As Nebraska transitions into the Mike Riley era, you have to expect that the Huskers will have the receivers to implement whatever offensive scheme Riley, offensive coordinator Danny Langsdorf and wide receivers coach Keith Williams want to run. That’s not something I’m sure could have been said after the last two coaching changes at Nebraska. (The best receiver in 2008 was Nate Swift, who actually committed to Frank Solich.) Kenny Bell may be off to the NFL, but that doesn’t mean the cupboard is bare...

Huskers Spring Football: Previewing The Running Backs

None of the returning RB’s are Ameer Abdullah. In 2015, some fans may find that to be an unforgivable sin at times. The running back position in 2015 will combine the arrival of a new staff and philosophy with the graduation of an All-American who rewrote a chunk of the Nebraska Cornhuskers record books at running back for the Huskers. It’s probably fair to say that this is as close to a clean slate as we will see at any position this season. At the...

Happy Birthday to Noted Nebraska Legend Dr. Tom Osborne!

We’re late to the party but we brought our own contribution to the celebration! Noted Nebraska legend Dr. Tom Osborne celebrates his 78th birthday today. It’s not really necessary to rehash the accomplishments of the college football Hall of Fame coach.We would, however, be remiss if we didn’t get him a card and a gift. What do you get the coach who brought three national titles to Nebraska though? We thought about a fishing charter, but then we remembered that we’re “internet media” and fishing...

Nebraska Football: Preview Of The 2015 Offense

Spring football is nearly upon us, and with it the real beginning of the Mike Riley era. Riley prefers a “pro style” offense; “pro style” being a pretty broad term. Thinking of the term “pro style” conjures an image of what we think the offense will look like. For me, “pro style” connotates the I formation, but the term can imply everything from signal calling to whether you think the quarterback will be lining up under center or in shotgun. What it should not imply...

Hawkeyes Defeat Huskers 74-46, And It Wasn’t Even That Close.

A terrible, terrible 1st half for Nebraska doomed their chances against the Hawkeyes Sunday afternoon. On a cold third final Sunday in February, we thought we had seen the worst that the Nebraska Cornhuskers could manage on a Basketball floor. And, with Legends Weekend coming around, there was a thought that Nebrasketball could muster up a challenge to the Iowa Hawkeyes. And then, they tipped off. Behind a wretched offensive output in the first half where the team put up 16 points while only shooting...

Huskers Baseball Split Doubleheader Against Brigham Young

The Huskers split a doubleheader with the Brigham Young Cougars on Friday afternoon. The Huskers lost the first game 8-3, before winning the second game in eleven innings 3-1. After jumping out to a 3-0 lead in the first game of the doubleheader, the Husker bats fell silent until late in the second game of the doubleheader. In the first game of the...

Husker Baseball Series Finale vs BYU: Gamethread

The Huskers go for the series win in the Saturday finale. After splitting a pair of close contests yesterday, the Huskers baseball team will go for the series victory this afternoon. Head coach Darin Erstad has shaken up his lineup, moving hot hitting freshmen Jake Schleppenbach to the top of the order, while moving down Austin Darby to the 8 hole. Erstad will be looking for more offensive consistency from this lineup, after yesterday’s struggles. Nebraska has scored more than four runs in a game...
