Corn Flakes: Sam Foltz – An Example By Which To Live

Friday was such a carefree day. Everyone was looking forward to Big Ten Media Days. We decided we’d post our Unabridged Q&A with our Northwestern site. Today, I’m not really sure what to say. It is fortunate that we don’t have to go through this very often. Losing someone so young is never easy; you’re left wondering what they could have accomplished with all of their tomorrows ahead of them and suddenly there are no more tomorrows. It sucks even worse when that young person...

The Unabridged CornNation Q&A on Nebraska Football in 2016

Last weekend, InsideNW sent the CornNation staff a few questions to answer for their preview series. The team set down and put down their thoughts about the 2016 edition of Nebraska football, and sent it back to the InsideNW team. Apparently, it wasn’t what the purple people were looking for. We found their post on Monday…and recognized a handful of our thoughts made it into their preview. (Actually, a “handful” is being a bit generous.) After the team got Cobby out of detox, we decided...

Huskers Picked Second in Big Ten West in 2016 cleveland.com Preseason Poll

Flakes Is Live From the County Fair

Would you like a funnel cake to go with your Husker news? We take our weekly look around Husker Nation, laugh at the Big 12, and tell you why to delete a lot of your apps. Sorry for the late serving of Corn Flakes. Today is entry day for our county fair and I am in full 4-H mom mode. All the vegetables, photos, jelly, and dried herbs are entered. The chickens and calves are on their way. Of course it is supposed to be...

The Big 12 Expands While The World Ends

Big 12 media days have come and gone, leaving the conference in a 180 degree directional switch from whence they started. The Big 12′s position was that something bad would happen to Baylor and that the conference’s expansion plans were put to bed for the time being. Furthering the Baylor position, Tuesday, Dennis Dodds wrote that Baylor’s relationship with the Big 12 was “strained, potentially beyond repair”. Berry Tramel of the Oklahoman wrote about Baylor from the Big 12′s perspective, stating that the conference would...

Husker Women’s Basketball: Offseason Summary

The Nebraska women’s hoopsters saw a lot of change this offseason, but is it a cause for hope? The Nebraska women’s basketball team looks more different than usual since last April. Between the coaching change and subsequent impact on recruits and transfers, this will be a difficult season to prognosticate. Let’s dive in anyway and take a look at Jill’s uneducated guesses…. Coaching Staff Gone are Connie Yori and her assistants. Britney Brown is now an assistant at TCU. Ashley Ford landed an assistant coach...

Illinois Fighting Illini 2016 Football Preview

Over the last year, Illinois has led college football with the most surprising coaching changes. Everybody knew last summer that Tim Beckman was on the hot seat, but what was surprising was that Beckman didn’t even make it to the opening game. Yes, one week before the season began, Beckman was dismissed following an investigation into player abuse. Offensive coordinator Bill Cubit was named interim head coach, which was a logical move. Much less logical was removing the “interim” tag at the end of the...
