Road to Nebraska Scholarship Campaign

The Northeast Kansans for Nebraska isn’t just a fun place to socialize with other Husker fans.  We are proud of the support our members have provided to students pursuing a college education at the University of Nebraska.  Since 2001, we have been able to provide 20 students with more than $16,000 in scholarships from money that our members have contributed.  Currently, our goal is to provide $1,000 each year to two students from northeast Kansas. Last year, the Northeast Kansans for Nebraska established the Road...

Wednesday’s Flakes: Nebraska QB Tanner Lee Placed On Unitas Award Watch List

The links are here for you to waste a Wednesday morning. Good morning everyone. Jill’s got things to do, and I am in charge of your Flakes this morning. Normally I would have been up earlier to do them, but it’s the Summer in Texas, which means it never gets below 78-79 degrees in the evening time. That’s fine and dandy for those that hate winter, but when you have a East facing bedroom, the cycle of heat and cold with the Air Conditioner kicking...

Nebraska Football: Fall 2017 Scholarship Chart

What does it look like now, and what does it mean for the ‘18 class? With Fall camp around the corner, normally I do a scholarship chart showing what Nebraska has where. With the recent news of Deiontae Watts & Elijah Blades deciding not to come to Lincoln, however, I’m bumping up the timing of this to now. Nebraska, quite frankly, has spots available right now to offer kids. It is at a number that, quite honestly, is not good. Here, as always, are the...

Nebraska 2017 DB Signee Elijah Blades Chooses To Go The Junior College Route

This is an odd story, but one where Nebraska gets the shaft in the end. There had been whispers throughout the summer that Nebraska DB signee Elijah Blades would not be coming to Lincoln. But, many folks held out that he’d be a “partial qualifier” and would be able to come to Lincoln and at least be out for a season and be good with being in Lincoln. Guess not. Starting with Greg Smith of Hail Varsity, and then with Blades himself talking to Bryan...

Former Nebraska Defensive End Eric Martin Arrested For Marijuana

Nothing much good happens in Arkansas when you’re speeding. There are better ways to spend a Saturday than to speed with weed in your car. Former Nebraska Defensive End Eric Martin found this out the hard way. According to this report, Martin was clocked going 64 in a 45 MPH area on Saturday afternoon. Martin was pulled over for said speeding, and when the officers started talking to Martin, the smell of marijuana came abound. After the officer got done calling a K9 dog, Martin...

Illinois Fighting Illini 2017 Football Preview

Was 2016 year zero or year negative-one for Lovie Smith at Illinois? First year coaches typically get a free pass for year one, but considering that Smith wasn’t hired until a month after signing day, there’s an argument to be made that 2017 is really Smith’s year zero. (Certainly the Illini’s 3-9 record in 2016, with a loss to Purdue, is forgettable.) One reason why Illinois struggled last season had to be quarterback issues. Wes Lunt started the first five games before being sidelined with...

Big Red Cobcast: Jones-ing For Some Good News

There’s only one cure for the blues after Chris Jones’ injury: dumping on Iowa and Texas. If you could create the perfect Husker, what traits from which Nebraska greats would you choose? Personally, I would go with the Jammal Lord’s name…and, screw it. You know what? Nothing matters. Nothing. What’s the point of our stupid conversational topics? What’s the point of anything? Chris Jones got hurt, and everything wrong with this world is completely self-evident. Shut it all down. Not just the 2017 Nebraska football...

Nebraska 2017 DL Signee Deiontae Watts Won’t Be Enrolling In Lincoln

Watts is one of two players that may not qualify from the 2017 class. As first reported by Bryan Munson of HOL/Rivals and confirmed by Sam McKewon of the Omaha World-Herald, Nebraska Defensive Tackle Deiontae Watts will not be heading to Lincoln. Watts, according to several folks, did not get the proper test scores to enroll at Nebraska this coming Fall. As first reported by @RivalsBryan, Deiontae Watts won’t be playing at Nebraska this fall. #huskers— Sam McKewon (@swmckewonOWH) July 17, 2017 Watts’ mother, Sandra,...

Decoding Langsdorf: Nebraska’s Counter Trap Part 3

How will the Counter change with no running QB? We think we know how. Before you read this, check out both Part 1 and Part 2. Done? Good, let’s continue… To provide a clear picture of the offensive line’s responsibilities on the Counter Trap play, I’ve found two endzone shots that I was fortunate enough to find of Nebraska running Counter. One is from this past April’s spring game, while the other is a QB Counter play from the Nebraska vs Wisconsin game in 2015....

Book Review: Walk-On This Way – The On-Going Legacy of the Wisconsin Football Walk-On Tradition

Yes, I read a book about Wisconsin football. “I say year in and year out, consistently, Wisconsin seems to me to have – certainly in the Big Ten – the best walk on tradition,” said Big Ten network studio host David Revzine. “While I’m more familiar with the Big Ten in the last decade most closely, it seems to me that in terms of getting consistent production from walk-on’s in key positions, I can’t imagine there’s anyone getting more out of their walk on program...
