Volleyball: Huskers Fall to Stanford in National Championship Match

Before Saturday night, the #1 seed in the NCAA Division I Women’s Volleyball Tournament hadn’t won it all since 2009. That team was Penn State. At the Target Center in Minneapolis, that streak ended as the Stanford Cardinal knocked off the Nebraska Huskers 3-2 (26-28, 25-22, 16-25, 25-15, 15-12). The first two points of the opening set went the way of the Cardinal, but the first Husker point came from an unlikely source, Husker freshman middle Callie Scwarzenbach. A long rally on the next point...

Reflections of 2018 Nebraska Football: A Corn Nation Roundtable

Now that we’ve had a couple of weeks to digest 2018, the CN team reflects back at Scott Frost’s first season leading the Huskers. Now that we’ve had a couple of weeks to reflect on the football season, the Corn Nation staff sat down and reflected on the 2018 Huskers. I dare say, nobody around here expected another 4-8 season for Nebraska. What was the biggest difference between the 0-6 start to the season and the 4-2 conclusion? Uglydog56: Uhh, that would be the 4...

Oklahoma State is lead by second year head coach Mike Boynton Jr. They are currently 4-5 and are on a three game...

Frosted Flakes: The Heisman – Overrated Or Greatest Ever?

Here are the top 10 for 2019. A little slow on this, I know. It’s probably already made the rounds. The Heisman Trophy has to be the most overrated trophy in all of sports. We know this. It was affirmed when some other guy not named Tommie Frazier won it. It was...

Long Overdue and Eagerly Sought After Recruiting Update

Bonus Offensive Lineman Content! Greetings and Salutations Nebraska Football Faithful! I hope this finds you all hale, hearty and Husker. A lot has gone on in recruiting, and this is the place to hear about it! But first, a personal note. First of all, the gate latch install for Mrs Uglydog, which delayed the publishing of this article, went well. I did have to break out the belt sander to get everything to fit, but that’s minor. Happy wife, happy life! Also, I have decided...

Nebrasketball: Huskers #25 in Coaches Poll

Just outside of Top 25 in AP In a week where the Huskers lost to Minnesota but beat Creighton the coaches decided to keep Nebraska where they were the week before at #25. The AP, on the other hand, dropped the Huskers to what would technically be #26th with 115 votes. They were previously #24 in the AP. Kansas saw themselves jump to #1 in both polls after Gonzaga had their first loss of the season to #7 Tennessee. Other Big Ten teams that are...

Photos: Nebraska Volleyball vs Oregon!

It was a wonderful match! Here’s more of it! Consider me surprised that Nebraska swept Oregon. I still hold that thought a couple days later, or at least that’s my excuse for publishing a gallery two days after the fact. I’m no volleyball expert by any means, but I believe what you saw against Oregon was a masterful job of coaching by John Cook. I haven’t attended tons of matches over his career, but without reservation I can say that he was more animated during...
