Nebraska vs. Northern Illinois: Most Valuable Players

Even in yesterday’s debacle, some players stood out for their play. In the mired shitstorm of the Nebraska loss to Northern Illinois yesterday, there were a few individuals that stood out and performed well. We’re going to celebrate those folks here. Offense: De’Mornay Pierson-El Bruce Thorson-USA TODAY Sports In a game that Tanner Lee had a brutal time getting the ball out and the OL not helping his cause, Pierson-El was the bright spot in that WR crew, amassing the most catches with eight, and...

Report Card: Northern Illinois Huskies 21, Huskers 17

Throughout the spring and summer, I hedged my expectations about Nebraska based on Tanner Lee. Would he be the guy that NFL scouts had been raving about all summer long? Or would he be the Tulane washout that was so indistinguishable from redshirt freshman Patrick O’Brien that NU’s Billy Devaney called them “Patrick Lee and Tanner O’Brien” in the spring? Quite a few commenters here ridiculed my concerns over the summer. I don’t think they’re laughing anymore. When Northern Illinois’ Shawun Lurry picked off Lee’s...

Nebraska Loses 21-17 To Northern Illinois

It was a terrible loss. Where does Nebraska go from here? Nebraska quarterback Tanner Lee was 25-for-49 for 299 yards with three interceptions, two of which turned into the first 14 points for Northern Illinois as the Huskies lead 14-0 at the half. Nebraska’s offense had a good thing going on their first drive, as they easily drove down the field against the Huskies’ defense, with seven plays going 65 yards. Then Tanner Lee took forever to throw an out pass which was read by...

Nebraska Football’s Song Hasn’t Changed In 15 Years, And That’s The Problem

The Huskers loss to Northern Illinois is just a microcosm of the issues everyone in this program, down to the fans, have had. I suppose there’s some of us in the Nebraska fanbase that think they are in a Groundhog Day sequence. And, for the most part, they’re right. But it’s not just since Mike Riley’s been in Lincoln. He hasn’t helped the cause. But, before you get your nostrils up in a hizzy about what needs to be done TODAY about Mike Riley, Shawn...

Nebraska vs. Northern Illinois: Predictions

What does our staff think about these Week 3 games? Mike: Well, so now I’m back to “WTF” was I thinking about Minnesota and Ohio State? Or maybe it’s really “WTF was I thinking about Oklahoma and Oregon State?” Brian: I don’t think Ohio State is that bad, or Oklahoma is that good. But good lord, did the Sooners look the part. Also, Minnesota isn’t that good, because I do think Oregon State is that bad. Huskrboneyard: Another week another chance to act like I...

Friday Night Fun Night Game Thread!

Husker volleyball is already underway with Nebraska leading Kansas State 2 – 0 and ahead in the third set. Here are tonight’s games! You should probably watch the Illinois – South Florida game for at least a while because it might be one of the more interesting games of this weekend. There are not a lot of good games this weekend. That doesn’t mean you get to take the weekend off and not tailgate or drink like a fish – it simply means you should...

Flakes: Black Friday Football Is Going Away

The Huskers will play Minnesota on Saturdays to end 2020 and 2021, Kelly Hunter is the Big Ten setter of the week, and we look at Northern Illinois’ quarterback situation. Good Wednesday morning Corn Nation! You probably read Brian’s article yesterday about Husker football schedules for 2020 and 2021. They, GASP, do not include Black Friday football to end the regular season. We all knew Iowa was not thrilled with the Friday date when the Huskers joined the Big Ten and it appears those heathens...

Reviewing the 2017 Northern Illinois Huskies

Northern Illinois started the season with a 23-20 loss to Boston College followed by a 38-10 victory over 1-AA Eastern Illinois. Against Boston College, a seven win team that defeated Maryland in last year’s Quick Care Bowl, the two teams were tied late in the fourth quarter until the Eagles kicked a field goal with two minutes for a 23-20 victory. Junior Ryan Graham started that game, but suffered a sprained right elbow late in the game. Graham will be out for another couple of...

Nebraska Football’s Numbers, Statistics, and Lies: Oregon Edition

Numbers everywhere! I even picked a feel-good one amidst all the rubble. For those of you new to this series, N,S,&L is about basic stats and where the Huskers rank relative to other FBS teams and Big Ten teams and whether the “eye test” tells us if the numbers are lying or not. Color-Coded Pile of Numbers The mostly-green offensive showing of last week has skewed decidedly yellow and red after the trip out west. The defense went from yellow and red to really red....

Nebraska Football: Mike Riley Signs One-Year Contract Extension, Per Report

The Husker head coach is on contract until 2020, with another year probably coming. The Omaha World-Herald, in this report, quoted University of Nebraska President Hank Bounds that Nebraska Cornhuskers Head Coach Mike Riley has agreed to a one-year contract extension, going through at least the 2020 season. The WH, who discussed the contract extension with Bounds, states that there should be a probability that by December, Riley will get another year long extension. Riley’s contract does not include a significant raise, which means that...
