Reviewing the 2020 Iowa Hawkeyes

Punting is winning. | Rich Barnes-USA TODAY Sports The Hawkeyes have won three in a row this season, and try to make it six straight against Nebraska. The Hawkeyes started the 2020 season 0-2 after losing second half leads to Purdue and Northwestern. The Hawkeyes were driving deep into Purdue territory when the Boilermakers forced a Mekhi Sargeant turnover. A twelve play touchdown drive gave Purdue the 24-20 victory. Against Northwestern, the Hawkeyes blew a 17-0 first quarter lead with three Spencer Petras interceptions as...

Nebraska 102 McNeese State 55

Bruce Thorson-USA TODAY Sports Huskers start off the year with a big win over the Cowboys It took maybe two to three possessions to make it obvious that this Nebraska Cornhuskers basketball team’s ceiling is above and beyond anything the 2019-2020 Nebraska basketball team ever would have dreamed of. For me it started with a rebound by the 6’9” point guard, Delano Banton, and after a couple dribbles he was already on the other side of the court as he passed it to a teammate....

Nebrasketball Player Profiles: Chris McGraw

Scott Bruhn Our last, but certainly not least, player profile for the upcoming season is walk-on Chris McGraw. The communications major out of Columbus, Ohio previously played at the college level for Ohio University and Otterbein College before finding his way to Lincoln. McGraw was a member last season of the DIII Cardinals of Otterbein College just outside of Columbus in the 2019-2020 season. He did not play during the season due to injury, however. Prior to that, he committed to Ohio University and played...

Huskers in the NFL Week 11

Mitch Stringer-USA TODAY Sports Top Husker Performer Goes to One of the Boys This past weekend was one of the busiest for our former Huskers as only one active roster player was inactive for their game along with one rookie getting their second career start. And while we have the good we also have the very bad as fan favorite Rex Burkhead suffered a season ending injury. Let’s take a look at how each for Husker did in their Week 11 games. Top Husker Performer...

The Counter Bootleg: Episode 7 – Every Game Is Not A Referendum on Nebraska Football

Photo by Jonathan Daniel/Getty Images Do we loved drama? Yes, we love drama. While the goal has been to keep these podcasts ten minutes or under I have decided to violate that rule for Episode 7. We need to stop hyperventilating after every single Nebraska football game. It is exhausting. It makes me want to check out. What if we simply are a team that simply isn’t good enough, at this point, to simply think it can show up and win a game against a...

Report Card: Illinois Fighting Illini 41, Huskers 23

Bruce Thorson-USA TODAY Sports Debacles like this calls for a lot of soul searching. From the opening kickoff, you could tell this wasn’t going to be Nebraska’s day. Alante Brown made an ill-advised choice to return the kickoff out of the endzone and got blown up at the 17 yard line. Luke McCaffrey made a boneheaded improv decision to lateral the ball, which was ruled a fumble, recovered by Illinois without any review. On the very next play, Illinois quarterback Brandon Peters fumbled the ball...

Bruce Thorson-USA TODAY Sports The Huskers looked terrible in every facet of the game.

I don’t think the coaches can keep...

Post Game Reaction Podcast: Nebraska’s Horrible Terrible Sucky Loss To Illinois

Bruce Thorson-USA TODAY Sports It was pretty awful. About as bad as it can get. 41-23. Nebraska’s defense gave up 490 total yards. Nebraska’s offense committed FIVE turnovers. This was the worst Nebraska game I can remember watching for a long time. That’s an incredible statement, given the past few years. Last week it felt like Nebraska turned a corner. This week it was like they turned the corner straight into hell. It’s solo me giving a post game reaction. It’s not pretty. We have...
