Scott Frost is Betting on Himself in Recruiting

Photo by Matthew Holst/Getty Images Team recruiting rankings are not very kind to Nebraska at this point but maybe that is all part of the plan After receiving the most recent commitment from running back Sevion Morrison, Nebraska’s recruiting ranking according to 24/7 national composite rankings jumped from 64th to 55th, as written by Brian Christopherson of Nebraska 24/7. Nebraska is currently sandwiched by the following teams: East Carolina, Baylor, Indiana and North Texas. Instead of being 12th in the Big Ten, they are now...

Nebraska Football Practice Report August 23: When Alternate Uniforms Are No Longer “Alternate”

Jon Johnston The head coach had quite a bit of news today. A walk-on earns a scholarship, the top center is back to full speed, and he has some ideas on expanding the use of “alternate” uniforms Today, the head man took time to talk to the media and update on a walk-on turned scholarship offensive lineman, a lineman returning from injury and some tantalizing tidbits about alternate uniforms and what he’d like to see in the future (Hint: If anyone but Scott Frost proposed...

Maryland Terrapins 2019 Football Preview

Photo by Will Newton/Getty Images New coach with a bunch of new players means that there’s probably a lot of work to be done in Maryland. Maryland football has found it rough since moving to the Big Ten in 2014. After a 7-6 inaugural season, the Terrapins have gone 18-31 overall and 9-27 in conference play. But when you play in the east division, wins are going to be tough to come by; Maryland is 2-17 against east division schools with names that don’t rhyme...

Nebrasketball Player Profile: Dalano Banton

Photo by Steve Roberts/Icon Sportswire via Getty Images Fred has himself a nice transfer that should be able to contribute down the road Oh, Canada! From the Great White North the windswept prairie the Nebraska Cornhuskers have received the services of Dalano Banton. Well, Canada through Western Kentucky where he played one season before transferring, but Canada none the less. We do not see many Canadians here in the middle of the High Plains. Most go down to Fargo or Detroit and realize that America...

Nebrasketball: Georgia Tech Preseason Preview

Photo by William Howard/Icon Sportswire via Getty Images Husker take on the Yellow Jackets in this years Big Ten/ACC Challenge The B1G-ACC Challenge Let me just get my bias out in the open right away: I loathe just about everything to do with ACC basketball and every last team, coach, and fan involved with it. Even when they blatantly cheat, they get away with it (I wish I could have gotten a degree from UNC without actually taking real classes). Ok, so Louisville did get...

The Drought is Over! Running Back Sevion Morrison is N!

It’s Tulsa Time in Lincoln It’s Nebraska for Sevion Morrison pic.twitter.com/D7TFiTgcCu— Guerin Emig (@GuerinEmig) August 21, 2019 Sevion Morrison, 5-11 196lb three star running back from Tulsa Oklahoma has committed to the Nebraska Cornhuskers! Sevion chose Nebraska over Arkansas, their Kansas, Baylor, Washington, Missouri, and several other FBS teams. The Husker coaching staff hosted him in June for an official visit, and were the leaders in his recruitment from that point forward. However, Wisconsin just offered him, and he’s said he will take an official...

Wisconsin Badgers 2019 Football Preview

Photo by Lawrence Iles/Icon Sportswire via Getty Images Schedule and lack of returning starters are perhaps the only reasons why the Badgers aren’t favored to win the West yet again in 2019. Since Nebraska joined the Big Ten conference, it turns out the Wisconsin Badgers have occupied the spot that Husker fans expected the Big Red to occupy in the conference. Wisconsin has five championship game appearances in eight years; nobody else has more. Wisconsin has won seven out of the eight games between the...

Interrupting All Programs: PLEASE DO NOT DRINK THE 2019 HUSKER KOOL-AID…

Photo by Steven Branscombe/Getty Images A writer who has been around the block has advice for the faithful I am pleading with the Cornhusker faithful about expectations for 2019. With all the national top 20 predictions (and better) and winning the Big 10 West, I’m telling Husker fans not to drink the KOOL-AID! We all know how the Solich era crashed in 2002-03, despite so many resources and taking over the top program in the country in 1998. Who could forget the 2007′s season preseason...

Nebraska Football Practice Report August 19

The Big Ten crew was at practice, alternate uniforms dropped, the first AP poll included the Huskers and defensive coordinator Erik Chinander discussed situational football, leadership (giggles at the “nuggets” of wisdom “dropped” by coach) and the energy from the team. Alternate uniform news! No date has been announced for when the Huskers...

Our Big Ten predictions are committed to paper, so now we’re here to embarrass ourselves on predicting champions elsewhere in college football.
