Monday Night Therapy: Talking about Nebraska’s Offensive Line

I am back from my Canadian fishing trip and this week it’s time to start talking about the 2024 Nebraska football season. We’re going to begin with the offensive line because that’s where everything begins. The game is won, the game is lost on the strength of the offensive line and Nebraska’s offensive line hasn’t been very good for a very long time. One thing to note from last year that’s changed. This year there’s been no talk of Donovan Raiola being a weak link...

Nebraska Football: Does Memorial Stadium Suffer from Being Moody?

Reese Strickland-USA TODAY Sports This article isn’t meant to be a declaration of any kind. It is just a thought I had last week when I wrote Friday Flakes on the fact that Memorial Stadium did not make it into EA Sports Top 25 hardest places to play for opponents. First, we need to be upfront with the fact that Memorial Stadium currently is not one of the 25 hardest places to play for opponents. Like most things in life, things could change simply by...

Corn Flakes: The Big B1G got Bigger

Photo by Ric Tapia/Getty Images July is here! Football is getting closer I hope you all had a great Fourth of July weekend! July means that we are closer to football news. Our new Big Ten brethren are officially part of the conference…UCLA, USC, Washington and Oregon. The B1G is now a transcontinental conference. Let’s wrap our heads around that for a minute. The definition of “conference” as most of us knew it is now dead. “Conference” now means a group of teams that are...

Corn Nation Overreaction Revisits the Final Win of the 2023 Husker Football Season…Purdue

This week on the Overreaction Revisited Podcast, Hoss and Greg discuss the Nebraska-Purdue game from October 28, 2023. Hoss states that “weird things happen around Halloween.” That is what turned a 24-0 lead into a 24-14 lead and gave the Boilermakers a little hope late in the game. While the offense was sharp for three quarters, fatigue had to have set in and mistakes were made in the fourth frame. Purdue scored all of their points off of turnovers, making the score closer than it...

Friday Flakes: Nebraska Men’s Basketball Motivated by Potentially Historic Opportunity

Petre Thomas-USA TODAY Sports Do we dare say that there is some “unfinished business” for Nebraska Men’s basketball. Brice Williams and Juwan Gary met with the media earlier this week and that seemed to be the theme. Williams and Gary are both motivated by unfinished business and through their experience in the NCAA tournament last season they are looking forward to this season as an opportunity to make a historic run for the program. Which is to win one measly game in the NCAA tournament....

Five Heart Podcast: Huskers Beef Up Offensive Line, Our Favorite Uniforms – LIVE at 9pm Central

This week on the Five Heart Podcast, Greg and Minnie discuss the latest players who committed to play for the Huskers, wo offensive linemen, including a center. Matt Rhule and his staff are doing great things on the recruiting trail. Also, since it’s July and we’re looking for things to discuss, we’re going through the 133 years of Nebraska football and examining our Top 5 football uniforms. And last but not least, it’s a party! America had a birthday, obviously. But July 5 is Greg’s...

Nebraska Football: Huskers Bring the Hammer with New 2025 Offensive Lineman Commit

Dylan Widger-USA TODAY Sports Matt Rhule and Co. bring the hammer with new commit from Shawn Hammerbeck from South Dakota.

Corn Flakes: Two Professional Volleyball Leagues in Omaha

Photo by Toru Hanai/Getty Images Speaking of volleyball, Huskers help bring home gold for the USA Last winter it was fun to watch the Omaha Supernovas make their debut and I was happy to see that they had a good following. The addition of several former Huskers has got to help with that as well.

ALL THE RIGHT MOVIES – The Corn Nation Sports Movie Show: Next Up – BULL DURHAM

The Dog Days of Summer are here, so what better way to start lallygagging through them than to spend some quality time with the Durham Bulls. What’s that make us, Larry?!?! Lallygaggers. Time to face it. The NBA and NHL championships just ended. College and pro football are a couple months from starting and the pennant races really won’t kick into overdrive until August. (Okay, we do have the Olympics coming up, but one can only count on those every four years. As if. So...

Nebraska Football: Huskers Receive 2025 Commit from an All-Purpose Athlete in Jeremiah Jones

Dylan Widger-USA TODAY Sports Apparently the Nebraska is hoping their new commit can excel at safety. That is not something you hear a lot about an athlete who has a 6’6” and 200 pound frame in which to build upon. That usually sounds like a future outside linebacker or tight end. That is what Nebraska is hoping they get from Jeremiah Jones out of Murray, Kentucky. First I would like to thank God for each & every opportunity I’ve been given. I would also like...

Corn Flakes: A Center Commits to Nebraska Football and the Olympics Will Be Here Soon!

I would have loved to play flag football had it been as popular when I was a kid as it is now. That is probably why I think the flag football camps mentioned below are a great idea. Do you know anyone that is going to give these a try? (And no, I’m not going to try and see if I can keep up with the kids....
