College Football FanPulse Week 11: LSU Holds on to the Top Spot

Photo by Kevin C. Cox/Getty Images Related news: Don’t look now, but we might have to take the Golden Gophers seriously We are three-fourths of the way through the college football season. In many years, I would be lamenting how fast the season has gone. This year we are staring down the barrel of a third losing Husker season in a row. I’m going to enjoy all the positives I can during the next three Husker football games, but I doubt I will look back...

Saturday Evening Game Thread: Nebraska vs Iowa Volleyball and Football Somewhere (Probably)

Jon Johnston Let’s cheer on the Husker women as they seek to keep their unbeaten streak alive vs the Hawkeyes It is the Huskers vs Hawkeyes in a very one-sided rivalry. Iowa has never defeated Nebraska. Can the ladies keep up their intensity and avoid the big upset? Also, football sucks. The Huskers may be on a bye week, but the Jackrabbits lost, my kids’ high school team didn’t make playoffs, and…football sucks. There is still some football-related things and PAC12AfterDark stuff. Let’s all commiserate...

Nebraska Volleyball wins over Iowa

Photo by Jamie Schwaberow/NCAA Photos via Getty Images More offensive weapons for Nebraska than Iowa can handle in volleyball tonight Nebraska soundly defeated Iowa 25-21, 25-18, 25-14. The first two sets were more back and forth than a fan wants to see when the #7 team plays a under .500 team but Iowa played well. The Iowa players were on tonight and Nebraska players were not as sharp. The bigger picture looks better than some of the not so sharp moments tonight Nebraska is improving...

Numbers, Statistics and Lies: The Five Dysfunctions of a Team Edition

Photo by Michael Hickey/Getty Images Where everything’s made up and the points don’t matter. Anymore. We have officially reached the part of the Husker football season where it all seems to be imploding. There is a lot of blame to pass around and no shortage of reasons why this season has turned out below expectations (even the relatively lower expectations Husker fans had compared to national media). So, today’s NSL is not about numbers at all. I included them, but you and I both know...

Nebraska Football’s Second Bye Week: Hope? Where I’m Going There Is No Hope.

Photo by Zach Bolinger/Icon Sportswire via Getty Images The season is likely lost. Where to go from here? The bye-week is a perfect time for what random thoughts. They could all be wrong. They could all be right. Or maybe somewhere in between. During my last bye-week article I said there has been obvious progress. I am thinking that I may have been wrong. It sure looks like it. Maybe Nebraska has had to take a couple steps back in order to take some steps...

Happy Birthday College Football! You Look Good for 150

Memorial Stadium – Lincoln, NE 150 years of shenanigans, love, hate and everything in between 150 years ago Rutgers and Princeton played in the first ever college football game. Little has changed for Rutgers since that fateful day. The game they played on that day is far from what we would consider modern day football. To many, what Rutgers does on the gridiron today is looked upon the same way. Those teams did not have head coaches and after all these years, Rutgers still prefers...

Nebrasketball Opener: Hoiberg Debut Not Gone As Planned

Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports After a successful exhibition game, things went awry as the UC Riverside Highlanders came to play It’s opening night! The Huskers came into this one a 15 point favorite, and did not cover. After getting front row seats for the exhibition game, I was directed to the “other” student section, behind the away team’s hoop. I showed up at the same time for both the exhibition and tonight. For Fred Hoiberg’s first game, intensity surged through the arena, with the starters...

Nebrasketball: Stats, Stats, & More Pre-Season Stat Rankings Galore!

Roby gets the dunk on Flopsconsin last season in the B1G Tournament. | David Banks-USA TODAY Sports KenPom/RPI/BPI/NET, oh my! A quick rundown on preseason rankings for the Huskers as we get ready to start the season tomorrow night. Let’s take a quick stroll down stats lane and advanced stats boulevard and see how the Huskers are projected to stack up, shall we? Just because this is my first season covering Husker hoops, I am going to also include a brief blurb describing the basics...

The Morning After: The Inability to Close Out Drives and Games Haunts Nebraska Yet Again

Thomas J. Russo-USA TODAY Sports and The Morning After The most frustrating part of this for myself is that I simply can’t make sense of the situation. It would be easier if there was something to point to and simply say, “that’s why.” It would never happen, but I personally would appreciate it if Scott Frost came out and told us exactly why things continue to go this way for the Nebraska football team. There are three games this season which should have ended up...

Report Card: Purdue Boilermakers 31, Huskers 27

Thomas J. Russo-USA TODAY Sports Yikes. Nebraska football, meet banana peel. Again. Lather, rinse, repeat. Yikes. Nebraska football, meet banana peel. Again. Lather, rinse, repeat. Against Purdue, Nebraska played sloppy and allowed the Boilermakers to pull off the upset with their third-string quarterback engineering the game winning drive. And now, Husker Nation is full of questions and doubts. Some are enraged; some are starting to become apathetic. We thought last year would be better than the year before; it was, but the record was the...

Nebraska 27 Purdue 31: Recap and Afternoon Thread

Thomas J. Russo-USA TODAY Sports There is no saving this season. The Huskers fall in West Lafayette with plenty of blame to spread around. #Huskers release their travel roster for the Purdue game. Plenty of new faces. No Cam Taylor-Britt, Luke McCaffrey or Wyatt Mazour on the trip.https://t.co/ZjsETKDZwk— Michael Bruntz (@michaelbruntz) November 2, 2019 Not having Cam Taylor-Britt worries me a fair bit. Adrian Martinez claims he is 100%. I doubt it, but count me among those who don’t think he has been 100% at...

CornNation Loses Your Money: Huskers vs. Purdue Edition

Photo by John S. Peterson/Icon Sportswire via Getty Images Who do we think is going to be happier Saturday afternoon: Herbie Husker or Purdue Pete? Mike: The college football schedule makers are sure playing tricks on us on this first weekend of games after Halloween. I should have realized this when Fox chose the Huskers and Boilermakers for their “Big Noon Saturday” game. Patrick: One month left of the regular season. I’m already getting choked up. Andy: I haven’t even scrolled down yet, but if...
