College Football in the Fall Appears to be Inevitable

Photo by Steven Branscombe/Getty Images Whether you like it or not here we go For those who may have missed it, I published a piece on how the 2020 Nebraska football team would have been the best Nebraska team to not win a championship. I wrote that for a couple reasons. First, I thought it would be fun and ridiculous. Second, I didn’t think the 2020 football season was going to actually happen. That was on May 4th. It is only 18 days later and...

Nebraska Football Ultimate Quarterback Bracket: And the Winner Is

Touchdown! Touchdown! Touchdown… And your ultimate Nebraska Quarterback is Tommie Frazier! He beat out Eric Crouch with 65% of the vote to 35% for Crouch. Both quarterbacks were a helluva lotta fun to watch but it is Frazier’s name that comes up when we talk about the best quarterbacks ever in all of college football and not just at Nebraska. Thank you again to BrewCityHSKR for this pandemic distraction! Ultimate Offensive Line Bracket Next up – the Offensive Line. Here is Brew’s bracket: 1) Dave...

Frosted Flakes: Penguin Races, Hoarding Kickers and Cartoons Coming to Life

Photo by Mark Kolbe/Getty Images Penguins waddling + British accent? Sign me up! I’ve got a pretty good life. It isn’t perfect and there are things I am working to improve, but overall, I can’t (or at least shouldn’t) complain. Almost anyone can look around and find someone who has it worse than them and I am no exception. And then, there is what Dylan Talley is going through right now. I cannot even imagine what kind of crushing grief and stress he is enduring....

Of Bangarangs & Daggers Episode 51: Who Are The Bluebloods?

Photo by Robert Willett/Raleigh News & Observer/Tribune News Service via Getty Images Last week’s episode sparked a furious Slack debate over who and what Bluebloods are. So here we are to answer our version of that question! We’re back with another episode of Bangarangs & Daggers! We have a special episode for you all tonight as the full three man weave got together for this one. Last week’s episode briefly mentioning who the “Blue Bloods” of college basketball sparked a fun but intense Slack debate...

Nebrasketball: Huskers Likely Sitting Out Gavitt Tipoff Games

Nebraska Athletic Communications The annual tilt between the Big East and Big Ten looks to sit the Huskers for second straight season. If the Nebraska Cornhuskers men’s basketball team follows the pattern of last year, then we should know in about three weeks what the non-conference basketball schedule will look like for the 2020-2021 season. However, we continue to get a clearer picture in the meantime what types of opponents will and won’t be on the schedule. If reports are accurate, then Nebraska will not...

Underdog Week: Why To Never Root for the Underdog

One of the Ultimate Underdogs – The 1980 USA Hockey team against the Soviets! They are supposed to lose, why are you cheering for them? Note: It is UNDERDOG WEEK On Our SBNation Sites! There are some people in this world who ALWAYS root for the underdog. I am not one of them. I like my team to win and I like to see excellent teams, even if it isn’t my team, be excellent. My mom, however, is one who likes the underdog and I...

Tweaking the 2020 Nebraska Football Schedule: A Roundtable

Photo by Steven Branscombe/Getty Images I guess I stretched “driving distance” a little bit It is time to get creative. There have been discussions about how scheduling may have to change for a year or two in order for a season to happen. To be truthful, I hope they scrap the entire schedule for 2020. For Nebraska it is brutal. The Huskers end the season playing at Ohio State, Penn State, at Iowa, at Wisconsin and then finishes with Minnesota. One main concern is asking...

Nebraska Football Ultimate Quarterback Bracket: The Championship

It is a battle between #1 and #2 for the title of “Ultimate Nebraska Quarterback” Thank you again to BrewCityHSKR for the idea and setting up the original bracket (that the CN staff altered a bit). While I’m still a bit bummed that Turner Gill didn’t make the final four, I am pretty excited about this championship round. It is “Touchdown Tommie” vs “Black 41 Flash Reverse”. It is a quarterback who should have won a Heisman vs one who did. A quarterback who has...

Bringing Sports Back To America And Other Goodies To Start Your Monday

Photo by Steven Branscombe/Getty Images So how long before we get our fix? The powers that be seem to be nearing on many made up yet pretty decent deadlines on when major sports are coming back. We have already seen the emergence of golf, MMA, & soccer among other minor sports popping back up on the world scene. From my understanding the beginning of June we should see some announcements on more sports starting to open up their windows. Right now, we are going off...

Podcast: Their Eyes Were Watching Bundesliga

Photo by Martin Meissner/Pool via Getty Images What do other sports tell us about what ours might be like when they return? I watched Bundesliga, the German pro soccer league, Saturday morning to get an idea of what it would be like to have sports without fans. It was kinda weird. Then I did a short podcast about what it might be like for us and our beloved college sports. Source: Corn Nation
