Numbers, Statistics and Lies: Indiana Edition

Bruce Thorson-USA TODAY Sports Looking ahead to Purdue suggests this could be a very entertaining game – both good and bad This game was a flip flop of some earlier efforts by the Huskers. In this one, we witnessed a reasonably good (quite good actually) offensive performance but watched the defense get turned inside out and sideways. The havoc stats (interceptions, fumbles forced, tackles for loss) have largely become an aberration rather than a noticeable perk of the defense. The pass rush is still non-existent,...

NCAA Appears To Move On Name, Image, Likeness For Athletes, But Really Does Nothing At All

Photo by Maxx Wolfson/Getty Images It’s a whole lot of noise, that’s what it is. Yesterday the NCAA voted to make a major change in direction, voting to allowing student athletes to make money from their name, image, and likeness. You’d get the idea this is a monumental shift from reading headlines across the nation: NCAA to allow college athletes to market themselves, some will make millions – Business Insider NCAA clears way for athletes to profit from names, images and likenesses – ESPN NCAA...

Crimson Quarry: Indiana Took Offense at Nebraska’s Concerns of Cross-Division Scheduling

Indiana head coach Tom Allen When Nebraska pointed out that the Huskers play Ohio State eight times in 11 Big Ten seasons, but Indiana only twice, the Hoosiers got mad. SB Nation partner blog Crimson Quarry reports that Indiana’s outrage at Nebraska football head coach Scott Frost is based on Frost’s concerns about interdivision football schedules. Currently, Nebraska is halfway through a four game cross-division series with Ohio State. In 2022, Ohio State rotates off the schedule to be replaced by Michigan. That will mean...

Report Card: Indiana Hoosiers 38, Huskers 31

Photo by Steven Branscombe/Getty Images Whop, there it is. Another frustrating loss for the Huskers. Same song, different verse. Another frustrating loss. It’s almost like Bill Murray’s “Groundhog Day”; in the 1993 movie, Murray finds himself stuck repeating the same day over and over. Like Murray’s weatherman character, aren’t we becoming almost despondent over this happening over and over and over again? Eventually, Murray finally accepted that he had to change himself to break out of this cycle of despair. But not before he seemingly...

Nebraska 31 Indiana 38: Recap and Evening Thread

Bruce Thorson-USA TODAY Sports Defensive breakdowns doom the Huskers against the Hoosiers There are a ton of injuries for Nebraska. Who is going to play and who won’t be able to go? I’m guessing Adrian Martinez is out. Mood check Your browser does not support HTML5 video. First Quarter Noah Vedral gets the start (as many of us suspected) despite Martinez being dressed and going through warmups (with a knee brace). Game plan? Heavy dose of Dedrick Mills. AND JD SPIELMAN IS WIDE OPEN. First...

Nebraska Football: Scott Frost Presser – Maurice Washington Status, Media Might Be Irksome

Jon Johnston Below is the transcript from today’s weekly head coach press conference. It’s clear that Maurice Washington won’t be playing anytime soon, but that he’s not entirely off the team. Good? Bad? Indifferent? It’s not good that Washington isn’t playing because as we saw early in the season, he’s an explosion of an offensive player. It’s bad that Frost has stuck his neck out for the guy and from what we can tell, Washington hasn’t responded in like kind, i.e., he’s not doing the...
