Friday Flakes: An Enlightening Road Trip Through the Old Big 12

Photo by Tim Warner/Getty Images Last weekend I drove down to a town outside of Austin, TX for some training. While I have been on some long road trips, I realized that the longest I have ever driven by myself was probably to Kansas City. I have driven to many other destinations much further away from Nebraska but I was always with family or friends when that happened. I had complete control of my trip down to Texas so I went a little bit out...

Big Ten Baseball Tournament Recap: Day 3

Penn State Athletics An entertaining, albeit lacking Nebraska, day. Game 6 — Iowa got screwed! #1 Illinois 4 #5 Iowa 2 For the second day in a row, Iowa went to the tenth inning before their fate was sealed. Yesterday against Michigan, they got beat because their pitcher could not throw the ball over the plate. Today, they got beat because two umpires absolutely screwed them over on an interference call that never should have been called, let alone confirmed on review. If Coach Rick...

Thursday Flakes: Hot Dogs, Summer Concerts and Urban Forests

Would you eat these hot dogs? | Brad Schmitt / Tennessean / USA TODAY NETWORK Let’s get ready for Memorial Day Weekend with a Tasty Thursday Flakes. I’ve just finished spending a wonderful week in Columbus, Ohio to visit my brother and sister-in-law. Most importantly, I finally got to meet my niece for the first time and those are the moments you never forget. She niece is used to her mother feeding her so I only managed to feed her one or two spoonfuls of...

Sears and Christo Send Purdue Home with the Nebraska Baseball 6-2 Win

Nebraska Athletic Department The two pitchers allowed only 2 hits and combined for 13 strikeouts against the Boilermakers Well, well, well… It seems Purdue is always involved with Nebraska at the end of the season. 2022 saw Purdue roll out the tarp, sit in the dugout and make their way to Omaha instead of Nebraska. (They went 0-2 by the way.) Then in 2023, Nebraska went to West Lafayette and ended Purdue’s season, right in front of that tarp. 2024 provides the rubber match of...

Big Ten Baseball Tournament Recap: Day 2

Welcome Back Gabe Swansen | Nebraska Athletic Department A wonderful day at the old ballpark! Game 3 — Omaha, where powerful offenses come to die… #8 Penn State – 8 #1 Illinois – 4 If at any point someone walked into Charles Schwab Field and had no idea which team was the top seed between Illinois and Penn State, there was maybe a 5-minute period in the 6th inning where the Illini looked the part, otherwise it was all Penn State. It was right from...

Photo by Steven Branscombe/Getty Images What would be better than a 7 p.m. college football matchup on a Friday night than watching Nebraska and Illinois battle it out on FOX?

Nebraska Baseball Shelled in 15-2 Loss to Ohio State

Nebraska Athletics The Huskers couldn’t get anything going on the mound or in the box, while the Buckeyes could do no wrong. What looked to be a perfect night for baseball turned into anything but for Nebraska. The dreary weather had given way to sunshine for the first time all day right before warmups started. The wind was blowing out, making this huge park play a little more standard. But as quickly as the storms that delayed the start of the game 6 hours had...

Big Ten Baseball Tournament Recap Day 1

Josh Caron leads Nebraska into the B1G Tournament | Nebraska Athletic Department The eagerly anticipated start to the 2024 Big Ten Baseball Tournament was delayed six hours when teams woke up in Omaha to sirens, golfball-sized hail, and sheets of rain. Streets were flooding and it did not take long before B1G officials announced a delay to the start of the 10:00 game. Initially it was scheduled for 1:00, but when another nasty looking front approach from the west, it was moved to 4:00. However,...
