    Bo Pelini's tenure as coach at Nebraska can be compared to a Clint Eastwood movie: The Good (at least 9-wins every year) The Bad (4-losses every year) and The Ugly (no conference titles or BCS appearances). Pelini (58-24), now entering his seventh year at Nebraska, is coming off of his most tumultuous season in Lincoln. With plenty of experience and key returnees back for the 2013 season, as well as eight home games, Husker fans expected Nebraska to represent the now defunct Legends division in Indianapolis. Instead, the Huskers came out of the gate - against a Wyoming team that finished the season 5-7 - and gave up over 600 yards of offense in a 37-34 nail biter.

    The defense would go on to spend the first half of the 2013 season paying homage to Kevin Cosgrove. Poor defensive play helped to add fuel to a coaching seat that at times was on fire. Fans and media spent

    With the start of the season less than two weeks away, Nebraska hovers at No. 22 in both the AP and USA Today coaches' preseason polls, which is just as it should be. The Cornhuskers have done nothing lately to earn any more public esteem than that. They enter the season with an aggressive defense that will be dynamite if it can keep teams from running between the tackles. Nebraska has quality running backs, inexperience at ...

    It wasn't supposed to end this way. No, number 3 was going to go out on top and have his best year in 2013. His passing would become more accurate, his running would continue to be deadly for opponents and as a senior, he was going to significan'tly reduce his turnovers and mistakes.

    When he was healthy, Taylor Martinez was lightning in a bottle-one of the most electrifying players in all of college football. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RD-KMAlQAp0)

    To be sure, as a senior Taylor Martinez was going to lead the Huskers to a B1G championship (first conference title since '99), get the school's first BCS bowl invite since 2001, earn his first bowl victory and lead Nebraska to a probable ...

    As Nebraska's fall camp continues, there is a lot of positive news, hyperbole, and high expectations being placed on the Huskers. If you consume enough of the preseason Kool Aid, you can easily convince yourself that this Husker team is poised to win the Big Ten West and even challenge for a spot in the new football playoff.,

    On the surface, I agree. Those things are possible. But such rose-colored glasses thinking overlooks some very serious concerns on this Nebraska team. Things that easily turn a promising season into another four loss campaign - or worse.

    1. Quarterback. Despite some preseason noise about being pushed by Ryker Fyfe, Tommy Armstrong will be the starter and likely will get every opportunity to succeed. I think Armstrong did a decent job last year as a redshirt freshman coming off the bench for the injured ...

    One of the best things that came out of Big Ten media days was Shawn Eichorst revealing that Nebraska and Wisconsin were working on a rivalry trophy for their now-annual game. At least the Heroes' Game Trophy means that, whatever Eichorst and Barry Alvarez come up with, it won't be the worst trophy in the conference.

    Still, Nebraska needs at least one more, and maybe two or three other trophy ...

    Husker Dan is back for his 12th season covering Husker football! He's young, he's tan and he's rested! (Okay, so one out of three ain't bad.)

    Let's cut to the chase.

    DANGERFIELD?

    Most of the pre-season college football mags are underwhelmed by this year's Husker football team. And who can blame them? In each of his six years as the Husker head coach, Bo Pelini's teams have lost four games and some of those losses have been really ugly. Complicating matters, Pelini's teams have never won a conference title (three tries) and have had zero BCS bowl appearances.

    Moreover, Bo's teams have suffered one or more double digit losses every season he's been at Nebraska.. Last year, Pelini reached a personal high with 4 DDLs with a six year career total of 13. ...

    Nebraska-Oklahoma. For twenty years, the late-season game usually played a role in the national title chase and had fans on all sides mad-chatting for weeks before and after the game. After the series' annual discontinuation, Nebraska, bathed in time-honored respect for tradition, left a conference that it felt wasn't honoring the past for one that put the past and its rivalries first. Three years ...

    Tavin Richardson

    Tavin Richardson of Byrnes High School in Duncan, South Carolina, is rated as a high three-star prospect by the major recruiting sites. With offers from several schools in the SEC, ACC and Big Ten among several others, Richardson is considered one of the better wide receiver prospects in the south region for the 2015 class. Nebraska is looking to add one or two receivers to their current class and plan to be quite selective. Coaches have identified Tavin Richardson as a priority. Richardson is the kind of big-bodied receiver Husker coaches want to add to the roster. I had the opportunity to interview Tavin in an attempt to gain some insight into his recruiting experience. The following is a transcript from that:

    Q: What kind of things do you do for fun?

    A: I like to
    play basketball, video games and listen to music.

    Q: At what age did you start playing football?


    A: I started playing tackle football at 6-years-old.

    Q: What was your favorite college team growing up?


    A: My favorite college

    Good news never comes out on a Friday, so it should come as no surprise that Nebraska unveiled their 2014 alternate uniforms yesterday. And like a TV network announcing the cancellation of a failed high-profile TV series, Nebraska's alternate uniforms will be worn in a late September game that kicks off at 8 P.M. local time against a bad team, after all the pundits on the east coast are deep into ABC or ESPN's major ...

    I am a sucker for old Nebraska games. All summer, I'm checking BTN or sifting through my DVD collection of old games. Nothing is more dramatic than breaking down old plays and reliving the excitement. FYI, the most tense series of plays from last year were the plays after Ameer Abdullah's long touchdown against Penn State was taken away by a bogus unnecessary roughness penalty. RK3 totally misses Jake Long on the third-and-goal.

    There is a danger in living in old highlights. As I will demonstrate in my first ...
