    I attended a small private college in Wisconsin, graduating in 2005. Over the years, I've talked to other alums who wish our school system was a bit more forthcoming about the debt most of us were incurring. Many of the people I ...

    Kentrell Love of Centennial High School in Corona, California, has not yet been rated by any of the four major recruiting services. Don't let that fact fool you, though. Love could be on the cusp of blowing up on the recruiting scene. The Huskers are very deep at cornerback, but will still be looking to add a couple in this class. The depth and overall talent level on the roster will allow them to be very selective. Kentrell Love fits the mold of what new defensive backs coach Brian Stewart is looking for. Love is 6-foot-2 with long arms, and his overall skillset is reminiscent of current Husker cornerbacks Joshua Kalu (6-1) and Chris Jones (6-0) - both of whom Stewart recruited while he was the defensive coordinator at Maryland. I had the opportunity to interview Kentrell in an attempt to gain some insight ...

    “It's sad when someone you know becomes someone you knew.”
    - Henry Rollins


    Champions Club
    Lincoln, NE

    As I write this column, it's painful to think of Adrian Fiala in the past tense. Really strange. And terribly sad.

    But last Thursday, at the Champions Club in Lincoln, family members, friends, former high school classmates and a bunch of his former Husker football teammates showed up to honor Adrian who passed away April 13th.

    They

    Hayden Johnson of Rock Bridge High School in Columbia, Missouri, is rated as a three-star prospect by 247Sports and has not yet been rated by the other three major recruiting services. Nebraska has a glaring need for help at defensive end and are also looking to add a pair of tight ends with this class as well. Hayden Johnson is a versatile prospect capable of playing either position at the next level. Under Riley, Nebraska is making more of a concerted effort to focus on the 500-mile radius. He would like to foster a recruiting mentality that treats border states such as Missouri, Colorado, Kansas and Iowa like in-state recruits. Nebraska is the juggernaut University in the Midwest and Riley wants to capitalize on that fact on the recruiting trail. It's a great strategy ...

    Jack Stoll of Regis Jesuit High School in Aurora, Colorado, is rated as a three-star prospect by ESPN and Scout, and is yet to be rated by Rivals and 247Sports. New Husker head coach Mike Riley and offensive coordinator Danny Langsdorf plan to expand the role of the tight end in the new offense, and someone with Stoll's skillset would fit in nicely with how they plan to utilize the position. Nebraska hopes to upgrade the talent at tight end with the 2016 class and have identified Stoll as a priority. The Huskers already have a verbal commitment from in-state product Jared Bubak, who committed to the previous staff last September. With Bubak now strongly considering Arizona State, it is even more vital that Riley locks down perhaps his top target at the position - Stoll. Regardless of Bubak's future, Riley plans to sign a couple of tight ...

    Even by their historically ugly standards, 2015 has been a very bad year for the Nebraska Basketball program.

    Let's recap Nebrasketball's low-lights since the first of the year:

    • A 5-13 record, with an average margin of defeat of 13 points.

    • NU was winless on the road and 1-8 against conference foes that made the NCAA tournament. (It should be noted that lone win was over Michigan State, a Final Four team).

    • The team was locked out of their locker room and banned from media contact by Head Coach Tim Miles after an embarrassing home loss to Iowa.

    • The Huskers fell behind 13th seed Penn State by 16 points in the first round of the Big Ten tournament. A late rally gave the Big Red a chance to take the lead in the final minute, but they ended up losing by four.

    • Walt Pitchford announced he's quitting basketball to focus on getting his degree. Three days later, he had declared for the NBA draft.

    • After appearing in every game, promising freshman guard Tarin Smith decided to transfer.

    • Star forward and leading scorer Terran Petteway announced that he's forgoing his senior season to enter the NBA draft.

    • Assistant Coach Chris ...

    I've got a handful of post-Spring Scrimmage thoughts I'd like to share, but I want to focus on the two biggest Husker stories of the week:

    Former Husker linebacker and broadcaster Adrian Fiala passes away at age 67.

    Adrian Fiala was a standout linebacker on the Bob Devaney teams of the late 1960s. Although he graduated just before Nebraska won back-to-back national championships, he is widely credited for helping to elevate the team's play from 6-4 mediocrity to a 9-2 team on the cusp of greatness. Fiala was a two-sport standout, serving as a catcher on the Nebraska Baseball team.

    But for most Nebraska fans, Fiala's biggest impact was as a broadcaster. He was a fixture in the Husker broadcast booth between the end of the Pavelka/Sadlemeyer era and the current Sharpe/Davison team. He was a fixture on NET's Big Red Wrap-up show. He was blessed with a deep, booming voice, a humble folksy charm, and a level of preparation that inspired his colleagues. When you think of the greatest Husker moments between 1996 and 2010 - Stuntz to Crouch, Alex Henery's 57 yard field goal, and countless others - you could count on Adrian Fiala sharing your excitement and enthusiasm in the radio booth. Was he a homer for Dear Old Nebraska U? You bet your backside he was, and I never heard him apologize for supporting his home state alma mater with everything he had.

    Personally, ...

    Mike Riley concluded his inaugural spring at Nebraska in front of 76,881 diehard Cornhusker fans with the annual Red-White Spring Game at Memorial Stadium. Riley's former home, Reser Stadium, had a capacity of just 45,674 - roughly half of what Memorial Stadium holds. It's just another small reminder of the galactic shift in resources now available to him.

    Riley and his coaches spent these initial fifteen practices setting the groundwork for the program going forward. After being used to entering
