    Rickey Preston of Hahnville High School in Boutte, Louisiana, is rated as a three-star prospect by the major recruiting sites. Along with current commit Nekyle Lundie, who could also play safety for the Huskers, Nebraska would like to add another couple receivers to this class. Coaches would like to add a big-bodied type and someone who is more of a speed guy that could work out of the slot and perhaps contribute on special teams as well. Preston fills the criteria for the latter.

    Nebraska has been trying to get into places like Louisiana and Georgia a lot more over the past few classes and they have identified Preston as one of the better receivers in the Pelican State.
    I had the opportunity to interview Rickey in an attempt to gain some insight into his recruiting experience. The following is a transcript from that:

    In the aftermath of the Huskers' implausible near comeback Saturday night at East Lansing, Michigan, we hear that apparently those wascally wicked Spartans used a bit of chicanery to help achieve the victory.

    What's that, you ask? What did Sparty do that was so underhanded? Well, according to NU head coach Bo Pelini, MSU defensive players attempted to confuse the Husker center, Mark Pelini (coach's nephew), into thinking the snap count was coming sooner than he thought.

    (For the past few years, the Huskers have used hand claps to let the center know when to hike ...

    Prior to Saturday night's game, Nebraska had played in two primetime Big Ten games on the road against ranked teams since joining the Big Ten, and neither game was competitive: #8 Nebraska lost to #7 Wisconsin 48-17 in 2011, and in 2012 the 21st ranked Huskers were blasted by #12 Ohio State 63-38. Saturday night turned out to be a rerun of an old movie for Nebraska, who for three quarters were thoroughly dominated by Michigan State.

    The Huskers are now 0-9 in road games against Top 10 teams since ...

    Nebraska's 27-22 loss at Michigan State Saturday night revealed a few things. We found out that despite having Ameer Abdullah and Randy Gregory, possibly the two best players in the Big Ten, Nebraska is not a playoff threat. The Huskers have too much immaturity at quarterback ...

    Author's note: A lot of you are about to read will make reference to the uniforms Nebraska wore against Illinois. While I was not a fan of this version going in, these things impacted my game experience like nothing else in the 30+ years I've been a fan. I was not able to view the game the way I'm used to watching it, which makes it very tough for me to write about the way I'm used to doing it. Know that going in...

    I'm not going to pull any punches: I absolutely hated the alternative uniforms Nebraska wore against Illinois. H -A - T - E, hate.

    I can deal with an all red get-up. I can deal with a two tone helmet (even if it may have a hidden message inside it). I can deal with Nebraska being adidas's guinea pigs for new innovation and design. I understand why Nebraska does the alternate uniform thing, the benefits it supposedly brings, etc. Yes, I have not been a fan of any of the three alts NU has worn to date (2012, 2013, 2014), but when NU wears them I put on my big boy pants and deal with it, because at the end of the day it doesn't impact me directly.

    But on Saturday night, the "Red Rising" uniforms impacted me directly.

    The black lettering on the back of the red jersey made it impossible to read the names on the jerseys. The shiny, almost reflective numbers and a very closed font made it extremely difficult to know who was who. That is a big problem for me.

    I go to games to see the things TV doesn't show me. I want to watch the linemen, I want to see plays develop and receivers coming open, I want to see the defense react to the ball. Most importantly, when the play is done I want be ...

    "An amount of time for a situation in which something can be done; a favorable juncture of circumstances; a good chance for advancement or progress."
    -- Merriam Webster's dictionary

    Well, there you have it. A perfect description of Saturday night's showdown with the #10 ranked Michigan State Spartans in East Lansing, Michigan.

    I've heard from a number of Husker fans (and you know who you are) who are almost willing to concede the game.

    "If we lose to Michigan State, no big deal. We

    This coming Saturday, #19 Nebraska (5-0) goes on the road to East Lansing to take on #10 Michigan State (3-1), the perceived favorites in the Big Ten conference. A win against the Spartans would give the Huskers control of their own destiny in the Big Ten West, with a game in mid-November at Wisconsin looming large. The showdown has been given a primetime billing and will be seen on ABC (8pm EST). This game gives Nebraska the chance to serve notice nationally as the premier ...

    Sep 27, 2014; Lincoln, NE, USA; Nebraska Cornhuskers quarterback Tommy Armstrong Jr. (4) throws against Illinois Fighting Illni in the second half at Memorial Stadium. Nebraska won 45-14. Mandatory Credit: Bruce Thorson-USA TODAY Sports

    During the first quarter of last night's homecoming game, it seemed the Huskers might have been peeking ahead towards next weekend's showdown with Michigan State. After the manhandling of the Fighting Illini last year in Lincoln, many fans were probably looking ahead to the Spartans game as well. After the opening drive by Illinois resulted in an easy touchdown, you could almost hear the ears perk up in Memorial Stadium.

    Luckily the fast start ...
