    All season, I'll be ranking the teams in the Big Ten from one to Maryland. To see my predictions for how the season will play out, click here.

    As always, if you think I’m right, wrong, or clinically insane, let me know in the comments.

    Prepare to disagree…


    1. Ohio State - Yeah, I know the Buckeyes are still not clicking on all cylinders. But a game with Maryland should be a good way to work out some of the kinks.

    2. Michigan State - What do the Spartans have to do to jump Ohio State? For starters, they can avoid falling asleep at the wheel like they ...

    At the top of the unofficial "Ten Commandments of Husker Football" for coaches and players should be:

    "Thou shalt not be disrespectful of Husker football fans, the football program, the University of Nebraska or the state of Nebraska."

    Which brings to mind the two dissing incidents directed toward Husker fans by starting senior Husker LT and co-captain, Alex Lewis. Lewis, if you will recall, was a Colorado player who pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor assault charge in an incident back in 2013 in Colorado. He was sentenced to 45 days in jail and

    For the second time in five games, NU went from being seconds away from sealing a victory, to unwrapping a miraculous defeat. The initial reactions to each adventure differed dramatically. Stunned silence followed the BYU game and morphed into accountability for mistakes by the staff. Immediately ...

    This coming Saturday, Mike Riley will try and keep Nebraska's season from coming off the rails. The Huskers should be 4-1, but the fact is they are 2-3 - and off to their worst start since 1959. There are only so many 'moral victories' or 'lessons to be learned' that the team can take away from its three losses and the manner in which they have lost them. Eventually, you have to wonder if these losses will start to weigh on the psyche of the team. ESPN's Mitch Sherman pointed out recently that in the season-opening, Hail Mary loss to BYU, Nebraska's ...

    No Champaign for this team,
    Huskers fall in heartbreaking fashion 14-13

    Ok let me be the first to apologize for the knee jerk reaction. After the game I was upset, as I am sure most everyone out there in Husker land is. I would

    You say you're coming home but you won't say when
    But I can feel it coming
    If you leave tonight keep running
    And you need never look back again

    You take it on the run baby
    If that's the way you want it baby
    Then I don't want you around
    I don't believe it
    Not for a minute
    You're under the gun so you take it on the run

    Saturday was a rare date night for me and my beautiful wife. With Grandma watching the kiddos, we caught the second half of the game from a neighborhood bar before heading downtown for dinner and drinks. After the Illinois game's painful final minute, I tried to put a gut-wrenching loss out of my mind. I switched the radio from the postgame hot take shows to a classic rock station. The first song to come on was REO Speedwagon's "Take it on the Run", the chorus of which goes like this:

    You take it on the run baby
    If that's the way you want it baby
    Then I don't want you around
    I don't believe it
    Not for a minute
    You're under the gun so you take it on the run

    Needless to say, I just turned the radio off and focused on having a fun night with my wife.

    In the Saturday Omaha World-Herald, Sam McKewon said "The National Weather Service is predicting ...

    Mike Riley should have listened to Tom Osborne.

    You’ll recall the new Husker coach met the Hall of Famer shortly after he was hired last December. Afterward, Osborne mentioned that he had talked about the running game briefly with Riley.

    It appears Riley smiled and nodded a lot. He probably should have taken a few notes. Heck, I really hoped that he did. Turns ...

    I've had enough.

    Nebraska's uninspiring 2-2 start has me wondering just what is going on with our beloved program. Yeah, I hear you say that they are two plays away from 4-0, but to me that is the same as telling me I'm a $1 lottery ticket away from being a millionaire - irrelevant.

    I've seen enough football to know when something isn't working - and friends, this ain't working.

    We need changes. And we need them now.

    Where should we begin? Let's start with defensive coordinator Mark Banker. Hello? Have you seen the passing defense? Even Kevin Cosgrove is embarrassed by this defense. You say that his rush defense is actually pretty good? I don't care. Nebraska plays in the Big Ten West, a division so dedicated to rushing offenses that the forward pass is still a novelty. But Joel Stave, Mitch Leidner, and whoever plays quarterback for Northwestern are going to throw for 450 yards against Nebraska, probably in the fourth quarter alone. Get Banker out of here - now.

    While we're at it, let's get rid of secondary coach Brian Stewart. You know the problem with Daniel Davie this year? Nobody is yelling at him. I believe that for Davie to be an effective cornerback, he needs a coach willing and able to scream at him on national TV. You know Riley is too soft to get the job done, so that puts it on Brian Stewart. Apparently he's not up to the task either, so he's got to go.

    And don't get me started on the front seven of this defense. Everybody says that Trent Bray is this hotshot up and coming linebacker coach, but he can't get three starters on the field at the same time. Instead he's playing guys like Chris Weber. Did you know he's not the Chris Webber from the Michigan Fab Five team? No, this Chris Weber is some white kid from Elkhorn.

    Up front on the line, I have no idea what is going on. Maliek Collins has yet to become an all time great player like Ndamukong Suh. Heck, Collins may not even be the best player on the line this year. That would be a former tight end. Hank ...
