    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 ...

    Before we turn our attention to the flood of coach speak and clichés from Big Ten media days in Chicago, let's review some of the things in the news recently:

    1. College Football country is in a Watch List warning.

    July is the time when every college football award puts out their preseason watch list. The Huskers were well represented with Ameer Abdullah, Randy Gregory, and Kenny Bell (among others) making a list. Personally, I've always thought watch lists were rather silly. The lists aren't exactly exclusive: do we really need to watch 53 running backs for the Doak Walker Award? That is over 40% of the starting running backs in FBS. Nor is the award limited to the preseason candidates - Jameis Winston won the 2013 Walter Camp Award, but he wasn't on the watch list. And there are the curious or obligatory choices: no disrespect to Mark Pelini, but I'm pretty sure it is a Rimington Award bylaw that Nebraska's starting center be placed on their watch list.

    About the only good thing watch lists do is help pass the time until the season starts.

    2. Attention recruits: Nebraska is not one big cornfield (and the people are nice too!)

    Nebraska ...

    Oct 5, 2013; Lincoln, NE, USA; Nebraska Cornhuskers running back Imani Cross (32) runs against Illinois Fighting Illini defenders Jaylen Dunlap (28) and Zepheniah Grimes (33) during the fourth quarter at Memorial Stadium. Nebraska won 39-19.

    Imani Cross looks like a power running back, and when he's at his best, he actually is one.

    An effective Imani Cross is just what the Cornhuskers need this season as a complement to All-America candidate Ameer Abdullah. The problem is that to this point, Cross has proven he can be effective, but not consistent. Will this be the year the junior from Gainesville, Georgia, realizes his potential?

    From the outset, Cross seemed to be the type of back you can rely on to get a first down on third-and-short. But the first two years of his career ...

    This off-season, the NCAA decided the “Big 5” football conferences would be granted more autonomy in making decisions, a necessary step toward ensuring that the large football-playing schools can better provide for their student athletes. With new TV contracts, conference networks, and online-streaming ...

    Eric Lee of Valor Christian High School in Highlands Ranch, Colorado, is a consensus four-star prospect by all four major recruiting sites. Lee became the first player to pledge to Nebraska's class of 2015, committing during the Huskers' Junior Day in February. Recently invited to play in the Semper Fidelis All-American Bowl, Lee plans to enroll at NU in January, along with close friend and fellow defensive back Avery Anderson. Universally considered one of the best cornerbacks in the Western United States, Lee is arguably the most valuable recruit currently committed to the Huskers. I had the opportunity to interview Eric in an attempt to gain some insight into his recruiting experience. The following is ...

    As the kick off of the 2014 season draws closer, I try to think when the last time that Nebraska went into a season with this much uncertainty. It is the first time since 2009 that there is a quarterback with fewer than ten starts is on the roster. Even in 2008 with a new coaching staff, there were players like Joe Ganz, ...

    With the beloved sellout streak at 333 games, the Husker athletic department is promoting season tickets for the first time in ages, and alarmist are crying, “We can't possibly lose this final streak that began in the 1960's!” Please. Fans should not feel guilted ...

    While I form my own opinions on Nebraska football based on our local news outlets and blogs, I crave Phil Steele's Nebraska preview every year for outside perspective. Typically, Steele (his my first, and some years, only college football magazine) gives a few insights ...

    DaiShon Neal

    DaiShon Neal of Central High School in Omaha, Nebraska, is a consensus three-star rated prospect. Neal is arguably the best player in the state of Nebraska for the class of 2015. A player with huge upside, Neal is one of the more intriguing defensive end prospects in the Midwest region. With the likely departure of Randy Gregory to the NFL following his upcoming junior season, along with the continued uncertainty surrounding Avery Moss' future in Lincoln, the Huskers will be looking for help at defensive end with this 2015 class. I had the opportunity to interview DaiShon in an attempt to gain some insight into his recruiting experience. The following is a transcript from that: ...
