    I would have written this piece sooner, but I've been too verklempt just thinking about Bo Pelini's "touching" entrance into Memorial Stadium just before the kickoff in last Saturday's "Spring Fling" in Lincoln.

    Bo coming out of the tunnel holding a cat did it for me. That Bo! What a softie! And later, there was Bo yucking it up with the officials

    BO SHOULD THANK B1G FOR "LUCKY" 2013

    "Some luck lies in not getting what you thought you wanted but getting what you have which once you have got it you may be smart enough to see is what you would have wanted had you known."
    Garrison Keillor

    Thirteen is usually an unlucky number, but for last year's Husker football team, Bo Pelini, his staff ...

    Husker fans do not, I repeat, do NOT miss out on this rare opportunity to hang with former Husker football greats and to visit with legendary Husker head football coach Tom Osborne.

    How can you do this? Just come to this ...

    Because this is a short week, I'm going to write a brief column. First and foremost, the Huskers' 23-20 OT win Saturday in Happy Valley was a win that layers, coaches and fans should embrace for as long as they can.

    Make no mistake, PSU isn't a great team, but as beat up as the Huskers were going in to and during the game, only a group of players ...

    I'm not sure if I can recall a three-week period in recent Husker history when the fate of the Husker football program had swung so dramatically as has the last three weeks.

    RODENT LOSS

    Following the Huskers' double-digit loss at Minnesota October 26th (it still pains me to write those words), Nebraska's football season seemed to have hit rock bottom. Not since 1960 had the Cornhuskers lost to a Minnesota football team. Many of those games since then were Husker blowouts, including the last two won by Nebraska by a

    Don't look now, but with all the Huskers have been through this fall, most of the team's goals are still reachable: Win the Legends Division, win a conference championship, go to the Rose Bowl with a possible rematch with UCLA (?), win a BCS bowl game for the first time since 1999? Yup. It's all possible.

    At the half way point of the regular season we know this about the Husker football team.

    1.) The Husker defense (still can't call them the Blackshirts just yet) is getting better every week. The defense, once considered to be a huge liability, may prove to be one of the team's greatest assets. Continued experience and confidence for these young players is going to payoff later in the season.

    Husker fans and coaches (especially the coaches) should get down on their knees and thank the B1G officials who put together Nebraska's 2013 conference football schedule. They may have saved the jobs of the coaching staff and a lot of pain and suffering for Husker fans. And there are two big reasons why.

    Ohio State and Wisconsin.

    BOO PELINI?

    Anyone who thought Bo Pelini was going to be booed as he entered Memorial Stadium Saturday afternoon doesn't know Husker fans very well. First, and foremost, the Husker football program is bigger-much bigger than any one player, assistant coach, head coach, AD, Chancellor or anyone else you can ...

    LITTLE BO BLEEP-GATE?
    All is quiet in Lincolnville. Bo Pelini is still the Husker head coach and the planets are in alignment.. Fortunately for Husker fans, coaches, the University and the football program, "Bleep-Gate" had a short shelf life. That a two year old recording would have the impact it did, is surprising. But if the head coach on that tape is Bo Pelini and he's is dissing ...

    We all know what happened last year when the Huskers took on UCLA in the Rose Bowl. No, not the New Year's Day version but the one in Pasadena last September. The Huskers lost 36-30, and in the process, surrendered 344 rushing and 309 passing yards for an NU opponent record of 653 yards of total offense.

    And unfortunately Husker fans found out that this was
