    Nebraska rocks Miami…like a Hurricane
    Huskers prevail 41-31


    As the minutes ticked down on a nostalgic yet feisty contest, I couldn’t help but wonder if this win on this night was going to lead to something special this year. There was so much hype leading up to this game that you would have thought that the 11th battle between these two teams was going to decide the last spot in the newly created college football playoff this year.

    The ...

    Cameo appearances by the Blackshirts and Joe Dailey cap an easy Husker victory.
    Purdue subdued, 44-7



    Husker D may be a wet paper bag, but the Boilermaker offense couldn’t punch through…

    At least not until the very end and even that was just a small tear in a bag that otherwise held up for four solid quarters on Saturday. Does it mean that this young defense is ready to take another swing at a top 25 team? Not so fast, but it does show growth and it was not that long ago that NU was getting gashed by Wyoming and ...

    18 point lead evaporates, Huskers squashed 41-21

    Huskers are red, Bruins are blue, our defense is bad, but is our coaching staff too?…

    Well that was a head scratcher. Maybe it’s to be expected these days. I found myself in the middle of the second quarter pinching myself as our Huskers sprinted out to an 18 point lead. Was our team on the verge of a breakout, blowout win against a ranked opponent? Was it Nebraska on the receiving end of the other team’s misfortunes?

    I guess I pinched myself too hard because when I awoke, I found the same defensive meltdowns ...

    A-B-C- -E-F-G…wait….where’s the ‘D’?…

    Better athletes. More speed. Easily correctable mistakes. Coach speak…the hype of every offseason seems to bring out the true optimist in even the most skeptical of Husker fans.

    I, for one, bought into this hype. How could you not be optimistic? A seasoned, talented offense with ...

    Want a good Reed? Check out ‘From Marlowe to Afro’ a story about a big heart and big hair…

    Let’s imagine, for a minute, that the above mentioned book were written. What would it contain? Sure there is the easy story of how Kenny Bell has put himself in line to be one of the Husker greats, or how Tim Marlowe’s work ethic earned him a scholarship.

    One might point to a chapter of how to grow a glorious, yet sometimes hard to manage afro, along with ...

    One would think with how the value of gold has increased over the years that the Eagles of Southern Miss would stand to increase the value of their program twofold. They took a major step last year by going 12-2, beating National Championship contender Houston in the conference title game, ...

    It’s been quite the offseason.

    Watching the Penn State disaster unravel like a cheap oriental rug has been disturbing to say the least. A bit on that later, for now I want to focus on the upcoming season and what we as Husker fans can reasonably expect to see out of our beloved team.

    A lot of the national ...

    I wanted to take a bit of a different approach, a departure from the norm if you will. You see, under normal circumstances, I would not hesitate to poke fun at unfortunate circumstances, or venture my prose out into various shades of grey in attempt ...
