    Running Backs coached by Reggie Davis


    No position group on the entire roster had bigger shoes to fill heading into fall camp than Nebraska's running backs. They had the difficult task of finding a replacement for one of the most productive backs in program history. Ameer Abdullah finished his Husker career with

    Quarterbacks coached by Danny Langsdorf


    The Nebraska football team wrapped up Fall Camp last Saturday, as the Huskers conducted their second major scrimmage. Classes started on Monday and the roster expanded by around 25-30 players. The coaches' and players' focus has now shifted to the BYU Cougars and the upcoming season. With position battles

    As excited as I am for Drew Brown (or BYU's kicker) to put his toe to leather and start the 2015 Nebraska season, it's not just because I love and miss football. It's because I've read so much abut Mike Riley, the new ...

    This year, I made two trips to Kansas for work, and I made a point of visiting both Manhattan and Lawrence to see their respective major university campuses and stadiums. The stadium named after the Wildcats' legendary coach, Bill Snyder Family Stadium, is a dazzling gem of limestone, ...

    There have been some rumors over the past few months about the Big 12 looking for teams to reach a conference total of 12 (up from its current 10) so that it can qualify for a conference title game.

    And not surprisingly, Nebraska is at the top of many of those lists. But as quickly as the rumors surface, they get shot down by most sports pundits. And why not? Nebraska could never afford, financially, to leave the B1G and maybe more importantly, would never climb in bed again with a conference that included the Texas Longhorns. Right?

    MOUNTAINEERS?
    Probably. However, to say NU would never make a move to another conference might also be a stretch. Consider this: Who would ever have thought Missouri and Texas A&M would bolt to the SEC conference, Colorado and Utah would jump to the Pac 12 and West Virginia (gasp!) would glom

    It was a fervent seven days for the University of Nebraska football team and its newest addition, blue-chip running back Jordan Stevenson. It was the kind of week that only serves to remind just how confident fans should be in the new recruiting staff. Things unfolded quickly with Stevenson, and Husker support staffers Ryan Gunderson ...

    In November, Shawn Eichorst fired Bo Pelini because Nebraska doesn't think it should be an afterthought to Wisconsin. On Thursday, Nebraska made what could be one of its first substantial moves to pass Wisconsin in the ...

    Halloween 1992 was one of those memorable days when everything went right for the Nebraska football team. A 52-7 beatdown of an eighth-rated Colorado team in the rain and fog of Memorial Stadium could be considered the ultimate in feel-good football for Husker fans riled up by two losses and a tie in the previous three games against the Buffaloes. Satisfying, no doubt, but certainly not one of the Cornhuskers’ best performances of all time. In fact, it wasn’t even Nebraska’s best performance against Colorado during the 1990s. Bill McCartney was making an awkward transition from the option to a pro-style passing attack, and the slightly overrated Buffs (who finished 9-2-1) were without an effective running game in 1992. In my view, to merit a best performance designation, Nebraska has to defeat a truly worthy opponent.

    What are the best regular-season performances by Nebraska football teams since the arrival of Bob Devaney? As you look through my list below, you’ll find echoes of the memorable Nebraska-Oklahoma series that ran uninterrupted from 1928 through 1997 and forced the Huskers to step up their game. You’ll find only five nonconference games.

    There’s so much material to choose from and so little space to use

    The 2015 Nebraska Cornhusker alternate uniforms are out for their typical rounds of scorn, but let's be real here: if Adidas hadn't completely bombed with the 2014 alternates, we'd say these uniforms are pretty good.

    There's two things about these uniforms that say that Adidas and Nebraska are trying. One, they went back to

    Today is the day that some of us look forward to and others dread: alternate uniform reveal day. Nebraska will wear these October 24th against Northwestern.*

    *Apparently, Nebraska is telling Northwestern "we'll see your ugly black uniforms, and raise you one."

    Let's dive in, piece by piece.

    Helmet:

    Like last year, the lid was easily the highlight of the ensemble. When a picture of the matte black helmet with the classic sans-serif "N" was released late Wednesday night, I was cautiously optimistic that I would like this year's uniforms.

    In my opinion, this helmet represents what a Nebraska alternate uniform should strive to be: different, yet recognizable. Trendy, yet classic. Without question, this is my favorite component of any Husker alternate to date.

    Could this be the year that I go from grudging acceptance to full-on love? Could adidas redeem their battered reputation with Husker fans with a grand slam design?

    Grade: A

    Jersey:

    Nope.

    Goodness...where to even begin with this thing? Let's start with the pattern in the jersey. The adidas press release says "the jersey's padlock system secures tension over the shoulder pads, while the bodymap fit adheres to the player, making it difficult for opponents to grab, hold or tackle."

    Uh-huh. Sure. Bummer about not being able to tackle us Northwestern.

    You can call it whatever you want. I say it looks like tire treads, which when combined with the diagonal slits going through the numbers, makes it look like the uniforms were run over by a truck (Wisconsin fans, feel free to insert a Melvin Gordon joke here).

    Speaking of the numerals, they are rather reminiscent of the duct tape numbers from last year's jersey. Hopefully, the addition of the silver - sorry, "forged steel" - outline will make them easier to read from row 47. I'm not optimistic.

    One of my biggest criticisms of adidas is how they put all of their schools through a generic template and fail to do anything unique - even for a once-a-year special jersey. For the most part, that holds true: compare these to the new adidas uniforms for UCLA,
