    You can say what you want about Bo Pelini's tenure at Nebraska, but it's seldom boring, or without performances that take your breath away right when you were about to start chanting, “Fire Pelini!” What we witnessed Saturday afternoon was a man who found a ten years' worth of luck last year have just a little left over. Check ...

    When the most arrogant athletic director in America canned Frank Solich in 2003, it was clearly the wrong move, rushing off an older coach who may have soon retired anyway. When Tom Osborne dismissed Bill Callahan, it was a clear sweeping away of an NFL assistant out of place. Even if Nebraska looses out from here, getting rid of Bo ...

    Nebraska would have been better off playing at Michigan this week instead of hosting Northwestern. If Nebraska were playing in the Big House against the mighty Maize and Blue, they could go in with an us-against-the-world mentality, like they ...

    I’ll admit up front that I have never been the biggest Taylor Martinez fan. I always thought Cody Green had more potential and thought Green never really got a fair shake at Nebraska. I still wonder what he would be like if he had been given the time to ...

    Prior to the game, I was giving some thought about what I was going to write in this space. Since I - like almost everybody else - was expecting a fairly easy Nebraska victory, I was planning to look ahead to November, to the stretch run that will make or break Nebraska's season.

    I had planned to throw in a line about how the boring part of the schedule (October games against Illinois, Purdue, and Minnesota) was over, and with games against Northwestern, Michigan, Michigan State, Penn State, and Iowa, it was about to get very interesting.

    But then Nebraska goes up to Minnesota and gets smacked in the face to the tune of a 34-23 loss. The doubt and drama that clouded this team after the UCLA game has resurfaced, and likely will grow more intense in the next five weeks.

    My original thoughts still hold true: this stretch run will define Nebraska's season, and it is about to get very, very interesting. But the stakes have been raised: instead of make or break for the season, it is increasingly looking like make or break for this coaching staff.

    Who knows how it all turns out? The same ...

    With five minutes left in the game, trailing 27-23, Taylor Martinez and the Nebraska offense came onto the field. They were 91 yards from a go-ahead touchdown. Despite a sluggish performance, Martinez and the Husker offense had a chance to steal a close game on the road. It's the kind of thing that big-time quarterbacks do to beat good teams and put themselves in position to win conference championships.

    It is 2:30 on Saturday, November 2? No, it's going to be a long week until the Huskers kick off again. The longest since after Wisconsin in 2011.

    Three years into a conference where teams run the ball to a fault, it should be a surprise that ...

    What do all of the above have in common? At one point in their career, they were the most popular player in the state: Nebraska's backup quarterback.

    After his impressive debut in Nebraska's 59-20 romp over South Dakota State, we added a new name to this storied list: Tommy Armstrong, Jr.. Time will tell if he follows the career path of Frazier, Crouch, and Gill or that ...

    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.

    2.)
