    One of the best things that came out of Big Ten media days was Shawn Eichorst revealing that Nebraska and Wisconsin were working on a rivalry trophy for their now-annual game. At least the Heroes' Game Trophy means that, whatever Eichorst and Barry Alvarez come up with, it won't be the worst trophy in the conference.

    Still, Nebraska needs at least one more, and maybe two or three other trophy ...

    Husker Dan is back for his 12th season covering Husker football! He's young, he's tan and he's rested! (Okay, so one out of three ain't bad.)

    Let's cut to the chase.

    DANGERFIELD?

    Most of the pre-season college football mags are underwhelmed by this year's Husker football team. And who can blame them? In each of his six years as the Husker head coach, Bo Pelini's teams have lost four games and some of those losses have been really ugly. Complicating matters, Pelini's teams have never won a conference title (three tries) and have had zero BCS bowl appearances.

    Moreover, Bo's teams have suffered one or more double digit losses every season he's been at Nebraska.. Last year, Pelini reached a personal high with 4 DDLs with a six year career total of 13. ...

    Nebraska-Oklahoma. For twenty years, the late-season game usually played a role in the national title chase and had fans on all sides mad-chatting for weeks before and after the game. After the series' annual discontinuation, Nebraska, bathed in time-honored respect for tradition, left a conference that it felt wasn't honoring the past for one that put the past and its rivalries first. Three years ...

    Tavin Richardson

    Tavin Richardson of Byrnes High School in Duncan, South Carolina, is rated as a high three-star prospect by the major recruiting sites. With offers from several schools in the SEC, ACC and Big Ten among several others, Richardson is considered one of the better wide receiver prospects in the south region for the 2015 class. Nebraska is looking to add one or two receivers to their current class and plan to be quite selective. Coaches have identified Tavin Richardson as a priority. Richardson is the kind of big-bodied receiver Husker coaches want to add to the roster. I had the opportunity to interview Tavin in an attempt to gain some insight into his recruiting experience. The following is a transcript from that:

    Q: What kind of things do you do for fun?

    A: I like to
    play basketball, video games and listen to music.

    Q: At what age did you start playing football?


    A: I started playing tackle football at 6-years-old.

    Q: What was your favorite college team growing up?


    A: My favorite college

    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 ...
