    After a long spring where basketball (!?!) and baseball garnered important conversation in the pantheon of Husker athletics, it feels so weird to be writing about Husker football now. Usually by this point in the calendar, I feel like I've mulled over ten different paths for Nebraska's upcoming season, so my overthinking in the next few months will be kept to a minimum

    But just this week, there was a big piece of ...

    As many of you know, Gary McGirr and I (along with the rest of the Salute board members and donors) have been sponsoring the "Husker Fans Salute The Troops" celebration annually since 2008 at the Cornhusker Marriott Hotel in Lincoln, NE. This yearly event honors the men and women of the US Armed Forces and provides them with an exciting Husker football ...

    On Sunday, Husker baseball faced the sad truth: this year, they were the exception. Outside of Ryan Boldt and Michael Pritchard, they didn't have a slugger inspiring fear in an opposing pitching staff. As importantly, there was ...

    The initial installment of Husker Hot Takes was fun and fairly well received, so we'll do another round...

    1. The Athletic Department is advertising football season tickets for the first time in a long time. Should we be worried about the coveted sellout streak?

    Okay...technically, the ticket office is advertising the ability to join the wait list for season tickets. You go to a NU Ticket Office website, select how many tickets you would like, pay a non-refundable $25 deposit, and...that's as far as I went (I currently have tickets and don't currently have a need for more). My guess is in one of the next steps you're asked how much you'd be willing to donate for season tickets. My assumption is your response to that question plays a big role in where you end up in line. (Feel free to correct me where my assumptions are wrong).

    First off, does anybody remember the last time Nebraska was advertising football tickets for home games? In my freshman year at UNL (1993) a letter went out to parents of students giving them the opportunity to buy season tickets, but I'm not aware of anything since then. (Again, feel free to share information in the comments.) ...

    Khalil Davis

    Khalil Davis of Blue Springs High School in Blue Springs, Missouri, is rated as a four-star prospect by Rivals.com. Khalil and his brother Carlos were among the top priorities for this staff in regards to the upcoming 2015 class. The Davis twins received offers from the SEC, Big 12, Big 10 and Pac 12 before choosing Nebraska. Defensive line is an important position for the 2015 class and both Khalil and Carlos Davis were on top of the Husker coaches wish list. I had the opportunity to interview Khalil 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: For fun I like to go fishing. Carlos and I fish more than we play football.


    Q: At what age did you start playing football?


    A: I started playing football at the age of 6. My dad wanted us in sports as soon as possible!

    For it being a relatively slow time of year, there is a lot going on the world of Husker athletics. Things that are getting a lot of local and even national attention. Things that I have strong opinions on.

    Unfortunately, my opinions on these topics tend to be too long for Twitter (damn you, 140 characters!), but not quite beefy enough for a full post of their own.

    Therefore, I give you Husker Hot Takes - seven servings of delicious opinion, hopefully with no bad aftertaste.

    1. NU Baseball survives crazy road trip, but has to cancel game with Creighton.
    After NU's three game sweep at Michigan State, the Huskers had a hard time getting back to Lincoln. Cancelled flights, delayed buses, the fact that East Lansing is 725 stinkin' miles from Lincoln. I'm guessing during their 24 hour+ trip home, they quoted every single line from Planes, Trains, & Automobiles. As a result, Nebraska's game with Creighton had to be cancelled, and the 10,000 fans who bought tickets are likely out of luck. ...

    We all love the NFL draft. The merger between college football and the NFL, the celebration of our most-gifted Cornhuskers whose dreams came true. The oasis of football off-season, the draft breads anticipation to a new season of football...by seeing Nebraska roll over and help other players make millions of dollars.

    I ...

    It’s one of my favorite Sports Illustrated covers. The date: November 20, 1978. “Nebraska bursts Oklahoma’s bubble” shouts a bold teaser under the SI masthead. “Rick Berns shreds the Sooners” comes a secondary thought.

    Berns, a tall lanky I-back from Wichita Falls, Texas, shared backfield duties with Isaiah (I.M.) Hipp and both were key contributors to 1970s-style Husker football navigated by coach Tom Osborne.

    Recalling that SI cover brings back memories ...
