    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 ...

    With the beloved sellout streak at 333 games, the Husker athletic department is promoting season tickets for the first time in ages, and alarmist are crying, “We can't possibly lose this final streak that began in the 1960's!” Please. Fans should not feel guilted ...

    While I form my own opinions on Nebraska football based on our local news outlets and blogs, I crave Phil Steele's Nebraska preview every year for outside perspective. Typically, Steele (his my first, and some years, only college football magazine) gives a few insights ...

    DaiShon Neal

    DaiShon Neal of Central High School in Omaha, Nebraska, is a consensus three-star rated prospect. Neal is arguably the best player in the state of Nebraska for the class of 2015. A player with huge upside, Neal is one of the more intriguing defensive end prospects in the Midwest region. With the likely departure of Randy Gregory to the NFL following his upcoming junior season, along with the continued uncertainty surrounding Avery Moss' future in Lincoln, the Huskers will be looking for help at defensive end with this 2015 class. I had the opportunity to interview DaiShon in an attempt to gain some insight into his recruiting experience. The following is a transcript from that: ...

    It appears the game of college football recruiting is about to be changed. I hope the changes will enhance the experience of the incoming players better than they have for the past couple of decades.

    Let's allow talented high school football players to sign letters of intent early and enjoy their senior year if they choose, instead of ...

    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 ...

    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.) ...

    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. ...
