    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.

    Last year, a co-worker asked if I had ever seen a website called "Tunnel Walk of Shame". At the time, I had not. Five minutes later I'm laughing to the point of tears coming down my face.

    For those who are unfamiliar with the site, TWOS is what the creator calls a "web comic". In simplistic terms, he takes a bunch of pictures of Husker players and coaches, imposes text on them, and puts them into a slide show, creating a story. He posts a new one on www.tunnelwalkofshame.com* the day before every Nebraska game. The comics contain many recurring characters and running gags that make the whole thing funnier every time you read it.

    If you don't read this, you must start.  Seriously.

    *If you haven't seen TWOS, it is worth noting that the comics often contain language that you may not want displayed on your monitor in 48 point font.

    To put it another way: the standard TWOS comic contains more f-bombs than Bo Pelini being secretly recorded.

    For those of you wanting to know "Who writes Tunnel Walk of Shame?", you're not going to find that answer here. The lone condition for this interview was to not reveal his identity.

    But don't click away yet - the responses he gives are terrific: thoughtful, honest, funny, and from a perspective that gets how utterly ridiculous it is to live and die and obsess about 18 - 22-year-old kids. Personally, I think Husker fans could truly be the "Greatest Fans in College Football" if more people adopted his viewpoint.

    Buckle up and let's have some fun...

    This week, I heard a talk radio host say that Nebraska's 44-7 win at Purdue could end up being a turning point in Nebraska's season. With all due respect to that host (who I'm not going to name here), that's pure hyperbole.

    Nebraska's win wasn't exactly a surprise, and it sure wasn't a thing of beauty. I doubt there will be a big demand for DVDs of this game. I'm guessing there were many Nebraska fans who switched over to better games during the fourth quarter. All in all, this was a forgettable game against a team that is not very good. Should Nebraska win the division, I doubt they will look back and say "Man, that game at Purdue is where it all came together."


    While it wasn't a turning point, it was a perfect game for this team at this time. Their first road game - as much as any game in a stadium that would be half empty if not for the 15,000 Husker fans who snatched up tickets for pennies on the dollar. A to-be-expected off day for a redshirt freshman quarterback. Another soft offense for a young defense that is searching for confidence, experience, and success. A fairly easy win before another off week. The only way to improve upon the game would be to eliminate ...

    Well, we have reached the mid-season mark. I guess that means it is time to give you my conference rankings up until this point of the season. Since it is a bye week too I thought I would try something a little different with my rankings. Along with the rankings I have tried my best to compare each team to a different ...

    The sixth annual Husker Salute to the Troops was held last weekend (10/11-12) at the Cornhusker Marriott in Lincoln and was attended by over 400 current and former military members and their families. Over 70% of the attendees were there for the first time. Many of those attending were Wounded Warriors from Ft. Riley, KS and their bus received a large motorcycle escort ...

    This Just In…
    Cameo appearances by the Blackshirts and Joe Dailey cap an easy Husker victory.
    Purdue subdued, 44-7



    Husker D may be a wet paper bag, but the Boilermaker offense couldn’t punch through…

    At least not until the very end and even that was just a small tear in a bag that otherwise held up for four solid quarters on Saturday. Does it mean that this young defense is ready to take another swing at a top 25 team? Not so fast, but it does show growth and it was not that long ago that NU was getting gashed by Wyoming and ...

    For a game against their worst conference opponent in the last six years (2008 Iowa State and 2011 Minnesota are off the hook), Nebraska's 44-7 win at Purdue was more than a standard blowout, as the defense jumped ahead and the offense ran in place, flipping fans' ...

    Nebraska's first road game of the season turned out to be a field trip. It was a day for learning Saturday at West Lafayette, Ind.

    With sunny skies and temperatures in the 70s, near-laboratory conditions prevailed for the Cornhuskers' 44-7 rout of Purdue. What did ...
