    A minimum of five first-team All-Big Ten selections is starting point for 2017 season
    If it seems like Nebraska football has lacked difference-makers on the field lately, that’s because it has. It’s the single biggest reason Nebraska has been a mid-level team ever since it joined the Big Ten.

    Bo Pelini inherited a respectable amount of talent, but couldn’t keep the pantry stocked. Mike Riley seems to be making progress in that department, but the jury is still out. For two years in a row, only one Nebraska football player has been selected as a first-team All-Big Ten player....

    A look at where the Huskers stand at a few positions heading into fall camp.
    Nebraska is in great shape at quarterback

    Glass half-empty guy might point to a vanilla defense worthy of praise from Baskin-Robbins as the reason four Nebraska quarterbacks completed 62-of-95 (65%) passes during the Red-White game. That might be the case, but we heard reports all spring of Tanner Lee and Patrick O'Brien completing passes at a 70% clip during practices. The spring game was not an anomaly. Mike...

    Husker Dan's Take on the Husker Spring Game
    Well, the 2017 Husker Spring Game is in the books. It was another step closer to fall camp and to the September 2nd season opener vs Arkansas State. There was a lot to like in the game, but many of the 78,312 red-clad Husker fans who were waiting to see the unveiling of Bob Diaco's 3-4 defense were left scratching their heads. Why? Because it was nowhere to be found. More about that later.

    On with my take on the game.

    As I just mentioned, new Husker DC...

    Four things Nebraska needs to develop between now and Sept. 2
    Dress rehearsal
    "The final practice of a play, opera etc., using all the clothes, objects that will be used for the actual performance."
    --Longman Dictionary of Contemporary English

    New Husker Defensive Coordinator Bob Diaco said at Tuesday's press conference that Saturday's spring game won't be an audition for his new 3-4 defense. He said it would be more like a dress rehearsal.

    But according to the above definition, the spring game will be anything but a dress...

    Riley is staking a lot on the success of Cavanaugh’s offensive line
    For decades, a tough, disruptive Blackshirt defense and a physical running game was the identity of Nebraska football. Yes, 1962-2001 was a pretty good run for the Huskers. Those days disappeared, but they’re not gone for good. Conference titles can return to the Cornhusker State; the components used to build them are still available.

    If Penn State’s football program can come back from the brink of death, under the leadership of someone fighting for his coaching life, it most certainly can...

    Mark this April event on your calendar
    Nebraska football fans looking for a football fix to tide them over until fall camp and Sept. 2 when the season begins need to mark another April Husker event on their calendars.

    Yes, the Husker Spring Game is coming up in Lincoln on April 15, but there is another Husker football event two days before that.

    What is it, you ask?

    It's a one-of-a-kind roast featuring legendary former Husker defensive coordinator Charlie McBride. For all you little whippersnappers who might be too young to...

    A quick look at the best ways to shorten the duration of major college football games
    As late as the the Turner Gill/Mike Rozier era, relatively few Nebraska home games were televised. Non-televised games typically started at 1:30 p.m. and usualy ended about 4:10, consuming about 2 hours, 40 minutes. Televised games ran longer, to be sure, but usually wrapped up in right about three hours.

    Is it possible to have too much of a good thing? The issue gained momentum after the latest College Football Playoff final between Clemson and Alabama lasted more than four hours.

    Diaco’s energy, healthy offensive line, launch of QB competition are highlights
    It seemed like the first day of summer vacation. It was Day One of Nebraska football spring drills, a movable feast day on the Old Cornhusker Fan Almanac calendar. With the kickoff of fall season still six months away, it was a moment in time to relish.

    In his on-field coaching debut as NU’s defensive coordinator, Bob Diaco unleashed his high-energy style on the Blackshirts. The early returns were encouraging. Diaco exuded intensity and set the tone for the day. Mike Riley certainly liked...

    With a department dedicated towards recruiting in the works, the staff turns its attention to 2018.
    Mike Riley has spent his first three years one upping himself on the recruiting trail. According to the 247Sports Composite Rankings, the Huskers have finished with the 30th, 24th and 23rd ranked classes during Riley's tenure. The 2015 class, underrated in my opinion, was a transition class compiled in just over 8 weeks - with over half of that time falling under the NCAA mandated Dead Period. The improvements and strides made on the trail have been impressive during...

    Any scheme requires winning one-on-ones to make it work
    The arrival of Bob Diaco and his switch to a 3-4 defense has brought much anticipation to Husker Nation. It will bring many questions long before the first game this fall, but for me, one tops them all.

    Will it generate an effective pass rush? In my opinion, that’s the most important step to creating a disruptive, turnover-causing defense. The Huskers created only 19 takeaways last fall, which ranked 67th among all major-college teams. That included 16 interceptions, which were mainly due...
