    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...

  1. Nicked up Nebraska Navigates a Needed Win by Knocking off the Knights in the Nineties

    On an extremely warm autumn afternoon, the Nebraska Cornhuskers rallied from a second half deficit and defeated the Rutgers Scarlet Knights 27-17 on Homecoming in Memorial Stadium. The loss extends the Rutgers conference losing streak to 15 games but the result was in doubt well into the 4th quarter. The 1-2 Huskers entered the contest after a turbulent week that saw Athletic...

    Riley changing the culture of the program with recent staff changes.
    When Mike Riley was hired to replace Bo Pelini following the 2014 season, he said he looked at the opportunity in Lincoln as "one last adventure." Critics of the hire lamented that Riley and his large contingency of Oregon State assistants were using Nebraska for one last payday before retirement. Turns out, those guys may have underestimated just how much Mike Riley wants to go out a winner.

    The pressure to win and win big is real and Mike Riley doesn't shy away from...

  1. Huskers Frolic on Friday as Blackshirts Deny Illini and Playmakers are Predominantly Proficient

    After a short week, the Nebraska Cornhuskers defeated an Illini team with thirteen days to prepare 28-6 in a workmanlike exhibition on the road in Champaign, Illinois. Granted the opponent entering this game had statistically the worst defense in the conference and was the worst passing team in the Big Ten. The Illinois defense ranked 96th in the country in rushing...

  1. Badgers Bludgeon Blackshirts as a Rookie Rolls amidst More Husker Muffs, Mistakes and Misses


    Nebraska’s 20-game home night game win streak ended Saturday as Wisconsin bullied the Huskers 38-17 on an evening dedicated to honoring the 1997 National Championship team. Unfortunately, the Badgers looked far more like that memorable unit than the current Husker product. Wisconsin responded to a 17-17 third quarter deadlock by running the ball 28 out of next 30 plays...

  1. Frost Fires up the Fans as a Family Husker Hire Hits a Homerun

    There have been dozens of articles written since the Nebraska hire of Scott Frost last Saturday, December 2, and his introductory press conference the following day. The scribes have covered every Frost angle from recruiting to offense and defense to the Peach Bowl to his family and even back to his undefeated 8th grade team in McCook. I may not write anything particularly new or original in these...

    In third season, clear progress by NU coach would bring healing to the Heartland
    How long will Husker Nation continue to be a house divided?

    When will the clamor about Mike Riley finally die down? At times, Nebraska fans seem like two nations at war. Can we reach a consensus on the nice guy from Corvallis who makes brilliant off-the-field decisions and proved that you can indeed persuade four- and five-star high school prospects to take a serious recruiting trip to Lincoln – but who already has a losing season at NU, and whose winning percentage as coach of the Big Red...

    Things are looking up, but the Huskers are probably a year away.
    The Nebraska football team put an exclamation point on the high school camp season. Husker coaches participated in satellite camps at Texas A&M (June 4), Texas-San Antonio (June 5), Florida Atlantic (June 8), Florida International (June 8), Mercer University in Macon, Georgia (June 7), Lindenwood University in St. Charles, Missouri (June 10), and the University of the Redlands in California (June 11). They also held camps in Lincoln on June 16 and 23.

    It was the team's...

    Nebraska adding talent to return to national stage
    With last week's addition of Booker T. Washington (Miami, FL) defensive end Guy Thomas, the Huskers now have 13 known commitments in their 2017 class. With 20 scholarship seniors, they probably have around 10-12 more spots to fill taking into account annual attrition. This is exactly where Mike Riley and his staff wanted to be at the halfway mark of the 2017 class. Nebraska wanted 12-15 kids on board by the time the season rolled around and they are right on track.

    But...

    Calling out an OWH columnist for trying to make 2+2=5
    Last year, Omaha World-Herald columnist Lee Barfknecht opined about how a "lack of toughness" within the program and athletic department was responsible for holding Nebraska back.

    Instead, it was little more than a platform for Lee to go through his big list of grievances about Shawn Eichorst, Mike Riley, and 'kids these days.'

    I had some fun taking Lee to task for some of his curious takes and flimsy logic,...
