    The recent addition of Donté Williams to the Husker staff has breathed new life into the recruitment


    The recent addition of Donté Williams to the Husker staff has breathed new life into the recruitment of several players who have been long-time targets. It has essentially reshuffled the Husker recruiting board at cornerback. When a coach switches schools, it's common practice for him to bring along his Rolodex and look in on the kids with whom he has built a strong relationship. The reason Nebraska can be so optimistic is because...

    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...

    Positive signs in offensive line, I-backs, turnover margin to name a few
    All kinds of bad things happened to Mike Riley at the end of games last season, so it was a nice change of pace to see a bunch of things go his way in the fourth quarter as Nebraska finished a 43-10 beatdown of Fresno State in front of 90,013 at Memorial Stadium.

    Remember those runaway fourth quarters under Tom Osborne — the ones where opposing defensive lines wilted under the weight of the NU running game and second- and third-teamers got valuable snaps? I didn’t think so. We haven’t seen...

    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...

    Bryant, Lee, Spielman offset a rough night for the Blackshirts as Huskers hold off Arkansas State
    Did you ever have one of those dreams where you’re almost safely home, but out of nowhere, a pursuing monster comes closer and closer, and the harder you run, the slower you move?

    Yeah, a real B-film climax. That’s what Nebraska-Arkansas State degenerated into. Luckily for Nebraska fans – at least the ones who stayed to the final play – it was a happy ending, thanks mainly to sophomore I-back Tre Bryant, quarterback Tanner Lee and redshirt freshman slotback J.D. Spielman.

    Backpedaling...

    Grim’s departure evidence Riley may really mean what he says about running the ball
    I was surprised and a bit disappointed when I heard that a freshman wide receiver has decided to pack up and leave the University of Nebraska after being on campus less than a year. But when I heard why, I felt better.

    Let me explain.

    Heading into the 2016 season, Nebraska quite likely has the best set of wide receivers in the Big Ten, but a bunch of unproven offensive and defensive linemen. That’s not the goal. In fact, it could be construed as having it backward. It’s not the way to win...

    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,...

    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...

    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...
