  1. The .500 Huskers jumped for joy following yesterday's 27-17 win over perennial bottom feeder Rutgers. The Scarlet Knights, if you'll recall, haven't won a B1G conference game since 2015. But the Scarlet Knights led Nebraska 7-0 and had a 17-14 third-quarter lead before caving in to a steady Husker running attack.

    And, sadly, Tanner Lee threw yet another pick-six in the third quarter, silencing the nearly 90,000 Husker faithful.

    BROKEN RECORD?
    To be sure, Lee has thrown three...

  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...

    Blackshirts gain momentum, Pierson-El delivers big play as beat-up Huskers edge Rutgers
    It was not a jubilant crowd that filed out of Memorial Stadium in the Saturday evening twilight. It was more like a big, collective exhale. There was friendly banter here and there, but lots of furrowed foreheads and much quiet, purposeful walking.

    Don’t read too much into that. Nebraskans, after all, are a fairly stoic bunch. But they’re smart football fans, and they know just how much work their team has ahead of it just to reach the middle of the Big Ten West, let alone to contend for...

    Although some question timing, nearly 90 percent back president and chancellor in decision


    The Husker Nation has been profoundly divided on various issues lately, but the firing of Athletic Director Shawn Eichorst by President Hank Bounds and Chancellor Ronnie Green does not seem to be one of those issues.

    For this week’s pregame survey, I went to the University of Nebraska-Lincoln campus to get 100 people to respond to this question:

    “Do you agree or disagree that the University’s president and chancellor made the right...

    Who will win the East & West?
    This is the first full weekend of Big Ten action, which means it is time for some predictions* on how the teams will finish in the respective divisions.

    *Or, given some of my history with prognosticating, blind guesses.

    For today, we'll predict by division. Throughout the season, we'll do a power ranking 1-14. Let's dive right in with the East.

    East

    1. Ohio State. I know, I know. They have looked pedestrian (by their standards) in the first few weeks, and they...

    Riley, Huskers reach pivotal crossroads
    Nebraska essentially paid Northern Illinois $820k to put its head coach on the hot seat. Following an inexcusable 21-17 loss to the Huskies, Nebraska is now sitting at 1-2 - and could very easily be 0-3 - heading into conference play. Mike Riley is in year 3 and losing to MAC teams coming off a 5-7 season should not be happening. Northern Illinois came into this game having lost 11 of their last 17 games. They were also without their starting quarterback.

    Nobody...

    What went wrong, and a few things that went right
    How do you sum up one of the most shocking losses in school history?

    How do you accurately account for all of the things that went wrong?

    How does a loss like this impact the big picture - for Mike Riley, Shawn Eichorst, and the program as a whole?

    Frankly, I don't know. I'm still processing it. So I'm going to pass on any sweeping proclamations, knee jerk reactions, scalding hot takes, or calls for anybody to be fired.

    For now.

    So what did we learn?

    This is going to be a...

    Lack of o-line development continues to hold back Riley and Cornhuskers
    Endless Summer. That sounds like carefree days indeed. Were the Beach Boys thinking of Mike Riley’s Nebraska football program when they recorded that album?

    Unfortunately for Riley and his coaching staff, it’s September now and they have to play real football games. After a brutally disappointing 21-17 loss to Northern Illinois, the Huskers are 1-2 and reeling.

    A coach who knows how to make a fan base feel good in the offseason now has to deal with a Husker Nation deflated by his inability...

    What will happen once conference play begins?
    No. Illinois 21-Nebraska 17

    Let that sink in for awhile. Nebraska finished the non-con season going 1-2 against three unranked teams. And the lone win was against Arkansas State in a game that came down to the last play. And with that scare, Nebraska could very easily be 0-3.

    And what is going to happen once conference play begins? This season could get ugly. Real ugly.

    GUT CHECK?
    Tanner Lee had another subpar performance today against NIU, but Lee's O-line didn't do...

    ’Skill positions’ generally have Husker fans’ confidence; o-line … not so much
    My Pregame Perspective question this week centered on the Husker offense. On a rainy morning before the Nebraska-Northern Illinois kickoff, I asked, “Which offensive position group has the most potential?” My intent was to find out what part of the offense has the highest ceiling.

    The answers were quite balanced, which perhaps is appropriate for the sort of pro-style offense that Mike Riley and Danny Langsdorf envision.

    The wide receiver group barely edged out the quarterback group for top...
