    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...

    What we saw on Offense: Mike Riley talked all offseason about wanting to commit to the run and his desire to be among the top three in the Big Ten. So far, so good. Nebraska is currently third in the Big Ten in rushing (22nd nationally) averaging 242 yards per game...

    Are the Huskers ready to make a statement?
    Here come the Ducks. This weekends matchup with Oregon has been on the back of Husker fans' minds since the 2016-17 home-and-home series was first announced back in October of 2013. Well, it's finally here, and Nebraska has a chance to show the country that they are headed in the right direction. Mike Riley has a chance to convince a few of the skeptics in Huskerland that he was the right choice to replace Bo Pelini - and that replacing Bo Pelini was the right choice....

    9-3 should be considered a huge success.
    Tragedy struck the Husker program when Sam Foltz died in a car accident during the late night hours of July 23, less than two weeks before the start of fall camp. Nebraska not only lost one of its best team leaders, it also lost one of the best punters in college football. Foltz likely had a long NFL career ahead of him based on his talents.

    Sam Foltz can't be 'replaced', but the candidates to handle the punting duties this season were true freshman...

    Defense poised for turnaround - can they find a pass rush?
    The defense needs more work and must take a step forward this season. Nebraska's pass defense was a dumpster fire for most of 2015, and the run defense - which actually ranked ninth nationally - gave up too many chunk plays (eight over 30 yards) against Big Ten foes. The numbers from last season are undeniably atrocious: The Huskers gave up 147 passing plays of 10 yards or more, which ranked 123rd nationally. They gave up eight passing plays of 50 yards or more. They...

    Nebraska days away from 2016.
    Quarterback: It's no secret. This offense - and team - will only go as far as Tommy Armstrong takes them. Nebraska's potential is inextricably tied to what it gets out of its senior quarterback, as much or more so than any team in the Big Ten this season. Armstrong (6-1, 220) has 33 career starts under his belt. Among Nebraska quarterbacks, Armstrong is second in career total offense (7,998 yards), career passing yards (6,691), career touchdowns...

    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.
