When Ohio State was pummeling Nebraska on prime time TV, some boos reigned down on the field. It was hard for me to see, because the camera cut away, but it appeared that Bo Pelini made a gesture to the crowd to express his displeasure. No, he didn’t give fans the finger, but he waved […]

Nebraska fans often like the Chiefs, Vikings or Broncos on Sunday. But I’m liking the 3-2 Washington Redskins on Sunday now. Because that’s where Roy Helu, Jr., Niles Paul and DeJon Gomes play. According to The Washington Post, Coach Mike Shanahan is a big Helu fan. Once you have to teach a running back how […]

Bo Pelini is a hot head in need of some cooling. After a critical article by Omaha World-Herald reporter Dirk Chatelain appeared in the paper last week, Pelini freaked. And his freak out continued into the post-game press conference on Saturday night, much to his own detriment and by extension to the university’s detriment. Jump […]

All 1800 hotel rooms in Laramie were booked as of last May, and some Husker fans bought Wyoming season tickets so they would have a ticket to last Saturday’s game. Yes, Husker fans travel well. And now that Madison, Minneapolis, State College and Ann Arbor are on the slate this fall, Husker fans have all […]

We’re 4-0 and ranked in the top ten in the nation, but I am not happy with what we’ve seen from Nebraska this September. Perhaps, I am too demanding when it comes to Nebraska football. Or maybe I’m just a fan who’s concerned that we’re going to get creamed by Wisconsin and Ohio State. Our […]

Like the players, fans sometimes need a day to recover from Saturday’s game, either because they drank too much, or because the quality of play was otherwise upsetting. I’m glad Nebraska pulled out the win against Fresno State, and stretched the score in the fourth, but the first three quarters of play was like a […]

Omaha World Herald writers Jon Nyatawa and Sam McKewon discuss today’s game against the Bulldogs from Fresno State. Give the first-ever Big Red Today podcast a listen. These guys know their stuff. Nebraska has a 21-game winning streak against WAC teams. But Coach Pat Hill is a salty veteran who has gone head-to-head with some […]

NU’s Media Relations department was able to put together a nice highlight reel from Saturday’s opener, but it doesn’t tell the whole story of Nebraska’s 40-7 victory over Tennessee Chattanooga. Brian Christopherson of Lincoln Journal Star reports that the players didn’t like what they saw on film. “I know we all watched (the film) Sunday […]

Sportswriting in the hands of a master is a thing to behold. And Nebraska has its own Frank Deford on the Huskers beat. His name is Sam McKewon and he works for Omaha World Herald, following the superlative job he did for Nebraska State Paper. Writing is a craft, and craftsmen sends zingers out into […]

Adam Rittenberg and Brian Bennett are ESPN.com writers and authors of Big Ten Blog, which just named Jared Crick the league’s No. 1 player, despite the fact that he has yet to play in a Big 10 game. Of course, the writers have excellent reasons for doing so… Crick isn’t ranked No. 1 solely because […]

Pat Forde of ESPN.com argues that “The Big Ten has become the dual-threat capital of college football.” Thanks to the arrival of Nebraska, the league has the nation’s top three returning quarterbacks in rushing: Denard Robinson of Michigan (131 yards per game), Taylor Martinez of the Cornhuskers (74 yards per game) and Nathan Scheelhaase of […]

I’m happy that the Huskers are an adidas school. I know the season’s first snap has yet to occur, but I’m chomping at the bit for a face-off in a big bowl game against a marquis Nike team like Oregon. I’m sure the Frost family would also enjoy that particular spectacle. Update 7/27/12 If you […]

Offensive Line Coach, Barney Cotton, is a passionate teacher. Which is great, because the offense is running a new scheme this fall under first-year Offensive Coordinator, Tim Beck. Randy York of Huskers.com talked to Cotton about the upcoming season and what we can expect to see differently. The biggest thing is we want to play […]

Brandon Kinnie is ready for his senior season, and we the people of the Corn, are ready to see Kinnnie in the end zone every Saturday from now until January. Check out this video of the cool and collected sociology major, as he comes off the practice field. The 6-3, 225-pound Kinnie provides Nebraska quarterbacks […]

Former Kansas head coach, Mark Mangino, really likes Nebraska’s new offensive coordinator, Tim Beck. Mangino had Beck on his Jayhawk staff from 2005 through 2007 and when the Omaha World Herald called, Mangino had a lot of great things to say. â??I think Bo hit it out of the park when he named Tim his […]

The Huskers lucked out in the year end polls. Despite dropping three of their last four games, Nebraska ended the season ranked 19th and 20th in the USA Today coaches’ poll and the Associated Press writers poll, respectively. In both polls, the Huskers were penalized just three spots for their 19-7 loss to the unranked […]

Petty Officer 3rd Class Morgan Ryan from Minden, was one lucky son of a gun last week when players for both Nebraska and the Washington Huskies had lunch on Ryanâ??s ship as part of the teamsâ?? activities for the Bridgepoint Education Holiday Bowl in San Diego. Ryan was singled out by the Huskers, given a […]

As we know, Steve Pederson and Watson worked together before. Maybe they could do so again. I understand that Pittsburgh’s a very nice place to live. [UPDATE: I guess Pitt isn’t paying attention, but Texas State in San Marcos is. Watson is in the running for the head coach job there, according to Big Red […]
