#19 Nebraska Cornhuskers vs #10 MSU Spartans Preview

Watching the Nebraska Cornhuskers destroy my alma mater last night was a pure joy. Wait, what? You just said you enjoyed watching the school you graduated from getting annihilated. Well, yes, because I knew it was coming. In fact the score I predicted in my Illinois v. Nebraska game preview was eerily similar to what the final score actually was. Plus after dealing with apathy for...

2013 loss to Spartans still weighs on No. 19 Neb

Video: Nebraska WR Kenny Bell Somehow Caught A Ball Between His Legs

Nebraska wide receivers keep hauling in insane catches. Earlier this season, Huskers WR Jordan Westerkamp caught a ball behind his back, which very well could be the best catch we’ve ever seen. A week later, Westerkamp had another insane catch, this time reeling in a ball with one hand despite being hounded by a defender. On Saturday night against Illinois, Huskers WR Kenny Bell...

Illinois vs. Nebraska – Game Time, TV Schedule, Line, Predictions

Flickr/Sarah Korf Illinois and Nebraska begin Big Ten conference play this Saturday night in Lincoln. Illinois is a very pedestrian 3-1 with wins against Youngstown State, Western Kentucky and Texas State. The Illini trailed in the second half in all three of those games before pulling out wins.

PHOTO: Nebraska Wearing 'Red Rising' Helmets for Illinois Game

A long time ago my momma taught me that if I don't have anything nice to say I shouldn't say anything at all. As a blogger it can be kind of hard to adhere to that on some occasions (i.e. anything involving Roger Goodell), but for the most part I do try to be civil towards the subject of my posts.So with that in mind I have nothing to say about the alternate helmet the Nebraska...

Cornhuskers, B1G hard selling us on Ameer Abdullah for Heisman

Ameer Abdullah. Is he truly a Heisman candidate, or this all just propaganda being produced by Nebraska and the Big Ten? NU, the B1G, and the BTN (the league’s public relations department in television form) have all been extremely aggressive in marketing Ameer Abdullah as a Heisman candidate to us. Hashtags, slogans, the Nebraska marching band’s special tribute to him planned...

Nebraska Cornhuskers vs Illini: brutally honest preview

This is where the issues and struggling with McNeese State really matter for the Nebraska Cornhuskers. Don’t you dare call it “adversity.” Adverse circumstances are real life problems where you have to overcome serious obstacles.
