NEBRASKA CORNHUSKERS NEWS

Former Georgetown forward Moses Ayegba will transfer to Nebraska

While the exploits of players such as Terran Petteway, Walter Pitchford and Shavon Shields was enough to get Nebraska to the NCAA tournament for the first time since 1998, one thing the Huskers lacked in 2013-14 was interior depth. Shields, a 6-foot-6 shooting guard, was Nebraska’s leading rebounder and outside of Pitchford just one true big (Leslee Smith) averaged double-digit...

Can Nebraska’s Bo Pelini Become America’s Favorite College Football Coach?

There are times when Bo Pelini reminds me of my dad. My dad was a football coach. He helped found the Small Fry league in my tiny Upstate New York town. He coached kids between the ages of nine and 13. He taught the fundamentals. He taught trick plays. He taught you how to tackle the old fashioned way – hard and low – to make sure the runner didn’t go one more yard once you...
