Look: Nebraska Football’s Back in Black(Shirts)

Maybe Bo Pelini’s Nebraska Cornhuskers finally earned them. Maybe a report got back to him that a growing segment of the Nebraska football fan population actually started wondering where they went. Maybe he wanted to prevent questions by the media about when they were going to be busted out. Maybe it’s all the above. Regardless, the [&hellip No visits yet The post Look:...

Bo Pelini Has Finally Handed Out The Blackshirts To His Nebraska Defense

Seven games into its season, the Nebraska defense can now call itself “The Blackshirts,” the nickname given to the Huskers’ first-team unit and other key players beginning in the 1960s.  At today’s practice, Bo Pelini handed out the black practice jerseys to his defense, which allowed only 17 points to Northwestern following a seven-point second-half performance against...

Bo Pelini says the ESPN-SEC relationship is not good for college football

Before we get started, that’s the greatest sports picture of the year, right? College football is a universe filled with conflicts of interests and complex relationships.  Athletes and institutions, sponsors and scholarships, television networks and conferences. There’s a “you scratch my back, I’ll scratch yours” nature about the sport that always lies somewhere beneath...

Bo Pelini doesn’t agree with ESPN’s relationship with the SEC

Nebraska head coach Bo Pelini has had his problems in the past with the Southern Eastern Conference. Before the start of the season, Pelini had a few things to say about Ole Miss recruiting practices. Now Pelini has another problem but it is with the conference as a whole along with the carrier of their network. Pelini says that he doesn’t agree with ESPN’s relationship with...

Records mean little to Abdullah if Neb doesn't win

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) Ameer Abdullah says this is no time for him to celebrate his personal achievements, not with six weeks left in the regular season. So don't bother asking him what he thinks about being the first Nebraska player to post three 1,000-yard rushing seasons, or about becoming the school's No. 2 all-time leading rusher, or about scoring a career-high four touchdowns...

Nebraska Cornhuskers remind rest of B1G why they’re still contenders in 2014

Remember when Nebraska was a Top 15 team? It seems like ages ago that the Huskers were the class of the Big Ten West and a potential College Football Playoff contender. Everything was going fine, then it all came crashing down in the form of a 27-22 loss at Michigan State three weeks ago. Yet, following the bye week the question was how Nebraska would respond to the loss. Staring...

Nebraska returner Pierson-El stars on offense too

Nebraska's De'Mornay Pierson-El quickly established his reputation as one of the nation's top punt returners. This freshman can do more than special teams. Knowing that Pierson-El has returned two punts for touchdowns, Northwestern mostly kicked away from him Saturday. That didn't stop him from hurting the Wildcats in other ways in the Cornhuskers' 38-17 road...

Nebraska Cornhuskers QB Tommy Armstrong Jr: better than you think

He’s getting better,” said Nebraska Coach Bo Pelini of his starting quarterback. “He’s not the finished product yet, but I don’t know a quarterback who is after playing a year and a half.” Tommy Armstrong Jr isn’t going to be all league this year, but he did make three huge throws on third down for the Huskers that were critical for sustaining...

Kenny Bell: greatest Nebraska Cornhuskers WR ALL TIME. PERIOD

Kenny Bell is the greatest NU wideout of all time. Seriously. Nebraska Cornhuskers football is a very proud program that has accomplished a lot of things. However, they really haven’t had a whole lot of standout receivers. Kenny Bell had 5 receptions for 89 yards tonight at Northwestern through three quarters. He finished with those numbers as the Huskers blew Northwestern out...

Bo Pelini Says Michigan State Defenders Were Clapping, Screwing Up Nebraska’s Snap Count

Nebraska had some issues snapping the ball during its loss against Michigan State Saturday night. On multiple occasions, quarterback Tommy Armstrong and center Mark Pelini didn’t appear to be on the same page, leading to a few false start penalties.  This wasn’t really the Huskers fault, though, so says Bo Pelini on today’s Big Ten coaches conference call.  Pelini attributed...

Nebraska hoping for another shot at Michigan St.

With a bye this week, Nebraska will have some extra time to ponder what could have been and what could be. A fourth-quarter rally that came up short in a 27-22 loss at No. 8 Michigan State on Saturday night left coach Bo Pelini rejecting the notion of a moral victory and his players hankering for another crack at the Spartans in the Big Ten championship game Dec. 6.
