3 Keys to Victory: Nebraska vs. Purdue

When the Nebraska Cornhuskers traveled to Purdue last season for the first meeting since 1958…let’s just say it was all Nebraska.  On the way to a 44-7 victory Nebraska could do very little wrong against a wildly outmatched Purdue squad.  Despite quarterback Tommy Armstrong’s 3 interceptions Purdue never threatened and scored their only points at [&hellip (Visited 1 times...

Video: Joe Tessitore Explains Why The SEC Is The Best Conference In College Football

Earlier this week, Nebraska head coach Bo Pelini made it clear that he thinks that ESPN (partially because of the SEC Network) is a bit biased when it comes to its coverage of the Southeastern Conference. Wednesday, network broadcaster Joe Tessitore joined Paul Finebaum on his radio show to explain exactly why he believes that the league hasn’t been “propped up” by the network...

Bo Pelini was right about ESPN And the SEC, but hopefully it won’t matter

So you get that lawn cut just a little quicker than you otherwise would. When the College Football Playoff was created and eventually saw its broadcast rights bid for and won by ESPN, you...

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...

Husker Football’s Worst Enemy: Itself; Jason Peter Agrees

The Nebraska Cornhuskers are sitting at No. 16 in the polls with only one loss and Husker football fans are justifiably feeling pretty good.

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 Cornhuskers QB Tommy Armstrong Jr: better than you think

“Tommy’s growing. 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...

Bye Week In Nebraska: The Calm Before The Inevitable Storm

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...

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. That’s “adversity.” What happened to NU was “sucking at football for three and a half quarters.” or to be more politically correct “nothing...
