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

On Twitter @TheCoachBart Follow TSS @TheStudentSect Like peering off into the distance and seeing the clouds whir by with a black sky on the horizon, sometimes, things are just easy to see coming.

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

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...

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

Nebraska is a quiet place this week. More so than usual. Sports talk radio hosts won’t even entertain the notion of talking about the upcoming Northwestern game next weekend. Nah, they’ll just keep feeding the excuse bonfire with clap-gate logs.

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...
