Nebraska-Rhode Island Preview

Nebraska coach Tim Miles isn't overly concerned about the Cornhuskers' slow starts. Their struggles on the glass seem much more worrisome heading into their first road test. The No. 21 Huskers may have a difficult time relieving some of that anxiety against a team that has been one of the nation's best on the boards early in the season. Nebraska looks to avoid its fifth...

Bo Pelini could be in trouble at Nebraska

Nebraska head coach Bo Pelini has always had to deal with detractors during his tenure. He has the Cornhuskers sitting at 8-2 with Minnesota on deck this weekend. But after an embarrassing loss against Wisconsin, the complaints about the state of the program have started to get louder. Losing to the Badgers was bad, but the way they lost is what has Big Red Nation fired up. Wisconsin...

A Number Of Nebraska Defensive Players Chose Not To Wear Their Blackshirts At Practice Today

For roughly half of Nebraska’s defense, Saturday’s performance against Wisconsin resulted in a temporary handing in of the Blackshirts.  The Huskers’ defense, which allowed 59 points and a record-setting 408 rushing yards by Melvin Gordon in a loss to Wisconsin, was given their Blackshirts by Bo Pelini on Oct. 21.  At today’s practice, seven defensive players opted to not...

Huskers Season 125: Episode 10 Recap: Well, At Least The Cheese Curds Were Good

On Saturday, I saw a woman’s ear explode on television and it was only the second-most disgusting thing I saw that day. (My advice? Do not watch that video.) Number one was the Nebraska Cornhuskers. (My advice? Do not re-watch that game.) Forgive me if this post ends up being a rambling, meandering river of disconnected [&hellip No visits yet The post Huskers Season 125...

Bo Pelini’s big game inability keeps Nebraska Cornhuskers from being elite

What’s with Wisconsin and Bo Pelini? I mean, the Badgers have taken out some serious aggression on Pelini’s Huskers everywhere but Lincoln, Neb. since joining the Big Ten. It’s Wisconsin 174, Nebraska 72. Think about that for a second. In three games played outside of Lincoln, Neb. the Huskers have barely topped the 2012 Big Ten championship point total for Wisconsin. But,...

Faux Pelini put up a better fight than Nebraska did vs Wisconsin

He is one of the superstars of College Football Twitter, the internet coach whose buyout would be the largest if a Twitter account’s popularity could be monetized. Fake Bo Pelini — @FauxPelini is the handle — creates ripples of laughs across the web, especially on college football Saturdays. When something spectacular (for better or worse) happens to Nebraska on the gridiron...

3 Keys To Victory: Nebraska vs Wisconsin

As hard as it is to do; forget 2012.  Everyone has to act like it never happened even though we all very much remember it happened.

We’ll get the answers to the key questions facing Nebraska, including what’s up with the verbal games played by Pelini about...

Nebraska Path to College Football Playoff Still Exists, But Barely

Although certainly buried underneath the bigger story lines near the top of the third College Football Playoff committee rankings this week, Nebraska’s drop three spots during a bye week is telling. Apparently the committee continues to be willing to punish teams severely for losses that look worse as the season goes along, and the Big Ten also fails to get the benefit of the doubt...

Bo Pelini’s Calendar for the Nebraska Cornhuskers vs Wisconsin Badgers Game

Bo Pelini has had a pretty full couple of weeks.  What with somehow dropping the soap in the prison-shower-scene that is the College Football Playoff committee, trying to get the blood on his contract with the devil to dry in time for Ameer Abdullah to make a miraculous return to health, and attempting to win yet [&hellip (Visited 5 times, 5 visits today) The post Bo Pelini’s...

Nebraska DT Vincent Valentine Is Mad That The Huskers Fell In The College Football Playoff Rankings Despite Having A Bye

In the latest College Football Playoff rankings, the Nebraska Cornhuskers fell three spots. Bo Pelini’s squad was the No. 13 team in America last week, but this week, the squad is ranked 16th. Falling that far usually only happens after a team loses, but last weekend, the Cornhuskers had a bye. Unsurprisingly, this upset some people, like Nebraska defensive tackle Vincent Valentine...

Kenny Bell Responds To Nebraska’s College Football Playoff Ranking, Says Team Needs To “Just Win”

One team that didn’t receive much love in this week’s College Football Playoff rankings is Nebraska. Despite being 8-1 and the No. 11 squad in America in both the AP and Coaches’ polls, the Huskers were only ranked 16th in the most recent rankings by the playoff committee. While some Huskers fans may have been upset, WR Kenny Bell has a simple solution on how the team can...

Video: Nebraska RB Ameer Abdullah Is Practicing Today, Wearing Protective Brace On Knee

On this morning’s Big Ten coaches’ conference call, Bo Pelini said he expects Ameer Abdullah to play against Wisconsin, but he’s “not a doctor,” so the Nebraska coach isn’t sure if his star running back will be good to go.  If today’s practice is any indication of Abdullah’s status for Saturday, it appears the Huskers’ senior tailback will at least attempt to give...

Big Ten Basketball Preview: #3 Nebraska Cornhuskers

I thought this was going to feel weird and yep, it sure does.  Nebraska, third in the Big 10.  Wow, crazy.  At the same time it makes sense though.  The Huskers finished fourth in the conference last season and return nearly everybody from that team.  They were 11-7 in conference play and beat Ohio State and Michigan State at home.  I mean this is serious, people.  Tim Miles...

Report: Ameer Abdullah sustained mild MCL sprain

Ameer Abdullah exited today’s game against Purdue with an apparent injury to his left knee. The Nebraska running back got twisted up at the bottom of a pile on a 4th-and-goal play late in the first quarter.  At halftime, Huskers’ coach Bo Pelini said Abdullah would not return to the contest against the Boilermakers, but added he did not think the injury was “that serious...

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.

We are exactly halfway through the regular season in college football and the Nebraska Cornhuskers are sitting at 5-1 — just about...

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.

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...
