NEBRASKA RUMORS & GOSSIP

Mike Riley going hands on with Huskers QB group

Mike Riley has a reputation as a bit of a quarterback guru, so it shouldn’t be a surprise to hear that he’ll take a role in the position group during his first season as the Nebraska Cornhuskers head coach. Still, the emphasis he’ll be putting on the position is a bit surprising. You can pretty much pencil Riley in anywhere and everywhere the quarterbacks go during the upcoming...

Nebraska QB told to be ready for more passing, less running

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) Tommy Armstrong Jr. remains Nebraska's No. 1 quarterback heading into coach Mike Riley's first spring practice with the Cornhuskers.

Nebraska Cornhuskers Spring Preview 2015: Fresh start could be just what Huskers need

For the first time in eight years the Nebraska Cornhuskers will enter spring football without Bo Pelini. That means everything is fresh and new and exciting after the hire of Mike Riley as the new head coach this offseason. It’s safe to say he wasn’t the first or second or even third choice of those in the media or the fanbase, but athletic director Shawn Eichorst apparently...

Nebraska F Terran Petteway Tells Husker Team His Mom Is Battling Cancer

Terran Petteway has had somewhat of an up-and-down junior season. The Nebraska forward has been playing well –  averaging 18.8 points per game – but he’s occasionally been visibly frustrated on the floor and expressing poor body language.  There is a reason for that. The Huskers’ star player has been dealing with a lot in his personal life. His mother, Joetta, is currently...

Video: Referee Yells “Boom” As He T’s Up Nebraska Player

If you’re a fan of referees who get overly animated while doing their jobs, we’ve got a treat for you. During Tuesday’s contest between Nebraska and Minnesota, official Tom Eades, who clearly wasn’t thrilled with what he was hearing, assessed a technical foul on Cornhuskers forward Shavon Shields. Amazingly, he also yelled “Boom!” as he made the hand signal. Check it...

Jim Tressel Consulted With Tom Osborne Before Hiring Bo Pelini

Twitter/@Huskers On paper, Youngstown State’s hiring of Bo Pelini was a slam dunk, but off the field, there are some obvious concerns. Youngstown State president and former Ohio State head coach Jim Tressel did his due diligence before hiring Pelini, he consulted with Nebraska legend Tom Osborne, the man that hired Pelini in 2007.  So when Pelini emerged as a candidate for YSU’s...

Fat Guy Almost-Play of the Day Courtesy of Nebraska Lineman Alex Lewis

This would have been the Fat Guy Play of the Day had it counted. Nothing against Penn State's big man, but anytime an offensive lineman can catch a pass like Nebraska Cornhusker's Alex Lewis did and run it in for a touchdown from 15-yards away it is award worthy.Alas, it was called an illegal forward pass and called back. Tommie Armstrong Jr. better be buying him a cheeseburger or...

Faux Pelini’s Twitter reaction to Bo Pelini’s firing was classic

Yesterday, the University of Nebraska announced that it had fired its head football coach, Bo Pelini, effective immediately, after seven seasons and zero conference titles. Despite a 9-3 season this year, it was not enough to save Pelini’s job, and he will not coach whatever bowl game the Huskers end up in. As soon as it was announced, Twitter exploded with the news and waited...

5 names Nebraska Cornhuskers need to consider in replacing Bo Pelini

Bo Pelini is gone after seven years, winning nine games or more every year and winning four division titles. He’ll earn a handsome $7.65 million and his assistants will earn a combined $3.1 million as AD Shawn Eichorst relieved Pelini of his duties. It certainly set off some vociferous reactions among the Husker faithful, but no matter the feelings the reality is the Huskers are...

Bo Had To Go: Nebraska Fires Bo Pelini, Rightly Expecting Something More

Throughout his tenure as head coach at the University of Nebraska, Bo Pelini was an energetic man, as the photo above shows. He was not known to repress his emotions or speak in soft tones — this is neither good nor bad in itself, because fans and pundits both make the mistake of ascribing too much value to emotionalism or too little value to stoicism. Call this “Tom Landry Syndrome...

Should He Stay Or Should Bo Go? Assessing Bo Pelini at Nebraska After Another Blown Lead

Nebraska will not win the Big Ten this year. It won’t even win its division. Bo Pelini must endure another year of questions after his defense failed to protect another double-digit lead. Is Nebraska no longer “Nebraska,” or should the Huskers rightly expect more out of their program? That’s the question at the heart of the Bo Pelini debate, and the Student Section editors...

That’s a winning percentage of .727. I’m sorry, but when you are talking about a program that historically has a winning percentage of .702, .727 is not going to cut it. A change is needed.
