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. Considering how many sucker punches have been dealt out over the past few weeks to the records of seemingly untouchable teams, the Big Red’s holding steady. What’s the biggest obstacle in the path [&hellip (Visited 1 times, 1 visits...

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

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

Dantonio, Pelini don’t see eye-to-eye on clapping issue

Call it “Clapgate” or “The Great Clapping Debate of 2014″ or whatever name you want, but it’s pretty clear that Michigan State head coach Mark Dantonio and Nebraska head coach Bo Pelini don’t see eye-to-eye on what went down last Saturday night in East Lansing, Mich. What we initially saw were multiple snapping issues between quarterback Tommy Armstrong, Jr. and senior...

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...

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...

PHOTO: Nebraska fanbase taking Bo Pelini cat jokes up a notch

The Bo Pelini cat jokes are not losing any steam. As we saw tonight at Memorial Stadium in Lincoln, the Kitty Pelini bit is still hilarious. Cornhuskers fans are embracing it with more momentum every week. Take a look below at this screen grab from the game broadcast tonight. You’ll see a few NU co-eds sporting cat posters as they cheer on their team.  credit: Big Ten Network...

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...

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...
