#19 Nebraska Cornhuskers vs #10 MSU Spartans Preview

Watching the Nebraska Cornhuskers destroy my alma mater last night was a pure joy. Wait, what? You just said you enjoyed watching the school you graduated from getting annihilated.

Plus after dealing with apathy for...

Heisman Dark Horses at the end of September

On Twitter @TheCoachBart Heisman dark horse columns are hard. Not hard in the sense of roofing a house in 95-degree weather for 12 hours a day, but hard in the sense that they don’t really exist anymore. Really, they don’t. The Heisman is almost certainly going to a player on a top 10-ish team or one knocking on the door of playing for a college football championship. It’s...

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.

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.
