Saturday on the college football couch: Slacker or scout?

It was way too nice of a late-October Saturday to stay indoors, but there were three Big Ten football games and four future Iowa opponents to watch at 11 a.m.At least I opened a window.11:02 — Illinois is wearing gray uniforms to pay tribute to Red Grange, the Galloping Ghost. The uniform looks as drab as the Illinois program.11:12 — We have had already replay-reviews in the...

Raiders draft prospects: Defensive end Randy Gregory

Name: Randy Gregory, DE, Nebraska Height: 6’5” Weight: 254lbs Analysis: Ultra productive rusher in a conference, known for large, run blocking offensive lines. Gregory is vastly different than the previously profiled Shawn Oakman. Oakman is a potential stud rusher; Gregory is ready to produce right now. Could he improve? Yes, yet, if he walked into O.co now, he’d be the best...

What Should the Chicago Bears Do With Their Top 10 Draft Pick?

Too soon?  Probably but the fact of the matter is the Chicago Bears aren’t beating teams they should and that usually translates to a losing season.  Their offense can’t score despite putting up loads of yardage.  Their defense can’t get off the field or protect the end zone.  It’s a mess all around that is entirely of their own making.  Maybe a trip into the top 10...

Nebraska's Randy Gregory keeps opponents guessing

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) Nebraska's defensive coaches have kept opponents guessing when it comes to how they use Randy Gregory. The 6-foot-6, 245-pound Gregory has been a down lineman at left and right end, he's blitzed as a linebacker, he's lined up as a stand-up rush end on the left side, he's dropped into pass coverage. And he just might do something new Saturday night...

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...

Former powers Miami, No. 24 Nebraska set to play

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) Miami will play No. 24 Nebraska on Saturday night for the first time since the programs were finishing their runs of dominance, and the history isn't lost on today's players. But to them, the game at Memorial Stadium is more about the future of two teams that haven't won a title of any kind the past decade. ''It's a big thing when it comes...

Nebraska vs. Miami (FL) – Game Time, TV Schedule, Line, Preview, Predictions

Kaaya, a true freshman, will start vs. the Huskers. There was a time when this contest would have been, by far, the biggest game on a college football Saturday’s slate of contests. Four of the last five meetings between Nebraska and Miami have produced the national champion – an incredible statistic. Neither of the two programs are at the level they were when they last met in...

Another Bad Week for the Big 10? Week 3 Analysis and Picks

What an embarrassing weekend for the Big 10 last week. Michigan State fell apart late, Ohio State lost, Michigan got annihilated, Illinois used a 4th quarter rally to get past powerhouse, Western Kentucky, Iowa just hung on to beat a MAC team and both Northwestern and Purdue lost to one. Let’s forget about it and move on. I think the Big 10 bounces back this week. Let’s dig in...

Fresno State faces Nebraska in home opener

Nine months after celebrating a Mountain West championship in their final home game of 2013, Fresno State returns to Bulldog Stadium with little to feel good about. The post-Derek Carr era has gotten off to a rough start with lopsided road losses to powerhouse Southern California and fellow Pac-12 team Utah. Things don't figure to get much easier in the home opener Saturday night...

Nebraska WRs Kenny Bell, Jamal Turner Both Appear To Be Injured, Out For Second Half Of Game

Nebraska is currently having some difficulty putting away its Week 2 opponent, McNeese State. The Huskers lead the FCS team, 21-14, midway through the contest’s third quarter.  The score of the game isn’t the only problem for Bo Pelini’s team, though. Two of quarterback Tommy Armstrong’s favorite targets–senior wideouts Kenny Bell and Jamal Turner–are both in street...

Is 2014 the season that Nebraska football fans have been waiting for?

498 total rushing yards. 784 total yards of offense. No turnovers. Star running back Ameer Abdullah with a career high 232 rushing yards on 21 carries. Two wide receivers combined for 241 yards receiving on 11 receptions. Wide receiver Jordan Westerkamp with what could quite possibly be the catch of the year already. Defense only allowing 7 points and 200 total yards.  And doing...

Nebraska player's photo with little Husker fan would make anyone smile

We all need a good smile or laugh sometimes. Today, let Nebraska defensive end Jack Gangwish provide that for you. Last season, someone caught a special moment between Gangwish and a young Huskers fan. The player was standing behind glass, in full uniform, when the young fan approached and wanted a fist-bump through the window. Gangwish saw himself in the young boy, a kid growing...

Nebraska vs. McNeese State – Game Time, TV Schedule, Line, Preview, Predictions

Could week two be reminiscent of week one for the Nebraska Cornhuskers? After throttling Florida Atlantic, 55-7, during their season opener, Bo Pelini and the rest of the Huskers take on another opponent that isn’t exactly a national powerhouse in FCS squad McNeese State. This is the first game of the year for the Cowboys, who went 10-3 during 2013. While the Cowboys are a fine...
