The Nebraska Cornhuskers will be without their three superstars on defense from last year: Alfonzo Dennard, Jared Crick and Lavonte David. All are in the NFL now. Even with the trio, the team’s defense wasn’t all that spectacular in 2011. Linebacker Will Compton may not have as much NFL potential as Baker Steinkuhler, or some of the other blackshirts, but he’s the heart and...

Nebraska is getting ready for year two in the Big Ten, and hoping to get over the four-loss hump. With a strong running game and special teams, as usual, the question will be whether or not they can win with their quarterback and up-and-down defense. With one of the more underrated schedules in September (Southern Mississippi, @ UCLA,...
In case you missed it yesterday the Capital One Bowl went something like this: "Damn." Nebraska, probably the fourth best team in the Big Ten, didn't get pounded by (probably) the fourth best team in the SEC. That was the good news. The bad news was that the Huskers decided to chain smoke exploding cigars in the second half, winding up with more penalty yards than...
