Jones, Batch, Crick and Banks Selected as Big 12 Football Players of the Week - Big 12 Conference
Landry Jones (Oklahoma), Baron Batch (Texas Tech), Jared Crick (Nebraska) and Brandon Banks (Kansas State) have been named Big 12 Conference Football Players of the Week.
The Nebraska soccer team begins the 2009 postseason when it travels to the Lone Star State for the Big 12 Championship this week in San Antonio. Carrying the school's best record since 2005 (11- 4-4, 5-3-2), the Huskers have earned the No. 4 seed in the conference tournament and will face No. 5 Oklahoma State (12-7-0, 5-5-0) this Wednesday at 11:30 a.m., at Blossom Soccer Stadium. Fans can catch all the action with free live video and stats on Big12Sports.com and a live blog on Huskers.com.
It's my schill post for Nebraska soccer. They're building toward a NCAA berth, so it's important they do well in the Big 12 tournament. Plus, the better the non-revenue sports are, the better off the athletic department is. Plus, I like soccer, so there - CB
Stoops, Pelini Reflect on NU-OU series
Stoops said the rivalry has "no question" changed now that the teams only play two out of every four years, but the OU staff – which includes former Sooners Cale Gundy, Josh Heupel, Chris Wilson and Jackie Shipp - "puts it in front of the players" during game week. In the past, Oklahoma has shown a video of classic moments from the series.
"We've got to get better production," Pelini said. "We need to run the football better. We've got to block better. We've got to run more consistently. We have to not miss holes. We just need to execute better in that phase of our game."
Emphasis on the "block better" portion of that statement. Unfortunately, I'm not 100% sure that's possible with this group of linemen. The tackles.... arrgh!
