Nebraska sets first three games for PPV telecasts
Sept. 5: Florida Atlantic, 6 p.m.
Sept. 12: Arkansas State, 1 p.m.
Sept. 26: Louisiana-Lafayette, 6 p.m.
2 night games? That should make for some great tailgating!
"We're not training body builders, power lifters, Olympic lifters. We're not training track athletes," Dobson said, sort of downplaying the complexities of his job. "You look at the game of football, what are the demands? We try to mimic those in how we train."
He has done a fabulous job thus far.
Heisman Pundit Ranks Ndamukong Suh Third Best DT Nationally
Which leads me to ask - should we be helping Suh with the coverage? Should we?
This pains me to write this, but the NFL actually does something better than college football. I've always been a college apologist, for obvious reasons. The color and pageantry of Saturday football far outstrips the professional counterpart. And the style of play, in my opinion, is just better with college football. But I will admit that the NFL does one thing right. They have separated the sacks from rushing statistics, providing a truer picture of how a team is running the ball or stopping the run.
Husker recruit upbeat about academic situation
If Martin make the grades, then I think that NU will have 100% qualified for play this fall. Does this mean Mike will be excited about the recruits now?
Husker student-athletes produced another stellar year at the University of Nebraska, continuing NU’s tradition of academic success. Nebraska increased its nation-leading total of CoSIDA Academic All-Americans across all sports to 269 with six honorees in 2008-09, while also setting a conference record with an astounding 172 academic All-Big 12 selections during the year. Grand Island, Neb., natives Todd Peterson and Tyler Wortman added to Nebraska football’s prestigious academic tradition. Peterson and Wortman both earned second-team CoSIDA Academic All-America honors for Coach Bo Pelini’s Husker football team, giving Nebraska 98 all-time academic All-Americans in football. To put that number in perspective, Texas ranks second in football academic All-Americans among Big 12 Conference schools with 30, while Oklahoma is the only other Big 12 school with more than 20
Enthusiasm for NU goes beyond borders
Nice story about how large Husker Nation really is.
Also an "Additional Stay Benefit," of $800,000 will be paid following Jan. 1, 2011. Factoring in the $700,000 bonus already in place, as well as the automatic $200,000 annual private-funds bump also built into the contract, Stoops stands to make $4.875 million in 2011. And that’s before performance-based bonuses also included in the deal. Should the Sooners compete for the Big 12 championship and a BCS bowl that season, as is typical under the coach, Stoops would clear the $5 million mark.
Don't look for Stoops to be leaving OU for a while.
