A preview from our own Husker Mike. How will they beat us this fall? Click to find out!
Well, it's refreshing to see the team is really keen on achieving one thing: a conference championship. That's how it should be, in my opinion.
More Nebraska football and other stories after the jump!
If Nebraska is wearing all red...that means Wisconsin is wearing all whites right? What's Wisconsin's record in the surrender white?
I don't understand why we needed to go from this to those abominations. I mean, seriously, there had to be something better than Nerdman's rejected costume.
I think this is further proof that adidas used the same focus group as the Big Ten.
(OWH article) It would be nice to have some backups for Rex for the transition to next season.
(OWH article) I'd like to see Nebraska earn the fear again.
>> Bo hasn’t talked to brother Carl Pelini — Florida Atlantic’s new head coach — in "a couple months." "I haven’t talked to him this summer," Bo Pelini said. "He’s going to do it his way. I got enough to worry about."
I think that says a lot.
Your thoughts? Agree? Disagree? Think Pelini is just making excuses?
No more rants about checks for a while. And stop making Bo Pelini accounts, people.
A lack of attention from the outside should help Nebraska exceed expectations, don't you think?
Hey, remember what I said about accountability? Kind of concerning.
//throwing of things
I distinctly remember being very angry at Pelini for fielding this team, especially once they started losing their heads in the second half. Thankfully, a cooler head prevailed.
They forget that Nobel Laureate Dr. George W. Beadle, co-"discoverer" (alongside Tatum) of the one gene-one enzyme hypothesis which laid the foundation for modern biochemistry and genetics, was a Nebraska graduate (and born in Wahoo, NE). (The Beadle Center on campus was named in his honor.)
Congratulations to Mary Weatherholt and IU's Alicia Kauss!
Big Ten Conference
Sounds like the Big Ten believes that having strong non-conference schedules will be important heading into the playoff era. Works for me.
Frankly, this is kind of impressive. (Condolences to Iowa)
Penn State QB Rob Bolden Granted Release From Scholarship, Visits LSU - SBNation.com
I'm not sure what the author means when he suggests LSU won't need to score many points to be competitive. I'm pretty sure they lost to Alabama because they couldn't score many points. And frankly, this isn't very surprising. Bolden wanted to leave last season.
Olympics (Cont'd from above)
We'll talk about results so far for Nebraska participants tomorrow.
I kind of feel like there had to be a way to set it up so that the public could view the cauldron too. The IOC should look into this and mandate that for the future Olympics. The cauldron represents the Olympic spirit, not corporate greed.
Well, the article is right that the BCS isn't dead. But it has already met its replacement. Considering the whole post-season championship thing in college football is a fanciful unicorn in the first place, I don't really see how the next two years should be so much more contentious towards the BCS. I think the reason we have change is because we met our limit on allowable pandering to the Southeast.
Irony! But really, this is a silly one.
Someone has a future in the Secret Service.
Well...that's an unsatisfactory ending.
He has a rough start to the NFL as far as reputation. Here's hoping he can find a way to play that doesn't upset the NFL and can stay away from the wrong people off the field.
Good luck to him. Hope he has a better year both on and off the field.
Perhaps Pelini's ban is for the best.
Announcement at LJS (I think this qualifies as an advertisement so it shouldn't use one of your links)
This will complicate things for me. As I don't live in Nebraska, I depend mostly on the good graces of the LJS and OWH for their football coverage. With both sites now having limited access to non-subscribers (though I've never hit the wall on the OWH), I will have to change my approach. It should be noted that I don't disagree with their right to charge - it is their content being offered up for consumption and they are still a media organization involved in the sale of information. I am not protesting. But it will require me to change my approach to the Reads.
For starters, you can expect no more links to their editorials. (What's really annoying is that the LJS doesn't appear to be marking their articles to differentiate between national media and local content.) I'll also be concentrating on national media and fan-generated content (not Bleacher Report) that is offered by ad-supported or free distribution as I don't think it would be appropriate for me to link to articles that cannot be read by the average visitor.
