The National Association of Collegiate Gymnastics Coaches/Women (NACGC/W) announced team and individual Scholastic All-America award winners for the 2011-12 season on Tuesday.
QB Dennis Claridge threw for 1,733 yards and 8 TDs over THREE SEASONS. And he was the school record holder in 1963. (Taylor Martinez would've fit in just fine back then, don't you think?)

More Nebraska sporting news and other stories after the Jump! (Sorry, I forgot this last night. - SCS)
In case you missed it yesterday evening, Nebrasketball released their non-conference slate for this fall. To quote dpm917 "For a program with a first year head coach and little returning experience, it's ambitious." Let's hope it's not too ambitious.

What do you think? Should Nebraska go for the "Always go on fourth" approach? Or is Maher's leg good enough of a weapon?
BOOM. 318 sold-out games at Memorial and counting.
