A run-down of sporting stories from the weekend covering Nebraska athletics, the Big Ten and around the world.
The greatest headline ever. CAN YOU FEEL IT?
If you want to burn through your LJS or OWH free access, here are the links to their Big Ten and Big Red previews.
If we lose Saturday, it's Sam's fault.
Eric Martin talks about centaurs.
A lot of things still up in the air this week.
A lot more Nebraska football and other stories after the Jump!
Tied with Georgia and Alabama. (Yes, Rex is on the list. So is Maher!)
(**) No more saving stubs: Husker student tickets go electronic - Omaha.com
Sounds more like the University is cracking down on the secondary market. Not particularly moved on this, since I was excited to go to the games. I don't like the not being able to move between stadiums since they got rid of football blocks in 2009. How do you get to sit with your friends?
Here's hoping helmets stay on during crunch time.
Tim Marlowe opens up with some insights on Youngstown, Ohio.Ohio football sounds like something else.
Offensive line coach Barney Cotton has considered rotating centers, but I don’t think that’s the perfect situation for the "quarterback of the offensive line."
If Cotton rotates centers, I suspect the offense will suffer and come January Cotton will be asked to retire. I can't see him taking another job like Watson.
DIME: 1A) David Santos, 1B) Corey Cooper, 1C) Zaire Anderson.This is intriguing. Nebraska could go with a more traditional dime set with the true safety Cooper or they could go big with hybrid linebackers in Santos or Anderson. That could make things very interesting once Big Ten play rolls around.
Options are nice to have. What do you think?
–Pelini tapped the brakes a bit on the Tommy Armstrong hype."Tommy’s come in and done a good job," Pelini said. "Everybody’s trying to anoint him (but) nothing’s been decided as far as the number two (quarterback) position is concerned. He’s had a nice camp."
If we had a spring game, we'd be anointing him No. 1, right?
Can he play in the Spring Game so we can anoint him No. 1 next April?
I think the best part is the selflessness of the older QBs and their willingness to help despite the fact that Armstrong might be the future for Nebraska. How cool is that?
Here's to four more years for Pelini, with better days ahead.
Coach Joseph's comments are kind of eye-opening. "Surviving"? Let's hope we rise above that this fall.
A nice list of optimism. I have to disagree on losing to Sparta. We might still go 10-2, but I think loss #2 is to either Minnesota or Northwestern, just to keep us annoyed.
Why wouldn't Boehm hire Paul Johnson, the preeminent OPTION KING, if he was looking for a return to the Nebraska of old?
Southern Mississippi (0-0)
Our own Husker Mike previews the moving target that is Southern Miss.
Bill Connelly reviews Southern Miss. football. Stiff challenge?
As for how many quarterbacks will play, that is yet to be determined. Hopefully their QB uncertainty doesn't cause any fits for Nebraska this Saturday. (Doesn't it feel great to read that?)
Best wishes their way - here's hoping they bring their best to Lincoln.
Sounds like they'll have a lot of moving parts that need to be settled by Friday.
The Husker ladies had quite the weekend to open their season, sweeping their opening slate, 9-2. (3-0, 3-2, 3-0)
I would always compare UCLA to Nebraska, and you just can't compare it. I say this over and over again, but Nebraska really is like the perfect school.
Heh. Especially after Saturday, amirite?
Win #2. Nice that they could down UCLA at the Coliseum.
And win #3. Hell of a way to open the season, ladies! (And Notre Dame losing is always nice.)
Women's Soccer (2-3-0)
Freshmen Jaylyn Odermann and Katie Kraeutner led the Nebraska soccer team (1-3-0) to its first win of the 2012 season on Sunday afternoon at the Nebraska Soccer Field with a 2-0 shutout of the New Mexico Lobos. Odermann notched both her first career goal and assist on the day, while Kraeutner added her first career goal.
Way to go!
Following a 4-3 double-overtime win by the Nebraska soccer team last season on the road at then No. 25 Virginia Tech, the No. 16 ranked Hokies avenged the loss on Friday night at the Nebraska Soccer Field with a 3-2 overtime victory.
A tough loss but so it goes.
Good luck in the SEC, Mizzou. Y'all will need it.
Get well soon, Prince.
This guy is going to face an impossible feat: if he wins, it's Chris Petersen. If he loses, it's him. That sucks.
Perhaps the SEC should consider player character in addition to talent?
Well, that won't help.
If you have two QBs, you have no QB.
Hahahahahahahahahahahaha. Oh, Army. You're so cute! (TEN YEARS.)
