Before we get started, in light of recent events, I suspect many of you are losing faith in #teamsunshine. Soooo here's a musical number to get your day started!
I'm not worried!
The Battle for the NU!
With Nebraska dramatic win over Northwestern at the Devaney this weekend, Nebraska has improved it's lead over Northwestern to 5-2*.
|Nebraska||Northwestern||To Be Decided|
|Volleyball||Cross Country (M&W)||Tennis (M&W)|
|Women' Soccer||Women's Swimming|
(*I'm only counting athletic sports which both schools participate in.)
To win the rights to NU for the 2013-2014 season, Nebraska will need to win 3 of the remaining events.
Go Nebraska! Beat the Wildcats! More!

Kind of neat. Lue will be inducted into the Nebraska Basketball Hall of Fame in two weeks.
Tyronn Lue recalled Monday his 1996 visit to the office of Nebraska football Coach Tom Osborne, who had seen film of Lue as both a high school quarterback and a major college freshman basketball star. That, in turn, allowed a national championship coach to reach an immediate conclusion. "Coach Osborne told me he knew how much I loved basketball, but he also thought I had the skills needed to become a really good corner, too," Lue said. "I thought about it. I really did. But I kept coming back to having to play in the rain or the snow, and that was probably the biggest reason why I chose basketball over football in the first place."
Nebraska, 64, Northwestern, 49, Final Score - Sippin' On Purple
Saturday's win may lead to Northwestern's basketball coach getting fired, so there's that. Three more wins and the NU is OURS.

The Nebraska Recruiting Big Board (1/28/2013) - Corn Nation
We're going to get EVERYONE on the board. Bank it!
And if the conversation seems one-sided, it's because Pelini and his staff – or any coaching staff, per NCAA rules – cannot comment on a recruit until after national signing day on Feb. 6; typically, on the day prospects begin sending in their letters of intent, a coach will begin breaking down players by name.
See? Everything's fine!

Best Conference Ever
B1G ADs weigh number of league games - Big Ten Blog - ESPN
I'm pretty sure they should just finalize expansion first. Pretty soon, the Big Ten will have a large enough voting block to make the regular season as long as they need it to be.
I think we stop at 42.
Urschel was dressed in jeans and a T-shirt, not exactly professor attire, and was effortlessly teaching students the nuances of geometry while many tried to follow along.
We don't all wear tweed jackets and chew on pipes while speaking in philosophical tidbits.

Based on that information, the conference identified teams that would be left, including reputable football schools Florida State, Clemson and Louisville.
Go where they aren't is actually a pretty sound offensive strategy. (Beebe would've picked up Montana by now, probably.)

This just seems like a bad idea. But I guess you can track performance using this? Interesting data point. "Jimmy, you had 50 people retweet this tweet about you missing a layup. BENCH." (UPDATE AS I WAS PREPARING THIS: The NCAA denied their request, anyway. So no harm done!)

Well, I guess the C-USA and Sun Belt are still open to thievery. Or lower divisions. And hell, Idaho is still out there, just waiting for a phone call.
Coaches should take note. If they want their beat reporters to do more research, they should offer them cash prizes. Looking at you, Nick Saban.

Where does Rex Burkhead rank in your All Time Top 10 Huskers? - Corn Nation
Viking Husker asks a very interesting question. This isn't asking whether Burkhead is one of the greatest RBs, so I don't think championship rings matter.
The smoked gouda in this is what really makes this dish. - Bubbasan
Not sure if this is tailgate worthy*. I guess it depends on how crazy you want your tailgate to get. - Bubbasan

This is as good as a bone in skin-on breast in the smoker without the hassle of the bones when you eat it. Serve whole or slice for sandwiches.- Bubbasan
I like to make these for office pot-lucks, etc. - Bubbasan
This is always a hit on football Saturdays, but has many other uses than as a dip. It's excellent on tacos, chicken wings, burgers, you name it. - Bubbasan

The bierock, also known as a runza in some parts of the country, where small, local mom and pop shops sell their own variation of these sandwiches like people peddle hot boiled peanuts in the South.
