Nebraska athletics opens up the 2013 campaign for collegiate glory this coming weekend. I'll be providing a weekly calendar of events as well as a box score of the prior week's results. For the non-revenue sports, I'll also try and provide a brief summary of the event with a link to the official report from the school.
If you attend any of Nebraska's sporting events, we encourage you to share here at Corn Nation! We're always looking for passionate fans who want to help cover under-reported sports in more depth. Even if you're not interested in covering the full season, we encourage you to provide your prospective (and pictures!!!) through use of the FanPost/FanShot tool. We'll promote interesting FanPosts through the front page and the daily Cornflakes, so share your passion today!
We're in desperate need of a volleyball reporter as well as a women's basketball reporter. Please contact Jon at the CN email for more information if you're interested!
On with the calendar!
