A run-down of sporting stories from the weekend covering Nebraska athletics, the Big Ten and around the world.
I never knew that the Selleck Quadrangle played such an integral job in Nebraska Cornhusker history.
The Omaha World-Herald is hosting an internet vote for the best parts of Nebraska history. Give it a look. I look forward to BHGP robo-voting Callahan's throat slash to winner.
Should be a fun season. What do you think?
Congrats to Mr. Stanton!
I'm not sure this article is genuine - with all the success the dual-threat QB has had lately, I can't see how any of them really gets a lot of criticism. Certainly nothing like Taylor Martinez gets.
More Nebraska football and other stories after the jump!
"I still like to dance," he replied. "But it's more work dancing at the house than it is somewhere else. It's nothing major. I don't get out and shake it up much anymore. When you become the old guy of the bunch, you just sort of hang out near the wall."
I think this is great if only because we find out that Nick Saban enjoys good dance choreography.
I remember this game. We almost wish the snow had fallen just a little bit harder.
Building depth? Or is this kid the real deal?
Not big fans of Martinez. I hope Taylor makes them eat crow.
5. Spencer Long, G, Nebraska, junior: Long is a former walk-on who didn't play in 2010 but started every game in 2011. And he made quite an impression, helping pave the way for the Huskers' powerful running attack. The 6-foot-4, 305-pounder is expected to be a leader on the Nebraska line this year.
Don't remember if I reported this but Burkhead made the Walker Camp PoY watchlist as well.
What do you think of our chances in Columbus? This is the last time we visit until 2017.
Crick gave credit to Nebraska's defensive coaches for broadening his knowledge about the game.
"It makes it easy to be versatile and to work into different schemes," Crick said. "Going down to the Texans' (organized team activities in May and June), it was a smooth transition."
Not terribly worried about the defense this season, really.
Former Huskers Nancy Metcalf (11 points on 10 kills and a block) and Kayla Banwarth (a team-high six digs) helped the United States rally from a two-set deficit to defeat Brazil 28-30, 18-25, 25-22, 25-21, 15-11 on Friday night in the championship match of the Pan American Cup in Juarez, Mexico. The U.S. team, which included no players expected to be on the Olympic team, won its first gold medal at this tournament since 2003 and prevented Brazil from a record-tying fourth gold.
Nebraska ladies helping Team USA all over. (Also a brief blurb about several Nebraska wrestling recruits.)
Sounds like a good pick up for Coach Yori and the lady Huskers.
Josh Roeder (Porter Ridge High School, Matthews, NC) brought in as a pitcher and may earn the right to be a closer.
Another way to follow the Olympics this year. How far the Olympics have come from naked guys running around and throwing things.
Well, when the two other sluggers in your division are sidelined for stupidity, it's kind of hard NOT to win the division. (Come on Tim Beckman, you're our only hope.)
You want Nebraska to give any money maybe you should induct one of the greatest college football players ever?
If you're around Lincoln and you're eligible, please consider helping out.
Oh, look, Arkansas State plays Auburn in 2013. Wouldn't that be delicious?
What if he had been a fry cook at Denny's?
