The University of Nebraska-Lincoln has earned an $11.3 million grant from the National Institutes of Health to establish a research center focused on investigating cellular level miscommunications that contribute to complex diseases such as cancer, diabetes and chronic liver disease.
We discussed this internally amongst the CN staff... well, two of us did. We have a diverse group, comedians, IT people, a coach, couple scientists, and a dead Russian general.
I asked for a translation and ranchbabe delivered this:
As an IT guy, this is the same as figuring out which line of code is missing the appropriate piece of punctuation that closes the command and separates it from the next one.
Makes sense to me. You?
Paul, who came to the university on July 1, 2001, wrote in an Aug. 29 note to faculty and staff that he would end his tenure as one of the university's top administrators immediately.
Nebraska junior middle blocker Briana Holman was named the espnW National Player of the Week on Wednesday.
Fresno State has had a rough go since Derek Carr moved on to the NFL. But with Chason Virgil atop a group that will get even deeper next season, the Bulldogs finally may be on the right track at quarterback.
Nebraska can’t lose that many heartbreaking games again, right?
In 3 short days I will be beer-in-hand in front of a television, grinning ear-to-ear. I’ve been waiting for this moment since beating UCLA 37-29 last December. But I’ve also been waiting for this moment since February 5th when I lived the worst day of my life.
I remember seeing this young woman’s tweets about losing her dog. Please read her story.
The Baltimore Ravens didn’t exist at that point, but they may be going the all-rookie route this season. First-round pick Ronnie Stanley is definitely starting at left tackle and fourth-round pick Alex Lewis may be next to him at guard.
Hey, look at that! Alex Lewis might be starting!
That would be some pretty cool redemption right there!
With the Brandon Tate era in the rearview, the Bengals will expect Erickson and Burkhead two to step up and perform.
But before I log off at the LJS, I wanted to share some memorable moments. They’re not in any order, and I’ll begin writing them really not knowing how many I’ll share, so there’s no specific number in mind, either.
Finally, it is Morgan Burke’s last day.
Perhaps things will change for Purdue?
Mike Weber is officially Ohio State’s starting running back, too.
Who will exceed expectations? What about disappoint?
Just let us have this.
He didn't address how he thinks an NCAA Football series could return in the form that fans remember, with real-life rosters in which players are either fairly compensated or give permission for their use.
It won’t return in that form unless the current structure of NCAA football blows up. I’m not 100% sure why they can’t release a game that just randomizes numbers and names and gives us updated physics, our team’s current offense, and let’s it go at that.
Would not enough people buy it? I’m assuming that’s the thinking.

Gamers are really really really pissed off about No Man’s Sky. Really, really pissed off.
GAME DAY THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW
As the season opener versus Fresno State nears, Cornhusker football fans are reminded to arrive early and plan ahead.
The University Bookstore is upgrading its satellite location for Husker football game days, transitioning from a tent near Memorial Stadium to the old Nebraska Bookstore building.
The Cornhusker Marching Band’s Route Has Changed
Then There’s This: Glass Animals
This is the video for a song called “Life Ifself” from a band called Glass Animals. The song is the first from the new album “How To Be A Human Being”.
That tall, lanky, blonde (kinda creepy) dude in the video is Pat Janssen, from our very own podcast Big Red Cobcast!
“How to Be a Human Being” is concept album in which each song is represented by a different character, and Janssen’s character was the face of “Life Itself”, which is a pretty funky cool song.
Apparently Pat’s character is named “Chuck Rogers”, and Chuck Rogers designed a web site where you can find cool things. Be sure to examine the great inventions!
