Today at 3:30 will be the breaking of the ground, or groundbreaking, for Nebraska football’s North Stadium expansion and the new facility.

The twitter account was kind enough to tweet out some pictures of what they plan on building.

What do you think?

Should be done by 2023.


Big News For Nebraska

Nebraska needs wins this season. More than ever. Or at least it feel like it.

If you looked at the schedule and simply chalked the game against Buffalo as a win then you’d be mistaken. They are a good football and easily could have come in to Memorial Stadium and beat Nebraska.

So when they lose their head coach at this time of year it can only help Nebraska. Though they might just hire one of his assistants and everything will go on smoothly.

Nebraska will need to get it’s wins wherever it can. So I think this is big news.

Tell me who the San Francisco 49ers are taking at No. 3, because nobody seems 100% sure, maybe not even the 49ers. Tell me, with bravado, who the New England Patriots will take at No. 15. Will the Pats stay there, trade up, or will Grumpy Lobster Boat Captain Bill Belichick trade down into the drafty depths? Who will the Tampa Bay Buccaneers pluck at No. 32? What will the Chicago Bears do at No. 83? Or, for that matter, at No. 204? Who will the Pittsburgh Steelers take at No. 254? Come on! You’ve had nearly 12 months to think about this. You must have at least an inkling.
