Impressive for Jojo Domann. After seeing some of his testing numbers they may be right. He’s an impressive athlete at almost 240 pounds.

Reminds me of me. Wait...not it doesn’t. At. All.

Regardless, this is good to see.

Husker Polling: Who will lead NU rushing attack to start year?
As you consider Nebraska's running backs, and what you've heard and even seen in glimpses from the running game this spring, we humbly submit today's Husker Polling topic.

We're asking you not for a season prediction in this case, but an out-of-the-gate prediction. Which Husker will lead the team in rushing after the first three games (at Illinois, Fordham, Buffalo). Things may change as the season rolls along, sure. But who do you think Nebraska is most likely to turn to at the start of 2021 to try get that run attack rolling?

Huskers holding strong in NCAA Tournament projections
Nebraska baseball righted the ship last weekend in New Jersey, going 3-1 against Rutgers and Indiana.

The NCAA Baseball Tournament projection picture changed slightly this week following that success by the Big Red.

‘We’re getting Justin Fields’: An exclusive look inside the tension, elation of Bears’ draft room – The Athletic
The flurry of phone activity that began the morning of the first day of the NFL draft ceased, at least momentarily. The televisions inside the draft room at Halas Hall were already turned down. Other conversations died down.

Nebraska Recruiting: Where Are All The Commits in College Football? - Nebraska Football Recruiting | Hail Varsity
We see peaks and valleys when it comes to the number of commitments happening during a typical recruiting cycle. Over the last year we saw some huge spikes in the numbers as prospects were gobbling up preferred spots. They had to do this in large part without visiting college campuses. Coaches accepted those commitments without meeting players in person in some cases.

Back during his Signing Day press conference in December, Nebraska coach Scott Frost still felt like he had a good handle on his new guys.

As the sequence that saved the game and the weekend for Nebraska unfolded, the only thing Cam Chick thought about was backing up third base.

Most potential walk-offs happen quickly, but this one dawdled in doubt for 12 seconds in a contest deadlocked at 6-6 in the bottom of the 12th inning Monday. With a man on first base and two outs, a Rutgers hitter landed a ball in the gap in right-center field. NU centerfielder Jaxon Hallmark chased it down, spun and threw in as the runner sped past third.
