Feit: A Rebuttal to Dan Wetzel

10/30/20 | Dave Feit
On Thursday, Dan Wetzel of Yahoo! Sports posted a column entitled "Nebraska's messy marriage with Big Ten getting uglier every day".   While the impetus for the column was the news of Nebraska's proposal to play Tennessee-Chattanooga this weekend (filling a hole created when Wisconsin cancelled) being rejected, it quickly turned into a rehash of the same over-inflated talking points…

Feit: Five Questions for the 2020 Season

10/23/20 | Dave Feit
With the 2020 season kicking off tomorrow, there are many lingering questions that will shape the course of the season.  Here are five that I am very curious about:   1. How long is Martinez's leash? For the purposes of this question, we are going to assume that the QB competition in camp was as competitive as advertised and Luke…

8/13/20 | Dave Feit
This week has seen a month's worth of drama after the Big Ten announced they are postponing the fall sports season until the spring.  Here is a quick - and by no means complete - timeline of events:   Wednesday, August 5:  The Big Ten releases the 2020 conference football schedule, along with a five page "executive summary" of COVID-19…

Feit: Moral Buck-tories & Progress

11/6/18 | Dave Feit
Let's talk for a minute about "moral victories". Scott Frost doesn't want to acknowledge moral victories, and I don't blame him.  Most competitors would rather punch their mother than celebrate a moral victory.  You either win or you lose...and unfortunately this Nebraska team will end the season with more losses than wins.  Nobody wants to be a part of team that…

Feit: Rejected Tunnel Walk Songs

8/30/18 | Dave Feit
Change is coming to Nebraska's beloved Tunnel Walk. It appears that "Sirius" by the Alan Parsons Project (by way of the Chicago Bulls) is on its way out and something new will be pumped over the speakers Saturday night. But what is that new song?  Athletic Director Bill Moos wouldn't say, only hinting that it goes with NU's theme of  "Honor…

Feit: Big Ten Power Rankings – week of 9/25/2017

9/29/17 | Dave Feit
It's time once again for the Big Ten Power Rankings, where we rank the fourteen Big Ten teams using a proprietary formula of expert analysis, biased opinions, and blind guesses.  For another look at how I predicted the division races, click here.   Penn State. They won the game of the week, and looked good doing it.  Saquon Barkley showed…
