Matt Lubick: Let’s get Nebraska “back to the standard”

2/21/20 | HuskerMax
In an Athletic Department video released Friday, new Nebraska offensive coordinator Matt Lubick said he feels energized after his year away from coaching: "It just lit a fire underneath me because it really made me realize what I miss about coaching, and that's the relationships, the camaraderie with the coaches and that daily give and take with the players." Now…

Monday Morning Quarterback: Should the NCAA seek exemption from antitrust regulation?

2/17/20 | SquareOffs
We hear more and more about discussions within the NCAA leadership and member schools about seeking an antitrust exemption. An antitrust exemption would enable the NCAA to mandate how schools address the number of legal challenges facing college sports. The legal challenges facing the NCAA are significant. The "Fair Pay to Play" player compensation in California and in various stages…

Monday Morning Quarterback: Should Nebraska legalize sports betting?

2/11/20 | SquareOffs
In the news currently are three separate bills related to sports gambling introduced to the Nebraska legislature. One of those measures - LB791 - would legalize sports betting in Nebraska for both pro and college athletics. While the bill would open up gambling on any sports team, if you are talking athletics in Nebraska there is obviously nothing bigger than…

Pernell: Reviewing the 2020 Recruiting Class (Defense)

2/6/20 | Jeremy Pernell
Position Group Summaries (Defense) Defensive Line (4): If anyone was a bigger target than Turner Corcoran, it might have been Nash Hutmacher. The backbone of a good 3-4 defense has always been the nose guard. Defensive coordinator Erik Chinander has said that the nose guard in his system needs to be "the heavyweight champion of the world." Defensive line coach…

Pernell: Reviewing the 2020 Recruiting Class (Offense)

Position Group Summaries (Offense) Quarterback (1): For the third year in a row, Scott Frost and Mario Verduzco were able to sign a top-of-the-board class quarterback. The staff identified Logan Smothers early and were able to get him on board before they had even coached a game in Lincoln. The Huskers offered Smothers back on May 17, 2018, becoming the…

Stryker: Recent coaching hires can work if innovation happens

1/25/20 | Tad Stryker
College football fans nationwide worry about their teams and second-guess the head coach. Nothing newsworthy there, but nobody I know does it quite as well these days as observers of the Nebraska Cornhuskers. Few people are as passionate as Husker football fans. Believe me, I hear from them, as does anyone else who writes about the program. I almost never…

Monday Morning Quarterback: Should Coach Frost hand off play calling?

1/20/20 | SquareOffs
There were some big coaching changes in Husker land this past week. Coach Scott Frost let go of offensive coordinator and receivers coach Troy Walters, replacing him with Matt Lubick, who Frost worked with at Oregon. Lubick spent the last year out of football but worked as a consultant for Frost during that time. Frost also gave offensive line coach…

Monday Morning Quarterback: Best gift – Piatowski or Hoppen jersey?

Best Birthday Gift Jersey - Eric Piatowski or Dave Hoppen? Your best friend, a huge Husker hoops fan, has a birthday coming up. You've narrowed your gift selection to two b-ball jerseys - Eric Piatkowski or Dave Hoppen. Hmmmm... Piatowski was a sweet-shooting small forward with a killer jump shot.

Stryker: Coming off Decade of Instability, NU needs turning point

12/28/19 | Tad Stryker
If you’re getting ready to flush the past decade of Nebraska football, I have two things to say to you: That’s not a bad idea, not bad at all. But before you flush, pause for a bit of historical perspective. There’s no reason to sugar-coat it: the 2010s were the third-worst decade in 120 years — 13 decades — of…

Best of the Decade: Team records

12/26/19 | J. Hudson
Record-best team accomplishments were a scarce commodity for Nebraska football in the 2010s. As noted in the previous segment, dozens of individual records were set. But safely out of reach for another decade were team records like the 1983 offense's 401.7 rushing yards per game and the 1967 defense's per-game average of 67.5 rushing yards allowed. Besides some record-setting comebacks,…

Best of the Decade: Individual record-setters

12/24/19 | J. Hudson
The Nebraska record book required frequent updates during the 2010s. Even as losses outnumbered wins in the decade's latter half, players were posting chart-topping numbers. In all, more than two dozen Huskers hold records for feats that occurred during the decade and/or for career totals that included at least one season in the 2010s. We'll start with these six who…

Monday Morning Quarterback: How are you feeling about the Husker recruiting class?

12/23/19 | SquareOffs
The Huskers signed 23 scholarship players during the early national signing period. Nine of the 23 signees are at front-seven positions, including 6'2", 270 lb. Pheldarius Payne, a defensive lineman out of Virginia. A lot of effort looks like it paid off on getting defensive secondary talent in the house, including top recruit Jaiden Francois, a 6'1", 182 lb. corner…

Husker Dan: A Very Sad, Gray Day for Husker Fans

Gerry Gray, longtime sponsor of the Hunt With The Huskers charity event and producer of several Husker radio talk shows and the The Great Outdoors Radio Show with Greg Wagner, passed away Sunday, December 15th at the age of 82. On the surface, Gerry could be a crusty curmudgeon.  But beneath that tough veneer was a generous, warm, thoughtful and…

General coverage and commentary from the day's developments and Frost's press conference are listed here, while player-specific articles and videos can…

Best of the Decade: Claims to fame

12/16/19 | J. Hudson
Hall of Fame material? The Huskers had some during the 2010s. It became more and more rare as the decade went on, but three dozen Huskers earned honors that someday could land them in the Nebraska Football Hall of Fame. The threshold for HOF consideration: All-America or first/second team All-Big 12/Big Ten status. Ten of the 36 players earned first-,…

Best/Worst of the Decade: The blown leads

12/12/19 | J. Hudson
A dark cloud makes a brief visit today to our Best of the Decade series. As Monday's installment showed, the Huskers pulled off big comeback wins with exceptional frequency during the 2010s. But it's our duty to point out that the decade of the come-from-behind win was also the decade of the blown lead for Nebraska football. Seven times during…

Husker Dan: 2020 and Brown on Red

12/10/19 | Husker Dan
After another disappointing season, Husker fans are left wondering about the program's future under the direction of Scott Frost and his staff.  Can Nebraska ever get back to respectability?  And if they can, when is it going to happen? Scott Frost often says that you are what your record says you are and right now, the Huskers' record over the…

Best of the Decade: The comebacks

12/9/19 | J. Hudson
Don't leave early. Don't even think about it. That's one thing the 2010s taught Huskers fans. It was the decade of the come-from-behind win for Nebraska football. Of the program's 31 known victories from a dozen or more points behind, 11 happened in the 2010-2019 seasons. That's almost quadruple the average rate of the previous seven decades. Embed from Getty…

Best of the Decade: Wins against ranked teams

12/5/19 | J. Hudson
The Huskers' 58.1% winning percentage in the 2010s was the third-lowest in program history, but there was still plenty to cheer about. Here we look back on Nebraska's nine victories over AP-ranked teams (based on gameday or final AP rankings). That was down from 12 in the previous decade.

Husker Dan: Winter of Discontent?

12/3/19 | Husker Dan
Now is the winter of our discontent.   - From "Richard III" by William Shakespeare • Judging by the mail I've been receiving in the wake of the Huskers' loss to Iowa last Friday, Husker fans are not in a good mood.  What's more, they have every right to feel that way. The 2019 Husker football season was one that was…

Pernell: Frost, Nebraska Trying to Finish Strong Class

12/3/19 | Jeremy Pernell
It's official, Nebraska will not play in a bowl game for the third consecutive season, something that hasn't happened since the 1955-1961 seasons. The Huskers finished 5-7, with a dreadful 1-5 stretch to end the season. In the midst of that skid, Frost ruffled a few of his players' feathers with some of his public comments. In particular were comments…

Stryker: Mental mistakes send Huskers home for holidays again

11/29/19 | Tad Stryker
A season-ending game against a rival with a bowl bid on the line is a great time to ramp up your performance in the second half and rally from a 14-point deficit to tie the game. It’s a lousy time to make bad decisions. But two boneheaded miscalculations — one by a coach, another by a player — made the…

Stryker Pregame Perspective: Fisher gets nod as best assistant

Some folks were a bit hesitant to answer this week’s Pregame Perspective question. Others gave it a great deal of thought.

Stryker: A long day’s flight into rejuvenation for Big Red

11/23/19 | Tad Stryker
A long flight to an unfamiliar venue did wonders for a Cornhusker football team trying to find its way. It’s amazing how depression disperses and demons disappear when you go out and smack another team in the mouth. And keep doing it again and again. It’s stunning how a 54-7 road win can change a team’s attitude, even if it…

Stryker: Martinez, Huskers giving away everything gained last year

Stryker Report: Blackshirt downturn requires further Husker fan patience

10/27/19 | Tad Stryker
It was a day of black shirts. But not a day for the Blackshirts. The Huskers wore black jerseys Saturday to honor the Blackshirt defensive tradition, and there was a lot of black sprinkled through the Sea of Red in Memorial Stadium.

The season is slipping away from Nebraska, which is 4-4 and floundering. The Cornhuskers are regressing in their defense and kicking game. The Huskers worked on…

A guy who quarterbacked a team that was a missed 45-yard field goal away from coming off three-straight National Championships. In Frost's second game as a starter, coming off of a…
