Husker Dan: ’Tis the Season to Be Jolly?

8/6/20 | Husker Dan
Hallelujah! Joy! Awesome! Fantastic! Far Out! Rad! Cool! Groovy! Super! Sensational! (It's amazing what you can find in a thesaurus.) I know, we can't be giddy for too long considering there is a possibility the 2020 football season won't be played in its entirety or even at all. But for now, any news that points in the direction of having…

Pernell: Nebraska adds elite JUCO Defensive Back

7/28/20 | Jeremy Pernell
Scott Frost and his staff leave no stone unturned when it comes to looking for talent to add to the roster. He has reignited the storied walk-on program and this offseason has added several transfers from FBS programs. Most notable among them are offensive linemen Nouredin Nouili, who as a true freshman last season started seven games at guard for…

Husker Dan: What the Husker Season May Look Like

7/22/20 | Husker Dan
What the Husker football season is going to look like this fall has not been officially announced, but one of the scenarios allows for a full 12 game season for all of the B1G Ten Conference members. How is that possible when the B1G has eliminated all non-conference games?  Good question. WARREN PEACE? B1G Ten first-year commissioner Kevin Warren might…

Do you see the Huskers getting to 6-4 in the new Big Ten season?

7/13/20 | SquareOffs
Not a surprising announcement last week from the Big Ten that the 2020 is going to be shortened to conference play only. This enables the conference to perhaps push the start back a couple weeks and build in more open weekends. We should know more in a few weeks about whether the season will even happen. For now it's on.…

Stryker: If facts override fear, college stadiums should fill

7/1/20 | Tad Stryker
Fear certainly sells, and the Covid-19 pandemic has given the national media plenty of fuel to ramp up its fearmongering efforts. Unfortunately, the upcoming college athletic seasons, including football, could be disproportionately affected, unless decision-makers see through the one-sided narrative. I’m not surprised that the media report sensational-sounding raw numbers without context, but I’m disappointed in the scientific community for…

Monday Morning Quarterback: Who is your pick for the top Husker guard?

6/24/20 | SquareOffs
The Nebraska tradition for outstanding lineman is well known, with the Outland going to Huskers nine times, way more than any other school. A long line of Husker lineman have excelled on both sides of the ball. So many, that you can do things like compare greats at a single position - such as offensive guard, where two of the…

Husker Dan: Will There Be a College Football Season This Fall?

6/9/20 | Husker Dan
It's June and already the preseason college football magazines are appearing on shelves throughout the country.  And now that COVID 19 restrictions are being relaxed, amateur athletes from all over the nation have been resuming workouts at their respective colleges, universities and high schools.  Yes, social distancing measures are still being required, but the idea of college football games taking…

Nebraska: Kordell’s Kryptonite

6/3/20 | J. Hudson
Colorado quarterback Kordell Stewart was a dual-threat dynamo — except when he faced Nebraska. The Big Red had a way of making "Slash" look like an under-prepared third-stringer. The Big Eight’s all-time total offense leader with 7,770 yards, Stewart earned first-team all-conference honors as a senior in 1994. The Pittsburgh Steelers selected him in the second round of the 1995…

Stryker: Tom Novak stood tall amid Nebraska football depression

5/25/20 | Tad Stryker
It’s not often that a football team returns to the field early and watches the marching band wrap up its halftime show. They’ve usually got more urgent things on their mind. But even with a rare victory in sight, at the end of the worst decade in Nebraska football history, coach Bill Glassford and most of his team were fixated…

Monday Morning Quarterback: Do you think there will be college football this year?

5/4/20 | SquareOffs
On Friday the NCAA released a three-phase plan for resuming college sports. The three phases are based on the federal guidelines for easing social distancing and other limitations imposed such as prohibiting large gatherings. The NCAA is taking the position that in order for college sports to be resumed, "resocialization of collegiate sports must be grounded in resocialization of college…

Stryker: Are Cheeseheads as spoiled as Husker fans of yesteryear?

5/1/20 | Tad Stryker
Nationally, the NFL Draft was a timely, agreeable oasis for a nation starved of meaningful sports news. At my house, it was equally welcome; I watched most of the first round, and about half of rounds 2 and 3, which means I tuned in for more of the draft this year than the past five years combined. Despite its socially-distanced,…

Degrees of Separation for Husker Fans

I have always said that the six degrees of separation for Husker Fans is only three. I will start by sharing one experience I have had recently.

Twin picks: Davises drafted

To date, I don't know any one either in my family…

Stryker: All-Underrated team deserves renewed esteem

4/5/20 | Tad Stryker
Underrated does not necessarily mean underappreciated, at least when it comes to Nebraska football. Most Cornhusker fans know the two-deep lineup like the back of their hand, so it stands to reason they never let a solid performer escape their notice, even if he doesn’t get high postseason honors. This is my Husker All-Underrated Team, starting with 1962, the beginning…

Stryker: On expanded gambling and amateur athlete compensation

2/29/20 | Tad Stryker
Two arguments are swirling through the sports community of the Cornhusker State, and in the state legislature, whose current session recently passed its halfway point. One is part of a national debate on how amateur athletes should be compensated. The other is a statewide discussion on whether Nebraska should make it easier to bet on sports. Both have been the…

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…

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.

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?

There were some big coaching changes in Husker land this past week.

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…

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.

Best of the Decade: Wins against ranked teams

Husker Dan: Winter of Discontent?

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.

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.

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…
