But it's a long, long while From May to December And the days grow short When you reach September   –Lyrics from Kurt Weill's "September Song" This was to have been the week I was going to write about the Husker Spring Game, how 85,000 people came out on a beautiful, cool spring day to see what this year's crop of…

Husker Dan: The Huskers need to get to Carnegie Hall

Dear Readers: I hope all of you are coping as best as you can with the COVID-19 pandemic that now has reached over 180 countries.  Many people have died and more will, so I urge everyone to heed the basics in trying to limit the spread of the disease. To date, I don't know any one either in my family…

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…

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…

Husker Dan: 2020 and Brown on Red

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…

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

11/29/19 | Tad Stryker
Some folks were a bit hesitant to answer this week’s Pregame Perspective question. Others gave it a great deal of thought.

Husker Dan: Won and One to Go

11/25/19 | Husker Dan
This Friday, Nebraska will be playing a game in which the future of Husker football is at stake - at least for the near future.  Beat the Iowa Hawkeyes and the Huskers will become bowl eligible.  And with a win, Nebraska will be assured of its first non-losing season since 2016. Nebraska put itself in position to become bowl eligible…

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…

Finally, we saw some definite progress in Scott Frost’s second season as head coach. Better late than never. Playing without freshman phenom Wan’Dale Robinson, Nebraska came out and hit Wisconsin in the mouth early. The Huskers made a superior Badger team scramble, but couldn’t sustain their effort as the game wore on. The Badgers got their own running game lathered…

Stryker: Martinez, Huskers giving away everything gained last year

11/2/19 | Tad Stryker
Back in August, Nebraska was a narrow favorite for the Big Ten’s West Division title, and Husker quarterback Adrian Martinez was one of the main reasons for that line of thought. Man, does that ever seem like a long time ago. The Cornhuskers’ gut-wrenching 31-27 defeat at Purdue — Scott Frost’s eighth one-score loss at Nebraska — was the latest…

Stryker: Small-town magic gives Huskers crucial walk-off win

10/5/19 | Tad Stryker
It’s a long way for a quarterback from Wahoo, Nebraska, to go Orlando, Florida, then return to Lincoln to lead a game-winning scoring drive at Memorial Stadium.

Stryker Pregame Perspective: Rush defense most consistent aspect

10/5/19 | Tad Stryker
Coach Scott Frost urged his team to take the Ohio State game and flush it as quickly as possible. Since the Huskers were 3-1 before that game, and the Buckeyes had superior talent at every position, it's a legitimate course of action. So that’s what I did with this week’s Pregame Perspective.
