Husker Dan: Can the Huskers Catch the Mouse?

10/14/19 | Husker Dan
THE ALLEGORY There is an old story about a man who had a mouse problem. Sure, he had a mouse trap, but when he went to the refrigerator to get some cheese to put in the trap, he discovered he didn't have any. What am I to do? he wondered.  But then he got a bright idea.  Instead of using…

Stryker: Huskers needlessly embarrassed by Gophers

10/13/19 | Tad Stryker
Heading into a bye week, Scott Frost said he wanted his team to empty the tank. But I don’t think he meant before the opening kickoff. That’s pretty much what it looked like as Nebraska was beaten to a pulp on both sides of the line of scrimmage Saturday night in Minneapolis. With the Gophers coming in undefeated, I’d wager…

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.

Travis Fisher did a remarkable job with this secondary last season. It's hard to remember now, but a year ago the lack of proven depth at defensive back was one of the biggest concerns on the team heading into Scott Frost's first season. Fisher said last years game against Northwestern was the most difficult for him. The Wildcats threw it 64…

Pernell: Previewing the Defensive Line

8/27/19 | Jeremy Pernell
Stopping the run has been a popular talking point among defensive players this offseason. They know they have to get better. Last year they got pushed around too often, rarely stuffed their opponents in short-yardage situations and gave up 195.8 rushing yards per game, which ranked 96th nationally. Nebraska's defense finished 107th in rushing yards per carry allowed (5.0) and…

Husker Dan: Let the Games Begin!

8/26/19 | Husker Dan
THE REASON WHY A reader (Craig from Connecticut) sent me an email recently, opining about Scott Frost. I'm paraphrasing,  "Frost didn't leave a 13-0 program at Central Florida to come to the cold climes of Nebraska just to go 7-5 or 8-4 and play in second rate bowl games each year.  He came here for two reasons:  to win conference…

Nebraska has all the makings of an elite offense. Scott Frost's system is dynamic, it's multiple, it's dangerous, it's explosive, it's proven. They have one of the best quarterbacks in college football, and the skill positions are deep and full of potential game-breakers. Guys are familiar with the scheme, and after another offseason, they're comfortable and playing with confidence. The…

Pernell: Previewing the Tight Ends

8/25/19 | Jeremy Pernell
The tight end room didn't lose a single player from last year and won't after this upcoming season, either. Sean Beckton's group is deep and talented. It's full of big-bodied guys who move well and present tough matchups for linebackers in coverage. The longevity of the room has helped Beckton groom his guys over the past two offseasons. Guys have…

8/24/19 | Jeremy Pernell
Stanley Morgan was the most productive receiver in Nebraska football history, breaking six school records and becoming the program's first-ever 1,000-yard receiver last season (1,004).

Pernell: Previewing the Running Backs

8/23/19 | Jeremy Pernell
This staff was very high on incoming juco standout Dedrick Mills during the recruiting process. It was a bit of a nail-biter getting him to campus.
