Husker Dan: WU @NU: “Old” Red vs The “New” Red?

10/2/17 | Husker Dan
THE "REAL" BIG RED? Don't look now, but the "Old" Nebraska is coming to Lincoln this Saturday to play the "New" Nebraska team. Let me explain.

Pernell: How hot should Mike Riley’s seat be?

9/20/17 | Jeremy Pernell
Nebraska essentially paid Northern Illinois $820k to put its head coach on the hot seat. Following an inexcusable 21-17 loss to the Huskies, Nebraska is now sitting at 1-2 - and could very easily be 0-3 - heading into conference play. Mike Riley is in year 3 and losing to MAC teams coming off a 5-7 season should not be…

Stryker: Soft September in Lincoln

9/16/17 | Tad Stryker

Unfortunately for Riley and his coaching staff, it’s September now and they have to play real football games. After a brutally disappointing 21-17 loss to Northern Illinois, the Huskers are 1-2 and reeling. A coach who…

Husker Dan: Time for a gut check

9/16/17 | Husker Dan

And the lone win was against Arkansas State in a game that came down to the last play. And with that scare, Nebraska could very easily be 0-3. And what is going to happen once conference play…
