Planting the Flag

After Oklahoma beat Ohio State I watched one of the worst displays of sportsmanship I have seen in a long time when Baker Mayfield tried to plant the OU flag at the 50 yard line.  Unfortunately after playing a full football game on the field, Mayfield didn’t know it was a artificial turf surface.

Then this past Saturday Iowa State beat Oklahoma in Norman and one of their players grabbed a flag and planted it at the 50 yard line.… Read More....

What now for the not so Big 12

Now that A&M is leaving the Big 12 where does that leave everybody else?  I think it leave Oklahoma going to the PAC-12 or they could be sandbagging for the SEC.

What puzzles me is that people are picking Texas to go to the PAC-12??  I don’t think the PAC-12 will have them with the UT Network.  I don’t think anybody will have them with that.  I expect UT to go independant and the rest of the league scrambling to … Read More....

Colorado and Nebraska Split at the Right Time

The Big 12 made it sound like everything would be just fine after Nebraska and Colorado left for the Big Ten and Pac 12 respectively.

They should really change the name of the conference to Texas and the other 9.  The Big 12 is proving to be more and more dysfunctional.  Texas A&M says it regrets not leaving for the SEC while the getting was good and now the SEC says it is fine right where it is.

Personally I … Read More....

Getting down to it. Hello Big Ten

It is about that time.  This is going to be a very interesting year for the Huskers.  No more Kansas, Oklahoma, Colorado (unless both make the Rose bowl), it is all new teams (except the non-conference schedule where the Huskers play Washington for the 3rd time in a calendar year).

Games I most look forward to? First conference game right off the bat.  Wisconsin, Alvarez played linebacker at NU and was an assistant there.  NU and Wisconsin have a lot … Read More....

Oklahoma and A&M to SEC in the next 2 years

Sounds like OU and A&M aren’t so happy to be in the Big 12 and let Texas do whatever it likes.  I hear that OU and A&M told Texas that it has an unfair recruiting advantage with the UT network and that they are looking at moving to the SEC in the next couple years.

I have to say this is so funny.  It will leave UT on the outside looking in.  They will either be in a nothing conference … Read More....

RIP Austin Box

I just saw the Austin Box was found dead this morning.  I might now be a fan of his team but I always hate to hear about a young man dieing long before his time.  The games I saw him play in I remember thinking how talented he is and how I wouldn’t miss not seeing him next year as the Huskers moved to the Big Ten.  A great young player.

RIP Austin Box!

Huskers Final Big 12 Conference Game

The Huskers played their final Big 12 conference game last night against the Sooners in the Big 12 Championship game.  It was a tough loss 23-20 but a classic OU vs NU game.  Way to end a long standing rivalry.

The Huskers played some inspired ball in the first quarter but things stopped clicking after that.  The Blackshirts played a great game against a very tough Sooner offense.  They were put in bad position after bad position time after time … Read More....

Looking Forward to Huskers Last Game in the Big 12

I am really looking forward to the last game in the Big 12.  It isn’t for the reasons you might guess.

If this all has to come to an end, I am extremely happy it is doing so again Oklahoma.  There have been so many great games between these two schools.  I grew up hating the Sooners.  Over the years I had learned to respect them for the great team and traditions they have and have had over the years.… Read More....

Big East Expansion and What is Left of the Big 12

The Big East has said it is interested in adding two new teams for football.  I can’t help but think that Kansas, Missouri and Kansas State have to be thinking about it.  If any one of those schools could get in for football and basketball they would be all set.

These schools have to face the facts much as Colorado did, none of the other Big 12 schools care about them.  Texas definitely isn’t going to do them any favors … Read More....

NU the Big 12 Scape Goat for Missouri

Seems there is a lot of hate in the Big 12 for Nebraska this year.  Everybody is upset because the Huskers are leaving for the Big Ten.  All the fans that are upset at the Huskers should really be upset with Missouri.  Why?  Well Missouri is the school that started all this.

It was Missouri; actually the Governor of Missouri that came out before the Big 12 meetings and said that the University of Missouri was leaving for the Big … Read More....

Huskers Join 30,000 Point Club

On Saturday the Huskers joined the 30,000 point club.  The Huskers are only the 3rd team to join this club.  The other two members are the Michigan Wolverines and Oklahoma Sooners.  The next team likely to join is the Notre Shame(Dame)  Fighting Irish.

I was looking around to see how far Bevo is out but couldn’t find the info.  I am going to bet they won’t make it any time soon.  Notre Dame is something like 500 points away and … Read More....

800 Wins

Of the 7 now schools with 800 wins 4 of them will be in the Big 10 next year. Congrats to Oklahoma for joining the club.
