Huskers vs Badgers 2011

What do you say about getting pounded like that on national tv?

First the good.  The first quarter the Huskers looked good, played well on offense and defense against a very good Wisconsin team.  The o-line were moving people off the ball and pretty much doing what they wanted to.  It was good to see Brandon Kennie make some grabs and block a couple of guys so far into the bench I was worried there were flags coming.  Jared Crick … Read More....

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....

More on the Hit Courtney Osborne put on Blaine Gabbert

Gary Pinkle sent a video of the hit to the league office today.  Even Pinkle admitted in his press conference that Blaine ducked just before the hit.  I really don’t see a case of a suspension, not that Dan Beebe won’t do it.

Here is the major issue if the Big 12 does suspend Courtney.  They are saying that their officials blew the call on the field and that they also below it on instant replay.

The short version of … Read More....

Why Courtney Osborne Can Not Be Suspended by the Big 12

On the ABC telecast of the Husker’s game this weekend Ed (I make the rules) Cunningham said that Courtney Osborne’s hit on Blaine Gabbert was illegal and he should have been flagged.  He also mentioned Eric Martin being suspended for the same kind of thing.

Blaine fumbled the ball on the play and it was run back for a touchdown by Pierre Allen.  The ref’s blew it dead and said that Blaine’s forward progress was stopped and therefore there was … Read More....

Huskers at Okie State 2010

Wow, that was a fast paced, high scoring game. What a great way to end the series between the Huskers and Cowboys.

Taylor Martinez played his butt off. He showed the nation that he can not only run the ball but can throw it as well. He finished the game 23 of 35 for 323 and 5 TD’s as well as 112 yards rushing. Pretty impressive stats for the freshman. I am still having a hard time figuring out how … Read More....

Niles Paul Drops the Ball

Another Husker fan that I follow posted a great blog post about this and kind of got me going on this again.  The original post is linked below.

You know that saying “put up or shut up”, well Nile Paul had his chance to put up during the Texas game as did Brandon Kennie.  I hate to bag on players, but Niles has been talking a lot in the press.  I guess he thinks he is making millions in the … Read More....

Mack Brown’s Bone Head Play of the Year

This might be one of the dumbest plays I have seen.  Huskers had a DB back.  Mack Brown decides to pooch kick from a field goal formation where the fastest guy on the field is the holder.  As a Husker fan this was the highlight of the game.

Amazing.  Easy for a guy like Eric Hagg to out run a bunch of offensive linemen.

Huskers the Day After the Bevo Beating

It has been almost 24 hours since the Husker Nation was disappointed by the loss to the Longhorns.  I have had some time to reflect on the game and the rest of the season.

First off that loss was not as bad as it seemed.  The offense was stagnate yes but the QB’s both showed they can make throws that could have won the game.  The receivers and running backs need to work on catching it.  But the quarterbacks put … Read More....

Bevo Takes it.

Well that was tough to take.

Bevo came out and forced NU into mistakes right away.  Huskers turned the ball over early spotting Bevo a 10 point lead and then Bevo drove the ball down the field to get another 7.

The Huskers did exactly what I said they couldn’t do, turn the ball over.  The defense didn’t tackle and Bevo forced NU to throw the ball.

Bevo’s D keyed on the run and force NU into the passing game.  … Read More....

Bevo Getting Bounces in First Half

Well Bevo has gotten all the bounces in the first half.  Texas had one drive that looked really good against the Blackshirts.  The other 10 points came off a fumble and a big punt return.

The Huskers are doing exactly what I said they couldn’t do.  Fumble and not tackle. One thing I didn’t see what Gilbert running the ball as he has.

Huskers just off on a couple of big plays in the first half that could have changed … Read More....

It is Gameday! Bevo BBQ

It is the game that Husker fans have been waiting for since the end of last season.  Texas at Nebraska!

This is the game that for a lot of fans will make or break the season.  Not that a loss today would be the end of the season for the Huskers but some fans, especially right after the game, will feel it is.

Well the good news is that on paper Nebraska should win.  Nebraska’s D is putting up better … Read More....
