Huskers Offense 2017

It has been a while since I’ve posted.  With all the craziness this season I have some things I wanted to post about.  I think I will do them in separate posts.  So here is the first one.

I watch the Wisconsin game last night and man we are a long way from anything close to the ’97 team.  While I love a bunch of the guys on the defensive line, we just don’t have the bad attitude or physicality … Read More....

Huskers vs Fresno State 9-2011

That was not what the Huskers thought would happen.  A Fresno State team that came to win not to be a punching bag for the “superior” team.

I am not going to review the game down by down.  I am going to say that it was a good win for the Huskers and a great punch in the face.  Exactly what this team needed in week 2.  The offense still didn’t have any fluidity in the first half but then … Read More....

Suh Makes the Pro Bowl

Congrats to Ndamukong Suh for being the only rookie to make the pro bowl this year.  Great season for an improving Detroit team and great reward for a great player and even better person!

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....

Courtney Osborne will not be Suspended

I see a lot of searches coming in today looking for information on Courtney and if he is suspended or not.  Courtney has not been suspended.  He would have had to have been suspended before today so he is available to play today at Iowa State.

Go Big Red!

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....

Suh and Vanden Bosch Team up in the NFL

Former Blackshirts Kyle Vanden Bosh and Ndamukong Suh teamed up against the Washington Redskins to get a sack and Suh’s first TD.

Suh\’s First Touchdown

Huskers Down Missouri One Final Time

The Huskers dominated an unbeaten Missouri team 31-17 one final time before the Huskers move to the Big Ten next season.

The big story of the day was Roy Helu’s monster rushing day.  He ran for a Husker single game record with 304 rushing yard and 3 touchdowns on 28 carries.  Helu had touch down runs of 66 and 73 in the first quarter and 53 in the third.  Roy passed Calvin Jones for the single game record.

Missouri had … 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....

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.

Blackshirt 5 games into 2010

Last night the Blackshirts played their butts off against Kansas State.  I will admit I was wondering how they would do against that running game.  I was happy to see the front 7 play well.  The secondary wasn’t tested much but they played well in run support.  You have to love when your corners will pop a running back coming at them.

Lavonte David had a GREAT night.  16 tackles and the guy was getting his own special blocker in … Read More....
