Huskers take 1 of 3 from Northwestern

After back-to-back losses to Northwestern with dismal offensive outputs to open the weekend series, Nebraska bounced back in the second game of a Saturday double-header to avoid the weekend sweep with a 10-9 win. The Huskers couldn’t back up Friday starter Christian DeLeon’s third straight start of nine innings, in which he held the Wildcats to just one run, before falling 2-1 in 12 innings. In game one of the Saturday double header, Nebraska’s Chance Sinclair pitched seven innings, giving up ...

Tweets of the Week: Spring Game Wrap-up

TGIF, Huskers. And what a week it has been. If you’ve been near a TV, computer or cell phone over the last week, you probably know a lot happened in Lincoln, Nebraska. Hopefully you were on Twitter to experience it all that way, too. If not, we have you covered. From cats to hay bales to the remembrance of a beloved quarterback, there were plenty of tweets to share this week. In fact, there were so many that some had ...

Hot Reads: Nice Shoes

The University of Louisville signed a new five-year deal with Adidas yesterday, which normally wouldn't be big news around here but it sort of became that because a) Adidas also supplies Nebraska, b) the Huskers just re-upped with the company last summer and c) Louisville got more money. The deal has been reported as a five-year deal worth $39 million, which would rank second among Adidas schools behind only Michigan ($8.2 million/year). Nebraska, under its new deal which runs through 2018, ...

Game Time Announced for Nebraska-Fresno State

If you're not making the trip with Nebraska to Fresno State this September then have some coffee ready. It's going to be a late one. The Mountain West conference announced Thursday that the Huskers and Bulldogs will kickoff at 9:30 p.m. CT on Sept. 13 in Fresno. The game will be televised by CBS Sports Network. That bring Nebraska's total night games in 2014 so far to three, two of which will come on back-t0-back weeks in September. Earlier this week the ...

Hot Reads: The Rhetoric

Are you a fan of Mad Men? Judging from the actual numbers that show draws -- and not the amount it's talked about -- I'm probably not hitting a ton of you in your wheelhouse but if you do watch Mad Men and you consider yourself a fan, here's a question: What's your favorite part? Characters? Character drama? Revisiting the 1960s? Roger (just Roger)? Don Draper delivering the perfect pitch? Or Freddy Rumsen doing the same (no spoilers, but, *wink*)? That last part ...

Nebraska Bats Stay Hot Against Mavs

Nebraska tallied 17 hits in a 17-6 blasting of Nebraska-Omaha Wednesday night, the day after racking up 22 hits in a 14-5 win over Kansas State. The Huskers built an insurmountable lead with 10 runs in the second inning to spark the Huskers’ 10th win in the last 11 games. Wednesday night marked the first game since 2012 that Nebraska scored 17 runs in a game. “When you see an offense start piecing together hits, there’ll be times during the year ...

Huskers Land 10th Commit for 2015 Class

Nebraska continued its quick pace on the recruiting trail this year on Wednesday, landing one of the top players in Illinois for the Huskers 10th verbal commitment in the 2015 class.

Hot Reads: More Pelini-Parsing

Here's one writer who isn't totally buying the "Bo Pelini starts making jokes on Twitter --> Bo Pelini opens practices --> Bo Pelini wins the internet with a cat --> Bo Pelini has turned over a new leaf" flow chart that's been written about at length since Nebraska's win over Georgia in the Gator Bowl. Judging from the reaction to Michael Weinreb's story about this over on Sports on Earth, this is not a popular take among Husker fans. This is the ...

Huskers Hammer Wildcats, 14-5

It’s probably safe to say Michael Pritchard’s streak is over. The Nebraska-Kansas State baseball variety show opened curtain Tuesday at 6:30 with Pritchard in the leading role, and it didn’t close until 9:54 in a crushing 14-5 win for Nebraska. “Hitters hit,” Darin Erstad said of Prtichard, who has batted .520 over the last six games. “The guy can roll out of bed and hit…those kind of guys, they don’t apply to the normal rules of baseball." The Wildcats opened with an explosive ...

Mailbag: Is Bo Pelini Now the Cat’s Meow?

Welcome to the offseason, Husker fans. But don’t get too comfortable. Despite there still being about four months left until the season begins, there are no days off at Hail Varsity. And proving that fact, we’ll continue our mailbag through the offseason because we know there will still be questions (even if they’re primarily about a cat). It’s clear that the mindset has fully switched to football, though. When we put the call out for questions, football was the focus ...
