Hot Reads: Hot Seat Rankings?

Last week ESPN Big Ten blogger Brian Bennett, in response to a mailbag question, came up with a "Hot Seat ranking" for the Big Ten. Bo Pelini was in the "seat's getting hot" category -- the worst category -- along with Rutger's Kyle Flood, Maryland's Randy Edsall and Illinois' Tim Beckman. This, predictably, drew some response for Nebraska fans so Bennett, along with his blogging comrade Adam Rittenberg, decided to revisit the topic fact versus fiction style. Here's their breakdown of ...

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 ...

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 ...

They Said It: Spring Game

Nebraska's Red squad (aka "The Offense") beat the White squad (aka "The Defense") 55-46 on yet another fun Saturday in Lincoln. If you were scoring at home -- and you sort of had to be under the new scoring system for the game this year -- that was six touchdowns, six extended drives (three consecutive first downs), four extra points and six plays of 20 yards or more for the Red to three interceptions, eight three-and-outs, six sacks, two missed/blocked extra ...

Bo Pelini Brought his Cat to Huskers’ Spring Game

Well, I guess this is a tradition now: You go to the Nebraska spring game, be prepared for anything to happen. Last year 7-year-old cancer patient Jack Hoffman made headlines with his emotional run late in Nebraska's annual Red-White scrimmage. This year, things were significantly more light-hearted as Bo Pelini brought a cat onto the field as part of the Huskers' famous tunnel walk. The move, inspired by the avatar of the wildly popular Faux Pelini Twitter account, quickly drew rave reviews ...

Huskers will go Offense-Defense in Spring Game

Nebraska closed it's last practice-practice on a high note Wednesday. All that remains now is the practice-game on Saturday, which will have a bit of a different format from previous years. "We will have an offense versus defense format going into Saturday," Bo Pelini said. "It’s the only way we’re going to be able to function." Injuries have limited Nebraska in a couple of spots, preventing the Huskers from splitting up into two separate teams this year. Instead, fans will get a ...

Huskers May Alter Spring Game Format

With one week left until the spring game, Nebraska scrimmaged Saturday in Memorial Stadium in front of a slightly larger crowd. "I thought it was a good day,” Bo Pelini said. "I thought it was a good week. I feel real good about this football team in some areas, and in some areas we’ve got to keep coming.” Things started rough for Nebraska as Aaron Curry went down early with an apparent neck injury that Bo Pelini said was similar to Ryne Reeves’ ...

Hot Reads: Top 20

Yesterday we wrote about Athlon Sports' ranking of the best coaching jobs in the Big Ten, where Nebraska finished fourth behind Ohio State, Michigan and Penn State. We know today where fourth in the Big Ten lands nationally, as Athlon has gone ahead and ranked all 128 college coaching jobs. It's the usual suspects at the top. Texas is No. 1. Florida is No. 2, which I'm not so sure I agree with. Is the Gators' gig better than Alabama's because there ...

Lewis, Joseph Get 1st Team Reps

Nebraska practiced for the first time in full pads Wednesday, with a couple new faces playing prominent roles in scrimmages. Colorado transfer offensive lineman Alex Lewis and redshirt freshman defensive back Boaz Joseph both played among the ones, and Bo Pelini liked the intensity. "I think Alex has a chance to be a good player,” he said. "He’s swimming in it a little bit, but as far as the mental aspect, though I think he’s picked things up pretty good." Pelini said ...

Hot Reads: Bo From Lincoln

Nebraska hammered out a season-high 17 hits yesterday, recording a 10-2 victory over Northern Colorado in the first game of a two-game series. It was the Huskers' fifth-straight win, pushed their record to 9-5 and landed coach Darin Erstad on last night's Sports Nightly radio program. That's when he got a call from "Bo from Lincoln." You can listen below: If you can't listen, the conversation goes like this: Pelini calls to joking ask if Erstad, the "former major leaguer," agrees that ...
