Tuesday with Bo & Bell

CHICAGO, Ill. - Media members had a more casual atmosphere Tuesday with Big Ten players and coaches at the Hilton ballroom during the second and final session of Big Ten Media Days. For two hours, Bo Pelini, Kenny Bell, Corey Cooper and Ameer Abdullah fielded question from the media in a roundtable setting.

Huskers Streamlining Practice in 2014

CHICAGO, Ill. - Kenny Bell dislocated his shoulder and sprained the AC joint in his left shoulder against South Dakota State in 2013.  At one point, his "collar bone area” was so swollen that it nearly touched his chin, Bell said.“I would wake up every Sunday morning and couldn’t lift my left arm above my waist,” he said. Quincy Enunwa played through similar pain, playing with a bilateral MCL sprain. “I felt terrible every single game after South Dakota State. Terrible. My ...

Pelini Counting on Young DBs

CHICAGO, Ill. -- Nebraska has the benefit in 2014 of returning some talented playmakers at each level of the defense. From officially designated "player to watch" Randy Gregory up front, to a linebacker corps that's as deep as its been in recent memory, to the secondary led by seniors Josh Mitchell at cornerback and Corey Cooper at safety, on paper there aren't too many holes in the Huskers defense in terms of experienced talent. But that doesn't mean there isn't ...

Here's the interview with Campus Insiders from whence that comment came:   And in case you can't play a video right now, here's what he said: Crawford: What do you think will define success for Pelini and the Huskers in 2014? Crouch: I think ...

Hot Reads: Slow Recruiting

Lot of Nebraska-centric stories yesterday for a random day in early June. So many, that I'm altering the formula a bit today. More stories, slightly shorter entries just to make sure we get everything. Slow Recruiting In the only story that triggered an ESPN text alert on my phone, Bo Pelini told the World Wide Leader that he'd like to get rid of National Signing Day: "If somebody has offered a kid, let him sign, it's over," Pelini told ESPN.com on Wednesday. "That ...

Hot Reads: Pro Bo

The Big Ten's spring meetings are happening right now in Chicago and the conference ADs are all in town discussing the hot topics of the day; power conference autonomy, scheduling, athlete stipends, beer sales and so on. Conference commissioner Jim Delany is usually good for having an interesting thing or two to say at these meetings, but it's been pretty quiet so far. Reporters in attendance did get to talk to the athletic directors yesterday, however, and Shawn Eichorst threw some ...

Huskers Make the Grade

With more all-time Academic All-Americans than other program in the country, Nebraska football has always been a leader off-the-field as well as on. On Wednesday the Huskers earned another honor for their work in the classroom as Nebraska received a Public Recognition Award from the NCAA for finishing in the top 10 percent nationally among FBS programs in Academic Progress Rate. APR is a four-year measure that factors in retention and graduation rates. Teams that fail to meet the NCAA's minimum standard ...

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 ...
