Hot Reads: Good and Bad

I'm not quite sure why the thing to follow exists other than for me to point you to it, so who am I to deny a thing's reason for being? The Wall Street Journal has created a graph with the title "How Good (and Bad) Is Your Team?". On the x-axis it measures teams by how good or bad they are on the field on a scale of "weakling" to "powerhouse." On the y-axis it measures how good or bad a ...

What a Difference a Year Makes

New year, new look. Bo Pelini showed up for his first weekly press conference of the new football season sporting a scarlet blazer over a crisp white shirt. People noticed. Particularly when Pelini's usual game day attire -- gray sweatshirt, khakis -- has become something of a meme of its own. Like a lot of things with Nebraska football, however, that might be changing this year. "It’s the 125th year (of Nebraska football), I wanted to pay my respects to Coach Devaney and Coach ...

Plenty Undecided at Close of Fall Camp

Take a deep breath. Then pat yourself on the back. We made it, everyone. It’s officially game week. Fitting, then, that the Huskers practiced in Memorial Stadium Saturday morning. Not much news came from Saturday’s walkthrough, but we have some timelines for the big questions about Nebraska coming out of fall camp. The weekend before game day has typically been a day under Bo Pelini when he announces which walk-on players will receive scholarships. Not this year however -- Pelini said that announcement, along with the ...

2 Weeks Down, 2 to Go

Nebraska practiced for nearly two hours in the morning heat on the outdoor practice field on campus Saturday. With two weeks down, it’s the defense that appears to have the advantage at this point in fall camp. Bo Pelini said on defense however, there are a couple positions with “a little too much separation between the ones and the twos,” but he still likes the competition. “I think we’re right where we want to be,” he said. Pelini beat the heat by ...

Pelini Favors a Power 5-only Schedule

The autonomy vote is in and, in what should come as a surprise to no one, the Power 5 conferences got what they wanted: The power to pass rules without the approval of the smaller conferences. Now let's wait five years and see how this changes the game at both ends. Unless of course the Power 5 conferences decide to proceed with an idea that seems to be picking up steam -- only playing each other. That, more than better benefits and ...

First Practice in the Books

Yes, it’s here at last. Football season officially began Monday night at the Hawks Championship center as Nebraska conducted its first practice of fall camp, with mostly no roster surprises and a quick pace. It appears that Bo Pelini and the coaching staff truly are committing to the new efficiency mantra. “For the first day, I liked the tempo,” Pelini said. “I thought it was an efficient practice. I thought guys competed. There were a lot of mistake; a lot of first day mistakes.” Pelini ...

Freeze Fires Back at Pelini

One of the more instantly quotable moments of Bo Pelini's time at Big Ten media days this week was when the head coach was asked about what happened with Damore'ea Stringfellow. The former Washington wide receiver had signed non-binding transfer papers with Nebraska but then unexpectedly switched to Ole Miss after his mother accompanied him on a visit to Oxford. Pelini's didn't pull any punches with his response: “Read between the lines,” he said. “I think we all know what happened in ...

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. Bell and Pelini both talked the future of Nebraska’s offensive identity, the hope to become more efficient and alternate uniforms (yes, they’ll have them this year.) of course Pelini’s post-cat image ...

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 ...
