Hot Reads: Defining Success

Perhaps you've seen the headlines: "Eric Crouch Says Huskers' Title Drought is 'Unacceptable.'" Those headlines are accurate. Eric Crouch did use the word "unacceptable" when talking about the fact that Nebraska hasn't won a conference title since he was in school. 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 ...

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 ...
