There’s a logic to the Huskers figuring this out. Scott Frost’s Year 2 magic. Quarterback Adrian Martinez. A friendlier schedule. But beating the Badgers and Hawkeyes will be necessary if NU wants to make any noise.
Let’s be honest, since joining this old-school fraternity, the Huskers have not given anyone any reason to care.
Nebraska went 4-8 last year, right? You’d never know it by hanging around the Chicago Hilton this week.
Look out, Chicago. Nebraska is making a big statement before they throw out the first syllable at Big Ten Kickoff.
After two incredible performances in this College World Series championship series, there are no complaints. Only anticipation of a classic Game 3. We’re due, right? For some game three drama. For some Game 3 history. For a Game 3 moment.
UConn's decision to move back to the Big East is great for the conference. It's great for Creighton. It's an exciting and proper reset for UConn sports.
Scott Frost. Fred Hoiberg. Will Bolt. Goodness, Bill Moos knows how to shop. Yes, all were obvious choices to coach at Nebraska. But Moos also got the three most qualified for the respective high-profile jobs.
The Big Ten won’t leave, and that’s a good thing.
Spider-Man, Captain America and a posse of folks dressed like super heroes walked past Kumar Rocker down the hallway and onto to the TD Ameritrade Park field Wednesday. Rocker should have joined them.
Michigan baseball won at the College World Series on Saturday, for the first time since 1983. Smirk at your own risk. This is a serious baseball team.
You could call this the Mike Martin College World Series. Get down and pray at home plate to the CWS baseball gods for a proper ending to a classy coaching career.
How do I love the College World Series? Let me count the ways — past, present and future:
History happens here every year. And then there’s Thursday. Banners that say “MLB in Omaha” adorn the inside of TD Ameritrade Park, awaiting the arrival of the Detroit Tigers and the Kansas City-Omaha Royals.
This is how you start a College World Series. With the energy of 25,454 packed into a beautiful ballpark on a gorgeous early summer night that was straight out of a baseball movie.
All is quiet on the Nebraska baseball front. Maybe a little too quiet.
Before we quickly turn the page and move on to the next chapter of Nebraska baseball, we should pause and recognize the moment. Darin Erstad may never put on a Nebraska uniform again.
This is the first time that three Division I baseball teams in the state have made the NCAA tournament in the same year. Let that sink in.
This year, the Road to Omaha truly begins in Omaha.
Olympians swimming inside a basketball arena. Nebraska playing a conference game at Rutgers. Nebraska football coach Bill Callahan. I’ve seen enough to know you never say never — and that includes beer sales at Memorial Stadium in Lincoln.
Nebraska baseball could use a spark. And so could this Big Ten baseball event we signed up to host. Can the two help each other? That would be the optimum story this week at TD Ameritrade Park.
An NCAA regional at TD Ameritrade Park next week is not out of the question if Creighton could win the Big East tournament.
The NBA star jokes that he can’t remember who gave the commencement speech at his Creighton graduation, but he won’t forget this one. He’s giving it.
Butch Hug’s title is officially associate athletic director for events at Nebraska. But I like to call him Mr. Wolf, the character in the movie “Pulp Fiction” who is known as a Mr. Fix-It. Farewell, Mr. Wolf.
Some thoughts on the Kentucky Derby, the most exciting 22 minutes in sports:
We’ve heard for decades that soccer was the sport of the future, but nobody says that anymore. It’s been feeding on the change in demographic in the United States and the evolving times. And that’s why I think minor league pro soccer has a chance in Omaha.
