The Huskers didn’t just win a game, they saved their season.
After a lifetime of mocking this league and eight years of witnessing it, maybe a change of attitude is in order.
World-Herald columnist Tom Shatel shares his immediate thoughts following the Huskers' 42-38 victory over Illinois.
This was the greatest stage of Nebraska volleyball. Until the next one. This was the most important nonconference game ever. The largest crowd. The biggest noise. Yes, yes, yes. Until the next time.
There are still a lot of questions for Nebraska as we watch an identity take shape. What mattered on Saturday night was that the Huskers provided a resounding answer just when they needed it most.
Husker fans will never celebrate a loss. But the loss to NIU two years ago was most useful. It changed the course of history, and without it, you can make the argument that Scott Frost wouldn't be here.
World-Herald columnist Tom Shatel shares his immediate thoughts following the Huskers' 44-8 victory against Northern Illinois.
Minnesota Viking great Chuck Foreman didn't want his son to play football, but Jay Foreman was having none of that and eventually had an NFL career of his own.
The Huskers received a lot of love in the preseason, but that's all based on predictions, and predictions are a goofy game.
Welcome back, Mr. Frost. How was the honeymoon? It’s going to be an interesting week around Lincoln. That is, Lincoln, Nebraska, and not Lincoln, Colorado.
World-Herald columnist Tom Shatel shares his immediate thoughts following the Huskers' 34-31 overtime loss to Colorado.
All eyes will be on Martinez on Saturday, for his response at Folsom Field.
The Legend of the Pipeline is alive and well and now extends to Clemson, South Carolina.
All the sophomoric farm jokes and such overshadowed an intense, physical and well-played series on the field.
Nebraska won. And nobody got wet. That’s your bottom line, on a sluggish opening day of the 2019 Nebraska football season. A day when a loss to South Alabama was certainly on the table. A day that felt like a disappointment.
First game came and went with a thud. What happened to the offense?
This season opener feels like a restart. Scott Frost Comes Home, Take 2.
Darrion Daniels is a force of nature, full of passion and personality and power and he never turns it off. That’s how he became King War Daddy.
Today’s athletes have been raised different, but it’s not fair to paint them as spoiled and soft. I’m from the old school, but I think old-school coaches have to adjust to the kids.
A lot of players hang on too long, to the detriment of their quality of life. It’s not about being macho. They can’t give up the game. Or, they need the money. Many never got their college degrees. Andrew Luck is a Stanford graduate with six years of quarterback money presumably saved up. Apparently, the man still uses a flip phone. He’s his own man.
It’s that time of year again, so let’s get right to the prediction.
Sometimes, a team does a vertical leap. It happens over a season. It can happen in one game, too. And if you look close, you can see it in the eyes of a losing coach filled with prideful satisfaction.
The expectation at Nebraska should be a team that is well-coached, plays physical and plays hard. A team always held to a high standard. Do that and the other stuff will fall into place. Are expectations in place? Not yet, not entirely.
Four of the five College Football Playoff titles (two each) have gone to Clemson or ’Bama. Three times, they’ve played for it. What we need is for someone to step up and break up the monopoly. I nominate the Big Ten.
Millard North football coach Fred Petito is a local icon, an institution. That means he’s good at what he does. It also means he’s been a constant, over four decades.
