With a passion for the Nebraska Cornhuskers and a love for the non-stop modern college football landscape, he hopes to take you on this journey with him through ups and downs that come with being a Husker fan.

This offseason offered up a ton of questions, and Saturday’s spring game hosted just as many answers. The only inquiry left is on the defensive side of the ball. The Huskers sat out multiple starters on defense to keep them healthy and prevent injury. Even with multiple key players sitting out the defense still looked above average, and when those key pieces are turned loose this defense could look fantastic. With the injury to Blye Hill’s knee we are left with a spot in the defensive backfield since Blye was projected to be a starter. With plenty of young talent…

The transfer portal is looked at by Huskers Head Coach Matt Rhule as more of a tool for opportunity rather than a tool of key significance. Rhule has received plenty of heat for not going all in on the transfer portal, but stands strong in his conviction. The Huskers are wanting to build a family, and a group that trusts each other. A group that when down in the fourth quarter, when talent is equal and when the players are exhausted they will want to truly fight for the man next to them. This cannot be achieved with one and…

All Big Ten are words that havent been spoken much in Lincoln over the last decade. And in a new look Big Ten where if you receive all conference honors you will most likely be receiving All American votes, do the Cornhuskers have anyone on the watchlist? From receivers to linebackers there is a very good possibility Nebraska lands at least one player on that list. Starting out on offense, the Wake Forest transfer and current standout in spring camp Jahmal Banks is someone who Nebraska’s quarterback room could lean on heavily as a safety blanket. Standing at 6 ‘4…

Spring is here and all eyes are on practice and the upcoming Spring Game. Commotion and hype drawing our attention to the current roster has not stopped this Rhule led coaching staff from keeping one eye on next years’ recruiting class. Rhule and company are aiming to bring in a Top 10 recruiting class in 2025, which is something the Huskers have not been able to accomplish since 2007 and before that you will need to go back to the 90’s to find a top ten class calling the Cornhusker State home. Signing a major recruit early on in the…

In 2023 we saw an offense that was controlled by the parts of the sum and not the sum of its parts. While we saw flashes of an explosive run game, there was not the ability for Nebraska to be able to maintain that run game at a level needed to win consistently due to the lack of an air attack. Even in battle, all of our greatest military generals understand the need for a distraction or a slide of hand. After all, it is of importance to keep defenses honest and guessing. Most teams this past season were able…

Spring in Nebraska may not be able to make up its mind, but the Huskers seem to know exactly what direction they want to head this during spring practice. With over fifty percent of the roster being underclassmen Matt Rhule has his guys and a direction to take them. As Husker fans we have grown accustomed over the past few years to losing games in a close manner. With double digit games in the last two years being within a touchdown and most of those being by 3 points or less, Nebraska has developed a “Chasing 3” motto this off…

The Cornhusker staff is fired up about the new hire at AD. The fans seem to be unsure of who he is. But one thing is for sure, the impact he has already had on college athletics is immense. On Wednesday the University announced its surprise hire of now former Washington Huskies Athletic Director Troy Dannen. Seemingly four factors played into the new AD coming to Nebraska. Getting back to the midwest, Dannen and his wife are originally from Iowa and the move back closer to home seemed fitting for the new AD and his family. Monetary stability among the…

Husker Coach Matt Rhule was “shocked” along with the entire fanbase with the announcement of former Huskers Athletic Director Trerv Alberts’ departure. The surprise however does come with the Huskers women’s and men’s basketball teams taking on former Huskers AD Trev Alberts new school in Texas A&M this upcoming weekend in the NCAA basketball tournament, almost as if it was fate. As for Alberts’ replacement, I do believe he currently resides in the state of Kansas. Both Kansas and Kansas State have made huge strides on the football field these past handful of years, with Kansas State winning the Big…

The news coming out of Lincoln has been much awaited but not as readily available as we would have thought, due to the entire country talking about the true freshman who is favored to start for the Huskers this year. Dylan Raiola, the highest ranked quarterback to ever play a game wearing the block “N”, has not made many waves in the news cycle this offseason since his decommitment from Georgia, and commitment to Nebraska. Many interviews have coaches stating Raiola’s quiet transition into a collegiate quarterback. Bringing up his leadership and work ethic in quotes from Coach Rhule…

As we inch closer to spring practice for the 2024 season I sit and think of units that are going to make a difference this season, the defensive line’s potential tends to play on a loop in my head. From the obvious names such as Ty Robinson and Nash Hutmacher to younger potential 2024 impact players like Princewill Umanmielen who had 22 tackles last year and only started 1 game to Cam Leindhart who racked up 3 sacks last year as a true freshman but showed a massive upside. Let’s take a look at this group and see where they…
