By Chip Minnich, 11 months 3 weeks ago
The 2016 NFL Scouting Combine has come and gone, with several Ohio State players reportedly impressing various NFL general managers, coaches and scouts. While the Combine is the not the last opportunity to impress NFL decision-makers before the draft, the conventional wisdom is that it is important to make a strong first impression, if at all possible. Among the impressive performers was...

By Mike Bainbridge, 12 months 3 hours ago
The 2015 version of the Michigan Wolverines surprised many by winning 10 games in Jim Harbaugh’s first year at the helm, including a blowout 41-7 victory over Florida in the Citrus Bowl on New Year’s Day. Because of last season’s success, the 2016 squad faces real expectations of not only competing in the Big Ten East with rivals Michigan State and Ohio State, but also...

Nebraska Cornhuskers 2016 Spring Practice Positional Preview: Defensive Backs

By Brandon Cavanaugh, 12 months 1 day ago
There are 128 teams in the FBS level of college football. All but seven had better pass defense rankings than Nebraska (ranked No. 122) in 2015. The Cornhuskers' secondary was a unit that looked like it was playing with soap attached to their shoes, to be sure. However, thanks to an influx of talent and a year of taking lumps, the Blackshirts’ back end will likely be overlooked...

By Brandon Cavanaugh, 12 months 2 days ago
It’s not National Signing Day for recruitniks, but it’s up there. I speak of the annual NFL Scouting Combine which looks like half Westminster Dog Show-half meat market. Amazingly there will be plenty of live-tweeting about it and wouldn’t you know, four Nebraska Cornhuskers have been invited to display their wares.   Andy Janovich, FullbackJanovich was done a severe...

Nebraska Cornhuskers 2016 Spring Practice Positional Preview: Running Backs

By Brandon Cavanaugh, 12 months 3 days ago
Nobody expected transitioning from the Ameer Abdullah era to be easy and it most certainly wasn’t. Nebraska worked with what it had, and fortunately quarterback Tommy Armstrong had some skilled feet to take some of the burden off of the backs. However, he was a mere 44 yards behind No. 2 on the rushing list. 2016 looks to offer plenty of uncertainty in the first few games as well...

The NFL Scouting Combine takes place in Indianapolis from Feb. 23-29. While schools from all around the country will be sending representatives to the Combine, no other school is more widely represented than the Ohio State Buckeyes. Ohio State will be sending 14 players to this event, the most of any school in the history of the Combine.

Dallas Cowboys’ Randy Gregory: Too Spoiled by the Nebraska Program He Left

By Brandon Cavanaugh, 12 months 4 days ago
It’s hard to feel bad for former Nebraska Cornhusker and current Dallas Cowboy Randy Gregory. His recent actions are nothing new and they may end his NFL career sooner rather than later. Last Friday, the NFL passed down a four-game suspension for Gregory’s violation of the league’s substance abuse policy after failing three tests. The second-year player will miss the first...

Nebraska Cornhuskers 2016 Spring Practice Positional Preview: Quarterbacks

By Brandon Cavanaugh, 1 year 2 days ago
A quarterback battle as intense as the one about to start boiling in Lincoln hasn’t been seen since eventual Heisman Trophy winner Eric Crouch went toe-to-toe with Bobby Newcombe. Crouch obviously won that fight, but the stage is set for a clash that likely goes to fall camp (and maybe beyond). 2015 SummaryIf there was any position thinner than Nebraska’s linebacker corps last...

College Football's Top 25 Impact JUCO Transfers for 2016

By Steven Lassan, 1 year 3 days ago
Junior college prospects are some of the biggest wildcards in a recruiting class for college football teams. Not every program taps into the junior college ranks for options, but immediate help can be found at this level. While junior college recruits often help right away, some are more of a project and can take half (or more) of a season to develop. Additionally, junior college recruits are...

Grading College Football's Head Coach Hires for 2016

By Steven Lassan, 1 year 4 days ago
The 2015-16 college football coaching carousel was one of the busiest in recent memory. There were plenty of surprises along the way, including Steve Spurrier’s sudden retirement in October, the bizarre separation between USC and Steve Sarkisian, Todd Monken’s late departure to the NFL, Lovie Smith's late hire at Illinois and Bronco Mendenhall’s decision to leave BYU for...
