Nebraska Cornhuskers 2016 Spring Practice Positional Preview: Wide Receivers/Tight Ends

By Brandon Cavanaugh, 4 months 3 weeks ago
When looking back on a 6-7 season, it’s likely an exercise in futility to find an entire unit to be proud of. This isn’t the case for the Nebraska Cornhuskers. There were quite a few wide receivers and tight ends running routes and fighting their best to get — and stay — open for their quarterbacks. Fortunately, for the most part, the Big Red’s best bunch is...

By Steven Lassan, 4 months 3 weeks ago
Nebraska opens its second spring practice under coach Mike Riley hoping to build off the momentum from a 37-29 victory over UCLA in the Foster Farms Bowl. The Cornhuskers finished 6-7 in Riley’s first year, but six of the seven defeats came by eight points or less. Even with the departure of a couple of key players, there is reason for optimism in Lincoln. The Big Ten West is more...

By Brandon Cavanaugh, 4 months 4 weeks ago
When studying the 2015 Nebraska Cornhuskers' deficiencies, there’s one place you won’t find many. That would be at defensive line. NFL talent, high-motor intensity and a rising star helped the Blackshirts have one bright spot. 2015 SummaryWhile Nebraska’s pass defense was absolutely abhorrent, it was very tough to bust through the Blackshirts on the ground, as the Big...

Big Ten's Pre-Spring Top 25 Player Rankings for 2016

By Steven Lassan, 4 months 4 weeks ago
The Big Ten enters 2016 with momentum on its side. Ohio State is just a year removed from a national championship, and even with several new faces on both sides of the ball, the Buckeyes will be a factor in the College Football Playoff picture next fall. Additionally, Michigan capped a solid first season under coach Jim Harbaugh with an outstanding recruiting class. Needless to say, the arrow on...

Excellent recruiting combined with the work of coach Mike Cavanaugh is helping the Huskers’ maulers crawl back to the long-cherished title of “The Pipeline.” 2015 SummaryNebraska’s offensive line had a roller coaster ride last season, but ultimately a...

Nebraska Cornhuskers 2016 Spring Practice Positional Preview: Defensive Backs

By Brandon Cavanaugh, 5 months 5 days 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, 5 months 6 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...

5 Players Who Could Impress During the 2016 NFL Scouting Combine

By J.P. Scott, 5 months 1 week ago
It never fails. Every year, at least one player puts on a show at the NFL Scouting Combine that changes the way scouts look at him (in a good way) and subsequently boosts his draft stock. Sometimes this happens during an interview, but more often than not, it happens during one of the drills. Scouts will see something in a player they hadn't seen before, causing some franchises to rework...

Nebraska Cornhuskers 2016 Spring Practice Positional Preview: Running Backs

By Brandon Cavanaugh, 5 months 1 week 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...

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

By Brandon Cavanaugh, 5 months 1 week 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...
