By Steven Lassan, 3 weeks 1 day ago
With the 2019 NFL Draft officially in the books, it’s time to look back and see which of college football’s biggest stars went undrafted. Whether it was concerns about size, overall talent, how a player will transition from scheme or handle the jump to the NFL, a handful of stars from the previous college football season did not hear their name called over the three-day event...

By Brandon Cavanaugh, 3 weeks 1 day ago
For the first time since 1962, the Nebraska Cornhuskers were not represented during the NFL draft. This isn’t incredibly shocking considering the Big Red's back-to-back 4-8 records and administrative upheaval over that time. Rather, it's an appropriate representation of just how big of a project Scott Frost walked into and how much he has to accomplish in order to lead Nebraska...

By Athlon Sports, 3 weeks 1 day ago
The ink on the 2019 NFL Draft is barely dry but some of the attention has already shifted to next year's event. And while that partly may due to the anticipation of the draft taking place in Las Vegas, the players projected to headline the 2020 edition have a little something to do with this as well.   Defense may have dominated the 2019 draft, with seven of the top 10 picks coming...

Wisconsin Football: Badgers’ 2019 Schedule Analysis

By Kevin McGuire, 3 weeks 4 days ago
Wisconsin may have been knocked off the throne of the Big Ten West last season by Northwestern, but the Badgers are still expected to be among the top contenders for the division once again in 2019. The schedule, however, doesn’t throw Wisconsin too many favors so the Badgers will certainly have to claw and earn their way back to Indianapolis for a shot at a Big Ten championship this fall...

Nebraska Football: History Shows Balance Between Frost and Chinander Would Mean Major Rebound in 2019

By Brandon Cavanaugh, 3 weeks 6 days ago
Just over a year ago, we examined how Nebraska defensive coordinator Erik Chinander would approach a new Blackshirts defense with a goal of efficiency. The 3-4 scheme of past years remains, but the ultimate objective isn't keeping opponents under a certain number of yards or points. Admirable goals, both, but unnecessary today. Causing the opponent to get as little out of their drives as...

Nebraska Football: Projecting Where Cornhuskers Will Go in the 2019 NFL Draft

By Brandon Cavanaugh, 4 weeks 1 day ago
When the official Nebraska football Twitter account uses its "ProBigRed" hashtag, those behind the keyboard do so with authority. Nebraska has had at least one player selected in the NFL draft over the past 57 years and looks to extend that streak during this week's annual player selection meeting. Big Red backers shouldn't have to wait as long as last year when quarterback...

This also was the first spring practice session to be held at Ryan Fieldhouse, which opened last summer.

Nebraska Football: Why Some Cornhuskers Fans Won't Ever Fully Embrace Scott Frost's Offense

By Brandon Cavanaugh, 1 month 4 days ago
If you choose to only look at Scott Frost's first-year record as Nebraska head coach, you might think that he's in over his head. Maybe he wasn't ready for the leap from a Group of 5 program to the big leagues after all. However, Frost accomplished more than what you'll read on any stat sheet. This spring, you see an even more confident Cornhuskers team than the one that dug down...

Michigan Football: Wolverines' 2019 Schedule Analysis

By Mike Bainbridge, 1 month 6 days ago
The Michigan Wolverines finished the 2018 season in all-too-familiar territory as they were run out of the stadium in the finale against Ohio State, and then had a dreadful performance in the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl against Florida in a 41-15 blowout defeat.   If Michigan is to finally break through in 2019 and make its first appearance in the Big Ten Championship Game, the Wolverines will...

By Brandon Cavanaugh, 1 month 1 week ago
For the second straight year, Memorial Stadium will be sold out on Saturday to watch Nebraska scrimmage — the last time Husker fans will see anything resembling real football until late August. There are obvious questions with need-to-know answers. How does Adrian Martinez look? Is Brody Belt legit? Is the defensive front as good as advertised or is the offensive line that discombobulated...
