Nebraska Football: 5 Leaders That Need to Step Up Exiting Spring Football

By Brandon Cavanaugh, 1 month 2 weeks ago
One thing that no college football prognosticator can properly quantify is leadership. It can be the difference between winning and losing when all things are equal between two teams.

By Brandon Cavanaugh, 1 month 2 weeks ago
Following consecutive 4-8 seasons, Scott Frost is prepped to see a major rebound in year two at the helm of the Nebraska football program.

Nebraska Football: Why Tanner Farmer is the Biggest Hole for the Cornhuskers' Offense to Fill

By Brandon Cavanaugh, 2 months 1 week ago
It may seem blasphemous to suggest that Devine Ozigbo or Stanley Morgan Jr. aren’t the obvious choices to hold the mantle of Nebraska's 2018 offensive MVP. How can you possibly deny the first 1,000-yard running back in four years or the first 1,000-yard receiver in school history that honor, right? This is where we get into the value of offensive linemen.   Big Red fans are...

Nebraska Football: What One Week of Spring Football Has Taught Us

By Brandon Cavanaugh, 2 months 1 week ago
Year One for Scott Forst back in Lincoln can be best be described as a whirlwind, as he went from simultaneously coaching UCF to a 2018 Peach Bowl win over Auburn straight into recruiting for Nebraska. Growing pains followed for him and the Cornhuskers, but the important takeaway from last season is that his culture has taken root within the program and, in his words, guys know where to go....

The conference is home to three of the elite programs in college football in Ohio State, Michigan and Penn State, but you can make a strong argument that middle and lower tiers of the league lag behind several of other Power 5 leagues.    Ranking the jobs for every FBS conference is no easy task. After all, the...
