By now, most Nebraska fans are familiar with Stevie Tu'ikolovatu’s name even if they can’t pronounce it.

A minus-12 turnover margin was largely to blame for six losses by eight points or less. If Nebraska eliminates some of the turnovers, improving its win total by a couple of games and contending for the Big Ten West isn’t out of the question. The offense...

Tackling Misconceptions About Mike Riley's Nebraska Offense

By Brandon Cavanaugh, 1 year 1 month ago
Hidden inside Nebraska’s 2015 6-7 record is the belief that Mike Riley’s offense can’t get the job done — period. The term “pro style” doesn’t play well in some areas of Husker Nation. Everywhere Cornhusker fans gather, a familiar paraphrase these days is “you can’t pass 40 times and win!” I’m going to prove those Big Red backers...

Ranking the Big Ten's Quarterbacks for 2016

By Steven Lassan, 1 year 1 month ago
The quarterback position in the Big Ten is filled with uncertainty in 2016. Ohio State’s J.T. Barrett and Iowa’s C.J. Beathard are easily the league’s top options, but the question marks begin at No. 3.

By Steven Lassan, 1 year 1 month ago
Predicting which freshmen will play or make an impact on any given season is no easy assignment.

With the 2016 season just a few months away, it’s...
