NebraskaThe Nebraska volleyball team opens the 2006 season this week with four matches, beginning Tuesday evening against No. 20 San Diego. First serve at a sold-out Nebraska Coliseum (4,030 capacity) is set for 7 p.m. and the match will be carried across the state on the Pinnacle Sports Network, including B107.3 FM in Lincoln, and on the Internet at Huskers.com

The Huskers find themselves in a familiar position to begin the season, as the Huskers are ranked first in the CSTV/AVCA Preseason Coaches Poll. It marks the third time that Nebraska has opened the season in that spot (also 2001 and 2005).

The Huskers will have a vastly different lineup than the one that took the court at the end of last season. The Huskers must replace a trio of All-Americans, middle blocker Melissa Elmer and outside hitters Christina Houghtelling and Jennifer Saleaumua. Houghtelling underwent season-ending surgery in July and will redshirt this fall. Her absence sparked NU’s shift to the 5-1 offense. Despite the losses, NU returns five of its top eight players from last season, including two-time All-American Sarah Pavan and Big 12 Freshman of the Year Jordan Larson.

Sek HenryA very talented guard from Lynwood, Calif., has signed scholarship papers to play for the Nebraska Mens Basketball Team this year.  Sek Henry is enrolled in classes already and cleared by the NCAA which is a good thing coming from a prep school.

The 6-3, 180-pound Henry played last season at The Patterson School in North Carolina, where he helped the team to a 37-3 record under Coach Chris Chaney. Henry, who was rated as one of the nation’s best prep school combo guards by recruiting analyst Van Coleman, played alongside more than a dozen Division I scholarship signees at Patterson. Dave Telep of Scout.com ranked Henry No. 24 nationally among postgraduate players entering last season. The lefty averaged 14 points and four assists per game last year, including a season-high 51 points in a contest. He is considered a solid outside shooter who can score in bunches and is a good defender in the backcourt.

Henry originally signed with Arizona State for the 2005-06 season before attending Patterson School . He was also recruited by UNLV, Washington, San Diego State and USC out of high school, among others.

NebraskaThe football team has lost one of its reserve offensive linemen.  Brock Pasteur has decided to leave the program and will be looking for more playing time at another program. Pasteur was going to be 2nd team at best, but most likely on the third offensive line team.  We hope Mr. Pasteur well in his future, as long as it isn’t against the Huskers :)

GO BIG RED!

HuskersIt is now official as Sam Keller has signed his scholarship papers at the University of Nebraska.  It came down the Huskers and those pesky Sooners of Oklahoma.  Sam flew into Omaha today, and Tim Cassidy picked him up at the airport.  When Keller was interviewed at the airport, he said it wasn’t official, that he had some things to take care of once he got to Lincoln.

After practice, Coach Callahan was finally able to comment on Keller, and he welcomed him to the team and said he was a great addition.  Sam will use his redshirt this year and be available in 2007 and will for sure be the starter.  He has 2 years to play 1.

Welcome to Husker Nation Mr. Keller!

Sam Keller is closer to coming to the University of Nebraska today has the addmissions office has filed his paper work and he is enrolled in school.  He has not actually attended a class yet though.  Basically Sam just has his paper work done at the school if he does in fact choose the Huskers.  Reports are saying it could be official this afternoon.  Keller is down to Nebraska and Oklahoma and is supposed to be visiting both of the schools today.

Great news from Lincoln yesterday, both Tony Watson and Ryan Wehrle were in classes and that means they will come back for another season with the Huskers and not sign professional contracts with the Reds and Orioles.

Watson and Wehrle will be back and provide the leadership that the baseball team is going to need to make their run for Omaha.  Glad to see they wanted to remain in Lincoln for another year and not sign to go pro!  I see it paying off bigtime for both of them, especially Watson who tore up the Cape Cod league this summer.  Look for him to be drafed in the first three rounds of the next M.L.B. draft!

NebraskaSam Keller, Arizona State’s starting quarterback from last years team is possibly looking to transfer to Nebraska after being told he can look at other schools.  Keller had been told he was the starter this year for the Sun Devils but coach Dirk Koetter then named Rudy Carpenter as the starter.  Rumors are going around that players complained when Keller was named the starter and Carpenter had a closed meeting where it was talked about and he decided to name Carpenter the starter instead of Keller.

Keller does have a redshirt that he could use up if this year if he transfers to a Division 1 school and then be eligibile to play in the 2007 season.  He could provide experience next year for the Huskers if he does choose and is allowed to become part of the Husker football team.

NebraskaYesterday Coach Bill Callahan announced the three team captains for the 2006 football team.  Leading they way is quarterback Zac Taylor, defensive end Adam Carriker, and safety Brandon Rigoni.  The voting was done by the senior players only. 

Rigoni is a suprise selection, but he hard nosed player which gives it is all every play of the game and is being rewarded for that by being named a captain.  Rigoni was also awarded a scholarship as fall practice began so he has to be sky high right now!
