NebraskaWe have learned that Justin Tomerlin has been kicked off the Nebraska Football team today for violating team rules.  Since it is a team rule issue we will probably not hear an offiicial statement from Coach Callahan other then he was kicked off the team.

What a former four star busty Tomerlin was.  He had the body to be a good tight end but I’m wondering if he ever had the work ethic to play D1 football?

NebraskaI’m really lost for words as I try to write this blog article about the Nebraska – Oklahoma State game yesterday.  The coaching staff and the players looked completely lost in the second half yesterday as the Cowboys ran and passed all over the defense.  On offense, the Huskers couldn’t do anything in the second half which was suprising how they played in the first half.

The Huskers got out to a great start in the game, as Brandon Jackson ran all over the Cowboy defense as he racked up over 100 yards in the first half.  Most of the yardage came in the first quarter, as Jackson for some reason only two carries int he second quarter.  Besides Jackson, Marlon Lucky was the only other running back to really see action during the game.  He was only valuable on middle screen plays though and didn’t provide that much offense for the team.

The offense and defensive lines played one of their worst games of the year for sure.  The offensive line could not handle the Cowboy blitzes as Zac Taylor was under pressure all day long.  When he did have time he was able to connect with Maurice Purify but that was not as often as they needed.  I sure hope Kurt Mann get healthy quick, and is back starting at Center so he can call out the line movements and blitze protection for the team. 

On defense, oh where do I begin?  Do I begin with Coach Cozgrove who called a shitty game in the second half? It didn’t even seem we had linebackers playing yesterday as the OSU running backs were either being tackled by the safties, or ran down from behind by the corners.  It was pretty damn terrible.  There is absolutely no depth at linebacker due to injuries and it is really showing at this point in the season.

On the special teams, not having a kicker that can kick it into the end zone or goal is really hurting the teams.  So many times, the special teams have given the opposing team great field position to start their drives it puts the defense in tough situations.  When was the last time Nebraska missed two extra points in one game?  I don’t even know the answer to that, but the kicking and kicking protection has got to improve.

I’ll have a write up about the Nebraska – Missouri game in a few days.  So far I do know that it will be on ABC regional at 12 eastern time.

NebraskaOmaha Westside Junior running back Collins Okafor has verbally committed to the Nebraska Football program this afternoon.  Nebraska was the first to offer the big running back from Omaha a few weeks ago.  Okafor attended the game on Saturday against Texas and was blown away.

When Okafor was first offered, the word on the street was that Michigan was his team and he wanted to be a Wolverine but that sure changed quick!  He is a bigtime get for the Huskers in the 2008 class.

Welcome the Husker Family Collins, can’t wait to see you in the Big Red Uniform!

NebraskaThe Nebraska Football team lost a heartbreaker to Texas on Saturday but it is now time to move onto Oklahoma State as the Huskers and Cowboys will battle it out this Saturday afternoon in Stillwater.

It is the first time since 2002 that the Huskers and Cowboys have played so expect to see a great game by both teams.  Oklahoma State comes into the game with a 4-3 overall record and 1-2 in the Big 12.  Oklahoma State ranks 75th nationally in rushing defense (144.57 YPG) and 59th in passing defense (197 YPG). The Cowboys are 68th in total defense (341.57 YPG) and 62nd in scoring defense (22.29).

On offense the Cowboys are lead by third year sophomore Bobby Reid who is expected to play despite having a concussion in the Texas A&M game.  Reid completes 59% of his passes and as thrown for 1387 yards including 17 touchdowns and six interceptions.

The Cowboys do run the ball pretty well also, as a team they are averaging a little over 200 yards per game.  You will see three different running backs get some carries on Saturday.

The Cowboy’s receivers are pretty damn good too, expect to see Adarius Bowman (6-4, 215) and senior D’Juan Woods (6-1, 210) to get plenty of balls thrown to them.

NebraskaAnother Nebraska Football game on TV!  We all expected this game to be on tv for sure, it is just a matter of what time slot the folks at ABC decide to put the game on.  It will be either 11am or 7pm, they have to choose with this game and the Oklahoma and Texas A&M.

Hopefully ABC chooses the Nebraska / Missouri game for the 7pm game so more recruits can make their way to the game.  It is hard to get recruits to the game intime for those early kickoffs.

NebraskaOne of nine official recruiting visitors to watch Nebraska’s 22-20 loss to Texas at Memorial Stadium Saturday, has accepted an NU scholarship offer.  Defensive end Patrick Grant from Florida verbally committed to the Huskers this past weekend.  He enjoyed everything about the weekend, the campus, Lincoln, and of course the football team.

He picked NU over offers from Auburn, Arizona State, Colorado and North Carolina State, among others.

NebraskaWow, what a great game it was to watch on Saturday.  Nebraska took the defending National Champions down to the wire and had there chances to pull off the upset but things just didn’t work out.

On a crucial 3rd down play with a little over two minutes remaining, Zac Taylor hit Terrance Nunn for a first down, but Nunn was then hit hard by the Texas defender and the ball popped out.  Texas recovered and was able to drive down inside the 20 before kicking a field goal to go up by two points.

Nebraska and Taylor still had a chance with two hail mary plays and came very close to pulling the upset again.  The football gods just weren’t looking down on the Huskers today but the team played balls to the walls and really gave it there best shot.  It was so fun watching the game, seeing the players fly around and giving the Longhorns their best shot. 

You can’t put all the blame on Nunn, there were other mistakes in the game that hurt the Huskers.  As long as Nebraska wins their Big 12 games the rest of the season, we would meet up with the Longhorns on a cold winter night in Kansas City and hopefully we will see another outcome!
