NebraskaWhat another terrible game by the Nebraska Basketball team.  In front of a packed house and Big-Monday ESPN the Huskers got demolished by the Kansas Jayhawks.  The Huskers went 13 straight minutes without scoring in the first half as they were beat right from the beginning.

The second half was a little better as the Huskers outscored the Jayhawks 40-33.  But of course it wasn’t near enough to overtake the Jayhawks after their great first half of shotting.

Freshman Ryan Anderson led the Huskers with a career high 19 points.  He was 6 for 9 from three point land.  Anderson is one bright spot for this team right now, hopefully he will be able to go out there and win some ballgames for the Huskers.

NebraskaAs we mentioned in the Norvell heading to UCLA article, Shawn Watson was rumored to become the new Huskers Football Offensive Coordinator.  Well that rumor is now the truth as Head Coach Bill Callahan named Watson the OC yesterday.  Watson will also take over as the quarterbacks coach.

Watson brings an impressive set of credentials to the offensive coordinator position. Before joining Callahan’s staff, Watson spent seven seasons on the coaching staff, including the final six years as the Buffs’ offensive coordinator. Like Nebraska, Colorado implemented a West Coast offensive system in Boulder and Watson helped the Buffs to four Big 12 North Division titles in his final five seasons.

It will be exiting to see how Watson does in the play calling and how well he reacts to the players etc.  I’m pretty sure he will do a great job.  He has plently of returning players on the offensive side of the ball to make a lot of noise this next season.

NebraskaDoc Sadler cannot be happy with how the team played last night at Kansas State.  The Huskers were held to 36.7% shooting and lost the game 61-45.  A completely different game then they played just a few nights ago against Texas when they almost upset the Longhorns in Lincoln.

The defense played a really good game, but it was the offense that couldn’t get their game going.  They were only 20% from 3 point land, and only hit 41% of their free throws.  Maric was the leading scorer for the Huskers and he only finished with 10 points.

Up next for the Huskers will be a very tough home game against the Kansas JayHawks on Monday Night.  It will be shown on ESPN at 8 p.m.  There are still tickets available so make sure you get out there and support the Huskers!

NebraskaToday, the Nebraska Football team lost their offensive coordinator as Jay Norvell has decided to take the same job with the UCLA Bruins.  Norvell had been with the Huskers the past three season and helped integrate the West Coast Offense that the Huskers use.

Early reports are that Coach Callahan expects to offer the offensive coordinator’s job to tight-end coach Shawn Watson.  Watson served as the OC while he was at Colorado.

NebraskaWell Nebraska just can’t beat Texas at anything with Mens sports so far this year.  Coming up just short in football, and last night just short in basketball.  The Longhorns defeated the Huskers 62-61 in front of 10,000+ fans at the Devaney Center.

Freshman standout Kevin Durant lead the Longhorns with 26 points, but didn’t score in the last 11 minutes of the game.  But it was the cold shooting Huskers in the second half that couldn’t hold onto their one and two points leads they had in the second half.

Senior Marcus Perry lead the Huskers with 17 points and Aleks Maric helped out with 15 points. 

It’s a tough loss as the Huskers could have got a win but wasn’t able to get that extra basket or defensive stop that they needed to late in the second half. Hopefully the team can build on this and win their next game on Saturday when they go on the road to face Kansas State.

NebraskaWell it was a shok to see that Chris Perry had verbally comitted to the Huskers a few weeks ago.  Well now, Perry is verbally comitting back to his original choice, the Miami Hurricanes.  He said his heart never left Miami, and that is where he has wanted to goto all along, but he was being pressured my friends and family to goto Nebraska.

I’m guess that his family and friends know that Nebraska is much safer and a lot less distraction then Miami.  He is following his heart and you can’t fault him for that.  Reports that I have read, say that Perry informed the Husker coaches and said it was better to do this now, then join the Huskers and end up transferring.

It’s a big loss for the Huskers, as Perry would have been a good DT prospect, but the show goes on and hopefully we don’t lose anyone else from this class.  Signing day is a few weeks away, lets hold on tight!

NebraskaWhat a great performance by the Nebraska Basketball team last night as they defeated the Colorado Buffaloes 71-50 behind a huge game from Aleks Maric.

After the blowout loss against Oklahoma earlier this week, Coach Sadler implemented a new rule during his 5:30 am practice.  No one shoots a wide open three unles Maric has touched the ball.  So expect to see Maric touch the ball every time down the court lol.  The senior finished with 28 points in the game on only 12 shots.

Next up for the Huskers is a tough game with the Texas Longhorns on Wednesday night.

NebraskaThe Nebraska Basketball team played a decent first half of basketball last night, but it was the second half where they fell apart.  The Sooners used a 13-0 run in the second half to pull away and defeat the Huskers 70-53 in Norman last night. With the loss, the Huskers fell to 11-5 on the year and 0-2 in Big 12 play while the Sooners improved to 10-6 on the year and 2-2 in conference action.

The Huskers return to action on Saturday, Jan. 20, when NU plays host to the Colorado Buffaloes at the Bob Devaney Sports Center. The game, which will tip off at 5 p.m. and can be seen on ESPN Plus and ESPNU, will be Nebraska’s Big 12 Conference home opener and the first of a two-game home stand, as nationally ranked Texas comes to the Devaney Center next week on Wednesday, Jan. 24.

NebraskaIt is finally official, Brandon Jackson is forgoing his senior year and declaring for the NFL Draft.

The 5-foot-11, 210 pound Jackson had 989 yards rushing and 313 yards receiving to finish with team-high 10 touchdowns en route to an All-Big 12 season in 2006.

Jackson had this to say: “I want to thank Coach Callahan and the rest of the coaching staff for giving me the opportunity to play Division I football at Nebraska and helping make me a better player. I have had a great three years there and this has been a hard decision to make because I have always tried to put the team first. I also want to thank the athletic administration and especially my academic advisors, Dennis (Leblanc) and Kim (Schellpeper) for helping me out along the way. I will come back to Nebraska and finish my degree.

“Finally, I want to thank the Nebraska fans for cheering me on and being the best fans in America. I will be a Husker for life and I hope to represent Nebraska in a great way in the National Football League.”

With Jackson moving onto the NFL, the Huskers running back group will be headlined by Marlon Lucky, Cody Gleen, and Kenny Wilson.  Incoming freshman Quentin Castille will also make some noise in a fall camp to get some playing time as a true freshman.

Good luck in the NFL Brandon, we are all wishing you the best!

NebraskaAfter being delayed Friday because of winter weather conditions, the Oklahoma State men’s basketball team was still unable to leave Oklahoma City early Saturday morning. The delay has forced the tipoff time for tonight’s OSU-Nebraska basketball game to be moved back to 7 p.m.

We encourage all fans to be safe, and make it to the game if possible.  Get out there and support the Huskers as they have their first Big 12 Conference game at home.  This would be a good win for the program if the Huskers can pull it off.

 

*****THIS GAME HAS NOW BEEN POSTPONED, AND WILL BE MADE UP AT A LATER TIME*****
