NebraskaWe can add another game to the schedule that had a N/A next to it as it looks like the New Mexico State Aggies are going to be coming to Lincoln for a game in 2008.

New Mexico State head football coach Hal Mumme said Thursday evening the Aggies will make roughly $800,000 by competing against the Cornhuskers. Nebraska is 2-0 all-time vs. NMSU, but the two teams haven’t played since 1982.

Some other rumors for games in 2008 are Idaho and Northern Iowa.  All games are expected to be played in Lincoln.

NebraskaThe Nebraska Football team has had it’s first injuries of the spring as cornerback Zach Bowman and running back Kenny Wilson have came down with injuries.

Bowman who isn’t in full contact in practices while he still rehabs the knee that had the ACL tear, injured his other knee when it hit with another players knee during practice.  Early reports are saying it could be a ruptured the patellar tendon which could sideline him from 4-6 months.  Right now it is too hard to tell, but don’t expect him back at full speed for awhile.  It’s bad news as the Huskers really need Bowman to be a lockdown corner and shutout the opposing teams best receiver.

Kenny Wilson actually broke his leg while moving a tv.  He was already out of spring practice due to a bone infection but now he will be lost for the entire upcoming season.  Coach Callahan said he hopes that Wilson will be able to receive a redshirt year due to the injury.

NebraskaWith a 5-3 win over Northern Colorado on Tuesday, the Huskers set out to win another one over the Bears on Wednesday. They did just that with a awesome pitching of Drew Bowman. Bowman pitched six innings and allowed only three hits. He was helped by the bat of Andy Gerch who started a big first inning for the Big Red with a two run single. Both Gerch and Ryan Wehrle had two hits in the game. The Husker used the errors by the Bears and went on to take the series and win the game 4-1.

This Huskers team has disappointing as of late, but mid-week wins like this is a good moral boost for the team. They head into one of the biggest series of the year this weekend when they travel to College Station, Texas to take on the Aggies of Texas A&M. The 26th ranked Huskers will take on 18th ranked Aggies on Friday, and th game will be televised on Time Warner ch. 102/ Cox Cable ch.2

Nebraska coach Doc Sadler announced Tuesday that he has granted requests by sophomores Kyle Marks and Jamel White to be released from their scholarships at the end of the academic year.

“I talked with Kyle recently and he informed me that he wants to be closer to home,” Sadler said. “I feel like sometimes you have to make decisions about what is best for a program, and after visiting with Jamel, he and I came to a mutual agreement that it would be best if he moved on. I wish both of them the best.”

A native of Riviera Beach, Fla., Marks finished the season playing in 18 games while averaging 2.0 points and 1.1 rebounds per game.

White, a native of Brooklyn, N.Y., played in 22 games, including 16 starts, before being suspended for the remainder of the season on Feb. 11. He had averaged 9.3 points and 2.4 assists per game to that point.

NebraskaYesterday the University of Nebraska and Doc Sadler both said that he would not be headed to Arkansas to coach the Razorbacks.  It is rumored that Texas A&M’s Billy Gillispie will be taking the job.  Gillispie and Sadler are very good friends and that could be a reason why Sadler decided to turn down the job.  I’m suprised that Doc didn’t look into somemore considering he is from Arkasnsas and a graduate from the college, and also was an assistant coach there.

Well we know how well Doc Sadler is committed to this Huskers program and that is huge!  We can only hope that the Huskers will be playing in the big tournament in a few years.

NebraskaThe Nebraska Football team continued on with their spring practices today.  The biggest change that everyone is talking about is Major Culbert who is working out at running back once again.  I don’t like the idea of a player switching back and forth, especially one who doesn’t have much playing time under their belt.  Hopefully they will stick Culbert back in the secondary or atleast let him return some kicks etc.

Also on the defensive side on the ball, it is going to come down to the final week of practices until we find out if Larry Asante or Ricky Thenarse will be the starter.  Both players are playing well, and both love to hit hard so whichever one gets the spot for the Huskers will be fun to watch.

The Huskers will practice next on Wednesday, the fifth scheduled workout of spring camp, as the Huskers continue to build toward the April 14 Red-White Spring Game at Memorial Stadium.

NebraskaDid the Huskers get a new supply of bats overnight or something?  After playing two terrible games against the Missouri Tigers the past two days, the Huskers were finally able to to win a game today.

Jeff Tezak drove in six runs as part of Nebraska’s 12-run sixth inning, as the No. 26 Husker baseball team posted a 16-1 victory over Missouri Sunday afternoon.

Tezak, who went 3-for-5 and scored twice, broke open a 4-1 game with a grand slam to left off reliever Brant Combs before driving in two more runs later in the inning with an RBI double, as Nebraska (13-9, 2-4 Big 12) had 10 hits off four Missouri pitchers and sent 16 hitters to the plate. The 12-run inning was NU’s highest single-inning total since 1999.

Johnny Dorn improved to 4-1 on the season pitching seven strong innings.  He had nine strikeouts and only two walks so his command was pretty good and he got out of the tough jams without allowing many runs.

Up next for the Huskers is a two game series with Northern Colorado that begins Tuesday night in Lincoln.  You should try to make it out and catch the Huskers in action!

NebraskaThe Nebraska Baseball team just can’t catch a break right now.  It is either the offense or the pitching staff has a good day but both never on the same day it seems like.

The first game of the series went to the Missouri Tigers as they beat the Huskers 5-1 in extra innings.  This Nebraska Baseball team better get their heads out of their you know what if they want to make any run at a regional/super regional this year.  Right now the offense can’t do anything, the pitching staff is starting to come around but you can’t win games if you don’t score runs!

Tony Watson pitched 10 strong innings and only allowed that one run.  He didn’t have a problem throwing 10 innings as his pitch count ended at 130 which isn’t too shabby.  You just don’t want to have Watson throw that many innings every game.

NebraskaThe Husker pitching staff got back on track today as they only allowed three hits on their way to a 8-0 victory over Western Illinois.

Jake Opitz led the way for the Husker offense as he collected three hits including his third homerun of the season.

Drew Bowman ran his record to 3-0 on the young season as he dominated the Leathernecks all afternoon.  Relivers Luke Wertz, Zach Herr, and Thad Weber finished out the game on the mound and were very impressive.  Hopefully the pitching staff can continue this into their weekend series against Missouri.

NebraskaIt’s time for the Husker Football team to get back out on the field and go through their spring practices and it all begins today.  Today is the first of 15 practices leading up to the spring game on April 14th.

One big question heading into the spring practices is how well Sam Keller will lead the team after taking over for Zac Taylor.  I keep reading and hearing about Coach Callahan not naming a #1 starter until the week before the first game against Nevada, but we all know that Sam Keller will be the #1 QB when it comes down to it.  Sure Ganz as more time in Callahan’s version of the West Coast Offense but Keller is a Heisman contender who can get the ball where he wants it and when it needs to be there.  He is a leader, and he is going to lead this Huskers team right into the Big 12 Championship game!

On the defensive side of the ball look for some young players like Suh, Steinkuler, Potter and Sievers to really push for some playingtime.  Suh will be starting no questions asked, and I would say the same for Steinkuler and Potter.  Time will tell how well these players do, but they are going to be needed on the D-Line.

The Linebackers are going to be in some fierce competitions for starting positions.  I will expect Rudd and Octavien to win their spots. In the secondary, Zach Bowman will be back to take over at corner, and I expect Courtney Grixby will still be playing on the other corner, although Andre Jones will be right there with him.  Players like Thenarse and newcomer Larry Asante will get plenty of playing time in the secondary along with Tierre Green at safty.

It will be exciting to see how well the team does through spring ball, and hope to god that we don’t have any injuries that come out of it!
