Our partners over at CSTV will be broadcasting the Nebraska vs Missouri Volleymatch tomorrow night.Ã‚Â If you want something to do while all the trick or treaters are ringing the doorbell, tune it to CSTV and watch the Huskers get back on track as they take on the Tigers.
Quarterback Sam Keller will be out the rest of the season with a broken left collarbone.Ã‚Â Keller was sacked late in the fourth quarter against Texas when the injury occured.Ã‚Â There isn’t a timetable on a return at this point, so I would say it will be Joe Ganz the rest of the year behind center.
Ganz knows this play book inside and out, and should do a pretty good job.Ã‚Â Look for the offense to run some options, and for more rushing yards out of the quarterback position.Ã‚Â It should be exciting!
We wish Sam the best of luck with the recovery, and hope him all the best.
In a game where most Huskers fans were left asking, “Where has this team been all year?”, the Nebraska Cornhuskers played their best overall game of the season as they lost to Texas 28-25.Ã‚Â The Huskers had a lead heading into the 4th quarter, but that is when Jamaal Charles took over the game.
Charles ran for a career high 290 yards in the game.Ã‚Â 216 of the 290 yards came in the 4th quarter on long runs of 25, 40, and 86 yards.Ã‚Â With the Nebraska defense blitzing almost every play, all it took was Charles getting past the line and he was gone.
I liked how the defense went out and played balls out the entire game.Ã‚Â Sure they were getting tired at the end, but it was nice to see pressure on the quarterback, and players flying around all over the field.Ã‚Â They coaching staff told the players, go out there and play for yourself and make some plays and that is exactly what they did.
Marlon Lucky rushed for 111 yards on 24 carries to lead the rushing attack for the Huskers.Ã‚Â Sam Keller finished the day 23 for 35 and 298 yards along with two touchdowns to Nate Swift.Ã‚Â Keller was injured late in the 4th quarter however with a possibly broken collarbone.Ã‚Â Joe Ganz came in and passed forÃ‚Â a touchdown and 2 point conversion to bring the Huskers within three points, but the onside kick was recovered by the Lonhorns to secure the victory.
I think we are all suprised with how well the Huskers played on Saturday.Ã‚Â Will the same type of team show up when the Huskers take on the Kansas Jayhawks on Saturday.Ã‚Â Can the Huskers give the Jayhawks their first loss on the season?Ã‚Â Lets hope so!
GO BIG RED
As Husker fans the past month has not been the best.Ã‚Â From getting blown out in consecutive weeks to losing recruits, it is something that the Husker Nation is not used too.Ã‚Â As we have seen earlier this week with the de-committ of Jonas Gray, (who has now committed to Notre Dame), the football team is going to definately lose out on some recruits and they are uncertain of what will happen with the coaching staff.
Right now Blaine Gabbert and Will Compton are both looking into Missouri.Ã‚Â Which makes since, as both players are from the state of Missouri.Ã‚Â Doug Rippy and D.J. Woods are also looking at different schools.Ã‚Â They were our two players from the state of Ohio.
As you can see, this recruiting class is going to lose some players, but we are also going to gain some other ones who are putting their trust into Tom Osborne, that he will go out and hire the best available coach that the Huskers can get.
Just last night, the nations #1 defensive junior college player, Simi Kuli committed to the Nebraska Football team.Ã‚Â Kuli is a defensive end from El Camino Community College in California.Ã‚Â I’ve been reading that the final three teams in his recruiting were Texas A&M, LSU, and Nebraska.Ã‚Â Yes, he choose the Huskers over the LSU Tigers!
Lets roll with the punches and see how the recruiting class turns out, and as well with the coaching staff.Ã‚Â As we all know, there is going to be some changes made, so lets set back and see what Osborne has in mind and stay behind our program!
GO BIG RED!
Jonas Gray, the star running back from Michigan has decided to de-commit from the University of Nebraska and open up his recruiting once again.Ã‚Â He says his decision is because of Coach Callahan being on the hot seat and he doesn’t want to play for a coach that could be out of there in a year or even sooner.
Gray is listing Notre Dame, Michigan, LSU, and Nebraska has his favorites right now.Ã‚Â He is still interested in the Huskers, he just wants to see how things play out with the coaching staff.
Also, look for Blaine Gabbert to do the same once the coaching change is made.Ã‚Â I see Gabbert moving onto Missouri but I sure hope I am wrong.Ã‚Â This is what happens when you have coaches on the brink of being fired, your recruiting class doesn’t know what to do, and they have to try to make the best decisions for their future.Ã‚Â You can’t fault these guys for looking around, if I were them, I would be too.
Offensive linemen Lydon Murtha will be sidelines for the rest of the season due to a foot injury Coach Callahan said yesterday.Ã‚Â Murtha was injured on the Huskers’ first series Saturday in the 36-14 loss to Texas A&M but finished the game. Callahan said the junior would be out six to eight weeks after starting NU’s first eight games at right tackle.
I’m hearing reports that true freshman Jaivorio Burkes could possibly have his redshirt pulled off him due to all the injuries on the offensive line.Ã‚Â I’m not for this decision at all.Ã‚Â The season is already going bad, why waste the kids redshirt when you have D.J. Jones and Mike Huff who could move around on the line.
The coaching staff has already wasted plenty of redshirts that weren’t needed this year (Niles Paul), please don’t make another mistake and take Burkes redshirt off him as well.
Nebraska fans were hoping for a turn around in the 2007 season when they took on the Texas A&M Aggiest on Saturday in Lincoln but a terrible second half stopped all that hoping.Ã‚Â The Aggies outscored the Huskers 20-0 in the second half as the Huskers could not get anything going on offense.
Marlon Lucky had a career high 13 receptions for 125 yars, but only had 23 yards on eight attempts rushing the ball.Ã‚Â Quentin Castille led the team with 60 yards on nine carries.Ã‚Â Roy Helu chipped in with 39 yards on five carries.
Sam Keller had another bad day at the quarterback position.Ã‚Â He finished 26 of 44 for 275 yards and one TD (To Purify), but had several poorly thrown balls, and still isn’t getting rid of the ball when he needs too.Ã‚Â Keller is holding onto the ball way to long, and taking too many sacks.Ã‚Â He needs to get a feel for the pocket and make his reads down the field faster.
Onto the defense, there were times where they played really good, but then they would let up a big play on a third down or, on first down Texas A&M would roll off 8 yard gains which set them up perfectly for a first down on the next play.
The defense wasn’t sure who had the ball multiple times and you could tell that with all the rushing yards that Aggies had during the game.Ã‚Â Stephen McGee set career highs with 35 carries for 167 yards and Jorvorskie Lane rushed for 130 yards and four touchdowns for the Aggies.
Another big play that took a ton of momentum away from the Huskers was in the first half when Nate Swift called for a fair catch and fumbled the ball.Ã‚Â Shortly after the fumble, Lane ran off a big TD run and A&M had all the momentum once again.
It doesn’t get any easier for the Huskers next week either.Ã‚Â They will travel to Austin to face off against the Texas Longhorns.Ã‚Â Prepare for another butt whoopin Husker fans.
There will be a press conference at 5:15 centrail time where it is expected that Dr. Tom Osborne will announce the interim Athletic Department at the University of Nebraska.
We will have to see how Osborne runs the athletic department while he is control.Ã‚Â Is Coach Callahan and Coach Cozgrove the next to be let go? Time will only tell.
Rumors are spreading around like wild fire across Nebraska message boards tonight that Athletic Director Steve Pederson and some assistants have been fired.Ã‚Â I’ve heard defensive coordinator Kevin Cosgrove’s name mentioned a few times but as of right now nothing is official.Ã‚Â
As of right now, nothing if official, but stay tuned once we know for sure, we will let you know!
Steve Pederson has been fired / or stepped down as Atheltic Director at the University of Nebraska.Ã‚Â Some reports are stating that Pederson stepped down, but ESPN is reporting that he was fired.Ã‚Â Either way, the hunt is on for a new A.D. and Tom Osborne’s name is popping up atleast for an interim position.Ã‚Â Another name is Dave Rimington to think about.
Pederson’s buyout was 2.2 million.Ã‚Â Which will be paid by private funds in the athletic department.Ã‚Â Tom Osborne will be will be asked what he thinks should be done for that athletic department, but as of now, he is not the interim A.D.
Things are not getting any better for the Nebraska Football team right now.Ã‚Â Coming off a blowout loss to the Missouri Tigers, the Huskers fell behind early and never was in todays game against the Oklahoma State Cowboys.Ã‚Â The 45-14 loss was the worst loss in Lincoln since 1958.
It was the fourth time this year that the defense gave up 40 points as well.Ã‚Â Oklahoma State racked up 551 total yards today on the Nebraska defense.Ã‚Â The Huskers were not able to stop the run or the pass so the Cowboys pretty much did whatever they wanted to do today.
The offense wasn’t much better today either.Ã‚Â It was the second straight game that they have struggled and I don’t know if it will be any better the rest of the year to be honest.Ã‚Â Sam Keller did throw for two td’s in the second half, but he also had two interceptions.
One bright spot on the offense was Quentin Castille who carried the rock 20 times for 102 yards.Ã‚Â Marlon Lucky and Roy Helu chipped in to help with the running game as well.Ã‚Â Lucky ran for 66 yards, and Helu finished with 55.
I don’t know where this team goes from here to be honest.Ã‚Â Can they drop any more?Ã‚Â Will they pick things up and go out and beat Texas A&M in a week?Ã‚Â Lets hope they get some motivation, and play their best game of the year and beat the Aggies.
