NebraskaNebraska Associate AD for Football Tim Cassidy has decided to take a similar job with the Texas A&M Aggies.  Cassidy will be working closely with newly hired head caoch Mike Sherman.  The two worked together in the past at A&m so it will be a good fit for Cassidy.

TIme will tell what will happen with this poisition.  First a head coach will be hired, and then they will move onto this position I’d assume.  Maybe the head coach would bring along some one that would work closely with him and the Interm A.D. Tom Osborne.

NebraskaInterim Athletic Director Tom Osborne, ans how named himself the interm football coach at Nebraska!  But hold on people, don’t get happy lol.  Osborne is only doing this until the new coach is hired, and it allows him to get out on the road and do some recruiting until the new coach is hired.

It will allow him more in-home visits with recruits rather then sitting back in Lincoln and only working the phones etc.

It has been reported that Kevin Cozgrove and Phil Elmassian are not doing any sort of recruiting.  Don’t look for those two to be on the new coaching staff once everything gets setteled.

NebraskaMarlon Lucky and Carl Nicks have been named to 2nd team All-Big 12.  Ten other Husker players were added to honorable mention as well.  Not too bad overall for a team that finished below .500 and not going to a bowl game.  Hopefully Lucky decides to come back and play his senior year for the Big Red, and will be first team next year.

The players that received honorable mention are:

Brett Byford
Lydon Murtha
Jacob Hickman
Maurice Purify
Zach Potter
Bo Rudd
Steve Octavien
Larry Asante
Cortney Grixby
Dan Titchener

NebraskaBo Pelini has been interviewd by Tom Osborne and all the reports are saying it went very well.  Turner Gill will also be interviewed but as of right now nothing is set in stone.  Gill is said to be in Florida recruiting and hasn’t been reached so far to comment.

Looking for Wake Forest head coach Jim Grobe to also be interviewd.  I could see the whole process being over this week however with Bo Pelini being named the Head Coach.

NebraskaWhile there is a press conference schedule in 45 minutes (9:30 Lincoln time) I have heard that Bill Callahan was let go by the University this morning.  Around 7:20 Callahan arrived at the University with Tom Osborne shortly following.  The meeting only last 10-15 minutes so it must have been right to the point.

Right now, I haven’t heard word about what assistants will be let go, they started their meeting around 8 a.m.  I’ll be away from the computer most of today, so please bare with me, I will have updates as quickly as I can!

NebraskaWell for the second time in four years under Bill Callahan, the Nebraska Cornhuskers will not be playing in a bowl game.  Nebraska fell to the Colorado Buffaloes by the score of 65-51 to end a painful 2007 football season.  The team finished 5-7 which was unheard of before the Bill Callahan tenure.

It was really the tale of two halves for the Huskers today.  They came out and moved the ball well and actually had a 35-24 lead at halftime, but in the second half that is when everything went down hill.  Two interceptions and a blocked punt gave the Buffaloes all the momentum that they needed to get by the Huskers.  Oh yeah, and the defense played continued to play like crap just like all season under Coach Cozgrove.

So now the big question is this.  How long until we get an official word on Bill Callahan?  He will be meeting with Tom Osborne on Saturday to discuss his future.  Everyone expects that Callahan, Cozgrove, and atleast one other assistant coach will be let go.

The name everyone is talking about for next head coach is Bo Pelini.  Credible sources are saying he will be the next coach at the University of Nebraska, but we will have to wait on an official announcement to be 100% certain.

NebraskaHead Coach Doc Sadler took a recruiting trip to Europe, and has found one player that he really likes.  Christopher Niemann who is a 6’11 230 pounder from Germany signed with the Nebraska Cornhuskers and hopes to join the team next year.

However, there will be some paper work that needs to be done, and even more work by the NCAA before Niemann would become eligble.  Two of Neimann’s ex teammates had signed with Iowa State and Washington State but were ruled ineligble because some of the players on their team in Europe were paid players.  So it will take some time to sort everything out, and hopefully all three players will become eligible next year.

NebraskaWell Well Well what is everyong going to be talking about this week? A HUSKER WIN!  The Nebraska Cornhuskers came out to play on Senior Day against the Kansas State Wildcats and they dominated them.  The final score was 72-31.

Junior Quarterback Joe Ganz led the Huskers by throwing seven touchdowns and throwing for 510 yards.  Yes, you read that right!  Seven touchdowns and 510 yards!  That is a great performance by the Husker offense today.  All the way from the quarterback to the linemen, and onto the running backs and receivers.  Everyone did a great job!

Maurice Purify led the Husker receivers with six catches for 108 yards.  Todd Peterson grabbed four balls and two touchdowns while Frantz Hardy caught three balls for 83 yards and three touchdowns.  Marlon Lucky and Terrance Nunn both caught a touchdown pass from Ganz as well.

Lucky led the Husker rushing attack with 103 yards and freshman Quentin Castille finished with 50 yards on 11 carries.  Not as many rushing yards as I thought they would get but that is what happens when Ganz passes for over 500 yards.

Onto the defensive side of the ball.  Sure K-state scored 31 points, but in a closer game, I don’t think that would have happened.  Steve Octavien playing in his last game at Memorial Stadium led the team with nine tackles and one sack.  Armando Murillo finished with six tackles and one sack.  Larry Asante also had six tackles, while Corey McKeon had five tackles.

I think Courtney Grixby’s kickoff return in the first quarter ignited the Huskers. It gave them the spark to go out there and whoop some butt.  After that play, it was all downhill for the Wildcats.

Now we move onto Colorado after a bye week.  The Colorado game is always a big one for the players and fans. Lets get another win in Boulder!

Oh yeah, lets see if those K-State fans come back and leave some comments now after they all the doggin they have been doing on the Huskers.  Maybe you guys need to ask yourself if Prince should really be your coach!

GO BIG RED!

NebraskaWill Nebraska come out and play balls to the wall on Senior Day in Lincoln?  I would sure hope so as the seniors want to go out on a high note during their last home game of their career.  They need to put everything aside that has been happening and go out there and just dominate these Wildcats.

Steve Octavien needs to have a huge game in my opinion.  This is one player that everything thought would be an All-American and it seems like we really never got to see the real Steve Octavien out there.  He needs to be in a system that just lets him fly around, and that is not Cozgrove’s defense.

Courtny Grixby, the guy everyone was on a few years ago because he was too small to cover anyone.  This man is a true Husker.  He bleeds red and goes out there and tries his best every single time.  Great athlete and Grixby needs to know the Husker fans really appreciate his play.

Another senior I see having a big day is Mo Purify.  Mo is going to get the ball thrown to him quite a bit this game I think.  Expect Mo to come down with atleast one touchdown today from Ganz.  It will really depend on how the games goes and how well the Huskers are running the ball, but I expect Purify to have a huge day.

My final prediction.  Huskers 35 K-State 27
