NebraskaThe Nebraska Cornhuskers picked up three verbal commitments over the weekend has the had a pretty big recuiting weekend in Lincoln.  Brothers Steven Osborne and Courtney Osborne from Garland, Texas both commited to the Huskers after their official visit.  Shortly after they commited, Antonio Bell suprised the Huskers coaching staff by verbally commiting.

Steven Osborne is projected to be a wide receiver while his brother Courtney is projected to play a safety position for the Huskers.  Bell will be a bigtime wide receiver target down the road and could be a big play maker in the future.

Welcome to the Big Red Family!

NebraskaAs expected  the past day or so, Eddie Brown has decommited from the Nebraska Cornhuskers and will accept a scholarship offer from Texas A&M.  Don’t be too shocked at all of this, A&M was always his his number one choice, he just had to see if they would end up offering a full ride scholarship.  After a player wasn’t able to get into A&M, that opened up an offer for Brown and he quickly grabbed it.

The Huskers will move on, and get another quality recruit to take Browns spot.  Don’t worry about that!

NebraskaWill Compton announced that he will stay commited to the Nebraska Cornhuskers and is happy have have the recruiting come to a close.  Compton had his home state Missouri Tigers and the Illinois Fighting Illini along with the Huskers in his final three choices.  Even with the coaching changes, he will stay with the Huskers.

Compton turned down Illinois, Missouri, LSU, and late offer from Notre Dame to join the Huskers.  He is very excited to play for Bo Pelini and you can probably expect to see him playing pretty early in his career at Nebraska.  I can’t wait to see Compton and Blake Lawrence on the field at the same time in the next few years, it could even be this next year!

Thanks for staying with the Big Red Mr. Compton!

NebraskaShawn Watson will be staying with the University of Nebraska after declining an offer to become the offensive coordinator at Alabama.  Alabama coach Nick Saban was hoping that Watson would accept the plane to come pick him up in Lincoln and come talk with the University but Watson sayd no thank you.

Nebraska fans should be lucky that Watson is staying with the Huskers.  I for sure know I am.  Watson could have earned a huge pay raise upto $400,000!  That would have been around a $150,000 raise overall.

***Reports are saying that Watson wasn’t officialy offered the job, Alabama just asked for permission to speak with him, but he told Nebraska officials that he wanted to stay with the University of Nebraska***

NebraskaThe Nebraska Football staff got another verbal commitment on Monday.  Eddie Brown said yes to the Huskers after not receiving an offer from Texas A&M which is very close to his home.  Brown says he can’t wait to get to Lincoln and be party of the Husker team.

Brown is a 6’2 275 pound defensive linemen that mostly plays defensive tackle but can move around on the line he says.    He turned down offers from Oklahoma State, Texas Tech, Missouri and TCU to pick Nebraska.

Welcome to the Big Red Family Mr. Brown!

NebraskaRumors are going around on the Internet and talk shows that Alabama and their Head Coach Nick Saban want to meet with Nebraska Offensive Coordinator Shawn Watson about the opening for the same poisition at the University of Alabama.  Nebraska will have to give  Watson permission to talk with Saban and Alabama from what I have heard and that has not been done.

Watson could definately earn more money down in the S.E.C. conference, but would he leave Nebraska at this point?  I don’t think he will leave just because he can earn more money, but that is just what I think.  What do you think Husker Fans?

NebraskaThe Nebraska Cornhuskers had a good shot at picking up their first win in the Big12 conference this year but they were not able to get by the Baylor Bears who came into Lincoln and beat the Huskers 72-70.

It was an awesome half for the Baylor Bears that got them the win in Lincoln.  They scored 42 points in the second half and quickly took over the game.  The Bears closed out the game with a 7-1 run.

If you want to look at one spot that lost the game for the Huskers, it would have to be from the free throw line where they only went 11-20 during the second half.

Aleks Maric led the Huskers scoring 21 points and grabbing nine rebounds.  He did miss a couple easy buckets that he should have had however.  Seems that Maric pisses 2-3 of those shots a game.  Steve Harley chipped in a career high 15 points, but the support cast wasn’t quite enough to get the Huskers over the top.

Things won’t get any better for the Huskers as they will now travel to Kansas to play the Jayhawks on Saturday afternoon.  Look for the Huskers to fall to 0-4 in the Big12 and move their season record to 11-6 overall.   I just don’t think they can knock of the Jayhawks at their place.

NebraskaThe Nebraska Cornhuskers got a verbal commitment from another player in Texas over the weekend as Alonzo Whaley commited while on his official visit.  Whaley said he pretty much had his mind made up even before stepping foot on campus, that is how well of a bond he had with the coaching staff.

Whaley will probably start out as a linebacker, but could also give the fullback position a try.  One interesting thing about Whaley is that he has a younger brother that is also supposed to be pretty good and will be in the 2009 class.  This could only help out recruiting his younger brother if the Huskers are interested.

Congrats on joining the Big Red family Mr. Whaley!

NebraskaThe Nebraska Cornhuskers were a cold shooting team Tuesday night in Boulder, Colorado as they lost 55-51.  The Huskers have not won a mens basketball game at Colorado since 2005.  If this team really wants to make it to a post season tournament this year, they are going to have to score some more points.

Cookie Miller led the Huskers with 18 points while Aleks Maric chipped in with 14 points.  Where has Ryan Anderson been?  He was a hot shooter last season, but just doesn’t have the stroke so far in 2008.

This was really a game the Cornhuskers should have won.  You have got to win these type of games on the road in the Big 12 if you really want a chance to make it to the big tournament.  The Huskers will next play on Saturday night against Baylor.  Can we say a must win for Doc Sadler and company?
