Morning Husker fans. The University officially released video and a statement about the upcoming East Stadium expansion that will be going on at Memorial Stadium. There will be an additional 6,000 seats added as well as 38 new suites. The initial plan is calling for the entire expansion to be completed before the 2013 football season. Once completed Memorial Stadium will hold around 91,000 fans and be just on the outside of top 10 largest venues in college football.

Some fans have been wondering what was going on with all the trees being removed a while back on the East side and that’s just to make room for all the construction. Trees will be added back and everything will look great once completed. The developers were able to keep the old facade and will make it look great with the new construction that will be going around it.

Take a look at the video blow and let us know what you think.

What’s going on Husker fans? It’s the dreaded off-season where we have three months before Husker football really starts kicking into shape again. There hasn’t been too much to blog about at this time as I haven’t felt the need to get into the whole Nebraska to the Big10 rumor mill talk. It could happen, but we won’t know anything until the Big10 has their upcoming meetings. Once we get closer to the meetings, expect some chatter about the possible move here on Nebsports.

Some preseason polls are starting to come out and most will have the Husker ranked around the 10th spot on average it appears. Sports Illustrated as Nebraska rated #13 while ESPN’s Mark Schlabach has the Huskers placed in the #7 spot.  Personally I think the Huskers should be right around the #10 spot as they do have questions on the offensive side of the ball. No matter what though, it sure is going to be an exciting season for Husker fans.

Mark Schlabach’s full top 25 poll:

1. Alabama Crimson Tide
2. Ohio State Buckeyes
3. Boise State Broncos
4. Texas Longhorns
5. Virginia Tech Hokies
6. TCU Horned Frogs
7. Florida Gators
8. Iowa Hawkeyes
9. Nebraska Cornhuskers
10. Oregon Ducks
11. Wisconsin Badgers
12. Oklahoma Sooners
13. Miami Hurricanes
14. LSU Tigers
15. USC Trojans
16. Pittsburgh Panthers
17. Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets
18. Arkansas Razorbacks
19. Penn State Nittany Lions
20. Oregon State Beavers
21. Florida State Seminoles
22. Cincinnati Bearcats
23. Georgia Bulldogs
24. Stanford Cardinal
25. North Carolina Tar Heels

Good morning Husker fans! Wow what a game last night down in San Diego for the Nebraska Cornhuskers as they dominated the Pac 10 Arizona Wildcats 33-0. The Blackshirts set the tone early and after that Arizona had no idea what to do on either side of the ball. The Huskers offense broke out the wildcat formation and Zac Lee and Niles Paul hooked up on their longest play of the year as the Huskers picked up theit 10th win of the season in the blowout victory.

I’ll start off talking about the offense. Wow, where the heck did this offense come from? Besides having to settle for a couple of short field goals and a couple boneheaded penalties on the offensive line the offenese played one of the best games on the year.

Rex Burkhead running the Wildcat? Lee hitting Paul for a 74-yard touchdown? Paul picking up big yards on a wide receiver reverse? It sure left many Husker fans wondering if Shawn Watson was actually calling plays!  Lee finished the game 13 of 23 for 173 yards and one touchdown. Paul was the main receiver with four catches that he hauled in for 123 yards. On the ground it was all about true freshman Burkhead. Rex was a man Wednesday night as he carried the ball 17 times for 89 yards. We can’t forget about Lee who carried the ball 18 times for 65 yards as well.

On the defensive side of the ball it was all about the “Blackshirt Swagger”. The blackshirts set the tone from the beginning of the game as they put pressure on the Wildcats the first two plays of the game and then caused a interception on third and long. Matt O’hanlon picked off the Wildcat pass and soon after that it was Lee running it in for the touchdown.

All night long the Blackshirts were all over the wildcats. They completely dominated the game. Arizona set Holiday Bowl records with six first downs, 109 yards of offense, 51 offensive plays and nine punts. The Wildcats didn’t get into Nebraska territory until the first drive of the third quarter. That is what I call DOMINATION!

Alex Henery was his usual self as he kicked four field goals and also pinned the Wildcats deep on a couple of punts. Way to represent your own Blackshirt Alex!

Things are looking up and up for the Nebraska football program. Look ahead to the schedule next year and what the team has coming back and you can see why the ESPN announcers last night were talking about the Huskers being a preseason top 10 team.

It’s a great time to be a Husker fan!
