The team, chosen by a vote of the league’s coaches earlier this week, included five Huskers who received first-team All-Big 12 honors. First baseman Brandon Buckman, shortstop Ryan Wehrle, right fielder Luke Gorsett, starting pitcher Tony Watson and closer Brett Jensen were all first-team selections, giving the Huskers’ their highest number of first-team honorees since 2001. The five first-team selections also matches NU’s best mark in school history.

In addition to the five first-team honorees, Andrew Brown (utility) and Johnny Dorn (starting pitcher) were both chosen as second-team honorees, while Jake Opitz (second baseman), Jeff Christy (catcher), Nick Jaros (outfield) and Andy Gerch (designated hitter) were all honorable-mention picks.

Husker Football recruit Steve Allen will not be making it to Lincoln as everything thought.  He has learned that attending a community college in Kansas his first year and then two community colleges in California will stop him from attending the University of Nebraska.  He might have to head to a Division 2 school to continue his football career. 

Allen’s teammate Andre Jones the 5 star secondary player will be make it to Lincoln for sure.  He has passed all his classes and will be in Lincoln in June!

Word is that Fox called Steve Pederson the other day and asked if they would mind moving their game to Sunday night instead of Saturday September 2nd.  I don’t think this is a great idea when Nebraska has to turn around and play again the next Saturday.  I like a full week of rest and a schedule that the players and coaches are used to.  Keep it that way please :) 

What do you all think about the possible game date move?  Leave a comment and lets hear what all the Husker fans have to say.

The Huskers have added another commitment to their 2006 class. Jay-R Strowbridge, a point guard from Sparkman High School in northern Alabama, originally committed to Murray State but choose not to attend after the head coach took another coaching job at a different school.

Strowbridge averaged 14 points and four rebounds for Sparkman, who reached the state playoffs in Alabama’s largest class with a 32-4 record. Because the spring signing period has passed, Strowbridge’s commitment is non-binding; he’s not officially a scholarship member of the Huskers until classes start in the fall.
