NebraskaNebraska Volleyball player Sarah Pavan has been named the 2006 Volleyball Play Of the Year!  Pavan, a biochemistry major who carries a perfect 4.0 GPA, also won college volleyball’s top academic honor earlier this season. The only other woman to win player of the year accolades for both academic and on-court excellence was former Stanford star Ogonna Nnamani, who did it in 2004.

Nebraska is the first school to have back-to-back National Player Of The Year awards.  Last year Christina Houghtelling won the award.  Houghtelling will be back next year for her senior year as she took this year off to rehab from shoulder surgery.

Congrats to Sarah Pavan!

NebraskaNebraska Head Coach Bill Callahan announced on Thursday that Buddy Wyatt has been hired as an assistant coach with the Husker football program. Wyatt will join Callahan’s staff immediately as defensive line coach and will assist the Huskers during their preparation for the Cotton Bowl.

The 40-year-old Wyatt brings 15 years of Division I coaching experience to the Huskers, and comes to Nebraska following four seasons as the defensive line coach at the University of Alabama. During Wyatt’s tenure in Tuscaloosa, the Crimson Tide annually ranked among the nation’s top defenses.

Wyatt is also recognized as one of the nation’s top recruiters. Wyatt has been responsible for recruiting the Mississippi High School Player of Year to the Crimson Tide program each of the past two seasons - running back Terry Grant in 2006 and Jimmy Johns in 2005. Wyatt helped attract top 20 recruiting classes to Tuscaloosa in each of the past three seasons, while focusing much of his recruiting efforts in the state of Florida.

Good pickup for the Huskers.  Getting a good recruiter is important and he knows Auburn pretty well so that will only help for the upcoming Cotton Bowl.

NebraskaBill Callahan has already met with one assistant coach and could be meeting with two-three more in the next few days.  Callahan and Steve Pederson need to hire a defensive line coach to fill into John Blake’s position as he is headed to North Carolina.

Alabama defensive line coach Buddy Wyatt interviewd for the job yesterday and said that it went very well.  A few other names that are being thrown around on the Internet for possible replacements are Eric Roack from SMU, and John Palermo from Miami.

It will be interesting to see who Pederson selects, hopefully they are a great recruiter and fit in just as well as Blake has for the Huskers.

NebraskaFourth string quarterback Brian Hildebrand is leaving the team hoping to join a D1 AA school and play football for them next year.  It is a good move for Hildebrand as he probably would not have ever played for the Huskers with Keller, Ganz, and Witt competiting for time next year.

The Nebraska coaches are helping Hildebrand find a school so that is also good news.

NebraskaWell all those rumors about defensive line coach and master recruiter John Blake going to North Carolina are true.  John Blake is leaving the Huskers after three football seasons to join Butch Davis’ staff at North Carolina.

Although UNC hasn’t officially announced the hiring, it’s believed that Blake will be the Tar Heels’ defensive line coach and assistant head coach. Davis recently was hired to replace John Bunting.

We can only hope that the recruits that Blake got to verbally committ stand by their committment and don’t jump ship to other schools including North Carolina.

Thanks Coach Blake for what you have done in your short stay in Lincoln.

NebraskaHusker committ Jared Glover who verbally committed to the Husker football program a few months ago has now switched his committment to the Oklahoma State Cowboys.  The reason he said was being closer to family and that his sister has decided to goto college in Stillwater also.

You can’t be upset when a player decides to do this when it is family decision.  I don’t see it being a bad loss though.  Sure, we would take Glover on the team, but this also frees up another scholarship for high profile players that wait until signing day to declare their committement.

Good luck to the Glover family, except when you are playing the Big Red!
