NebraskaQuarterback Sam Keller will be out the rest of the season with a broken left collarbone.  Keller was sacked late in the fourth quarter against Texas when the injury occured.  There isn’t a timetable on a return at this point, so I would say it will be Joe Ganz the rest of the year behind center.

Ganz knows this play book inside and out, and should do a pretty good job.  Look for the offense to run some options, and for more rushing yards out of the quarterback position.  It should be exciting!

We wish Sam the best of luck with the recovery, and hope him all the best.

NebraskaIn a game where most Huskers fans were left asking, “Where has this team been all year?”, the Nebraska Cornhuskers played their best overall game of the season as they lost to Texas 28-25.  The Huskers had a lead heading into the 4th quarter, but that is when Jamaal Charles took over the game.

Charles ran for a career high 290 yards in the game.  216 of the 290 yards came in the 4th quarter on long runs of 25, 40, and 86 yards.  With the Nebraska defense blitzing almost every play, all it took was Charles getting past the line and he was gone.

I liked how the defense went out and played balls out the entire game.  Sure they were getting tired at the end, but it was nice to see pressure on the quarterback, and players flying around all over the field.  They coaching staff told the players, go out there and play for yourself and make some plays and that is exactly what they did.

Marlon Lucky rushed for 111 yards on 24 carries to lead the rushing attack for the Huskers.  Sam Keller finished the day 23 for 35 and 298 yards along with two touchdowns to Nate Swift.  Keller was injured late in the 4th quarter however with a possibly broken collarbone.  Joe Ganz came in and passed for a touchdown and 2 point conversion to bring the Huskers within three points, but the onside kick was recovered by the Lonhorns to secure the victory.

I think we are all suprised with how well the Huskers played on Saturday.  Will the same type of team show up when the Huskers take on the Kansas Jayhawks on Saturday.  Can the Huskers give the Jayhawks their first loss on the season?  Lets hope so!

NebraskaAs Husker fans the past month has not been the best.  From getting blown out in consecutive weeks to losing recruits, it is something that the Husker Nation is not used too.  As we have seen earlier this week with the de-committ of Jonas Gray, (who has now committed to Notre Dame), the football team is going to definately lose out on some recruits and they are uncertain of what will happen with the coaching staff.

Right now Blaine Gabbert and Will Compton are both looking into Missouri.  Which makes since, as both players are from the state of Missouri.  Doug Rippy and D.J. Woods are also looking at different schools.  They were our two players from the state of Ohio.

As you can see, this recruiting class is going to lose some players, but we are also going to gain some other ones who are putting their trust into Tom Osborne, that he will go out and hire the best available coach that the Huskers can get.

Just last night, the nations #1 defensive junior college player, Simi Kuli committed to the Nebraska Football team.  Kuli is a defensive end from El Camino Community College in California.  I’ve been reading that the final three teams in his recruiting were Texas A&M, LSU, and Nebraska.  Yes, he choose the Huskers over the LSU Tigers!

Lets roll with the punches and see how the recruiting class turns out, and as well with the coaching staff.  As we all know, there is going to be some changes made, so lets set back and see what Osborne has in mind and stay behind our program!

NebraskaJonas Gray, the star running back from Michigan has decided to de-commit from the University of Nebraska and open up his recruiting once again.  He says his decision is because of Coach Callahan being on the hot seat and he doesn’t want to play for a coach that could be out of there in a year or even sooner.

Gray is listing Notre Dame, Michigan, LSU, and Nebraska has his favorites right now.  He is still interested in the Huskers, he just wants to see how things play out with the coaching staff.

Also, look for Blaine Gabbert to do the same once the coaching change is made.  I see Gabbert moving onto Missouri but I sure hope I am wrong.  This is what happens when you have coaches on the brink of being fired, your recruiting class doesn’t know what to do, and they have to try to make the best decisions for their future.  You can’t fault these guys for looking around, if I were them, I would be too.

NebraskaOffensive linemen Lydon Murtha will be sidelines for the rest of the season due to a foot injury Coach Callahan said yesterday.  Murtha was injured on the Huskers’ first series Saturday in the 36-14 loss to Texas A&M but finished the game. Callahan said the junior would be out six to eight weeks after starting NU’s first eight games at right tackle.

I’m hearing reports that true freshman Jaivorio Burkes could possibly have his redshirt pulled off him due to all the injuries on the offensive line.  I’m not for this decision at all.  The season is already going bad, why waste the kids redshirt when you have D.J. Jones and Mike Huff who could move around on the line.

The coaching staff has already wasted plenty of redshirts that weren’t needed this year (Niles Paul), please don’t make another mistake and take Burkes redshirt off him as well.

NebraskaNebraska fans were hoping for a turn around in the 2007 season when they took on the Texas A&M Aggiest on Saturday in Lincoln but a terrible second half stopped all that hoping.  The Aggies outscored the Huskers 20-0 in the second half as the Huskers could not get anything going on offense.

Marlon Lucky had a career high 13 receptions for 125 yars, but only had 23 yards on eight attempts rushing the ball.  Quentin Castille led the team with 60 yards on nine carries.  Roy Helu chipped in with 39 yards on five carries.

Sam Keller had another bad day at the quarterback position.  He finished 26 of 44 for 275 yards and one TD (To Purify), but had several poorly thrown balls, and still isn’t getting rid of the ball when he needs too.  Keller is holding onto the ball way to long, and taking too many sacks.  He needs to get a feel for the pocket and make his reads down the field faster.

Onto the defense, there were times where they played really good, but then they would let up a big play on a third down or, on first down Texas A&M would roll off 8 yard gains which set them up perfectly for a first down on the next play.

The defense wasn’t sure who had the ball multiple times and you could tell that with all the rushing yards that Aggies had during the game.  Stephen McGee set career highs with 35 carries for 167 yards and Jorvorskie Lane rushed for 130 yards and four touchdowns for the Aggies.

Another big play that took a ton of momentum away from the Huskers was in the first half when Nate Swift called for a fair catch and fumbled the ball.  Shortly after the fumble, Lane ran off a big TD run and A&M had all the momentum once again.

It doesn’t get any easier for the Huskers next week either.  They will travel to Austin to face off against the Texas Longhorns.  Prepare for another butt whoopin Husker fans.
