David Oku enrolls at Lincoln EastWow, talk about a shocking development in Lincoln today as rumors begin spreading around that senior high school running back David Oku from Oklahoma has enrolled into school at Lincoln East. It had been rumored before that he was dating a girl that he met on his recruiting trip to Nebraska but nothing was for certain. Now it appears that it is indeed true and he has enrolled into school at Lincoln East.

Oku had eliminated the Huskers earlier in his recruitment but who knows where the Huskers stand now. We know that the Huskers are short on scholarships as it stands and they have already got a commitment from running back Rex Burkhead. Would Pelini and staff make room for Oku if he wanted to sign with the Huskers?

patrick asks to leave nebraskaI have heard news this evening that quarterback Patrick Witt has asked for his scholarship release and has already taken the necessary steps to leave the Husker football program. Witt was expected to be the starting quarterback next season so this is a big blow to the Husker program in my opinion.

Now it appears like Zac Lee will be the man under center for the Cornhuskers in the 2009 season. Behind Lee on the depth chart I imagine would be Kody Spano and then freshman Cody Green. Green has the possibility of moving up the depthy chart in Spring ball but for him to overtake Lee for the starting job would be very hard I would think.

We will have more on this story when the university releases their statement. As of right now Witt has not been released of his scholarship from head coach Bo Pelini.

nebraska football tickets going upThe University of Nebraska announced on Thursday that they would be raising the football tickets by $2. The new printed face on the tickets will be $54 rather then $52. Not much of an increase so I’m not upset with it one bit. Sure we pay high donations for our season tickets but that is the case with most programs around the country.

One reason for the increase in ticket price is to pay for a $3 million upgrade that the university is doing inside the stadium. Improvements include two replay boards that will be added in the northwest and northeast towers. The screens are the same size as those on the south towers, measuring 21’ high and 24’ wide. The addition will give Memorial Stadium five replay boards and allow nearly every fan a clear view of a HuskerVision screen. All of the replay boards will also be upgraded to high defintion.

So everyone get ready to open up their checkbooks or grab their credit cards because starting Feb 23rd, we can renew our season tickets and also send in our donations if we have not yet.

nebraska is blown out by misouriI’m going to keep this pretty short today as it is Valentines Day and all. The Cornhuskers traveled down to Columbia, Missouri and were rolled by the Tigers by the score of 70-47. Yeah the Huskers lost by 23 points on the road. A cold shooting day and a second half where they could not play defense turned the game into a blowout and dissappointing loss for the Huskers.

The Tigers got way to many fast break points in the second half and the lack of a big man down low hurt the Huskers I felt. This game sure doesn’t help the Huskers chances of making the big dance come March that is for sure.

Nebraska holds off ColoradoIt sure wasn’t pretty but the Nebraska Cornhuskers picked up their second road win in the conference on Wednesday night. The Huskers held a nice lead through the game but then seen it dwindle down late in the game before they were able to get out of Boulder with a 55-53 victory. The win in Boulder was the first one for Doc Sadler since he became coach.

As a team the Huskers had a season high 18 turnovers in the game. They are lucky that the Buffaloes committed 13 of their own turnovers or this could have easily been a loss.

Steve Harley and Ryan Anderson both led the Huskers with 12 points each.

Nebraska returns to the court on Saturday when the Huskers host to No. 16 Texas at the Devaney Center. The game will tip off at 1 p.m. and can be seen nationally on ESPN.
