After a very long offseason, one that stretched into 2019 the Huskers open up the new season with a three-set sweep of Indiana. Nebraska’s successful run against Indiana continues, they haven’t lost since the late 70′s.
In what needs to be an offseason that brings significant improvement the Huskers are losing their best receiver and playmaker Wan’Dale Robinson. He announced this afternoon he will be entering the transfer portal and this comes after Wan’Dale’s dad and personal trainer met with Scott Frost Friday.
The Volleyball season will be starting at the end of January, yes you read that right. It will be an unusual season but Nebraska and Creighton are once again expected to be very strong. That part is not unusual.
Derrick Walker will need to wait to make his Nebraska debut. The Tennessee transfer was set to play his first game in a season and a half but 24 hours out both programs agreed to call off the game. It was scheduled to happen at Mackey Arena.
The Huskers continue to search for that first conference win after losing to 25th ranked Ohio State 90-54. The Buckeyes pulled away in the first half during a stretch where Nebraska missed 17 of 18 shots in Columbus. Big Red only made 28.3% of its shots and has now lost a dozen in a row ranked foes.
What was a two-point game at halftime changed after Michigan put together a 10-0 run early in the second half on the way to an 80-69 win on Christmas. The Huskers fall 0-2 in the Big Ten, Michigan remains undefeated at 7-0 with a 2-0 Big Ten record.
A familiar script for the Huskers at ninth-ranked Wisconsin, for the sixth time in eight games Nebraska led after the second half under 16 minute timeout. Again though Big Red did not finish strong, allowing Wisconsin to go on a 15-0 run. The Badgers won 67-53.

In a year where there was a lot working against Nebraska, it was business as usual for the staff signing another class that ranks inside the top 25 nationally. It could improve with time too, Avante Dickerson, did not sign with Minnesota, doesn’t mean he won’t but as of now, there is a potential opportunity for the Huskers.
There are decisions to be made soon for the Huskers seniors. Most of those are football decisions, Collin Miller’s is a life decision.After leaving the field on a stretcher against Illinois the senior captain has not returned, he was diagnosed with a spinal concussion.
t’s something Nebraska coaches and players have said all season long and it was a point of emphasis after practice on Monday: the program is better than what the record indicates. In a results-based business, that’s tough for fans to hear and accept, but coaches and players insist that it’s true.
As the Huskers take a step up in competition this week Georgia Tech wins at Pinnacle Bank Arena 75-64. Kobe Webster led the Huskers off the bench with 20 points, a very accurate night from the arc, he hit six of seven three point attempts.
The Huskers certainly remember what happened last year when they traveled to Minneapolis. “That game last year was really rough for us just basically going there and having nothing go our way,” defensive back Dicaprio Bootle said.
Don’t rule out a bowl game for the Huskers, if Nebraska can reach 4-4 by winning the last two games, it’s a real possibility. A 4-4 record isn’t essential during COVID-19 like other years, also the idea this year is to put games on tv people want to watch.
We all know how much a five dollar footlong costs and a burger off the dollar menu, but what about hidden costs on the football field? It’s not as clear, right? What is the actual cost of a mistake, the ones the Huskers commit?
Another tight one between these two rivals, as Iowa makes the plays late to win 26-20.With Adrian Martinez back starting the first play was a positive one, an instant improvement over last week but the Huskers did not pick up a first down on the first possession.
To have a shot at winning this game, to be in it, in the second half here’s what has to happen. The offense has to take care of the ball, before getting beat 5-0 in the turnover battle last week against Illinois Nebraska forced as many turnovers as it gave up, 5-5.
It’s hard to believe in something you don’t see. Teams that successfully pull off a rebuild believe they will reach the destination and they believe in the journey. It’s all about belief because you can’t get there without putting in the work that reflects the destination.
It’s time to move on to Iowa and that’s what the Nebraska football team is trying to do. After practice on Monday, several players and Coach Scott Frost spoke to the media via Zoom about moving on from a very bad loss to Illinois and getting focused on a Black Friday date with Iowa.
Saturday was a day to remember for Connor Culp and the Huskers. For a couple reasons, both good and not so good. For starters, it was the first win of the season and it happened in dramatic fashion, always memorable.
No doubt the body language was all very positive at practice this morning off the win against Penn State. Important to consider the players said the same thing last week after the loss at Northwestern.
Nebraska hasn’t lost to team anybody else beat. After dropping Penn State to 0-4 the Huskers have only beaten teams on their schedule that others have beat as well. In other words, it’s a hard schedule to start, 1-2 isn’t too shabby.
