      The Director of the Athletic Performance Lab and the Director of Sports Nutrition were also let go.   Cleanin house!!!

      You hate to let go of guys that have been around for ages, but really they were dead weight, and probably should've been cut years ago.

      I thought the Old Girl was redone just a couple years ago? I'm fairly sure it was done while Riley was here.

      I'm pretty sure that's right @TonyStalloni. We toured the facilities a couple months ago and I'm certain they said the stadium and all the practice fields were redone while Riley was there. We didn't actually go outside on those two practice fields but we were in the indoor and outdoor on the main stadium turf and to my untrained eye they all seemed brand new. The outdoor grass field was the only one that looked a little strained but it was March after all.

      Was it that recent? Shows you what I know. I remember it was changed in 1984 and 1992 but I can't remember the most recent one.

       

  3. Nebraska basketball presser at 1:30. Probably to announce the hiring of a new Asst. Coach, but four different media guys are questioning if that's all that's being announced.

      The hubbub is likely because Gates hasn't even been at Florida a month in a similar position. There's a number of articles doing damage prevention out there covering this...and frankly, Gates seems like a good hire for our team and a good step towards achieving competence two years in a row. 

       

      That, and I can't imagine Florida is happy with Nebraska at all. In the past six months we:

      • Hired their #1 Head Football coaching candidate out from under them (contrary to what they claim)
      • Skunked their Women's Volleyball team for our fifth National Championship in the sport
      • Hired a good assistant coach away from them after being on the job for around a month (though if there's validity to the stories of Gates not being happy, then some of that is on Florida)

       

      Not too shabby.

  4. Guise, I just had the best root canal I've ever had in my life. So good.

  5. Nebraska's going to retire Sarah Pavan's number at a match this year. She's the best individual player I think we've ever had, so that's fitting.

      The team with her, Larson and Houghtelling is the best collection of talent ever together in program history, IMO. 

       

      Houghtelling sort of gets the shaft in terms of who gets remembered from those teams. Pavan was the star, and Larson the Olympian, but Houghtelling beat Pavan for PotY in 2005. 

  6. According to Huskers.com, Tanner Lee is the first Husker to be drafted as a Quarterback in 21 years. The last one? 

     

    Scott Frost - 1997

    1. Thanks_Tom RR

      Thanks_Tom RR

      Frost was drafted in 1998 as a safety. It has been 26 years since McCant was drafted, the last Nebraska player drafted as a QB.

    2. C N Red

      C N Red

      Yep, Frost drafted as a safety. There was a good story on Sharp & Benning other day about how Frost got Washington to commit to us over ASU. Basically told him he was drafted as a safety and not a qb, and that his best chance to reach the nfl would be at RB which is what we were recruiting him as.

    3. NUance

      NUance

      1983 is known as the QB draft.  Six first rounders:  John Elway, Todd Blackledge, Jim Kelly, Tony Eason, Ken O'Brien and Dan Marino.  Husker Trivia:  What NU QB was drafted in 1983?  He was a starter in the NFL for a while.  LINK

  7. Full Spring Game video is up in the OP of the 2018 Season.

     

    I left the condensed version there as well. Never hurts to have both.

      You'll have the rosters in a week or so after the game like they did in NCAA.

      You'll be able to get the rosters, but won't have the team names, logos, stadiums, announcers etc.

      I'll have updated rosters for NCAA 14 before the summer is out.

  10. So, uh... Nebraska just lost to UNO for the first time in 21 years. A 13-19 UNO squad.

     

    That's a problem.

      @Comfortably Numb This one type of baseball loss hasn't happened in two decades, though. It's old enough to drink.

      Just keep in mind I'm pretty much a bandwagon fan when it comes to Nebraska baseball or basketball. If they're doing good I'll pay attention, if not I pretty much don't care :dunno. Now football and volleyball are another story...

      UNO beat UNL back when I was in school (Turner Gil playing era,  He played shortstop)  The UNO pitcher walked about 12, but UNL could not get a timely hit.  Stuff happens in sports

  12. The Union on campus has ousted Runza, and is replacing it with Steak N Shake and a Chik-fil-A. I think that'll be the only Steak N Shake in Nebraska.

      Dr. Gay, one of the physics professors (the same one that did Football Physics on Husker Vision back in the day), used to eat at the union BK everyday. I think he even had office hours there.

      @Comfortably Numb Agree about Freddy's.  Love that place.  I have one less than 1/2 mile from my house.  I have to resist the temptation daily.

      @darkhorse85 Yeah, that place is dangerous. Their steak burgers and fries are great but that Chicago Dog Freddy's style...drool. Love those things.

  13. Go vote for your Huskers.

     

     

  14. CBS just used an interesting clip to promote tomorrow's bracket show. It's Husker Fans celebrating getting into the NCAA tourney from 2014.

    Not bad for a kids on an NAIA roster to have a Heisman-winning coach.

      I wonder if he has aspirations for taking over at Millard North when Petito finally retires?

  19. WBB Coach Amy Williams has been named a semifinalist for the Naismith Award.

     

    Last season the Huskers finished 8-22. This year they're 19-8 with two regular season games to go.

      Damn well warranted, too. She should win it.

      An ESPN stats guy says if the season ended right now, Nebraska would be in a play-in game. Look for the 12 seed in the bottom right bracket.

  23. Friend just tried to get Spring Game tickets at "best available" and got an error message.

     

    May have already sold out? If so, it's the first ever sellout of the Spring Game.

      Officially sold out, less than an hour after they were available to the general public.

       

       

  24. Had to try three times to get my Spring Game ticket order to go through. Lost good seats in West Stadium twice, ended up two rows back from where our season tickets are in Section 35.

     

    Not a great day for the UNL ticket website.

      I'm trying to call the ticket office about getting basketball tickets for tonights game at Minny (angling to see if I can get those money seats behind the bench).  Either get a busy tone or put on hold only to be hung up on 15 minutes later due to "heavy call volume"

    3. knapplc

      There's almost no chance of calling the ticket office today.

    4. Red Five

      I have realized that.  I started calling at 8 am when it opened and was put on hold even then.  I didn't know it was spring ticket day.  It was on my "to-do list" yesterday, but I got busy.  Off to stub hub I guess...
