  1. NCAA finally fixed the CWS schedule starting in 2022. Finals games on the second weekend is going to be a ton of fun.

  2. In my humble opinion OSU should have avoided having LBs try to guard the best WR CFB has seen in a while. Just a thought.

  3. Illinois just punted on 4th and Goal. B1G is hot today.

      i believe nebraska has done that before.   was it against Va. tech?    

  4. Mookie Betts is insanely good at baseball.

      Is that like a Mookie Blaylock?

      I think in the end, will better than Trout. Just a prediction, but Mookie was slow to get started and really didn’t pick up lots of hype til 2-3 years ago.  But my eyes don’t lie. 

  5. Damn. RIP Bob Gibson. The greatest athlete the state has ever produced.

      Yeah, tough days to be a Cardinals fan. Lost Brock and Gibson within a month.... and bombed out of the playoffs too

      Its wild that Gale Sayers and Bob Gibson pass in the same week.  Omaha had some world class athletes in the 60's.

      All from the same housing project. Johnny Rogers, too. There’s a book about it. I didn’t know that Gibson was a globetrotter. At least I think I heard that 

  6. '02 Rose Bowl against Miami on ACC Network if anyone wants to watch that beating again.

      I kinda liked watching. Last breath of a legend moment.

       

      I did forget just how stacked that Miami team was. 38 draft picks on the roster, 17 of them were first rounders!

      All I remember about it is that we didn’t deserve to be in that game in the first place....and we proved it in that game. The debacle in Boulder was just too much for me to get beyond.

      That 2001 Miami team was an all-time great. 

       

      You could tell they were just going through the motions. They knew they had that game from the start. They could have hung so many more points on us if they'd have kept the pedal mashed to the floor, but they were there to celebrate more than crank up points. 

  7. John Prine passing has hit me like a ton of bricks. If you haven't heard him, give it a chance. He is a pure American legend. Lake Marie might be my favorite of his, but the whole catalog is special.

      Guy Clark and Townes Van Zandt  now have someone else to play music with!

      It takes me 2 hours to get out of bed and run a mile in the morning.

  8. Wiscy putting another nail in Michigan's coffin with a fullback dive is a thing of beauty.

  9. Alex Gordon just pitched an inning.  Who says watching the Royals lose 16-3 is a waste of time.

  10. Gordon injured for tonight's Omaha game, bummer.

  11. Carsen Edwards has been incredible in the tournament.

    1. JJ Husker

      JJ Husker

      Yeah, he is fun to watch. Like that kid.

      One of the best games I've watched as a casual fan in quite some time.

       

      Unbelievable performance from Edwards. He is incredible. We were raving about how athletic he was - he could turn on the speed and drive to the hole with ease or seemingly effortlessly raise up and nail a deep 3. Matchup nightmare.

  12. Things will get very interesting if this Prohm to Bama smoke is real.  The Mayor going to say no to his constituents if that job is open?

    1. Huskball

      Huskball

      As much as it pains me to say it,  Huskers need to lose on Sunday. ISU needs to keep winning this weekend so Prohm is still involved with the team.

  13. Morant is the real deal.  Looks like Westbrook out there.

    1. FreddyIce

      FreddyIce

      Oh my gosh yes. If I’m running any program and have to choose between Morant and Zion, it would be a really tough call. Ballers.

  14. Tough loss for the Mavs, but a very successful season.  Largest crowd in history, most D1 conference and total wins.  Made the conference title game 2 out of 4 eligible years.  People have figured out they play a fun game, season tickets cost like 10 bucks a game and parking is free.  Program is trending up and if I am Summit league level player I would want to play at Baxter and live in Omaha over all those Dakota schools.  Proud Alum tonight, lets make the tourney next year.

      If UNO and Creighton both would have made the dance, imagine the weeping and gnashing of teeth throughout the rest of the state when UNL doesn't.

      I'm really thinking about making it a priority to enjoy the Mavs more next year.  Like you  said, they are relatively inexpensive to watch and makes for a fun family outing.  When I mentioned this to my wife she started to laugh at me because I always make fun of Creighton fans that also cheer for UNL.  I think it's different, she doesn't.  I think I'm right....

      We have played Creighton in basketball every season. UNO just became post-season eligible four seasons ago, and it definitely is different. I feel it is too. @funhusker

  15. Craig Smith's Utah St club giving Nevada a big challenge tonight.  Thruman from Omaha has been a beast and is keeping Nevada in it.

  16. Duke was sloppy all night, but has been a freight train these past few mins.

    1. Cdog923

      They inserted little-used Jordan Goldwire and amped up the defense. Outscored Louisville 35-10 over the last 9 minutes to erase a 23 point lead, the largest in K's tenure. 

  17. Well, at least we aren't Indiana.  Woof, Hoosiers.

    1. TonyStalloni

      TonyStalloni

      Two coaches gonna get relieved of duty at the end of the year?

    2. Toe

      Toe

      Damn, a 9-minute, 22-0 stretch? And I thought Tim Miles scoring droughts were bad!

  18. That was brutal, but KC has a decade of this ahead of us.  This feels like the 2014 Royals.  Lean from it and win next year,

      I'm a diehard Chiefs fan, and I can't help but think they'll never get there.

      As long as Mahomes is around I think they will have more cracks at it.

  19. Andy WTF are you doing with that timeout.

  20. You have got to be kidding me Philly.

    1. Danny Bateman

      Danny Bateman

      I feel bad for Bears fans but they're going to be good for a long time with this roster.

       

      Glad my cardiac Eagles can keep going one more week.

  21. Ohh jeez just saw Diaco on the OU sideline...makes sense.

  22. Woah.  Murray over Tua for Heisman.

      I agree with it.

      As do I. Dude is nuts to watch play!

      Yep, they got the right choice.  Tua put up similar numbers to Martinez.
