is what everyone is talking about in Husker
football this week. How will he do? Can he spark the Huskers to another win before this unpredictably horrible season comes to a close? Only time will tell - I seriously can't wait for Saturday's game.
The one part of Ganz's game that I'm most excited about is his running ability. Husker National has only seen him in limited snaps this season so no one really knows how effective Ganz will be. I sort of see him as a more… Continue

Since Keller is out for the Huskers
, Joe Ganz
is getting the nod to start for Nebraska. Everyone seems to have only great things to say about him, so I'm pretty excited to see what he can do on the field!
Callahan and the crew are supporting Ganz all the way, saying he is ready to make an impact on the field. I hope he is too, maybe this quarterback change is something that might spark the Huskers to pull out a win or two in their remaining two games. Only two more wins… Continue

While stumbling around the internet, I came upon this Bill Callahan Husker Rumor
! Naturally, none of this can be proven and it is only a rumor. It's pretty interesting and helps to pass the time while there isn't any football on tonight. No NFL Sunday night game:(
I know a guy that is friends with Bill Callahans wife and apparently
since St. Louis' offense is having so much trouble the boosters are
working a deal that would allow Callahan to get out of his… Continue

I just got done watching the best Husker Game of the Year! Even though we lost, there was absolutely NOTHING to be ashamed of. We came into the game 21 point underdogs and were in the game til the 4th quarter. A 3 point loss on the road to a ranked team equals an OUTSTANDING effort by the good guys.
From the outset of the 1st quarter NU outplayed the Horns, faltering only in the 4th quarter where the Defense started letting Charles run free. The Defense blitzed a few too many times… Continue

I was watching the news last night and they reported that Husker fans
are on a steep decline, concerning traveling to away games
. They said that they are seeing about 10% of the normal husker fan business than they are used to. For instance, they usually can fill up 7 to 8 buses when traveling to away games, like the Texas game this Saturday.
Guess how many they are filling this year?
ONE. Executive travel said that they have only had 15
people sign up… Continue

Callahan is great at bringing in recruits. His problem, and his staff’s problem, is coaching the recruits once they get here.
One of the first things he and Pederson did was get rid of the walk-on program. Essentially, what that did was take the team away from… Continue

Strong teams have a strong defense first. Perhaps this defense is on the right track now that the players have turned in their blackshirts. It must have hurt to turn those back in. It shows they have an understanding of the tradition, the blackshirts dictated. To me it says this group of men are on the right track to improving. To earning their blackshirts back. Will it happen this year, there is not much time left, but I think the talent is there. The only question I have is the desire there.

Another loss for our aimless Huskers. Although the Defense did show up for the first half, they were crushed in the 2nd. That Triple Option thing REALLY WORKS!! Holy Cow, we stopped using that offense, what 4 years ago, and somebody is still using it effectively??? They have the 8th rated rushing offense in the country. Didn't we used to dominate in that catagory a few years ago? Of course we couldn't pass for 2000 yards in a season if the other team stayed off the… Continue

The Cornhusker football season ticket holders are standing firm on keeping their season tickets. They are in it for the long haul (post Callahan area, I presume)

I only got to listen to a little bit of the Husker game on the radio today, but it seemed like the team played with a more desire than they had been playing with. Even though we lost, I think they showed a little improvement. What does anybody else think?
I thought we'd keep the game a little closer too, we were favorites by 2 points. So much for that...

Now that TO has taken the reigns of the athletic department, his focus will mostly be on the Football team as the rest of the programs seem to be pretty darn good. His major obstacle will be getting Callahans support, and as yet I haven't even heard him mention Tom's name in a news conference. Not the best way to show respect to the man who put this team into orbit with 3 championships to his credit.
Ever since the firing and bringing in Tom, I've been scanning the net, just like all… Continue

- Yeah. Jazzman Avila. Homegrown talent! Just announced he has decided to try out as a promising strong safety at NEBRASKA! He did not play this last year due to a religious mission. But he has now been training in full old style form as a D-1 athlete and is ready to reinstall some old school back into the HUSKERS! And He is also wiling to try his
impenetrable skills out as fullback. He has claimed that Thomas Lawson,
our starting fullback, has no guile or…

The Huskers gave up wearing their Blackshirts
at practice yesterday.
Husker senior Ben Eisenhart said it was a unanimous decision by the players.
"If you give up 600 yards, you shouldn't have Blackshirts on," Eisenhart said.
The Huskers will prepare this week "blackshirtless" for Saturday's game against Texas A&M. The game will start at 1:05 p.m.…

I didn't get to see who wrote this but, it is fantastic!
Tom Osborne's program at Nebraska was not "one of the best" in the nation. It was the best, period. The talking heads and teleprompter readers love to rattle off names like Michigan, Ohio State, and USC. Looking back at the last quarter of a century, nobody dominated college football like Nebraska. Osborne won three national titles in four seasons, and came within a single play of winning four straight. His Husker dynasty… Continue

Harvey Perlman announces that he will look for a Steve Pederson replacement, as fast and smartly as possible. (I'm listening to the press conference right now). He said that he will consult former Nebraska coach Tom Osborne in the search for a new Husker Athletic Director. More Husker news to come....

It's been 24 hours since the devastation that happened yesterday. I'm still not sure if it has totally sunk in. OUR Nebraska Cornhuskers
played absolutely terrible
. After reading the papers, watching the news, and listening to a few sports talk stations I am hearing all of these amazing statistics that further prove how awful the Huskers have been playing. How is a dedicated Husker fan supposed to react?
Are we supposed to point the finger and say that we need a "regime… Continue
