Fresno State Game Kicks off at 9:30 on CBSSN

The Mountain West conference announced that Nebraska's game against Fresno State will kick off at 9:30 pm central, and will be televised on the CBS Sports Network. That's not your local CBS affiliate, but a cable network usually on a sports tier.

We know enough not to read too much into what we see (other than coaches holding cats) in a spring game. So here's an abridged report card, knowing it's all meaningless in the end.

Bo Pelini: A Coach and His Cat

The running gag about Nebraska's head coach and a cat went to epic levels when Pelini and a cat led the Huskers onto the field for the Spring Game. It lightens up a tarnished public image for a coach beloved by his players.

Spring Game: Offense vs. Defense in 2014?

Injuries may force the alteration of the spring game format to offense vs. defense this year. But that wrinkle might add a little more intrigue to this year's game. The weather looks like it'll be warm, with a slight chance for showers.

Bo Pelini: Growing More Comfortable In Lincoln

Bo Pelini seems to be more relaxed these days. He's become more open to the media, and even pokes fun online at his reputation. Is Pelini finally getting comfortable with his job in terms of the public aspects of the job?

Former Husker Avery Moss Fined to Resolve Case

The former Nebraska defensive end was fined $500 to resolve his public indecency case from 2012. The only question remains whether the UNL administration will allow him to return to campus in 2015.

Tim Miles Proving Doubters Wrong

CN's Husker Mike is "that guy" who still held doubts about Tim Miles. Nebraska's run to the NCAA tournament goes a long way towards relieving those doubts.

Spring Preview: Linebackers

Linebacker play has been an issue since Nebraska moved to the Big Ten conference. But young players are starting to grasp their roles; are these guys ready to be a team strength instead of a weakness?

Will Cethan Carter or Sam Cotton emerge as sophomores to be playmakers? Will somebody else?

Spring Practice Report: Jamal Turner Back at QB?

Maybe it's just an experiment to utilize Turner as a wildcat quarterback, but he spent most of Nebraska's first spring football practice at quarterback. Also, Corey Cooper missed the practice with turf toe, creating an opening for Nate Gerry.

Alberts & Crouch Nominated to College Hall of Fame

While the former award-winning Huskers are on the ballot in 2014, they likely are ineligible to be elected due to the "no repeat inductees" rule.

Kenny Bell Made Creighton Fans Mad on Tuesday

Nebraska wide receiver Kenny Bell is a Husker fan of all sports. That didn't sit well with a few Jayskers with split allegiances, and a few got really ugly.

Spring Preview: Wide Receivers

Injuries limited the production of Kenny Bell and Jamal Turner in 2013. Going into last season, some thought the Husker receivers were the best in the Big Ten. Will they produce like that in 2014?

B1G Baseball Tournament Tickets On Sale Friday

Will Husker fans shatter the attendance records for the Big Ten Baseball Tournament this May in Omaha? With ticket prices starting at $20 for five days, that would seem to be a safe bet.

Is Nebrasketball Becoming A Real Thing?

Nebraska's late season surge is bringing interest back to the levels it enjoyed in the 1990's. Was interest in Nebraska basketball simply dormant? We may be about to learn.

Friday Night B1G Football: Good Idea or Bad?

The logistics of accommodating tens of thousands of fans at campus venues makes Friday night Big Ten football games a bad idea overall. That doesn't mean that the Big Ten should just limit themselves to Saturdays.

Bottom line: athletes should not be judged on the basis of who they love.

No Financial Windfall from B1G Move: Yet.

While Nebraska is doing better financially than they were in the Big XII, the other Big XII schools have since passed Nebraska in terms of league revenue. But that changes in 2017, when Nebraska becomes fully vested in BTN and a new TV deal begins.

NU Extends Assistant Football Coaches Contracts
