Contributor to both CornNation and Husker Mike's Blasphemy.
Those 2010 and 2011 recruiting classes are filled with major misses on the defensive line, and Nebraska is now paying the price for those misses.
This game comes down to who runs the ball better; both teams have issues stopping the run, but are stout against the pass. Does this favor Nebraska with multiple rushing threats, or Georgia, with the tandem of talented freshmen running backs?
Step back from the edge of the cliff, if you follow recruiting. Nebraska may have just swiped a junior college defensive tackle away from Tennessee.
Huskers add a three game series with Northern Illinois (including a 2016 game at Soldier Field), and complete the 2014 schedule with a game against 1-AA McNeese State.
Ellis Johnson and former four-star quarterback recruit Anthony Alford are out after a winless 2012 season.
Dirk Chatelain of the World-Herald spends too much time stirring the pot of fan discontent and way too little time offering constructive criticism of Pelini's program. And that doesn't serve fans well in the end.
Television is still the driver, it appears. The Nebraska move was driven to bring the Husker brand into the Big Ten; Maryland and Rutgers were added to bring the Big Ten brand into new markets.
Bo Pelini was rumored to be pursuing this job, all the while Butch Jones was finalizing his agreement with Tennessee. Yet another unsubstantiated rumor, apparently.
Now that the "Airing of Grievances" is over, let's look at what the future of Nebraska football entails. And yes, that's a future that absolutely includes Bo Pelini.
So we have something to vote on, we're splitting up Nebraska's suckage. You'll have to choose what was the worst part of the worst.
It was a brutally awful performance by the Huskers, and it demands changes in the program. But those changes should NOT include a change at the top. You cannot fire a 10 win coach because of a couple of blowout losses.
After the Big Ten championship game, expect the rumor mill to warm up as Pelini's name briefly emerges for several jobs in the SEC.
Georgia Tech seems poised to be the 15th B1G team. Who would be #16? North Carolina, Virginia, Boston College, UConn? Or how about Miami?
It's a classic value proposition. It's a rematch and the game is a long drive for both fan bases. Hence, ticket sales are struggling.
Wisconsin has changed quarterbacks since September, but have lost three of their last four games - each in overtime.
Spencer Long was the only consensus all-Big Ten selection, but Taylor Martinez, Eric Martin, Daimion Stafford, and Brett Maher earned honors on one of the teams. But Kenny Bell was inexplicably left off the first team.
You get the sense that Wisconsin is hoping to bulldoze Nebraska on the ground in Indianapolis, and that's a very real possibility with that undersized line. So where is help going to come from?
On a weekend where half of the BCS Top 25 went down, there's plenty more to ridicule. How about Gene Smith, Brent Musburger, and Kirk Herbstreit
The victory sends Nebraska to the Big Ten championship game as west division champions for a rematch with the 7-5 Wisconsin Badgers. Beat Wisconsin again, and it's off to Pasadena again. That's a good season, no matter how you look at it.
After a two year experiment on Black Friday, next year's game between Nebraska and Iowa is scheduled for the Saturday after Thanksgiving. While Nebraska is in favor of moving the game to Black Friday, Iowa apparently does not.
Reports are that the Big Ten isn't done with realignment. Boston College and Virginia appear to be the leading candidates. But what about North Carolina and Duke?
Iowa will only be playing for pride in the Black Friday matchup. Have the Hawkeyes mentally quit already, or do the Hawkeyes have enough left in their system to claim bragging rights and embarrass their new conference foe to the west?
This week, there's no end of suckage to look at. Be forewarned...this week's nominations are a multimedia experience. Viewer discretion is advised.
While most Husker fans were preoccupied with the Minnesota game, the news that the Big Ten was negotiating with Maryland and Rutgers to join an a 14 team B1G conference. ESPN reports that...
It was a dominating performance by the Blackshirts. Minnesota only gained 177 yards on the afternoon, and didn't score until after Pelini emptied the bench. The Gophers went 1 for 13 on third down and were beaten soundly on both sides of the ball.
Nebraska officials are talking to Southern Miss about moving next season's game to Lincoln, while rumors about Miami breaking their agreement to play home-and-home are starting to swirl.
