I love sports and watch pretty much any form of competition. If I understood Rugby, it would be my favorite sport. I am a Husker fan through and through and will cheer for them in everything (Did you know we have a successful women's bowling team? Now you do.) and hope our basketball team starts stepping it up a notch. College Football is amazing and really is the best season in all of sports.

Otherwise I cheer for the Buffalo Bills, Chicago Cubs, Pittsburgh Penguins, and New Orleans Hornets... So yeah, maybe living in small town Nebraska away from any professional teams made for some strange team choices... It happens.

B1G Rising: Getting Out of the Basketball Cellar


How does a team go from worst to... slightly above worst? Get a new coach, maybe snag a new arena, and claim a pelt. The rise of this year's cellar dwellers and the fall of Purdue.

It was my first taste of basketball at Pinnacle Bank Arena, and it was a good one. Nebraska overcame its own deficiencies and won a tough game over a ranked Ohio State. Some thoughts on the arena, the game, and my experience at the new digs.

Carry On: The Cruelty of Fandom


In a short span of time, you can be quickly reminded that being a fan is generally a one-sided affair with little return. After this week in Nebrasketball, I relearned that lesson.

The 2013 All Empire Team


We couldn't let awards season go much further without recognizing the best of the best. Well, at least we couldn't let things go on without breaking out the All Empire Team. Better than All-Galaxy every time.

The Delanies Part II: The (Sad Sad) Team Edition
