NFL Playoffs and other sports! Keith Jackson RIP!

Rest in Peace Keith Jackson!  My favorite announcer of all time!!  We also lost Dick Enberg recently!

Today the second round of the playoffs start. I predict the following:

Atlanta over Philadelphia
New England over Tennessee
Pittsburgh over Jacksonville  (I think this will be a close one)
New Orleans over Minnesota (Upset special-Offense wins over the defense in cold Minnesota)

JUCO receiver Mike Williams is enrolled at Nebraska and is ready to play some football!

Visitors for Nebraska football today that are predicted to commit at some time to NU are:
Cam' Ron Jones Safety 4 star Mansfield, Texas  95% Nebraska
Daniel Carson Defensive End 3 star Independence, MO 82% Nebraska
Braxton Clark Athlete 3 star Orlando Florida 67% Nebraska
Casey Rogers Defensive End 3 star Avon, Connecticut 50% Nebraska

Trae Young from Oklahoma had 43 points, 10 threes, 11 rebounds, and 7 assists.

The Big 10 has a great team in Michigan St and a team that is not too far behind in Purdue but then who comes next?  Probably Minnesota but Nebraska can't be too far behind them.  I'm thinking a NCAA tournament berth in 2018!!

Way to go Husker Volleyball!!

When a cowboy shoots at someone's feet to "make him dance" isn't he really saying, "Won't you teach me how to dance?" Jack Handey

The Cinderella story of the Nebraska Women's Volleyball team has been completed. They are the National Champions for 2017. This is the fifth championship for the Nebraska Cornhuskers! This last victory was our eighth appearance in the final game. Nebraska is 5-3 and 4-1 under John Cook.

The following is from Noteworthy Numbers in the Omaha World-Herald Sunday.

Nebraska was 12-3 against ranked opponents in 2017, including 7-0 against teams in the top 10 and 4-0 against teams in the top five.

John Cook is 66-14 in NCAA tournament at Nebraska. With the win, he became the fourth coach with four NCAA championships.

Annika Albrecht, a second team All-American, played her 21st career NCAA tournament match, which tied an NU record.

This year was the ninth time in 11 seasons that a Big Ten team has reached the NCAA final. Big Ten squads have gone 8-2 in those appearances with Penn State beating Wisconsin in 2013.
