Lance Thorell wins the Bobby Reynolds award!

Congratulations to Lance Thorell for winning the Bobby Reynolds award!! Past recent winners include Joe Ganz and Matt O'Hanlon.

Who was Bobby Reynolds? Bobby Reynolds was known as "Mr. Touchdown". Reynolds grew up in Grand Island. His grandfather's construction company built the university's student union, library, and engineering hall.

Reynolds was 5'11" and 175 lbs and had a remarkable year in 1950. He rushed for a school record 1.342 yards, averaging 7 yards a carry. He scored 22 touchdowns and kicked 25 extra points, leading the nation in scoring with 157 points. He earned All-American honors.

In 1950, Nebraska had their first winning season in 10 years at 6-2-1.

In his junior year, Reynolds suffered a separated shoulder. He later got lime in his eye which damaged his cornea. As a junior, Reynolds only hit the end zone twice. His senior season he had more injuries when he separated his other shoulder.

Reynolds finished his final two years playing in only 13 games, rushing for 854 yards, scoring six touchdowns and 54 points.

Even with the injuries, Reynolds held rushing and scoring records for a few years.

Way to go Lance. Great work!

Marvin Sanders is joining Carl Pelini

Unless something comes up soon, Marvin Sanders will be back in coaching as defensive coordinator at Florida Atlantic.

The Nebraska men's basketball team had a huge win at TCU Saturday night. Bo Spencer hit a 60 footer before half to get Nebraska to within seven points. Nebraska was behind by ten points at one point but came back behind Spencer to take the win. Two true freshmen contributed in the game, David Rivers and Joniah Moore. Final Nebraska 69 TCU 57.

The Nebraska women had two that scored over 30 points in a game Saturday night. First time ever this has happened. Lindsay Moore had 31 and Jordan Hooper had 32 points. Nebraska beat Northern Arizona in 2OTs 97-88.

Nebraska will play South Carolina in the Capital One Bowl!

Nebraska will make its 48th all-time bowl appearance and its second appearance in the Capital One Bowl on Jan. 2 when Nebraska takes on South Carolina at Florida Citrus Bowl Stadium in Orlando, Fla.

Kickoff for the 2012 Capital One Bowl is set for 1 p.m. EST (Noon CST) on Jan. 2. ESPN will provide the telecast to a national audience.

The 9-3 Huskers are making their fourth straight bowl trip under Head Coach Bo Pelini and Nebraska’s 48 bowl appearances rank in a tie for the fourth-most of any school in the country. The Huskers have won 10 of their last 15 bowl games.

Steve Spurrier is the coach for South Carolina. I am sure he will be anxious to play this game. Connor Shaw is the QB for South Carolina. He is a mobile quarterback much like Russell Wilson, Braxton Miller, and Dennard Robinson. He is their second leading rusher.

It will be a tough game and Nebraska is fortunate to have some time to heal.
