2014 Highlights

2014 was a very eventful year for NU and Nebraska sports. It was easy to pick No. 1 highlight but then after that it became harder. These were the feel good moments!

1. Bud Crawford defends his WBO Lightweight Championship against Yurkorkis Gamboa at the CenturyLink in Omaha. In June I saw the best sporting event I have ever witnesses when my brother and I went to this boxing event. The crowd was absolutely crazy. Michael Buffer is better in person than he is on TV. Unbelievable. Crawford won in a knockout in the ninth round in a spectacular ending!! The boxing crowd likes to have fun! I am so glad I attended this. I had been following Terrance Crawford for the past few years and now he is the champ!  He fount in November again and won in a decision against Raymundo Beltran. Watched that one on TV but it didn't have the pizzazz as the first fight.

2. Nebraska beating Wisconsin in a No Sit Sunday crowd on March 9th to go to the NCAA tournament. Nebraska upset No. 9 Wisconsin 77-68. Terran Petteway had 26 points and 10 rebounds and this crowd cheered NU on the whole game. There was no quiet moments. NU finished the year 19-11. NU went to the NCAA tournament for the first time in many years. Also Mike Peltz proposed before the game.

3, Creighton beating Providence at the CenturyLink. Creighton beat Providence 88-73. This was the first Creighton game I have been to at CenturyLink. They have great fans. Doug McDermott hit for 45. This was his last home game. He is part of the 3000 club. It was Senior Night. Creighton was headed to the NCAA tournament. Great atmosphere.

4. Ameer Abdullah breaking six, seven, eight tackles for NU to beat McNeese St. in the final seconds. Tremendous run by Abdullah. Great win at the end in a game that wasn't supposed to be close. Relief and a victory.

5. Nebraska volleyball beating Washington on their home floor in the NCAA tournament. I watched this one on the tube but I couldn't leave the room. Great young team!

Nebraska has hired Andy Vaughn to be the Director of Football and Recruiting Operations. He comes from Nevada and has ties to Clemson.

Jack McVeigh is a 6'8" shooting guard is making an official visit to Nebraska. He played for the Australian U-18 national team and averaged 24.3 points and 10.3 rebounds. He is also making an official visit to LSU. It looks like it is down to those two teams.

Akoy Agau has two years of eligibility left and will have an unofficial visit to Nebraska. He has had visits to Marquette and Missouri-Kansas City and has Georgetown and Wichita State as teams he wants to look at. He was on the Louisville team but decided recently to transfer. He has to sit out two semesters. So he could start to play a year from now if he gets enrolled at Nebraska this semester.

Suh has been suspended from the first playoff game but is appealing.

The Minnesota Timberwolves is the worst team in the NBA.

The Boston Celtics are one of the worst teams!

The Lakers are in the bottom ten teams of the NBA.

The Miami Heat are now in the bottom half of the NBA,

The best team right now could be the Houston Rockets!

Michigan has hired Jim Harbaugh. Mike Riley was his head coach at San Diego.

Jimmy Butler continues to put up huge numbers for the Bulls.

Dallas had the second fewest sacks in the NFL this year. Way to coach Bill Callahan.

Sports Shorts! Rex Burkhead has a touchdown!

Rex Burkhead  had three carries for fourteen yards today. He also scored on a ten yard touchdown. YES!!!

Nebraska men's basketball pulled out a stressful, error filled game last night versus Cincinnati. It was so bad that I almost turned the channel. Nebraska is definitely not big and they don't have much for shooters after Petteway and Shields and sometimes Pitchford. But they do fight and claw and hustle. That's what won them the game last night in two overtimes.

Now the really sad projection. Pomeroy, which rates by computer the college football teams, has Nebraska at No. 84. They have dropped twenty places in the past week. Pomeroy projects Nebraska to have a record of 13-15 and going 7-11 in the Big 10.  Right now that seems believable but Coach Miles makes them better every year so let's see what happens this year.

NU's next game is December 23rd at Hawaii. Hawaii is 6-3. NU should win that game!

Kudos to the NU volleyball team.  They were great against Washington. They weren't too bad against BYU but BYU swept in three.  NU is very young. Next year they will start the season rated pretty high I would guess.

Calvin Strong leads the World-Herald's All Nebraska team. In fact this will be his third year in a row to win All Nebraska running back.Will Nebraska offer him a scholarship now? Talent wise he looks a lock-in so there must be some other problems he is having for us not to jump on him. Right now Strong is a South Dakota recruit.

CJ Johnson is a wide receiver at Bellevue West. He is a recruit at Wyoming. Nebraska may try to get him now also. We will see.

Johnny Manziel was bad today!!  Only looks to get better.

Four star rated offensive guard Jalin Barnett has Nebraska now his favorite school to attend. Oklahoma is also recruiting him. Jalin is rated 136th overall player in the country , seventh at his position and the 3rd best player in Oklahoma. Barnett is from Lawton, Oklahoma. He visited NU this weekend.

Tight end recruit Matt Snyder from San Ramon, California is committed to Oregon St. but visited NU this weekend. Snyder was blown away by the visit. Snyder has a three star rating and has other offers from California, Colorado St., Fresno St., and Utah St.

Adrienne Talan visited NU this weekend. He is a three star outside linebacker out of Pembroke Pine, Florida. His offers are from Oregon St., Temple, and Nebraska.

Three star Nick Thomas visited this weekend from Bradenton, Florida. He is an inside linebacker. He has committed to Wisconsin but is looking now with the coaching change. He has offers from Hawaii and Nevada also. He plans to make a decision by the end of the week.

Cincinnati coach Mick Cronin said that Nebraska, outside of Louisville, has the best arena he has been in. Awesome praise

Huskers Begin Holiday Bowl Practice

Huskers Begin Holiday Bowl Practice

Nebraska men's Basketball tonight!!

Prediction:

Nebraska plays Incarnate Word who are 5-1 with their only loss to UTEP 81-65. I think tonight will be a similar score but Nebraska has to get more than two scorers shooting well. Teams are overplaying Shields and Petteway and challenging the rest of the team to go ahead and shoot. Against Creighton there wasn;t really anybody else. Yes, Rivers hit a few points but we have to get better. I thought Abraham was a plus when he was in the game. Wished he would have played more in the second half because Creighton dominated us underneath.

Nebraska 82
Incarnate Word 67

Husker Win Streak Comes to an End in Five Sets at No. 11 Illinois

Happy Thanksgiving! A Nebraska prediction!

Happy Thanksgiving to all!! Give thanks to Lord for everything we have!

The greatest sporting event I have ever been to was the Bud Crawford fight at the CenturyLink a few months ago. Just electric and the crowd was amazing.

Well this Saturday Crawford defends his WBO  and Ring lightweight title in Omaha this Saturday. I really wished I was going again!! Crawford (24-0 17 knockouts) fights Ray Beltran (29-6 17 knockouts). Crawford should win this fight and he is so fun to watch. Catch it on HBO Saturday night. Great entertainment!!

It was a downer last Saturday when Minnesota beat the Nebraska football team. I rewatched the game and there were probably five or six plays that went Minnesota's way and if one of them would have went Nebraska, they would have won. A lot of things went right for Minnesota and give them credit they are a good football team.

Nebraska is a good football team too but not great. Lots of talk this week to get rid of the coaching staff. Either Pelini and the entire staff need to go or at least some of the staff. I won't make a judgement either way. But who are we going to get to come to Nebraska to fight the recruiting disadvantage we have here in Nebraska? Just a question. We can't push a button and say you come here. There aren't a lot of coaches who some people think would be better than what we have that really want to recruit at a disadvantage like we have.

After the Nebraska football team's loss the men's basketball team took a hit at Rhode Island. I think the NU men's basketball team is very good but until we get a good big guy or two underneath we won't hit the upper ten teams in the nation. But we can play against most everybody and compete.

So we have a disadvantage in recruiting because of population and distance so why didn't we grab Drew Ott from Gilter. Everything pointed to the fact he was going to be good. Get the great ones in Nebraska when we have a chance. Ott is Iowa's top defensive lineman and will be in the NFL soon.

Also I am not sure of Calvin Strong's pro and cons but as far as talent I think Nebraska should grab him. Looks like he is going to South Dakota for school but he looks amazing.

The Nebraska volleyball team dropped a five set game to Illinois last night. Illinois was rated No.11 and Nebraska No.10. It was at Illinois.

In high school football, GI and Kearney ended up being rated 6th and 10th respectively. McCook ended up 4th in Class B with Cozad No. 6 in C-1. There were no area teams in C-2 rated but in Eight Man-1 Elm Creek was rated 3rd. Again there were no area schools rate in Eight Man-2.

Pro football schedule today:
Chicago at Detroit  11:30 am
Philadelphia at Dallas 3:30 pm
Seattle at San Fransisco 7:20 pm

College football
TCU at Texas 6:30 pm  Watch for Texas to pull the upset!!!!!!!
LSU at Texas A & M

Nebraska plays Iowa tomorrow and it comes down to these teams are both just matched equally. Nebraska is a little better team but Iowa has the home field advantage. It is also possible that neither Kenny Bell or Randy Gregory will be on the field Friday for NU. Probably won't end in a tie so I am going with this:

Two Overtimes
Nebraska 37
Iowa 31

Can Nebraska Rebound?

Nebraska played well last week for one and a half quarters and then Melvin Gordon ran for 42 yards and Nebraska seemed to lose its confidence on that play. Can we rebound this week? The point spread is 10 points. Nebraska is favored. Minnesota looked good against Ohio St. They are for real but so is Nebraska, well until last weekend.

Safety D.J. Singleton has left the Nebraska football team. He was a potential starter for next year or at least he may have been the first sub in after Gerry and Alexander.

Texas basketball beat Iowa tonight 71-57.

Creighton beat Oklahoma last night!  That was a surprise to me. Looks like they have some great players again.

Kobe Bryant is now #4 in all time scoring in the NBA. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar had 38,387, Karl Malone 36,928, Michael Jordan 32,292, and Kobe Bryant has 32,001.

San Diego has traded OF Reymond Fuentes to the KC Royals for pitcher Kyle Bartsch. Fuentes comes from Double A and Bartsch from A ball.

KC's Billy Butler is going to the Oakland A's and has signed a three year deal.

Cal-State Bakersfield missed the first 20 shots from the field before making one against San Diego St. The teams combined to start 4 for 40 from the field.

K-State beat West Virginia tonight in football 26-20.

It looks like Oakland is going to win but there is 1:30 left to play.

Sport Shorts

If the Royals when on Tuesday they tie for the most consecutive wins in a playoff with 10.  The other two teams were both Yankee squads. The Royals are hot and everybody is peaking at the right time.

Nebraska football playoffs
Gretna is the only team in Class B that is unbeaten. The top four teams in Class B are all in the same district. Three of those teams can make it to the playoffs. The top four teams are Gretna, Elkhorn, Omaha Scutt, and Elkhorn South.

Omaha North and Millard North are bot undefeated in Class A.

The C-1 playoffs should be very exciting with four teams undefeated and then you have a team like GI Central Catholic who can beat anybody at 6-2 and rated 8th.

Eight Man-1 has seven undefeated teams yet.

Lee Barfknecht has Nebraska rated third in the Big 10 behind Michigan St. and Ohio St. Probably a pretty fair rating right now.

Rutgers, our opponent this week is 5-2 and he has them rated 9th . Nebraska is a 17 point favorite over Rutgers.

Mississippi St. No. 1!!! Can't even believe it.

Nebraska has moved up to 16th.

BTN's special documentary "Unbeaten" is absolutely one of the greatest shows I have seen. It is on Brook Berringer and it is so well done.

I see Barrett Ruud is helping coach the defense for the Cornhuskers. I am sure he is a huge asset to the program.

Right now Michigan St. 3-0 (East) and Minnesota 3-0 (West) lead the divisions of the Big 10.

UNK won their second game of the year beating Lindenwood 31-13. It marked the 100th career win for Coach Darrell Morris.

How good is DeMornay Pierson-El. He is so fast.

Ameer Abdullah is now the No. 2 all time rusher at Nebraska. He has 4,001 yards and just passed Ahman Green with 3,880.

Could it be possible that Shavon Shields is as good or better than Terran Petteway? They are both very good.

Walter Pitchford will be key to Nebraska taking it to the next level this year. When he played well last year, Nebraska won.
