Nebraska Prediction!

First of all kudos to the Nebraska men's basketball team. They played well but had a couple of key turnovers near the end of the game and just beat Dayton 70-68. Glyn Watson and Ed Morrow played real well. Also Tai Webster had a nice game. NU will play UCLA next. They beat Portland tonight. UCLA is No. 14 in the nation.

Ok tomorrow is the last regular season football game until bowl time. We play Iowa which has come on here lately and looks like a very tough foe. A couple of weeks ago they knocked off Michigan.

I have had a very difficult time of predicting the score of this game. I really want NU to win but I just feel Iowa will be the better team tomorrow. Can Tommy Armstrong go the whole game?

I can't take Iowa

Does Nebraska Have a Chance Friday?

Nebraska versus Iowa this Friday!!  Just three or four weeks ago this game looked like an easy win for the Huskers! The Huskers were undefeated and Penn State had beat Iowa 41-14. We didn't realize that Penn State was that good yet.

Earlier in the season South Dakota St had knocked off Iowa. Iowa struggled in a number of games but seemed to win except for Penn State and Wisconsin. When you look back now they had similar winning margins as Nebraska in many of the common opponents.

This week we have some problems with injured quarterbacks. Armstrong has a hamstring and Fyfe has just had surgery on a broken bone in his wrist. Armstrong looks to start but with a hamstring well who knows what will happen. Zac Darlington is getting prepared to play this week. This whole thing will mean a lot as to whether NU can win. Armstrong needs to be healthy to have our best chance. Can we win with Darlington or Fyfe? Yes, with some breaks and if the defense dominates, yes we can.

Can Fyfe match last week's performance. He played great especially in the first half but he also had two or three passes that could have been picked off and that would have changed the complexion of the game. Of course our defense could have had three or four picks too.

Iowa is very strong in special teams. Nebraska has been very inconsistent. If NU can put everything together with special teams this will greatly enhance our chance to win.

The defense needs to hold Iowa to no more than 14-17 points. I don't think we will score much over 21 points. In fact 21 points will probably win this game. Can the defense play like they did most of the game with Maryland but not give up any big plays. They will have to for us to win!

If Nebraska due for some good things?? They have to beat Iowa and Minnesota has to beat Wisconsin for us to play in the Big 10 Championship. Not great odds but its fun to have a chance!

Nebraska Prediction!

I have tried to get a feeling for this all day! I've went back and forth.

I think we will need to hold Corey Clement to under 100 yards today. That will be tough but it is possible. The defensive line seems to keep improving and the Wisconsin quarterbacks are great so if we play run defense well anything can happen.

Nebraska needs to get 350 plus yards on offense and keep turnovers to under two.

But the deciding factor for my prediction is Nebraska's offensive line. Injuries have hurt their performance running lately and we have to be able to run. That scares me.

Hope I am wrong but
Wisconsin 17
Nebraska 15

Go Big Red!!

Sunday, October 23, 2016

Sport Shorts!

NU won again!  I am really concerned about our offensive line. We could not run the ball at all until the 4th quarter. We were lucky to get a yard at times. I have a bunch of injuries and I am not sure if some of the reserves would be doing better than the hurt players. The coaches know best. Our defense overall played pretty good. Very good at times!

What's with the scores of some of these games?  Oklahoma 66 Texas Tech 59,  Rice 65 Prairie View 44, Utah 52 UCLA 45. Lots of scoring! The Big 10 seems to have some lower scoring games with some pretty good defense.

Nebraska moves to No. 7 in the polls. The last two undefeated teams in the Big 10 are Michigan and Nebraska.

Go Cubs!!

2. Michigan

Saturday, October 22, 2016

Nebraska Prediction!

I am really concerned with the injuries that we have right now. With Westercamp and Cethan carter out, you are talking maybe two of our three biggest threats on offense. Tommy Armstrong Jr is the third. He isn't 100%. With Knevel and possibly Gates out as offensive tackles this will put ore pressure on Armstrong to scramble even more. How many sacks would the opposing teams have if we didn't have a quarterback that can run?? So in the offense line, we only have two original starters left and we are hurting in depth really bad.

What happens if we have another lineman go down or Armstrong twist his ankle to where he can't play?  Not good. Nebraska has to have a game plan that will give us the least chance to get more injuries.

The good news is the defense looks as solid as we have had it in a long time. The defensive line is still giving up too much on the run but considering we lost our four top linemen from last year well they are doing exceptional.

David Blough, their quarterback, killed us last year. Can we contain him this year? We have trouble with that but we should do a much better job this year.We have to contain him to win. Keep him under 75-80 yards rushing.

Purdue has lost their coach. Interim head coach Gerad Parker is in charge today.Will this fire up the players or go the other way. I guess we will find that out.

Last week we were terrible on third down. We were 5-17. That HAS to get better this week.

I thin we can score three or four touchdowns considering no more injuries and we can kick a couple of field goals. So I will go with 31 points for Nebraska. I am going to be optimistic that we can hold them to 14 points.

FINAL
Nebraska 31
Purdue  14

Saturday, October 01, 2016

Nebraska Prediction

Will Nebraska be ready today or do they feel they have already won the game? I don't think so because last year has to be on their mind. What's the key to NU winning?

In the last tw games NU is giving up 6.2 yards per carry from the opposing team. They have alost 500 yards the past two games. Will this continue today? If it does this could be a close game.

If Nebraska holds Illinois to 150 yards or less rushing, NU wins.

If NU goes for 300 yards rushing we win today.

If NU has no injuries in the offensive line today, NU wins. We are pretty solid with our starters but we are lacking some depth right now. Gerald Foster is out for the year and Tanner Farmer is out for this game. It looks like we may have to burn a redshirt if we have an injury.

If NU has four sacks or more today, NU wins.

NU Victory!

Nebraska beat their first non-conference team since 2001. What an exciting game to be at. What a crowd and what a game!!!

My prediction was 34-31 and the final was 35-32. I had some keys to what it would take for us to win.

They were as follows:

1. Ozigbo needed to run 25 times for 175 yards. He ran 21 times for 95 yards.
2. Tommy Armstrong Jr would need to have no interceptions. He threw no interceptions.
3. Cethan Carter would need five receptions for 80 yards. He had five receptions for 48 yards.
4. No blocked punts and Pierson-El would need to run one punt back for 40 plus yards. He had a 45 yard punt return.
5. Royce Freeman would need to be held to under 100 yards. He had five attempts for 31 yards as he was injured early in the game.

Saturday, September 17, 2016

Nebraska Prediction

Will Nebraska continue to win the turnover war? They are a plus eight in turnovers and lead the nation in this stat.  If we get three or more turnovers we win the game.

Can Nebraska run on Oregon? I think this is a key to a Nebraska win. They can keep Oregon off the field. If we can run Ozigbo 25 times for 175 yards plus, we win.

How will Tommy Armstrong do today? He is better at the run but can pass on the run too. He is good but no dumb mistakes today. If Armstrong has no interceptions, we win.

Can Cethan Carter become part of the game today? He is very talented. I think if he catches five balls for 80 yards and a TD Nebraska wins.

Can the punt return and punting teams do a much better job today? No blocked punts today and if Pierson-El breaks one punt return for over 40 yards Nebraska wins.

If Nebraska holds Freeman the Oregon running back to 100 yards or less Nebraska wins.

If there is a lot of running it could keep the score down some.

Nebraska 34
Oregon 31

Sports Shorts!

Nebraska has outscored their opponents in the 4th quarter 50-0 so far this year. Great finishers and that is an indication they are well conditioned. Now we have Oregon this week and we have a good chance to win that one.

Nebraska is 29th in the AP poll. If they keep winning they will get there.

Congrats to Adam Carriker who is now a member of the Nebraska Hall of Fame.

Omaha North and Bellevue West are No. 1 and 2 in Top 10 this week.

Nebraska is a PLUS 7 in turnovers this year.

Did anybody see Coach Cavanaugh and Gates go at it after Gates got a flag thorn on him?

Nebraska is the early favorite for the game this weekend. Should be a great one!!

Nebraska is tied with Ohio State in turnover margin but they are last in net punting.




Tuesday, September 06, 2016

Sport Shorts!

Nebraska won 43-10 Saturday night in a game that will be remembered for the honor paid to Sam Foltz. You have heard all about it but being there was very emotional. Tearful!

The Nebraska defense played pretty well and with Nathan Gerry and Antonio Reed coming back this week we should be stronger. Keiron Williams was exceptional although the coaches said he was out of position now and then. The defensive line played pretty well I thought. We have a lot of talent at linebacker. Chris Jones had a good game also.

On offense it just didn't fill right. They ran the ball for almost 300 yards but the passing just didn't seem to click reak well. Alonzo Moore had a great game catching a 57 yard TD. Devine Ozigbo and Tre Bryant looked very good.

We should see some major improvement in game two.

Wyoming will be a tougher opponent this week. They have a 6'5" quarterback in Josh Allen. He can throw the ball real well. Their tailback Brian Hill is pretty good too.

Will Compton and Niles Paul have been named team captains for the Washington Redskins.

Nebraska prediction!!

Today is the day!  Nebraska football starts again.

Tonight we play Fresno State. It will be a good team to play in the first game.

Our key to how good we play is our offensive and defensive lines. Also will Armstrong limit mistakes or will Ryker Fyfe enter the game today. I think Armstrong will shine but he may make an error or two with turnovers. The offensive line play will be interesting with Sam Hahn taking over at left guard. I am interested in how Knevel plays at right tackle. If he can dominate I think we will be good today.

What about our defensive line? The starting unit should be pretty good and then from there we will see. Sounds like we will see some 3-4 defensive which will go to our strengths. If Nebraska can get four or five sacks today that would be very encouraging. It will be fun to see how some of the younger defensive subs play. Who will step up?

Fresno State will be playing an upbeat tempo on offense and I am anxious to see how our substitute safeties do. Gerry and Antonio Reed will not play today. I am not sure if Reed would have started but he is close.

Special teams will be key. Don't expect the world from our new punter. He is a freshman playing in his first game and he will have some moments I am sure.

I am interested in Tre Bryant and Person-El returning kickoffs and punts.

I think that Fresno State will break some big plays here and there but NU will win! Chason Virgil likes to throw but on this night NU will run and run!

Nebraska 45

NU Football Less Than Three Weeks away!

Its been said that the Nebraska football team had a nice crisp practice yesterday. There were highlights on both defense and offense. 

Alonzo Moore caught a nice pass from Tommy Armstrong and faked Chris Jones out and ran for a few yards. Steve Sipple (Lincoln Journal Star) and Mike'L Severe (TBL Omaha) have both said that Jones is the best cornerback that NU has right now. Armstrong also made a nice 27 yards touchdown run around the outside. They say Armstrong is in supreme condition and looks to be NU's best runner.

It's been said that the linebackers have been playing well especially Josh Banderas, Dedrick Young, and Marcus Newby.

It looks right now from many sources that true freshmen Tre Bryant (running Back) and Derrion Grim (Wide receiver) will be playing this year.

Sipple mentioned in his article that the pass rush was  OK which is very encouraging.

The Omaha Storm Chasers have had a tough ending to this season. Their record has dropped to 51-67. The KC Royals are 7.5 games out. They have to get on a hot streak to pull out a playoff bid. Time is running out.

The Cubs are ahead of the Cardinals by 13 games.

Michael Phelps is simply amazing!  What a career!! 23 gold medals!! Phelps was only 15 in his first Olympics in 2000.

Gretna's Mick Stoltenburg is a frontrunner to start at defensive tackle.

Langsdorf said that freshman wide receiver Derrion Grim is a strong candidate to play this year.

Newby, Wilbon, and Ozigbo are all pretty even and they may be used in specific situations this year. Look to Ozigbo to win the starting job but they will all play I think.

Coach Keith Williams says he doesn't see Stanley Morgan returning kicks this year again. So I wonder who they are thinking about for that role?  Tre Bryant?

Langsdorf praised Sam Cotton and wide receiver Tyler Hoppes. Is Hoppes our next Brandon Riley?

At practice today Armstrong threw an interception on the 2nd play of the session. Chris Jones got the pick. Armstrong didn't have a good day.

Nebraska football is right in the mix for 5-star Louisiana prep Devonta Smith. He is the No. 2 receiver in the country. Alabama, Miami, Mississippi St. and Nebraska are finalists.

Today is Coach Riley's birthday!


Tuesday, July 05, 2016

Sports Central!

So what do you think about Kevin Durant going to the Warriors? I think its pretty neat although I do worry too much talent is going to the top teams and the bottom teams are watered down quite a bit!

The Dallas Mavericks are putting together their only little dynasty by adding Andrew Bogut, Harrison Barnes, and Curry. That's Seth Curry! With Dirk Norwitzki they could move up to challenge.

The Chicago Cubs are slated to join the 1963 Cardinals as only teams in MLB history to start all 4 infielders in All-Star Gamr.

Eric Hosmer will be first Royals' first baseman to start the All-Star Game since John Mayberry in 1973.

The Warriors now have the last three NBA MVP's. Curry has won two of those.

Joey Chestnut ate 70 hot dogs and buns to win the hot dog eating contest and now has the top five performances of all time.

Pay Gasol is going to the Spurs.

Nebraska's best recruits that they have a pretty good chance of getting are five star Darnay Holmes(CB), Foster Sarell (OT), and Joseph Lewis (WR). If we could get two of these its great!!

Bubba Starling is playing in Omaha. So far in AA he has had a pretty bad season batting .185 but his first game in Omaha Sunday he hits a home run and a double. Bubba was a Husker for a moment before signing a baseball contract with the Royals.

What's going on....??

What's going on with Nebraska basketball? Andrew White is requesting a transfer from Nebraska? We were happy a month ago when he decided not to enter the NBA draft. There were some signs that something wasn't right when he said he wanted a college that would help him develop his skills so that he could reach his goal of being in the NBA next year. He didn't act like he thought Miles and the coaching staff could do that for him or at least he didn't give them a vote of confidence.

So now it looks like it could be two years before we get these youngsters build into a team to qualify for the NCAA tournament.

We need some good things to happen in the Nebraska basketball program.

What's going on with Nebraska football? We are getting some of the best players in the nation visiting Nebraska.

At Friday Night Lights they had a 2018 prospect Brandon Radley-Hiles of Calabasas, California. He dominated some of the best wide receiver prospects in the country.  They include Tyjon Lindsay, a WR from Grona, California interested in Nebraska and Joseph Lewis from Los Angeles.

Sam McKewon of the OWH says Lindsay reminds you of Monte Harrison the All-Pro who used to play for the Indianapolis Colts. Lewis is a five star prospect. 

There were many many great players at Nebraska Friday night.  See Sam McKewon 9Omaha World Herald) article regarding this.

Nebraska baseball done for the year!

Nebraska was beaten by West Carolina on Saturday 4-1. This is the same team Clemson scored 39 runs in two games in this Regional. What happened? Well they had plenty of chances filling the bases the first two innings walking six batters but scored o points. They hit into four double plays which just killed them. Baseball, like all sports is a game of momentum and Nebraska didn't have any.

I wonder if some of the underclassmen who haven't hit well will now reconsider not going pro yet?

I have been a fan of Muhammed Ali since day one. Most love him him today but back in the 60's Ali had the same reputation as Donald Trump. A lot of people hated him and a few less loved him. Over the years his reputation has improved tremendously.

Muhammed Ali was like Trump in the way he used his words to downgrade people. Ali was a master, a leader, and the greatest boxer of all time!!!

I can remember the night he fought Sonny Liston. We found out the results the next day by radio as there wasn't much sports on TV in 1964. The big talk for that fight was that he couldn't have beaten Liston. It had to be rigged.

On the other side of things I remember the Larry Holmes fight in 1980 and Holmes pretty much toyed with Ali as he was getting slower with his punch. I remember Larry Holmes crying after that fight.
