Sport Shorts

The two greatest things going on in Nebraska the last few month is the Nebraska Volleyball team winning the NCAA tournament and Terrance "Bud" Crawford being the WBO junior welterweight champion. Both these champions look good into the future too.

The Nebraska volleyball team will have a bunch of players back in 2017. Then when you add a first team All-American transfer from LSU named Briana Holman the future looks very bright.

Bud Crawford is great and a huge promoter of Omaha and Nebraska and the Cornhuskers and the Creighton Bluejays on a national basis. Saturday Nebraska and all those above were mentioned in a very positive light by the HBO announcers and Crawford himself. Crawford fought at Madison Square Garden in New York for another defense of his title. He had a TKO in the 5th round against "Hammerin" Hank Lundy. Crawford goes to 28-0.  If you haven't watched him do so. So fun!!  Let's hope in fight in Omaha soon again.

Make sure you read the Shatel article on this blog. It's the read of the day!!

Is John Parella a good hire with coaching and recruiting ability?  I don't know for sure but it sure excites me. I think he could be a great fit for Nebraska. He has always had a passion to work hard himself and that should rub off on his players. Too bad Valentine won't be at Nebraska this fall.

With Nebraska football spring practice coming soon, it will be interesting to see who are the front runners for the offensive line other than Gates and Utter. They have a bunch of pretty good young guys coming up.

I know that spring ball doesn't mean a lot sometimes. I think the big news last spring was Wilbon at running back and AJ Bush at quarterback. Then the spring game came and all the talk was about Zac Darlington. None of them played much last season.

Who will be the back-up quarterback this year? What if Armstrong gets hurt? Will Patrick O'Brien be ready?

I saw Andrew White hit 35 vs Penn St a week ago. He had a pretty good chance of breaking the record of 42 but two offensive fouls cost him 6 points. The fouls were on other players at the same time he swishes a couple of 3's.

The Nebraska women have injuries and this is just killing their season.
