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.

Katie Ledecky is the most supreme athlete I have seen in the Olympics. She has shattered some world records when she wins her golds.

Tanner Lee has received two years to play at Nebraska. He can't play this year but watch for him to start next year.

Sean Marrion, who was Riley's QB at Oregon St., was 18/25, 147 yards, and 3 TD's last night vs the Rams.
The Rams came back and beat the Cowboys 28-24.

Joe Frazier's jock strap he wore in the "Fight of the Century" vs. Ali sold for $10,200 last night.

Joseph Lewis, five star wide receiver recruit, was in town to watch practice on an unofficial visit yesterday. He is listed the No. 3 receiver prospect in the country.

Olympics and Sports Shorts!

Serena Williams was ousted by 21-year old Elina Svitolina 6-4,6-3. Huge upset!

Bernie Sanders just bought a $600,000 summer home.

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

The reports are that QB transfer Tanner Lee is looking real good even though he can't play this year.

Michael Rose-Ivey hurt his knee today in the first practice with pads. Hopefully its nothing serious. Chris Jones experienced a lot of cramping today in practice.

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.

Lory Pugh becomes the youngest player ever to score a goal at the Olympics.

 Husker volleyball is back at practice and are working to defend their National Championship!
