Sorry South Texas Husker Fans 12 comments

If you or someone you know lives in the San Antonio area and were planning to watch the Nebraska v. Colorado game on television this Friday, I'm offering you my condolences. The ABC affiliate, KSAT, is going to be showing regularly scheduled programming like Dr. Phil and Oprah during that time slot instead of the Husker game. For all of you out there who had big plans to lounge in front of the game after your Black Friday shopping sprees, you have some work to do if you want to see that game on television.

What is “Average” for Nebraska? 7 comments

We spent a lot of time on this site last week discussing the word average. It started when Steve explored where Nebraska may or may not benefit from regressing to the mean in the upcoming season. That lead reader and frequent commenter, caveman99, to ask "What is average for a team with the expectations and talent level of Nebraska?" Intrigued by that question, I dipped a toe in the water and looked at the Huskers' defensive averages in three major categories over the past nine seasons and what they can tell us about expectations for the 2009 season.

Perhaps that started to answer the question of what is average for Nebraska, but it didn't address the larger question--what should be average for Nebraska?--so this weekend I took the plunge and looked nationally over the last five years at average rank in some major statistical categories.

Send Us Your Photos! 0 comments

Photographer One of the downsides of living outside Nebraska is that I can't make it to as many Husker games as I'd like. Lots of BRN readers scattered across the country are in the same boat. So if you are going to the Spring Game this weekend, let us live vicariously through lucky dog.

Send us your favorite photos from the Spring Game and we will post them here for all to see.

They could be photos of you and your buddies tailgating, your Grandma powering down a Runza, your kid getting an autograph from Harrison Beck, Coach Callahan giving you the bird thumbs up, or any of your other favorite Game Day sights.

Take them with your point-and-shoot, your high powered telephoto zoom SLR, your camera phone or your etch-a-sketch. Just take them. Lots of em.

And send them to .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).

We will post them right here next week. All of us jealous out-of-staters are waiting. Enjoy the game!

Update: Spring Game photos are here.
