Former Huskers see themselves in visiting team

Mr. run-the-ball guy sure got his wish under the bright lights inside Memorial Stadium Saturday night. Only issue is that guy was a Badgers fan.
Instead of trying to be someone they’re not, Wisconsin ran the ball down the Huskers’ throat on its way to a 38-17 victory in a game that was much closer than that for the majority.
My college roommate and I watched helplessly from Section 40 as the Sconnies went back to the bare basics of football, calling running play after running play. Eventually, Wisconsin called 22 consecutive running plays in the second half as the Big Red continued to trip over its own feet.

Tigers attack too much for Aurora

The Aurora Huskies just never got over the hump in its match Thursday night with Hastings, losing in straight sets 25-22, 25-20 and 25-17. Hastings led for the majority of the night and every time Aurora challenged them for the lead, the Tigers would push them away with a string of points.

Aurora softball district action

It took nearly 3-1/2 hours to complete thanks in part to a lenghty rain delay, but the Aurora softball team fell in its opening round game at the B-5 district tournament to Northwest, 3-1. The Lady Huskies had chances in most innings, but 13 runners stranded on the bags proved to be the achillies heel for Aurora. In the first loser's bracket game,

Aurora rallied after a slow start to defeat Lexington 12-10.

The Lady Huskies and Adams Central needed extra innings, but the Patriots outlasted Aurora 9-8 after 10 innings. The loss eliminates Aurora from the B-5 district tournament.

The era of Narber

Just about the only thing Aurora’s Cal Narber didn’t do Thursday night in the Huskies’ 56-27 win on the road over Crete was kick the extra points and fill the water bottles.
The senior was monstrous in nearly every aspect, collecting 352 total yards and four touchdowns to spearhead the Husky attack over a game Cardinal squad. See print or e-edition for full report.

Huskers stay the course

Just compete, baby.
While those weren’t the exact words of Nebraska’s chancellor and president following the firing of Husker A.D. Shawn Eichorst a couple weeks ago, they were pretty close.
The message sent from high above was clear to all coaches on campus: you have the resources, the fan support and basically anything else needed to compete for Big Ten and national championships, so let’s get going.
Overall, I’d say things are off to a pretty good start.
Nebraska’s football team came away with a 22 point win at Illinois, a game they had to have to generate momentum for the next two weekends. All the Husker volleyball team did was take down three top five opponents in a span of eight days.
That’s crazy.
Some programs have never beaten a top five program ever, in any sport, but the Husker women took out Penn State, Minnesota and finally Wisconsin in five sets Saturday after going down 2-0. My ears are still ringing.

Can’t catch these Lady Huskies

A young Husky pup accompanied a pair of onlookers at the GISH Invite at the Centura Hills Golf Course last week. Its bright blue eyes and fuzzy exterior jumped with excitement with each new friend, its tongue hanging out the side of its jaw running up and down the spectator sideline taking in all the action. It was an ironic foreshadowing of what was about to take place on the 5K running course.
The Aurora cross country team members -- the girls team specifically -- have a distinct bullseye painted upon their backs. They know the expectation. They’re okay with it -- they embrace it.
The Lady Huskies lined up for the GISH meet with the pressures of bumping elbows with Class A’s Omaha South on the far end of the starting line. One individual class at Omaha South is nearly enough to encompass the entire high school population at Aurora.
Intimidating?
