Where do we go from here?

Sometimes it only takes a split second to send a message.
That appeared to be the case, and I’m guessing not many people inside the stadium on Friday afternoon saw it, but when Husker senior safety Joshua Kalu crossed the 50 yard line to chase down a football during warmups, he received an abrupt couple forearms to the chest from an Iowa player, the two then having to be separated by a few players and a couple coaches.
A couple hours later after repeated body and head blows, the Hawks scored a TKO in the third round (quarter), sending the Nebraska program to the canvas once again in a story all too familiar to Husker Nation.
Unlike Arkansas’ Brett Bielema, who was fired that same day before he could make it to the locker room, Mike Riley’s press conference sounded more like a political rally, making his own case for why he should remain in charge.

Drew Ott’s NFL dreams still a reality

Former Iowa Hawkeye star and Giltner Hornet standout Drew Ott was working feveriously during the harvest season out in the fields on the family farm driving the auger wagon when he got the phone call. It was a call Ott had waited and thought about for nearly two years.
On the other end of the line was a representative from the Indianapolis Colts. They wanted to fly him out to Indy for a workout and evaluate his measurables.
“It was the middle of the afternoon,” Ott said of the call. “I stopped and told my dad. We finished out the day working and got ready to leave the next day.”
