Lady Huskies finish runner-up at conference

Article Image Alt Text

The Lady Huskies crossed the finish line of the conference meet at Columbus and walked away with the runner-up plaque.
“The girls ran a really nice race,” Coach Tony Sigler said. “For our number four runner that was the best race she’s ran all season and our one through three are getting to where they need to be. We’re not quite there yet, but they’re getting better every week, every day and it showed today with three of them getting medals.”

Where are we headed?

Article Image Alt Text

So is Nebraska’s new $155 football facility something for Husker fans to get excited about?
Is it a facility that is much needed, or simply much wanted?
Is it for student-athletes already on campus, or something to impress those 18-year-olds who happen to be taking a recruiting trip to Lincoln?
All fair questions given the fact that, bottom line, there’s so much money involved.
Now don’t get me wrong. I’m all in as long as all of the money comes from donations. That’s all fine and the players certainly deserve nothing but the best with all of the amount of time and energy they put in to the program 12 months a year.
And I realize that improvements need to be made. Ten years ago, Nebraska’s football complex and practice facility were regarded as one of the best, if not the best, in all of college football.
As it stands right now, the Husker program is fourth-to-last in football facilities, in the Big Ten alone.
Talk about an eye opener.

Wedding day is game day

Article Image Alt Text

A group of 20-some young people congregated around a 32-inch televison with a potential game-winning field goal at stake as if that particular kick was the most important thing to happen on Saturday.
Was it? I mean, the ink wasn’t yet dry on the marriage license.
My former college roommate tied the knot Saturday during the Nebraska-Northwestern game. I could take several jabs at him here, but I’ve done that enough.
The phrase of the weekend was, “It was his wedding day, but it’s also game day.”
The suits were great -- a nice gray, maroon and the personalized cuff links were a classy touch. But it was the black Huskers socks that tied the whole thing together. I mean, it’s game day, right?
The game started an hour before the ceremony as photos were wrapping up. As best man, I felt personally responsible to have the radio call on standby.
