“I really like the way we are playing heading into conference,” Aurora coach Craig Badura noted.

Looking to the future

For whatever reason, future Husker Big Ten football schedules fascinate me. They also drive me crazy.
Nothing about them makes sense, other than playing the same teams in the West Division every season. As for the East, it’s pretty much a crapshoot. What you see is what you get.
Case in point: Nebraska plays Ohio State the next three seasons to finish out a four-year home and away series, yet will only travel to face Michigan in 2018. Why no return trip in 2019? And why hasn’t Nebraska played them since 2013?
And this season, the Huskers travel to Penn State in November, yet there’s no sign of the Nittany Lions past that. The last time these two teams met was in 2013 in Happy Valley, Big Red pulling out a 23-20 overtime win immediately following the firing of Joe Paterno.

Huskies feel hurricane-like breeze in Beatrice Invite

Aurora golfers set records this week for low individual score, low team score, and perhaps, according to coach Craig Badura, for playing in some of the toughest conditions a Husky squad has ever faced.
From top to bottom, it was an all-out dominating performance from the Husky golf team Thursday at St. Paul.

New-look Huskers show off in spring game

Saturday’s 15th Husker spring football “practice session” was so much more than just that.
It was a chance for 78,000 plus to get their annual football fix coming off a disappointing bowl loss to Tennessee. It was an opportunity to see three new Nebraska quarterbacks with very strong and yes, accurate arms. And it was a chance for Aurora’s Todd Honas to once again step out onto the playing field at his “Z” receiving position, the outside receiver as the offense lines up.
In short, it was a chamber of commerce-type day that featured perhaps the most top notch recruiting targets in program history.
Just before the half, Todd had an opportunity to grab a 32-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Tristan Gebbia in the north end zone, but a questionable no-call on sophomore cornerback Eric Lee resulted in an incompletion.

Questions to be answered for Huskers

I’m usually ripe with anticipation in the weeks and now just days until Nebraska’s Spring Game.
This year, it’s different. I’m not any more or less thrilled than usual, but this year -- it’s the unknown that has my wheels turning.
For almost a full decade now and what seems like longer than that, we always knew who the quarterback was going to be. Not this year.
I don’t mean to say it like it’s a bad thing, but I’m excited now because we may actually have a quarterback whose thought process is throw first.
But, who’s it going to be? How about the gunslinger Tulane transfer Tanner Lee? The redshirt junior just fits the mold of a Mike Riley quarterback. He’s tall, the ball comes out of his hand snap-quick and he’s an excellent defense reader.
