A Husker star may have been born in G.I.

by Dave Bradley

Geez, I just love Husker volleyball, but I guess I never thought of it before as a miracle cure.
After battling sinus and allergy issues for the past 12 days in a row, Saturday night at Grand Island’s Heartland Events Center rolled around and suddenly I felt just fine.
Yep, I must have had a bad case of Big Red Spring Fever.
Before the most fans ever to see a Husker volleyball match in Central Nebraska, coach John Cook’s team showed signs of what next fall could look like, dismantling Kansas State (an NCAA Tournament team a year ago) by scores of 25-13, 25-11 and 25-23.
And while it won’t count in the record books, the match went a long ways toward setting the stage for the 2015 Huskers, a team with a brand new setter in redshirt sophomore Kelly Hunter from Papillion.
She didn’t disappoint.

Sights and sounds from a perfect Husker Saturday

After a long week of rain, wind and even a little bit of snow, the clouds parted, temperatures warmed and there was a football game played in Lincoln Saturday afternoon.
And it couldn’t have come soon enough.
After a long winter of transition, Big Red and new head coach Mike Riley made their debut in front of the Husker faithful, a fan base that gets a new head man for the fourth time in 18 seasons.
I guess what goes around comes around, so maybe that’s why the program has much more of a ‘Tom Osborne-type’ feel to it. Respectful. Knowledgeable. Good teacher. Intense.
As far as the Xs and Os are concerned, it’s still way too early to tell, but this team does have talent, and in some positions, lots of it. However, there’s still a big learning curve for the players to overcome with the new system.
Some other spring game observations:
