Newmyer in as Hawks’ floor general

It’s a new era in the Hampton basketball program, and first-year head coach Sam Newmyer is at the forefront.
Fresh off graduating in the spring from Doane College, the 23-year old Wilber, Neb. native is ready for the challenge of leading a new group of players on a team that went 6-14 last year under last year’s coach, Jesse Flanagan.

Husker Nation saw some good Pelini, some bad Pelini

by Dave Bradley

Out of control.
Unfortunately, that’s how I’ll remember the Bo Pelini era at Nebraska.
Out of control, as in lopsided Husker losses when they mattered most.
Out of control, as in Bo’s behavior to officials when things didn’t go the Husker’s way.
Out of control, as in his behavior, at times, to his own players and assistant coaches.
And out of control, as in the crazy, wild, and inconsistent final product he put on the field in scarlet and cream, at times something close to yet at others something far less than championship football.
I do remember when Bo was hired. All of Husker Nation, including myself, was energized and couldn’t wait for the first game. I was thankful he came back to Nebraska after being the defensive coordinator for Frank Solich in 2003.

After Saturday, just where is the program headed?

by Dave Bradley

Looking back, no one could really blame the guy.
Seconds after the final gun on Saturday, when Minnesota head coach Jerry Kill was answering questions by an ESPN reporter at mid-field, a rather large, out of control Gopher fan jumped the fence and eluded security until he was just a few feet away from crashing in on the interview.
Luckily he was stopped just in time, and okay, maybe he did look a little drunk, but you’ve gotta like his enthusiasm, something sorely lacking for Big Red fans as they left the stadium.
And as Kill left the field, faithful Gopher fans in the southwest corner of Memorial Stadium chanted, “Jerry, Jerry, Jerry.”
Good for him. He’s done a masterful job up north.
But as painful as that four-point loss was on Saturday, I literally left the field as well as Coach Bo Pelini’s press conference wondering just where this program is headed.

You could say the Giltner volleyball program has been on a roll. A school record for wins in one season and back-to-back D2 championships will do that to a program.

Giltner advances to Saturday final

Two of the sets took comeback efforts, but the defending D2 volleyball champs Giltner Lady Hornets took advantage of timely timeouts to regain their composure and sweep Exeter-Milligan 3-0 Friday morning in the semifinals of the D2 state volleyball tournament. After a back-and-forth first set match in which the Lady Hornets won 26-24, Giltner was faced with a huge 15-4 deficit to the Timberwolves in the second set. But after a key timeout by Giltner coach Kurt Polt, the Lady Hornets benefitted from four straight errors by E-M, cutting the Timberwolves' lead to 16-8.
