    Nebraska VS Penn State Championship Game

    Yeah that was kind of bush league for PSU to kick the field goal as time ran out. But I thought we looked good on our three touchdowns.

    Yeah, a program that had zero interest in him coming out of high school. What changed? Oh yeah, he was given an opportunity to shine and develop under Tim Miles at Nebraska.

    As a marine biologist, I would not assume the whale was struck by a tree in the forest. The first thing to do is check the blowhole for a golf ball ...and did that make your Tuesday, Art Vandalay?

    He averaged 6 pts and 6 rebs in 24 minutes as a sophomore. For all the holes in his game, those are productive numbers. And let's be honest, he's going to a better program.

    I don't know any of the circumstance and maybe he had a real reason, but I'm a Nebraska fan so my take he refused to stick around and work for a spot. He would definitely have been a help next year but all signs pointed to less time on the floor for him.

    Also can we take a minute to appreciate Erstad. If im correct this was the mans first HC job so obviously theres gonna be some growing pains and time for him to make adjustments, critiques, etc to his coaching style/plan. Plus lets not forget the last 2-3 yrs of the Anderson era we were a pretty bad baseball club, so its not like he took over the baseball juggernaut of the early 2000s. Heres to regional appearances in 3/4 yrs and a Big Ten Conference Championship. Lets add to it next week.

    Meyers will be back next year - he doesn't have what the MLB is looking for in the early rounds. When Meyers is drafted he will be drafted after a couple hundred guys that are worse ball players because he doesn't throw mid ninties or hit double digit bombs. MLB teams tend to not draft guys that are gritty damn good ball players in the early rounds - they want flash and measurables.

    The Husker baseball team took in their share of Big 10 awards this year: Coach of the Year: Darin Erstad 1st team: Jake Meyers and Scott Schreiber 3rd team: Angelo Altavilla and Jake Hohensee Freshman team: Luke Roskam Sportsmanship Award: Ben Miller Hope they stay hot the rest of the year. Really happy for Erstad who seemed to be taking some heat recently.

    OT Good haul for Husker baseball team

    My argument for Meyers as the Most Valuable Player is the role he was asked to play. Arguably he played one of the most critical defensive positions well; he was an effective Sunday starter (perhaps the best or at least one of the best) and he played a critical role in our hitting line-up. He took a role few are asked to perform and he excelled. Heck, that said, Luis Alvarado could have/should have garnered some votes as well.

    As long as he doesn't follow it up with winning less than 33% of his conference games moving forward - Erstad should be safe.

    Will be interesting to watch his shooting progress or lack thereof. I don't think our coaches are very good at developing shooting. If he progresses in this front, like I suspect he will, it will confirm our need to be better at helping our guys shoot better somehow.

    Agreed. Never understood why ppl knock these kids for transferring. Nobody seemed to be too mad when Petteway and Walt decided not to tough it out and earn playing time on their respective teams. And i doubt any Husker fans will be complaining about it this winter when Palmer and Copeland suit up for us. Hopefully MJ does well there and whatever problem caused him to leave us is settled at Iowa State.

    Yes, a candid admission on your part. I was that way once also. I have come back to earth. Perhaps the shooting percentage did it. Perhaps bringing the ball down low after a board did it, and perhaps loving the dribble in the paint did it. And perhaps you are right, an off season will improve those things. The effort will be there.

    Hey guys just found out this existed. I can't wait for Wednesday, they need a much better showing than last year. Although the Maryland/Iowa second game kind of gives me pause. Hopefully this can be a spring board for our other major men's sports. It is possible for Nebraska to win a conference title.

    You make a valid point. Prior to World War II, most of the world sided with Neville Chamberlain over Winston Churchill. Doesn't mean they sided with Hitler....

    Agree. I guess I understand Sharp not asking Coach Williams anything of substance in his radio interview of her last week, because they pretty much have to be complete homers on Sports Nightly. But you'd think the newspaper guys might ask something substantive. We all get that patience is in order, but that doesn't mean all inquiries are off limits. Having said that, I'm not sure we'd get a completely straight answer, like "Well, we tried, but we came up empty".
