Looks like former Stanford commit and teammate of Jackson Beau Bisharat might be visiting and signing with NU.

Nebraska assistant coach Hank Hughes has left the building.


Not a lot of detail but if you read between the lines he was let go by Riley. DL line coach making 300K

The headline on the top of todays Sunday paper read "Tommy Armstrong determined to improve in final season" :roll: Like Donald Trump says "Once a choker always a choker!" :yes: Head coach Riley is so sure that Tommy is going to have a good year that he and his wife still have not bought a home to live in. Riley is sticking with his story that his wifes allergies are preventing them from finding a suitable home. :sly: I tend to think Riley knows that theres a good chance this year could go as bad as last year and his days in Lincloln could be so short they wont be needing to bother finding a home in Lincoln.

For those that want to stake their bets on how long MR will be here based on his home ownership I just shake my head. Not only here but elsewhere.

At the Salary range a Div 1 Head coach is at and the buyout needed to be payed if there is much contract remaining the decision on home ownership will not impact staying or going. Even if the price bracket that he may be able to get into it will sell at some point so it is not a big issue.

As for MR's wife's health issues, they were documented before they came to Lincoln so to discount them is not very understanding of what health issues can cause.

Omaha man sues to stop Husker football balloon release

Chris Dunker / Lincoln Journal Star wrote:An Omaha man is suing the University of Nebraska in an attempt to curb the balloon release tradition that happens at Husker football games, citing a 1976 federal law governing waste disposal.

In a lawsuit filed Tuesday in U.S. District Court, Randall Krause said the mass balloon release results in the open dumping of solid waste, which is prohibited under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act.

I have read elsewhere that this same guy sued the City of Omaha a year or two for using road salt. Was based on the same act. Case was dismissed.

There was a pretty long thread on this on HuskerMax.com a couple of years ago. At that time the U said they were and that they had been for some time. I did a bunch of reading on this at that time and the speed at wich they say they break apart may be a bit overstated. You will also find people that talk about burying these and come back a year later and they are fully in tact. What I read at that time confirmed some of that and that the sealing them up by burying them really protects them for a fair amount of time.

If left to fall naturally the conses I seemed to find was that in normal conditions they would break down in a month or two but there are occasions where they last a lot longer.

I guess I would just add if they didn't break down in a reasonable time with all the balloons at all the events that are released over a years time when don't you see more of them laying around?

Yeah he is not a real high star recruit. I think 3 in some, 2 in another and I believe not ranked on ESPN.

It does say something though when a coach sends you his son.

I have seen rating from the #3 to the #5 FB in the country. Most of what I have looked at also has him at a 3* but I will be the first to admit I have not looked at all the data.

More importantly, will his dad want to become Nebraska's next coach next year?

This new coach we got is not going to last long. One of his assistant coachs gets in an accident and tests out to be DUI for the 3rd time. No way this guy should still be around. Riley gives him 2 weeks without pay and a 4 game suspension. Thats a joke. I'm pretty much sure my career and alot of peoples careers would be over if we just got our 3rd DUI. They would hang me and say I am not trustworthy. But not in Nebraska football. No way this new coach works out. This guy is going to crash and burn hard in a couple of years and take his millions back to Oregon with a big smile on his face. He knows this experiment is doomed but he wants the money. What a drag for Husker fans.

They released the "Alternate" Uniforms. Looks to be all white design... I'm not a Husker Fan, but I do recall (maybe I am mistaken), aren't all whites considered bad luck?

Ah. Well, I suppose 5-12 would raise any eyebrow, so I can't blame you guys.

That said? I like them, they look sharp. Way better than any previous year where it looked like a 2 year old designed them.

My family had season tickets with the parents paying the donation and I pay the face value for the games I want. Over the weekend I picked up my two Oregon tickets. My sister said they were $125 so I gave her $125 thinking they were $62.50 each. My jaw dropped when they had a $125 face value on each of them. Even the 3-9 Fresno St. game has a $75 price.

It is so sad but this is going to be the last season that the family has tickets.

Pretty sure I read that season tickets would have different values for each game but they all average the normal base price. Like Purdue is considerably less fave value to make up for the high Oregon face value.

At least in terms of the resale websites, it looks like the various home games have widely different price points, so I would be accepting of the idea that the huskers simply started that.

This is not unexpected. They are not the big draw they used to be and there were thousands of unsold season tickets for the 2016 season. They have to make up the revenue somehow. What they lost in volume, they are going to try to make up in mark up. This is a failing strategy as it causes more volume contraction.

Look for another 3-5 years of the Huskers being somewhat competitive and then they are toast, both in the BIG and in revenue. What will be interesting is what sports they cut or what student services get cut to make up for the loss.

Season tickets through the university were $399 per seat plus whatever "donation". Which ends up being $57 per game. That cost is about 25% less than face value.

As far as face value, yes, the Oregon tix were high at $125. The other non-con games were $75, and the conf games were $65.

I feel like it may take a while to catch on, but with the CFP now it is very important to have a strong schedule. How long will it take before high caliber schools stop scheduling "gimme games". I feel like since I started following football in 2006, colleges schedule matchups that give them a probable 4-0 start. Back in the day that might have looked good, but with the CFP in place they aren't as attractive. I think we are seeing a change with schools scheduling tougher opponents earlier in the season.

Will it come to a point that some schools get locked out of contention due to powerful schools scheduling only each other?

On another point, anybody think it would be possible for schools to only play conference division games (each school plays each other twice during the year). For example, Nebraska plays Iowa, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Northwestern, Illinois, and Purdue each twice a year and then play the conference championship game. In this case it would be harder for a school to win a conference and have each conference winner earn a playoff spot.Would that take away all the excitement of college football or create stronger rivalries?

I really think there needs to be a way to remove more and more subjectivity and push it later and later into the season. I think college football will always be up to a certain group of people's opinions, but there are ways to nearly remove it and make the decisions so clear that 99% of people can't refute it.

Final score:

Nebraska 43-Fresno State 10

Nebraska struggled a bit during the first half, then cruised the rest of the way. I'll admit, though, when the score was 14-10, I feared the worst: That Nebraska was going to shoot itself in the foot and lose at the last second. Thankfully, that didn't happen.

I was relieved when that second targeting call was reversed.

Um, no. That last paragraph is wrong on so many levels. With Nebraska's terms of entering the Big 10, they have been going through a vesting period. They have not been receiving their full share of conference revenue. The vesting period is now ending. This is happening right at the same time the Big 10 is tripling it's national TV contract revenue. NU has never had as much revenue as what they are approaching. They will be getting a full share in the richest conference. Throw in recently increased radio rights, 3 revenue generating sports for the first time in school history, along with their expiring deal with Addidas ( and a new richer one with them or Nike or Under Armour), and you can see why financially they are set for a very safe and secure future.
