The New England Patriots will take on the Atlanta Falcons in the Super Bowl in Houston in two weeks, and that means an important Nebraska streak will continue.
This year will mark the 24th consecutive season that a Nebraska player has been on the roster of the teams playing in the Super Bowl. Former Nebraska defensive tackle Vincent Valentine is on the Patriots roster, and played a role in New England’s AFC Championship Game win over the Steelers.
Valentine will be the 58th former Husker player to appear in the Super Bowl. Nebraska has had 57 former Huskers make 72 appearances in the Super Bowl dating back to Super Bowl II following the 1967 season.
Sam Koch of the Baltimore Ravens was the most recent Husker to play in the Super Bowl, as the Ravens defeated the San Francisco 49ers, 34-31, in Super Bowl XLVII.
NFL Hall of Famer Mick Tingelhoff appeared in four Super Bowls, but never won a ring. Roger Craig, Grant Wistrom and Russ Hochstein each appeared in three Super Bowls with Craig coming away with a trio of NFL championship rings to lead all former Huskers in that category.

Bud Foster is the most overrated DC ever.
Just because he's been in Blacksburg 30 years doesn't mean he's good.
Ed Cunningham might be the most annoying color commentator on ESPN.
And yeah, Bielema looks like he's gained 200 pounds since he left Madison.

I think Tim Miles is a dead man walking.
Shawn Eichorst basically has been looking for any reasons to fire coaches hired by Tom Osborne.
First Bo Pelini, then Connie Yori last year. Tim Miles will be out by the end of the year.

Nebraska used to travel well in the 70s, 80s and 90s when they competed in the Big 8/Big XII and few games were televised.
That's because most of their weak conference opponents were day trips -- Iowa State, Kansas and Kansas State -- as well as any game played in Kansas City. During this time, Nebraska was 40-3-1 in road games against these three.
For those without NU season tickets, it was a way to see the Huskers live in person and almost always a guaranteed win. HUS-KER HOME GAME Clap, clap, clap-clap-clap.
For games outside the Central time zone, Nebraska hasn't traveled well since joining the Big Ten.
Husker fans haven't come close to a sold out regular season game in the state of Indiana so far -- and that includes two trips to West Lafayette and this year's game in Bloomington.
The 2012 Big Ten championship game vs. Wisconsin was the least attended of all of them -- attendance was around 41,000.
I don't see Husker fans showing up in great numbers should they make the championship game this year either -- it's a ten hour drive to Indy from Lincoln -- but mainly because there's a good chance Nebraska would lose.
And... they don't serve Runzas at Lucas Oil Stadium.

Yes -- agree with your assessment of Pelini. He's getting $128k/month from his Nebraska buyout through February 2019. He had better offers but I don't blame him going back to YSU and make NU pay as much as possible.

This tweet from some irrelevant Salt Lake City sports talk host is just another example of the internet empowering the dummies and jackwagons of the world.
There is not an iota or scintilla of anyone of substance in Lincoln advocating a return to a conference that will be dead in four years.
Jim Delany is thrilled with Nebraska. NU officials have been clear that the converse is true as well. Nebraska fully vests next year and that is big money. Academics and related status and opportunities are going up -- it's everything NU wanted and more.
Everyone is thrilled to be in the Big Ten, and should be.
I'm guessing they'd like to see the Big Ten add OU and Kansas to the West. Purdue could move to the East Division -- that puts 8 schools in the Eastern time zone, and 8 schools in the Central.
The Huskers would get to renew their Oklahoma rivalry and every other year NU gets another "home" game in Lawrence.

At least three people are reportedly dead after a boat crash off Miami Beach on Sunday morning.
Emergency workers are searching for more victims near Government Cut and South Pointe Park.
Miami-Dade Fire Rescue crews responded to the crash of the 30-foot boat.
“They found a boat that was up against the jetties,” Miami-Dade Fire Rescue Chief Todd Garofalo told WSVN. “They did do an initial search and they found three victims — two on top of the water, one underneath the boat and they had unfortunately passed away.”

Agree. After I graduated U-M, I lived in the Mountain TIme Zone for a few years. Games kicked off at 10 AM, and the "prime time" games concluded around 8:00 - 8:30 pm. That's a full day of college football, and still time to hit the bars.
After that, I lived in the UK for a year (2007) and I didn't watch a single college game. Yeah, a good time to miss "The Horror."

I don't see any scenario where Nebraska wins the West. This is a team that beat ONE team in the West last season.
Mike Riley knows how to sweet talk the Nebraska media and a lot of fans love him, which I guess is all that matters.
Nebraska is the aging beauty queen that needs to be told how pretty she still is.
But Mark Banker's ability to coordinate a defense is atrocious.

As a whole, coaches seem to think the SEC is the strongest conference
|29 weeks 19 hours ago||128 FBS schools, 64 ballots||
It would appear that the number of ballots are allocated proportional to conference size:
Big Ten - 7 (Chris Ash, Paul Chryst, DJ Durkin, James Franklin, Urban Meyer, Mike RiLLLLLLLey, Kevin Wilson)
ACC - 7
American - 6
Big XII - 5
CUSA - 7
MAC - 7
Mountain West - 6
Pac-12 - 6
SEC - 7
Sun Belt - 5
Notre Dame - 1
I have no idea if the conference offices decide which coaches get to vote.
Chryst, Franklin, Meyer and Riley had ballots last season. Chris Ash succeeded Kyle Flood. Harbaugh and Dantonio don't have ballots this season.

The issue is whether Texas and Oklahoma are going to continue to be happy in a league that either is only 10 teams, or will be further watered down by expansion with the best reasonably available teams being BYU (would love to hear TCU and Baylor's views there!) and one of the commuter schools--Houston, which adds little geographically, or Cincinnati, which does, but isn't going to provide bang for the buck being wedged between Big Ten and SEC country and doesn't have the breadth of programs available for a major conference slate.
If I were the Big 12, I would make a full run at Virginia Tech (to couple with West Virginia) and then either BYU or perhaps the smarter play, Central or South Florida to hit a beachhead in Florida (figuratively and literally).
The biggest issue for Oklahoma leaving the Big 12 is disassociating with Oklahoma State. The biggest issue for Texas leaving (besides getting to keep LHN) is distance to all other teams in another conference, and also leaving behind Texas Tech, Baylor and TCU.

Announced that Nebraska will not attend media day in Chicago tomorrow. I believe that's where Foltz was headed.

You're right. I guess we would have understood if Jim Hackett was unable to forgive Jim Harbaugh for his 2007 public comments.

Seriously? So anyone who was ever publicly critical of Dave Brandon on social media should be forever barred from being a U-M PA announcer?

Schuetz' comment was directed at the NU chancellor -- Harvey Perlman -- who some believe is on a mission to purge the NU athletic department of all things Tom Osborne.
This action seems comparable to when John U. Bacon lost his press pass.
