Nebraska LB Zaire Anderson out for the season

Nebraska LB Zaire Anderson out for the season

Nebraska LB Zaire Anderson tore his ACL and is out for the season. He was one of Nebraska's highly touted JUCOs and was supposed to fill the void at LB after Lavonte David graduated. This coupled with sudden departure of DT Chase Rome raises some question marks for the Huskers on defense.

OT: Nebraska loses another offensive lineman, Klachko transfers to Illinois

OT: Nebraska loses another offensive lineman, Klachko transfers to Illinois

New Illinois head coach Tim Beckman seems to have found a new recruiting tactic, getting transfers from other B1G schools, and Nebraska seems to be losing linemen weekly, as they lost their 2nd in successive weeks.

  Ryan Klachko transferring to Illinois

Yesterday, Nebraska offensive lineman Ryan Klachko, a RS-freshman from Springfield, IL transferred and will sit out the 2012-2013 season. He was a 4* recruit out of HS last year.

Last week the Illini added Penn State transfer Ryan Nowicki to their offensive line. Nowicki is eligible this season.

Over the weekend, offensive lineman Tyler Moore, 4*, left Nebraska and will take semester off then consider a return to Nebraska or FSU and UF.

This is would be one way to put the myth (or truth?) of college football conference superiority to a legitimate top-down test.  I'm looking at you SEC.

Nebraska at Michigan...in 1962

Nebraska at Michigan...in 1962

Submitted by markusr2007 on June 11th, 2010 at 5:20 PM

There's a lot of great blogs and data about Nebraska football. Most of it stems from Huskerpedia, which has an excellently detailed chronology of past Cornhusker football seasons with photos from some of their games.

They have an interesting full game and statistical recap from the last time Michigan and Nebraska ever met during the regular season in Michigan Stadium back in 1962.

Amazingly this was the very first season in Lincoln for former a little-known Wyoming coach, but a future Cornhusker football icon, Bob Devaney.

Devaney was a Saginaw, Michigan product and high school football coach at several different Michigan high schools.  He also was a graduate of Alma College, and later coached under Duffy Daugherty before the Wyoming job.

Nebraska won the game 25-13. Unfortunately, Michigan finished 2-7 and dead last in the Big Ten.
