  3. My Husker Football Christmas List

    It's Christmas time and I'm making a list and checking it twice (oh I guess that's not really my role). I've been a very good Husker fan all year, and these are the presents I'm asking for.   1...

  4. Who Really Deserves the Heisman Trophy?

    I have always thought the Heisman trophy was overrated.  I can think of countless snubs, plenty of undeserving winners, and an award ceremony that acts as if the winner is the next President of the United States...

  5. Bo Pelini Doesn't Get It

    Today may be the most embarrassing loss I have ever suffered as a Nebraska football fan.  Even the Callahan beatdowns seemed to have an air of inevitability to them...

  6. Week One: Winners and Losers

    It was another great week in what should be another great college football season. So, after one week of play, what did we learn? Winners 1. Non-BCS Teams. This was arguably the most significant week ever for non-BCS teams...

  7. Football's New "Chosen One"

    There is one in every sport. He's the kid who has better attributes than the hall of famer. The one who will redefine the position. "The chosen one". In basketball it was LeBron James...

  10. Congratulations Mike Rizzo, You're Fired

    When I read that the Nationals were prepared to fire Mike Rizzo, I thought it was a joke. That can't be serious right? Apparently, and to the disgust of this Washington area baseball fan (although I'm not a Nats fan), they are doing just that...

  11. Mark McGwire: Where Have You Gone?

    It remains one of the top "where were you?" moments in sports. "Where were you when the US beat the Soviet Union?" "Where were you when Montana hit Clark?" "Where were you when Mark McGwire hit number 62?" Yes, it's something that everyone remembers...

  15. Everything a Catch-22 for the Washington Nationals These Days

    As a Washington, DC native and avid baseball fan I am often mistaken for a rare but sympathetic breed; a Nationals fan. While I am not a fan of the team, I do find their situation intriguing...
