    OWH Husker Preview

    The Omaha World Herald has been doing it's preview of the Big 12 teams, and today was their preview of Nebraska (at #4). Pretty objective, but then I guess the writers there have a pretty good track record of keeping their fans in check. Seems like things might not be so glorious in Lincoln as many would have you believe.

    Re: OWH Husker Preview

    This made me laugh out loud. Dont know why. Just did.



    Q. Nebraska went undefeated against teams in the Big 12 North Division last season. That's a sure sign of progress, isn't it?

    A. Sure. Maybe the Huskers can hold a joint celebration with Baylor, which also was undefeated against the North last season.

    I cant gripe on the Herald, they usually have some great ISU coverage. We unfortunately get the Sioux City journal who only cares about the Hawks and the Huskers since we are in the tri-state area over here. ugh.

    Re: OWH Husker Preview

    Barfy is the OWH's Big 12 beat writer, for whatever reason, he's had it in for Nebraska since 1997. That article was nothing but garbage. In 2005, this guy gave NU a 1% chance of beating Colorado. Following Nebraska's thumping of CU, the Husker board i'm a member of pooled our money together and bought a mess load of 1% milk with a note telling Barfy to stick it were the sun doesn't shine.

    Why was it garbage? I pretty much agreed with the whole thing.
