Will Bolt, in his first full season at NU, has a chance to best his mentor and former coach Dave Van Horn, in getting the Huskers to a super regional. Van Horn did it in his third season at Nebraska. Bolt will try to do it in two.
Nebraska lurked into the sixth inning within arm's length of the No. 1 team in the nation. Then the "uncharacteristic" blemishes piled up.
Next up, Arkansas: "These are the moments you live for, being able to play the best."
The Van Horn/Bolt connection is one of the weekend's biggest storylines, with no guarantees Nebraska and No. 1 national seed Arkansas play each other.
OMAHA — You wonder if, at some point, it gets a little less fun for Dave Van Horn.
