If you saw the nature of this result coming, you're a basketball genius: Penn State 95, Nebraska 71. Seriously? Granted, those bizarre computer formulas that try to help us make sense of the college game say PSU is better than its record. But this much better?
Former Nebraska great Rex Burkhead returns to Lincoln this week for Saturday night's Team Jack Foundation Gala. The Patriots running back also plans to attend the Red-White Spring Game in April.
It's important to be sensitive to the feelings and concerns of the young woman in California with whom Maurice Washington had a relationship.

In the final minutes of Nebraska's 70-60 loss to Ohio State, Husker fans were groaning or even shouting disapproval, most of it directed toward Tim Miles, the seventh-year NU head coach with arguably the most-talented roster in his tenure. Do something, a fan implored in the quiet of an emptying arena. It felt like a fan base giving up on its head coach.
