Of the blowouts and meltdowns I’ve seen covering Husker football, this was the most shocking and inexcusable, and it bordered on most embarrassing (I haven’t forgotten Kansas ’07 and Texas Tech ’04).
Highlights from the city high school sports scene.
As Kentucky opened its spring football practice back on March 6, Mark Stoops said this about 2022: “There were probably things I could’ve done better, going all the way back to last winter. I’m not going to let that happen again.” So far, the UK coach is a man of his word. Last Saturday, Stoops was stewing after his team’s scrimmage.

Hayes Gardner: Even as a former MVP, Ravens QB Lamar Jackson lacks agency. That leaves him pulling any lever he can.
BALTIMORE — Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson has become an NFL unicorn for his ability to make something out of nothing. In the open field, he impossibly evades tacklers, and in the backfield, he dodges linemen and squeezes downfield passes between defensive backs. But as Jackson, now a veteran of five professional seasons, tries to navigate a long-term contract, he’s run into dead ends and ...
BALTIMORE — Calais Campbell’s career in Baltimore was short but impactful. The 36-year-old veteran defensive lineman spent just three of his 15 seasons in the NFL with the Ravens, but he made the Pro Bowl in 2020 and last season was the Art Rooney Sportsmanship Award winner.
