THE HYPE CONTINUES?
The Nebraska football program shared a series of cryptic tweets on its social media accounts over the past week or so. Naturally, that sparked rumors an announcement of some sort was forthcoming.
The saga continued — or ended, depending on your stance — on Tuesday, as Scott Frost tweeted a 1 minute, 48-second video that revolved around Memorial Stadium.
One of the main takeaways?
"Today's eerie silence only fuels a future return," the off-camera narrator bellowed.
Is it another cryptic hint of future announcements? Or just a video aimed to rally the troops?
Decide for yourself:
LET'S PLAY BALL
Elkhorn native Kyle Peterson has his eyes on the live baseball action in Korea. Peterson, a nearly 20-year ESPN veteran, normally would be getting ready for postseason NCAA baseball right now.

Steven M. Sipple caught up with Peterson, and you can find his story here.

Brown, a Harverford, Pennsylvania., native, has offers from Purdue, Villanova and Notre Dame, among other Power Five programs.
