Husker Heartbeat 3/9: Big 12 Title Sites Still in Flux

By at March 9, 2010 | 10:20 AM | Print

Welcome to Husker Heartbeat – a sampling of links and quick wit to start your morning! Keep checking each morning, Monday-Friday, for new links! We look for the offbeat as well as the straightforward – so don’t just think of us as a typical link farm!

A quick abbreviation key FYI: OWH=Omaha World-Herald, LJS=Lincoln Journal-Star, CN=Corn Nation, BRN=Big Red Network, HI=Huskers Illustrated, BRR=Big Red Report. If we need to add more – we will. Others, like ESPN, are self-explanatory.

Cool? Cool!

*Joba Chamberlain’s two-year-old documentary, produced by the New York Yankees, finally gets aired on NET Tuesday night. And Celtic Thunder on Friday!

*LJS’ Steve Sipple applauds the work of Connie Yori, tracing at least some of her success to closing practice. This presumes, of course, that anybody before this season was all that interested in watching. Sorry for the jab, but six spectators in the caverns of the Devaney Sports Center wouldn’t make one lick of difference to the excellence of this team. Open practices don’t appear to hurt the Nebraska volleyball team, either.

*Big 12 Commish Dan Beebe isn’t necessarily married to keeping the Big 12 football Championship in Dallas every year. Nebraska fans may prefer this, but we don’t – unless a different site other than the frigid Kansas City is found.

*You want to know what the Nebraska’s women’s basketball team is up against in the NCAA Tournament? Nothing less the greatest dynasty in women’s college basketball. Hooray! Time the strike the Philistine, eh?

*ESPN’s Joe Schad put out his list of 100 college football players to watch for 2010. Jared Crick weighs in at No. 30. He’s the only Husker on the list. Oklahoma, meanwhile, has six players. So pencil in OU for the national title, we guess. There isn’t an offensive lineman on the list, and only four defensive linemen, so it’s eminently clear Schad did copious research on the topic.
