Championship bound

The Nebraska volleyball team is headed to the NCAA national championship match after defeating Penn State. The Huskers won the deciding set 15-11 to top the Nittany Lions.

And before the matchup took place, Nebraska volleyball coach John Cook was inducted into AVCA Hall of Fame.

Recruiting update

Nebraska has put an emphasis on defensive backs for the 2018 recruiting class. Four-star prospect Taiyon Palmer is one of those players the Huskers are focusing on, and he seems to be impressed by Nebraska overall.

A perfect fit

Could Nebraska quarterback commit Adrian Martinez thrive in Frost’s offense? Martinez’s high school football coach thinks so.

Homegrown Nebraska

The overall response to the Huskers’ “Homegrown Nebraska” walk-on event seems to be nothing but positive. A look at initial recruit reactions highlight just that. The event also made good on Frost’s promise to put a focus on the walk-on program.

As for Kearney Catholic (Neb.) quarterback Matt Masker, the event led to his preferred walk-on offer from Nebraska.

A busy week

After a busy first week with Nebraska, Frost has had an even busier one for his second. He’s been on many flights and has almost spent an entire day in the air since Sunday.

Exactly right

It was a bit of a savage tweet, but the NCAA put it into words perfectly. Penn State just couldn’t overcome the Huskers.
