Is Fred Hoiberg trying to hint at something with the return of the Nebraska Cornhuskers boom box? Baseball players get honored, more in today’s news.
The Nebraska Cornhuskers coaches have made an intimate object the star of the show. Matt Rhule and his staff are the ones that have done it the most but now it appears Fred Hoiberg is picking up the tradition.
The object in question is a branded Nebraska Cornhuskers boombox that featured prominently in several social media posts hinting at the recruitment of Dylan Raiola. In the end, that boom box looking as cool as it did, wasn’t enough.
So when Nebraska basketball coach Fred Hoiberg took to Twitter on Sunday afternoon with a picture of said boom box, one has to wonder if he’s trying to say something. Considering the backdrop appeared to be a lakeside cabin, it’s possible he was just enjoying some tunes while on vacation.
Other Nebraska Cornhuskers news
- Since Matt Rhule’s arrival in Lincoln, he and Trev Alberts have been working hard to reshape the athletic department. That meant a lot of changes and a lot of new hires. Lots of coming and going. Steve Rosen of HuskerOnline recently wrote an article detailing just who joined the AD and what they’re making salary-wise. It’s an impressive piece of work and worth a read.
- The Nebraska baseball team didn’t have a great showing in the Big Ten Tournament. The offense, especially, struggled badly. However, there were some Huskers who were able to stand out. Max Anderson, for one, had an absolutely insane tourney. He was almost the biggest hero of the tournament so far if his last at-bat had gone just a few more feet.
- As it is, Anderson and Nebraska Cornhuskers pitcher Will Walsh made the All-Big Ten Tournament team. Walsh was the man who allowed NU one more chance at a tourney title, throwing a complete game shutout on Friday night against Michigan State. It was a valiant effort, even if turned out to be futile.
- The team that did win the tournament, the Maryland Terapins, were a juggernaut this week. But it has to make Nebraska Cornhuskers fans feel a little better that they gave the Terps all they could handle not once, but twice. Maryland ended up beating Iowa in the title game 4-0, marking an easier win than either of their victories against the Huskers.
