Nebraska Cornhuskers head coach Matt Rhule was named as someone that college football analysts would love to see at a bachelor party.

Most Nebraska football fans would agree that Matt Rhule is a very likable guy. He’s been likable since the first day he set foot in Lincoln and took over the Huskers program.

He’s an accomplished speaker in front of the media, and he’s an accomplished recruiter. He also seems like an entertaining guy. Whether that’s going out to dinner or axe throwing, or just hanging out and talking about any number of subjects.

I’m far from the only one who thinks he’s likely a fun guy to hang around with. A couple of college football analysts recently put together lists of the coaches that they’d most likely hang with at a bachelor party, and the Nebraska Cornhuskers headman made the list.

Alongside Rhule were Deion Sanders, Shane Beamer, Lane Kiffin, Sam Pittman, and Lincoln Riley. It’s worth pointing out that the list is made up entirely of coaches that are viewed as “up and coming” or, in Lincoln Riley’s case, already there. That’s a good place for Rhule to be, heading into the 2023 season.

100 years through the Nebraska Cornhuskers’ stadium gates

Speaking of heading into the 2023 season, it’s just around the corner. And as a way to kick off the festivities, which will be underlined by Big Ten Media Days next week, the university released a new video titled, “100 years though these gates.”

I dare you to watch this video and not get some serious goosebumps.

Jordy Bahl street

If you thought the hype and excitement over Jordy Bahl joining the Nebraska softball program had died down, you were sorely mistaken. On Friday, the city of Papillion announced that  two streets that run by the Papillion Landing Softball Complex are now officially named after Husker players.

Jordyn Bahl Boulevard and Peaches James Way were officially unveiled. The ceremony was an hour-long affair celebrating Bahl and James-Keaton and their accomplishments in softball both in Papillion and college. James, an All-American pitcher at NU who is the school’s career leader in strikeouts, inspired Bahl, a two-time national champion at Oklahoma who just transferred back to the Nebraska Cornhuskers.

Freshmen to make an impact

There’s been a lot of talk about just who might be an impact player in Matt Rhule’s first season in Lincoln. 247Sports’ Mike Schaefer recently put together a list of the three redshirt freshmen who he believes will make an impact in 2023.
