Matt Rhule is leading the Nebraska Cornhuskers into training camp and has an interesting blueprint. Meanwhile, Brice Matthews has started his pro career.
As the Nebraska football team heads into its first preseason camp with Matt Rhule, there are many different things to watch. Right at the top of the list is the kind of blueprint that the Huskers’ head coach is looking to follow.
Tom Shatel recently wrote that if Rhule can coach as well as he speaks and lays out his plans, he’s really going to be something. During his address on the main stage, Rhule said before NU can talk about expectations and goals, it needs to win back respect.
Nebraska Cornhuskers update the Go Big Project
HuskerOnline got an update from Trev Alberts and Matt Rhule about how the Go Big Project is coming along as the Nebraska football team heads into call camp.
“It’s going well. It’s also been a challenge,” Alberts said of the status of the new football facility during an interview at Big Ten Media Days. “I had to remind myself: We have 315,000 square feet. It’s a massive facility. One of the things we are trying to figure out, and Coach (Matt) Rhule is very passionate about it – we don’t want to do anything that disrupts the football team.

Brice Matthews gets a hit
Now that Brice Matthews is officially a member of the Houston Astros organization, it’s time for his to start his pro baseball career. So far so good as he started that career with the Fayatteville Woodpeckers.
He started it off right too, as he got a hit in his first game. Granted, it wasn’t exactly a ringing double off the wall or anything, but at least he got it out of his system. In his first game, he went 1-for-4 with a single, a walk, a strike out and one caught stealing.
Honorary Husker wins title
Terence “Bud” Crawford has made history. Crawford is the first man to become an undisputed champion in two different weight divisions. And he did it by beating Errol Spence to a pulp on Saturday night.
Crawford needed nine rounds to win his title, but it was clear he was winning from very early on. He eventually pummeled Spence to the point that the ref had to call the fight. The man who the entire state considered a Nebraska Cornhuskers star continues to just win and win and win.
