The Nebraska baseball team is off to its best start in the Will Bolt era. It's also been a long, long time since it's gotten off to this kind of start under anyone but Bolt. The Huskers are gearing up for a game against Kansas State, and they're going to need to find a way to pull off a win against a Top 25 team.

Bolt made an appearance on Monday night on Sports Nightly to talk about the way the Nebraska Cornhuskers have forged a 17-5 start to the season.

Among other things, Bolt talked about the way they're finding new ways to win this season. And how they are going to find ways to win as the season goes on.

"We are trying to be the toughest team in the country," Bolt said on the program. "We want a brand of baseball that the fans can be proud of and that is team baseball."

Bolt also talked about one of the reasons the Huskers have been so successful this season is because he's actually had to be a bit more creative with his lineup. The Nebraska Cornhuskers coach said that he's got a good problem of trying to find a way to get everyone in the lineup. That's why the offense has been so good despite losing two massive sluggers to the MLB draft last offseason.

The Nebraska football team officially started its spring practice regime. You can check out a set of pictures that were posted by the university as the new teammates and old ones start to learn where they fit in on the 2024 version.
