    MAIN DATA

    YEAR 1 SUMMARY
    Year 1 under Coach Moreecemos was an unusual struggle for him. The team went 11-3 but otherwise played pretty solid. During the 3 losses, there seemingly was some mental breakdowns but naturally as the year progressed, they played better. Their revengeful win against PSU led them winning the Big 10 conference. Their bowl game was initially played before a sim and in that game Nebraska had the lead but they ran out of gas as Utah eventually pulled out the win in that game and in the sim. Nebraska finished with the #5 ranked recruiting class, and that's an area that Coach wanted to improve in.
    RECORD- 11-3
    WINS BIG 10 TITLE
    RB Aaron Green wins RET OF THE YEAR
    ***RB Rex Burkhead, FS Courtney Osborne, P Brent Maher and MLB Will Compton all elected to go pro.

    YEAR 2 SUMMARY
    Year 2 was suppose to be the coming out party for the Cornhuskers but it saw similar results from year 1. Early on, the Cornhuskers defense was shoddy and it really didn't get into gear until late in the season. They suffered 3 losses during the regular season to Ole Miss, PSU and OSU. The OSU loss really hurt because hindsight, the Cornhuskers could have been playing for a title last year if it weren't for that last minute hiccup. Still, with the help of Michigan State, who beat Iowa to give them a 6-2 conference record, it tied with Nebraska, giving us the edge since Nebraska beat Iowa and sent them to their 2nd straight conference title. There, they once again took down PSU, this time with one of their more impressive games to date, beating them 45-7. Unfortunately, Nebraska couldn't win their bowl game over TCU which wasn't coached by Moreecemos. We finished with the #34 ranked class and while we didn't get true studs, we did fill huge needs at the LB spot, which likely will be starting 2 freshman.
    RECORD- 10-4
    WINS BIG 10 TITLE

    YEAR 3 SUMMARY
    This was a big year for us. We had quite a few seniors playing huge roles for us on this team. On offense, 6 of our 11 starters were seniors, including star QB Taylor Martinez and 4 of the offensive linemen. This year we controlled the LOS for most if not all of our games. It showed in the 1st game of the season when we ran it all over Utah, as Trey Smith went for over 300 yards rushing. Our run game would help balance out Martinez and the passing game. Smith's backup, Aaron Green, was spectacular in his role as backup and return specialist. He once again took home the Best RET award for the 3rd straight year as all year he gave the offense short field to work with, and 5 times, returning kicks and punts for TD's. The passing game was spread out as everyone was a factor, even down to the backup TE and 5th WR spots. No one had over 1000 yards receiving despite us throwing for over 4000 yards through the air. This gave us the #1 offense in the nation yardage wise. Defensively we were middle of the pack in most categories but we loved to cause havoc on opposing QB's, getting 52 sacks and 25 INT's both #4 in the nation.

    RECORD- (14-0)
    WINS BCS NATIONAL TITLE, BIG 10 TITLE
    RB Aaron Green wins Best RET title
    MLB David Santos wins Best LB title

    YEAR 4 SUMMARY
    Coming off their 14-0 season, there were some changes, specifically at the QB spot where long-time QB Brion Carnes got his shot at starting. He played well and stayed more in the pocket than Martinez ever did. The run game was off and on, due to teams keying in more on stopping RB's Trey Smith and Aaron Green. Green went down mid-way through the season but Aaron Green stepped up, performing triple duty as a KR/PR and as #1 RB. The WR corps was altered midway as well as freshman phenom Dustin Herron emerged as the #2 WR behind Steve McCauley and Herron went over 1000 yards receiving as the big time downfield threat. The defense was more ferocious than ever, forcing sacks from every which position, especially at DT where SR-DT Chase Rome registered 17.5 sacks. The attacking defense that coach Moreecemos wanted was a success and forced teams to make quick decisions and kept us near the top in turnover margin. All of this led to a perfect regular season and a date with...you guessed it...Penn State. We were able to overcome them again though, 20-17 giving us 4 straight Big 10 championships. We entered the title game against OSU, who backed into the game and it showed, as they were downed 52-27. Another perfect season and a 28 game win streak, to go along with 4-straight conference titles and more importantly, 2 straight BCS championships.

    RECORD- (14-0)
    WINS BCS NATIONAL TITLE, AND BIG 10 TITLE
    RB Aaron Green wins Best RET award
    P Mauro Bondi wins Guy award

    YEAR 5 SUMMARY
    This year we switched up our offense to a wide open air raid type attack, via the Oklahoma PB. The result were good for the most part. We could pass on any team and it led to Trey Smith being a big beneficiary, as he won the heisman award as he found many big holes and had tons of big plays. The downside is we threw around 34 INT's, which is a huge no-no. Jeff Lindsey wasn't ready for primetime but bubba Starling definitely more than held his own back there. He leaned heavily on WR Dustin Herron, who won the Biletnekoff award for best WR. He was simply a manchild. Despite the success of our offense and our defense being much improved, we couldn't beat pesky Penn State twice, which is a huge down year for us and a downer in general. We hate losing to them and both games we beat ourselves, with around 10 turnovers in both contests. We did manage to get into the Orange Bowl and win that, ending the year with a 12-2 record but losing to Penn State just leaves a bitter taste in our mouths.

    RECORD- (12-2)
    WIN ORANGE BOWL
    WR Dustin Herron wins Biletnekoff award (73rec, 1609yds, 20TD's)
    MLB David Santos wins Best LB award (39 tackles, 21FL, 3 sacks, 5INT's, 3FF's, 2FR)
    K Ryan Norwood wins Best K award (20/22 FG's)

    ---This game turned out to be a headache then I thought. After lambasting this team the 1st try to the tune of 65-7, the game decided to freeze when returning to the game menu (SMH). So I replayed it, and FCS must have been pissed. Their QB connected on quite a few long plays on my defense, often going deep. Their deep to intermediate game was very impressive...that or my defense stunk. They threw for over 300 yards. The saving grace was at least my defense was aggressive. I'll attribute our 3 turnovers to aggressiveness. At times we were too aggressive.

    Martinez and Burkhead shined throughout this game with Martinez throwing for 3TD's and almost 300 yards and Burkhead hitting 200 yards and 3TD's. The kid I'm in love with is my backup RB Aaron Green is a game-changer. Everytime he touches the ball he's a threat to score. He's so fast and elusive especially on kickoffs.

    NEBRASKA- 45, FRESNO STATE- 19
    ---2nd game in a row where we gave up quite a few pass yards (around 290). We didn't play as aggressively in the 2nd half and it showed as we only gave up 6 points in the 2nd half on 2 FG's. Martinez had an excellent game with 358 yards passing and 3TD's. TE Kyler Reed is showing to be a matchup nightmare and FR-WR Kenny Bell is making strides on his own as well. JR-RB Rex Burkhead ran for 120 yards on 19 carries as well as 104 yards receiving with a TD rushing and receiving. Lest not forget about FR Aaron Green, who ran for 35 yards and a score but took a kick back 99 yards for another TD.

    Defensively we buckled down in the 2nd half on their passing game. Their run game led by impact RB Robbie Rouse (92) was shut down as he ran for 33 yards before exiting with an injury. We picked off their QB 2 times, one by FS Courtney Osborne and the other by CB Ciante Evans. Overall we seem to be rounding into form nicely as our conference schedule looms.

    NEBRASKA- 42, WASHINGTON- 24

    ---Washington came into the game without their starting QB so they were forced to start Joe's son, Nick Montana. The kid held his own, throwing for 263 yards with 2TD's and a pick. His fellow backfield mate, star RB Chris Polk rushed for 138 yards and a score including a long 52 yard scamper. Fortunately for the Cornhuskers, Taylor Martinez wasn't having it.

    Martinez was great on the day, throwing for 281 yards and 4TD's as Nebraska really leaned heavily on him as Burkhead could never get a great groove going on the ground. Yes Burkhead did have 93 yards on 15 carries but they were sparse throughout the game. Martinez had 3 long TD passes, two to Tim Marlowe (39 and 77 respectfully) and one to Kinnie (53 yards) which was his only catch on the game.

    Defensively, Courtney Osborne had an amazing 17 tackles on the game and the lone INT off of Montana. LB Sean Fisher and Jared Crick each had a sack on the game, who in the 2nd half really slowed down the running game of Washington.

    NEBRASKA ESCAPES UCLA
    ----Nebraska had to endure a last minute onslaught brought on by the UCLA Bruins to hold on, 38-35.

    Early on, UCLA took a 14-0 lead which spelled huge trouble for the Cornhuskers. They called on their freshman RB Trey Smith, who showed in this game he's a threat in the receiving game as well as rushing, as he took a screen pass 47 yards for a TD. This sparked a 21-0 run in the 2nd quarter and gave them a 21-14 edge at halftime.

    Nebraska seemed in control for the 3rd quarter as well, scoring 14 more points but they had to endure a furious Bruin comeback led by SR-QB Richard Brehaut, who passed for 347 yards and a TD on the game.

    Nebraska was led by JR-QB Taylor Martinez who threw for 295 yards, 4TD's, and rushed for 70 yards as well. FR-RB Trey Smith had a spectacular debut, rushing for 92 yards and a TD and catching 4 passes for 106 yards and a TD.

    NEBRASKA STATS
    JR-QB Taylor Martinez- 14/20, 295yds, 4TD's, 2INT's, 12car, 70yds
    FR-RB Trey Smith- 16car, 92yds, TD, 4rec, 106yds, TD
    SR-TE Kyler Reed- 4rec, 70yds, TD
    SR-CB Ciante Evans- 8 tackles, INT
    SR-SS P.J. Smith- 8 tackles, INT

    NEBRASKA BLOWS OUT SOUTHERN MISS

    ---This game got out to a rather inauspicious start for the Cornhuskers. USM's RB Kevin Hardy took the 1st handoff, 71 yards for a TD score. Right off the bat, it seemed like Nebraska was in for a long game.

    But what maybe different this year is the emergence of a true gamebreaking threat. Enter RB Trey Smith who had a stellar opening game and followed it up with maybe a performance that dominants the 1st one. Smith rushed for 184 yards on just 9 carries and scored 3TD's. He showed why he's this year's most electrifying freshman in the nation. His TD rushes were from 47 yards, 43 yards and 65 yards. "Simply put he's a stud and we are glad to pair him with SO-RB Aaron Green," said JR-QB Taylor Martinez. Green did not want to be outdone, rushing for 106yds on 15 carries with 2TD runs himseld and a receiving TD. All of this maybe overshadow a dominant but a huge step forward for Taylor Martinez. TM passed for 12/13, missing just one pass and passing for 249yds with 3TD's and an INT. "The growth this kid is having is amazing and it's good to have him in an offense that makes him much feel at home, like he's not an outside," said Coach Moreecemos.

    Defensively, Nebraska's star was SR-CB Ciante Evans. Evans has proved already that he's a much better player than Alfonso Dennard. Evans picked off two passes today and big hulking DT Blake Steinkhuler had 1.5 sacks. After the rocking 1st period the Cornhuskers saw a team which they feel confident about.

    NEBRASKA STATS
    JR-QB Taylor Martinez- 12/13, 249yds, 3TD', INT
    FR-RB Trey Smith- 9car, 184yds, 3TD's
    SO-RB Aaron Green- 15car, 106yds, 2TD's, INT
    SR-TE Kyler Reed- 5rec, 151yds, TD
    FR-WR Steve CaCualey (5)
    SR-CB Ciante Evans- 4 tackles, FL, 2INT's
    SR-DT Blank Steinkuhler- 3 tackles, 1.5 sacks

    QUARTERBACKS
    SR Taylor Martinez (96)
    JR Brion Carnes (86)
    SO Bubba Starling (82)
    FR Jeff Lindsey (81)
    FR Brandon Workman (76)
    ---We have a talented stable of QB's right now but Martinez coming back makes this team a title contender. Last year he improved his completion % to around 60 for the year and that's where we want him to be. Disappointed with his team's record and his own performance, he's come back for one final chance. He's still blazing fast (90spd) but has improved his accuracy to now you have to respect the pass. Brion Carnes, the backup, has been solid in mop-up duty and the sporadic times Martinez has been injured. The future seems bright with Bubba Starling a solid chance of starting next year. We love Jeff Lindsey, who was an athlete and we redshirted and has the most promise with his arm.

    RUNNING BACKS
    SO Trey Smith (82)
    JR Aaron Green (82)
    JR Ameer Abdullah (83)
    FR Brandon Phillips (71)
    SO Justin Howell (76)
    FR Maurice Bryant (72)
    ---Trey Smith has given this offense the danger part to it. His breakaway speed and acceleration makes him a constant threat on any given play and once he's on the edge, he's gone. He's come into this season as an All-American and 3rd on the heisman list. Also on the All-American list is Aaron Green, who's our return specialist. He's not the fastest but boy his 99 acceleration makes him such a fit to cover on kick and punt returns. Keep an eye out on SO Justin Howell, who we love because he has such sure hands. We converted Howell from ATH to RB due to his amazing carry rating (90).

    FULLBACKS
    SR C.J. Zimmer (83)
    FR Chris Beck (67)
    SO Chris Pennington (70)
    ---For our traditional run sets, we have a big bruising blocker in CJ Zimmer. Zimms is a good blocker and has improved his hands that we feel comfortable handing him the rock in short yardage situations. Zimms also can catch the ball out of the backfield. He maybe one of the more unheralded players for us this year and will be key to the success of our run game.

    WIDE RECEIVERS
    JR Kenny Bell (92)
    SO Steve McCauley (82)
    SR Stanley Jean Baptiste (80)
    SO Jamal Turner (80)
    JR Quincy Enunwa (77)
    FR Robert Marshall (76)
    FR Erik Morris (78)
    FR David Young (76)
    ---We have a ton of talented WR's, much of them are young (5 of the 8 are FR or SO). But the top dog is Kenny Bell, an equally dual threat WR who can be the possession type WR and then go deep on the go route. The improvement for us will be shown in our 2nd, 3rd and 4th WR's. While we loved having Tim Marlowe and Brandon Kinnie, inserting the big and physical Steve McCauley on the outside is huge for us. At 6'2"and just a freshman he made huge plays for us and now will flank Bell. SR Baptiste is a big WR who has surprising speed but we do wonder if he's an ideal slot WR. If not, we have Jamal Turner, a fleet of foot WR who maybe better suited for the slot or Quincy Enunwa, a guy whos amazing out of his break. We redshirted Morris and Young, two top WR's we inked from our last class.

    TIGHT ENDS
    FR Dennis Scott (82)
    SR Jake Long (84)
    FR Chris Beck (70)
    ---When we brought in Dennis Scott, we didn't know he would turn out to be this good. This kid reminds us of Dustin Keller, the Purdue product who's now on the New York Jets. At 6'1", 222lbs, Scott doesn't have ideal TE frame but lined up in that spot, he has quick initial burst and he has one of the best hands on the team already. Jake Long will be the backup TE and is similar to Scott in skills, aside from Scott's hands.

    LEFT TACKLES
    SR Jeremiah Sirles (96)
    JR Tyler Moore (79)
    FR Sean Roberts (72)
    ---Sirles has established himself as one of the top LT's in the nation. He's quick off the line and does a great job of keeping Taylor Martinez clean from opposing rushers. Tyler Moore's a decent prospect who should have the LT job next year. Sean Roberts will be redshirted.


    LEFT GUARDS
    SR Andrew Rodriguez (91)
    FR Tommy Coleman (82)
    JR Ryan Klachko (81)
    ---Rodriguez teamed up with Sirles to give us one of the better left side of the lines in the nation. Both Sirles and Rodriguez are top NFL prospects who should be starters in the next level. Coleman is the heir apparant and we feel he's well on his way to becoming a top level guard in college.

    CENTERS
    SR Cole Pensick (85)
    SO Ryne Reeves (81)
    ---Cole Pensick flies under the radar with his play. Not overly flashy and not as strong of a prospect as the other 3 starters on the line but he makes all the line calls.


    RIGHT GUARDS
    SR Brent Qvale (93)
    JR Mike Moudy (79)
    ---Qvale makes up the 4th SR on this line, giving us one of the top offensive lines in the nation. Qvale's excellent on power I and is one of our more athletic linemen we have.


    RIGHT TACKLES
    FR Craig Jackson (83)
    SO Zach Sterup (78)
    FR Nick West (65)
    ---Craig Jackson is the lone non-SR on this line and he's a freshman! He came in during our 1st recruiting class and while we are excited to have him starting, we would feel that much better if it was an upper classmen. Still he's been pushed hard by the coaches and going up against our tough defensive linemen, we think Jackson is ready.


    LEFT ENDS
    SR Jason Ankrah (87)
    JR Jay Guy (71)
    FR Marvin Bowers (80)
    FR Dylan Anderson (78)
    ---Ankrah is not the fastest end by any means...in fact he maybe one of the slowest. But he gets off his blocks and is a tough run stuffing DE. Any pass rushing he can get will be an added plus. One guy we are VERY intrigued by is JR Jay Guy. At 6'1", 303, he has 87spd and 91 str...his size, speed and strength combination really wants us to see what he can do and if he can generate a good pass rush. But he will have to unseat Jason Ankrah to do so.


    RIGHT ENDS
    SR Eric Martin (88)
    FR Gene Coleman (83)
    ---Eric Martin is the complete package. A tough run stuffing end but just as equally effective rushing the passer. His 80 speed makes him a tough matchup for any tackle he goes up against. Gene Coleman is a stud in the making and next year will get his chance.


    DEFENSIVE TACKLES
    SR Thad Randle (87)
    JR Chase Rome (85)
    SO Todd Peat (84)
    JR Jay Guy (78)
    ---Here we have an intriguing foursome at DT. Randle is the big bodied DT who plays like a NT...can hold blocks and stuffs the run. Then you have Chase Rome, a quicker type DT who could conceivable play DE in 3-4 sets.
