Huskers lose another heartbreaker

(, AP)

This one was tough. Real tough.

For any Husker fan, what happened on Saturday was a punch to the gut. Actually, it was more like an overhand punch to the chin, after a flurry of body shots

The last few years, Nebraska hasn't been able to win these games. For some reason
or or another, Nebraska can't get the victory against a ranked opponent. I'm beginning to think the Universe is trying to even itself out since our amazing run in the 90s. Or maybe we just have mediocre players? I'm not sure.

The good news is that this team still looked good. Things look bright for the Big 12 season.

Three UNO coaches reach career milestones

Over the last week, three head coaches at UNO celebrated victories with career milestones.

Football head coach Pat Behrns reached 150 wins on Sept. 12. Volleyball head coach Rose Shires got her 400th career win on Saturday. Soccer head coach Don Klosterman got his 175th win on Saturday as well.

Congratulations to these coaches for their long years of service to UNO athletics.

Mavs' Baier and Myers earn Player of the Week honors

It was an impressive week for a couple UNO student-athletes.

Redshirt freshman Nicole Baier put in a total of four goals in the first two conference games of the season to earn the MIAA's Offensive Player of the Week honor for the second week in a row. She scored two goals in each game.
Meanwhile, sophomore Emily Myers earned her second MIAA Specialist of the Week award after her performance during the UNO Volleyball Classic, averaging 11.89 assists and 2.5 digs per set throughout that week.
