Sargent dethrones Howells

November 22, 2011

LINCOLN--It was a made for television special: No. 1 Howells against No. 2 Sargent. Both teams came into the 2011 NSAA Class D2 State Championship undefeated with identical 12-0 records.
Howells was looking to win title number 10.
Sargent wanted to remove the disappointing feeling after being blown out by this same Howells team just one year ago.
The Bulldogs did just that and dropped Howells 21-18 and in the process ended Howells’ 34-game win streak.

Driscoll: Nebraska, Penn State and Ron Brown

November 17, 2011

It's been one week since the firing of legendary coach Joe Paterno for failing to morally do the right thing and report child abuse.
The man who was known for winning, and winning the right way did not do the right thing and it cost him his job, tarnished his reputation, and changed the way many of us will now look at athletics.
I'm a Christian and it's hard for me to come to terms with this and wrap my mind around it. Fortunately, the child predator was caught.
Unfortunately, he wasn't caught soon enough.
Numerous questions will probably never be answered.

Driscoll: Iowa new rival?

November 2, 2011

Last week I went to The Bonfire and I sat down next to a couple of older folks. Being the nosey person I am, I listened to their conversation because they were talking about college football.
We will call them Bill and Bob...because I don't know their names.
They were talking about Taylor Martinez's inability to throw a football correctly and how the loss of Jared Crick for the season might be a good thing because he wasn't a force to be reckoned with.
Then the conversation went like this:
" Exactly who's our rival, Bob?" - Bill
" You know, I don't know. "- Bob
