Nebraska Struggling Under Mike Riley

What's wrong with Cornhusker Nation? The truth is right now there is good, bad, and ugly when you talk about Nebraska College Football.  Let's start with the good and many people will probably wonder why I  would name this as the good about Nebraska football. I consider very lucky to write about the passionate fans we have that follow the team. Yes, sometimes they may go over the edge and say things that are not always popular with people. This is called passion and sometimes certain fans will cross the line. When you write about Nebraska college football you must understand that fans sometimes they will say hurtful things to you but its because of the passion. I rather have passionate fans then fans who do not care at all.

Now the bad of Nebraska college football is simple these days losing games that they should win. No matter whom the coach has been recently it seems games we should win we lose. Under Mike Riley it has been real bad and his 2-3 start is not a good thing in Husker Nation. Riley took a job with alot of expectations and right now he is not reaching them. It's getting bad, but Mike Riley has seen nothing yet especially if he continues to lose ball games. Nebraska fans are about winning and do not want excuse they want wins. Until Riley does that he will take a lot of heat from the fans on and off the field.
When it comes to the ugly that is easy it's the blowout losses. Yes, Riley has really not faced that year, but it seems every coach recently has had this problem. If Riley suffers some blowout  losses the heat will really come down on Riley. Some people did not want Riley hired, so when he struggles the negativity will really come to the forefront. Hopefully things will get better for Husker Nation, but I do not see that rifght now. Talentwise Nebraska is not the ebst. It's getting better, but they have a long way to go. Husker Nation will always be my favorite win or lose.

Pittsburgh Pirates Making People Believe Once Again

For the last 18 years when we would talk about the Pittsburgh Pirates it was always in a negative since. Fast forward to 2011 and that is no longer the case anymore. With each comeback and win the Pittsburgh Pirates and their fans are starting to believe this team can do great things. The surprising Pirates, who lead the NL Central by a half-game over Milwaukee and 1½ games over St. Louis entering Wednesday’s games, also are enjoying improved results at the box office. This has made the Team President come out and say they may add players before and after the trading deadline.

This is not the same Pirates that we use to laugh of and made fun of anymore. Last season they only won 57 games. In 2011 they have won 50 already. It looks like the Pirates and the Brewers along with the Cardinals could battle for the National League Central Crown. If the Pirates do win the division this has to go down as the best sports story in 2011. Who would have guessed the Pirates could come so far so quickly. Maybe one guy did their manager Clint Hurdle. It seems he has a way of getting players to believe and win. Today, the Pirates did lose 3-1, and if the Brewers win they could find themselves in second place. No matter what who would have thought the Pirates would be where they are at today.
