Like a kid with a new toy

I found a new toy for my blog site and I want to show it off. It’s a polling widget. Since this is my favorite sports time of the year (college football season) is almost upon us, I will kick this baby off with a Nebraska football poll. The Nebraska football team begins this year with brand new coach, Bo Pelini, and expectations are high in Lincoln, Nebraska. So my first poll will be a question about their wins this season. You will find the poll at the top right in my sidebar. Please vote and give me feedback on possible other polls to create.

What a comeback. Huskers 9 Aggies 8 and then some.

I know this is somewhat old news to those who live here in Nebraska but I had to post this.

This weekend the Huskers posted one of the greatest come-from-behind victories in Nebraska baseball history. With the victory and another in the second game the 5th ranked Huskers pulled closer to first place in the Big 12.

In game one, Nebraska erased an 8-4 deficit by scoring five runs in the bottom of the ninth. On an emotional day where senior day and parents’ day were combined due to Saturday’s rainout, senior Mitch Abeita delivered the game-winning hit, singling up the middle on a 1-2 pitch to score Bryce Nimmo from second and end A&M’s conference-record Big 12 winning streak at 16 games.

They also pulled out the second game of the double-header to take the series from the conference leading Texas A&M Aggies. Go Huskers!

The whole story can be found here.

Update: With the Huskers defeating Creighton 8 – 1 tonight and a conference leading Texas A&M loss to Texas-Arlington, Nebraska is just a half game from 1st place. Woo Hoo!!
