Husker Football
If nothing else, NU has dramatically raised the bar in recruiting.

Eleven states have passed medical marijuana laws since 1996: California, Alaska, Arizona, Colorado, Hawaii, Maine, Montana, Nevada, Oregon, Vermont and Washington.
Medical Marijuana
The Supreme Court questioned whether state medical marijuana laws might be abused by people who aren't really sick as it debated Monday whether the federal government can prosecute patients who smoke pot on doctors' orders.
Medical Marijuana

all operation iraqi freedom cards are from www.omaha.com
At 9:34 PM EST on March 19, 2003 (5:34 AM local time in Baghdad on March 20), United States and United Kingdom forces consisting of 40 cruise missiles and strikes led by 2 F-117s from the 8th Fighter Squadron (supported by Navy EA-6B Prowlers) and other aircraft began conducting military operations against the state of Iraq designed to disarm Iraq of its weapons of mass destruction and to remove the Iraqi Regime from power.

Husker Football
Turner Gill spent 17 years at Nebraska and four minutes on his farewell speech.
Husker Football
In a hastily called press conference Friday afternoon, Gill announced he was leaving Nebraska to pursue his dream of becoming a head football coach.
Husker Football
The 42-year-old receivers coach, the last link to the Tom Osborne era, gathered his players together Friday afternoon to say goodbye, then stood at a podium an hour later to make it official.
Husker Football
The former icewater-in-the-veins quarterback, who rarely showed emotion as a player or a coach, paused midway through his speech, shuffled some papers, then turned his back as he wept.
Husker Football
Gill said he's leaving with no job offer, just a leap of faith and a dream of running his own program.
Husker Football
"You've got to know Turner," Osborne said. "He's a very spiritual person. He just felt called to do it this way."
Husker Football
One week after the Huskers failed to earn a bowl trip for the first time in 36 years, the last assistant of Osborne's exited into uncertainty.
Husker Football
Gill was one of two assistants Bill Callahan retained when he became head coach in January. The other - tight ends coach Scott Downing - was hired by Frank Solich in 2003.
Husker Football
"It's sad," Osborne said, "and yet on the other hand, this marks, what, 42 years of continuity? Every player we've had during that 42-year period could turn on the TV or come visit practice and there was somebody they could relate to, somebody they knew. Now, almost totally, that's gone.
Husker Football
Callahan was visibly affected by Friday's news and was somber as Gill stood at the podium. Gill said he spent long hours praying over the decision.
Husker Football
He lost his composure when he got to the part of the speech about the players. He stepped away from the podium for about 45 seconds, wiped his eye and continued.
Husker Football
Gill was Nebraska's starting quarterback from 1981 to '83 and led the Huskers to a 28-2 record and three Big Eight titles.
Husker Football
His '83 squad finished 12-1 and missed a two-point conversion for the national championship against Miami.
Husker Football
Gill took that experience to the sidelines at Nebraska, where he coached quarterbacks Tommie Frazier, Scott Frost and 2001 Heisman Trophy winner Eric Crouch.
Husker Football
The Huskers won three national championships with Gill as quarterbacks coach in the 1990s.
Husker Football
Gill declined to say which jobs he would pursue, but the market appears to be active.
Husker Football
Fifteen Division I coaches have been fired or resigned since mid-November.
Husker Football
