Nebraska Football

Nebraska’s football team, the Cornhuskers, is a good team with awesome statistics. Nebraska ranks fourth among all college teams with 862 wins in history. Nebraska has won 412 games since 1970. Nebraska has at least had nine wins in each of the past four seasons. Nebraska has the record for winning their season openers.Nebraska has more conference championships than any other Big Ten team. John Papuchis, their defensive coordinator, is the fourth-youngest defensive coordinator in the country. Nebraska will play ten teams that played in a bowl game in 2011. Nebraska returns 100 percent of its starting special teams. They also return 89 percent of its scorers from last season. Nebraska has a home game sellout streak that started in 1962.

The roster includes 146 players from 23 different states. In the past three seasons the blackshirts rank 2nd. At least three players have been drafted in the last 43 drafts. They average six players to be drafted in the last 50 years. Nebraska’s 345 all-time draft picks ranks fifth among all of the college football teams. Their lineman coach has three sons currently on the team. Rex Burkhead has run for the most yards since Ahman Green. Burkhead is third on Nebraska’s all-time rushers list. Eight players are about to get their degrees. Last season three Huskers earned big academic awards. Taylor Martinez sets the total offense records for a freshman and sophomore. Martinez enters the 2012 season in sixth place for Nebraska’s career passing charts.

He has to do this while the police are on a nationwide man hunt to find him. He was being transferred to a jail when the bus tipped over and he escaped.

Fairytale Story

The Race


Harry the Hare challenged Thor the Tortoise to a race. Harry wanted to race at Memorial Mountain, so they would race there. They would race on March 26, 1210 B.C. Harry wanted to see who was faster. Harry and Thor were about to begin. The timer started and the hare got off to a huge lead, but after about a minute of running, Harry broke his ankle. He was in so much pain that he passed out. The tortoise took a shortcut and he didn’t see Harry, so Thor couldn’t help him. Harry stayed unconscious for a long time and Thor won the race. The paramedics eventually came and he was released from the hospital the next day.

For or Against Argument

I disagree because people that play sports wouldn’t get home until around eight. If we had homework then we wouldn’t get enough sleep, and we would be super tired for the next day, and it would be extra long to make the day worse. A lot of people would take a long time to adjust to the new schedule. The school would have to pay the teachers more and they would overspend and then everyone would be laid off.
