BTN LiveBIG: Nebraska research team leads charge to create small surgical robots

Some of humankind’s greatest achievements have been rendered in science fiction before they became science fact. Moonwalks, artificial intelligence, earbuds, electric cars — all were the stuff of someone’s wildest dreams until hard work, ingenuity and perseverance turned them into realities. What’s next? How about small surgical robots that perform practically painless operations on people, along the same lines of the microscopic medical team that heals a patient by traveling into his body in Fantastic Voyage? If miniature versions of R2-D2 wielding teeny scalpels seem far-fetched, think again. At the University of Nebraska, Shane Farritor, alumnus and current professor of

Photo: New Nebraska concept football helmet designs

Alternate uniforms and concept designs have become a huge craze throughout college football.

ROSEMONT, Ill. – A global education experience. That’s a mouthful. And that’s also the goal of Big Ten commissioner Jim Delany for every student-athlete. Live it, learn it, know it. A procession of league athletic directors paraded in front of the media the last two days at the Big Ten’s headquarters and was peppered with myriad questions. What’s going on with the upcoming TV contract negotiations? Are there too many hoops games? Did the College Football Playoff work? Is the graduate transfer rule flawed?

Twenty-four Nebraska baseball players get stuck in elevator

Every season, the Big Ten baseball tourney provides its share of laughs, from players showing their personality while announcing the lineup card to them videobombing in-game dugout interviews. [ MORE: View our Big Ten tourney homepage ] The fun in front of the camera came a day early this year. Tuesday, on the eve of the 2015 Big Ten Tournament, 24 Nebraska players got stuck in an elevator. Yes, they packed a couple dozen people in an elevator. Lucky for us, catcher Tanner Lubach filmed video proof of the mishap, to give everyone an idea of just what the scene

Grad transfer rule comes under scrutiny at Big Ten AD meetings

ROSEMONT, Ill. — During the recent meeting of Big Ten athletic directors, many topics were discussed. And one of the more prominent issues was that of graduate transfers. [ MORE: Q&A: Ohio State AD Gene Smith touches on several hot topics ] Is the concept working as intended? It’s a unique rule that has become a major part of the college sports landscape in recent years. A player earns his degree and still has a year of eligibility left. He then has the option to transfer to finish his athletic eligibility at another school. The catch: The athlete must be
