Head Coach Mike Davis to continue with Nebraska Danger

Nebraska Danger lost United Bowl but nobody can blame them for succumbing to Sioux Falls Storm, who started as overwhelming favorites. In fact, their performance was more than honorable and Head Coach Mike Davis has the merit of building a highly competitive team. Fortunately for him and the fans, Davies will return for 2014 to train the same players and there is a good chance for Nebraska to return to the final, one year from now.

Head Coach Mike Davis to continue with Nebraska Danger

Under his leadership, the team grew from one young and lacking experience into a formidable opponent that dominated its division. Much to his credit, coach Davies found a way to win games away from home, something that the Danger failed to achieve in previous seasons. This is one of the reasons for why they made it so far and the re-signing for 2014 comes as no surprise for those who watched the team perform in the previous season.

By acknowledging his performance and building on the increasingly high fan base, Team Owner and President Charlie Bosselman proves one more that he is a man with a vision. Davies emerged as a true leader of the team and lead by example, something that former coaches failed to do and that’s something that rarely happens even in Major League Football. The coach is thrilled with the Bosselman family’s decision and promises not to let some down in 2014.

He feels at home at Grand Island despite the fact that he was born and raised on the opposite coast and played for local teams for much of his youth. He found a home in Nebraska and the Danger proved to be a team capable of responding to each of his commands, not to mention one ambitious group always aiming higher goals.

Sioux Falls Storm wins United Bowl

One of the most important games of the week for those who are passionate about the IFL is 2013 United Bowl and this year it was Nebraska Danger and Sioux Falls that fought for the trophy. Nebraska started with the second chance and the fact that they were going to play on the road only aggravated their issues. Add to this the fact that Sioux Falls is much more experienced and has been around for a longer period of time, and it comes as no surprise that everyone was expecting an easy victory for the hosts.

http://www.goifl.com/news/news-archive/1-latest-news/1466-danger-set-to-travel-to-sioux-falls-for-united-bowl is a shining example of website where informative articles were suggesting such an outcome. While there is plenty of value in these articles and it is obvious that they were written by professionals, Nebraska proved everyone wrong by exceeding expectations. In the end, they felt by 43 points to 40, but although the result prevented them from lifting the trophy, it is honorable.

2013 was a good season for both of them and after 15 games, each had 11 victories and just four defeats, while splitting the direct fixtures. The head to head record indicates that the hosts had to expect a good fight from Nebraska, and that’s exactly what the Danger served them on Sunday. Over the course of several years, the team was built one step at a time and the recent additions proved to be very inspired. Manager McCoy plays a central role in bringing these promising players together and turning a group of football players into a team capable of keeping the Sioux Falls Storm at Bay.

The hosts eventually avenged the defeat suffered at the beginning of the season when Nebraska ended one of their lengthiest winning streak. It is worth mentioning that their home arena is frequently referred to as the “Capital of Indoor Football” to understand how close the visitors came from achieving a remarkable performance. This time they came painfully close but there are good reasons for optimism and next season, the Danger could cause a major upset against the same opponents.

If we were to draw a conclusion about the 2013 United Bowl we should begin by praising both teams for their offensive efforts, without diminishing the merits of the defense. At the end of the day it was the superior experience of the Storm that made the difference.
