Big Red Breakfast Details - Thenarse Not Starting?

Life in the Red posts about the happenings at the Big Red Breakfast, the biggest news of which is this:

-- Pelini told the crowd Matt O'Hanlon, a senior walk-on from Bellevue, may start at free safety ahead of junior Rickey Thenarse, who's a tremendous hitter but sometimes operates outside the context of the defense, according to Marvin Sanders. The 5-11, 195-pound O'Hanlon played in 10 games last season, mostly on special teams. He had three tackles. As a sophomore in 2006, he played in all 14 games and made eight tackles.

If you want to get someone's attention, take away the one thing they want most, and for Rickey Thenarse that'd be playing time as a starter. If that doesn't do it, the guy is going to fall further down the depth chart.

No doubt Thenarse will see the field, though. If Pelini feels comfortable in starting O'Hanlon against this offense, that's a good thing. We may possible need both of them anyway.
