Martinez is excited and so you should be too. NINE DAYS.
Martinez wants to see Nebraska deploy the no-huddle, up-tempo offense more. (I hope your computer buffers better than mine.)
...with a week and a half before the season opener it appears as if Nebraska still has some position battles going on up front.
Moderately concerning but I trust Pelini's staff.
More Nebraska football and other stories after the Jump!
I'm pretty excited for Cross. Can you imagine the Diamond formation with Cross, Abdullah, Martinez and Burkhead?
Brett Maher wins both the Lou Groza and Ray Guy awards.
No way in hell that happens. He's a Nebraska kicker! Also I'd like to note that in their best-case scenario, Nebraska wins October and wins the Big Ten. SEE? (ESPN really went to fantasy world with their "worst case".)
The LJS takes a look at Nebraska's secondary and things look promising.
"My biggest concerns obviously are with the backups and the guys that are a play away from getting in there and being able to execute what we're asking them to execute," Pelini said.
Slightly important, don't you think?
Not sure why Sam is delivering an update on Northwestern's recruiting, but there you go. (It's actually about Nebraska but he used "NU".)
Nebraska really is the Green Bay Packers of college football.
UCLA is running a 3-4 defensive scheme. Will that be a problem for our run game?
Volleyball starts their season this Friday against Saint Louis at 7pm CDT on BTN.com. Their match against last season's NCAA champion UCLA will be carried on the Big Ten Network at 6pm CDT Saturday. Good luck, ladies!
An update from the athletic department about the women's soccer team. They'll be hosting Virginia Tech (No. 16), Iowa State and New Mexico this coming weekend.
Rose Bowl committee meeting in Lincoln.
Northwestern's blog took a moment to ask us questions. I may have upset a couple of them by calling our loss "charity". I'm actually really worried that I'm going to be heckled come October 21st. Please, Nebraska, beat Northwestern? (Not like how you beat Wisconsin, but for reals.)
The Michigan State blog also asked us questions. We all mostly agreed that MSU is Missouri with a better coach.
Let's hope Nebraska doesn't have to face South Carolina with Lattimore healthy...unless it's in the MNC game, of course.
ESPN said Wednesday that the Longhorns' first two games - both at home - will be televised on the network, which still hasn't struck deals with most major national distributors.
No unicorns? Disappointment.
