It may be eight days until Nebraska plays, but it's only six days until college football!
A run-down of sporting stories from yesterday covering Nebraska athletics, the Big Ten and around the world.
When asked how the Huskers will prepare for a team with a new staff, Papuchis said research is key.
"You turn over every rock, look at the resources that are out there and use your best judgment," Papuchis said. "We're not going to know exactly what they're going to try to do coming in here, but we're going to try to get the best idea we can possibly get from all their coaches' backgrounds. We're going to get a feel for what they do and hope that we've taught enough lessons throughout the course of spring ball and fall camp that we apply them next week."
Will Saban find a way to match Osborne's achievement? Will Saban's achievement be more impressive due to the different era of football?
"I know one thing — when we do kind of sort it out, I think we’ll have a very good rotation." - Ron Brown
A lot of confidence in our stable.
Sounds like a solid get. I like these recruits who are very vocal about their commitments.
More Nebraska football and other stories after the Jump!
I guess we'll have to wait and see how Cotton/Garrison's second year in Beck's system goes. I'm hoping it goes well enough that we can have some staff stability. Or at least let Pelini replace Cotton and not public opinion.
"He’s turned out to be faster, more elusive and athletic than we imagined he would be at this point in his career," Pelini said. Cross could play some special teams, too.
The OWH delivers some depth chart news following Pelini's monthly appearance on 'Sports Nightly'. Seems mostly in line with Mike's analysis.
Sounds like Turner might've found the maturity he'll need to find his way back on the field. Another weapon for Martinez and this offense.
I thought we'd settled this? Anyway, long story short, it sounds like rather than waiting for the offense to give a tell about what they're going to do, the defense is going to roll the dice and hope it works. Sounds like a high risk, high reward kind of system. Hope it works for us.
Worked for Rex and Roy but I'm not expecting them to get much traction against Nebraska.
USM sounds like it has a lot of rebuilding to do after last year's C-USA championship and losing Larry Fedora to UNC.
Congratulations and good luck!
"What sort of season should Wisconsin expect from the transfer? Nothing like the year Wilson put forth last year, for one. "
Wisconsin will live and die by the play of two things: Danny O'Brien and their secondary.
"That's all nice and wonderful, but I'm not here for facilities. I'm here for learning football, playing football and trying to get to the next level. Trying to get the guys that I'm playing with to the next level."
Kind of a back-handed compliment there. Wish him well.
Isn't this how the Big 12 was run...?
Tim Brewster has found a job in the SEC. College football: where failure means you still can find employment elsewhere.
