John Papuchis - inspiring confidence!
Quite frankly, I think these represent not only this season but every season. Our inability to manage these the last four seasons has kept this team from championships.
If the biggest question on this team is our defense, I like our chances this fall.
If we can manage to control the violent mood swings, Nebraska should be able to manage a 10 or 11 win season.
I'm excited to see this energetic offense we've been promised!
Sounds like the offense will be tested Saturday. (And remember how we were lamenting how McKewon's writing seems held back? Vogel sort of fills that void.)
Carnes is not the No. 2. Or the No. 3. I'm surprised.
CBS reviews the game on Saturday.
The game itself is merely a single act in the production of a Nebraska home game.
A reminder that East Stadium is a work in progress - but Memorial will be quite pretty next fall, don't you think?
Let's hope Ben has a big fall.
The LJS gives a run-down on how Nebraska recruits are faring during their high school seasons.
Women's Soccer (2-3-0)

Randy York checks in with Burroughs and Larson after their successful Olympics.
Big Ten (0-0)

My money is on Sparty here.
Plenty of Nebraska mixed in.
...people might question his math skills so he quickly interrupted his train of thought to correct the record. "You know I went to Iowa, but geez," Bielema said, laughing.
Stop making me want to like you, Biels!
Did you know Solich followed a legend? Well, let the Centre Daily Times tell you about it. (I think Solich's situation was a slight bit different than O'Brien's.)
Pre-Snap Read reallllllly likes Sparta.
Probably for the best.
Texas A&M loses their tune-up game before playing Florida.
Which is worse? Hoke letting Toussaint play or Richt playing games over his players' suspensions?
Unless one of them can be Chris Leak's Tebow, I doubt they play two QBs against Texas A&M.
"I don't know the exact way to set the committee," Boise State coach Chris Petersen said. "But I do know this: It's going to be one of the most important elements of the whole playoff system."
And water is wet.
The Dash returns...which can only mean one thing...FOOTBALL.
