Thursday's Corn Flakes

Oh.... oh man... - USA TODAY Sports

News and notes from Nebraska and other B1G teams, along with a pretty pic of Pinnacle Bank Arena.

See, I told y'all to wait till football season to get some good stuff. Granted, media days stuff isn't as good, but you do what you can with what you got. On to the links!

From yesterday, you can get a refresher from our B1G Media Days live blog, along with the entire text of Bo Pelini at the podium, along with some news about players coming and going.

From the news above, losing Tre'vell Dixon isn't a good thing, but getting Randy Gregory in camp is huge. There were many questions about his class work this summer, but it (seems) to be answered. Now, to the Clearinghouse.

Even though Bo Pelini has a lot of young kids on Defense, Sam McKeown of the OWH says Bo isn't going to simplify it, rather bring in multiple things for the team to learn.

Steve Sipple of the LJS says Bo doesn't want to hear about having to win shootouts (hate to say it but...) while Brian Christopherson thinks that Taylor Martinez is comfortable and ready for his final run in Lincoln. ($)

Grant Teaff and Bobby Bowden joined Tom Osborne at Lincoln NorthStar to talk to the Nebraska Coaches Association multi-sport clinic. Great stuff shared here. ($)

Another OTE piece on Nebraska, this time they did something that compares Nebraska type food to the team and Warren Buffet, I didn't really get the jist. Maybe you can try.

If you want to read the condensed notes from Day 1 of Big Ten Media Days, you can get that right here. For those that want some insights from specific communities, I have amassed some pieces below.

Maize n Brew wants to run through a wall for Brady Hoke.

Jerry Kill doesn't want to be average. Neither do we Jerry, neither do we.

Pat Fitzgerald says it's time for action, while his QB Kain Colter supports the O'Bannon case vs. the NCAA.

Here's the transcripts from Purdue's Darrell Hazell, Illinois' Tim Beckman, and Penn State's Bill O'Brien.

Alfonzo Dennard had his day in court yesterday, and... to be continued.

Adam Carriker, who was lost for the year after an injury in Washington last year, will start this year on the PUP list. (Physically Unable to Perform)

The Bank is getting closer.

There's been a lot of talk about "slowing down" college spread offenses. Spencer Hall takes that though and tells you why it's not gonna happen in a fantastic piece. Dana Holgorson laughs at you and tells you to DEAL WITH IT BRO.

Meanwhile, Eric LeGrand and Mike Leach have pretty cut and dried opinions about that targeting rule.

Watch this, and if you can come up with a good hypothesis on how Nick O'Leary is still alive, I'm down to hear it.

Go home, Bob Stoops, you're drunk.

The NCAA is arguing that the suit the Paterno family brought upon them should be thrown out. Meanwhile, Penn State's bowl share from the B1G will go to a child advocacy charity.

Miami of Ohio giggles at your alternate uniform.

Get used to the name "New Year's Six" instead of BCS, folks. No, I'm serious.

The US Soccer Team, in true Bo Pelini style, "did some good things" at Cowboys Stadium Wednesday.

Very candid comments from Bill Belichick on the Aaron Hernandez situation yesterday.

No birthdays or history lesson today folks. We'll have more from Big Ten Media days as well as the podcast later on. Have a great morning.

Additional note from Jon:

This came in a little late last night, but today a community member from our rival site BGHP goes under the knife and is asking for prayers in his battle against cancer. I'd say it's not only okay to aid and abet the enemy in this case, but encouraged.
