A couple of pieces from the Journal Star this morning; Brian Christopherson with the kicking storylines going into camp, while Steve Sipple talks about Ciante Evans being a captain and what that means to him. ($)
Maize n Brew's SpaceCoyote did a FANTASTIC piece on the front 7 schemes Nebraska and Bo Pelini runs right here.

Go to CougCenter this morning and help kick cancer's ass again, please.
