Husker Football Practice Report: BTN Live Tweeting Edition

Nebraska football practices are closed to the media and the when some gets both the opportunity to watch AND COMMENT on what they see, we should take notice. It may be our only insight into what is happening behind closed doors.

Nebraska football practices are closed to the public and the media, and guests who do get the opportunity to observe are cautioned to not share what they see and hear on the internet and in the media. Those rules apparently didn't apply to the BTN crew who sat through this morning's practice, as Dave Revsine and Tom Dienhart gave us their observations on Twitter.

So for those of you that missed it...

The coaches have talked about the depth quite a bit. You may be surprised if Mark Pelini starts at center, but don't think that means Cole Pensick won't play. There will be a rotation, and that's a VERY good thing.

Shouldn't be a surprise to anybody.

I think some of this talk might have been the best kept secret of fall camp up to now.

The question about Randle isn't his talent and ability, it's whether his knee will hold up. The coaches seem confident it will.

Is Gerry going to be used like Dejon Gomes in 2010, where he frequently lined up as a linebacker in a dime role? Too early to tell (and Bo won't anyway), but it's clear that Gerry is going to play, and could play quite a bit this season. And if he does well, he could be used in a "Peso" role next season after Ciante Evans graduates.

Another battle that probably will go down to the wire. I wonder if they'll split the job, like Alex Henery and Adi Kunalic did.

Watch DiNardo rabbit trail onto recruiting rules and how it could impact Nebraska if they made changes, particularly in regard to earlier official visits.

Some people will point out that the BTN crew isn't going to say anything bad about Nebraska. They have a point, but it's not applicable here. BTN's commentators aren't saying whether Nebraska has the talent to beat Michigan or Ohio State...or even Illinois.  What they are telling us is who is emerging in camp, and who might play.

Want to go ahead and start making mental adjustments to the depth chart in your head?  Go ahead.  I won't stop you.
