Look for more Corn flakes as the season approaches, links are coming in faster than a blitzing linebacker.

Big 12 preseason power rankings - Tim Griffin has NU at #4-
4. Nebraska: Last year's late finish has Cornhusker fans believing the magic is back with Bo Pelini. But breaking in a new quarterback and trying to find some deep receiving threats will keep the Cornhuskers from dreaming about a Big 12 title -- at least for this season.

Life in the Red: LBers need to be more physical
We have to get to the point where there are no free passes," Ekeler continued. "If a receiver's going to drag across the middle, we're going to take his damn head off. "We're going to be physical in the run game. We're not going to take a side on a fullback. We're going to hit him right under the chin -- split his chin -- and get off and make the play."
I don't have much doubt that Mike Ekeler's can back up this kind of talk this year. There are enough of them that if they're not performing at a high level, they're not playing - CB.

A review of the changes in the SEC Media and Ticketholders Policy.
If this is how big money affects the way we experience college football, I hope it never happens to the Big 12. The restrictions are incredible - if I were doing a SEC-based Maple Street Press yearbook, I'd be especially concerned about Getty Images' ability to do their jobs. - CB
