Notes from yesterday's practice - Paul Thurston looks like he'll be making the start at center in place of Mark Pelini. And Ryne Reeves. The Huskers will likely be missing Zach Sterup from the line as well.

Paul Thurston, who finished the game up at Iowa, right now would be the leading candidate to start," Barney Cotton said. "We are also looking at Zach Hannon. We've moved Dylan Utter there from the backup left guard spot to also playing center. They are all three getting pretty equal reps right now."

Randy Gregory is cleared to play so Huskers fans will get to see him play one more time in a Husker uniform. Maybe he can put on an audition for them there NFL scouts.

Who knows what's going to happen against USC. Maybe Barney Cotton will be a mastermind head coach in one game.

Well, as you can imagine there are a bunch of NFL guys who've gone back to coach college, though not so many with a legit shot at an NFL position in a short (year-ish) window.
