Corn Flakes: Nebraska Spring Game And BTN

Reese Strickland-USA TODAY Sports

What do we know about the Nebraska football team?

Basically very little, other than Alex Lewis is going to be a starting tackle, and Vincent Valentine and Maliek Collins will start on the defensive line. Oh, we're going to run a "pro style" offense, and the defense will be a base 4-3 with quarters coverage.

We'll get a glimpse of things to come this Saturday when it looks like Nebraska's spring game might be close to a sell out and be televised on BTN.

BTN coverage will start at 1:00 PM Central on Saturday, April 11th and run until 3:00 PM at which point the network will show the Minnesota spring game. At 6:00 PM, BTN will have a one hour show on Nebraska spring football.

Announcers for the spring game are Eric Collins, Damon Benning, and Larry Punteney.

Riley Announces Team Red and Team White Will Battle in the Nebraska Football Spring Game - Corn Nation
Nebraska's spring football game will be split much like the Team Red and Team White format that was used earlier this spring. The game will feature four 20 minute quarters with a running clock and live special teams.

Wednesday practice quick hits
Nebraska head coach Mike Riley said the format will be similar to a game on Saturday, with four, 20-minute quarters and a running clock. The clock will stop on turnovers and changes of possession. Nebraska will kickoff and punt live, Riley said.

Riley takes over for Bo Pelini, who personality-wise is the exact opposite of Riley. Known for his cool, level head and coaching acumen, Riley will try to do what Bill Callahan and Pelini failed to do: win a conference championship. It hasn’t been done in Lincoln since Frank Solich in 1999.

According to Riley, the Huskers have not had many live scrimmages during the spring practice season for health purposes, so Saturday’s spring game will be a good indicator of how the players react at game speed.

Husker Spring Football News: Armstrong Looking Solid

Tommy Armstrong had the best day of the quarterbacks in my eyes and it wasn’t all that close. You should take my observations with a grain of salt (as with anyone observing practice) because there’s so much going on and we can’t see everything, but Armstrong was the most accurate during the live scrimmage plays.

Good things said about Tommy Armstrong Jr!

13. Nebraska. Tim Miles will try to rebound from a disappointing season. Having Terran Petteway return for his senior season would help Miles, who already has seen Tarin Smith and Walter Pitchford leave early. David Rivers is graduating. Shavon Shields will be a building block along with Benny Parker and Tai Webster.

Mike Mayock: Randy Gregory is ultimate boom or bust prospect | ProFootballTalk

Mayock also moved Randy Gregory up to No. 2 on his rankings of the best edge rushers in the class, behind only Dante Fowler of Florida and up from No. 4 in previous rankings. That comes despite Gregory’s admission of a failed drug test at the combine, which Mayock knows is likely to make him slide down draft boards that aren’t virtual. Mayock said he bumped Gregory up anyway because he’s still an "undeniable" Top-10 talent who will have something to prove after his expected tumble to late in the first round "or even into the second round."

Rutgers Recruiting: 8th graders.....really? - On the Banks

When I was in eighth grade, I wasn't thinking about college. I wasn't thinking about much of anything. But the world is changing, especially for talented young athletes.

This is idiotic. Everyone knows it's idiotic, but the recruiting services just go with "times are changing" and join in the idiocy of all it because they want to expand their market AND not be left behind.

"But it's the parents. But it's the coaches." - As long as we get someone else to blame, we're all good, right?

Hoppy beer is awful—or at least, its bitterness is ruining craft beer’s reputation.

That’s when I realized that I had a problem. In fact, everyone I know in the craft beer industry has a problem: We’re so addicted to hops that we don’t even notice them anymore.

I'd agree with this. I can't stand bitter beer. I don't drink it, don't understand the love for it, and because of that, don't bother with craft beer which is frankly 80% crap. Too many with bad aftertaste.

We have Surly in Minnesota. Had a taste of it last night, the Furious. It wasn't bad for one gulp, but that's about it.
