It's Tuesday, which means 11 days till the Nebraska Cornhuskers strap it up vs. BYU. Obviously, Matt Turman is the original man who came from third string to win a National Title, but we'll let everyone else have their narrative.
Bill wrote his Nebraska specific preview back in June, which I've brought back for you here. He has Nebraska in a fair position of Tier 3 in the Big Ten with Wisconsin, Michigan, Penn State and Minnesota.
Other Nebraska links of the day include:
The Daily Nebraskan has their best case/worst case scenario for Nebraska. It looks honestly like what everyone else says.
Of the 21 walk-ons in the Huskers' class of 2012, eight have earned scholarships by working their way into prominent roles.
I have a problem with this piece, as yes the Walk-On's are good from this group. However, it hides the fact that out of the 17 kids that Nebraska signed, it's been a very hit or miss group with a lot of misses.
Hits: Tommy Armstrong, Jordan Westerkamp, Greg McMullen, Imani Cross, Vincent Valentine

Milk Carton: Michael Rose-Ivey, Paul Thurston, Corey Whitaker
Peace out homie: Jared Afalava, Leroy Alexander, Thomas Brown, Avery Moss, Aaron Curry
I suppose it's just like any other class, but the fluff towards hitting on walk-on's just hides the fact that the class stunk.
The two were trying for a hardship appeal, which would have let them play immediately. Do you think they miss being at Nebraska with the LB and TE spots up for grabs?
The second-round pick had his second sack in two preseason games.
The Cowboys stunk on Sunday night in San Francisco. But, through 2 games, Gregory has gotten most of the love from the DFW press, and that's saying something.
Today's song of the day is one where either you like it or you're wrong.
