Nebraska scrimmaged today in Memorial Stadium. Things happened again. These are some of them.
Tanner Lee will have 2 years of eligibility starting next season. #Huskers— Connor Happer (@thehappster) August 13, 2016
Quarterback Tanner Lee, the transfer from Tulane, has been granted another year of eligibility. He can’t play this season, but, well, you never have enough experienced quarterbacks if you want to be good. Just ask Ohio State, those sunsabitches that hoard them all and win championships because of it.
I am excited about this. It gives us a crossover or layover in case Patrick O’Brien doesn’t work out.
Riley is pretty torn on what to do with Tre Bryant at this point. He has clearly impressed. Redshirt decision will go down to the wire.— Connor Happer (@thehappster) August 13, 2016
TRE BRYANT WILL SAVE US FROM EVERYTHING.
I’m only slightly sarcastic, because, well, hell, maybe he will. Right now you have Terrell Newby, Devine Ozigbo, and Mikale Wilbon. Does Bryant add more to that?
Working w the 3rd team Tre Bryant busted off runs of 22, 14, 15, fresh has some skills, he broke a TON of tackles, creates lanes. #Huskers— Nick Gregath (@NickESPN1480) August 13, 2016
It’s not like Riley can’t pull Bryant’s redshirt after a game or two if the top three aren’t getting the job done - especially when you consider our opponents. If we can’t run the ball successfully against Fresno State and Wyoming, it’s not going to be great when we get to Oregon or Big Ten opponents.
Therefore, Tre Byrant!
Riley says Greg Simmons was moving arms and legs and was alert. Simmons was carted off late in practice after a nasty collision. #Huskers— Christopher Heady (@heady_chris) August 13, 2016
Simmons is a freshman linebacker out of Fort Pierce, Florida.
Riley said Cethan Carter suffered a concussion the other day and thus sat out today. #Huskers— Jake Bockoven (@jakebockoven) August 13, 2016
Riley seems to feel better about O-line depth this camp. Again he expressed Jalin Barnett will be a good player. Likes Corey Whitaker too.— Brian Christopherson (@HuskerExtraBC) August 13, 2016
Just mention all the eligible offensive linemen. All of them.
I just want to see four of our five starting offensive linemen move their feet well at the start of the season. I want to see guards that can pull and consistently make their blocks. Until then, all this stuff about this guy or that guy on the line is just buzzing in the ear.
While Riley was talking to the media, WR coach Keith Williams was talking 1-on-1 to Joseph Lewis in the middle of the field. #Huskers— Christopher Heady (@heady_chris) August 13, 2016
WR prospect Joseph Lewis visited today. He is a five star prospect.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to get back to “Stranger Things”.
