Mike Riley News Conference (9/12/16): Huskers Have Too Many Penalties

In this week's game notes, there is a subtle change on the depth chart:

While Devine Ozigbo started against Wyoming, based on what I saw Saturday, I'd have Terrell Newby listed ahead of Ozigbo this week.

Penalties for things that happen after the play is over are the worst.

You'd think that with as much as Mike Riley and Danny Langsdorf love to run the jet sweep, the defense would have seen it enough in practice to know how to defend it.

Might start by having some guys block for the return men. Just throwing an idea out to see if it's worth considering.

Special teams really have been a joke in the first two weeks of the season.

And he still took the job!

Some injury updates:

Riley said Lamar Jackson suffered a groin injury. Also notes Reilly has a hamstring problem and Alonzo Moore shoulder. Stoltenberg day2day.

Going to need those two receivers this Saturday, that's for sure.

Tommy Armstrong and Jordan Westerkamp also talked with the media.
