It's Game Week One! So to kick off the fact that it's only a few days away from the home opener against Southern Miss, it is time for another twitter blitz. While the Golden Eagles have been a formidable opponent in the past, history weighs against them.
And with a hurricane looming on the horizon for the area, they may have other things on their mind.
From the Nebraska side of preparation this week, since there is no game time competition to spark talk, any topic or position is fair game.
There may be another QB battle brewing on the horizon next year, as depth at the position is still up for grabs.
Will QB Armstrong redshirt? TBD, Pelini said. "If we need him to win a championship, that's what we'll do." Concern is this year, not next.
Depth has been a concern for one area this off-season, at running back. But according to Bo Pelini, it is not a problem.
Also a good sign this week, QB Taylor Martinez and his confidence level.
But it is not just Martinez garnering the attention for the confidence level. There are competitions all over the field, like potential center Justin Jackson.
There was praise for plenty of offensive players this week. Kenny Bell (who has improved blocking), Jamal Turner (who upped his game knowledge), Imani Cross (a freakish freshman, a man), Tommy Armstrong, and of course, Red Burkhead (who studies other backs, wants every snap, and wants a championship). Of course, everything is sunshine and roses before a game may be played. The best players will continue to see the praise heaped upon them by showing their ability to back up the words with gameday action.
