I hope all the talk and hype about Nebraska returning to it's football roots isn't just fluff to keep the fans busy in the off season! I just read an article about Carl Pelini and the restoration of of the "old school" values that Nebraska once had.

Nebraska football players used to intimidate (aka - scare the hell out of) opponents. They would be petrified of the scarlet and cream. This hasn't been happening in the past few seasons.

Pelini and the gang hope to push the team past their comfort zone, at every practice and every drill. They are expecting maximum effort 100% of the time. That is the only way they see it, and what a great way it is!

Spring practice begins tomorrow for the Blackshirts (and Redshirts) tomorrow, and you really can't judge too much until you see the players playing on the field. I'm sure that not too many people would disagree with Pelini never asking more than 100%, but anybody else have any comments on this?

I saw that article in the Kearney Hub. I think it's great that the staff has that much drive and that the players are buying into the new system so readily. I hope that the players ate their Wheaties, because it sounds like they are going to have to earn the positions they want.

I saw in the Urinal Star the lineup for the Huskers and was a bit concerned at the vacancies at LB. Having newbies in that position could get a bit hairy.
I'm not to concerned about young talent at LB. Everyone was talking about how our LB crew was going to be the best in the nation last year. With all the experience and talent we had, it should have been. Yeah, I'd like to have experience in that position, but I think the experience that comes with the coaches will help make up the difference. Honestly, I'm just excited that's its all starting!
Time will tell all, but I don't think TO would of hired a pony when he could have had a horse. once again the Huskers will be a force. one that will scare the hell out of there opponents. Just believe. the pieces of the puzzle are in place, the ship has been up righted. the sails are yet to be drawn but are being mended to withstand any storm. faith. don't look at wins or losses, look at improvement, it will happen. just as you dreamed it would. again huskerland will be proud of there team again. win or loose. Why, this is why, BC instilled a soft program that is unworthy of Nebraska tradition, BP will install a program that will be worthy of your and my devotion to his program. a program that will bleed husker RED.
Well said my friend, well said.
