What do you think of this blackout concept for the Huskers?

McKewon: Husker defensive coordinator Bob Diaco has a plan, and the Blackshirts have a new vibe

Nebraska offensive line coach Mike Cavanaugh usually isn’t in the best mood to talk when his offensive line doesn’t perform in practice like he’d hoped. But Thursday, when the line struggled, Cavanaugh was excellent and expansive. One reason: His sheer respect for the guys across the line of scrimmage.

“The love of the game and enthusiasm, it’s awesome with the defense,” Cavanaugh said. “Coach (Bob) Diaco and that whole gang. Really enthusiastic. They do a great job of coaching.

Groh says Diaco's organizational skills will be tested but the staff is gelling

Al Groh, the former Virginia head coach and NFL defensive coordinator, looks forward to an early October trip to Lincoln.

That might mean little to you. But it surely means something to Nebraska defensive coordinator Bob Diaco. After all, Diaco worked as a linebackers coach under Groh at Virginia from 2006 through 2008. Learning the 3-4 defense under Groh "was a spectacular education," Diaco said during his introductory news conference at NU in January.

The 73-year-old Groh, now retired from coaching and living near Boston, will serve as an analyst for Westwood One's radio broadcast of the Wisconsin-Nebraska game Oct. 7 in Lincoln.

By the way, Wisconsin also employs a 3-4 defense.

In our HuskerExtra college football preview edition, which comes out Sunday, Groh essentially provides a tutorial on the basic concepts of his 3-4 system, much of which he learned from Bill Belichick and Bill Parcells.

Then there's the Pittsburgh Steelers/Dick LeBeau/Dom Capers 3-4 that dates to the early 1990s, as well as the Wade Phillips-style 3-4.

Each system has its own nuances. Each has been extremely effective.

Groh surmises that Diaco, 44, has been influenced by many coaches.

This much is certain: Diaco is extremely organized, Groh said, and that organization could be particularly important this season.

I have always been a fan of the Alternate Uniforms.

Anything to give out program an edge.

My only concern the Huskers  haven't played very well when it comes to wearing the Alternate Uniforms.

I wonder what others think?

Alternate uniforms are ok. I like these. I have thought some were horrible.
The Huskers have had their fair share of NFL scouts visiting during fall camp. That has included visits from the Atlanta Falcons, Houston Texans, New York Jets, Cleveland Browns, Bears, Indianapolis Colts. Jacksonville Jaguars and Denver Broncos. The NFL scouts could have been at Nebraska to get a look at a number of players, but it’s likely the 6-foot-4, 220-pound Lee was on the list.
