COMMENTARY

Stryker

Maybe this spread option can be Taylor Martinez’s offense after all. It better be, since Burkhead could be unavailable for a while.”

Tad Stryker, HuskerMax

Whitney

The defense still looked a little vulnerable, especially in the middle of the field.”

Chris Whitney
KLIN

Vogel

It’s possible [Martinez is] not just an uncommon talent. He might be an uncommon thinker too.”

Brandon Vogel
Hail Varsity

Neeley

Hard to remember the last time Nebraska committed just two penalties and committed zero turnovers in a game.”

Todd Neeley
Hastings Tribune

Sipple

Beck is like a toddler with toys spread all over the living room floor. Which one next?”

Steve Sipple*
Lincoln Journal Star

Chatelain

The competition will get better. Nebraska must, too. Especially on defense.”

Dirk Chatelain*
Omaha World-Herald

Shatel

There are a lot of weapons in this offense. And, suddenly, a director under center with a ton of confidence.”

Tom Shatel*
