COMMENTARY

Stryker

It makes you wonder how high the Huskers’ ceiling will be if they decide not to be their own worst enemy.”

Tad Stryker
HuskerMax

Johnson

Westerkamp’s instincts remain remarkable, and there’s no question he’s gunning for an all-Big Ten season.”

Derek Johnson
HuskerMax

Muessel

It seems this could be the year where it doesn’t take Nebraska six games to ‘get it’ defensively.”

Grant Muessel

Callahan

Nebraska’s offense and defense looked like they were in mid-season form.”

Sean Callahan

Sipple

Armstrong's performance Saturday – as a runner, passer and field general – was tantalizing.”

Steve Sipple*
Lincoln Journal Star

Shatel

It’s hard to remember a recent Nebraska stage with so many stars.”

Tom Shatel*
Omaha World-Herald

Chatelain

We witnessed Saturday the launching pad for potentially the best running back season by a Husker since Mike Rozier in 1983.”

Dirk Chatelain*
Omaha World-Herald

Vogel

This year’s Nebraska team beat a Florida Atlantic squad that had a pretty good defense last year and that’s about what we know.”
