COMMENTARY

Vogel

Based on Saturday, things are going to heat up quickly for Darlington.”

Brandon Vogel
Hail Varsity

Hamar

There is a long way to go, but it was certainly a nice start for the 61-year-old Riley.”

Bob Hamar*
Grand Island Independent

Sherman

Armstrong likely needs not worry about a serious challenge to his position as the No. 1 quarterback.”

Mitch Sherman

Muessel

The coaching staff finally showed their hand a bit in how they’ll utilize the smorgasbord of I-back talent.”

Grant Muessel
Hail Varsity

Chatelain

The blueprint sounds easy on a 70-degree day in April. Can Nebraska stay unified during the Riley era?”

Dirk Chatelain*
Omaha World-Herald

Barfknecht

It’s good to see Banderas in a good mood again. That makes him much more likely to leave oppo­nents in a bad one.”

Lee Barfknecht*
Omaha World-Herald

Stryker

In year one of the transition to Riley’s offense, the big questions will be how much change, and how soon?”

Tad Stryker
HuskerMax

Shatel

Langsdorf and Riley are not going to force their offense down their players’ throats.”

Tom Shatel*
Omaha World-Herald

Sipple

This is Armstrong’s show, until further notice.”
