Commentary

Shatel

There could be a quarterback 'situation' next fall. Look for Brion Carnes to push Taylor Martinez

Omaha World-Herald
Sipple

Turner's quick emergence … is a welcome development for an offense that isn't exactly loaded with explosive and proven playmakers.

Lincoln Journal Star

Will the young guns we saw in Lincoln Saturday be there when the lights come on in the fall? They have to be for this offense to be formidable.

It's something that I myself have preached year after year. It's the Spring game. It means nothing. But I actually disagree this time.

Big Red Report
Husker Mike

I haven't seen Turner throw the ball, but he'd have to be Peyton Manning-like to convince me that he belongs at quarterback.

McKewon

Here's what I saw: A haphazard three-hour practice with parameters that seemed to clash with each other.
