COMMENTARY

Shatel

NU showed up in a strange place and showed up in the right way.”

Tom Shatel*
Omaha World-Herald

Chatelain

You don’t make ‘SportsCenter’ by avoiding turnovers and fielding punts. But you do win games.”

Dirk Chatelain*
Omaha World-Herald

Sipple

Give credit where it’s due. NU overlooked McNeese State. It didn’t repeat that error.”

Steven M. Sipple*
Lincoln Journal Star

Callahan

Probably my biggest concern tonight with the offense was they were home run or bust.”

Sean Callahan
HuskerOnline

Stryker

Encouraging sign: Armstrong started to involve his tight ends in the attack.”

Tad Stryker

Vogel

Like a lot of pure home run hitters, Nebraska’s still striking out too much to truly be comfortable.”
