Senior safety P.J. Smith will play Saturday.
Nebraska wrapped up practices Thursday as it prepares to face Penn State.
It's a shame that Rex Burkhead has been basically sidelined most of his senior year. He is such a role model to the team it hurts when you can't play a guy like Rex. Maybe all the pounding he took last year wore him down to the point that he isn't able to recharge/heal as quickly this year. To bad he can't redshirt, I wonder why?
PSU will be a handful this Saturday and the huskers need to be ready to kick some butt. Their D seems to be very good so I'm praying that we hold onto the ball and not have any give-aways.
Tough to sack teams that use primarily 3 step dropps. That style of football produces many 4&5 yard gains also which is probably why so many long drives and time of posession advantage. Bo's idea of pressuring the short routes would equal 4 rushers and a premium on coverage (or late blitzes which don't seem to be very productive to me). If we can shut down the quick routes on them early, I still hope to see some blitz packages in the second half. Go Big Red!!! wear them down & dominate.
