Nebraska running back Rex Burkhead may be a bit overlooked nationally. But Husker coach Bo Pelini speaks passionately about Burkhead, Steven M. Sipple writes. "He's a tremendous athlete. It's ridiculous, really," Pelini said.
Linebacker Will Compton could hardly contain himself considering the possibilities this season brings for he and his fellow Nebraska seniors — an opportunity to return the Huskers back to college football's elite.
Bo Pelini doesn't like the idea of players committing to a school before their senior year, in part because it makes it more difficult for the Huskers to get recruits on campus before they make their decision.
