NebraskaFormer Nebraska quarterback Zac Taylor has been released by the Tampa Bay Bucs after they needed to make room on their active roster for a linebacker.  Taylor could possibly resign with the Bucs and be placed on the practice squad but right now no one knows if that will happen or not.

Do the Minnesota Vikings or Atlanta Falcons have room for Taylor?  Those could be two possibilities after reading some message boards this morning.  What about Taylor returning to UNL and being a graduate assistant if he doesn’t pick up an NFL offer?

NebraskaCoach Callahan has issued a statement saying that senior wide receiver Maurice Purify will only be suspended for the first game of the year for his alcohol problems.  Callahan said that Purify has followed all their rules, has gotten the help he needs too, and done everything he has been asked to do so he feels that one game is enough.  Purify will be doing a lot of community service around Lincoln, take random drug / alcohol tests, and cannot be seen in a bar or he will be off the team for good.

I know a lot of college football fans are going to be like, “WHAT, ONLY ONE GAME?”  I agree that it should have been atleast two, but it seems like Mo has really been doing what the coaching staff and legal system has wanted the past six weeks.  Lets hope he keeps his head on straight!

NebraskaThe Missouri Tigers have been picked to win the Big12 North Title over the Nebraska Cornhuskers who the media picked 2nd.  One reason the media loves the Tigers is because they return 15 starters from last years teams including quarterback Chase Daniels.

We all know the Missouri/Nebraska game on October 6th will more then likely decide the Big12 North Title.  Sure the Huskers will be bringing in Sam Keller and new people on the defensive line, but I’m pretty sure we will beat the Tigers by 10-14 points.  GO HUSKERS!
