NebraskaToday was the first day of the Big 12 Media Day down in Kansas City and the Nebraska Cornhuskers were one of the first teams that talked.  Bo Pelini, Joe Ganz, Matt Slausen, and Barry Turner all made the trip to media days.  I don’t know how much thought you can put into the talk out of the players mouths as they aren’t always telling the truth at these events before the season starts.  However, there was some things that Coach Pelini mentioned that we should talk about here.

First off there are four recruits that are not on the active roster because they do not have the qualifying test scores at this time to gain acceptance into the university.  Antonio Bell, David Grant, Justin Rogers, and David Whitmore are all not listed.  Coach Pelini did say the players are working towards those test scores but he is unsure if they will make it in time.

Pelini also mentioned that Anthony Blue is still injured with his torn acl injury.  He will not be ready for camp in a couple of weeks but hopefully soon after he will get back into drills.  Highly touted recruit Baker Steinkuhler has been playing on the defensive line this summer but the coaching staff still aren’t sure where he will line up once fall camp opens.  Coach mentioned that the defense as a team really needs to step it up if they want to compete in the Big 12 Conference.  I think a lot of time is going to be spent on the defensive side of the ball in camp.

Plenty of reporters noticed how slimmed down Matt Slausen was.  Slausen says he is down to a size 40 waist and would like to get down to a 38 but his hips are naturally just to large.  Hopefully a slimmer Slausen will be greater things out of him in the upcoming season.

Joe Ganz had the best joke of the day when asked about looking bigger in the upper body and running the ball a lot more the season.  He cracked a joke “I’m Tim Tebow, baby.”

So what is your outlook on the Huskers upcoming season?  I can’t wait for camp to open up in the next few weeks and see what kind of team will be out on the field.  I have my season tickets and can’t wait for the kickoff!  If you need Nebraska Football Tickets we always send our readers to StubHub!  It is where fans buy and sell tickets and where all transactions are 100% guranteed!
