NebraskaThe first day of practice has come and gone for the Nebraska Cornhuskers.  First year head coach Pelini was pleased with the practice even though a lot of work will need to be done before the Huskers kick off the season against Western Michigan on August 30th.

The Huskers will have to fill in a spot on the defensive line as it was announced that Kevin Dixon was kicked off the team for violation of team rules.  Pelini did not say what Dixon did but the Omaha World Herald is reporting that he had two misdemeanor citations in July that have since been dropped.  This could open up a spot for senior Shukree Barfield, sophomore Ben Martin and redshirt freshman Terrence Moore.  Another name could be Baker Steinkuhler as well that could help on the d-line.

Tight-end Hunter Teafatiller was on the 105 man roster and taking reps with the number one offense.  Some people around the program was not sure if Teafatiller would be on the team after his DUI charge over the summer.  Sounds like the coaches are giving him another chance and I’m sure he will be on a short leash all season long.

I will try to have an update up about the second day of practice later today.  Football is here and it is an exciting time!
