Pelini not dwelling on injured players

August 21, 2014

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Nebraska has lost possibly three players for the season to injuries and a bunch of others are ailing, but you won't hear coach Bo Pelini complaining.

"There's no magical thing to injuries. It's a tough sport. Things happen, and there's nothing you can do about it," Pelini said after Wednesday's practice. "Look across the country, we're not the only ones that have some guys hurt."

Nickel back Charles Jackson and linebacker Michael Rose are out with season-ending knee injuries and running back Adam Taylor broke his ankle and probably won't make it back this season.

Huskers' Gregory wants to expand game beyond sacks

August 4, 2014

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Nebraska defensive end Randy Gregory wants to be known for being more than just a pass rusher.

After leading the Big Ten with 10 1/2 sacks last season, he says he needs to become better as a run-stopper.

Gregory's difficulty holding his ground against the run stemmed from his struggle to maintain weight. He dropped as low as 230 pounds last season. Last week, the 6-foot-6 Gregory was up to 248.

Playoffs could create chances for Big Ten teams

July 31, 2014

CHICAGO (AP) — As he watched the BCS championship game last season, Michigan State quarterback Connor Cook could not help but wonder:

What if a playoff system were in place? Would the Spartans be playing for the biggest prize?

No need to wonder anymore. The old BCS system is out. A four-team playoff to determine a national champion is being implemented this season, and that could open some more opportunities for the Big Ten and the other four power conferences.

Pelini: Get rid of Signing Day

July 31, 2014

(AP) — If Nebraska coach Bo Pelini had his way, National Signing Day would be a thing of the past. And the result would be an improved recruiting process.

"You've made a commitment to a young man to come play in your program, why do we have to wait to any certain day?" Pelini said. "Why don't we just go ahead and let's sign on the dotted line, let's get it over with and move forward."
