Welcome to Husker Heartbeat – a sampling of links and quick wit to start your morning! Keep checking each morning, Monday-Friday, for new links! We look for the offbeat as well as the straightforward – so don’t just think of us as a typical link farm!

A quick abbreviation key FYI: OWH=Omaha World-Herald, LJS=Lincoln Journal-Star, CN=Corn Nation, BRN=Big Red Network, HI=Huskers Illustrated, BRR=Big Red Report. If we need to add more – we will. Others, like ESPN, are self-explanatory.

Cool? Cool!

*Connie Yori and the Northern Iowa head coach have a long connection and friendship. Guess that means the Panthers will lie down spread eagle on the court in Minny and give the Husker a walkover game.

*Because you’re just dying to know which JUCO player Doc Sadler might recruit next, Brian Rosenthal of the LJS hoofed it down to Hutchinson, Kan., for the national tournament.

*Turner Gill doesn’t want his assistants to cuss on the practice field. Although this appears to be an infringement of some great divine right for coaches, trust me: They’ll live. For that money especially.

*BRN takes a gander at Idaho.

*A Washington defensive end gets booked on an investigation of assault. I don’t even know what that means.

*The Big East bemoans its potential demise. What? Huh?
