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!

*New Husker coach Joe Ganz keeps close tabs on Cody Green, apparently, by making Green do 100 “pencil rolls” on the practice field if he sits next to a female student-athlete at lunch, dinner, whatever. The incentive is to sit next to his teammates.

Wise idea? Well, first – is that for all the quarterbacks, or just Cody? Maybe you do “gotta be there,” but punishing kids for their lunch room seating doesn’t strike me as the best way to strengthen team bonds. It might be a funny or high-profile manner of doing it, though, and sometimes effect is what coaches are trying for.

*Oklahoma basketball player Tiny Gallon may have taken a $3,000 payment from an investment banker before last season began. Not good, Big Tiny.

*The OWH has a women’s tournament preview – plus a feature on Dominique Kelley, who, in more than one way, is the hub of the Husker team.

*The incredible story of Nebraska wrestler Craig Brester– told once more with feeling by Lee B.
