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!

*Receiver Chris Brooks, who barely sniffed the field at Nebraska, signed a free agent contract with Tampa Bay Monday. Make of it what you wish. Our readers already have.

*Bo Pelini’s charity golf tournament appears to have been a hit. He’s also slated to speaking a Omaha business motivation seminar that features Colin Powell, Rudy Giuliani, Steve Forbes and Sarah Palin. Don’t worry – it appears this seminar requests an athlete/coach at every stop it makes.

*Tom Osborne wants the Big 12 Championship to rotate back north before 2013, but it would appear he’s in the minority. I’d prefer it stay south, in Cowboys Stadium, where Nebraska can put on an annual recruiting clinic every year it reaches the big game.

*ESPN’s Mark Schlabach ranks Nebraska No. 7 in his post-spring rankings.

*Would the Big 12 pursue Arkansas if the Big Ten picks off Missouri? The Ol’ Ball Coach thinks maybe so.

*Bryce Brown isn’t going to be playing at Tennessee next year. Where to?
