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.

*Sam's Ten "Prove It" Players for Spring Ball.

*Prince Amukamara, a known draft target of the Dallas Cowboys and Houston Texans, has a great day at the NFL Combine. He's tabbed as a riser by USA Today.

*Nebraska lands at No. 8 in an early group of rankings from the Sporting News.

*LJS Sipple and LJS Brian break down the NU wide receivers and tight ends.

*Big 12 basketball rankings for week 7.

*Phil Elmassian returns to Purdue. We're sure he'll do wonders for the Boilers' secondary.

*Slightly disjointed story about former NU linebackers coach Mike Ekeler, who now is one of Indiana's defensive coordinators. Cool guy - but the humorous quotes don't always come across in print.

*11 National Spring Storylines to Watch as Camp nears. Two of them include questions about Ohio State and Michigan.

*Ole Miss looks set to replace its Col. Reb mascot with a black bear. A black bear. In Mississippi. Well, they are said to roam around the areas of the Mississippi River. Of course it's called the Louisiana Black Bear.

*Nick Saban has his statue in Tuscaloosa.

*Early enrollees to watch nationwide - including Ohio State's Braxton Miller.
