    Husker Heartbeat 2/16: Can Any NU QB Match Taylor's Upside?

    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.


    *Bo finally confirms his hires over the phone - but says he's not quite ready to announce yet. It's Neverending Story that, at this point, might be working in Bo's favor.

    *Taylor Martinez had the best one-game performance of the year in the Big 12, writes ESPN's David Ubben, against Oklahoma State. He writes:

    1. Taylor Martinez vs. Oklahoma State. Nebraska's freshman quarterback went on the road and was unstoppable, bouncing back from one of his worst games of the year against Texas with his best. He threw for 323 yards and five touchdowns on 23-of-35 passing and ran for 112 yards on 19 carries. It earned the Huskers a much-needed 51-41 win in Stillwater.

    Here's a question this morning for Husker fans: Does NU have another quarterback on the roster who can come close to what Martinez did in that one game? And if not - isn't Martinez the guy worth hitching your wagon to?

    *Nebraska waits for an NCAA ruling on freshman pitcher Logan Ehlers, whose eligibility remains in question because he used an advisor during his process of deciding whether he'd play college baseball or in the Major Leagues. The NCAA is all over this one. Cam Newton and Reggie Bush? Not so much.

    *BRN says that the 2010 defensive line could be memorable.

    *Dr Saturday grades part of the 2010 coaching hires. He starts with the retreads. Then moves on to the upgrades, giving a strong grade to Minnesota's Jerry Kill.

    *Ahman Green heads to the CFL.

    *LJS Sipple and Brian Christopherson analyze the running back situation heading into spring. In other words, the Rex Burkhead show. If Lester Ward and Collins Okafor ever wanted to show something, now is the time.

    Cool? Cool!


    *Nebraska fans favor an expansion of Memorial Stadium as long as it doesn’t end the sellout steak.

    *Completely meaningless summer recruiting rankings are out from Scout - Nebraska checks in at No. 12.

    *BRN talks about waiting - while we wait.

    *Oregon’s Jeremiah Masoli will play one more year of college football.

    *ESPN’s Images of the Decade. Pretty cool YouTube video. Husker images at 0:35, 2:25 and 2:50. None of them happy - but it wasn’t a particularly happy decade, was it?

    Cool? Cool!


    *Former Husker Zach Wiegert is a business player in Lincoln’s Haymarket Arena project.

    *The initial Lombardi Watch list include Pierre Allen but not Jared Crick.

    *BRN argues that Bo Pelini’s recruits are beginning to make their biggest impact. We withhold comment on the 2008 class - it appears to have more busts than pleasant surprises - because of the short time window Bo and Co. had in putting it together. The 2009 class appears more promising.

    *Like Antelope Roast? CN has a recipe.

    *The Mountain West just might strike first in the conference expansion wars.

    *One of the bowls not approved? The Christmas Bowl.

    *Excuse our language, Notre Dame, but what the hell is this?

    Cool? Cool!


    *The Sporting News’ Matt Hayes lists Nebraska as the No. 9 home fieldadvantage. Who’s No. 1? A worthy pick.

    *BRN gives an in-depth breakdown of the quarterback race. The Big 12 is full of QB questions.

    *Tim Tebow leads the pack in rookie NFL jersey sales. But Ndamukong Suh is No. 2.

    *Is Cameron Newton the next great quarterback? Or a product of hype?

    *Florida’s football team likes its marijuana, apparently.

    *Colorado thinks it’s a good match for the Pac 10.

    *Penn State believes acoustics will help make Happy Valley a little angrier.

    *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?

    BRN knows it’s March…but they want to talk October, and whether Bo Pelini can tackle those midseason blues. It’s a fair question, but NU spent the midseasons of 2008 and 2009 tinkering with the defense and offense, respectively, You’d think, by 2010, the schemes and identities are in place. You’d hope.

    The LJS crew talks Big 12 spring camps.

    More tales of loyalty from the Nebraska women’s basketball team.

    The prospects of Oregon’s 2011 season may hinge on whether head coach Chip Kelly boots or suspends several of his best players. He’ll announce his decision Friday. Here’s a primer.

    Wonderlic quarterbacks scores are out…and Oklahoma QB Sam Bradford leads the way.
