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.
*Because of his speed and competitiveness, Kenny Bell has the full attention of his teammates. So is Jamal Turner.
*Nice story about three NFL-caliber players - Jared Crick, LaVonte David and Alfonzo Dennard - choosing to play one more year of college football.
*The Longhorn Network is officially here, sporting black in its logo for some bizarre reason. Because UT has a lot of black in its team colors. In Texas' spring game, Case McCoy - Colt's younger brother - appears ready to challenge Garrett Gilbert for the starting QB job.
*Khiry Cooper is content to play two sports even if slows his progress at either one.
*Andrew Green, finally healthy after two years of struggling with a variety of injuries, has moved to cornerback where new coach Corey Raymond is helping him with technique.
*Always willing for a chat, Cody Green says again: He won't transfer. He'll also change positions if it will help the team.
*Dan Beebe backs the Fiesta Bowl in the wake of the stupendous corruption revealed in a fraud probe.
"I feel good about their commitment to do the right thing," Beebe told The Associated Press in a phone interview Friday. "There hasn't been a reluctance or pushback [from Fiesta officials] at all."
Beebe said he has been in contact with Fiesta Bowl officials often in recent weeks and they have asked for help and suggestions for how to reform the organization's leadership structure to ensure similar mistakes won't be made again.
"I don't feel good about what happened," Beebe said. "I'm saddened by what occurred."
Of course there's no pushback now.
