The Lincoln Journal-Star reports that Cody Glenn returned to practice, but is still rather gimpy. Can he play against Texas Tech? That's still up in the air.
Certainly, Nebraska will need all the speed they can come up with against the Red Raiders. I still have nightmares of that game four years ago. I spent most of the third quarter swearing at Kevin Cosgrove for rushing three and dropping eight guys deep, leaving plenty of cushion underneath for Sonny Cumbie's receivers. Fourth quarter, I spent swearing at Bill Callahan for throwing true freshman Beau Davis to the wolves, as he threw 8 passes: 1 was caught by a Husker, 4 were caught by the Raiders. That might be the worst stat line ever seen.
While Chase Daniel's comments about the Huskers playing dirty hurt the Huskers image on Monday nationally, the more people talk about it, the more it makes Daniel look bad. Steve Sipple says that the issue was "unbecoming a a veteran player of his exalted stature." Bleacher Report notes that "Daniel hasn't done spit." Double Extra Point called him a "female kitty". And CornNation is full of comments from the blogosphere.
Meanwhile, Sarpy County isn't going to let little things like estimates that come in too high and the realization that they can't afford to build it thwart their dream of building a stadium in Chalco for the Omaha Royals. This story seems to have so many twists and turns, it's hard to know where this is going. If Sarpy County is bound and determined to build a stadium, one very well might happen. The only question is: how far is Sarpy County will to stick their neck out on this issue? Will they gamble and build the stadium and hope things work out? Will they build an econobox and hope it works out? Or will MECA come to their senses and start negotiating with the Royals again?
No matter what happens, nothing really happens until Election Day. That's when Sweetwater, Texas votes on their stadium proposal. If it passes, Sweetwater takes the lead in the pursuit of the Royals. If it fails, then the Royals have to pray that Sarpy County comes through for them, else they have to agree to MECA's offer.
