A few Spring Game Notes

From the sounds of things, Matt Herian is cleared to take the field for the first time in 18 months for tomorrow's Spring Game. For some reason, I think the first play just might be a deep pass to Herian, who deserves a huge ovation. Let's hope he's back to his pre-injury form in the fall...

Harrison Beck is also cleared to play despite his sore shoulder. Beck was struggling in camp before being injured, so I won't be surprised (or disappointed) if he doesn't play well.

The Kansas City media apparantly just heard about Bill Callahan's quip about Josh Freeman last month. It's sad when the 18 year old recruit shows more maturity than Nebraska's head coach. Freeman's response? "Life goes on. I play for K-State now."

Speaking of immature responses, apparantly Husker Information Minister Jim Rose is all in a tizzy over the Omaha Press Club's selection of Todd & Tyler as the next "Faces on the Barroom Floor". Apparantly Rose is leading a campaign advocating the cancelling of memberships over this. The Press Club provides a public service to the community, sponsoring debates this year for the US Senate and Nebraska governor races in the past month. But apparantly that's not as important as protesting a roast of a couple of morning show DJ's... During the uproar over Nebraska's coaching change, Rose continually belabored the point that the protests were hurting the program. Rose's protest of the Press Club over something as silly as a roast of Todd & Tyler hurts the community.
