A building block: I hope the money was worth it for both sides on Saturday. Yes, many Huskers got valuable playing time, and that’s a good thing. But if you’re a Nebraska football coach, I don’t know how you can look at that game and see how your team can build off it. NU did a lot of good things. But, as a fan sitting next to me Saturday said, “This is the spring game we didn’t have.”
Lots of runners: Rex Burkhead got eight carries, and in this game, it seemed more than enough. Rex looked like himself early, and there was no reason to risk injury in this one. The yards will come harder, starting next week. But I like the selection in NU’s backfield. Imani Cross ran well. And Braylon Heard has great instincts, maybe the best of the bunch. There’s a lot to like there.
Where’s the restroom: It’s a college football stadium, and there’s not much you can do in the way of renovations in most areas of the stadium. One thing I noticed, from the peanut gallery way up high, is that you had to walk a long way to find a restroom or a concession stand. And there weren’t a lot of those downstairs, either.
