Darrin Smith, 3-star running back from Frisco, Texas, was planning to make a commitment sooner rather than later. Did a Nebraska offer change that? A little bit, especially as Smith plans a future visit to see Nebraska in person.
What can Nebraska expect from Frost’s practices? From the sounds of it, Frost is pulling inspiration from Tom Osborne and Chip Kelly.
Change of heart
The New York Jets’ offer to Ndamukong Suh came as a bit of a surprise. Even more surprising? The fact that the Jets have already rescinded the offer.
Combining science and art
Nebraska head strength coach Zach Duval believes in combining science and “the art of sport.” The approach helps his staff understand where the body work needs to go.
A Sunday snap
The Nebraska baseball team was unable to get a Sunday win, snapping a 16-game span where the Huskers went 15-0-1 on Sundays. The Huskers fell to Minnesota on Sunday afternoon.
