Notebook: Gophers banged up in backfield

LINCOLN, Neb. -- Donnell Kirkwood knows a thing or two about patience. A bruising power back by trade, he's aware enough to read holes created by Minnesota's stout offensive line before plowing through them, usually delivering a blow or two on his way. But this season, the senior had to exercise a different kind of imperturbability, the kind that comes with getting bumped...

Bo Pelini Says Michigan State Defenders Were Clapping, Screwing Up Nebraska’s Snap Count

Nebraska had some issues snapping the ball during its loss against Michigan State Saturday night. On multiple occasions, quarterback Tommy Armstrong and center Mark Pelini didn’t appear to be on the same page, leading to a few false start penalties.  This wasn’t really the Huskers fault, though, so says Bo Pelini on today’s Big Ten coaches conference call.  Pelini attributed...

Nebraska hoping for another shot at Michigan St.

With a bye this week, Nebraska will have some extra time to ponder what could have been and what could be.
