Gut check time. Quickly, because I had to find a sports bar at the last minute and it's a long ways away, keep an eye out for the following:
Jordy Nelson may play defensive back. No, I haven't gone insane, but I wonder if Ron Prince has. Playing both ways is for high school football, and Nelson is too valuable on offense to let him get worn out chasing Maurice Purify around.
Rashaad Norwood has made the trip, and may play. I guess we'll see if he's ready for game action.
Husker running backs coach Randy Jordan comes about as close as you'll ever see a coach get to complaining about the other team's hitting. I challenge Coach Jordan to show me a true cheap shot by a K-State defender this year. There have been some late hits, but those have mostly subsided (knock on wood) and most of what I've seen has been mediocre, hard-hitting defense.
