The Nebraska Cornhuskers have a number of different players that are going to demand a closer look once fall camp starts next week. It should come as no surprise that MJ Sherman is one of those names that is rising to the top of the list.

The linebacker transfer from Georgia is expected to be someone who could contribute to the Nebraska football team right away. He’s someone who has said he feels like he’s in his element in Lincoln.

He also has the skills that make the Lincoln Journal Star believe he might be a big “missing piece” for the Nebraska Cornhuskers linebacker corps this season.

Nebraska Cornhuskers get a chance to be heard

It can be quite hard for a company, website or radio station to find a way to stand out from the competition. Tom Shatel thinks that 93.7 The Ticket has found the secret sauce.

The radio station is giving a ton of former Nebraska Cornhuskers players their own shows. That allows those ex-players to start a career in another profession. It also gives fans a chance to hear about the Huskers’ program right from those who know it the best.

Camp rosters grow

It’s unclear if the Nebraska football team will take advantage of this new rule but the NCAA is allowing teams to have a ton of players at fall camp. It seems like they probably should take advantage if they’re able.

The NCAA has allowed for a one year expansion of fall camp rosters from 110 to 120 players. It will certainly be interesting to see what affect this has on preparations for the season.

Defensive line offers lots of questions

There may not be a unit that has more question marks heading into the Nebraska Cornhuskers fall camp than the defensive line. The Omaha World Herald took a look at who might see the most time there.

Nebraska Cornhuskers not getting a lot of love

There’s a ton of optimism over Matt Rhule’s first season in Lincoln, but at least some analysts believe 2023 won’t go all that well. Pick Six Previews released its projection of where it thinks the Nebraska football team will end up this season. Turns the Nebraska Cornhuskers are projected to end up 5th in the final season of the Big Ten West.
