Anthony Grant has a real plan for what he wants this season to be for the Nebraska Cornhuskers and it should be fun watching him carry it out.
After all the walk and preparations for the 2023 season, there was so much to talk about when it came to the Nebraska Cornhuskers that it can be easy to forget every single player that might make an impact. That’s one of the reasons you can be forgiven for forgetting about Anthony Grant.
But the running back, the Nebraska Cornhuskers’ leading rusher from 2022 is ready to take the next step. His plan is to become elite. To be someone that won’t soon be forgotten by Nebraska football fans.
“Sometimes I was stuck in this situation where I probably could have did something better on this play or this drive,” Grant told the Omaha World-Herald. “It wasn’t like I didn’t know what I was doing but really just taking that next step to being a really elite guy … I can really do something big this year. I can really do something special this year.”
If he is able to do that, the Nebraska football team could do something big and something special as well.
Nebraska Cornhuskers volleyball ranked fifth
The Huskers might not have been in the AP Top 25 when the preseason poll was released, but the same very much cannot be said about the volleyball team. John Cook’s squad was ranked in a tie at No. 5 in the preseason AVCA Coaches Poll released on Tuesday.
Along with the ranking, the Nebraska volleyball team has a tougher slate. While Matt Rhule’s team has just a trio of Top 25 teams on its schedule, Cook’s unit has 11 scheduled matches against teams ranked in the preseason Top 25.
Tony White’s plan for Blackshirts
The Blackshirts are always a topic of discussion this time of year. Nebraska Cornhuskers defensive coordinator knows that. Earlier this week, he talked about his plan for how and when to hand them out. His comments should make football fans hopeful.
"The most important thing I can do with that tradition is acknowledged it. I have to talk to people who have instilled, who have lived, who have done it the right way. I’ve heard many different ways they have done it, from bringing old guys back, taking it away, waiting a couple of games, do it fall camp. I’ve heard a lot of different things already.”“I think it’s one of the best traditions in college football.”"
Here’s hoping he gets it right and honors how it’s supposed to be done by the Nebraska Cornhuskers.
