The Nebraska Cornhuskers have officially begun the hunt for Ted Carter’s replacement has begun with a Board of Regents meeting.
The interesting thing about that meeting is that at first, the purpose of the meeting was a secret. According to WOWT, the meeting started out as these meetings always do, with an open to the public segment on Zoom. However, it took no time at all before the meeting was closed.
According to sources inside the university, the Board of Regents closed the meeting to “prevent needlessly injuring the reputation of whoever had requested it.”
While it’s not clear what exactly that meant, the university did eventually release info that the meeting was find a new university president for the Nebraska Cornhuskers following the sudden departure of Ted Carter.
The BoR sent out a notice that it is putting together a Presidential Search Advisory Committee. It’s even taking applications from the public at large to man the committee. Those applications and nominations must be in by September 6.
It would seem at the very least that Ted Carter’s replacement isn’t going to be in place quickly. The process is going to take a while.
Considering the power the university president has, now even over the Nebraska Cornhuskers athletic department, being cautious and deliberate is a good thing.
Where Nebraska Cornhuskers football coaches will be during the game
On Friday, Matt Rhule discussed many preparations the Nebraska football team is doing ahead of Minnesota. That includes where his staff will be and who will be on the field and who will be in the booth.
It turns out that both defensive coordinator Tony White and offensive coordinator Marcus Satterfield are going to be on the field. So will special teams coordinator Ed Foley.
Wide receivers coach Garrett McGuire and assistant o-line coach Aaron Coeling will be up in the booth. Coeling will relay info to offensive line coach Donovan Raiola on the ground. linebackers coach Rob Dvoracek will be in the booth, and it’s not clear where defensive backs coach Corey Cooper will be.
Nebraska Cornhuskers sweep again
John Cook and company are 2-0 after another sweep on Saturday night. This time around, the Huskers beat Lipscomb, but there was some drama involved in the 25-10, 25-21, 25-16 victory.
That second set was especially impressive considering the Huskers trailed 19-13 at one point before going on a 12-2 run.
They’ll face off against SMU on Sunday afternoon.
Former Huskers have big Saturday
Two ex-Nebraska Cornhuskers stars had some nice games on Saturday for their respective NFL teams.
Defensive back Dicaprio Bootle recorded two tackles, but it was his interception in the middle of an interview with quarterback Patrick Mahomes that grabbed everyone’s attention. Including the future Hall of Famer’s.
Meanwhile, Trey Palmer continued his insane preseason with another incredible catch. On the game, he had two catches for 25 yards. For the preseason, he has 7 catches for 91 yards and 2 TDs. It’s not a matter of whether he’ll make the team, it’s a matter of whether he might be a starter.
That would be a heck of a win for the former record-setting Nebraska Cornhuskers star.
