Among the things that Nebraska Cornhuskers fans learned about head coach Matt Rhule this week is what kind of television he doesn’t really like.
Nebraska football head coach Matt Rhule was quite unhappy about his team’s performance last weekend. What he thinks about his players and how they need to step up is just one of the things we learned this week.
We also learned why Rhule is not exactly a fan of Friday night games. While you might have thought it was because it forces a short week onto the players. While it might have been because it just screws up the schedule a bit, that doesn’t appear to be the issue.
The reason that Rhule hates Friday night games? The television shows suck.
“I don’t really love night games very much because you’re sitting around. Especially on Fridays. At least on Saturdays you can watch other teams play. On Fridays, you’re watching ‘As the World Turns.'”
Phalen Sanford’s role with the Nebraska Cornhuskers could grow
Phalen Sanford has been one of the Huskers’ most dependable special teams contributors over the last few years. Now it looks like he’s going to be getting on the field more on defense.
The Omaha World-Herald‘s Wilson Moore wrote about how the Nebraska football team is going to be looking to lean on the leader in the next few weeks.
Freshman hits the portal
Running back Isaiah Harris has been with the Nebraska Cornhuskers since 2020. In that time, he hasn’t seen the field, not even once. And finally, it appears he’s ready to see if he can get some playing time somewhere else.
Harris announced on Wednesday night that he’ll be entering the transfer portal. Interestingly enough, Harris announced his departure just one day after teammate Javier Morton did the same.
It’s interesting timing for the Nebraska Cornhuskers players, and it makes it seem like these two, won’t be the last.
