Look for this guy to be possibly one of the best DEs in the Nation next year.

At 6'6'' 295 lbs, Carriker runs a 4.68 40 :O

Last year he led the Huskers in sacks (9.5) who also led the Nation for most sacks for a team.

I remember last year at the spring game I told my friends that Carriker was going to have a break out year. He was hungry after the last two years with injuries. Now he seems even hungrier: added fifteen pounds of muscle and dropped his 40 time to 4.68 :eek:

With Carriker returning, Moore at the other end and Dugunduro and Cryer in the middle(I think they are better than Smith and Adams) our front line is going to be sick.

Plus with the linebacking core that we have I am salivating at what our defence can do this year.

I know. Mark my words, we will have a top 5 D next year. Look for us to be leaders in sacks, too.

I can just see him coming around the corner with a small running back trying to block him. He hammers the RB into the QB and they both fall down :O .
P.S. How about Cody Glenn so far? Baby Earl is right on!!

Sweet another Husker fan? I will be excited for Cody next year. If he had the athletic ability of Lucky, or if Lucky grew a brain, we would be a force at the run, again.

I bet lucky is sitting in his dorm room right now mad as hell because he's not getting the attention and Cody is.That will make a kid come around in a hurry. Yes, I'm DIE-HARD husker fan.

Ahh ahh, no more Red.... LOL, I'm still haunted because I was at the recent CU/NU game sitting in the Red section, ahh too much!!

haha just playing, that's a good crowd, really geniune people..I literally sat in the middle of the NU section with Red next to me, in front of me, and behind me and didn't get hassled or harassed once, actually got into a good conversation with one of those Corn and had a good laugh about the student section with another..

All I ask is that we keep this RED to a minimum, okay? haha

Well a DE that is going to get a lot of attention this year is OU's Larry Birdine. This guy is a monster. Had a freak torn biceps injury that shelled him for the season last year (1 week before the season!) His sophomore season he had 11 tackles for loss and 7 sacks, and he didnt even start! He was behind Dan Cody and Jonathan Jackson (who both play in the NFL now). Im sure this kid will be a first team all big 12 and concidered for all-america honors. I wish we played nebraska again in the regular season, but it looks like we will have to wait until the big 12 title game.

Well it looks like due to Glenn's injury Lucky got the chance to prove himself worthy of starting. And sure enough he is. He improved on blocking and catching out of the backfield.

This RB battle is turning out to be a good one. I can not wait for the spring game to watch it live.

Considering they went 7-5 last year, with a huge upside at the end, I'd say they'll go somewhere.

You see, here at Broncomania, we're not *******s about the college team someone likes. Hell, some of the coolest (and classiest) people here are Buff fans.

And really? Corn Puckers? Here is the definition for ''pucker'' straight from dictionary.com--- puck·er Pronunciation Key (pkr)
v. puck·ered, puck·er·ing, puck·ers
v. tr.

To gather into small wrinkles or folds: puckered my lips; puckered the curtains.

Guess I don't quite know where you're goin' with that one... :confused:

He is probably just mad because UNL destroys his team every year. (except maybe the last couple unless he is a colorado fan)

I just looked it up with the new additions this year it says it can hold over 80,000.

WOW...thats thing thing....I can't stand Husker football, just sickens me, but I can respect stuff like that, great fan base whether they're 13-0 or 7-5, those fans will always be there...

I think Huskers are a good team, but I don't think they will go out and be dominate as they once were next season...This year belongs to OU, pretty safe bet considering AD is healthy, their passing game improved, and D is always solid...

I feel the same way about CU, but to hear that give me alittle more respect for your program. I hope Hawkins cleans CU up.

I still miss guys like Stewart and Hagan running around in the pocket. If was fun to watch the blackshirts go after those guys. Sometimes they sacked them, other times they didn't.Won't see guys like that under center for the Buffs anymore. Hagan still coaching at CU??? I think he is, but not for sure.

Yeah you should drive around our streets during the college season. Everything is white and red. Flags everywhere people painting their cars and putting banners/liscense plates. Since we dont have pro sports people go a little overboard with the Huskers. But its all fun because they are a great team.

Huskers have to play both USC and Texas this season. Luckily USC just lost a ton of guys and Vince is out of Texas now. This will also be our 3rd season with the new coach and changed from a strictly run team to a passing team so I feel this year or next year will be the break out year. They have all the recruits that our new coach has brought in comming up now to be starters rather than having all the running team recruits trying to play our new west coast offense.

Norman is that way too because we have no pro teams. I think that the Nebraska fans might be a little more faithful because I remember during our John Blake debacle I was able to get tickets at my high school for $5. I also remember being able to walk down and get a better seat because they were empty. They would still bring in around 70,000 but nothing like it is right now. I am number 12,660 on the season ticket waiting list. My wait is expected to be 7 years they said. I have only been to one OU/NU game, the 2000 one. Nebraska fans alway get down to Norman by thursday and stay til sunday. They are some of the classiest fans ever.

i was at that game as well.........at the bottom of the horseshoe (southside? :confused: ) but yeah, that game was not a good one, but whenever i think about that game, i start to immediatly think about a few years ago, 62-36 and how huge of a game Chris Brown had, still have that recorded :cheers:

I might have to get a copy of that...lol..

yeah and you were sitting probably where the endzone says COLORADO.. you were lucky you didn't have to deal with all the Red...

But this is starting to get to become a real good rivalry..I think Colorado has to win more games against NU and both teams have to be in the top 25 consistantly for this to become a classic rival...right now it's just teams beating each other up, normal Big 12 rival, kinda like a CSU/CU thing...

You people wait and see what happens this year. OU's D is going to be freak of nature like. Bomar wont even have to be a star, just manage a game and hand the ball off to Peterson, Patrick and newcomer Murray. Our receiving core is going to be excellent as well. The sooners will go undefeated if they can beat texas and beat A&M at Kyle field. About our only challenges this year. Other than that we should coast right along.

Ohh you'll beat Texass this year... last year was their year, especially with Young, now no more Young and no more Huff, AD is going to run all over them...

Thompson has played well as a WR during the spring and don't forget about Iglesias, he's been your best WR yet...

As for going undefeated, don't be sold on that yet, you still have to play the Golden Buffaloes!...LOL..

LOL, maybe in a few years I will be worried about the buffs, but I dont think this year. I think our best receiver is Malcom Kelly. He made some sick sick catches last year and should only improve this year. Iglesias started slow last year but had an outstanding spring.
