    I wonder how he looks good, I don't believe they have even put pads on yet have they? I really hope we don't play him for 10 plays in the 2nd game of the season then not see him the rest of the year. I'd almost rather him look terrible right now.

    A lot of it is him just showing athleticism right now, and a good arm. They are piecing together the playbook and not throwing everything at the players right away. If he can handle all of that he will be in contention. But right now his football/quarterback skills are validating their recruitment of him.

    Signs of optimism for the Corn Nation. However, backup QBs often seem to get unwarranted love at the start of the season. Let's hope we don't need him right away.

    Full disclosure: I grew up in an era of Husker football when it was blasphemous for a coach to say he was "spooked" out of calling a run play. Of course, that was when hard-nosed running defined the program.

    It's difficult to establish a strong run game without firm resolve. Daily resolve. In too many instances — such as when Nebraska calls for passes on third-and-3 in four-down territory — a lack of commitment is evident.

    I wouldn't count Carnes out. Sometimes with these guys the light can suddenly come on, and in a short time they make great strides.

    Hopefully, Armstrong pushes Martinez (and Carnes) to get better - fast.

    This is key to our success on offense. We have to have competition that promotes improvement.

    I couldn't agree more Tommy Armstrong is going to be special and I'm hoping he pushes for playing time next season...
