    Thumbs up Team Captains Named

    @Matt_Davison
    For 1st time in the Bo Pelini Era at NU the Huskers have team captains for the season. Congrats to Martinez, S Long, Enunwa, and C Evans.

    All very good choices....
    Notre Dame only had one Rudy but Nebraska gets a new crop of Rudys every season

    I believe this is a good idea. Continuity and leadership are necessary in captains.
    God grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway,
    the good fortune to run into the ones I do…
    and the eyesight to tell the difference.

    Great news indeed! I think the Huskers have needed this for a while.

    It doesn’t matter if the glass is half full or half empty. What matters is you have a glass that has something in it. Some people have no glass, or have a glass with nothing in it. So appreciate all that is in your life and quit questioning whether your glass in half full or half empty.

    I never understood why Bo thought "revolving" captains was a good idea.
    I really hate Penn State! (And I'm not that wild about Iowa either.)

    There's still room for a "wild card" that could be appointed on a weekly basis, but this continuity in expected leadership through the summer and into fall should pay dividends.

    Once again, Pelini demonstrates a willingness/ability to adjust and change philosophies in the search for better performance. Kudos, coach.

    I'm glad Pelini reads this board and finally decided to listen to all of us. I think this should pay some dividends moving forward. Now, how about blackshirts for the starting D?

    Great news. All four are deserving and have put in the hours.

    Looking forward to what Martinez can do this year. I believe he's probably got a massive chip on his shoulder about winning a championship and/or BCS bowl.

    I think the fans should get to choose the team captains before every game with a thumbs up or down vote. This move is ridiculous.

    I wouldn't mind seeing another Defensive Captain along with Evans.
