Nebraska Cornhuskers coach Bo Pelini has had one of those relationships with quarterback Taylor Martinez. There have been highs; there have been lows. As year No. 3 of the Martinez administration begins this week, pretty much every other player on the roster will also get the chance to take snaps.
Nebraska's spring game is set for April 14, when every team in the world is also holding some sort of scrimmage.
Issue No. 1 for the Huskers offense: that line, which loses three starters in Mike Caputo, Jermarcus Hardrick, and Marcel Jones. Jeremiah Sirles and Tyler Moore are expected to man the tackle spots, while it's a four-man free-for-all for the center job.
On defense, Nebraska is all set despite losing linebacker Lavonte David and cornerback Alfonzo Dennard, so long as we're just talking about Skelly drills. Somewhere between three and five defensive linemen will miss parts of spring practice, including potential starters Josh Williams and Chase Rome. That's all after Jared Crick's departure, so, yeah, someone should probably tell Mr. Burkhead not to trample whoever's left over.
