10.20.2009 / It is Regroup Week for the Cornhuskers and Iowa State Comes to Town, Posting By Greg Sharpe, Voice of the Huskers

It is regroup week for the Nebraska Cornhuskers. Fans do not want to hear that, coaches do not like to have a week like this, but the truth is all programs have a week like this every year.

"The coaches will take most of this week breaking down that position and deciding whether Lee or freshman Cody Green should start on Saturday."

Nebraska has some issues on the offense. Injuries and dismissals have taken their toll on the running back position and NU is going through growing pains at both quarterback and wide receiver. Most fans are screaming for a change at quarterback. I can understand that but keep in mind it isn’t all Zac Lee’s fault that the offense has struggled in the last two games. The coaches will take most of this week breaking down that position and deciding whether Lee or freshman Cody Green should start on Saturday. I’m not sure how this plays out.

This week it’s Iowa State. The Cyclones are currently 4-3 and they have had a couple of heartbreaking losses to K-State and KU. ISU is only a couple of plays away from being 6-1 and 3-0 in Big 12 action.

Austen Arnaud is the signal caller for ISU. The junior from Ames has had an up and down career for the Cyclones but he brings a wealth of experience and some talented weapons to use including running back Alexander Robinson and wide receiver Marquis Hamilton. The Cyclones defense is improving but this should be a group that the Huskers can start to build up some confidence.

Football is such an amazing sport because the perception of your team can change from week to week. Bo Pelini said it best, that while most people felt like the team had turned the corner after the Missouri win, he says there are things that still needed work. That work is underway.

Go Big Red!!!
