The BTN crew of Dave Revsine, Gerry Dinardo and Howard Griffith is in the middle of its annual bus trip through Big Ten country, and on Monday, it stopped by Nebraska’s practice.
Here are some of the highlights from the crew’s visit.
The newsy bits from this tweet are 1) Wan’Dale Robinson is back in pads after missing a couple of practices last week and 2) Held told BTN that Ronald Thompkins will redshirt this season.
A redshirt season always seemed like the path Thompkins would take after suffering his second torn ACL in the season opener of his senior season at Grayson, but Thompkins’ addition to the 110-man roster for fall camp, even in a no-contact green jersey, seemed like a sign that they might want to get him on the field this year if he got cleared.
“The outstanding Adrian Martinez” — I guess he’s a magician now or something? But also, no Luke McCaffrey?
Oh, there he is. Also, shout out to Jaevon McQuitty.
I bet those two have had some fun battles throughout camp.
Nebraska passed the all-important “look test,” it appears. Although this is a strange video to illustrate that considering the camera panned away from the action to a lineman falling down and then followed Frost as he was walking away.
Martinez is on the BTN bus, which he has now officially signed.
Of course, no visit to Nebraska is complete without a meal from Valentino’s.
Later in the day Gerry Dinardo offered some of his thoughts on how his opinion of Nebraska has shifted and shared his own sights and sounds video from the day.
On their way out of town, the guys shared their takeaways from practice.
The Nebraska on BTN account also shared a handful of the segments the crew shot for BTN as they interviewed the leaders on the team.
First up was senior linebacker Mohamed Barry.
Next was Martinez with a special cameo by JD Spielman who hasn’t spoken much with the media over the last year.
And finally, the head man himself took a couple of moments to talk with the crew.
BTN also mic’d up a couple of the coaches during practice.
Jacob is in his third year with Hail Varsity covering Husker athletics. He has also written extensively for SB Nation’s Bright Side of the Sun and The Creightonian. His love of basketball can best be described as an obsession and if you need to find him, he’s probably in a gym somewhere watching, coaching or playing hoops.
