Lincoln, NE – For the first time in a long time, Nebraska was supposed to have the perfect blend of talent at the wide receiver position.
With speed demons like Jamal Turner and Kenny Bell, they knew they would be able to go down field. With tight end Kyler Reed, linebackers would be exposed. And with senior Brandon Kinnie returning, Nebraska would have their go to possession receiver. Sure Kinnie could go downfield, but he was more effective in the intermediate passing game.
"Trust me, Brandon Kinnie is not lacking for confidence," said Bo Pelini during his weekly press conference.
So what is it? There has been obviously a problem, whether it was mental or physical. But it's the hope that Kinnie's performance last weekend was possibly a sign of things to come.
"Saturday helped out a lot confidence-wise," said Kinnie. "I'm getting a feel for it."
