Powerful message from Mike Riley

The new video by Nebraska is chilling. If there wasn't enough excitement for the spring to get here already the crew in the Nebraska video room are adding fuel to the already raging fire.

If you haven't seen the new Nebraska video with the words spoken by head coach Mike Riley then you have missed out. Never fear because the embedded code is here!

There is a feeling of optimism coming into the spring about the new staff. The optimism simply exists for some based on the coaching change. For others though it's a little more complex.

Others love the transparency of the new staff. They liked how through the months of December and January everyone essentially knew which member of the staff was visiting which recruit.

There is an element of energy that others are fond of. People liked not just how Coach Riley and his staff finished out the class of 2015, but how they did it by beating Michigan for their players two out of three times and how they have laid the groundwork with future classes.

The announcement of the head coach as well as the signing day press conferences assure fans that there will be some real insight when the coaches speak. Coach Riley seems honest and doesn't want to avoid questions.

But most of all, when you add all of this up there is a complete genuine feel about the new staff and how they want to win at Nebraska and do it in the right way.
