From safety to running back, back to safety. From safety to linebacker, back to safety. It would seem that safety is where junior Major Culbert belongs. He wouldn't argue that point either. It's a position he's wanted to play, but it's even better nowadays, because the system is different and each member of the secondary feels like it's time to play. The handcuffs have finally been taken off.

I guess you could say that when you are recruited to play a position, that's probably where your heart is. For Major Culbert, his biggest struggle might have been figuring out just what position he'd eventually play. But the freshman now finds himself back on defense, and it's all good to him. But really, at this point, he's just happy to get on the field.

For a safety, Major Culbert isn't a bad running back. Of course, the 2,000-plus yards he ran for as a senior in high school showed just how good of a runner he was. But that wasn't his one true love when it come to position. With a jaunt into the end zone on Saturday, though, one has to wonder if that was enough to sway his mind toward the other side of the ball. Just where does he want to play?

There were plenty of schools recruiting sophomore Major Culbert as a running back. Hard to blame them as he ran for over 2,000 yards as a senior. But he came to Nebraska as a safety. With the recent move to running back, Culbert now looks at potentially playing what he did mostly at the prep level. Is that a good thing? Would he rather be on defense?

Any freshman thinks they can play right away. For some that is actually true. For Major Culbert, he has had the experience of playing, some at his permanent position of safety, but most of it on special teams. it's the adjustment that's the challenge, but one he's been the equal to his first year. But as any athlete competing for time, he just wants to play.

When Major Culbert arrived he felt thankful that he had this chance to show what he could do and play football and get an education for free. Considering some of the bumps in the road for him, he's appreciative of every opportunity he has. This season is just another, one he plans on taking advantage of, but is grateful he has at all.
