Almost for an entire season last year Pierre Allen knew one manner of pain or the other. His knee, his other knee, turf toe, tendinitis, etc. He's healthy, knock on wood, and excited about the future. It's one where we might not have seen the real Pierre Allen yet. This could be the year where we do.

From spelling the man to being the man, Pierre Allen went from hopeful starter to the person who had to be the guy. Replacing Barry Turner last season, Allen went onto have a stellar year. This season he's obviously looking for more. Enjoy this video as he talks about this year, his role and just how good he thinks this defensive line can be.

Following a day off, the Huskers returned to practices as they hit the first week of what will be a two-week timeframe to prepare for the visiting Virginia Tech Hokies. Head Coach Bo Pelini said after practice today that there are a lot of upsides to a bye-week, but one of the byproducts of that today was the fact that he was short a few members of his staff for practice.

Call him the big man on campus. No, Pierre hasn't achieved some previously unattained position of popularity amongst fellow students. Well, he might have, but he's big, because he's just plain big. He came in just a year ago weighing 225 pounds. Now he is almost 270. That means a change in position and Allen is already getting set to fight to be number one.
