For those who want to know:
1 - Husker LB Steve Octavien had his appendix removed Tuesday. Sounds like it was a routine procedure and isn't expected to miss any games. Octo started the opener last year against Maine and on the 1st play of the 2nd quarter broke his leg and was done for the year.
2 - 3 plus hour scrimmage yesterday. Husker RB's busted off long TD runs not once, but twice. That's on top of a long TD run in a scrimmage Saturday. When I say long, i'm talking longer than 50 yards. If there was any doubt that the Husker coaches weren't serious about having an improved running game, this should end any doubts. An improved running game will only make the passing game that much better and will make for a very lethal Husker offense :)
