As we celebrate this season, let us continue to look to Christ for the things that we have around us.  Give glory to Christ for His grace and mercy given to us freely, let there be peace for all in the midst of everything that might come our way and let goodwill be given to all men!

Here is a little holiday greeting card called Glory to God. Enjoy!

Hold the hype

I am totally fine with Taylor  Martinez being the starting QB over Zac Lee and Cody Green.  He is just a redshirt freshman, but he can definitely move.  I just want everyone out there that has already crowned T-Magic as the one who will bring us to the national championship, to hold your horses for a little bit.  Don’t jump just yet, because we all know what happened to Green when we hailed him as the next champion.  He (being Martinez) is a good player, all of them are, we just need to wait and see what will actually happen in the games that matter. 

This is taken from Husker Extra:

Enjoy the show. Just don’t go anointing anyone the next Tommie Frazier when it’s over. This Western Kentucky defense ranked 118th nationally last year and three times gave up more than 62 points. Big plays should happen. So take pleasure in collecting the side bet from your buddy if you predicted the correct starter. But don’t consider this quarterback race over. It’s likely still got miles to go.

We can still cheer T-Magic on to greatness and the other QB’s as well, but there is a whole team and a long season ahead.  Sooner than later, we’ll see what Taylor is made of.  Lets go have some fun this year!

Today it starts

I am excited for the football season, even though I am 2000 miles or so away from good ole Big Red land.  Here are some questions that Dale Obrien has for the season and I am totally with him on all of them:

Well…the sencond editon of the Pelini Brothers Construction takes the field today. There are a few questions that may be answered.

Will this team start by showing the consistency that Bo yearns for and has been ‘yellin’ about since he came to Lincoln?

It’s still a very young team…with a new QB and a (relatively)new LB corps. Will they produce from the opening Kick Off?

Will the DBs show a renewed interest in tackling and knocking the stuffing our of RBs and WRs?

Will Bo show sportsmanship to the officials?

Will the DL show right-off-the-bat that they are going to be the highlight of the defense?

Will Suh’s linemates take advantage of the double-teaming Suh will receive all year?

Will Helu’s hamstring hold up today…and next week…etc?

Will Rex Burkhead (or Burkhart or whatever his name is) prove to be a RB prodigy that we think he will be?

Will Marvin Sanders’ DBs and Safeties become a ball-hawking group or will Suh lead the team in interceptions?

I’m just glad the season is here and am looking forward to some answers.

Here are a few questions asked by Samuel Mckewon of NE Statepaper.com:

Does the load fall, ultimately, to quarterback Zac Lee’s shoulders? Well, that’s the M.O. of the Big 12. But not Pelini, who wants an decent, low-turnover offense in service of an overwhelming defense. The most plays Lee will make in 2009 are the turnovers he avoids, not the touchdowns he creates. If the Huskers try again to engage in scoring contests, they won’t win the North.

For me, rather, it’s that entire defensive unit, the one Pelini drills so hard in practice. Can Will Compton, Sean Fisher and Mathew May play two years above their age level? Can the cornerbacks grab some interceptions? Can the front four continue to stop the run as it did during the last four games of 2008? Can the safeties, the keystone to the Pelini defense in many ways, live up to their head coach’s high standards?

Finally, after eight months of waiting, we can begin to answer the questions.

Defending a new one

I am excited for this football season to come, even though I am still in South Africa and probably won’t be able to see any of the games, save the last one.  It sounds like our defense is starting to get better and hopefully will have a good showing for this year. Lets just hope that the brothers keep coaching together and not knock heads too much.
