Obviously, the focal point in the backfield is Marion Barber who rushed for 885 yds and 7 TD’s while chipping in with 52 receptions for 417 yds and an additional 2 scores. Barber’s running style which has rightfully earned him the nickname “Marion the Barbarian” makes him prone to injuries and he wears down as the season goes on.

“While I feel like I’m pretty good at it, it’s still a lot of recognition that goes into it,” Kamara said. “It’s a lot more complex, and guys are a lot better at hiding what they’re doing.

Meanwhile, those skeptical of Riley and athletic director Shawn Eichorst tell you the current culture in the program lacks accountability.

The standout safety says he came up three credits short of being eligible to participate, a remarkable development considering Nebraska’s tradition of academic excellence.
