The winner...

Friday Flakes: Quarterback Battle Heating Up for Nebraska Football

Photo by Steven Branscombe/Getty Images This spring it is Heinrich Haarberg vs. Dylan Raiola vs. Daniel Kaelin for the starting quarterback position for the upcoming Nebraska football season. It is interesting that Matt Rhule has decided that this spring football season the football team will be split up into three separate “teams” which is equal to the number of scholarship quarterbacks on the roster. It is a great idea because it goes with the thought process that the more competitive reps the better when it...
