Huskers Eye Fighting Illini Posted by Jeremy Anderson Date: November 18, 2020 68 Views Photo Courtesy: NU Communications Nebraska defensive coordinator Erik Chinander told reporters on Tuesday that the Blackshirts have been handed out to members of the defense this week, but did not identify which players those were. Chinander said, “There are guys that have earned the right to play through their practice habits and just what they’ve done when they’ve got their chances in the football game. I really like it right now because it’s creating a very energetic, competitive spirit in practice. Those guys have earned the right to play.” Kicker Connor Culp, talking to the media for the first time this season, says that Lincoln Police located his pickup truck which was stolen on Saturday night from the Cornhusker Hotel where the team was staying prior to their game against Penn State. Culp said the truck had been taken off-road and had a couple of flat tires, but otherwise thanked Husker fans for their help in locating the vehicle and for all their support.
