Notes from the Press Conference: September 5, 2011
- The press conference was to begin at 10:30, but did not get underway until nearly 11:15. Volleyball head coach Jon Cook spoke for just about five minutes. He shared that the Nebraska volleyball team is at 150 consecutive sellouts, which is the longest NCAA streak of any women’s sport.
- Cameron Meredith talked about the defense’s identity and what he learned from former DT Ndamukong Suh: “Every play in practice, he’s go 100%.”
- Bo Pelini was quick to say that he would not call Saturday’s game "sloppy".
- Pelini mentioned that Will Compton is doing well, but is day-to-day. Notes that no structural damage was done to the foot that caused Compton to leave the game in the 1st quarter on Saturday.
- On Fresno State, Pelini said: “History shows they give a lot of people problems.”
- The Huskers mantra for the week? According to Pelini, “Get better each day. Focus on the process, make ourselves better. That’s all we can control.”
- Brett Maher was met with a lot of questions about Alex Henery. While praising Henery’s stellar career, Maher made it clear, “I’m trying to be my own person and make my own footprints here.” He made sure to note that he was grateful to get the time to learn from Henery and Adi Kunalic.
- In an interesting interview, WR Quincy Enunwa downplayed his connection with QB Taylor Martinez. Said he believed Martinez just saw him a few times and it worked out, didn’t believe there was any special connection.
- Taylor Martinez appeared the most confident he has been in front of the media. He said that he, “feels the best he has since the Missouri game.”
