Nebraska football coach Mike Riley says he is not interested in making personnel changes just to send a message to his struggling football team. The Huskers dropped to 3-5 overall after a 30-28 loss to Northwestern.
Riley says making changes in hopes of motivating a team can often times send the wrong message.
“And when you are talking about the type of games we have been in is that really the right thing to do?”, asked Riley. “You have got to be careful and not issue a scapegoat statement.”
Husker defensive coordinator Mark Banker was asked this week if he would consider pulling Blackshirts off players who are struggling in games.
“We don’t want to play games with it”, said Banker. “Unless somebody is totally derelict in their overall responsibilities than that is not going to happen. If anything we were going to add to our Blackshirts”
The Huskers take a 1-3 Big Ten record on the road to Purdue this weekend.
