Monday Edition

Here are you four Monday topics for you to start the week

Photo: It was Tom Osborne's day in Lincoln. His 500th game. He took the field with coach Bo Pelini and the team.

Tom Shatel's thoughts about the moment:

"Osborne leading the team out of the tunnel wearing a red hat and red coaching jacket. It's 1973 all over again. That may have been the best thing I've ever seen here. Totally cool moment."

Coolest moment of the weekend (bias of course) was Bo Pelini and Tom Osborne leading Nebraska out of the tunnel Saturday. Photo by the Omaha World-Herald
