Nebraska coach Mike Riley, as the 4-7 Cornhuskers prepare for Black Friday against Iowa: "I really don't see any need to be angry" at anyone about the struggles of this season. The coach's tenure in Lincoln appears headed to an end this week, but Riley has remained upbeat at every turn. He's focused this week, he said, on his players.

"Usually when you get a statue you are in the dirt, so this will be very different," Butkus said in a statement. "I appreciate the tribute, but it is very humbling."
