Wondering about who will kick for Nebraska isn't exactly a familiar feeling. In fact, Nebraska has been nicknamed "Kicker U" by countless fans. After kickers like Alex Henery and Brett Maher, it's odd to be in this position.
During the spring game, Husker fans even heard a very frustrated Bo Pelini on the topic.
"[Mauro Bondi] had a chance to separate himself as the place-kicker and didn't do it," Pelini said, as reported by USA Today.
Pelini was frustrated with Bondi's missed extra point and his failed 18-yard field-goal attempt. Spencer Lindsay wasn't any better, as he had a PAT blocked.
By the time the press conference rolled around, Pelini wasn't holding back.
"The bottom line with the guys we have right now, they are capable but none of them are consistent. So enter Drew Brown, so we’ll find out," Pelini said.
As of now, Brown has the most to prove. It's rare for a coach to call out an incoming player like Pelini did, but there is so much uncertainty around the kickers. Brown provides a fresh start.
Fall practice will hopefully sort the kicking mess out. As of now, it appears like it's Brown's job to lose.
