Well, it was just a few short days ago that I extorted the incredible healing powers of Nebraska quarterback Kody Spano's knee?

My, my, my how fast things have changed.

Today, Nebraska coach Bo Pelini confirmed after Wednesday's practice that Spano did tear the ACL in his left knee again.

This will seriously affect the Nebraska offense in a multitude of ways.

One of which, and most obvious is that it thins an already inexperienced group of quarterbacks.

And two, it may reign in just how many quarterback running plays, i.e. zone read options, straight options, Shawn Watson may call for likely first year starter Zac Lee to run the offense.

It also puts the red shirt of much heralded 5 star quarterback recruit Cody Green in serious jeopardy.

Keep your head up Kody Spano. 

Do the work to get back and we look forward to seeing you compete in 2010.
