This is the time of year that is especially frustrating for anyone who follows college football.
Spring ball wrapped up weeks ago, the long dog days of summer have just begun and to make it worse, the college football annuals are finding their way to newsstands everywhere.
Over 90 days before kickoff and many are left salivating in anticipation of the 2011 season.
With the Nebraska Cornhuskers making the switch to the Big 10, anticipation in Cornhusker land is likely at an all time high. New opponents, new road venues, new fan bases and traditions to get to know.
With that, lets look into the Professor's crystal ball and find out who the breakout stars will be for the Cornhuskers in 2011.
Every team has those players that breakout every year. You know.. the guys that suddenly and often out of nowhere burst onto the scene and leave their mark in a big way.

Here they are.. Five breakout players for the Cornhuskers in 2011.
