All-Conference Honorees Only Bolster Pelini's 08 Performance

Big Red NetworkSenior Writer IDecember 3, 2008

For the second consecutive year, and third out of the past four, Nebraska didn't place a single player on the All-Big 12 1st team. Ndamukong Suh late season heroics had merited some first-team talk but he, along with Matt Slauson, was named as a second-team selection.

Overall, Nebraska had seven players garner all-conference honorable mentions for a total of nine players on the annual end of the season conference awards list as voted by the coaches. If you need another reason to be optimistic about Bo Pelini's future outside of the probable New Year's Day bowl game and 8-4 record consider this: That represents Nebraska's lowest total number of all-conference honorees since 2004, Bill Callahan's first year at Nebraska.
