The Bill Callahan hangover is over and they're ready for the Bo Pelini era to start at Nebraska, where 80,149 packed Memorial Stadium last Saturday for the spring game. At $10 a ticket, the Cornhuskers cashed in. So did some scalpers, who were asking up to $150 for a ticket on StubHub.
The momentum is carrying over to the fall. A check of StubHub at the time of this post showed two tickets for the Sept. 27 game against Virginia Tech Before kickoff, members of the Husker Nation packed the Coliseum to listen to athletic director Tom Osborne, Pelini and baseball coach Mike Anderson deliver a sermon.

tackle Lydon Murtha gets inside on a defender. The offensive line is expected to be one of the strengths of the Cornhuskers.
Pelini is likely looking forward to the Nov. 15 game at Kansas State. Pelini was Nebraska's defensive coordinator in 2003 when the Cornhuskers suffered an embarrassing 38-9 loss to the Wildcats in Lincoln. Afterward, Pelini accused Bill Snyder of running up the score.
