Diaco Explains Not Meeting With Media Saturday Night

Nebraska defensive coordinator Bob Diaco said he has “never run away from anything” in his life. Responding after yesterday’s practice to reports that he did not talk to the media following the Huskers’ 43-36 win over Arkansas State Saturday night, Diaco called it a “product of miscommunication” because he was told he did not have to address the media after games.

Diaco also echoed a theme yesterday of head coach Mike Riley – that the Blackshirts executed the game plan despite giving up nearly 500 yards of offense.

The Huskers will visit Oregon this Saturday.  Kickoff is at 3:30 p.m. The pre-game starts at 10:30 a.m. on News Talk 900 KJSK and will be joined at 3 on KLIR 101.

Hooch, Hits and Huskerin’ – a free tailgate party at Village Center Mall – starts at 2 o’clock.
