With the offseason wrapping up, NU coach Mike Riley joined "The Jim Rome Show" to preview the 2017 season.
Before his third season as Nebraska's head coach, Riley talked about a number of changes in the program, including the quarterback transition, the switch to the 3-4 defense and more on Rome's show, part of the CBS Sports radio network.
Riley said new quarterback Tanner Lee is well-respected and doesn't have a lot of drama, after entering the program as a former two-year starter at Tulane and running the scout team last season.
"I thought that he handled [leading the scout team] about as well as he could have," Riley said. "He got himself ready for the offseason and for spring ball. We had a lot of fun with him in spring, so I think he's handled all that really, really well — really helped our team, really became one of the guys. He was elected offseason captain for our offseason workout program. A lot of stuff like that that's pretty impressive."
Riley also talked about the Husker fan base, saying "it’s really an honor to be in a football program where people are around you that care so much."
