Husker fan and media reaction

It is not the uniform; it is the one wearing the uniform...

They look awesome. And the kids will love them. That's all that matters is the current and future athletes love them as that is the ONLY way we will ever win another championship

The touchdown by the kid jack Hoffman(cancer survived) in the red white game nothing short of amazing it truly shows how special Nebraska football is.

Spring game was a blast. watching little Jack Hoffman score that touchdown was incredible.

How cool was it of the huskers to give young jack Hoffman the game winning TD? I thought it was awesome. Team jack!!!

Alex Henery's 57-yarder, Suh's subsequent pick-6, Montee Ball stuffed on fourth down, Tom Osborne leading the team out of the tunnel one last time... of all the things I've seen at Memorial Stadium, Jack Hoffman scoring a TD will forever be the best moment.

Ok - little Jack Hoffman scoring a touchdown in the NU spring game may just be the cutest thing I've seen in a long time!

Taylor Martinez

I would just like to remind you all that I was a Taylor Martinez fan way before all of you. Jump on! #badwagoners 😊 http://pic.twitter.com/NWdO9sel · Haylee McVicker

His mechanics are vastly improved. Still needs minor tweaking, but overall a big improvement. This will help on long yardage situations or when playing from behind. It also prevents defenses from loading the box. Now Special Teams and tackling are another story.

T-Mart for Heisman

even more impress by him speading out the ball to multiple targets. Makes the defenses job harder if every receiver is in the game.

The best he has ever looked in the passing game!

He looks awesome, much improved. The entire offense looks great! Fantastic running, solid catching and ball handling very good. Hoping for consistency of this offense all season ;-)

Nebraska's offense

National Champions here we come. GO BIG RED

Get well soon, Rex! And Huskers, win this game for Rex and the other Nebraska Greats!!! GO BIG RED!!!!!!!!!!

<![CDATA[Advice to Journalism students]]>

I am speaking to a Creighton University news reporting class and wanted to test out Storify while gathering advice for the students across social media. Here are the results.

Storified by Brian Norton · Thu, Oct 27 2011 09:33:10

A call for advice
Master the basics but learn new tools too
From Robert Quigley of the Austin American Statesman:

Students should get the basics down (writing for breaking news, AP style, ethics, etc) but they should also become proficient in using all the new tools. They should know how to shoot and edit a good video, use Facebook to gather sourcing material, use Twitter to interact with the public, know how to use location-based services, etc. They should also learn how to use Flash, databases, know some html. A jack-of-all-trades has a leg up right now in a really tough market.

Don't be afraid to take try new things
Lauren McCullough of the Associated Press:

Be a user! Play with new tools and experiment with new platforms. Hiring managers will expect you to be authoritative about new technology. Take advantage of the opportunity to share creative insights.
Kim Bui:

Just spoke to students and I told them now is the
time to try new tools, like Lauren said, but also get used to said new
tools not always working right. Get used to the feeling of failing, bc
social media eds require a thick skin.
Jon Xavier:

The traditional skills are important, but you can learn them anywhere, and you won't really start to learn until you get
your first job, anyway. Social media, on the other hand, is still in nascent stages at a lot of places..., so it's a lot better to start with it when you're in school and can  afford to make mistakes. Above all, I think, remind people to be  fearless. Being on the cutting edge of digital journalism means  constantly re-evaluating what you're doing and trying new approaches,  and that involves considerable fear of the unknown for some people. If you want to be successful, you have to push through that.
Engage with the community
Dan Day, editor at Modesto Bee:

Tweet early, tweet often, i.e. do enough volume to establish a regular presence in the areas to which you engage.
Nicholas Wirtz

Remain flexible, get out there and converse with the public, not... just broadcast at them and learn at least one tech skill in addition to html/css.
