LINCOLN — Nebraska's defensive linemen stay later these days after practice than they once did. They stand in a huddle listening to position coach Rick Kaczenski break down the workout, or they run a few sprints, or they head over to blocking dummies to work on swim and rip moves.
Sophomore tackle Maliek Collins is one of the last guys to haul his pads out of the Hawks Championship Center. Quiet by nature, Collins is more comfortable in one-on-one interviews than when the TV cameras come flocking, as they did Wednesday afternoon. Collins may have to get used to them, considering his head coach, Bo Pelini, dropped a lofty comparison: former LSU defensive tackle Glenn Dorsey, who won the Outland and Lombardi trophies in 2007.
