LINCOLN — Nebraska coach Bo Pelini has a policy that his football players can't talk to the media until after they've played a game. That would explain junior defensive tackle Tobi Okuyemi's hesitation last week when his name — perhaps for the first time — appeared on an interview request list.
Is it OK to talk, he asked one of NU's team spokesmen. Since Okuyemi saw the field — for a play — last year, technically, he could. But he wanted to make sure.
