LINCOLN — Spencer Long and Cole Pensick were never sure what to think — they honestly don't remember pondering it much at the time — but the change obviously turned out to do them good.
Long, a walk-on from Elkhorn, and Pensick, a scholarship recruit from Lincoln Northeast, spent the 2009 season as scout-team defensive linemen. The Nebraska staff then came to them with the idea of crossing over to the offensive line before the next spring.
