LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) Mike Riley's been coaching for 41 years, including three at the helm of an NFL team. But he has never worked at a place like Nebraska, where football is the biggest point of pride and a 365-day-a-year passion in this state of 1.8 million.
"It might not be comparable to anywhere," Riley said Monday.
The scrutiny that wore on his predecessor is about to ramp up again with Saturday's season opener against BYU.
