Ne­braska ath­letic di­rec­tor Tom Os­borne had the video edited to delete a “Beat Texas” ref­er­ence at the end.

“One of the coach­ing idols in my life has been Tom Os­borne,” Brown said. “A lot of things we do are mod­eled af­ter coach Os­borne. I’ve al­ways been a Ne­braska fan. I love play­ing Ne­braska, I love be­ing at Ne­braska. Those fans are won­der­ful.” and mass, us­ing a scale pro­vided by the NFL.

“We fought that with Leonard Davis when we first got here,” Brown said. “We’re so much fur­ther ad­vanced now.”
