The number 39 is getting worn out today. It's how many new Huskers there are when you count this year's recruiting class and portal additions.

Some might say that number actually could add two to it, with wide receivers Zavier Betts and Isaiah Garcia-Castaneda both returning to the Nebraska roster after departing it at different points in 2022.

Christopherson: One meal at a time, Husker friends

One piece at a time, a legendary poet named Johnny Cash once explained. That's how he got it. He was singing about stealing parts out of "a 'sembly line" to build a car, but we don't have to get stuck right here on the details we wouldn't want shared at Sunday School.
