Marlon Lucky has a unique take on Chase Daniel

Posted by ESPN.com's Tim Griffin

The Lincoln Journal-Star's Steve Sipple had an interesting anecdote this morning on his blog about the interaction between Nebraska I-back Marlon Lucky and Missouri quarterback Chase Daniel at the East-West Shrine Game last week.

Daniel complained that he was spat upon by Nebraska players before the Tigers' 52-17 victory in Lincoln that has become known as "Loogiegate" by Missouri writers. Daniel also complained after the game that the Cornhuskers were the dirtiest team he had ever played.

Lucky and Daniel apparently forgot about those early disagreements when they were teammates, Sipple wrote.

"He's a pretty good dude," Lucky told the Journal-Star. "He's a real leader. He's not cocky, just a good leader."

But Lucky said that some aspects of Daniel's game might not translate well into the NFL because of his college development with the Tigers.

"He's not used to being under center, I can tell you that," Lucky said. "He was struggling under center with the handoffs and all that stuff. But when he got into the shotgun, he ran everything well."

Daniel struggled with a tough performance in the East-West Shrine game, completing only 2 of 9 passes for 1 yard before he was replaced by Michigan State's Brian Hoyer.
