Mitch Sherman ESPN Staff Writer 

These were the heartfelt opening comments of Nebraska coach Mike Riley to the media here in Lincoln tonight as he mourned Sam Foltz with the Nebraska football team: ""We are in one of those moments that you never, ever just want to think about having to go through. The whole state of Nebraska and the university and, of course, all the student-athletes and our team and our staff, everybody feels this way. You talk about broken-hearted, it's all there, all the parts, and this day will be stuck in time forever -- the news that you just can't connect or comprehend or understand."

Nebraska coach Mike Riley, remembering Sam Foltz: "I don't think I'll get this exactly right, but I think his introduction on the scoreboard before the game, where they introduce the starters: Sam Foltz, Small Town, USA -- Greeley, Nebraska. That's him. He's proud. He was really proud of it. He was really proud of being a Nebraska football player."
