Nebraska OL: I'm confident we should 'beat the crap' out of Oregon
Tanner Farmer has never played in a college game.
The third-year Nebraska offensive lineman hasn’t seen the field yet, but he already dished out his first major piece of trash talk.
Farmer put all of his chips on his Huskers to roll against Oregon on Sept. 17:
Tanner Farmer: “Oregon will be our first big test and I am completely confident that we should go in there and beat the crap out of them."

Nebraska obviously still has to take care of Fresno State and Wyoming before the Ducks come into Lincoln in Week 3.
Another thing stood out about that comment. Based on Farmer saying “we should go in there,” it sounds like he thinks that Nebraska is traveling to Eugene in September. But Nebraska, of course, will host Oregon.
Whatever the case, that’s still a rare thing to hear an underclassman say about a game that’s six weeks away. And even though Nebraska is a popular bounce-back candidate, it’s still rare to hear that kind of trash talk from a team that won six games the year before.

Farmer was a four-star recruit in the 2014 class. Even though the two-sport sophomore — he wrestles, too — hasn’t played a game yet, he was named the starter at right guard.
He’ll have a chance to take on an Oregon defense that finished 115th in the country in scoring. But the Ducks hired former Michigan coach Brady Hoke as its new defensive coordinator.
It’s safe to say that Hoke won’t lack any motivation in his return to B1G country.
