NU defensive players defend Cosgrove

^AP-NE--T25-Nebraska-No Support,0108<

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) _ Leave Kevin Cosgrove alone.
Linebackers Corey McKune (Mc-KUNE) and Steve Octavien say the
Nebraska defensive coordinator doesn't deserve the heat he's been
taking from fans and media after poor performances the last two
Coach Bill Callahan reiterated his support for Cosgrove today.
McKeon called Internet postings about Cosgrove ``garbage.''
Octavien said it's the players' fault, not Cosgrove's, for the
way the defense is performing.
Octavien said Cosgrove is lining up the defense right. The
problem is that the defensive players are doing their own thing
instead of what they are coached to do.
