The former Manatee High quarterback is number two on the Huskers depth to Nebraska signal caller Taylor Martinez and last year was the least used backup quarterback in the Big 10.
But Bo says don't worry; that any perception Carnes might be a forgotten man is wrong.
Those are the words of Bo Pelini, the Huskers head coach who will utlimately decide how much playing time Carnes gets this season.
"We have a lot more confidence in Brion than people think," Pelini told the media as spring ball wrapped up. "I sometimes get the feeling that people think we don't have confidence in him. That isn't the case."
Carnes earned the backup job largely because of his spring game performance last season. With no spring game this year, questions arose. But Nebraska offensive coordinatorand quarterbacks coach Tim Beck says he is solid at number 2 and got a lot of work with the first team this spring.
"He looks like a different guy in the passing game," Beck said.
