Posted October 06, 2018 04:25:58A week after the Huskers first loss of the season, we examine why their defense is so bad.
The good: The Huskers defense is a mess, and a major part of that mess is the way it operates.
If you don’t believe me, just watch this clip of the entire Nebraska defense in Week 1.
For starters, it’s not playing like a defense.
The Huskers’ defense was so bad in 2017 that it was able to pick up where they left off.
This year, though, it doesn’t look as good.
This is why Nebraska’s defensive front is so terrible: It’s not getting stops.
The Nebraska defense isn’t playing like it did in 2017.
In other words, the Husker front line is a bunch of idiots who get caught out of position by the rest of the defensive line, and they’re not stopping anyone.
Even in the first quarter, the defense looked like this: That front line didn’t stop the run.
Instead, they played like a bunch (or a few) of idiots.
It’s not that they were getting caught out.
They were, and that was why they had to make plays.
If you watch the game from the sideline, you can see that they’re playing like idiots.
They’re not doing anything wrong, they’re just not getting the run stops they need.
They’re not getting good looks, either.
Nebraska’s defense, as a whole, doesn’t get stops.
When they do get stops, they fail miserably.
The reason they’re failing miserably is because they’re so bad at stopping the run and the pass.
That’s not all of Nebraska’s problems.
There’s also this: Their defense is still missing the run game.
This is the big one.
There are a lot of people in the Nebraska defense who think that Nebraska has an elite run defense.
They believe that they’ve got the best run defense in the country.
The run defense is going to be a disaster for Nebraska.
The bad: As far as Nebraska’s secondary is concerned, they are completely dead last.
Nebraska has the worst pass defense in college football.
The Cornhuskers ranked 17th in the nation in pass defense DVOA in 2017, but they’re tied for last in the Big Ten with the Kansas State Wildcats.
They have a lot to work on.
I’ll get into some more specifics later. The good: There are some things that Nebraska’s offensive line has done well.
The most obvious one is getting open for big plays.
At Nebraska, running backs are running around like idiots and don’t get the help they need to get open.
This has been a huge issue in the Husky secondary in recent years, and it’s something the Huskies can fix.
Another thing that the Huskys offensive line can do well is get open for deep balls.
The offensive line also has good athleticism, which has helped the Husks get big plays downfield.
Then there’s this: Nebraska is one of the best pass rushers in the conference, but the Huskie secondary is still struggling to contain big plays up the middle.
On the other hand, there’s a lot that the Nebraska secondary can do that the Oklahoma defense can’t do: Nebraskans’ defense is just awful.
A big part of the reason that Nebraska is such a mess is because of how it’s operating.
One of the things that’s been a big problem in recent seasons has been the Huskas’ front line.
They play like idiots, and the defensive linemen don’t stop anybody.
That means that the defensive ends have to get beat on the perimeter.
That is a problem for Nebraska, as the Huskins are allowing a lot more yards on the ground than they should.
Here’s a look at how Nebraska’s front line stacks up against the rest: Now, the problem for the Huskin secondary is that they are one of a few teams in the league that can’t get open against the run or the pass, as shown above.
The only way that the Cornhusker defense can compete in those categories is if the Huski front line gets better.
Oklahoma has had some success stopping the pass this year, but that’s not how the Huskos front line has been playing.
Nebraska is the only team that can beat Oklahoma in those situations.
Finally, Nebraska’s pass rush has been pretty bad for a while.
Last year, the Cornhomers had the worst sack rate in the FBS.
That was a big reason why Nebraska was able (and likely would have won the Big 12) to finish 10th in total sacks.
This season, however, the Oklahoma front line
