It isn’t all bad news when it comes to the Blackshirts
The previous offseason NSL took a look at the offense. Justifiably, we were all pretty excited about the growth we saw on that side of the ball. Husker fans are much less enthusiastic about the defense. Coach Chinander has been given a mulligan by most fans since he didn’t have a lot of playmakers to work with.
If I had to guess, the 2019 Huskers will probably only go as far as the defense will take them. Will Nebraska find a pass rusher? Will Zach Duvall be able to turn his defensive lineman into brick walls? Will the secondary take a step forward in year 2 of this scheme. And what about the linebackers??
All of that is in the future. This article is a look at the past. 2018 to be exact. It isn’t pretty, but it isn’t all bad news either.
