Could Nebraska 3rd down woes on offense be solved by targeting RBs more in the passing game?

  • We got a glimpse of what Maurice Washington is capable of in the receiving game against Wisconsin, and it makes Jake wonder that when Nebraska faces the 3rd and short and 3rd and 7s of the world, could they catch defenses off guard by getting creative with ways to get Washington/Ozigbo/other RBs open in the flat and let them be elusive to get the necessary yardage? Defenses are already scared of Spielman/morgan as WRs and pay lots of attention to them…catch them off guard and let a RB outrun a LB in coverage
