ESPN’s Bill Connelly points out a few things that need to happen for Nebraska to make a leap this year and going forward…how likely is that to happen?

-Connelly wrote that Nebraska needs to have redshirt years pay off for talent freshmen; the defense needs to defend the run better; and Nebraska needs to rediscover offensive efficiency (fell from 42nd to 86th last year in rushing marginal efficiency)

-Nebraska has yet to really become good in stopping the run in the Big Ten, and they’ve almost been in the league for 10 years. How has it taken so long for Nebraska to become even respectable in that unit consistently? And also, interesting numbers on Adrian Martinez and his struggles with passes to the sidelines…yikes
