If you have one choice, which is more important for Nebraska football this year: a reliable backup QB, or a dominant pass-rusher?

-Your first instinct at the question is to laugh, and say OBVIOUSLY you choose a dominant pass rusher

-But take a step back and think about it for a second. Nebraska’s defense SHOULD be pretty good. Not great, but pretty good. A dominant pass rusher could make them really good.

-But…..if Adrian Martinez gets hurt, and you don’t have a reliable backup QB, it makes defense pretty dang important, and puts the offense way back…if you have a reliable backup QB, you can have a decent defense without having to be great….
