-Erik Chinander wants his defensive culture to spread through the team…is it possible or is Nebraska just doomed at their lacking spots?

-Sean Beckton said Thomas Fidone might play some games toward the end of the season…can you imagine 3 quality tight ends playing during that November schedule?

-Can Nebraska handle a struggling Northwestern team or is this bound to be close again?

Erik Chinander wants Nebraska’s defense to share its culture with offense and special teams…can that actually happen?

-The question becomes if the offensive line is actually capable of playing better or getting fired up, or if it’s just a bad line that no culture can fix

-However, culture can definitely be addressed with special teams. That’s a lot of ‘want to’ and execution. Could mean playing your defensive starters on special teams…right?

-How can the culture of the defense spread through the team?

-Nebraska’s having success on third downs this season, but when does that start resulting in getting more points on the board?

-Are you expecting some new starters on Nebraska’s offensive line this Saturday?

-Is Nebraska capable of handling a struggling B1G team like Northwestern or are we looking at another nail-biter with the Wildcats on Saturday?

Tuesday’s post practice session provided some interesting insight to Nebraska’s third down success and some special teams concerns

-Matt Lubick said that despite Nebraska’s scoring being down, they are doing well on 3rd down conversions, at a 46.34% success rate which is 3rd in the B1G and 37th nationally. So there’s a positive.

-Regarding punting, Mike Dawson said they’ll continue to rotate with Daniel Cerni and William Przystup, which seems odd…doesn’t it? And Sean Beckton spoke about the issues Samori Toure had with a lack of confidence in catching punts on Saturday

-Also..Thomas Fidone could possibly play some games at the end of year? Hmm…..

Nebraska might not win the West, but with the way they’re playing and how bad the division is…doesn’t it make the importance of getting to a bowl game that much bigger?

-We have spent this whole season discussing how the B1G West is average and Nebraska is better than they have been….and still they sit at 2-3 overall and 0-2 in B1G play

-The remaining schedule is difficult for Nebraska but looks a lot more gettable than it did 2 months ago, including Ohio State. Nebraska might be an underdog more than not, but who can’t they beat?

-Doesn’t this make the importance of getting to a bowl game that much higher?

Rick Kaczenski (Former Nebraska/Iowa DL coach)

-How long can a team be ‘close’ to winning before they either breakthrough or fall apart?

-What is wrong with Nebraska’s offensive line? Bad coaching or bad talent? 28 pressures allowed against Michigan State on ONLY 4 BLITZES!

-Notre Dame blasted Wisconsin after a massive 4th quarter…what’s wrong with Graham Mertz?

Did we see a defeated team yesterday at the podium or a pissed off team?

-Last week, we saw a pissed off team that was sick of being ‘close,’ and they lost yet another close game

-Do we see a team that believes they can get over the hump or one that can’t overcome itself?

-Also—Jake had a poll question from yesterday…is it harder to accept a loss on a Hail Mary or on a 66-yard FG?
