Do fans still believe a non-power run offense can win consistently for Nebraska in the B1G?

-It’s a big question about the whole operation and what happens going forward. It’s not a great sign that Nebraska’s running backs are either injured or young. Which puts a lot of pressure, again, on Adrian Martinez and receivers/tight ends that have a lot of newcomers

-You ask yourself if Nebraska is going in circles and why they don’t go back to what worked in the past. You want to be like Ohio State but can’t recruit to their level. There’s no reason why you can’t be like Wisconsin. How hard is that to accept? Can everyone get on board for that style or not?
