Pulse: What to Make of the Blackshirts?
Entering the 2011 college football season, Nebraska was the popular pick when it came to the Big Ten’s best defensive unit. With returning stars such as Jared Crick, Lavonte David and Alfonzo Dennard, among others, the Huskers boasted the talent, not to mention the coaching. Three games in, though, the Huskers have allowed 24.7 points per game (67th in FBS) and 1,094 total yards (77th). Yes, they have missed Dennard, who has been out with a leg injury, but where does Nebraska stand as a defense and as a team? That’s what “The Big Ten Pulse” crew discusses in this web-only segment.
You can catch the Pulse every Monday and Friday night. Also, you can follow the Pulse on Twitter @BTNThePulse.
