MnB B1G Preview: UNL Schemes for Poor DT Play

Pelini has been one of the best defensive minds in college football. Yet, last year, something changed. That something was the poor DT play. In this article we discuss Nebraska's defense and the adjustments to take away the run.

Top 3-4 DE against the Run

This is about a month old, so it may have already been posted. But I just found it and I think it is a great read. According to Pro Football Focus Tyson Jackson (#1) and Glenn Dorsey (#6) were two of the best 3-4 DE in run defense in 2011. For everyone that says we need to trade/letgo these guys, this article lets you know how important they are to our Defense. Also, keep in mind, these guys are putting up these numbers without a dominant NT. Alot of people want to see Dorsey leave as a free agent, but I would gladly resign him to a reasonable contract (5yrs, $30-35 million). Some may see this as too much money, but keep in mind: a) $6-7million is the going rate for an above average 3-4 DE, and b) this would actually decrease Dorseys annually salary which was $10mil/year from his rookie contract. With Tamba being Tamba, and Houston really coming into his own, I think the Chiefs pass rush will take off this year. If we can continue to improve our pass rush, while maintaining our strong run play, this Defense is ready for big things. Now if only the offense could stay healthy to put up points...

Cal - Wazzu Report Card

About as much objective analysis as one can have over a 66-3 blowout. I did fail to mention guys like Schwartz and Guarnero, as well as Morrah, who was great in the runblocking game. On the other hand, Wazzu did play like ass the entire game. Thoughts? Objections?
