Is our defense going to start passing to run up the score?What's Michigan got to do with what we were talking about. Nebraska is hurting at the DT position and will have a hell of a time stopping the run in the B10 throughout the season if you aren't strong in the middle of your defense. Michigan didn't run all over Iowa. That game was 14-3 midway through the 4th quarter. They had two big plays for those 14 points. They also got a lot of their rushing yards in mop up time after our offense kept forking over the ball with three and outs. Harbaugh was throwing the ball with a 28 point lead to run up the score. That will be remembered in Iowa City in October.
The point I'm making is that if you don't have depth and experience at the DT position...your LBs are fighting off blocks all day and it just sets up play action and beats you down. Nebraska better get help in portal inside...or it doesn't matter if you can rush the passer...teams won't throw as much and in the B10...they pound you.
