Offense - Nebraska (Pro Style)
Defense - Multiple
Landed a 4* Guard from CO I believe. That's one down and eleven other scholarships to fill this year.
Dejon Gomes was incorrectly listed as a FS on the roster but will be used as a nickel back.
The word out of Lincoln is that Coach Pelini is not pleased with how his team played in their season opener against Western Kentucky. The final score in this one was a lopsided 37 to 3, but Coach Pelini knows that his team has more work to do if they hope to achieve their goals for this season. The defense allowed WKU to move the ball rather well, which is not something teams should do against the Blackshirts. However, the offense received mixed reviews they were able to move the ball well and score when needed. But too many times, they stalled out in scoring range and were forced to kick field goals. This is not as troubling to Coach Pelini because he acknowledges the transformation of the offense. In a somewhat surprising move, redshirt Freshman QB Taylor Martinez got the starting nod over incumbent Zac Lee and last year's back up Cody Green. Pelini said that Taylor flat out won the starting gig through his work in the spring and early fall practices. He adds another dimension to the offense not available with Lee or Green, he adds something that Nebraska has been lacking since their last National title runs a quarterback that can make plays with his legs. Taylor is fast, and showed it on a couple plays the real question is whether or not his arm will suffice when the competition gets tougher.
