Brandon Vogel over at Hail Varsity once again brings up a very important statistic to the Husker football program.
The most interesting part of the article is actually a quote from an ESPN Insider article written by Brian Fremeau.
Nebraska allowed 17 percent of opponent drives to start on the Huskers’ side of midfield (115th) and Nebraska started 26 percent of its own drives inside its own 20-yard line (110th).
They haven’t lost a regular-season game in which they had a field-position advantage since 2011, but were on the wrong side of that stat 15 times in the past two seasons (seven wins, eight losses).
Nebraska’s offense and defense may be good enough to run the table if it doesn’t shoot itself in the foot with field position and turnovers (minus-11 in 2013; 119th).
It's the offseason, so let's talk about it.
