Commentary

Stryker

The Cornhuskers came out and performed exactly like their detractors around the nation said they would.

I hold to the belief that Nebraska will be particularly vulner­able against Big Ten teams that can punish defenses between the tackles.

When the coaches say there is a lot of work to do, everyone will believe that there really is a lot of work to do.

At the very least, it’s a buzz kill for an autumn of high hopes and expectations.

If you thought the scare stats from 2012 were a thing of the past, that wasn’t the case in week one.

One of my biggest concerns was the lack of overall pass rush by Nebraska’s defense.
