    There was a very loud proclamation earlier this year that stated the B1G would have adapt to NU, not vice versa. That NU would force its pace on its opponents. Apparently you guys weren’t paying attention?

    We were paying attention.

    The B1G has adapted very well. It's stunning actually. All 11 non NU coaches will share the B1G coach of the year trophy for their nearly instantaneous adaptation to Nebraska's new style of play.

    Wouldn’t be the first coaching staff that underestimated the competitiveness of the B1G.

    Penn State was supposed to dominate to conference when they joined. Didn't work out that way.

    It's different football, but I do believe this staff can not only compete in the conference, but win the conference given some time. Way too many here rattled their brass balls and ran their mouths that this year wasn't going to be a step back and that Nebraska could win the West. Reality is 0-5. Reality is next year NU needs to get back to a bowl and continue to improve. Looking like 2020 is a realistic goal to compete for the West and maybe beyond.

    I think what you are alluding too and what I think the desire is that if we havd consistent drives, even though shorter in drive time, quantity of drives will amount to more possession time. When we make mistake as we have it gives us fewer opportunities, but even worse it puts our defense on the field for a lot more time. When the defense catches up and can stop opposing offenses on a regular basis, you will see a lot more success on the score board. Does that makes sense?

    Just a model, not a real player. Nose is too straight.
