I'd agree if his passing game forces defenses away from stacking the los which should open up the run game. If the Huskers develop a serious running attack with a back opponents respect it could be a special season.If Tanner Lee puts up the numbers he is talking about, I think we are talking about a minimum 9 win season.
You're not wrong....I think the biggest factor will be our ability to throw which will open up the running game as teams can't stack the box on us like they have been doing for years. Also getting the TE involved will just open so many options. I may be wrong but i have a very good feeling about this year.
Anything above 60 would be awesome, considering our history. And if Calhoun is low on his prediction and Lee gets into the mid- to high-60s, that's just oh-so-sweet gravy on top.The only thing about the article that seems a little disappointing is Calhoun's predicted completion rate for Lee. I'd think low 60s would be Riley's minimum expectation!
The "balance" they are talking about is in number of plays, not yardage...that won't be close.Over 3,500 passing yards is a bit of a stretch I would think especially with Riley and Langs claiming they want balance between the run and pass.... unless of course we also put up 3,500 yds rushing. GBR
Not necessarily, it depends on how often they able able to go long for big plays. If they are able to complete a lot of long balls, Lee's overall percentage will be lower even though the passing game is more effective. If we don't prove to be able to go long often, it will likely mean a higher percentage of completions, because of more short passes.The only thing about the article that seems a little disappointing is Calhoun's predicted completion rate for Lee.
