Why not? The #66 in offense is the bigger reason for 4-6.
Because a great Defense wins championships in most of the past championships:



YearNational ChampionTeam Defense/offense rank at end of season
2019OSU after 8 gamesTeam Def=1//Off=3
2018Clemson (AP, CFP)Team Def=1//Off=4
2017Alabama (AP, CFP)Team Def=1//Off=15
2016Clemson (AP, CFP)Team Def=10//Off=14
2015Alabama (AP, CFP)Team Def=2//Off=30
2014Ohio State (AP, CFP)Team Def=26//Off=5
2013Florida State (AP, BCS, FWAA, NFF, USA)Team Def=1//Off=2
2012Alabama (AP, BCS, FWAA, NFF, USA)Team Def=1//Off=12

We are a long ways from talking about winning or even competing for National champoinships.

I think it was more of Wisc being off, overlooking Neb than it was Neb improving
Yeah, it was one game. People want to talk about playing this one close, yet we still didn’t cover the spread. Beat us worse than they were supposed to. Losing to the state of Indiana will have teams less than amped to play you

This doesn't make any sense. Wisconsin already had their game where they overlooked someone (Illinois), they have to win out to win the division, and they don't like NU. They absolutely were up for this game

I don’t think that is the way it works. Kids don’t look at the big picture to the extent they get excited for crappy teams because it will get them where they want to go. Yeah, they lost to the Illini. It ruined their season. They had a chance for the CFP. Now they don’t. Another reason to not get up for us.

Except winning the conference title. And getting another crack at OSU after their stadium played Jump Around.
There's no way they're overlooking anyone left on their schedule.

Has cost us most of our games.
Pretty much. For some reason, our defensive players try to make contact by hitting high. The only way to stop a runner is to take his feet out from under him. This should be taught daily in every practice. Kids who miss tackles should be on the bench.
