LINCOLN — Play calling is a tricky business for any offensive coordinator at a major college.

What fans really want is for the OC to call plays that work. If a play doesn’t work, then it must be a bad call.

Posted: October 26, 2014

Beck frustrated by NU offense’s lapses
Posted: October 26, 2014

LINCOLN — Despite a record-setting day for Nebraska seniors Ameer Abdullah and Kenny Bell, it was obvious the Cornhuskers were none too pleased with their overall performance in Saturday’s 42-24 victory over Rutgers.

No. 16-ranked Nebraska (7-1, 3-1 Big Ten) scored six touchdowns and finished with 455 yards of total offense, which might have seemed like a decent day — at least on the surface. Digging deeper, Huskers’ offensive coordinator Tim Beck clearly wasn’t happy with what he classified as multiple lapses in concentration against the Scarlet Knights (5-3, 1-3).

Defensive linemen shine for Blackshirts
Posted: October 26, 2014

LINCOLN — Solid play from Nebraska’s defensive line stood out as the highlight for the Blackshirts during Saturday’s 42-24 victory over Rutgers at Memorial Stadium.

Defensive linemen Maliek Collins, Randy Gregory, Kevin Williams and Jack Gangwish combined for two sacks, six tackles for loss and six quarterback hurries for the No. 16-ranked Cornhuskers (7-1, 3-1 Big Ten). The Scarlet Knights (5-3, 1-3) finished with 348 total yards, but had difficulty mounting consistent drives.
