As opposing coach's view
Quick fixes will prevent Nebraska from dropping far
"After what Colorado and Miami did to them, they're going to make some changes on defense. Switching from man-to-man to more of a zone concept should help them.... Quarterback Jammal Lord may not be Eric Crouch, but Crouch wasn't heralded when he started out either.... That offensive staff has been together a while and knows how to groom quarterbacks.... The idea that Nebraska is going to fall this year is baloney. If they do, it will be to, like, eighth in the nation."
