Nebraska Cornhuskers 2010 Offense Team Preview

It time to go in-depth and look at the offense of Nebraska.  Offensively the Husker will need to be vastly improved if they want to take things up another level to national prominence.   They were woeful against BCS conference teams averaging a mere 222 yards per game.  The good news is they have Zac Lee is back who engineered a good showing against a tough Arizona D at the Holiday Bowl last year.  The thing that could of held Lee back last year was an injury that he played with all year.  He was benched against Baylor and Cody Green got the start.  Cody Green wasn’t able to spark the offense and Lee came back against Oklahoma and lead the way the rest of the season.  Again Lee has to or one of the younger Quarterbacks like Green or Martinez has to step up to make this a championship year.

The Huskers have a talented duo in Helu and Burkhead in the back field.   They have to stay healthy so they can take pressure off the Quarterbacks and make the season go smooth.  They both lost time last season due to injuries and fortunately a freshman running back Dontrayevous Robinson stepped up to help shoulder the load.

The wide receivers and tight ends group could be the best of the bunch.  Niles Paul is the biggest playmaker the Huskers have on the team.  They have converted tight end in Mike McNeil and Brandon Kinne as there other go to wideouts.  Look for Kinne (my guy) to breakout and have an outstanding season for the Huskers.  They are deep at Tight End that is why McNeil moved over to wideout.  With guys like Dru Young, Ben Cotton, and Kyler Reed gives O.C. Watson weapons to use.

The line has all the tools to be vastly improved from last year.  With more depth than Cotton has had to work with in the three years he has been here.  They had problems opening holes at times against the best competition.  They brought in J.C. line prospect Yoshi Hardrick to anchor one tackle spot.  He should team up with Henry, Jones, Smith, and Caputo to round out the line.  Look for D.J. Jones, Qualye, Sirrles, and Thompson to give them good quality depth.

If Nebraska’s offense can take the next step they should be able to return there program to national prominence.  They have a chance to go a long ways and if everything breaks right they could contend for a National Title.  If you want to see Nebraska or any of the Big 12 teams, then you need to call Tickets For Less at 913-685-3322 or buy your College Football tickets online at
