Baylor football wants to be faster out of gate vs. Nebraska
Every weekday, on their way to the practice field, the Baylor football players emphatically slap a sign emblazoned with the message, "Start Fast." It’s a concept the Bears would like to carry over to the game field..... but haven't. The Bears haven't scored a first-quarter touchdown yet in Big 12 play.
Let's hope we keep that record intact - CB.
How to fix a flat: Why has NU's offense sprung a leak? (Omaha World-Herald)
"Against BCS teams in 2008, Nebraska finished drives with scores 44 percent of the time. On the other hand, the odds of a Husker possession ending without a first down were 23 percent. The numbers have nearly flipped. In '09, the Huskers score on 24 percent of their possessions against BCS teams. The chances of seeing a drive end with a three-and-out or a quick turnover? 37 percent."
No Nate Swift, Less use of the tight ends, Guess what happens? The World-Herald puts some numbers behind what we all know.

Big 12 predictions, Week 9 - Big 12 - ESPN
Nebraska 24, Baylor 14: Nebraska’s sporadic offense should have enough production to beat the Bears as the Cornhuskers will turn things around on the road after two disappointing home losses. Whoever plays at quarterback for Nebraska has to do a better job after the Cornhuskers committed eight turnovers last week in their loss to Iowa State. But the Cornhuskers’ defense should have a big edge against Baylor’s struggling offense, which will be piloted by freshman quarterback Nick Florence.
Lawrence wants others to know about concussions (Lincoln Journal-Star)
"I always wanted to save the last one for something big. Not a tackling drill on a Monday," Lawrence said. "I wanted 85,000 people to say, ‘That was his last play.’ That was one of the hardest things for me. I called my dad and I said, ‘Dad, I didn’t even know it was my last day of football.’ That was the hardest thing for me."
Big Red Wrap Up With Jason Peter
You can watch the Big Red Wrap Up Show streamed online. Jason Peter talks a lot. He doesn't mince words. Summary - Nebraska's offense breeds softness because we're not moving forward, not pounding at the defenses. We need to get a power running game going. I'm not 100% sure I agree with everything, but he's damned convincing. Worth a watch - CB
