So the question is - is there a first-team All Big Ten player coming up the ranks?
The rules of the game changed dramatically for Bo Pelini when Nebraska jumped to the Big Ten and needed at least one more linebacker on the field at all times, as opposed to in the spread-happy Big XII.
Can Nebraka be better on the defensive line next season? Maybe, but that's far from a given. Considering the loss in experience, it's also very possible that Nebraska could be even worse.
The pipeline is pretty solid in run blocking, but there are still a few too many kinks in pass protection.
Kyler Reed and Ben Cotton were bigger parts of the Nebraska offense while Shawn Watson was the offensive coordinator than once Tim Beck Took over. So how much will Nebraska really miss Reed and Cotton in 2013?
What's exciting with Beck's offense is what he can do with three, four and even five wide receiver sets considering this talent. If such a thing is possible, you could say that there's almost too much talent at this position.
