Martinez from Nebraska on the other hand seems to have improved his passing skills dramatically. They are also extremely deep at the RB position. If they can shore up that defense, they could be the team to beat. We'll see.
If Burkhead bounces back in the next couple week, have to feel good about Husker offense. Defense though...I think they'll be a notch or two better than last year on the whole (particularly the secondary), but they also lack a true playmaker like Lavonte David was last year. Teams will be able to run on them (a scary prospect after watching Mich St and Bell last night). Martinez will need to keep up the improvement to keep them competitive n potential shootouts with Michigan, Ohio St, etc.
Robinson is still going to be an explosive player. Alabama is just loaded on defense every year.
