Tuesday Practice Report: Coordinators Speak

Lubick says Husker offense was ready for Illinois' even front; Chinander seeks 'elite' performance
Author:

Offensive coordinator Matt Lubick isn't ready to blame the Huskers' inconsistency Saturday on Illinois' unexpected use of an even defensive front. 

"We had another call sheet for if they come out in even. ... We used those plays," Lubick said after Tuesday's Nebraska football practice. "We didn't have the results that we would like to have."

Defensive coordinator Erik Chinander expressed disappointment  in the Blackshirts' start to the second half in Champaign -- giving up a 75-yard, clock-chewing touchdown drive. 

"It has to be taken as the most important drive of the game for us," he said. "It has to be a staple for us."

Overall, the defense "played a good football game," Chinander said. "They had an opportunity to play an elite football game, and we weren’t quite ready to do it yet. And that’s on me. That’s disappointing."
