I was on a local talk station in Charleston South Carolina yesterday to talk about the upcoming Husker, Clemson Gator Bowl and offer them the Nebraska perspective.
The host asked about NU’s defense and I told him that our defensive line was really solid, but we’ve had some injuries at linebacker and are a little weak in the secondary. So, it’s no surprise when you look at the 2009 recruiting class, you see that it’s pretty heavy with defensive backs.
One reason, head coach Bo Pelini explains is that their defensive backs numbers were very low when he first came in.
Alright on the injury front. I talked about the linebackers being banged up in particular, Phillip Dillard. Pelini is hoping Dillard will be 100% come the Gator Bowl. Dillard was injured in the Baylor game back on October 25th.
