Nebraska Football : I'm Buying into the Recruiting Hype

I'm talking about new coaches, not new players.

Hmm. From 1985-2003, there were two coaches for the offensive line and NU generally had the best offensive line in college football. Since then, year in and year out the offensive line has been a major disappointment.

Now the talk is that NU offensive line coach Barney Cotton is going to have an assistant. This is encouraging. It doesn't matter who plays quarterback or who is offensive coordinator. If the offensive line can't open holes for running backs or protect a quarterback trying to pass, the offense will continue to fizzle.
