Nebraska senator decries Huskers defense after loss to Minnesota

Nebraska got housed by Minnesota, 54-21, on Saturday to fall to 4-6 on the season. The Huskers appear to be diving into a tailspin as the season comes to a close, and Nebraska senator Ben Sasse is as disappointed as the rest of the fans.

He’s referring to the 409 yards Minnesota racked up on the ground against Nebraska, which was the most the Huskers have allowed since 2014. The poor performance came after Nebraska defensive coordinator Bob Diaco decried previous defensive coordinator Mark Banker’s tackling system, saying the administration made the decision to use a rugby-style tackling program.

Nebraska’s program seems to be falling further and further into dispair under head coach Mike Riley, and his seat will continue to get hotter as Nebraska’s season comes to a close.
