Lubick is working on the details for Nebraska Football

You have heard me talk about a lot over the course of the past couple days how Nebraska football is trying to work on the little things. We have heard it from Greg Austin, and now we are hearing that Matt Lubick is doing that as well.

According to quarterbacks coach Mario Verduzco, Lubick is working on refining the base plays in the playbook. This is certainly intriguing for several reasons.

For one, this means that the team is looking to get better at the things they do well. This is certainly encouraging. A lot of times, you will see a game plan where a team focuses on what they do well and nothing else. Oftentimes, that leads to success. So too does repetition.

Paying attention to the little details was something that was missing for this football program last season. Often times, they would get tripped up on little things and that would derail their progress over the course of the game.

If Nebraska football is able to master what they do well, then this will be able to open up the playbook in other ways. The program will be able to surprise defenses by calling an out-of-the-ordinary play call, and it will give them the flexibility to try out different looks and different sets. I like that they are working on the crucial things first.

A lot of times last year I thought the Nebraska football program  did not really have one specific play or set that they could go to and know they could succeed in. I felt that at times the playcalling was very much all over the place. It sounds like that is beginning to change.

If Lubick feels comfortable calling certain plays and he is able to relay that to the offense, Nebraska could be an offensive machine. This can also factor in with working to the strengths of certain players. Maximizing player ability is also something that Nebraska failed to do last year. I have a feeling that will change as well this year.

I’ll be interested to see what sets Nebraska football feel most comfortable in. Nevertheless, it sounds like the coach is making his impact on the program, and in a positive way. He is certainly one of the better offensive minds in all of college football. Now, he is bringing that same detail-oriented mindset to Nebraska. That is a very good thing.
