Nebraska Cornhuskers coaches Tony White and Marcus Satterfield both believe that they could have called plays better than they did against Michigan State.
They aren’t the only ones who were less than thrilled with their playcalling. On the other hand, it’s nice to see a new coaching staff be so willing to admit when mistakes were made. Especially in a season that has mostly gone impossibly right.
“I’ve got to put them in positions where they can go and have a chance to execute plays to get ahead of the sticks,” Satterfield said after Tuesday’s practice.
“I don’t think I was aggressive enough as a play-caller” — playing coverage instead of attacking. “I don’t think I gave the guys enough opportunities to go and unleash and make a play,” Tony White said during his press conference portion.
Both coaches believe there are things they can do to make the Nebraska Cornhuskers that much better. If they’re actually able to do it, they’ll need to do it soon. Saturday’s contest against the Maryland Terapins looms large.
