Nebraska is 0-5. Owen Phyfe? Get it?
Geez. Tough crowd.
Anyway, there is a lot to be hopeful about buried in the stats from Nebraska’s first five games. There is also some very obvious areas of concern. To get at both of these I took a look at all the teams since 2006 who have started 0-5. The stats I’m looking are only for those games, so if a team did not finish 0-12 (and very few do) it doesn’t matter. I’m only concerned with what a typical 0-5 team looks like.
As it happens, Nebraska doesn’t look like a typical 0-5 team.
