Diaco Says Defensive Improvement Takes Time

In its first nine football games this season, the Nebraska defense has given up just over 400 yards and 30 points a game.

Following the Huskers’ practice yesterday, defensive coordinator Bob Diaco said the players are still learning his 3-4 system.

“Defending…is a year-long process and it is a years-long process to get the defense built back to being great,” Diaco said.

Kickoff for the Huskers’ game at Minnesota Saturday is set for 11 a.m.  The pre-game show begins at 6 o’clock on News Talk 900 KJSK and will be joined at 10:30 on KLIR 101.
