Key to blitzing Texas

I think I have found why Nebraska was able to blitz so successfully against Texas.  I know you're thinking its because of Suh.  Yes Suh had a great game.  Yes our O - Line has had better years, but Nebraska's coaches did something very simple...

Nebraska simply would wait until Colt gave Chris Hall the hike signal.  This is pretty easy to see if you re-watch any part of the game.  On most plays Nebraska defense would line up in a typical 4 - 3 defensive front.  Then once Colt and the offense has finished reading the defense.  Colt gives the hike signal and Nebraska would change the front and blitz package before the ball was hiked.  This pretty much ensured Colt was not able to audible out of any plays.

I hope our offensive staff is able to see this.  This is one reason the uptempo under center works as it also prevents the defense from know exactly when the ball will be snapped.

Let me know your thoughts...
