Weekend full of questions

After a busy and hectic 24-plus hours of Husker sports over the weekend, I came away with more questions than I know what to do with.
After the Husker volleyball team got done sweeping Saint Mary’s Saturday afternoon, Cindy and I endured the heat and humidity in Lincoln and made it through the football game, too, although we weren’t sure if it was ever going to end.
My football questions have to start with the defense. Why did the Blackshirts make it look so easy on Arkansas State’s first possession when the Red Wolves were forced into a quick three and out? It seemed like after that we didn’t have a clue how to stop their horizontal passing game.
Why couldn’t the Huskers get more of a pass rush, and why didn’t new defensive coordinator Bob Diaco blitz more? This wasn’t Wisconsin’s offensive line, so it’s concerning.
Why did JD Spielman look so fast on that kickoff return? Because he is.
