Nebraska offensive coordinator Danny Langsdorf tells me it's important for QB Tommy Armstrong Jr. to use "all of the play" this season. "Some of the interceptions had maybe better options," Langsdorf said. "Part of it is not asking the quarterback to do too much or having too many options for the receivers. Being able to say, ‘If we're getting this particular coverage, this guy should be good, and if we get a different look, we've got to move on to another player.'" Armstrong eclipsed 3,000 pass yards last year but also threw 16 interceptions, second most in the FBS.
