Nebraska coach Bo Pelini says he's seeing signs this spring that his offense is more capable of achieving balance between the run and the pass.
The Cornhuskers ran the football on two of every three plays last season -- way too much, according to Pelini.
Pelini said Saturday that Taylor Martinez's improvement as a
passer gives him hope offensive coordinator Tim Beck can more fully
utilize the playbook this fall. One of the big pushes this spring
has been to improve Martinez's throwing motion.
Pelini also expects running back Rex Burkhead to stay fresher
because of the emergence of rising sophomores Ameer Abdullah and Andrew Green.
The Huskers finish spring practice with next Saturday's Red-White game.
