As Nebraska football finishes its 2017 recruiting class and gears up to start the 2018 cycle, Ryan Gunderson’s departure from the player personnel department should not go unnoticed.

Through the first five home games this season, Nebraska’s free-throw success was almost a better bet than layups. The Huskers made 84.9 percent (73 of 86) in those contests, all victories. In the five home games since, NU has lost three times while shooting 60.5 percent from the foul line (75 of 124).
