MINNEAPOLIS — When Tim Beck took over as Nebraska's offensive coordinator in 2011, he had a natural competitive streak that cut through the professorial facade of most playcallers.
As he captivated a Football 202 audience the summer before his first season, he showed a few clips of Husker offensive players not hustling, not helping, not leading. He then showed a few clips of some the same players doing all those things. Beck aimed to create an offense that defined itself by those latter clips. Fast. Physical. Intuitive. Cohesive. Full of leaders.
