LINCOLN — Even in an age of spread sets, bubble screens and jet sweeps, much of college football is still played between the hash marks.
That's by rule of design — offensive teams can, at most, begin a play with the ball on one hash mark or another — and, to some extent, tradition. Football will never easily be bent to the math that now governs much of baseball because of its physical element, its violence element, its tendency to draw itself into collisions smack in the middle of the field.
