Nebraska finished the 2012 season with a 10-4 record despite closing out the season with back-to-back losses. As we start to look ahead to 2013, HuskerOnline.com will begin our year in review position recaps. Today we analyze the linebackers.
The Huskers entered the season with a trio of fifth-year seniors, a highly-regarded JUCO recruit and a wealth of talented freshmen that ultimately redshirted because of the depth at the position. The performance of this group was uneven - they played spectacularly in some games, but were exposed in several others. With Sean Fisher announcing he doesn't plan to apply for a sixth year of eligibility, the position now belongs to Zaire Anderson and a group of athletic youngsters eager to leave their mark on the program.
