What we learned
What did we learn from Nebraska’s first full week of spring practice? Plenty, including new positions, new numbers and plenty of install. And when it came to the defense specifically, defensive coordinator Erik Chinander made it clear that it’s all about building trust to get things started.
Eyes in the sky

Nebraska quarterback Patrick O’Brien may be known for his arm strength, but the sophomore is in a position to prove he can also make some moves with his legs in Frost’s offense.
Former Nebraska cornerback Chris Jones is preparing for the NFL draft, and all he wants to do is make his family proud.
