Nebraska practice Notes: First day of two-a-days a slow one for the Huskers
LINCOLN, Neb. — In the midst of the news about wide receivers coach Keith Williams’ arrest, the Nebraska football team spoke briefly after practice on Monday morning. This week kicks off the regular two-a-day schedule for fall camp, with practices in the morning and evening.
Some quick Cornhuskers notes that are non-Keith Williams related.
- QB Tommy Armstrong said after practice the young guys on the team need to get into the habit of being ready to play early in the morning. After a lackadaisical practice Monday morning, Armstrong encouraged guys to get used to the early morning practices since the Huskers will be playing 11 a.m. games this season. “We have to make sure when those guys come out, they’re on the right path and have the right attitude going into practice.”
- Running backs coach Reggie Davis was impressed with true freshman running back Tre Bryant at Saturday’s scrimmage.
- Armstrong was also impressed with Bryant, and said he already looks like a guy who has been playing college ball for three or four years.
- Davis said since Bryant is low on the Huskers depth chart due to the seniority of Terrell Newby and sophomore Devine Ozigbo, Bryant could see some time on special teams.
- Offensive coordinator Danny Langsdorf said the line is coming along and the biggest step for them right now is dialing in mentally. Langsdorf believes the offensive line, which returns zero starters from last year, could become a solid group and he has been impressed with their physicality already. Getting mentally ready to play is the next challenge, he said.
