Nebraska football practiced for the second time since being back from spring break Thursday. The Huskers had their first full-pad practice today, which allowed coaches to further evaluate players at each position.
Offensive coordinator Danny Langsdorf spoke to the media following Thursday's practice and addressed the quarterback battle, offensive consistency and more.
With eight of the 15 allotted spring practices in the books, the competition between Patrick O'Brien and Tanner Lee is in full force. One of the things Langsdorf said he has been most impressed with thus far from the two is their ability to check the ball down.
"I think checking the ball down has been really good," Langsdorf said. "You saw a third down period today where they've got a lot of people in coverage. It's maybe a three-man rush, and the ball's getting out of their hands to a back, and we're running for a first down or at least getting a completion to be able to have a chance to do it, rather than throwing it into coverage or having an interception. I think they're doing a nice job of utilizing those check-downs. With that, the completion percentage gets higher and the backs catch more balls."
