Nebraska football held its fifth practice of spring ball Tuesday morning in the Hawks Championship Center in full pads. The first 30 minutes was open for the media to shoot.
Take a look at some of the sights and sounds from that period:
Scott Frost and a few select players spoke following practice. Frost said that today was the best day of practice so far, and that he could tell that some players are starting to get a hang of things.
“Today was far and away our best day as a team,” Frost said. “I saw great enthusiasm. We had a competition day, so we kept track of every rep, offense and defense. [It] came right down to the end. I’m seeing some guys start to get it, guys start to understand our schemes on both sides and what we’re looking for from a pace standpoint and an effort standpoint. We talk all the time about setting a new standard daily and then trying to beat that standard. We definitely had our best practice today so it’s going to be a challenge Saturday to come out and do better than that.”
Frost said that he can see improvement from everybody on the practice field.
“It’s a lot of things,” Frost said. “We’re stronger, we’re in better shape. After five practices, they understand schemes on both sides better. They’re starting to understand some of the detail that makes it work and I’m seeing a lot of improvement on both sides of the ball.”
