NU Productive in Sunny Conditions
Lincoln, Neb.- The Nebraska football team wrapped up its second spring season practice session on Monday, as the Huskers practiced outdoors for two and a half hours in short and helmets.
Following practice, Tommy Armstrong met with the local media to talk about the first few days of spring ball and the need to keep the level of competitiveness high throughout the spring.
"Every day is a competition. Anything can happen," said the sophomore quarterback. "Last year, my number was called. This year, I am the number one guy right now and I just want to keep that, but like I said before anything can happen."
The Cibolo, Texas native also discussed how the Huskers have emphasized a simplification of tactics on the offensive end.
"We have a bunch of young guys and last year we had a bunch of complicated stuff and we were just thinking too hard," stated Armstrong. "When it comes to being a leader and going out there and making plays, it's tough like that. But this year, we want to simplify things and make sure we are all on the same page and have receivers thinking one thing and quarterbacks thinking one thing. It's really easy."
Off the field, Armstrong has spent many hours in the film room preparing for the 2014 campaign.
"That's a major key right now. Just staying in the film room and understanding the playbook," commented Armstrong. "Just becoming a student of the game and getting better."
Nebraska returns to the practice field on Wednesday for its third workout of the spring.
