Lincoln-The Nebraska football team continued its 2013 spring practice season Monday afternoon, as the Huskers practiced in the Hawks Championship Center for just over two hours in full pads.
After practice, offensive coordinator Tim Beck spoke with the media, noting the team came back with a solid workout in their first practice after a week off of practice due to spring break.
“A little rusty but not bad. The effort was good, the tempo was good—better, we were working on that today.” Beck said, “We could be sharper, but I think for the most part it wasn’t too bad.”
With the 2013 Red-White Spring Game rapidly approaching, Beck likes how the team looks as a whole during spring practice.
“I like the way our guys are progressing, we still are a little bit a ways away to be able to do all the things we need to do, but I really like our effort, I like our toughness right now the way our guys are playing, but we have to be more consistent.”
Beck believes that to get to where the team needs to be before the spring game the team needs to create better depth, especially with some of the younger players.
“I think some of our younger players have to continue to develop in their game and carry it to the next level.” Beck said, “Now they have learned what to do; now they have to get better at doing it.”
The Nebraska football team has five practices until its annual Red-White Spring Game on April 6. The scrimmage will be televised on the Big Ten Network at 2 p.m. (CT) Continue to check back to Huskers.com throughout the spring for all your spring football updates.
