Lincoln-Despite a brisk wind and clouds, the Huskers continued to show the enthusiasm their head coach is known for in Wednesday’s practice. Nebraska ventured into Memorial Stadium for a spirited 2 ½ hour session this afternoon in preparation for April 19’s Red-White Spring Game.
“We had some good work today,” Head Coach Bo Pelini said. “Some good things and some bad things on both sides of the football, but we are making some progress. The effort has been good and we are staying fairly healthy. I like where we are at at this point in the spring.”
Practicing his team in full pads, Pelini described several areas the team needs to improve, including scheme and technique, but said the defense has learned a lot in two weeks.
“We are installing more everyday and throwing more at them technique wise, fundamentally and in all aspects, but we are getting better,” he said. “We are not nearly where we want to be, but it is coming. I am seeing some good things.”
Pelini pointed out several players on the defensive side that he has noticed this spring, including linebacker Cody Glenn and defensive end Pierre Allen.
“I like how Cody Glenn has adjusted to the linebacker,” Pelini said. “He has already become a factor on defense. There is no doubt that he has shown the ability that he can be a heck of a football player. We are excited about that.”
