The Nebraska football team began spring practice by splitting a 2 ½ hour practice in helmets and pads between the Hawks Championship Center and the Ed and Joyanne Gass Practice Fields on Wednesday afternoon. Head Coach Bo Pelini sent the Huskers through drills and breakout work, as the team prepares for the annual Red-White Spring game on April 18.
“The first day was fine,” Pelini said. “It was just like you would expect on the first day.”
Pelini enters his second spring season at the helm of a NU squad that returns 13 starters from last year. The Huskers finished 9-4 in 2008, including victories in six of their final seven games, and capped the season with a Gator Bowl win over Clemson.
“There were some good things, but a lot of things we need to get fixed,” Pelini said. “It was a decent first day. The effort was good, but it is just good to get them out here playing some football again.”
Nebraska will continue with its 15 allotted spring workouts on Friday afternoon.
