After working through a long offseason, and participating in the 2012 Husker Fan Day on Friday, the Nebraska football team took the field for the first time, as they prepare for the 2012 season. NU practiced Saturday morning in only helmets at the Ed and Joyann Gass practice fields.

Head Coach Bo Pelini, now in his fifth year at the helm of the Nebraska football team addressed the media after the team finished their opening practice. Pelini said that he liked what the team showed him during practice.

“We had a good first day out there,” Pelini said of practice. “I liked the tempo, and I thought it was a good first day, it is what it was. Obviously, the older guys are way ahead of the younger guys, but everyone out on the field got significant reps, and the young guys got their feet wet.”

One of the main topics covered in Pelini’s session with the media was the difficulties of selecting a 105 man roster for fall camp. The remainder of the team reports on the first day of fall semester.

“It’s not easy selecting the 105, we have a lot of kids. There is a lot that goes into who we select, but at the end of the day we bring the guys that can help us out the most on offense, defense, and special teams.” Pelini said.

Pelini also talked about the importance of the mental aspect of the game.

“Every day the mental part of the game is as important as the physical part of the game. We talk to our guys about competing every day in practice.

Pelini also noted that Ryan Klachko is no longer on the team.

The Huskers will return to the practice field for their second practice of fall camp on Sunday as they prepare for their season opener on Sept. 1 against Southern Mississippi.
