The Nebraska football team went live for the first time this spring in a full scrimmage on Saturday. Husker coach Mike Riley was impressed with the way the offense ran the ball in short yardage situations.
“That is one of things we have got to feel confident in that fourth and one package of plays that we have got to get the first down”, said Riley. “It is real important and that part of it looked really good.”
Riley also expressed disappointment with the NCAA’s decision to ban satellite football camps. Satellite camps rose to prominence over the past year as several programs conducted camps in the South and regions rich in recruiting prospects.
“I knew three years ago this is the decision that would be made and I still don’t get it. I just see it as an opportunity for coaches and players.”
The Huskers return to the practice field on Tuesday as they get set for Saturday’s Red-White spring game.
