The Huskers wrapped up their final practice on Saturday before taking time off for the Holidays. The team will reconvene on Christmas day. Head coach Bo Pelini was happy with what he saw and now it’s time to celebrate with family.
Just because the players are taking some days off doesn’t mean they won’t have to do anything. They were all given a light running and weight lifting program to follow as they scattered Lincoln.
For now, all is quiet, but the team will hold meetings on Christmas evening before leaving for Jacksonville on Thursday. Head coach Bo Pelini says the coaches are on their own schedule. Even he has been in and out the last couple of days.
He says he coach knows what he needs to get done before Thursday. Pelini says it’s important to get home and be with the family. Being mentally fresh is just as important as the physical aspect.
