The Huskers wrapped up their second day of spring football on Monday with one more practice coming up on Wednesday before the players depart for spring break. Offensive coordinator Tim Beck spoke about Nebraska’s no-huddle offense, and said he’s liked the tempo through the first, two workouts.
Beck isn’t surprised that the team looks sharp, “We’ve only played two months ago…a lot of guys got enough reps to be in the system to kind of know what we’re doing.” While Beck said some of the stats could be misleading given that the Huskers had big leads in early non-conference and ran the ball more to eat up the clock, he would like to see a little more balance in the run/pass ratio, which he feels can only help the run game.

So far all the reports and quarterback Taylor Martinez has been positive. As Bo Pelini mentioned as the start of spring practice, this is Taylor’s first year going into a season with the same offense under his belt for a second year. In addition to being familiar with the offense, there were some things, technique wise that Taylor needed to work. Beck explains. “He’s put the extra time in and you can see the conscious effort in doing it. It’s helping him.”
