The Nebraska football team hit the practice field for the first time in 2014 going through just a one-hour and 40-minute workout in shorts and helmets on Monday evening. Head Coach Bo Pelini enters his seventh year for a team that includes 14 returning starters from last year, and finished 9-4 including a Gator Bowl victory versus Georgia on New Year’s Day.
“I thought it was what you expect after the first day, I liked the tempo and I thought it was an efficient practice,” Pelini said. “I think guys competed and there were a lot of first-day mistakes.”
In an attempt to save the players for later in the season and keep them fresh, Pelini has cut the practice time nearly in half, doing away with walk throughs and individual workouts.
Pelini also announced that sophomore long snapper Gabe Miller will be day-to-day with a minor injury, as well as freshman linebacker Jaevon Walton will miss a few days due to a personal issue.
Skip the fluff, hear the highlights from Pelini’s press gathering.
