The college football season is still about three months away but the month of June is become even more important as teams get ready for a new season. Nebraska coach Mike Riley says June is about building for the future and getting next year’s team ready to go.
New legislation allows programs to offer 10 days of camps both on and off campus. It is also the month where players report to begin conditioning.
“So we will map out our June just about like we map out our fall camp”, said Riley. “Not necessarily with the football plays that you can run because you can’t do that kind of thing in June. But as far as the conditioning and preparation for fall camp we will have a specific plan that we will use.”
Riley says it is a balance of recruiting your next team with mentoring and growing you current team.
“So we have to use June in a very wise to get our team ready.”
The Huskers open the season September 2, at home against Arkansas State.
