Quotables:

Coach Danny Langsdorf on if there are any players to watch in the spring game:

"I think (Bryan) Reimers has looked really good. He's had a good spring, makes a ton of plays, and catches the ball well. Luke McNitt has played pretty well at fullback, Tanner Farmer has come a long way, (David) Knevel is getting some more work in there at tackle. There's been a handful of guys that you probably haven't heard much from that are looking pretty good."
