Nebraska Football Spring Practice #9 Report

New, 33 comments

Scrimmage observations & transfer news.

David McGee/Corn Nation

Probably the biggest real news out of practice today was that Senior offensive lineman Zach Hannon will transfer and play for someone else next season.

Hannon will be a graduate transfer, so he won’t have to sit out a season.

As is it with reports in the spring, everything is wonderful. Players are impressive all over, and let’s face it, this is true - the “everything is wonderful” part because we have been through nine practices and we’ve heard about exactly ZERO major injuries at this point. And no arrests. And these are both good things.

The team “scrimmaged” today, “scrimmage” being a term used loosely.

Mo Barry!

Avery Roberts!

Roberts is a true freshman linebacker. We have a lot of linebackers, so if what Riley is saying is true, Roberts might actually be a very good football player.

The run game was so-so? What!!!! Nobody let “Run the Dadgummed Ball” guy know, or there will be hell to pay! This is supposed to be an upbeat spring!

Tyler Hoppes!

Matt Snyder!

Wait.... so should we be buying stock in Hoppes or Snyder? Hey, why not both! (Insert that gif here). It’s probable that tight ends will get plenty of work in an offense where there’s a quarterback who can complete check downs.

Tristan Gebbia!

Being old and unable to understand emojis, nor giving a damn about them, I really have no idea what this tweet is saying. The video is nice and football-y. The music sucks, but I’m sure the young people will think this is neat.

This concludes spring practice report #9. Is there a lot of meaty information here?

Well. Yes! Of course there is! We’re going to have a good offense next season because we have a quarterback who can complete over 65% of his passes. And we’re going to have a good defense because it’s obvious, “Run the Dadgummed Ball Guy”, that our improve defensive line is capable of shutting down our improved run game.
