Your Nebraska Cornhuskers got after it one final time this afternoon. Practice number 14 was inside Memorial Stadium today, and had a couple of interested recruiting visitors. Brendan Radley-Hiles, Manuel Allen and Joshua Moore took in the workout as they are making a long weekend out of it.
Brendan Radley-Hiles has been making his rounds at practiced. Talked with Tommy Armstrong, Dee Riley and Donte Williams. #Huskers— Christopher Heady (@heady_chris) April 13, 2017
After practice, HC Mike Riley laid out some parameters of Saturday’s scrimmage:
Spring game rules from Riley:— Christopher Heady (@heady_chris) April 13, 2017
All live play except hitting the QB. There will be two teams split up but coaches #huskers
(turn the volume up)
That seems fine, to me at least. Get the first half in as regular as possible & second half buzzes along so folks don’t lose interest.
Also, seems like a tolerable tradeoff on special teams. Some live work but no big hitting.
Also, no odd scoring formats in this one, as in points for defensive stops and such. Sounds like straight-up football.
Mike Riley says the Spring Game will NOT be offense/defense. They are getting close to finalizing selections for the two teams.— Connor Happer (@ConnorHapper) April 13, 2017
A couple of guys we were all hoping to see may not be live on Saturday, which would kinda stink.
Nebraska practice No. 14 in the books. Next up: Spring game. Both Stanley Morgan and Aaron Williams in green, no-contact jerseys today.— Samuel McKewon (@swmckewonOWH) April 13, 2017
Looks like 80,000 is doable this weekend if the rain holds off.
