Lincoln, Neb. ?The Huskers wrapped up two-a-day practices on Wednesday afternoon with an hour and a half workout on the practice fields north of Memorial Stadium. Nebraska also practiced for two hours in full pads Wednesday morning in the stadium.
"We finished up two-a-days today, which is good for everyone," Head Coach Frank Solich said. "They are certainly tired right now, which is to be expected. They have pushed through two-a-days very well, so we are looking forward to one practice a day."
With the conclusion of two-a-day practices, Solich said he was pleased with the progress and attitude of his team, but admits that he is always looking for better execution on both the offensive and defensive sides of the ball.
"You always look for perfection during two-a-days, and you are never going to get that," Solich said. "But they worked hard at it, and that is always a good sign. I was satisfied with the fact that they pushed themselves to be a very well-conditioned football team. We still have to get better with execution. We have a ways to go there, but just about every team does. But I feel good about the mental approach of this football team."
The Huskers will begin practicing once a day on Thursday with a two-hour workout from approximately 7:30 to 9:30 a.m. and meetings scheduled in the afternoon. NU is slated for its final scrimmage of fall camp on Friday at 10:30 a.m. Coach Solich will address the media following Thursday morning?s practice. Players and assistant coaches will also be available at that time.
