Lincoln  - The Nebraska football team opened fall camp on Wednesday, as 15 freshmen took part in performance index testing in the morning at Cook Pavilion and a hour and a half practice in shorts and helmets in the afternoon at Memorial Stadium.

The freshmen were greeted by temperatures that soared up to 100 degrees for their first day of practice. Head Coach Frank Solich was pleased with the attitude of the newcomers.

"It is always a little tough with only 15 guys out here," Solich said. "The pace was very slow with a lot of coaching and a lot of breaks with the weather the way it is. It is really a good group, a very easy group to coach. Right now they are very attentive and wanting to learn.

"These guys came in with excellent attitudes and a willingness to learn. They are a group that is very mobile and very athletic, and I think we have the right combination."

The Husker freshmen went through performance index testing Wednesday morning, as the coaching staff begins an early evaluation process of the newcomers.

"I was really pleased with the testing this morning," Solich said. "There are a few guys out of shape, but I think that is pretty common. Anytime you have an incoming freshman class, you have a few that way, but they will get in shape pretty quickly.

"The speed of the group is good. We did have three guys who didn?t test because of sore hamstrings. That factors in when you look at the test scores of the top three guys."

The Nebraska freshmen will return to the practice field Thursday at 9 a.m. and follow with a second practice at 3 p.m. The Husker varsity will report on Friday. Nebraska?a media day is also scheduled for Friday with lunch scheduled for 11:30 a.m. and Coach Solich addressing the media at noon.
