Lincoln?Nebraska completed its 10th workout of spring practice on Friday afternoon in warm, sunny weather at Memorial Stadium. The workout was attended by hundreds of high school coaches in town for Nebraska?s annual Coaches Clinic.


The Huskers worked out if full pads for about two hours, about 15 minutes shorter than most of their practices this spring. Head Coach Frank Solich said the warm weather on Friday was an adjustment for the players, and he also shortened the workout in advance of Saturday?s full-scale scrimmage.


?We cut it a little shorter today because we?ve got the scrimmage tomorrow,? Solich said. ?The temperature change from earlier in the week was pretty drastic and that led to the guys being a little sluggish today, but they worked through it pretty well.?


Saturday?s scrimmage will consist of about 90 plays ? 30 for each of Nebraska?s three units. Solich said the Nebraska?s running game on Saturday will focus on the I-backs, with the carries for the quarterbacks limited.


?The scrimmage will be similar to last Saturday, but the total number of plays will be cut back a little,? Solich said. ?I thought the effort was good in our first scrimmage, but in the second scrimmage you?d like to see things done a little better technically because they?ve got another week of practice under their belt.?


Saturday will be a full day for Husker coaches with the activities for the Coaches Clinic beginning with an FCA Breakfast at 7:30 a.m., continuing through the scrimmage which is set to begin at 3 p.m.
