On Wednesday, Pelini was asked again about Jackson, who's been said to have an extreme amount of talent, but is still working on his consistency.
"Charles needs to fix Charles," Pelini said. "Charles needs to be somebody that we can count on to play within our defense and do what he's supposed to do. He's got the ability, there's no question."
With a small group of reporters, defensive coordinator John Papuchis echoed the same thought.
"When you are a safety and have mental assignment errors, it's hard to put you on the field," said Papuchis. "When you make mistakes, it's touchdowns. There is no question Charles has a lot ability, but he needs to be consistent on how he approaches practice throughout the week."
Big Red Report then asked Papuchis, is he close to breaking though?
"He's getting closer. The last couple days have been much better," said the second-year defensive coordinator.
